Here's why I love the way Rebecca Watson writes:
Then one day I read an actual description of what homeopathy is. Imagine a neighbor youâ€™ve known for a few years. Heâ€™s quiet and always says hello when you see him in the yard. Then one day the cops knock on your door and start asking you questions: have you ever seen him in possession of large amounts of hamsters? Do you hear strange â€œsqueakingâ€ sounds coming from his basement at night? Has he ever asked to borrow your wood chipper? You are shocked to discover that your quiet neighbor, who you never really gave a second thought, is bat-sh** insane. Your neighbor is homeopathy.
See? I would have said something pithy like, "Homeopathy is crap". I guess I don't have that Skepchick touch to my writing skills.
