That is....if she posts at all.

People buy anything if they think it works.. Any idea how many "gangsters" are out there selling crap to people...

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

Actually I think it's meant more as parody (on abuse/misuse of pharmaceutics in the US) and also wants to point out the pollution of water with pharmaceuticals (a problem that is in spite of wastewater treatment not solved).
I'm not sure if you really can buy it.... ;)

Could be, havent really checked it in detail.. just wanted to point out that there are a lot of idiots out there selling all kinds of crap.

It also reminds me of "a case" a year ago or maybe 2 years ago here in europe where someone was selling "air" ... A lot of people bought bottles of this person selling "clean air".

I really never understood why people bought it... :blink:

and the thing is: 90% of them knew they were buying nothing more then a bottle with air in it...
