This past Friday, I overheard two women at work discussing a detox foot bath. It sounded familiar because about a year ago, someone was trying to sell detox foot pads, which turned out to be a complete hoax.
I told the woman about this and then emailed them a couple of links that discussed why and how those things were essentially snake oils.
One of them said very interesting in a disingenuous way, and the other didnt talk to me for the rest of the day.
I also see this behavior on a mineral collecting website that Im a member of. New people will often ask about the magical properties of crystals Most will get argumentative or leave after a post or two. Occasionally they will see the light, but not often.
*sigh*. I guess people will believe what they want to believe regardless of evidence to the contrary.
Happiness is not the result of a mathematical equation comparing the good times and bad times someone has had. It is a state of mind.
