Woohoo for famous syphilis!
Supposedly syphilis crossed over to humans from sheep. So if it hadn't have been for some pervert sheperd way back when...
BTW, I've always wondered, is syphilis "the clap" or is that some other venereal disease?
"The Clap" is gonnorreah, not syphilis.
wow. all of those famous men, frequenting prostitutes?
Well definitely from some of them. But there are plenty of respectable folk who have stds too. Just takes sleeping with one person who slept with someone who had it, and on and on.
Not a list I'd like to be on!
I don't know, goethe and oscar wilde are pretty good.
or are your eferring to the syphilis aspect?
Indeed. Quite the long list though, only highlights.
yay for tertiary syphilis and rotting noses!
I have that book. Or rather, I have Tastless Lists by Karl Shaw. It's AWESOME :D

When I was little and the movie Anastasia had come out, my mother informed me that the real Rasputen had syphillis and that's why he was crazy.
Really? Now that I did not know. I thought he was all spiritual and schtuff, wonder who he was cohorting with to obtain that.
I think Theodore Hertzl as well. Twice.
And I also thought it came from llamas...

If anyone wants an mp3 of Christopher Walken reading Poe's The Raven I'd be happy to ship it. :)
DUDE! Awesome!!! I wonder would I be able to find it on limewire, or? How would you ship it? *confused* Does that mean uploading it?
