Stop approving youtube!

Why? It's the black hole of stupidity!
Should we also stop approving Stormfront and RR because it's like shooting fish in a barrel? I've heard that argument too.
Then I've also heard complaints when the board is slow, so there's no pleasing all of the people at any time.

Given that monkeys are your faverate (sic) animal, are you trying for some sort of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery?
No, I'm sorry. That's insulting to monkeys.

Yeah, no. There are other modes of transmission, you know. From what little I could gather from the first 75 or so results on google (none of them seemed particularly reputable, unsurprisingly) nobody's really sure where it came from. The monkey to people idea comes from the fact that there are several species that carry a similar virus, SIV (which is relatively harmless to most of them). The closeness of humans to other primates makes it plausible it crossed the species boundary somehow, but this is uncertain. So we don't know if it came from non-human primates or somewhere else, and we don't know how it might have crossed over if it did, and we don't even know that the first person that had it was black.
With all that uncertainty, might as well hush before someone hears you, takes offense and beats you up.

Youtube is like /b/. If we approve youtube posts, why don't we approve /b/ posts?

I've never seen any /b/ posts submitted in the public admin...that's why I've personally never approved any. Herd to approve submissions that don't exist.

We all get the idea with youtube. Kids + anonymity = sad hilarity... Lets stop with the youtube quotes.

/b/ posts get deleted after just a few hours. So anything that people said on /b/ would be unverifiable by the time it started working its way through admin. So it would never get approved.
You'd have to have someone screen cap something especially offensive and retarded, then find a permanent host for it. And considering that people on /b/ quite often are Poes and it's really hard to tell who is who to get a handle on who is being serious and who is being sarcastic, it's usually not worth the effort.
As for Simian Immunodeficiency Virus: yes that's real. A disease that takes 20 years to kill a host is almost completely silent in an animal that lives only 15 years. However just as with human to human transmission, the fact that SIV presumably made the jump at some point to humans and became HIV (on at least two separate occasions) does not mean that any sex was involved. There are a lot of ways to get blood contact with wild animals. Very few of them involve the penis in any way.

You are an idiot. Good luck trying to fuck a monkey, you'd get fucked up with a banana up your ass.

Blazergamer's dad apparently fucked a monkey.

AIDS most likely came from blood contact, i.e. a hunter slaughtering a monkey had an open wound, and *voila!* the virus was transmitted.
