The most entertaining pieces of flim-flam on the Internet are the pseudo-science scams. Especially the ones that use the word “Quantum”.
These people speak the magic words that they’ve heard scientists say, (Words like “Quantum”, “Particle”, or “Frequency”) and they build things from componants they’ve seen scientists use. (Things like crystals, wire, and metal coils.) And when it’s done, they don’t understand how to scientifically test something, so they just trust their instincts, and their instincts tell them that if they put that much work into something, it must work.
Hilariously, it doesn’t work.
Mayan Quantum Energy Pyramid in the USA
These people needed money to build a pyramid to capture quantum energy during the Mayan calender roll-over.
It’s really two pyramids in one. The first is a “particle decelerator” and the other a “energy amplifier”. Of course.
Apparently, they actually built and deployed this pyramid last December, which explains why that world is so much more peaceful and happy now.
Quantum Abundance Generator
Stripped of all the verbage, this is a good luck charm. It will make you happier, richer, and healthier. Additionally it will reduce crime in your neighborhood, and cause you to make new friends.
I’m not joking, those are all things he claims these spheres will do.
I suppose it’ll also make a nice paperweight.
What are they made of?
The usual nonsense, but “Monatomic gold” is my favorite. Monatomic gold is a substance used in new-age alchemy that is made by dissolving certain dirt in sulfuric acid and baking the resulting goop at high temperatures.
Interesting Facts about “Monatomic Gold” :
- It is not monatomic.
- It contains no gold.
- It is not a superconductor.
(But of course you can buy little vials of it to use as an old-timey cure-all.)
Ziblee beverage pleasure enhancer
It’s a tiny whisk, about the right size to make a robin’s egg omelet, with a quartz crystal inside the wire part. Apparently, they’ve “installed certain frequencies” into the crystal, even though that’s not really a thing you can do.
“So really, this is like quantum physics for the wine drinker. What this does is it impacts the beverage on the molecular level.”
If this were true, it’d be very dangerous. Luckily, it is not true.
On the other hand, I really do like the stand.
