As reported in News of the Weird:
quote:
Ariel Alonso, who lives near Roanoke, Va., was indignant when the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration wrongly accused him of setting up a methamphetamine lab, and asked rhetorically, after the charges were dropped in January, "How do I get my ... dignity back?" The laboratory of Alonso (and his then-partner Jonathan Conrad) was in reality making the so-called "fluid of life," which they goaded customers into buying (at $20 to $40 a dose) by claiming that it is the component of human cells and can cleanse people internally and build new tissue, even though it was just potassium chloride and white grape juice. (That, apparently, is the business plan that gave Alonso "dignity.") [Roanoke Times, 1-25-04]
Are health scams usually a good way to build self-esteem?

Evidently, I rock!
Why not question something for a change?

Screw dignity and self-esteem. I could buy both from the million bucks I could make selling that stuff, if it was legal to do so. Isn't that kind of swindling criminal?
Spiking fruit-juice with salt, huh?
