It’s Crazy – Gwyneth Paltrow Actually Sells This Crap

MoonDust-s

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow sells overpriced clothing and beauty products on her site GOOP. The worst of the lot are the Moon Juice supplements. These are mixtures of herbs and spices that are meant to be drunk. They claim to fix all that ails you – ancient crazy BS.

My favorite is the Sex Dust, which claims –

This warming elixir is designed to stimulate and cultivate sexual flow in both men and women. Ancient ingredients from ho shou wu to cacao and maca send sensitivity and power to all the right places, supporting primordial energy and vital essence. Bonus: As it nourishes sexual vigor, it also enhances creativity.

Only $60 (2 ounces) for some Ho Shou Wu to get your sexual flow flowing – buy HERE. Sorry, it’s sold out.

So, you might try Spirit Dust, which promises divine energy, expanding awareness, creativity, peace, and joy, $65 available HERE.

Yes, You Can Increase Your Spiritual Powers

Well… If you are an attractive woman in your 20s, psychic Karl Lang says you can by stripping naked. Good luck with that!

The  Mirror reports –

Psychic Karl Lang persuaded two women to strip naked at séances to enhance their spiritual powers, a court heard yesterday. The women in their 20s wanted to contact dead relatives and it was alleged Lang, 49, told them they “had to be naked as the spirits are naked”. It was also claimed that Lang told them to send him naked pictures of themselves and to carry out sexual acts as it would boost their psychic powers. His first alleged victim, 27, told the jury she wanted to contact her father, who died 10 years ago. But at their sessions she claimed Lang told her he was the “reincarnation of Jesus Christ”. Speaking via video link to avoid seeing his face, she told Newport crown court: “He reassured me what we were doing was completely normal. “I felt uncomfortable but he said that I needed to be spiritually cleansed and to do this I had to strip naked.

Amazing Invention? Inflatable Neck Traction Device

Amazing invention? It appears to me to be a law suit(s) waiting to be filed. At first glance, the Neck Air Traction System sounds reasonable. Neck is sore – place device around neck – inflate to stretch neck – no more pain! What could go wrong? It can be used at home and the office, by both men and women, and it’s only $15. This thing reminds me of the Padaung women of Myanmar, who stretch their necks with copper coils.

The Sunday paper is becoming a rich source for merchandise of dubious value. Last week it had an ad for magnetic underwear, and this week, Parade Magazine had a full page ad for the Neck Air Traction System. View the ad HERE

Harold Camping’s Explanation – Apocalypse Still On Schedule – Send More Money

Yahoo reports –

OAKLAND, Calif. – A California preacher who foretold of the world’s end only to see the appointed day pass with no extraordinarily cataclysmic event has revised his apocalyptic prophecy, saying he was off by five months and the Earth actually will be obliterated on Oct. 21. Harold Camping, who predicted that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven Saturday before catastrophe struck the planet, apologized Monday evening for not having the dates “worked out as accurately as I could have.”

It was not the first time Camping was forced to explain when his prediction didn’t come to pass. The 89-year-old retired civil engineer also prophesied the Apocalypse would come in 1994, but said later that didn’t happen then because of a mathematical error. Through chatting with a friend over what he acknowledged was a very difficult weekend, it dawned on him that instead of the biblical Rapture in which the faithful would be swept up to the heavens, May 21 had instead been a “spiritual” Judgment Day, which places the entire world under Christ’s judgment, he said.

So, he is admitting that he’s just making it all up. He now has 5 months to invent another explanation when nothing happens on October 21.

6 Wealthy Televangelists Are Under Federal Investigation

NakedLaw reports –

When you think of the mega-wealthy who rake in millions each year and live ridiculously lavish lifestyles, you probably don’t think about preachers. But as you’re about to find out, spreading the gospel has become a very profitable business for several well-known televangelists, affording them the opportunity to live in mansions, own private jets, take exotic trips, relax in hotel rooms that cost thousands per night, and even own second and third homes. Of course, these preachers are heads over nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations, so whenever one of them starts to flaunt their wealth, the government is going to take notice. Over the course of the past 3 years, the Senate has been investigating 6 of the wealthiest televangelists to ensure they aren’t taking advantage of their nonprofit status. The investigation has yet to be resolved—it’s safe to say Congress has more pressing matters—but we’re going to share some of the most interesting financial data for each of these televangelists so you can decide if you think these organizations are in violation.
