My coworker just... Gah. He telld me thst the only medicine he uses is echanasia (sp?) because all other stuff (even aspirin) isn't "natural" and destroys your body by "poisoning" it. Hell, he's lactose intolerant and seems sceptical of lactase pills

Also, he says that if he ever has kids and they smoke, he'd make them smoke a ton ala King of the Hill to make them not addicted, and he's a know it all who refuses to accept that he could be wrong about something

    Just gave him the implied facepalm look


    He just told me he had drank enough pop to strip all the enamel off his teeth

    Either a blatant lie or else "poisonous" medicine is the least of his concerns
  • "I've come to the conclusion that this is a VERY STUPID IDEA."

    I'm reminded of that one argument that just because something is 'natural' doesn't make it good for you, since "you know what else is natural? Bears."

  • I told you a hundred times Seibah, I don't want you in my pool

    "You know what else is natural? Arsenic."


    But seriously, his kids are in danger.

    Luckily he's 17 so there is still hope that he snaps out of it

    Still though, he's not the only one that bad that I've met :<

    I worry that I do this sometimes, too be honest, but I try to have the self-awareness to not talk about things I don't know enough about or bow out once things get out of my league.

    Eh.  I can at least understand the reluctance to pump yourself full of pills, since I tend to get toxicity reactions to a lot of different kinds of medication (probably since the first six years of my life were basically one long series of infections and I was constantly on meds).

    My mother is really irritating with the herbal crap too though.  At least echinacea isn't really chemically significant enough to do much to you one way or the other.

    The smoking thing...doesn't inspire much confidence.

    I often find the sort of people who like to talk about things like how all of modern medicine is all wrong and stuff -- and among such people are, frequently, lots of conspiracy theorists, like birthers, truthers, and the like -- to be really full of hubris.

    ^^ I can understand it too (I'm much happier pilless, and my psychiatrist noted that I appear to be better off without them). Hence why I believe in researching it. Blindly hating medicine is justvas foolish as blindly worshipping it

    And yeah the cigs thing worries me too
  • That's funny.

    I actually do know everything.

    what is the ultimate question

    Wrong thread

  • The ultimate question is "Why?"

    To be a buttwizard is to know joy unceasing.

    ^^^Isn't that the D&D trick where you make a broken Escape Artist to fit into someone's ass and then Righteous Might to grow and explode it?

    ^ What, no shrink spells in D&D?

  • DC80 Escape Artist (or something) on a halfling can squeeze into a square inch.

    Oh my jeez how is that even possible that reads like the start to a Fatal quest involving plundering anal booty

  • Like I said. Joy unceasing.
