Orac's Friday Dose of Woo for the week has left me so jaw-droppingly stupefied that I can say absolutely nothing that will top his post.
Someone claims to have discovered the Philospher's Stone.
Not only that, but it will give you god-like powers. In fact, the only ability you don't get, as far as I can discern, is the ability to turn undead, which would arguably be useless unless somebody discovers a way to create zombies over the weekend. Maybe Big Pharma will unleash the T-virus and we'll all be totally screwed. Who knows.
That makes me wonder. Would "zombies" created by the T-virus actually be affected by turn undead? After all, they're technically living, just infected with a pathogen that alters their physiology, kind of like the zombies in 28 Days Later. This is going to be on my mind for the rest of the day.
