PR Stupidity

Today, I came across this video of Patrick Moore refusing to drink a quart of glyphosate after claiming it was safe to drink:



And aside from the stupidity of the "doctor," I was reminded of the guy (found it, B.T. Collins) from the California Conservation Corps who, in an attempt to get people to accept the safety of malathion, drank a beaker of the stuff.  He got sick, but he did survive.

I wish I could find the picture of him at the press conference after he drank it.  The beaker is empty, and he's got this look on his face like he's going to throw up (and a little bit of, what the hell did I just do).
