Who are those who shop for products paraded in teleshopping and where do they come from?

I suspect any body with even a pea-nut sized brain will avoid buying any thing from them. I wonder how these guys make money? If any body felt cheated after buying product from them, law can help you.

I am thinking of few products which I can market on tele shopping. All I need a dude and a blonde and bunch of jokers. I have a gadget, that will increase the oxygen levels in the living room,  make your electric bulbs more luminous,prevent you from getting cancer from your mobile phones, make your television more eco friendly by cutting out harmful radiation, save your electricity bills, make you loose weight, make you more beautiful, make you more intelligent …

All I need is a VC to fund the advertising session.

Think ‘Ulta’

At last some common sense in packaging. Cadbury comes with Ulta Perk which contains wafers on top and chocolate inside compared to chocolate on top and wafer inside. A clean design, no more mess. Kids can now hold the perk without bothering about the melting chocolate. Less laundary for mother! Patentable stuff.

Surprise, just by going reverse, we are getting many benefits!

Math phobia


People have math phobia because they have to comprehend theorem like the one below.

Banach-Tarsko Theorem Paradox

A solid ball may be separated into a finite number of pieces and reassembled in such a way as to create two solid balls, each identical in shape and volume to the original.

Now, think of having spherical currency in circulation. That would be Sweet!
