And this is the guy who just tried to chastise me for not being "adult."
I ignore nothing.
When I heard that, I went out to my shop and tried something. I set up two lenses and tried to see the rings of Saturn during the day. Not sure what the focal length on them was, so I just set them a little ways apart. My experiment failed... I couldn't see anything but blurry sunlight! So I guess you didn't really build a telescope after all, since it's obvious from my experiment that it's not possible.
I do both. I go to a doctor and get his opinion
When I'm sick and I'm uncertain of what to do or what to take, I go see a doctor. Simple. I don't go onto WebMD or whatever else there is on google because I understand that I'm incapable of getting the nuances, subtleties, histories behind certain treatments, symptoms. It would take me days, at the least to, comprehend a fraction of these. Days I do not have, and cannot afford, if I'm sick. So I go see a doctor. Somebody trainined in that specific area. I'm both humble and wise enough to do this.
You understand that people do actually build their own telescopes Redneck?
It's your life though.
Your doctor is likely a member. Mine probably is as well.
Membership in the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a conservative-libertarian group of private-pay doctors, increases by about 10 percent a year, says Jane Orient, executive director of the organization, which has 5,000 members.
The association has promoted a range of scientifically discredited hypotheses, including the belief that HIV does not cause AIDS, that being gay reduces life expectancy, that there is a link between abortion and breast cancer, and that there is a causal relationship between vaccines and autism.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know medical doctors had to get your approval to be MDs.
Don't worry about it though. Phage doesn't think we should listen to them anyway.
