The sister-in-law is deep into alternative medicine and just loves Mercola, a lying liar who tells lies. She posted some link to an alternative medicine thing about cancer and said, "Touchy subject, but amen. I want everyone to know there are alternatives, as crazy as it sounds." I had to try very very hard not to directly troll her, content, instead, with posting an article about geocentrism on my own wall and saying there are alternatives to heliocentrism.

Interview was okay. Feel like I lost momentum, but I made an impression, I think.

I am the 1 in 5 who believes Obama is a cactus.
