Question Machina Dynamica Snake Oil ????

Machina Dynamica;
Teleportation tweak, is there something in it or is it just a load of **** for the gullible.

I'm afraid i tend towards the latter view, bit like brilliant pebbles and magic Dog Turds. I may have made up the last one though it sounds plausible.


What are the opinions on the rather touchy subject of "Fools and their money"

If Uri Geller tells you that this time, he really will use psychic powers rather than lies and trickery to bend a spoon, would you bother asking, "Is it possibly true?"

It's even less plausible than the magnets on the fuel line trick for better fuel economy or that special pheromone perfume that makes women throw themselves at you.

It's interesting that such ludicrous cons are mainly directed at typically male oriented products. You don't hear of the magnetic frying pan that reduces calories or the special counter-clockwise vacuum cleaner with the Teflon cord that makes your carpet cleaner than ever.

If it wasn't for the claims of cosmetics companies I'd say men are looking pretty gullible.

At least with the other products you get a funny looking cable or a special stone, This guy is selling a 30 second phone call. I wonder what he says to your sound system in that 30 seconds. You may as well stick viagra tablets through the vents in the top of your amplifier.

It's just different stuff marketed to women. My wife has closets full of quack medicines, magic weight-loss pills, astrological hooey, "herbal supplements," and the ever popular anti-aging creams, pills, lotions, and sprays. She gets psychic readings regularly. My favorite quote of hers: "It's fun believing in all sorts of things that aren't true."

Lightbulb Teleportation

my other half; the "Beer Midget" has pointed out that if you give these people your credit card # they magically Teleport funds from your account to theirs. That may be the Tweak

Check out the Belts. They wrote the book on selling nonsense to gullible audio idiots. I think MD was an apprentice of theirs, but with the teleportation tweak, the student has become the master. It will be interesting to see if the Belts come up with something even more ludicrous and reclaim the title...
