Science is cool

In case you haven't heard about the recent Daniel Hauser case, here's a link from yesterday:

In summary, a judge has ruled that the family of a 13-year-old boy cannot refuse to submit him for chemotherapy to treat his Hodgkins lymphoma. The family prefers to rely instead on alternative methods. Specifically:
Colleen Hauser testified at the earlier hearing that her son "is not in any medical danger." She said she had been treating his cancer with herbal supplements, vitamins, ionized water and other natural alternatives.
All I can say is good luck with that! Me, I'll stick with treatments tested via the scientific method, thank you very much.

In other news, here's a video clip from my tandem parachute jump last month:
