If crystals can cure cancer, and if magnets can mend bones, then Charged Water will take away all your other ills. This specially diesigned water arrives to you in a special plastic flask. You meditate in fornt of it, along with some candles, and focus your ills into the water. The water, being specially designed, captures your negative energy. You then pour the water, containing your negative energy, down the drain. Repeat. You will feel better, lose weight, have more energy, and feel like a million. Only $29.95 for 2 bottles. (BJP)

       A good emulsifier will be needed so that the snake oil mixes into it properly.

       Sounds no more effective than a good soak in the jacuzzi. And bottled water that costs more than gasoline is plenty Baked.

       Price of scapegoats gone up?

       Oh come on, do you really thing there are people who are dumb enough to pay out good money for what is in effect nothing more than plain water in a fancy bottle ?   

       Er .... are you planning to sell shares in this ? Email me ...

...and if they can't, it won't.

       This could help people release negative feelings by letting them reach some sort of catharsis. The water of course wouldn't do anything, it'd be the ritual surrounding the water. Like looking for a smooth white rock when your stomach hurts. Of course anything would work, but marketing "Charged Water" as a quick fix might interest people that would otherwise not try something of this sort. Also, you'll gouge money from boobs. Always a plus.

       [blissmiss]: There must be a line drawn between where biofeedback could augment conventional medicine, and where it shouldn't even be attempted. On the right people, biofeedback could supply the mental strength and therefor the stamina required to go through, say, chemotherapy, which is an excruciating experience. Others might try to faith-heal their cancer and die. It is the persons right to throw their life away. It is wrong to trick people into doing it.
I realize this was meant as a joke, but some things should not be encouraged.
Two thumbs down.

       However, you could use Jordan river tapwater. I'm told important people were baptised there.

       I believe bliss is speaking of positive thinking not biofeedback which is something else altogether.

       I think that it's absurd to pay $29.95 when you can have good energy and be healthy for little or no money. If you're smart.

       Only while walking.

       You're going to allow people to pour water containing all that negative energy down the drain? Not in my back yard, buster! For that $29.95 you better be prepared to come and reclaim every last bottle with one of those Ghostbusters trap devices or some kind of nuclear waste disposal apparatus.   

       I'm calling the EPA.
