This Week’s Quote: ”I’m sorry if you’re into homeopathy–it’s water! How often does it need to be said? It’s just water…’Herbal medicine’s been around for thousands of years.’ Indeed it has, and then we tested it all, and the stuff that worked became ‘medicine,’ and the rest of it is just a nice bowl of soup and some potpourri. So knock yourselves out!” –Dara Ó Briain
