Oh hey look[edit]

One Recent changes ruining later, and its still shit for the same reasons it was before! --MikallakiM 12:32, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Don't be an asshole. If it bothers you that much, use enhanced recent changes--"Shut up, Brx." 14:20, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
then i would have to use enhanced Recent changes; which presents much more annoying problems --MikallakiM 14:58, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Another angry boor. No doubt a disappointment to his parents, if they cared. And unable to see the wood for the trees. Now go and play elsewhere, you obnoxious little cunt. -Albannach (talk) 16:06, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

There isn't any need for that unless you are actively wanting people to get annoyed with you. Scarlet A.pngmoral 16:45, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Just doing unto others as they do unto me.--Albannach (talk) 16:57, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
"i'm so much better than you that im going to the same level" is no different than "i'm as bad as i think you are"--MikallakiM 17:22, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Get back what you give out. Now stop twatting.-Albannach (talk) 22:12, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Socrates killed by a hemlock herbal remedy? Really? Are you sure about that?--Křěĵtalk 16:36, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Herbal infusion... erm, joke. But he was executed by hemlock for corrupting the youth, that's true.-Albannach (talk) 16:57, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
But it's listed under "herbal medicine".--Кřěĵt̪åɬк 02:35, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
It's not alternative medicine if it's intended as a poison. Also, some of this stuff is more likely to be idiocy than quackery, like the statesman trying to relieve a blockage using whalebone.--"Shut up, Brx." 17:00, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Poe's law again. Whale bone as acupuncture? I'll include that for novelty value. I squirm just thinking about it.-Albannach (talk) 22:12, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
He wasn't using it for acupuncture. He was using it because he had a blockage in his urethra, likely caused by prostate cancer [1]. The whale bone was just an attempt to clear things up. Stupid, to be sure, but not alternative medicine.--"Shut up, Brx." 01:08, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Acupuncture... another bad joke. Seriously, does every joke/satire on this website have to be flagged up? comes under folk medicine perhaps. In the meantime, is there anyone else worth adding to this list?? Albannach (talk)
Well, frankly, this list isn't really funny.--Кřěĵt̪åɬк 02:35, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
^This. What is it even satirising? ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 07:21, 9 May 2013 (UTC)


Maybe this would be more useful? After all, there's already What's The Harm, so I don't think this list would really bring anything new.--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 16:34, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
