via joxn: The Twelve STDs of Christmas. Flash. Probably NSFW. The banner at the bottom says, "DON'T PLAY THE SEX LOTTERY. USE A CONDOM." Note that some of the STD's mentioned, though, won't be stopped by a condom. These include pubic lice/crabs and scabies. Also, an 'infection that is urinary' is unlikely to be a sexually transmitted disease.

And why did they mention pediculosis pubis (crabs) twice, while leaving out other exciting, colorful, and disgusting sexually transmitted diseases like chanceroid [NSFW] and lymphogranuloma venereum [NSFW]?

Did I tell you I saw a patient the other night with crabs up to his nipples? Yep, in his chest hair. That's really unusual. I didn't tell you, did I?

Even less welcome news than crabs in the chest hair: in Cameroon patients have been showing up with typical AIDS symptoms but negative tests for HIV and SIV (simian immunodeficiency virus, close relative of HIV). I.e., there's yet another new, HIV-like virus starting up. This is bad.

meaning: treasure

国宝 == kokuhou == (noun) national treasure
重宝 == chouhou == (adjective that takes な, noun that takes suru to act as a verb) priceless treasure, convenience, usefulness

Top radical is 'roof/house', bottom radical is 'jewel' (国). This character originally depicted a treasure house containing valuables. Now it means 'valuables' in general. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Treasure house contains jewels.'
