Homeopathic dilutions

This is a hoot!

A quote from the full article:

Molecules are tiny: it takes about a billion of them to cover a standard metric full-stop. To put homeopathy in a medicinal context, if you wanted to consume a normal 500mg paracetamol dose you would need ten million billion homeopathic pills. Where each pill is the same mass as the Milky Way galaxy. There is actually not enough matter in the entire known Universe to make the homeopathic equivalent of a single paracetamol pill.
