I am making the claim people who take medicine prescribed by doctors are statistically more likely to get better.
Now, as per AC, since I do not propose a mechanism to explain this phenomenon my statement is 100% false and cannot possibly be correct.

There you go folks. Proof doctors are shams and homeopathy is the one true way to cure people. Go buy lots of bottles of 10000C cures from this store I have no relation to whatsoever and am not receiving money from.

Specifically keeping a 5 year old child on staff to spot these glaringly obvious fatal flaws in their evil schemes.

Good thing though. Virtuous hero AC here can exploit that flaw and save us from their evil oil-seawater separation plot.

There's one way to advance space flight and colonize the solar system. Moonshiners looking for a place to run their stills, and tax men following close behind.

Nothing spurs innovation like the quest for kinkier smut.
