I Think You’ll Find It’s a Bit More Complicated Than That

September 7, 2009

I’ve long been a fan of Ben Goldacre’s column Bad Science in The Guardian and his blog. It won’t surprise you to know that his use of rational thought and scientific evidence to dispel deliberate quackery and ill-thought out mumbo jumbo – take the MMR nonsense or homoeopathy – is rather popular in these quarters.

Which brings me on to… any ideas for a similar Saving Darfur shop? Slogans for G-strings in particular would be appreciated.
