The Mathematics of homeopathy:

http://timesonline.typepad.com/science/2010/01/homeopathy-by-the-mindboggling-numbers.html

"To put homeopathy in a medicinal context, if you wanted to consume a normal 500mg paracetamol dose you would need ten million billion homeopathic pills. Where each pill is the same mass as the Milky Way galaxy. There is actually not enough matter in the entire known Universe to make the homeopathic equivalent of a single paracetamol pill."
