Did he have HIV?

Where did that come from?

Pneumonia is a pretty common hiv/aids-related illness.  "Dying from pneumonia" is sometimes a euphemism for dying from hiv/aids-related pneumonia. The thought briefly occurred to me, but not enough to warrant vocalizing it.

ditto.
The thought never occurred to me...people *do* die of pneumonia w/o having HIV you know...And despite his disease being in remission (only for a couple of years though), it does cause lung problems and inflammation and stuff. 

...Yes, and it's statistically less probable (see CDC statistics). 

I didn't say anything about statistics or probably, nor did I infer that it was some common thing, just that people *do* die from it...

This is why I did not broach the subject initially.  No need to wield your sword, Xena.

dd, get it right. It's a chakram. see photo

But seriously, Xena, our initial reaction didn't warrant a disclaimer. We know people get pneumonia without necessarily having AIDS.

this came out of nowhere.  :-[

Nah...he's been sick for a while.  Actually, I got a text a few days ago saying that he died.  Obviously false, but he was in critical condition.

Yeah, but he wasn't Richard Pryor sick. He was still doin shows.

Ok, so I'm listening to the new Nas album on the way home from seeing the Dark Knight. I'm curious as to how Nas can have a song dedicated to Louis Farrakahn and then basically call Jeremiah Wright a #%@!? Wasn't part the Wright controversy due to Wright's unwavering support of Farrakahn?

...or for that matter, how you can call anyone a #%@! and then wear this:

:D lol. No, I hate those people, too. I also hate those people who talk on their cellphones while in the stall in a public restroom. That really disrupts the ambiance.

The only thing I could think when I read this was germs...Ewww.

Has anybody else seen this video?  Got it in an email and as I watched, I wished I were there so I could snatch the little boy up.

I saw that a while back. But I almost expect as much from nilla children...

lol.  My grandma beat the *&^% out of me with a house shoe just for talking back.

lol I was contractless at $40/month.  You're already paying almost the cost of an iPhone plan and are using a crappy carrier to boot. So yes, I'd say the $200 for the best phone on the market and for superior nationwide coverage are worth it.

ETA: are you one of those incredibly annoying walkie-talkie people?

Ironically, after calling all of the local AT&T stores and being told I would have to wait 21 days, I called the local apple store and was told they had plenty and to stop by any time.

After using it heavily for 4 straight days, my only "major" complaints are: inability to open links in new windows, no ad blocking feature, no background loading of web pages, and no copy and paste.  But I've found fixes for the first two, and the background loading is understandable.   And all of them are but mere bird droppings in the sea of utility I derive from the device.

So I still wholeheartedly recommend your buying one.  You will look that much more cool in sbux, wearing your beret :D

:D I'm growing dreadlocks so the beret and the apple products have a full effect. Right now, I contract-less with Sprint at $65a month. Is a $100+ cell phone and two-year contract worth the move? I hate commitment (one of the many reasons I'm single).

7S, did you ever get your iPhone 3G?  Got mine tonight!  I'm already wondering how I ever lived without a smart phone...

No, I went to the apple store and they wouldn't even let me stand in line because it was so long. Then on the way back to the apple store the next day, I talked myself out of buying it. I thought I was over the iPhone until I read your post....you haven't had any problems?
