Today's comic in Jon's Dilbert page-a-day calendar has Dogbert saying "Hello, this is Dogbert's All-Natural and Holistic Tech Support. . .Try stuffing tree bark in the CD drive and meditating. . . No, of course it won't damage anything, it's all natural!"
As anyone who knows us knows, we're quite in favor of non-medicinal ways of life, but of course people can go too far. Jon still calls vitamins and especially herbs, "medicines."

It just reminded me of the thing people say "God made dirt, so dirt don't hurt" I finally got to respond to that the other day - "Well, God made lions, too."

Just because it's natural doesn't mean it's good! Anyway, just a little thought of the day.

Arsenic is natural, as is uranium, for that matter. In our legitmate fight against artificial this and unnatural that, we tend to forget that for eons people have been getting sick and dying from "natural" causes.

The next comic is:
What can I do to avoid computer viruses?
Give your power cord a spinal adjustment once a week to prevent disease.
I was skeptical until he said there's anecdotal evidence that it works.

Since in 30 years I've seen computing go from 50% voodoo to 90%, I wouldn't be surprised if it does work.
