    I'm sure something of that nature will give rise from some truly informed politician.

    Sex, what's that?

    I just use the method doctors use for hyperactive kids. They give them speed in the for of ritalin... therefore I put some herpes on the gonhorrea. I now have gonhaherpalyphillis. I am indestructable now.

    Re: First Antibiotic-Resistant Gonorrhea Cases Detected in North America

    A quote on this from something I read on reddit from a seemingly informed writer castigating the sensationalism of the headlines:

    Although antibiotic resistance is major emerging problem, this article is very sensational and misleading. They report that the bacteria is resistant to oral cephalosporins which we haven't used as primary treatment for gonorrhea in some time in the US. First line is rocephin ( ceftriaxone) which they say eradicated the infection in all the patients with the resistant strain. They failed to mention that ceftriaxone is also a cephalosporin which still effectively treats gonorrhea.

    Right now, the main path of resistance is over expression of efflux pumps. There is a solution to this, we just haven't figured out how to mass produce it with repeatable results.
    "Efflux pump inhibitors" is the next big thing.

    Let's not forget the human varieties and the massive amounts of human and bovine hormones that enter our water supplies.
