  1. Bottled Water.

    Research suggests that for most Americans, the stuff in a bottle is not better for you than the stuff in your tap. In fact, a recent report found that almost half of all bottled water is actually derived from the tap, but may be further processed or tested for safety

    300 percent profit for a natural resource in plastic bottle.

  2. When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!

    But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit!

  3. Religion.


    *See there’s this thing, that nobody but me can see. And it talks specifically to me, and it gives me good advice on how to live my life, and good advice on how you should live yours. And I’m going to give you that good advice, but because I’m going to spend all day giving you good advice that is completely indistinguishable from my own personal opinion, I don’t have time to actually get a real job and work, so I’m going to need everyone else to pitch in just a little bit of their income to pay for my living expenses. Yes, I know that if a thousand people pay me 10% of their income, I would be making the same as 100 times the average of those people. No, I don’t see a problem with that. And if you do anything I think is bad, you’re going to be tortured forever and everything in your life is going to be miserable and I’m going to convince the entire community to treat you like shit completely out of love.*


    I mean, really? I still struggle to figure out how anyone was dumb enough to fall for this shit in the first place.

  4. U.S.A said there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. They invaded the country, killed its leader, killed millions, stayed there for decades and returned without finding any Weapons of Mass Destruction.

    And they claim to be a beacon of peace and democracy lol. Not one country took action against the USA. Nobody wants to be on the receiving end of America’s wrath.
