Now, I am not a scientician of any kind, but this seems kiiiiinda sketchy to me:

The BBC looked into the data sets and found - bizarrely - that details of 11 patients were repeatedly "copied and pasted,"

I definitely don't remember that being part of the scientific method from when I was in high school bio.

Pumpkin spice Ivermectin, after a double take that made me laugh.

Of course not, HS students are smart enough to slightly alter the numbers after copy and pasting them, to make them look less suspicious.

Damage is done and can not be undone.
Something the reporting media should be was certainly aware of.

Yeah, those f*cking window-lickers are going to believe it no matter what, now.

Scene: Operating room. Cloth screen just below patients chin to hide their view. Patient under local anesthetic.

Doctor: Oops
Patient: Oops?
Patient: What do you mean oops? I know what I mean when I say oops, whaddaya mean when you say oops?

Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine won't do shiat for you, they might even make you worse.

Well, if I mix horse paste and bleach, and drink it from a fluorescent bulb, will THAT work?

It probably brings them back to the days when they used to eat paste in school. When they were high school seniors at age 40.

Don't be ridiculous. You have to mix the horse paste and bleach, put it in the bulb, and stick the bulb up your ass.

They gave the study top billing.

They'll note the retraction on page 22 in small type, or in the middle of the night.

And people were buying it from animal supply stores to use on themselves. But I guess we're too politically correct nowadays to be able to say what things actually are.

Not often you see a near simulpost like that, especially using a not-obscure-but-not-super-famous-youtube-personality comment.

It's more than that. They could say something like "... best known as a horse dewormer" (to a North American audience) but it's misleading to imply that it's only an animal drug. It is also given to humans to treat various parasitic infections. Anyone in a clinical trial is getting a human preparation.

What I'm hearing is that you stopped reading because the article contradicted your preconceived notions rather than because they said anything incorrect.

Why are they doing human trials for something that doesn't work at all on Covid?

Yeah, but pointing it out makes him feel like an idiot who took livestock medication. Parasites and viruses are the same thing to these gullible sheep.

Too late. It's out there and they believe it. No amount of evidence to the contrary will convince them otherwise.

"Sometimes it gets used on humans... when they contract worms. It's only available in countries like India, which costs an arm and a leg to import for the likes of Joe Rogan. All the rubes who believed him obviously could only afford the horse version, but because he managed to get ahold of human pills that means I must be terribly offended in his steed. Stay tuned next week when I tell the libs that they're easily offended snowflakes."

High school copy and paste CSB. Had a teacher in high school that always wanted reports done. He almost never read them, but he wanted reports done. For the one I just basically copied and pasted right out of the Encarta entry. He wrote across the front page in big red letters "do your own work!!!". Somehow I got a C+.
 
2021-11-03 5:45:08 PM  
So ... it's one of the ones idiots on Fark always link to when they're babbling about how ivermectin is medicine, so people who call it "horse paste" are wrong and therefore Republicans aren't farking idiots for yapping about how it's a cure for COVID because nobody's that stupid? LOL

Clearly, you've never put off doing your homework until the night before it was due and quickly slapped together complete b.s. and hoped the teacher didn't catch on.
