Goddamnitsomuch, not only can we not win, we can't even play the game.

My theory was that nanosilver was like colloidal silver but would turn people tiny and blue.  In other word have an even more intense Smurfesque properties.

That is EXACTLY what the mainstream media would like you to believe. Now excuse me while I return to my bomb shelter before the NSA tracks this message.

It's almost like there was actual physical proof that evolution is real and not just a theory.

Well, what's the alternative, worthless fiat antibiotics? Ask Zimbabwe or Weimar Germany how that worked out for them!

Sure we can.  We just have to use the cards we showed up with.

Damn it! I just had my penis coated in nanosilver as birth control.

One big truth from Aristotle:

Nature abhors a vacuum.

Kill something, and another something will take its place. We're hastening out own demise with narrowly targeted microbicides.

We can't always have a full house though. We just need to have the right hand be dealt and then bet the house.  Or bluff the bacteria by using sunglasses and an enormous rack.

I ... might have let that analogy get away from me.

Goddamnit, this is one of the MANY reasons Iw as so farking pissed at so many companies doing shiat like "Underwear: NOW WITH NANOSILVER"

NO. BAD COMPANY, BAD. STOP ABUSING TECH FROM MY FIELD BEFORE WE MAP OUT ASSOCIAT HEALTH RISKS. *THWACKS WITH STICK* BAD COMPANIES. NO BISCUIT.

I see where you're going. Bacteria can't survive in a vacuum. That would also explain why married women live longer too, because of their inherent ability to suck the air out of a room.

There's bacteria living in 9,000 feet of superheated, 450 atmospheric pressured water at the bottom of the ocean.  Bacteria living under 2 miles of bedrock.

And we're surprised why?

Bacteria were here long before us, and will be here long after us.  Hell, they make up quite a bit of us!

Maybe we should regulate the conformists who buy anti-bacterial products?

How does it perform on reverse vampires?

Medical grade nano silver? Good stuff, good stuff.

Actually some bacteria, especially spore producing ones, can survive in space.  Many bacteria are killed by vacuum, but not all.

And now, Glenn Beck with a message on investing in nanosilver, a hedge against inflation and a handy germ killer!

Don't believe the lame-stream media when they tell you nanosilver is a bad investment. They're funded by the same pharmaceutical companies out to take your gold!  Don't trust them! Nanosilver is the only sure way to prepare for the upcoming economic and biological collapse!

Hang on a second Mr. Professor, the nano silver killed E.coli, and another bacteria spread to take its place.  Either you need a remedial lesson on survival of the fittest, or you need to RTFA.

Pfft! Nanosilver only works against vampires and werewolves. So does silver nitrate, but nanosilver is nastier, quicker, and makes them dissolve. Totally legit.

If you don't believe me, ask James Asher.

Well that's just microevolution. Call me back when you see E. coli "evolve" wings and fly away from nanosilver.

So no cheap water filter, eh?
Well, it was a nice thought for a day...

My very thought. Of course, when I read "hey, we're using nanosilver", I was already skeptical.

I installed stained glass with window partitions made of gold and paint made with gold particles in my house, and I haven't had a cold in over 3 weeks. apparently the sunlight activates the gold and nanoparticles drift into the atmosphere, killing pathogens, aersolized or not. Or so the sales rep explained.
