Someone talks about the flu and encourages people to take echinacea to create more white blood cells.

I mention the cytokine storm and link to the wikipedia entry on it so people can read about it.

This person responds and says, in a nutshell, "You mentioned wikipedia, therefore everything you said is a lie because wikipedia is full of lies."

I am tired of people escalating a casual disagreement in this manner and attacking me for being better informed then them. Yes, I have been to wikipedia; and yes, I think it has good, concise information if you just want the gist of a topic. Read the cites if you disagree with it or do further research.

But seriously, to anyone who thinks "You read it on wikipedia" is a checkmate: Fuck you.

Also, klingon women have penises.

Thankfully I only deal with Harvard students and the like, so Wikipedia is a checkmate in the other direction, in that if it is said on Wikipedia, it is true and no one can disagree.

Are these people your age or older people who don't quite know how to use computers and watch local news?

The first time was actually my girlfriend, the second time was someone who was older and might only watch the local news. I would assume she was reasonably computer savvy, but she is apparently seriously protective of her healer status.

I'm not sure what those last few words mean, and does that mean your current girlfriend (as in today) or your then-girlfriend (as in on that day but not this day)?

We need that timeline, and we need it updated.

I mean my current girlfriend who is older than me, but only by a couple years.

This woman grows and sells herbs for herbal remedies. She was talking about using herbs to increase your immune system in a discussion about the swine flu. I just like saying "cytokine storm". I imagine when I brought it up she felt threatened because I was disagreeing with her and she is the ultradruid master healer or some bullshit.

I'll get to work on a timeline.

Does she know anything about biology? Just because something is on wikipedia doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Also, cytokine storms are awesome. And suck for those of us with very healthy immune systems.

I don't know, but the whole conversation is getting confusing now. I hate the internet.
