    So go ahead and create a free editorial house, what is stopping you? They are not government agencies, you don't need special permission to create one, so just go ahead and create "Nature" competitor.

    Haven't you thought that if everything is so simple, then why why isn't anyone doing this for free? Why all those scientists keep sending their papers to those publishers that end up hiding them behind paywall?

    Have you thought for a second about that? That there is some incentive that is more than just silly scientists sending their hard worked papers to greedy publishers because of ... what?

    And did you know that you only need to pay for access if you want to read it from publisher? Did you know you could just contact author and ask him to share the research with you and author can send it to you that without publisher's permission and for free (provided he wants to give his research to you for free of course)?

    The problem is the same as internet newspaper. You don't need to pay to know the news, but if you want to read certain newspaper it will bill you money. News itself is free. The work newspaper does is not. If you are not happy with some newspaper, maybe just don't buy it?

    Because homeopathy drugs were sold as "cure everything". People were taking them thinking they can treat serious diseases, which they can't, so people were losing time and money when conventional medicine could actually provenly cure them.

    Placebo-effect can only take you so far. It can help with everything that is perceptional: pain, depression, maybe minor inflammation etc. But it won't help to treat diseases that root in physical conditions like bacteria, tumors etc. etc.

    However shammy people were making placebo for everything. Common cold, liver disease, cancer, you name it. This is highly detrimental for people and society health.

    It is especially so for scammers usually bundle in some horse shit with your "medicine". Like conspirology theories (government does want you to know this ancient medicine secret...) or even religious gibberish.

    So, that's why. There is a huge difference in consequences between believing in nonsense and using irrational mind effect.

    Is this a joke? She was probably cutting thousands of slices of deli per day. I guess more than 3 slices are just get thrown out because they fall on the floor. These are natural losses of meat that including all can be 10-20%. Eating "3 to 5 slices" does not make any difference. This should not be a criminal case at all!

    What next? Perfume seller had perfume leftovers on her fingertips that she used on her neck. Sales manager estimated that over course of 20 years that adds to a gallon of Chanel #5 and costs $200 000?!

    It's pretty funny that people think that eliminating Bible would make the world somehow a better place. Religious missionary was one of reasons of western civilization spread. Removing religion would prevent that. Does it mean joy and friendship would spread instead? Hell no of course. Just another religion and another civilization would take its place.

    It does not mean we need to retain religion now, but thinking that world without christianity would somehow be better that world with it is a funny idea. It would not, because another global religion would take its place.

    I wonder why my elaborate comment has 3 upvotes, and your one word comment has 4 upvotes.

    Same question. No healthy ranges were given. People upvote this without even reading?

    "universal and free health insurance" = stupidest idea ever. They will end up like Venezuela.

    Universal is good, payed by taxes or overall insurance is good.

    But "free" always ends up being bad. Always. Just another latin communism quirk.
