I just saw a basketball game that disappointed me severly. It's late at night and instead of enjoying my first good day of eating in awhile I ruined it with the last of the potato salad & a slice of ham lunch meat. Five minutes before that:  dry Wheat Chex.

Call it karma that I'm doing a late-night review on the Great Shake Today Shakes by Herbalife. 

So as I go digging into this, I'm going to look at this as a reviewer and as a potential customer. It's something I should always do but I feel a touch incentivised.

BTW - a glass of caffeine-free Diet Pepsi, too. I need to stop.

Scam Alert

So far we've liked everything we've seen, which wasn't much on the blog review side but was quite a few on the video side. We posted a playlist of findings below. 

But we came across something that tested our computer's spam filters:  On the right you'll see a bunch of Google SERPs that all have the same listings but are on different links. After we clicked a couple of them we got taken to a site that try to ask us a survey question or get us to buy Starbucks gift certificates. We didn't really want to further test our anti-virus programs any further so we thought we'd take a snapshot and let y'all know to avoid them. There's a good chance there's some evil stuff going on. 

If you decide to click on some of these listings that look like this, make sure you anti-virus program is brought up-to-date. Hopefully, Google cleans them out before too long, and the creator of that program doesn't come gunnin' for us .

As promised, here's the video playlist:

We'll be surprised if the product isn't a success. We'll keep our ears open for more information but so far, we like what we've heard. Customer Service:   Consult privacy policy on

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

Review - InstaBulb w/ Anthony Sullivan - Another Classic My Grandfather Used

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
