Shame on you, Amazon, for not instantly removing this item and blocking the seller as soon as it was reported to you (which I hope the first customer did).

I thought they were sold by the trusty 'ole electronics firm of "Dewey Cheetem and Howe"

Gives me a great idea!
I'm going to order about 10,000 of those things from the manufacturer, probably in China - and that entity can be found - and I will sell them on Amazon to audiophools at around $94.50 SALE PRICE! . Buy them now before the price goes back up.
Mine will have little antenna like structures sticking out of them and red and green LED's that alternate to tell the audiophool when the audio is in sync or out of sync with the acoustic resonance. I guess it's up to them to determine what the acoustic resonance is.

Its gotta have a couple of tubes in it also! The LEDs could be underneath to make them light up in different colors. :lol:

Audio-phools require something much more complex and expensive. In order to eliminate EMF from the environment to get absolutely the best sound, you have to get the deluxe cable cooker to break-in those cables:

hmmm....I wonder if this thing could break loose those stubborn negative copper ions in my long wire antenna to improve shortwave reception....

The plug has one very important health benefit, it relieves the strain you might otherwise encounter by carrying the weight of excess money in your wallet. (I'm surprised the AMA hasn't picked up on this yet and endorsed it!)

Apparently I should be charging more for my tin foil hats. And tin foil body suits.

Maybe you should purchase a few of these.

Since I work around low level RF all day long I dressed in my new EMF full body attire. I feel some leakage though around the neck area.

"I bought the brain shielding cap....and I wanted to say THANK YOU FOR HAVING THIS PRODUCT. It helped stop the feelings I had from some device that was being used on me. I couldn't believe that the day I put on the cap the feeling and signal was blocked and it instantly felt myself again. I also bought the RF shielding poncho and few others products... I'm in awe on how these things are actually a cure to my suffering."

Gotta love it! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The wife's never going for a tacky tin foil hat, or common baseball cap. You need to get her something a little more stylish:

Just to see if I get a response I forwarded that plug link in an email to jeff@amazon.com.
I read that some people have actually received a response from Jeff Bezos on occasion.


Might be interesting.

And thanks be that fools are rapidly parted from their cash.

My feelings on this are - we need some of that chlorine to keep the gene pool fresh.

The more folks there are that jump at the hook, the less time the scammers spend
trying to get the rest of us. I've half a mind to go into the snake oil business
myself. It's one thing to work for a living, better if you can get them to line up to
just *give* you money.

Yeah, I sometimes think I could do that. But I never do.
