what, pray tell, are they trying to do by beating rubber bags of distilled water on iron tables? I must have missed that testimonial.
I like when on Cable Tv, where Im sure the standards for ads is probably nonexistent, theyplay these ads that start with a premise like
"WHICH FAT BIRNER IOS THE BEST"
"OUR FAT BURNER IS BETTER THAN THEIRS BASED UPON THE REGIMEN OF DETAILED SCIENTIFIC TESTS WE PERFORM"
"OUR FAT BURNER CONTAINS (insert name of some tropical berry or fruit here) WHICH < AS WE ALL KNOW< IS NATURES MOST PERFECT FAT BURNER"
They have, just by repeating it enough, created the term"fatburner" which then emerges as an accepted term of science. IZZAT BULLSHEET OR WHAT?
Im sure taht, out there in tv land are a bunch of people like our own gungasnake who will buy stuff like that just because its repeated enough into their heads.
Another one is the magic "almost cold fusion" basis of these AMISH STOVES that, by the ads that are proferred us, must reach some new state of nuclear critical mass to create the amount of heat at vast energy savings on your electric bill.
Really dumass because the production and distribution of the ehat is merely an attempt at diffusion of radiant and convective heat based upon a series of resistance elements. AS someone said, there is no fuckin free lunch(especially with your electric bill)
