A thousand dollars! :o

Wow, I might need to start thinking about a web-based theraputic touch website...

[edit]
To be fair, though, how much different is selling electrons from selling tap water?

Is it ethical to start a company that sells homeopic remedies with a twist. After the customer uses the entire bottle or all of the pills or whatever you find a way to inform the client that you simply filled the bottle from your backyard hose or you bought a hoard of sugar pills and that's what was given to them. The point is obviously to show them that their symptom relief was due to nothing. Is there any law that could be prosecuted against you for claiming your product was homeopic when it wasn't? Now that would give all skeptics out there a laugh and a half.

Maybe you guys are interested in the fact that in Germany the Homeopathy idiocy reached a whole new level.
The Charité in Berlin created the first professorship in homeopathy.
As a German medical student i am of course very ashamed. The Charité is actually one of the best medical schools in Germany which makes this even more depressing.

I'm sure there's some homeopathic remedy to help you get over your depression.   :D
