    No it wont cure them...but as he said..He`s trying to raise awareness. Doing something daft, that gets you noticed is as good a way as any to do it I suppose!

    you didnt say it to my face,you said it over the internet,if you´d have said it in person you´d be on the ground bleeding from a broken nose right now as i take offense from it and just because he says something or does something stupid doesnt give you a license to do it as well.

    ^ right on.

    Anyway, I found this strange. It just seems like another crazy stunt to grab attention. I doubt that many people care what happens to this guy.

    he`s not doing it to `cure` them you idiot; he`s doing it for the same reason all people do unusual/extraordinary things to draw awareness and raise money for charities.

    its a fixed wheel, often used for velo tracks, so, its a direct connection using a chain, also brakes not needed so much, as braking can be done with pedals. and, stupid people who generalise using a geographical base.

    I see how that is going to cure HIV. He`s gonna do the superman thing, where he turns back time, so much so that he then goes and kills those dang monkeys that spread HIV

    What? What, what, what. No no no. He said he`s riding backwards so he can (get attention and) raise awareness towards HIV, AIDs, and the use of marijuana. I.E. He`s basically that guy that says, "I`m going to jump off this building to raise money for homeless shelters." But he wants people to see what he`s doing and want to listen to him while he talks about HIV, AIDs, and Marijuana.

    and you are threatening me over the internet, so you have no proof that you could beat the fuc|< out of me.
    and if you did that here in america, youd be on the ground with a broken leg from the police, and get 20 for assaulting a minor. say hi to bubba for me, hope you like being his bit§h.

    and he is INDIRECTLY curing it. by gaining awareness for the disease, he helps get more donations for the resaerch, etc. etc.

    actually i´m saying that if you´d make a racist insult like that to my face i´d break your nose and win the legal case because you gave me a legit reason to do it by provoking me,in other words,watch what the hell your saying and dont say it over the internet unless your capable of saying it in real life face to face with someone.And as to whether or not i could beat you up,sorry,trained and formerlly employed in private security sector,meaning i´d handcuff your ass and turn you over to law enforcement for racial insult(which is indeed a crime in germany),might not look like it,but that just goes to show you another reason to not go spewing racist remarks and insults,because you never know who your really saying it to,for all you know could be a cop,sec guard or if your really unlucky they got a wife from the country you just insulted.

    hmm....so by me talking to another person, that allows you to assault me and cause me bodily harm? and then i would hang your sorry a$$ out to dry with the fact that you said FORMERLY employed. which means you no longer have the right to handcuff me for saying `naughty words`. which, even if you could do that, you wouldnt have evidence. you need at least probable cause to arrest someone for something as trivial as that, at least in the US.
    and, would you tell me when Europe became a country? because i dont recall that ever happening.

    Hm. Backwards-bi-cycling seems just a bit dangerous, but if gets people talking then it`s all the better, I guess.

    VikingGuy, you are seriously over-reacting. Just lean back in your chair, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths; you`ll feel better.

    let me rephrase it so you understand what part of the field i work in:inactive and currently not accepting contracts due to recovery time from injury,and anyone,even a civilian can handcuff you if you commit a crime,even in the USA,its called civil arrest,they have full right to detain you and turn you over to state law enforcement once they arrive,and the EU,look that up(union of multiple european countries with general laws applying to all),and germany is a country,sorry,the united states isnt the only place on earth thats managed to become semi civilized.

    and as to calming down,i´m not doing anything except explaining to him that he made a racial insult which i found offensive and advising him to keep opinions like that to himself in the future before he happens to piss the wrong person off,i dont have anything against him but i think its better if he understands that you cant go throwing a insult at several hundred million people in general just because a lone idiot from them does it.

    but thats exactly what you are doing.
    and, the EU (yes i knew what that was before you `explained` it to me, you ignorant ba$tard) isn`t a country. it is a COMMUNITY of countries in Europe that work together economically.

    and for civil arrest, learn your facts. while, yes, it is legal in the US, it has to be a felony. like, for example, battery, which you have already threatened to do to me. or, it can be a breach of peace, theft, or me destroying your stuff, none of which i have done. and also, the 14th amendment protects me from private security sectors like yourself.
    and i also have nothing against you, since you only retaliated against my comment against yoma4. she "insulted hundreds of millions of people", just like i did, or so you say. thats means you have a double standard against people from Ameica and people from Europe.
    and, by you calling her an idiot, that means that you are defending an idiot, which, possibly, might make you one.

    in the end..that ruthless guy is a scumbag for saying that about US, comments like that aren`t needed when someone is trying to do something for raising awareness, its just a different approach.
