Printers.

I've got a WiFi Lexmark all-in-one thingy which works quite well but I've just bought new cartridges for it which were over 60 Euros - the printer only cost 50 Euros and it came with cartridges. I think HP and the others are much the same with the possible exception of Kodak who apparently do ink at...

Re: Power Balance Bracelets.

Seems to me that they must have suckered an awful lot of people if they can shell out 57,000,000 dollars and still stay in business.

Their advert says that Glyphosate acts upon an enzyme only found in plants not humans. Turns out the enzyme is found in bugs in our gut. Could be interesting... The suit alleges that Monsanto is guilty of false advertising by claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, targets an en...

Re: Bicom bioresonance allergy testing for animals

Yes - obvious bollocks.

I note that animal allergy testing isn't mentioned anywhere so maybe it's something they thought up themselves.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to handle this.

I really don't want any of my money given for bogus diagnosis/treatment.

I will have to think about it.

Re: Regarding expert witnesses and UFO's

nteresting. It appears the popularly reported story ain't quite true (surprised?). But it doesn't change the point that "experts" get things wrong. In this example the first officer initially thought Venus was an oncoming aircraft and then that the actual aircraft was above them and descending towar...
