Go to the link at the bottom of this page find and watch the video (infomercial) and recommend some for your naturopathic Christian Science friend. Read the Press link (top of the link) and background report (highlighted in the lower left of the link), incase you don't get the joke.

Are you feeling depressed? Sick of paying exorbitant rates for birth control? Try Alviso’s Medicinal All-Salt – harvested locally at the 01SJ Biennial.
All-Salt is a unique low-dosage cocktail of our most commonly used drugs, all brought together in one simple salt remedy. Our process harvests two popular commodities, sea salt and recycled pharmaceuticals from water treatment plants, to produce All-Salt: a medicinal salt for every condition, hand harvested and sun dried for purity.
At the 01SJ Biennial, All-Salt founders will build and operate on-site salt evaporation ponds, offer up samples of their fine product, provide tours of South San Francisco Bay harvesting waters and industrial salt ponds, and provide information on the medicinal bounty supplied by the yet-unregulated pharmaceutical disposal industry. http://www.all-salt.com
I had not read this... that is dark humor!
I want to open them all and hear a big boum.... !
Cartoon Laws of Physics
Cartoon Law I
Any body suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of its situation.
Daffy Duck steps off a cliff, expecting further pastureland. He loiters in midair, soliloquizing flippantly, until he chances to look down. At this point, the familiar principle of 32 feet per second per second takes over.
Cartoon Law II
Any body in motion will tend to remain in motion until solid matter intervenes suddenly.
Whether shot from a cannon or in hot pursuit on foot, cartoon characters are so absolute in their momentum that only a telephone pole or an outsize boulder retards their forward motion absolutely. Sir Isaac Newton called this sudden termination of motion the stooge's surcease.
Cartoon Law III
Any body passing through solid matter will leave a perforation conforming to its perimeter.
Also called the silhouette of passage, this phenomenon is the speciality of victims of directed-pressure explosions and of reckless cowards who are so eager to escape that they exit directly through the wall of a house, leaving a cookie-cutout-perfect hole. The threat of skunks or matrimony often catalyzes this reaction.
Cartoon Law IV
The time required for an object to fall twenty stories is greater than or equal to the time it takes for whoever knocked it off the ledge to spiral down twenty flights to attempt to capture it unbroken.
Such an object is inevitably priceless, the attempt to capture it inevitably unsuccessful.
Cartoon Law V
All principles of gravity are negated by fear.
Psychic forces are sufficient in most bodies for a shock to propel them directly away from the earth's surface. A spooky noise or an adversary's signature sound will induce motion upward, usually to the cradle of a chandelier, a treetop, or the crest of a flagpole. The feet of a character who is running or the wheels of a speeding auto need never touch the ground, especially when in flight.

What's the name of the law that makes heads turn into wolf heads, tongs fall out, and eyeballs pop out when a pretty girl walks by?
Haha! It's called the "devolution" law.
Q: What's the difference between cosmology school and cosmetology school?
A: Cosmology school doesn't give make-up exams.
