MLM diet shakes and smoothies



Don't be duped into buying into those mlm shake scams. I just got a post removed from the University of Windsor Students page that was selling this scam. Just look how it doesn't actually tell you what your "cut" of the supposed 2 million dollars is. A previous payout from their own page states "The prize pool was split equally among all 100,273 qualified participants, both Coaches and Customers, equaling $16.31 each" This was for a 1.6 million pot. Doesn't sound so good now, does it?
and
The sad part is this particular person is an RPN at a nursing home. Who knows what bad information she is giving those seniors.

Zambia huminoid shape in clouds



This pic is spreading around the internet coming from sources just like David Wolfe. Well first off David Wolfe is a nutcase so anything from him is always highly suspect (yeah this dude has literally said that mushrooms come from outerspace and chocolate aligns with the sun). This was reportedly visible for 30 minutes. 30 mins and only 2 photos and no video??? Photos also look photoshopped. If it is not photoshopped, then it is most assuredly a case of Pareidolia (our psychology that sees patterns where there is none...us magicians use this to our advantage all the time in performing ;) ). We see shapes/patterns in clouds all the time of course. Some can be quite striking like this one of a "hand of God" : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3419473/Is-hand-God-Incredible-cloud-formation-Portugal-looks-like-fist-Heaven.html

That Moment When...


The Western use of Karma


Karma only works when it's convenient.

Karma is Bullshit as is the law of attraction. It is not like gravity as that is measurable and Karma is not. . Karma only happens in hindsight. It's like with so-called psychics. You remember the hits and not the misses. It's wishful thinking and infantile. Saying there's no time limit is moot as that doesn't show any proof as you can't prove that such and such bad thing happened because of the behaviour of this past event 20 years ago. Bad things happen and good things happen. That is a part of life. It's not mysterious. There's no mystic intention behind it. Sure if you play the odds and you are a very nice person, you may have people reciprocate good deeds. But to call that mystical is dumb as it ignores the evolutionary benefit of cooperating societies. Also, to easily disprove karma and the law of attraction (as Jennifer LaBonte alluded to) is look at persons, even children if you will in dire circumstances. So if you can look at this pic of this child and think karma and the law of attraction is giving him his due, then you are a special level of delusional.


http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/07-03-07/ "The danger to society is not merely that it should believe wrong things, though that is great enough; but that it should become credulous, and lose the habit of testing things and inquiring into them, for then it must sink back into savagery… It may matter little to me, in my cloud-castle of sweet illusions and darling lies; but it matters much to Man that I have made my neighbors ready to deceive. The credulous man is father to the liar and the cheat"

It also begs the question. What if person A causes harm to person B. By rule of Karma, person C comes along and causes harm to person A (aha! Karma!). Does person C get to have a bad thing happen to them for doing a bad thing since it was Karma that initiated it????
