Video of the day -- this person is a nut

Reminder:  being a celebrity does not confer any expertise or authority whatsoever in medicine or science.  And there are many scams like this out there.  Learn to spot the signs.

I find Gwyneth highly amusing.

OMG! She's bad-mouthing the queen of worthless shit. I love this kid. Goop should be closed down. Really. They promote stupid shit that is overpriced and some of it is downright dangerous.

Debra: Amazing that people fall for such stuff.

Lady M: Well, yes, but considering this stuff can harm people (or at least make them waste money), it becomes less amusing.

Leanna: Amanda's one of my favorite YouTubers. She has a sharp eye for bullshit. See also here and here.

I love surfing Youtube and upon finding Amanda through you I believe I have found the Goddess of Snark. She's a hoot and a half. Thank you from the bottom of my soulless black heart.
BTW, something you should check out...
That white power sign that all those idiot KKK dudes keep flashing actually means asshole. Yep. I shit you not. I do believe Karma and her bitchy sister Hindsight have struck again.

Goop is selling snake oil as luxury items. I just can't with Paltrow and her pseudo-science-hocus-pocus.

Paltrow is a nut. The products on the Goop website are not only crazy but crazy expensive.

"Reminder: being a celebrity does not confer any expertise or authority whatsoever in medicine or science." Yes. (I'd also add economics, finance and a few other things to that statement.) Paltrow really bothers me with her level of audacity in making eye-rolling claims and her willingness to profit from others' desperation and naivete. I know evil is a strong word, but I believe she's at least approaching that, if not already there.

The only reason GOOP isn't endorsing the treatment linked here is because there's no money in it.

I would like to feel good all the time but do not have, nor have I ever wanted a"Hoohah". Does Gwyneth have anybody working on this?

Mike: She's a great talker.....

Leanna: I know, she's very entertaining.

Sixpence: I guess if you're going to scam people, go for the big bucks, right?

Mary K: Well, they say a fool and his (or her) money are soon parted.

Jenny_o: I agree. She's endangering people's health with this stuff.

Rancid: What is it about idiots stuffing weird things into themselves?

Geo: I'm sure she'll figure out how to tap the male moron market eventually.
