Now you know how it feels.

Some people find empathy in shared experiences; some find it after rubbing colloidal silver on their skin:

[Paul] Karason, who recently moved from Oregon to Madera, Calif., said it hasn't been easy living with blue skin.

"I do tend to avoid public places as much as I can," he said.

Karason made the move in hopes of fitting in a little better.

"I hope that they just accept me," he said, "And I think that will happen here. Where I was, I rather doubt it would have. This is different kind of community here."
Yeah, yeah. I linked to FOX News. They had the best picture.

When I first watched the video clip from ABC news about this, I was thinking "that's a strange skin condition". But when I found out that this guy was drinking colloidal silver and rubbing on his face, I thought "what the hell is wrong with him." I mean, I'm fairly sure that you're face wouldn't be blue if you quit drinking and bathing in that stuff. I guess it's no different than my mom obsessing over herbs and vitamins for health reasons. Still think it's strange.

Actually, I read that the skin-turning-blue thing is PERMANENT. Sucks for him!

Dude won't even go to a doctor about it, either.

Don't say we didn't warn you when people start calling you 'Papa Smurf.' Just saying.
