    So which portion of the 8 years is for the quackery that is homeopathy.

    8 years is not enough.  UGH.

    Maybe 8 years having his own shocking probe used on him every 10 seconds would be enough.

    I’m pleased to see your support of late of evidence-based medicine Xeni. I hope all is well with your battle – there are a lot of Boingers who are thinking of you.

    “phony homeopathic treatment”

    Also known as “homeopathic treatment”.

    When I lived in Atlanta, a man was arrested for going door-to-door, selling life insurance at incredible deals, but requiring men to submit to a ‘routine’ prostate exam in their living rooms. Dozens had fallen for it and kept silent until one victim finally spilled the beans.

  8. “phony homeopathic treatment” what a cute pleonasm. Here in Brazil a lot of people buy a very (artificially) expensive crap called Sun Mushroom, another magical cure for cancer that the big farma companies bla bla bla. The worst part: I watched a neighboor´s aunt die, full of debts, because she didn´t believed in medicine, and those mushrooms would cure her anyway. 

    Stupidity, on the long term, kills.

  9. They didn’t feel something was odd when the dude shoved things in orifices ?

    Did you stick this above the “10 Delightful Practical Jokes” article for max boffo? Or is this just another case of the universe at large dicking with our heads?

    Wow. How vital to your survival does something need to be for it to get critical thought?

    I mean, mistaking water and novelty dildos for cancer treatment is pretty moronic.

      Targeted ultrasound is the latest breakthrough for prostate cancer. How do you think they target it?

    He told one woman she could be cured of cancer if a man sucked her breasts for half an hour each day.

    Checked URL for The Onion… very disappointed.
