But they grow our food! We can't have them...

... Oh into the soil! Okay, that makes more sense.

I had such high hopes the MAGA geniuses would latch on to this as the next miracle cure, then I read the article. A MAGA can't possibly be THIS stupid.

Can they?

I could see the right combination of Facebook shares - with the text superimposed on American flags and minions, of course - and maybe one or two planted google references successfully drawing a line between the legitimate, albeit disgusting, science of stool transplants helping cure C-diff, and fabricated science about stool transplants helping cure covid. Maybe you have to inhale it so it gets into your lungs where the virus is. Worth a try, right?

It would have more effect on the people who were initially antivax than on the people who just want to stiggit, but there's so much overlap these days...

Cool article, though. I love the idea of less runoff in lakes and rivers and less shust* in the air.

Tell them 4000mg just to be safe. Tell them they'll feel like crap for about two days, then, like a miracle, they'll feel better.

The sepsis will kill them faster then the antibiotics can take hold.

Sounds like the device (some) cable companies use to install cable to houses.

A long time ago I flew with a pilot from Montana. First time I ever heard of a manure spreader referred to as The Turd Hearse.

Insurance companies should treat Ivermectin deaths as suicide.

Ah, the generic ditch witch catch all thingy! I always thought those were neat. Sure beat digging a tench by hand. The only downside was the lack of manuvering.

Not a big issue in a farm field. I have to wonder if you need to mature the manure more. Most manure spreading works because the yellow stuff that inevitably gets into the poo gets washed away. All the nitrates in urine tend to be bad for plants. Which is why there is so much farking algea in the rivers. Probably better for chemical fertilizing in the long run.

Do you have statistics? How many people have actually died from OD?

I really am curious as the only sources I have found haven't worked in the system since before Ivermectin was a thing....
