NutWrench: 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.


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.

I'm surprised that Dr. Oz isn't sued more often for the bunk-ass science he perpetuates.

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.

walkerhound: Good.  Sue that snake oil salesman into oblivion.


While this would be a service to mankind, it'll never happen because he enjoys the patronage of the dark

prjindigo: Doc Oz isn't a board certified doctor.


He's actually a pretty well renowned thoracic/cardiac surgeon (can't remember which).  The New Yorker had a good article about him; most of his colleagues are perplexed about how he can be a great surgeon, but a shill 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.

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.

FormlessOne: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.

Now I have to go to the ER to get this bit of sandwich removed from my nasopharynx.
