Amway has some competition!

A friend of mine tried to get me to sign up to sell this stuff.



He claims he makes at least $1000 a month from it, for only a few hours of work a month.

I told him I refuse to lie to people to get money from them.

I don't think we are friends any more.

Here's the site.

On the other hand, no one ever went broke overestimating the stupidity of the American public.

Wow, what a load of crap.

They try to imply that there was some sort of unexplained miraculous burst of light and that it was mysterious that there was no crater. But it's all easily explainable. The comet, asteroid or meteor exploded 3-6 miles above the surface which was why there was no crater. Also, the fact that the area recovered is remarkably unremarkable. That is what happens after an event such as this. The earth, and life, are much more resilient than they are typically given credit for. The area around Mt. St. Helens has recovered quite well, for example.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunguska_event
Quote:
The Tunguska event, sometimes called the Tunguska explosion, was a massive explosion that occurred near the Podkamennaya (Under Rock) Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai of Russia, between 7:00 and 8:00 AM on June 30, 1908.

The explosion was most likely caused by the air burst of a large meteoroid or comet fragment at an altitude of 5 to 10 kilometers (36 mi) above Earth's surface. Different studies[1] yielded varying estimates for the meteor's size, including 60 meters[2], 90 to 190 meters[3] and up to 1200 meters in diameter[4].

Although the meteor or comet is considered to have burst prior to hitting the surface, this event is still referred to as an impact event. The energy of the blast was estimated to be between 10 and 20 megatons[5] of TNT 1,000 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. The explosion felled an estimated 80 million trees over 2,150 square kilometers (830 sq mi). It is estimated to have measured 5.0 on the Richter scale.
The wiki article goes much further on and it's a pretty interesting read.
The History Channel also has a special on this every so often.

That "confederated products" scene from the movie Go was just confusing to me. But I guess the scam is real.

It's simply a pyramid scam.

Any site with "Home-based opportunity" on its front page is probably a scam.

Yeah, if you can go to a company's website & read how it's employees are getting rich selling this product, it's not the snake oil they're trying to sell. They're selling dreams and your friend is a customer. Not an employee.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here & guess there are probably seminars and motivational tapes/books required?

I love the ultra-fake image of the guy in the suit holding a bottle of this stuff.

I looked at their "Coast-to-Coast" tour where they had a picture of the Space Needle, but it turns out they're not actually coming to Seattle. I kind of wanted to go to one of their presentations out of morbid curiosity.
