The Bionic Band. It's science. You can look it up.

I hope there isn't already a thread for this. Somebody sent me this link "should I buy this? do you think it works?" I need smarter friends.

Have you witnessed the amazing results from this small attractive band? "Proton Alignment Resonance Technology" (P.A.R.T) is Perfect World Solutions, Inc. own way of aligning the Protons of a Nucleus of Base Metal at a Subatomic Level. This fabulous mastery of forcing protons to spin or resonate in the same direction is a secret no more. Either is the wonderful affects this technology has on the human body. Just touching the skin with Perfect World Solutions Bionic Band creates balance, strength and energy. If you have not seen or been amazed by this wonderful product wait no more. Need more information? There is plenty to read and watch on these web pages but you will be amazed when you try the balance and strength tests yourself. This is jaw dropping technology. I don't care who you show: family, friends or strangers their jaw will drop, their head will shake and they will want your BionicBand NOW!!!
My favorite part

Natural resonance or nature's frequency is no gimmick. Plus, this is not a new science: Albert Einstein's famous E=mc2 mathematically described how matter is nothing more than a form of energy, and that all energies vibrate. The Bionic Bandô ensures that your energy vibrates the way it is supposed to operate.

3 rubber (I think. It's the Lifesport/charity bracelet material) for $75?!?

Or one nylon one for $55?


And I thought profit margins no mattresses were huge.



BTW: I'll sell you a shoelace for $35. It's harmonically energetically resonant. And useful!

And I thought you needed an MRI to get all your electron's orbits into the same plane. Do you think MRIs work on protons too?

Actually, MRIs work specifically on protons, not electrons. It's called nuclear magnetic resonance imaging for a reason.

Edit: Obviously this doesn't mean that wearing a $25 rubber band is going to achieve anything.

I believe it's called a "magnet."

And here I thought we were talking about a musical band named The Bionic Band. Would they play techno?

I thought MRI was changed from Electron Spin Resonance because the name was too "scary" for use as a medical technology.

My mistake, ESR is related to NMR. NMR excites protons while ESR does the same for electrons. Both are good forms of spectroscopy. It is NMR which became MRI for the reason above.

There's got to be a "male enhancement" marketing angle here somewhere. Impress your lover with astounding vibration and energy!!!"
