Human Papillomavirus: can only cause warts in humans. Dogs have their own variant called CPV (canine papillomavirus).

If you squish a mosquito that just bit an aids person, can the mosquito blood get into your skin and infect you?
Next to Impossible: This is an interesting question and seems plausible. Fortunately, this is really next to impossible since even if the mosquito had enough HIV blood inside it, squishing it would not give the blood a way to enter into your bloodstream. Hiv is a very fragile virus and is not as easily transmitted as many often believe or suspect. ...Read more

Contacts, make-up: They may survive longer on moist surfaces. And other irritants (dust, airborne chemical contaminants, etc) also may settle on the lenses.

Rabies from aerosols: Only under exceptionally rare cases might rabies be transmitted through the air --the environment would be a bat cave with millions of bats flying around your head. You would not get it from being near a rabid animal.
