    Doesn't it sometimes strike you as strange that, in a well educated world population, all the odd bits of folk wisdom suddenly look respectable again? If you choose any "alternative medicine" topic and really make a study of it, it starts to read like the pronouncements of the snake-oil merchants of our childhood. I guess you can't educate people out of gullibility.

    Has the discomfort level of your three week old cold diminished yet?

    Went around the same time as it would if I'd done nothing, or everything. Colds last only 2 or 3 weeks if you treat them with every possible method, but if you ignore them altogether and just get on with your life they can drag on for 14 or even 21 days ...
