Dwight's right. When I first read that post back in '94, it
completely sucked me in. I had been to his house and
seen his tanks (they are quite impressive), and his experiment
seemed so real at the time. I actually read the conclusion,
paused, and tried to rationalize heavy metal aggregation in
tissue that may cause this to happen!
The word, "fiendish" is right on.
Since I've been such a sucker in the past, I still haven't figured
out after all these years if that post about exhaling into a garbage
bag with an air pump blowing CO2 into the tank was a joke or
not. Well, was it? I actually set that up to figure it out, but my
results were inconclusive.

P.S.-- BTW, I hold the title of the only person on planet Earth
that has stiffed George and Karla out of $20 for their book (it
was $15 at that time.) What's more, is that I stiffed them for
a couple years before I actually apologized and paid back the
money with interest and penalties in 1997 or so.... sorry
about that, George.
