oakley sale 5 Products that Will Be Expose

5 Products that Will Be Exposed as Bullshit in 2011

Sadly, Power Balance is only one company among hundreds that actually got caught throwing shrink wrapped bullshit at the ignorance and insecurity of consumers. No one is willing to believe a product doesn’t work until science discredits it, and science is already too busy with cancer and hoverboards. But with any luck, the exposing of those bracelets will act as a harbinger for consumer skepticism throughout 2011, in which case I predict the following five products will fall as well. If you happen to read this article in 2012 and you have no idea what these items are, then I’d like to hereby announce myself as a prophet. Also, congratulations on not dying in that Mayan disaster those guys didn’t know what the hell they were talking about.

The nascent toning shoe industry is already marketed at about $4.6 billion, and the Shape Ups shoe is responsible for half of it. Yet, as it stands, only one independent study has been conducted to make sure they actually work. The American Council on Exercise ran a field test on Shape Ups as well as the Reebok equivalent, Easy Tone and, surprise, they suck. The ACE released a statement saying, “There is simply no evidence to support the claims that these shoes will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone.” Still, toning shoes continue to sell because the single ACE objective study is overshadowed by the countless “tests” conducted by the shoe companies themselves and also commercials like this.

If you’ve ever accidentally left an unfinished light beer in the sun for two weeks and then mistaken it for something you wanted to consume, then congratulations, you already know the flavor of Kombucha. It’s a fermented tea made of bacterial waste and water that allegedly wards off disease and tastes like opening your mouth under a leaky trash bag after a fraternity party. The people who swear by it insist that it does everything from improving eyesight to fighting cancer. It’s sold all over the country in health food stores, but anyone can brew their own in a basement after buying a gelatinous hunk of the yeast.

Despite Kombucha’s enormous popularity, there hasn’t been a single human trial published in any medical journal. So all the claims about its superpowers are personal testimonials, and to be fair, so are all the accounts of its horrific side effects. The American Cancer Society published oakley sale a statement saying, “No human studies have been published in the available scientific literature that support any of the health claims made for Kombucha tea. There have, however, been reports of serious complications and death.” Doctor’s linked the tea to the hospitalization of two women with metabolic acidosis, one of whom ended up dying. So the same drink that was meant to fend off deadly diseases like cancer is likely responsible for destroying a few lives as well. Best of all, the American Cancer Society warns consumers that the bacteria can be extremely dangerous to anyo oakley sale ne with a compromised immune system, specifically people with cancer.

The problem with the technology for television in particular is that it’s reliant on the accurate refiguring of objects shot with a normal camera. That’s a pretty painstaking process. For anything that has to be refigured into 3D graphics quickly, like a football game, there’s going to be some clunky alignment and some inevitable nausea when your eyes can’t adjust properly.

And of course, those goddamn glasses. Not only are they uncomfortable, but while wearing them, you can do nothing else but watch the screen. For anyone who eats, uses the Internet or persuades a date to allow a hand in her shirt while watching television, these tasks will all be significantly harder while wearing magnifying sk oakley sale i goggles. No one seems to be taking into consideration that this technology has the capacity to ruin h oakley sale igh school dating forever.

5 Presidents Who Were Total Badasses in Their Youth

Before he was given the task of crushing the Southern rebellion, Abraham Lincoln volunteered to help crush a Native American rebellion back when he was 23, during what was called the Black Hawk War. It took place in 1832 after a group of Native Americans crossed the Mississippi River into Illinois to reclaim their land from white settlers and had almost nothing to do with the professional hockey team of the same name.In response, the government scrambled to put a militia force together, and oakley sale Honest Abe was voted company commander of his band of volunteer soldiers. Although Lincoln was proud of being entrusted with this command, it was reported by the men that the appeal of electing him as their officer was that they were able to do whatever they wanted. Serving under Abraham Lincoln was apparently less like Full Metal Jacket and more like Our Gang and/or The Goonies.For example, like most modern day rural militias, Lincoln’s company never saw actual combat. But they d oakley sale id spend plenty of time drinking all of their whiskey supplies, which was something they used to issue to soldiers because conventional wisdom has worn many strange masks over the centuries. When Lincoln’s troops ran out of their own booze, they teamed up with a neighboring company to use tomahawks and buckets to raid the .When Abe awoke, he discovered that someone had shaved his mustache.Lincoln tried to call his men into formation the next morning, but they were nestled peacefully beneath a hazy cloud of sleepy booze farts and didn’t manage to crawl out of bed until after 10 o’clock, by which time the rest of the militia companies had already left them far behind. Lincoln’s troops managed to march about 2 miles before simply giving up and going back to sleep to cast off the rest of their hangovers. Lincoln was arrested and forced carry a , because old timey justice was occasionally hilarious.Despite the fact that his men made almost no effort to listen to anything he said, Lincoln still had a blast being a militia captain . And if there was one thing Abraham Lincoln loved, it was kicking people’s asses. He gained a reputation as the best wrestler in the army, because apparently they just wrestled all the time instead of actually trying to quell the Indian rebellion they had been mustered together to pacify. Abe lost only one of his completely insane wrestling matches, to a man named Thompson, a soldier from a different company whom he battled for the right to choose the best camping spot, according to an actual historical document containing the sentence, “.”1. College Student James Monroe Ransacked the Governor’s HouseWhen 16 year old James Monroe was attending the College of William and Mary in 1775, one of the most popular extracurricular activities for the young student body was to harass the local British governor in the name of the impending American Revolution. As opposed to the type of civil disobedience that currently takes place at William and Mary (which consists mostly of purchasing licensed merchandise from a movie by the Wachowskis and reblogging things), Monroe and his buddies would .They’d dance beside the signs reading “Keep off the grass.”And because there were no panty raids in 1775 (largely due to the fact that women were forbidden by law to come anywhere near an institution of higher learning), Monroe led his colonial Animal House on a raid of the next best thing an enormous stockpile of weapons from the governor’s mansion.See, the colonies were scant months away from full blown war with England, and tensions were pretty high. So the Royal G oakley sale overnor of the Colony of Virginia, Lord Dunmore, thought the best way to keep the peace in the little slice of stolen Powhatan land the crown had tasked him to protect was to at all times. This seems to suggest that Lord Dunmore’s appointment was largely political, and not at all related to any demonstrable ability to govern things.He thought the guns were pretty.Anyway, when the militia fighting started to get serious, Lord Dunmore packed his royal bags and got the hell out of town, abandoning his mansion with everything still left inside (although he presumably stopped at a few local taverns to spread the word that it was haunted in order to keep it safe from plundering colonists). Monroe saw his opportunity for the biggest college prank ever and raided the palace, loading up around 200 muskets, 300 swords, and 18 pistols that were delivered directly to the local militia.Again, these were all weapons that Lord Dunmore just left behind in his house like stacks of old Pokemon cards ( oakley sale see “terrible governor,” above). Monroe dropped out soon after to and never did earn his degree, which didn’t stop him from achieving the highest office in the land, in case you were wondering how little college matters (answer: not at all, if you are sufficiently ambitious and/or insane).Always on the go but can’t get enough of Cracked?
