Washing powder with "ACTI-STAIN TECHNOLOGY" and "WASH BOOST"
the prompt for starting the thread was the fact that my shampoo was "anti-flattening" and boasted "3-D technology".
BUILT-IN SOAKING ACTION

try ctrl+f'ing software on this:
but both are frequently misappropriated by pseudo-science bullshit pedlars
It's like fucking alchemy.
Just like everything else in the universe.
Apparently its grill vents close to save fuel. I was under the impression the vents serve an aerodynamic purpose, removing them [closing] would surely increase drag and therefore fuel consumption will be greater.
And also the bloke in the advert seems to be getting far too pleased by the fact his dashboard reminds him of the speed limit
I don't know which.
Would also have implications on engine cooling also.
Speaking of engines, that Start/Stop thing a lot of cars have these days sounds a bit of a nonsense too. Firing the engine probably uses a fair bit of fuel and doing it lots probably affects engine life too.
"Daytime running lights" also. When did they become a thing?
They even.have them on the new C1,etc. It just looks day, like running around with spotlights on all day
And what are 'the 7 signs of aging'?
From personal experience the list is probably:
1. Wrinkles round the eyes
2. Grey hair on the head
3. Grey pubes
4. Hair in the nostrils
5. Grey hair in the nostrils
6. Not listening to anything on Radio 1 anymore
7. Getting up more often in the night for piss
If there's a more fraudulent compound than this, I don't know about it.
that anti-aging cream makers get told by marketing what to put in them. Usually fashionable stuff like pomegranates or wheatgrass. Then they BS their way into faking some science to show how wonderful it is for your skin. When really of course they should research the best anti-aging ingredients then make a cream based on that, even if it ends up containing boring stuff like bananas, or more likely just random chemicals.
The worst is caffeine in shampoo. I know coffee perks you up when you drink it, but how that could possibly translate into energising your hair into growing more is beyond me.
The shittest of all of the shitty marketing techniques.
It's where you make a claim about the contents of a product which, although factually accurate, cast misleading aspersions as to the qualities of said contents.
For instance... Evian water CONTAINING CALCIUM TO HELP KIDS GROW UP HEALTHY. Now, Evian water does contain calcium. It does. However, the amount of calcium it contains is so tiny, it would have absolutely no benefit to the child of drinking it above ordinary tap water. This is a classic example of angeldusting.
telling you how it contains hazelnuts, cocoa and some sugar. Neglecting to inform parents its main ingredient is pure vegetable oil. No wonder it perks them up in the morning and gives them energy.
used to enjoy reading it. personal fave was him saying 'kills 99.9% of bacteria? cmon guys! we're so close! surely we can get that 0.1% if we just try a little bit harder!'
He just always seems a bit smug.
Some shampoo or something contains this. Google tells me it should be Huyaluronic Acid. Doesn't sound like that in the advert.
Without any mention of what the test results actually were.
Then the small print at the bottom says "65% of 127 people agreed", which is anything but a resoundingly positive response and a fairly small sample of people.
