Golden Girls episode from the late 1980’s we see Rose Nylan getting what was called then an “AIDS test” (S5 E19 from year 1990).

At that time the public was led to believe that there was one new disease and that there was a reliable test.

I learned in 1987 that it was not a disease, but a syndrome, that the test was unreliable, only finding antibodies none specific, and it was merely a hysterically adopted new description for 29 old diseases.

Car sales people use this same tactic all the time, they have a lemon to sell you, or 29 of them, and they create a new description, saying it’s All Acquired Reliable Transportation (AART).
