    Actually HIV came from monkeys. Take a look at this link and read down a bit.
    http://www.avert.org/origins.htm

    Three of the earliest known instances of HIV infection are as follows:

    1. A plasma sample taken in 1959 from an adult male living in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo

    2. HIV found in tissue samples from an African-American teenager who died in St. Louis in 1969.

    3. HIV found in tissue samples from a Norwegian sailor who died around 1976.
    Looks like Congo is the winner. Knowing that it came from monkeys one would assume that the transfer from monkeys to humans took place in a country that has monkeys I can't name many industrial countries that have a large monkey population

    The moral of the story is don't mess with monkeys.

    Or, rather, cook your monkey meat items very very well, etc. The reigning theory is that it was a virus that jumped to humans from primates, and was possibly less deadly to the original hosts.

    First what is weird about this statement? By that I mean just totally out of the blue, off topic, from his question.

    Sounds a bit like ol' sharp eye is being a bit paranoid, as well as uninformed.+

    This situation reminds me of a time i came home really late, and really stoned. Now understand this was when I was 15. Anyways My mother was waiting for me on the couch. So she begins to do the usual line of interrogation. After she had asked me a few questions she started asking about the people i was with, I interupted her saying "But its not like they smoke weed." THis prompted my mother to check the eyes and smell the hands.....BUSTED.

    My question to you Sharp eye, What do your hands smell like?
