Snake Oil

It's getting so hard to find decent snake oil these days.

And don't get me started on dehydrated water. Not one local retailer. Not one.

I hear you about the snake oil. Gary Jules seems to have cornered the market.

But you have to have some concern for public safety. That other stuff is dangerous.

Nah, that dangerous stuff is pure dihydrogen oxide. If you dilute it enough -- with lead, mercury, calcium, fluoride, etc. -- it's safe enough.

Actually, it just occurred to me where they sell legitimate dehydrated water -- homebrew shops. If you have "soft" water (tap water without enough minerals in it) you can buy a package of chemicals that will sufficiently "harden" your water enough to make a decent beer.
