I've seen a few of those pop up, all posted by some of the stupidest people I know, and each one promises various illnesses can be remedied with useless "cures." It's disgusting to me that someone actually creates the pictures and such that make those claims, and it's infuriating that people propagate them.

When I first got out of school, I had a shit job in the legal department of a company that ran a pyramid scheme selling sugar pills and claiming the cured basically every disease, from lactose intolerance to alzheimers to cancer (not going to mention the name, because one of the things I did there was to monitor a web crawler that scoured the net for any mention of their trademarks.) When I say "sugar pill", they were literally made of sugar, albeit some kind of fancy sugar that gave people gas and had some psuedoscientific. The way that some of these people went after dying people in order to make a few bucks selling them false hope really got to me after a while. I was so happy to leave that job.

I actually met kevin trudeau once back in the early '90s. He was peddling his Mega Memory program and I went to a free seminar and got free lunch. He's a charismatic fucking salesman and I have to admit I was almost convinced to buy his book on tape and workbook and whatever the fuck it was. This was really before the internet so I had no idea the guy was such a huckster and fraud, but I remember walking outside for a minute and thinking, "this is such a fucking crock of shit? Why the fuck would I buy this?" and left. But I really have to feel for people who fell for his later "miracle cures" bullshit.

This company also claimed that it was inspired by God and had kind of a quasi cult environment. A lot of the company was filled with people who had either completely drunk the kool-aid or were brilliant sociopaths who could completely fake convincing human emotion (my boss was the latter), but basically all of the legal department was not fooled at all Maybe because most of what we were there for was fighting off suits by the FTC, FDA and state AG for making false claims.

One of these days I'm going to post a picture of myself holding a sign that reads:

"Slogans are not more meaningful just because they're on a big sign"

or something like that

There's some "school" down in California run by a former research physicist that teaches people about all kinds of bullshit therapies. Energy field manipulation, no-touch healing, Reiki, etc, etc. You actually get a degree, albeit an unaccredited one. The founder counts serious about all of it. Hard to tell if she's just crazy or a scam artist.

A crazy scam artist will do in her case.

Sonofabitch...someone just updated us that his son was getting circumcised today. Thank goodness no penor photos were posted (there were photos of them in the surgery area though) but seriously?

Not dumb exactly, more like eh.gif

"That Moment, when you grab an octopus for dinner, and try to dispatch it by biting its brain Hawaiian style, and it goes full Aliens Facehugger on you!!! Done this a million times, but this one successfully got its tentacles in my mask. I respect a creature that goes out with a fight. ^_^ Tastes better."
