Kissing sumone while having cuts on your lips possibilty of HIV if the other person was infected persay?

Kissing sumone while having cuts on your lips possibilty of HIV if the other person was infected persay?

HIV: This is incredibly improbable. If your lips were cut and bleeding and you kissed someone who was HIV+ and also bleeding it would be conceivable to acquire HIV in this manner, but still unlikely.
