On a slightly disturbing note however, scientific research has this year demonstrated that vinegar could actually be INCREASING the active venom in a patient's body by 60% thereby, in case anyone hadn't figured it out, killing the person FASTER!! Dr: "Oh, apologies to all those over the last several hundred years who actually made it to shore only to rather disappointingly um kill themselves."
