hipster barbie is great
Bought 2 things from Sruli Recht, excited.
Understatement is overrated.
In reaction to someone's reaction about the 80s.
In other essential oils news, my mom just ordered another $1k worth of product bringing the total up to ~$2.5k. Again, we have the money and I'm not in any way trying to control anyone's spending, but I'm starting to get a little worried. This frankincense is $65 for 15ml...
My dude, didn't you just post a Junya Watanabe fit? $2.5k is like half of your outfit.
(I like that fit, btw).
How many thumbs did those oils get in comparison??
The difference is Junya isn't potentially running a pyramid scheme... if he is someone please send help.
I'm actually being serious so I'd appreciate it if you can keep the unproductive snark to a minimum. A good portion of the oils she bought this time is intended for others. Really has all the signs of MLM as far as I can tell.
(And for what it's worth, $2.5k is closer to 3x my outfit... good guess, though.)
What is this essential oils pyramid scheme? Some As Seen on TV deal?
If it makes her happy and she can afford it, why worry? I'm not defending the consumption of essential oils as some sort of replacement for western medicine, but if she wants to consume these oils and she thinks it makes her feel better and she lives a happier life as a result, then isn't that money well spent.
Now if she were to come to you and say, "I think I have cancer, but it's okay I just put a little extra Rose Hip extract in my tea this morning", that would be a cause for concern.
I mean really, can't you just replace "essential oils" for "clothes" and have the same argument apply to a fair amount of the members here?
Technically a pyramid scheme and MLM are different. A pyramid scheme is where I give somebody cash money, but I get paid back by finding X amount of people to give me cash money. MLM is where people buy and sell real goods, but the people higher up in the pyramid make money off of the sales of everybody below them in the pyramid. The goal of both schemes is to get as many people under you as possible, the difference is that (in America, at least), one is able to exist as a legitimate business (MLM) whereas the other is usually illegal (pyramid scheme).
Send me some dope essential oils and I will turn around and give you the best lathering moisturizing body soap you've ever had. And hair/beard oil. I'll even do a cologne with a used tire basenote and jasmine top note to fit the rich-homeless Junya look
also who had the dope blankets post? With reviews of pendleton and woolrich? And I think a mention of swiss army repros? I'm thinking of buying a wool blanket and need some recommendations. Was it you @dieworkwear
Another OK option.
