The lack of personal testimonials has me questioning the quality of these products...

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

Right! Every real quackery site has plenty of testimonials.

These pills help you use the power of your mind to overcome anxiety or sleeplessness, or if you'd rather, listlessness or sleepiness.

Note: Placebo Mart take no responsibility for the result of combining Blue Placebo Pills and Amber Placebo Pills. Combine at your own risk.

Testimonial:

I took four of these pills in my morning coffee. It vastly improved the taste of the coffee. Thanks, Placebomart!!!!!!

Good idea with the testimonials, thanks. Though it would be nice to have actual testimonials for the placebos because they can really work even when it's known that it's a just placebo. Something about the ritual can help with subjective things, even pain. I will give them a try to help with sleep. Would any of you SFN regulars care for free samples, whether for actual use or for fun? The bottles will have pretty blue labels on them with the Placebo Mart logo.

Could I use the sleepy placebos to stay alert? Sleep is all too easy for me.

Sure, Mooner! Though I chose the color of the bottles based on placebo research that showed that blue is best for sleep, bright (red/orange/yellow) best for alertness. As for the pain relief, I was trying to decide on what to do with the green bottles I also have. Now that I think of it, I shouldn't use the blue labels on the amber bottles, hehe.

By the way, I had to buy the bulk blank sugar pellets from a company that also sells homeopathy. I feel so dirty!

This is such rich material to play with.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

That's also footnote-worthy; to mention that you're using the same suppliers as some homeopathy companies, just cutting the cost/middleman...

All products and pictures now available. I decided to have the domain resolve to the Shopify storefont; no sense in reinventing the wheel. Now for some business cards to bring to TAM 10. Fun!

My suggestion about the warning note about mixing different placebo-pills wasn't just for SFN's amusement. Feel free to use it at your web-site.
