I saw this on Amazon and couldn't help but share. If you can make it somebody will try to sell it.

Probably has a licorice taste, or maybe raw petroleum.

Whether or not we care do admit it, we ALL fall for gimmicks at one point or another.

There is a specific product that Wegman's sells for 99 cents a pack of 24, which I have seen multiple places on Amazon for up to $20 per pack of 24. The moral of this story is that not everything on either Amazon or anyplace else on the interwebz is a bargain. Caveat Emptor, buyer beware. Before you spring for anything, anywhere, look around a bit. You might be surprised at what you find.

Absolutely, I generally find Amazon to be quite a bit higher than other places. Not all the time, but often enough that searching pays off. Sometimes I can find the same thing as the same price, but I don't have to pay sales tax if I don't buy it from Amazon.

I'm on a forum that, I swear, is owned by Amazon. Any product that is posted is from the Amazon website.

No not Amazon, camping world.

But that said Amazon is a quick place to find dang near everything so if I need to post an example of a widget.. I'm likely to go to amazon to find it. or Google will find it on Amazon cause it's a top advertiser.

And if not amazon. then Camping world.

(I often include a disclaimer that you might find a better deal elsewhere).

That said... I just posted a link elsewhere for a product I actually bought.
NOT amazon, NOt Camping world but another supplier from which I get a lot of electronic "Junque".


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Black Water Drink or blk H2O is Purified alkaline water sourced from multiple springs & aquifers in the US & Canada added with a concentrated solution of Humic & Fulvic minerals which contain powerful electrolytes & nutrients that occur naturally in plants & soil giving the H2O its black color.


Real thing but LOL I wouldn't buy it cause my mind is always 'black tank, black tank water HA' but for the world, yea someone is gonna swear this is a miracle water on the market for sure [emoticon]

I feel ya, bro! I've noticed the very same phenomenon myself, but I've also come to the realization that I'm still in the process of getting less dumb. Meaning not all the dumb is definitely out yet.
