Excellent post, Hopinso! You should get an RR for this one.
I don't think most people here realize how important the discovery of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement could be to EVERYTHING that you mentioned.
I saw a movie where a couple of crooks steal a bag, and it turns out to be full of millions of dollars. Instead of unbridled glee, the smart one says to the dumb one, "Do you realize how much trouble we're in?" (because he knows that someone BIG is going to be on them like white on rice)
