Buying & Selling The Souls Of Our Children

buying-and-selling-souls-pokemon

The minister John Paul Jackson passed from this earth in 2015, but not before writing this scare-tome to encourage parents to ban their children from Pokemon.

Unfortunately for Pokemon Company International, his campaign was successful, causing the Pokemon brand to go bankrupt and fail shortly after the book was published in the year 2000, leaving the world with nothing but memories of the once-popular Pokemon.



Ominous Dog

The picture the manufacturer used for this item was probably not meant to be ominous, but it is.



Brain Pills

brainol

“Brainol” is a typical supplement advertised as making you think better and harder. It’s got the usual soup of St. John’s Wort, Huperzine A, DMAE, amino acids and B-vitamins. Several of the ingredients interact with prescription and over-the-counter medications, and their effects on qualities like “mental clarity” or “energy” have never been quantified in reputable studies.

The word “Natural” is not regulated by the FDA, meaning that any manufacturer of food or supplements can describe their product as such. This leads to Natural Brain Enhancers, a pill cheaper than Brainol, containing different brain ingredients altogether. The product Onnit Alpha Brain classes up the word natural by calling it “Earth Grown Botanicals,” an incredibly roundabout way of saying “plants.” Neuro Ignite shows a silhouette of gears literally turning inside someone’s head, and Brain Juice is a drinkable liquid which self-describes as “Energy for your brain.”

My far-and-away favorite, though, is Genius Mushrooms, a combination of three dried and powdered fungi species whose ad copy claims that “Humans share more DNA with mushrooms than with plants.” Despite this, neither cordyceps, nor lion’s mane, nor reishi have been proven to be efficacient in improving quantitative measurements of cognitive health in repeatable, controlled medical studies.

Humiliating Hitler

Time travelers from the year 3123 go back in time to do BDSM to Hitler in a poorly-written ninety-nine cent Kindle book. There’s a “Look Inside”, if you don’t believe me.



Snoopy Sno Cone Machine

The Snoopy Sno Cone Machine is a toy that several of my friends had when I was a kid. From what I remember, not a single one of them ever worked. For some reason,  it’s being made again. According to about half of the reviewers, it still doesn’t work. You’ve gotta hand it to them for sticking to the original design.
