More people need to die from proper, rot-your-face-off syph, not less. are you being serious?
Indeed, but only in the short term. See, a few initial deaths often prevent greater numbers of fatalities later on.
Are you concerned about preventing death or are you encouraging sickness as a prevention of sin?
In this case, one can do both simultaneously.
Or - and this is just a thought - you could just hope that people don't suffer physical ailment, period. i dunno.
Where did I say that I hoped people would get syphilis? (Don't dig too deep. I'm sure I've wished it on someone at some point...) Where in the last string of quotes have I wished it?
Quite the opposite, actually. Let me tell you a story.
There once was this man. He built a house and a well next to it. Every morning he'd wake up, get out of bed, and then take a dump in his well. You know, the one he used to get water to drink, and to wash himself with. Well, one day he came down with dysentery. His three friends come up to see how he's doing. His first friend, named Mronohtro said, "Hey bro, I just beat up this working bloke and jacked his g-money. Now you can go to the doctor!" So homeboy goes to the sawbones and gets some antibiotics. Well, a few months later he comes down with dysentery again. His buddies come back. His second friend, Stoor Peed said, "Yo dawg, I heard you like feeling good so I'm wishing you'd feel good, so you'll be feelin' good while I'm feelin' good about you feelin' good!" Pretty much nothing happened. As expected. His third friend, Tarmav says, "Here's an idea: quit bricking in your water."
The other two friends were somewhat taken aback by this line of reasoning. Mronohtro said, "Hey bro, I'm like, teh smart and dis is like elementary stuff [enigma, conundrum, mystery], and yeah, I's teh smarter den yoo." Stoor Peed then says, "You is like, teh discompassionate. You should be wishes him feelz da betterz."
Anyways, the homeboy with the whooping-poops marveled and said, "Wow! I never knew I could just not plop in my drinking water. I think I'll give this a try! Thanks, Tarmav. You're like super smart and totally not fat and I'm sure chicks everywhere totally dig you because you're awesome and smart and not fat at all!"
The moral of the story is, don't drink poopy water and you won't get dysentery (this is like Oregon Trail II wisdom). Likewise, don't check the oil on a diseased skank and you might not ruin your dip stick.
