Some people who got HIV in their blood (but haven't reach AIDS yet), use some needles to be injected into their blood and then, they place the needles in some places (mostly in the theatre seats). So, if an unlucky man get sit on it, the needle then will get injected to that man and the HIV will enter that man's blood.....so horrible.. :(

I don't know whether it's just an issue or not, but I think prevention is the best way for it.

I heard this too, but I think it is another hoax. Long time ago, in early period of when HIV started to be popular, it was reported that people put razor blade on gliders at swimming pool, water park, etc., thus when a visitor is gliding on it, they will be cut, bleeding, and the HIV-infected blood will spread to another visitors in the water.

Or, HIV-infected person brings needles that already infected with the virus. That person will inject it while she/he is in the crowd. This rumour was very successful at that moment, that none likes to be in the crowd and getting suspicious to strangers around them.

Another thing, HIV-infected people, or who think they got HIV, smear themselves with their own blood and touch people around them with that blood. However, this method is to obvious, they will easily stay away ffrom the bloody people.

Well, hoax or not, we need to be careful. And I believe we know very well how to preotect ourselves from HIV. If you are not sure, please get some infos, we would like to help you here ;)

Careful there... unless you have some solid statistics to back that up.

Generally.... cmon ...

Umm i also would just like to add that needle or the blade or blood smeared is not a likely way of transfer because the HIV Virus doesnot survive in air. When it has contact with air it is no longer alive ...
