    You sound like a comment made at the end of an edition of the ‘The Infinitely Monkey Cage’, with Brain Cox and Robin Ince. Someone said that homoeopaths don’t have real brains, they have skulls full of water with only memories of brains.
    I still use them, though. The only thing the doctor can give me for my skin condition is steroids and they can only help me in the place I am in, but not cure me. In short, they do fuck all.
