Celestial Drops

Quote:

Four years ago, as the state labored to eradicate citrus canker by destroying trees, officials rejected other disease-fighting techniques, saying unproven methods would waste precious time and resources.

But for more than six months, the state, at the behest of then-Secretary of State Katherine Harris, did pursue one alternative method -- a very alternative method.

Researchers worked with a rabbi and a cardiologist to test "Celestial Drops," promoted as a canker inhibitor because of its "improved fractal design," "infinite levels of order" and "high energy and low entropy."

But the cure proved useless against canker. That's because it was water -- possibly, mystically blessed water.

Just another example of politics and business mixing causing me, the lowly taxpayer, to get fucked in the ass.

The problem is, too many politicians know dick all about science, and in the name of fairness listen equally to real scientists and "alternative science".

The problem is the state spending my money where only private industry should be involved.
