Jack if you could sell me one, I'd pay double!

I tried to order me a black one the same day as the press release hit, and ANS cancelled my order, becuase of the recall, I even called and pleaded to send it...


either way - Thanks for reading!

I agree with loldongs here..... Haters Gonna Hate, but oh-well.

They do as much for you as those weird shaped rubber bands all the kids are collecting.

How am I hating? I presented facts, I'm actively involved in the discussion, and I even said I'd buy one because they look cool. Providing a counter-argument based on fact and research is not hating.

I never understood the quest to disprove peoples happiness with something whether it be real or imagined. If he thinks it works and feels that it works then by God to him it works. Is it that hard to understand. Why are people so concerened with others and go through research and links and posts just to prove that what you think is helping really isnt and want you to disbelieve in the product too.

Let it go. It works it doesnt work who cares. Noone is being forced to buy or do anything.

Even if they show no true physiological improvement, as was stated in your posted video, placebos have been shown to work. The mind is indeed a powerful thing.

This argument has been done. Done to death.

Mods, please close this thread. The bands are no longer for sale. Period.

Because it doesn't work, and many companies charge outrageous sums of money and promise things they can't deliver.

Researching and fact checking things like this is extremely important. Think about psychic mediums, for instance- people pay huge sums of money to be cold read and often make serious life decisions based on nothing more than fancy guesswork. That's dangerous, or at the very least dirty pool.

In the case of these bracelets, I just don't like that companies are charging lots of money for a rubber bracelet and a bunch of lies. If you want to say, "here's a cool looking piece of rubber jewelry for $20", that's totally fine. Saying, "this piece of rubber and nickel will make you feel exponentially better if you wear it on your wrist! Only $20!" is wrong and people need to speak up.

Is really hurting anything? If they believe it works and feel better then to them it is worth $20.

This is my last post as I also agree with Jack. Needs to be closed.
