...and so homeopathy is a cure-all

Actually, don't waste your time. Rubber troll.

It’s really funny then that whenever you ask a homoeopath (or one of their acolytes) to prove that there’s more than placebo to homoeopathy, they can only cite studies done by their kith and kin. Studies done by independent authorities find a curious effect: the more tightly controlled a trial is, the less statistical significance is found for homoeopathy above placebo.

All of which is hardly as funny as the hilariously ham-fisted “explanations” homoeopaths (and their acolytes) fabricate for the physics/chemistry that supposedly makes homoeopathy work — which “explanations” haven’t changed substantially in almost two centuries. Saying it’s so doesn’t make it so. Sooner or later the lack of plausible evidence and mechanism will make people wonder.

No, the only reason homoeopathy “works” is because there are so many gullible suckers out there. And so many unsinkable pushers of this unscientific nonsense, as Lurkie hints. ;)

Oooooohhhhh! Avogadro equals Mefiante to the power 23. Don't worry, Nancy. Just divide and dilute. Much more powerful. ;/)

Oh dear. I might be feeding a troll...

Very often mental troubles come first followed by physical complaints.
This is absolutely true, and I can vouch for it. I was once so distraught by having too much on my mind, that I kept botching the simplest of tasks. Even parking a car became a challenge. One unfortunate day I reversed into a boundary wall, loosening a sizeable chunk of masonary. While still inspecting the damage, a plaster caked brick unexpectedly pulled itself out and landed on my Crocks-cladded foot. I limped around in pain for almost a week: a living example of mental fatigue culmanating in physical pain. Don't let them tell you otherwise.

Put the Croc in water. A very minute amount of it will dissolve in the water. So little that you need not dilute the solution any more to have a ready-made cure for foot pain.
