Stuff like that annoys me much more than it should.   A decent product sold with nonsense.

Not sure if this is still something you're looking into but we have a Nutribullet. Bought it BEFORE I was aware of David Avocado Wolfe and his looney tunes. Wouldn't have bought it if I'd known. It works really well, and we use it to grind coffee beans. My wife likes it because she can use it to grind up nuts and things for baking really easily.

It's sad its been invested with so much woo because it's actually a really good product that is pretty multifunctional (blender, food processor, grinder) and could easily stand on those merits. We really were able to replace 3 appliances with one with it.

Hmmm it's an interesting question. I'm not sure it has to negate ALL impact on the brain though (unless you're defining "impact" strictly as brain meets skull), it just has to cushion enough of it prevent the bran from ramming into the inside of your skull.

It's not just the absorption from the legs at play either. The brain is surrounded by cushioning liquid if I'm not mistaken so you just need to get the impact down to the point where the liquid is able to absorb the rest of the force.

I do sometimes agree to ignore the stupid if the eye-candy is worth it. "Matrix" movies, for example. Stupid idea, wooden acting, great "scenery".
That and expectations helps too.  I'll let a Marvel movie do just about anything because, what else would I expect.   Something like the new Blade Runner, I'm going to expect a little bit more from.
Never understood what was so great about "Blade Runner".

Dude - he's like running ON A FRIKKIN BLADE!
Gun runners smuggle guns. Blade runners smuggle Bic disposable razors?

Ringo Starr was the first of the four well-known Beatles to give up his slicked-back DA hairstyle for the classic Beatle-cut.

Today, wild wolves are protected under European law, but werewolves aren't!  Crying wolf!

MOD'S NOTE: A real 'What's the Harm' moment.  Oh - and also shut up CWM.

A secular Buddhist friend compared this to ancient literature, which he also taught. You are using ancient texts to draw yourself into a known psychological state of bliss.

Love is the same way. The bliss of intimacy masks the bad breath and farts of reality.
As a fundamentalist nutjob on a plane once told me "Buddhism is a 'do' religion, but Christianity is a 'done' religion." In that all the hard work of self improvement has already been done before you by Christ and all that you have to do is open your heart to him. Buddhism requires you to struggle all your life to achieve enlightenment.  ::) I nodded politely and put on my headphones after that. Fucking wanker.  :laugh:
