No doubt snake oil products are full of s**t.

Wires should be routed as straight as possible, no sharp bend. This to prevent synchrotron radiation.
Synchrotron radiation See Wikipedia.
Same for PCB tracks, one can get a better sound, cutting track corners so that electrons make less synchronous radiations running at curves.

One needs to be objective in order to see that everything is thoroughly saturated with snake oil. We live in such an era. Name any product you use, from a car to a mobile phone, from services to politics, and there will be tons of the best and fattest snake oil. Even in the cheapest aluminum wire, market experts will always explain to you why it is better than copper wire.
By the way, who was the manufacturer of snake oil? Giordano Bruno or those who burned him?

It's given me an idea, though. Perhaps I should offer a remote telekinetic house-cleaning service? I will think your dust-motes and pet-fluff into oblivion from the comfort of my home, for only $199.99 Canadian per psychic housecleaning.

And for your further enjoyment, I offer up this absolutely brilliant small business: Rapture Pet Care Takes Care of Your Pets After the Apocalypse

I guess that also means single-sided PCBs only. The sharp 90-degree bends at the two ends of a plated-through-hole via would emit far too much audio-damaging synchrotron radiation otherwise.

Indeed, however this makes mini black holes in the vias that swallow some of the bad radiations.

Now now, behave yourself, it's not a lot of fun to joke about such things that do not exist, nor will ever exist. Think of all the gullible people that may someday read your post, and actually believe that such things are real.

Yeah. Besides, that's incorrect anyway. Everyone knows the vias are actually shortcuts used by the little dudes racing up & down the traces on their tiny Tron-cycles, delivering some Diana Krall song or another.

<ahem> (Sorry; a bit past my bedtime I think.)

If I didn't have any scruples I could get so rich.
