He's Got the Blues

For real! I saw Paul Karason on Oprah the other day. What a crazy thing to happen! I can't understand how this man thought drinking & putting silver on his face was safe. Silly old fashioned remedies! I certainly do not want to be that kind of blue girl. (sorry-original video no longer works, here's a new one)

I have a hard time believing this unless this guy is a hermit:
"It was so gradual, nobody noticed," he says. "It wasn't until a friend came by who hadn't seen me in a while. … He said, 'What have you got on your face?' [I said,] 'I don't have anything on my face.' And he said, 'It looks like you've got camouflage makeup on or something. You better come here.'" Paul stood in front of the mirror with his friend and realized his unbelievable transformation.

This is why we need to keep an eye on our elderly, although, Paul isn't very old at all. What's funny is that if you click on the Oprah link, he wore the same outfit for both. It must be his "good" clothes.

I'm with you. No matter how gradual the change, people would notice this.

My guess is that he was still considerably lighter when the friend pointed it out to him. The blue tint in his skin must've darkened a lot since that day. That's the only reasonable explanation I can think of.

I think there's a politician in Colorado or maybe California who turned blue from drinking the stuff. Okay, Montana.

Wonder how many more idiots are out there?

Okay... That guy is a freak! LOL Brings a whole new meaning to "til your blue in the face!" :^P

Does anyone else wonder if this would be a problem when going through and MRI machine? Maybe I watch too much House MD! LOL

Ha, ha! Did anyone else catch that when he was talking about the benefits, (big sniff) "Well, like no more acid reflux. No more sinus troubles." Yeah, sure sounds like his sinuses are clear.

What was going through this guy's head? He heard the silver was helpful for petrolium poisoning so he figured it would be helpful for something completely unrelated like a skin rash. Sounds like the guy on House using a crazy shot-in-the-dark treatment and it ends up working. Too bad this isn't TV.

Joanne said...

Sounds like I need to start watching House!

Teriana said...

I don't ever watch House, I just see the skits when they make fun of it on MAD TV

Holy cow Joanne! This flipped me out! We'd used silver quite a bit in the early 2000's internally for "boosting" the immune system. My FIL and BIL have the machines and would send it to us and we also gave it to my older DS. We hadn't had any problems from it (that we know) but we certainly didn't apply it to our outer body! The guy looks crazy! I'm pretty certain the DH's family still uses it, we used to like I said quite a bit for a lot of things. The DH almost bought one of those machines. Needless to say his family is anti-medical anything! Thanks for sharing and great site!
