At least it will fit on my balls. You should grow a pair and share the results.

This thing is great! I can jump off my roof and stop speeding bullets with my teeth while wearing this. Before getting this, I could hardly get off the couch.
definitely a MUST BUY

I was going to say that it is the same concept as phiten. You see a lot of pro baseball players wearing these.

Power Balance files for bankruptcy after retracting health claims

Power Balance, the Laguna Niguel company behind the silicone bracelets favored by athletes such as Shaquille O’Neal, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The company has suffered a net loss of more than $9 million in the 10 months ending in October after earning a $11.7 million profit last year, according to documents filed in federal court in Santa Ana on Friday.

Its bracelets contain “hologram technology adopted from Eastern philosophies that is believed to improve and enhance people’s lives,” according to the filings. Power Balance employs about 40 people.

The company has struggled with a class action lawsuit originating from “inappropriate marketing claims” from an Australian distributor, which in turn led to Power Balance losing customers around the world.

Advertisements claimed that the wristbands improved balance, strength and flexibility -- benefits that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission challenged.

The agency said last year, after Power Balance admitted that there “is no credible scientific basis for the claims,” that consumers who felt misled would be offered a refund.

I know someone who has bought into this bullshit. They said I should have an "open mind"

I am about as open minded as people get, but not when it means being willfully ignorant. So at that moment, I learned that sometimes having an open mind means being stupid.

This scam was on 60 minutes.

For the balance test on one foot first they pull the hand down and away. With the bracket on the just pull straight down. Think about a ladder. You can put hundreds of pounds on it and it will not move. But you can push it over from the site with one hand.

was at the mall the other day and i swear these things were in 8 of the 10 stores i went into. mind blasting.

that being said, catch me on the right day with a couple extra bucks in my wallet and you might be able to sell me one of those phiten ones in the summer for no other reason than a couple look neat and my wrist feels naked since i stopped wearing a watch. lol

I have a friend who is a manager for them here in HK. I get so frustrated when I am talking to him and I just want to fucking yell in his fucking face that he is selling stupid shit and if he believes any of his own bullshit he is an idiot.. but I can't

I put one of these holofoil cards in my pocket and it gave me the strength to lift like a level 67 Machamp.



edit: I just found two of them on eBay for $0.01.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-1st-Editio...item35b875594f

MUCH better deal than $40 for one of those bracelets that do the same thing if you ask me.

I bought a sweat band a few months ago.
Sweat used to get in my eyes.
But now my game has improved drastically since then.
Only cost me $5. I swear it really works.
