Wow. Just wow. I don’t even know where to start on this one. It’s a bit too early in the day for me to go through and point out all the major logical falacies and factually inaccurate statements in this one. But I think most of my readers should have a sensitive bullshit-o-meter to detect them anyway. They are rather glaring in any case. But apparently this “holographic disc” which holds massive amounts of information can be placed on acupuncture points which turns it into a wireless transmitter that effects your body’s energy fields and helps to oxygenate and hydrate you for more energy and better health. Yeah… no kidding. Here is the site it is from. And another site selling the same product with the same basic claims.


At least the spokesperson isn’t too hard on the eyes. Kinda sexy actually… kinda.

    [...] This is actually a topic that was covered here some time ago. A hologram is a specialized image recording which allows for photon distribution to be replicated from a 3D source, thus allowing a two-dimensional surface to appear to show a three dimensional object or scene.   High quality holograms, which produce realistic depth and high resolution are expensive and fairly limited.   Cheaper holograms are smaller and often don’t produce much a a 3D illusion, but rather just have a shine pattern that varies depending on angle.  You probably have one of these on your bank card or credit card.  They work as a security feature since they’re hard to replicate.
