The stupidest bullshit ever committed to any video medium, The Secret–for the more retarded of the What the Bleep Do We Know? fans–is her latest crap to cram down the throats of the gullible masses. *The Secret * is a “feature length” ( :rolleyes: ) infomercial for the most inane bit of claptrap anyone ever charged $24.95 for. Guess what the *secret * is? If you think about the things you want, the electrical impulses of your brain will go out into the world and *attract * those things to you. This is called the "law of attraction ( :rolleyes: ) and is a closely guarded secret held by all the great figures of history, inlcuding “Aristotle, W. Clement Stone, Plato, Isaac Newton, Martin Luther King, Carl Jung, Victor Hugo, Henry Ford, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Robert Collier, Winston Churchill, Andrew Carnegie, Joseph Campbell, Alexander Graham Bell, Ludvig Van Beethoven, Charles Fillmore, Wallace D. Wattles, Thomas Troward, and Charles F. Haanel.” ( :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ). This “law” is explained by a motley collection of talking heads with professional titles such as “Metaphysician.” ( :rolleyes: )
Some of our Stepfordian customers have asked if we were going to get this in to rent, and we have politely answered “yeah, right.” Turns out [first warning sign], there is no wholesale distributor; if we want to buy copies for the store, we have to pay full retail price–almost twice what we pay for any other title. Also, of course, each copy comes with an order form for the accompanying book. I can’t be cheesed to figure out how much this book costs, but I’ll bet it ain’t $4.99.
Has Oprah become so insulated from reality that she can’t smell the bullshit and scamminess of this thing? She is going to make these hucksters millionaires, and make me hate my customers (yes, my boss paid retail for 5 copies).
