In idle moments, I sometimes contemplate what might be the ultimate symbol of uselessness.
Up to this point, my leading contender was an empty ice-tray in the freezer.
But I think this tops that: a headline from Spiegel Online that reads (my translation) "Catholic Doctors Want to Cure Homosexuals with Homeopathy".
Amazing: doctors trying to cure something that is not a disease with something that is not medicine.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new champion in the world of meaninglessness.
