# Oooh yes!!
I've had homeopathists attempt to ram their pseudoscience mumbo-jumbo down my throat more than once.

This reminds me of a beat poem by Tim Minchin.


A perfect rant at all that bollocks. (Slightly NSFW due to a few naughty words)

They are unbelievably hard to get these days, and when you do get the chance, they are unbelievably expensive. I want one for my kitchen for bits and pieces, it would look lovely it would.

# Haha, nicely done
While most forms of alternative medicine (say... acupuncture) just require one big silly "leap of faith" to grant the benefit of the doubt, homeopathy is particular in requiring multiple ones.

I've got friends who have a medicine cabinet full of these dried frog pills. One day I am going to swap all the identical white pills between bottles - I bet they don;t notice.

# Homeopathy
An alternative for people who don't listen to their GP say

"Get some rest and drink plenty of water"

And want to tell their friends that they needed to seek alternative treatment

# Ha!
I'd love to ask a homeopath why, if the water 'remembers' substances that have been in it, I'm not effectively just drinking loads of piss, shit, bacteria, poison, etc. whenever I have a glass of water? Surely I'm lucky to be alive with the 'memories' of all those harmful things I'm exposed to every time I turn on the tap?

# because
it cures the symptoms that all those bad things produce. or something.

For me, the real problem is that Samuel Hahnemann just decided that it would work. And it was started at a time when alot of real medicine involved things like bloodletting and taking strychnine and shit, so actually doing nothing (or taking homeopathy) probably produced more positive results.

# HaHa
Love it! I sat in on the Government Select Committee hearing on Homeopathic medicine, it was great seeing them tear homeopathy to shreds in front of the viewing gallery full of sugar pill healers. I actually had to leave at one point because the sight of them all getting so het up was just too funny.

Not that I disagree, but how often does one get an opening like this?
