Dr. Mehmet Oz is being sued by a Burlington County who claims an insomnia cure promoted on "The Dr. Oz Show" left third-degree burns on his feet.

Well, which county was it!?

No, that's his name.  He's a descendant of Brisco County, Jr.

Good Lord.  We have a few heat socks in our house, and they get toasty at about the 2 minute mark.  The guy had to have known it was too hot, even if he used tongs.

I don't see any mention of diabetes in the article but if it's true, then he's lost all sensation in them (which explains how he gets third-degree burns without feeling it) and he won't be using those feet much longer, anyways.

Hack Patooey: We have a bunch of those "Toss em in the microwave for two minutes" herb/rice/whatever bag things. They ROCK for migraines.


They do. I keep one in my office and one in the house, because I get them frequently. I have it on my back today because I did something to make it hurt (probably slept funny.)

In order for him to actually burn himself, he'd had to have put a stinking, burnt sock on one foot, realize how freaking hot it was, and put on a second one. If you microwave these things longer than about 2 minutes, or more than a few times in a day, they start to smell burnt. The signs that it has not been used properly are pretty blatant.  I can't help but call some shenanigans here.

Hey y'all, remember when they used to call badmouthing his predecessor "Bush Derangement Syndrome"?

Well, at least we knew when Bush was the topic under discussion, not responding like a Pavlovian Pomeranian.

Can he also not feel his hands? Because unless he magically slipped his feet into them while they were still in the microwave, he must have picked them up with his hands, which would have been a clue as to the intense heat of said socks.

Dr. Oz seriously need a big hot cup of STFU. He's nothing but a snake oil peddler at this point; pure quack. Its nothing but rain forest super supplements and Ancient Chinese Secrets and miracle pills. This dude even pimps reflexology and reiki and other kinds of woo.

he took a look at his paycheck and a look at his medical ethics, then got a gun and shot his ethics in the face.

I didn't see it quite like that. I think that, while he was busy becoming a "celebrity", his paycheck started hanging out with his ethics. A word here, a bit of generosity there, and his ethics was seduced. Once the hook was set, his paycheck got his ethics tipsy at a bar, slipped him a roofie, and proceeded to cornhole him, over & over again, all the while explaining that his paycheck was in charge and that his ethics was now his paycheck's biatch even as he pummeled him. With a deep sense of shame, knowing that there was no way to expurgate this stain, his ethics shot himself in the face - and Oz didn't even notice, what with his paycheck running the show and all.

He's gonna be sad when he opens up that rented room in his subconscious and finds out the corpse has reached that stage where it's half goo and when you lift it up the skin stays attached to the carpet and the kidneys dangle out and the head falls off. Can't get those kinds of stains out, y'see.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Good Lord.  We have a few heat socks in our house, and they get toasty at about the 2 minute mark.  The guy had to have known it was too hot, even if he used tongs.


As sort of a weird coincidence I'm reading Pascal Khoo Thwe's  book "From the Land of the Green Ghosts" about his life as a rebel in Burma in the 1980s.  In one chapter, he mentions cooking rice in a sock while hiding from military patrols.  Something about not having cooking pots because they barely escaped with their lives when the last camp was bombed.

I'm not clever enough to make a witty joke comparing the two situations, but it strikes me somehow as being funny and pathetic at the same time.

This wouldn't even work as a sleep aid. Your feet need to be cool to fall asleep. If they are too hot your brain thinks you're doing something energetic like harlem shuffle and won't settle down into sleep mode.

Plus, Dr Oz is a whore.

They're just jealous because he's raking in the millions and they're not. And they have those pesky ethics things that get in the way.

I go to Weight Watchers and have to put up with a lot of love for this quack. This food or that will melt the pounds off! It must be true because Dr. Oz the Great and Powerful said so.
