Watch me Overdose!

****Update!!! I deleted the video of me overdosing on the Calms Forte because people on YouTube were not getting the point and were leaving a lot of idiotic comments because they didn't even bother watching the video and assuming that I was ODing on actual medication. The average view duration was about two minutes anyways so good riddance. But I did make an updated video with a visual demonstration showing the process of making a homeopathic dilution. Click here to watch and hopefully you have more than the average person's two minute attention span.


Hidey ho blog peeps. Today you get to watch me swallow an entire bottle of pills. But don't worry, if you are reading this, then I am very much alive and well. This will be my first foray into the world of video and the evil land that is YouTube comments. It's pretty rough. So please. Be gentle.

Of course, I'm not going to be gobbling down just any ol' bottle of medicine. I've purchased a bottle of homeopathic medicine. Calms Forté to be exact. This is a sleep aid so I am assuming that after taking the entire bottle, I should be really sleepy. I am, however, typing these words about five hours after my "overdose" and have yet to experience even so much as a yawn. But according to the website, I should not find this unusual. The curious part about this "sleep aid" is that they claim on their FAQ page that "Hyland’s Calms Forté is not a sedative."

NOT A SEDATIVE? WTF?

So a few things wrong here:

1. The ingredients in Calms Forté are all used for purposes such as helping people with insomnia, anxiety, nervousness, etc. This seems backwards since it goes entirely against the "like cures like" philosophy of homeopathy.

2. So if the above IS backwards then the ingredients that they have used should actually be used as a "wake aid". Sort of like those 5hr energy drinks.

3. Yet they sell this product marketed as a sleep aid when they are not only using the wrong ingredients for such yet actually come right out and say it's not a sedative!

At any rate, I doubt this little stunt of mine will matter but it's still a fun way to make a small point. The point being that homeopathy has absolutely nothing in it. So much nothing in fact that taking an entire bottle does nothing in return. I don't know about you but I would want the medicine I'm taking to have actual medicine in it so that it can do the thing it's actually supposed to do.

I think you need to step it up, and do what Crispian Jiago did -- drink a homeopathic preparation of his own pee. :-)

Your Sins are Killing Your Children

"Do you need a healing?" is what the highway sign I passed asked me. Below that was the name Thurman Scrivner and the dates that he would be in town. When I got home I looked up Mr. Scrivner and discovered that he was your run of the mill faith healer. His The Living Savior Ministries website is full of testimonials from those he has "healed". There is a man who had both his legs crushed and a young girl with a severe peanut allergy. But the big one is his granddaughter Katlynn whom I will tell you about later. If you have a lifetime of free time to waste, you could also listen to his over 400 sermons either through the website or by having free DVDs mailed to you. Now I've never been to a healing and so even though I wasn't really in need of one, I thought I would go check it out and see what actually happens at these things. Naturally, I pictured the afflicted people on the stage in a state of rapture having their demons cast out and throwing away their c…

All About Parasites

There are plenty of examples in the world that one could use as mighty fine reasons why intelligent design is a load of bunk. Your appendix, mosquitoes, Honey Boo Boo. Then there are parasites. I can't think of a good reason to create these paragons of ickiness except to give us just one more reason to look up gross things on the Internet to say ew about and make our skin crawl. There are some great ones in the animal kingdom that are just too bat shit crazy for words.

An unsuspecting grasshopper could drink some bad water and get himself infected with a horsehair worm which will begin to busily grow inside him (up to a foot long!) until the worm decides he wants out. But he needs to live in water and since grasshoppers aren't fond of swimming the worm simply takes control of the grasshopper's brain, marches him to the nearest body of water, compels him to commit a horrible watery suicide and then casually slithers out of his ass.
