I Have Proof

...that common sense is dead in America.

I was watching Iron Chef America the other night and a commercial came on for Valtrex. Why they would be showing a commercial for genital herpes medication during a cooking show, I have no idea, but I am getting sidetracked.

The commercial listed several interesting facts about genital herpes, then they dropped this bomb on the viewer:

In fact, one study found that up to 70% of people who had herpes got it from their partner when their partner had no signs or symptoms of an outbreak.

I really need to analyze this statement a little further.

First off, about how many people have genital herpes? According to their website, about 50 million people in the US have genital herpes.

OK, so what are the signs or symptoms of an outbreak? Well, they include red, sensitive skin, visible sores, blisters, and even "discharge". Simply put, it would be awfully difficult to miss the signs, even in the throws of passion.

From the data collected above, I can safely assume that approximately 15 million people in this country saw an infected hoo hoo dilly or chacha and hit it anyway.

Like I said, common sense is dead.
