I created this page using information on the chemistry page. I'd never heard of the "universal panacea" before.

Doesn't the word panacea imply universality? PlatypeanArchcow 04:50, 22 May 2005 (UTC)


Is the claim about Vader canonical? JoshuaZ 06:17, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I'd like to see a source on that. Also, can someone get an IPA pronunciation on this? I'd do it myself, but those "a"'s are ambiguous. Commander Nemet 09:11, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Philosohper's Stone[edit]

The reference to a philosopher's stone contradicts the "Alchemy" entry, which links to here.

Star Wars[edit]

Does the Star Wars stuff really belong here? I'm sure there are many, many fictional links that we could drop in here. For example:

The Stimpacks in the computer game Doom are a type of panacea, as they heal chemical and heat burns, as well as bullet wounds and rocket trauma.

This isn't the first unnecessary Star Wars stuff I've seen on a non-Star-Wars page. Is there a "Put in Star Wars Trivia" task force on Wikipedia?
