    This was dangerously close to the USN science(ish) thing but I thought the EOF would be better.

    Delightfully amusing, and not only because apparently homoeopathic items also come in suppository form.

    Kind of sucks that it was penicillin (diluted solutions are the last thing you want out there, also, though no reported cases here, more than a few people are rather allergic to that family of chemicals) but hey.
