On the 30th January, skeptics in Britain are planning a mass homeopathic overdose to raise awareness about the reality of homeopathy and to protest against certain stores that continue to stock homeopathic remedies.

I saw her frequent tweets on the 1023 website and followed the link to her twitter page; she's all over the place I honestly don't know where she finds the time for her "patients" as well.  Evil

My theory is Cpt. Klingon did it all wrong. He should've powdered the remedy and taken only a single grain.... Now at that potency it should surely kill you instantly.

Whats a good "remedy" to overdose on?
Something for a non-specific or ill-defined condition that exhibits a broad range of fairly common symptoms, for example stress or headaches or general anxiety.  Ideally, the solvent should be water, unless you’re okay with a sugar-spike or have a special liking for the flavour and effects of surgical alcohol… Wink



I see Nancy Malik is having her annoying say there as well.
Well, yes, that’s not entirely unexpected.  It’s exactly as we sceptics have been saying all along: succussion and dilution do not an effective remedy make.  That seems now to apply as much to homoeopaths themselves as to their preparations.



…I honestly don't know where she finds the time for her "patients" as well.  Evil
And the answer is … Wait for it … Yes, it’s HTS, or Homoeopathic Time-Slices!  (Note: this also explains the amount of thought that goes into “Dr” Nancy Malik’s inane postings.)

"Dr." Nancy Malik is a busy little bee on the 10:23 twitter page, claimimg that the news anchors are being paid by big pharma...LOL!!  Grin

The sympathy events in Sydney and in Christchurch have already happened, no - one suffered any ill effects, not that we are surprised.

No deaths or emergency room visits due to homeopathic overdoses reported.

You can watch a news report about the New Zealand homeopathic overdose here.

Note in the comment section on the 3News website below the report - our friend Dr. Nancy Malik. Damn, that woman is everywhere.

I posted a reply that is probably not going to make it through moderation:

Hi Nancy! You're still peddling your homeopathic snake oil, I see. Missing you. Luvvies & huggles.

Maybe that's why Nancybabe's such a subcontinental pain: not enough "Luvvies & huggles" - only homeopathic shots...
