Defying Empire commemorates the 50th anniversary of 1967 Referendum

Half of completely worthless is $29

By johnboy - 21 September 2011 25

reiki for $29

Bimbogeek has kindly directed my attention to a bomber deal on Living Social.

For the low, low price of $29 you can go to Scullin for Reiki instead of the usual $70 (which is also the going rate for horses).

Bear in mind this is a treatment on which wikipedia has this to say:

the evidence is insufficient to suggest that reiki is an effective treatment for any condition

What’s Your opinion?

To quote 30 Rock:

Jack: Are you familiar with the Japanese art of Reiki?
Liz: No.
Jack: It is the laying on of hands in order to improve one’s life.
Liz: How does your life improve? Do the hands have money in them?

I would ask what the ACCC has to say about this, but then I wonder, does the gov’t have to step in for every dumbass buying silly nonsense over the net?

bought and used the Whale Watching voucher. Outstanding Value!! cost $29.00 each and usual price was $65. There was no complaint or ugghh from the staff and we got a great trip and saw whales and dolphins and had morning tea.. etc.. I agree though, be careful what you buy. I still have the Indoor Golf voucher to use and in Scoopons I bought a Picture Book which I will finish off online and report its success afterwards

Watto 23 – “Cosmopolitan” medicine now officially dominates in Japan yes, but it seems to for most of the industrialised world. The effectiveness of the treatment solely lies with the ability of the person practising the technique. Bit like getting a bad doctor , and then saying that western medicine doesn’t work. The world is consumed with people wanting to rip you off, it’s not the wagon they get on you should blame though, it’s the authenticity of the individual’s claims. Indeed we are made to think natural healing is all rubbish, and we should buy pharmaceutical stuff instead, maybe so the economy doesn’t suffer, or so the fat cats stay fat, you make your own judgements. But, only judge through experience where possible though. Western and Chinese medicine both work, but for different purposes. If something is expected to fail, good chance it will. Don’t throw away fruit your are told is bad, without tasting it first.

Well, I’m convinced!

I grabbed a deal on Cockington Green they had, took the KaosKlan last school hols, no probs with the voucher, had a ball for not a lot of $$$.
But, some of them be wary of, especially some of the car and home service ones, be careful and phone the place first as some do not honor these vouchers.

You only should buy these deals from reputable businesses. It’s been well known that a lot of the companies doing this are going out of business and this is a last attempt to pull them out.

Also, if its too good to be true, then it probably is.

I’ve got a few deals off living social, but I steer clear of these local service based ones. But I’ve got two large canvas prints for $50 each done and they were pretty quick in printing and delivery.

Of course now they send me deals all the time, none of which are close to the price I’d pay for them.

It’s even funnier to know that it was invented in Japan last century but hardly anyone practices it there anymore.

People in this business should get the hint…

If anyone wants the trest of the barrel you can have the whole lot for $14.50, save another 50%!!!

Is it Organic® Biodynamic™ Vegan Friendly© Reiki energy, or that evil chemical based stuff which is only good for horses?

I don’t like the chemical based stuff. I looked it up on the interwebs and it says the active ingreadient is the souls of dead puppies.

I bought a livingsocial deal from ACT Energy Healing Centre the first time they ‘advertised’

Since then, they have yet to even answer the phone or return calls to book an appointment in. 🙁 serves me right for thinking I could find a worthy massage place close to home.

Winter is just like a hangover but without the Alcohol?

But I had lots of alcohol over winter. So I guess that post winter feeling is just like a hangover. Couple of Panadol, a Berocca, and a bacon and egg roll and I should be good as new!!!

troll-sniffer 10:08 am 21 Sep 11

Aha. So that’s where my barrels of time-expired Reiki energy ended up! I thought the buyers looked a bit shifty when they came around to pick it up. The deal nearly didn’t go through when they tried to pay with Enron stock certificates.

I’d have my doubts about the efficacy of the energy within the barrels I sold (asuming it has been cut with other cheaper energy). After the buyers left I found another barrel in the long grass, and feeling a bit run down, I opened the seal and tried some. I dunno what I was supposed to feel, but I’m still feeling run down and listless. If anyone wants the trest of the barrel you can have the whole lot for $14.50, save another 50%!!!

I think I got caught with the Gutter Cleaning scam. Paid $88 and arrived home yesterday and it seems like nothing has been done. No sign of any debris or other stuff from my gutter.

I feel like I have been conned.
Recovering from major surgery so cannot climb ladder to check however.
