Don’t take Ivermectin!
In this episode we first have a few events to plug: The launching of the book Fake! in Budapest, Congreso Esceptico in Spain, Skeptics in the Pub Online about 9/11 and the upcoming Ig Nobel ceremony. In This Week we discuss Mary Shelley who was born this week in 1797 and then we skip the pope and instead plunge into the news:
- Continued demonstrations against the vaccine passports
- Researchers in UK: We probably shouldn’t use the word ‘Infodemic’
- Do not take Ivermectin!
- What exactly did Martin Luther say about life in times of plague?
- Snopes is asking for help
The Swedish authorities get this week Really Wrong for allowing Steiner schools to ruin the lives of thousands of children.

0:50:38 QUOTE AND FAREWELL
“Each individual fact, taken by itself, can indeed arouse our curiosity or our astonishment, or be useful to us in its practical applications. But intellectual satisfaction we obtain only from a connection of the whole, just from its conformity with law.”
/ Hermann von Helmholtz (31 August 1821 – 8 September 1894), German physicist and physician /
