Montecristo Captain Quixote

You find the damnedest things on Lew Rockwell's site...Skin brushing?!

You'd think that a site devoted mostly to libertarian, anti-state, anti-war, and free-market idea writings would not produce as many surprises as it does, but Lew Rockwell's site always manages to surprise me with oddball articles on all sorts of articles on topics tangential to the site's main theme. Today it was skin-brushing. What?! It sounds to me like one of those new-agey health fads, or an invitation to foreplay, rather than something that's supposed to be good for your lymphatic system, or better still, a cure for cellulite. Right. They're only doing it for the health benefits... Ah well, one of these days I'm going to have to try that invitation on a lady eager to explore new healthcare ideas. Heh. It's the twenty-first century's answer to the line: "How'd you like to see my incredible stereo system?"
