In the legendary quantum physics experiment, Schroedinger's cat was proven to be both alive and dead. There and not there. So it is with Amazon's endorsement of its products. I have stopped all emails from Amazon after receiving this one earlier this week.
The mind boggles. Amazon - possibly the world's largest owner of intellectual property and information - is promoting online courses in 'psychic development' and 'spiritual healing'. How exactly they come up with £19 and £24 as the price for each online tutorial is baffling to me.
Surely this is one for Advertising Standards. Charging money to be taught how to use psychic powers is up there with Homeopathy and Quantum Healing as snake oil salesmanship of the most callous variety.
Amazon ought to know better than to promote this new age bullshit, lending their credibility to quacks and charlatans.
I'm sure there will be some sort of get-put clause, stating that their smallprint disclaimer for the promotion already covers this. 'We don't endorse the products we promote' or some such wheedling.
I propose an online course in bullshitology. £23.97 for one hour of online tuition in how to use your chakra hole to sense bogus online courses.
Note: The online products I promote in this blog are actually not promoted by me at all. Ha ha. I just take your money, profit from your credulity and use it to buy more intellectual property rights until I can literally censor and decide which books get printed or films are made.
See what I did there? My bullshitology course is both there and not. Alive and dead. Like a cat. In a box.
