    I have indeed, and I still find it weird how they aren't treating the case harshly, but then I'm not a lawyer so I have no idea how severe the punishment should be :/

    Keep practicing the German people, German guys are worth it :mmm:

    Got up this morning, looked at the map, decided I'm going to Venice. :woo:

    Was it accompanied by flashing lights, Pokémon-style? :p:

    "Leider ist kein Jung involviert", I'd guess. My opinion of my German varies depending on what context I'm in. I keep feeling guilty when I'm not brave enough to use German here in Vienna.
    Aren't Italian trains not on the inter-rail thingy?

    Yeah I suppose it would be something like that. I need more German practise.

    And there's no point doing German in Vienna! I ordered something in German and the barmaid replied in english. They just speak much better English than we can German.

    Do what I told you. I promise you.

    If you had a more comfortable handling of German you'd understand babes :p:

    I still think you like a German Guy
    I checked google translate. The sentence is nonsensical :p:

    I don't know any german guys!

    9) Travels frequently to big cities or Asia
    Some husbands will spend a great deal of money traveling far from home to hide their deplorable same-sex actions. Big cities offer indulgence of every kind. From gay bars and clubs to prostitutes and sex bathhouses, a man seeking encounters can find them easily if he’s so inclined. Is there ever really a good excuse for a husband to visit Thailand or San Francisco without his wife?
    12) Love of pop culture
    It’s quite common for young men to enjoy the science fiction end of popular culture, but when your husband becomes overly obsessed with romantic and feminine shows, that is cause for alarm. Gossip websites, Glee and The Golden Girls are three well-documented icons of the gay movement that genuine heterosexual men avoid.

    Ok firstly I said ask the German GIRL here :p:, she posts a lot.
    Secondly it does make sense - allow Google translate.

    Basically in German you "kann" something means you can do it basically.
    So Ich kann Deutsch would translate into English as I can (speak) German. I could of course have written Ich kann...Sprechen - but there's no need

    I had a (reasonably) old teacher who hadn't lived in Germany for 25-30 odd years, so I learnt very archaic and precise german.

    (Well, obviously not archaic, but I certainly didn't learn any slang).

    You need to find a sympathetic American lesbian. That'd be the easiest way.

    (slight caveat in that I know almost nothing about the German legal system) I imagine that she got such a lenient sentence because a) she was tried in a juvenile court because she was 17 when she had sex with the men and b) she'd been told by her doctor at the time that there was pretty much a 0% chance of transmitting HIV. Those seem to have been the mitigating factors taken into account with sentencing.

    I wrote a blog post about the law in England and Wales relating to HIV transmission. I feel bad to pimp my blog, but here's a link if anyone's interested.

    That's a ridiculously harsh sentence. HIV can't even be transmitted by saliva.

    It can if you have an ulcer or a sore in your mouth. I can understand why someone would be worried if they'd had the saliva spat into their eyes.

    The biting thing is worrying. But yes, 35 years or whatever is was is far too harsh.

    Not by saliva alone, but there is a theoretical risk of transmission if there are cuts, abrasions or open sores in the mouth and the infected fluid reaches a mucous membrane in a similar condition. As far as I'm aware, there has never been a case of transmission by that method however.

    Total overreaction in that case^ though.

    EDIT: Re-read the article (only skim read before posting), actually not that harsh. It seems he was deliberately terrorising with the threat of infection, that's a different story altogether, coupled with violent outbursts etc.
