3/8     Is there law that says a couple must have blood test before getting
        married?  Thanks.
        \_ didn't ben ask elaine to get a blood test in the graduate?
        \_ no. but you're stupid if you don't.
           \_ What are tested?  Only AIDS and STD's?  Or other diseases?
        \_ I thought there was one where they checked for stds and some rare
           weirdo blood combinations that produced 2-headed babies, or some
           similarly horrible things... -John
        \_ Testing for STDs is pretty useless before marriage now that
           most people who would be at risk are already sleeping
           together anyway.
           \_ That's a BETTER reason. You can find out "hey you slut you
              gave me vd!" and dump the bastard.
              Note: Not all STDs are immediately apparent to the victim.
        \_ Yes, in some places.  Call your county offices to find out if
           you live in one of those places.
           \_ But not in California.
        \_ Beginning January 1, 1995 it was no longer necessary to have a
           blood test in California.  The test itself was rather arcane at
           the time it ended.  It test for some things like Gonorrhea, but
           not for more serious diseases like AIDS.
           \_ Back in 1990, there was an informed consent statute on the books
              which required AIDS testing.  This was CA state only and was
              not renewed in later years.  Note that just because you aren't
              REQUIRED to get tested doesn't mean it isn't a good idea.

        \_ CMGI will hit 250 by 3/11 earnings date.  It will not split
           however.  Consolidation in the 125-150 level afterwards and
           take off again by next earnings date.  350-400 by the next
           earnings report.  It'll split 3:1 or 4:1 then.  I have made a
           lot of money on CMGI.  I hope you do too.

                   me if I'm right.  And I will fuck off and never post about
                   stocks again on the motd if I'm wrong.  -cmgi fan
                   \_ How about you post your name right now, so that we
                      can make fun of you if you're wrong?
         \_ FTC will not allow the AOL/Netscape merger.  Sun will end up
            buying Netscape instead.
