They then go on to list so MANY side effects, you would probably be just as
well off to stick with your original single ailment!
One medicine lists "compulsive gambling" as one of your possible freebies!
2. How about TV ads that say you can only get the item at the stated price
for the next 5 minutes? They show a countdown timer. Oh, so if you tried
to buy it in SIX minutes, they wouldn't sell it to you?
3. How about battery-powered devices that use batteries that don't exist
in regular stores? You may have to pitch the device upon battery death.
My favorite is the disclaimer "you should not take X if you are allergic to X"
Really? I shouldn't take a medicine that I know I am allergic to? Wow, you learn something new every day.
I just wonder who the morons are that actually need this warning.
