    Of course E-Smarmoney can match you up.
    I once went there just to see exactly what type of women were on there and lo and behold --- I am faced with answering about 250 questions.
    At least I think that's how many, maybe more.
    I BAILED OUT after around question 20 or so.
    I can see how they really CAN match people up.
    They just review the questionnaires and -- VOILA -- perfect matches.
    I'm NOT knocking them, just that I don't have time to do 3 hours worth of paperwork.

    Here in Europe, you bought a Volkswagen, after the whole diesel scandal Americans got refunds while in Europe nobody got anything, not even a free filter added on a car.
    Apple slows down your phone, Americans get their justice, in Europe you need to pay to fix it of buy yourself a new phone and so on...
    Good job USA!

    Well actually sketchers did exactly what is said just not in the same context. See I bought the shoes and they got me out of the house to run. I wasn't running before but those shoes got me in the mood to run because of the whole fitness thing they represent. Due to that I lost 50lbs. If I didn't buy them I'd never started running an eating healthy

    es, you know that I’ve been looking at you for a long time

    I must dance with you today (DY)

    (Daddy Yankee)

    I saw that the look in your eyes was calling me

    Show me the path that I will take (Oh)

    (Luis Fonsi)

    You, you’re the magnet and I’m the metal

    I am getting closer and making a plan

    Simply thinking about it makes my heart race (Oh yeah)

    (Daddy Yankee)

    Now, I’m already liking it more than usual

    All of my senses are asking for more

    We cannot do this in a rush

    (Luis Fonsi)

    Slowly

    I want to breathe in your neck slowly

    Let me murmur things in your ear

    So that you remember if you’re not with me

    Slowly

    I want to undress you in kisses slowly

    Firmly in the walls of your labyrinth

    And of your body, I want to create a manuscript

    Up, up

    Up, up, up

    I want to see your hair dance

    I want to be your rhythm

    Want you to show my mouth

    Your favorite places (Favorite, favorite baby)

    Let me trespass your danger zones

    Until I make you scream

    And you forget your last name

    (Daddy Yankee)

    If I ask for a kiss come give it to me

    I know that you’re thinking about it

    I’ve been trying to do it for awhile

    Mami this is giving and giving it to you

    You know that with me your heart goes bom bom

    You know that from me that babe is looking for a bom bom

    Come try my mouth and see if you like its taste

    I want to see how much love fits in you

    I’m not in a rush I want to experience this trip

    Let’s start slowly, then savagely

    Step by step, soft then softly

    We come up against each other, little by little

    When you kiss me in that state of distress

    I see that you are malice and delicacy

    Step by step, soft then softly

    We come up against each other, little by little

    And it’s just that your beauty is a puzzle

    But to finish it here I have the missing piece

    (Luis Fonsi)

    Slowly

    I want to breathe in your neck slowly

    Let me murmur things in your ear

    So that you remember if you’re not with me

    Slowly

    I want to undress you in kisses slowly

    Firmly in the walls of your labyrinth

    And of your body, I want to create a manuscript

    Up, up, up, up

    I want to see your hair dance

    I want to be your rhythm

    Want you to show my mouth

    Your favorite places (Favorite, favorite baby)

    Let me trespass your danger zones

    Until I make you scream

    And you forget your last name

    Slowly

    We’re gonna do it on a beach in Puerto Rico

    Until the waves scream Oh Lord

    So that my seal stays with you

    (Daddy Yankee)

    Step by step, soft then softly

    We come up against each other, little by little

    (Luis Fonsi)

    I want you to show my mouth

    Your favorite places (Favorite, favorite baby)

    (Daddy Yankee)

    Step by step, soft then softly

    We come up against each other, little by little

    (Luis Fonsi)

    Until I make you scream

    Vi que tu mirada ya estaba llamándome
    Muéstrame el camino que yo voy (Oh)
    Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal
    Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan
    Solo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso (Oh yeah)
    Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal
    Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más
    Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro
    Despacito
    Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
    Deja que te diga cosas al oído
    Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo
    Despacito
    Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
    Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
    Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito (sube, sube, sube)
    (Sube, sube)

    Not even the copper bracelet. Snake oil. Omg. Omg 😱 I knew it wasn't true. Glad never fell for that. They still doing these type adds there is no miracle thing and natural herbs be best anyhow if any exist. Sugary.
    I didn't see the news or hear of money back or law suit. Darn. I signed up for emails of all lawsuits so won't miss any. If had yes b4 would have seen ones I could have gotten in.
    There is apple cider vinegar and green rea. Green tea worked for my friend,but she was young in 2's and never had a child. Now that she does no idea. I asked, but not sure got straight answer. I'd believe the mini wheats, but rice Krispies crazy.
    How would you prove you bought the item so long if you don't have receipt and not on a bank card,etc that so far back. I bought all those food products. Darn where is my money ? Yeah noticed Julia's perfect wrinkle free picture.
    She should not be part of deceptive. It's about money. Yeah I had the Shapeups sneakers. Still do. I kept them knew. Their ugly bulky and embarrassing to wear. If only watched the news a bit after bought them I might have known of it.
    Yeah I thought it was too good to be true,but got them anyhow. I later saw the ones that look normal that you mentioned after or whatever brand it was and wish I had gotten those.
    I wanted to keep them new, cuz cost me so much even on sake,etc. I forgot how much I paid, but not $100 or so,like maybe $50 something. Some of these products are still around like vitamin drink,which some flavors I like,and still believe was better for you.
    The 1st male enhancement commercial was so stupid with that big breasted beefed up lady. Such a tacky gal. Lol😂 omg 😱. Surprised they did not go for once of those Barbie doll or Penthouse types, dumb bimbo airhaids. Omg 😱. Sorry to say that,but it is what they are or called.
    I research now that have a cell and the technology when I see something new in a commercial or infomercial promising to solve a problem I'd like to solve in my life to save time, money, struggles, etc.

    The commercials, which really make me laugh, are the ones that claim that their product works “because it has a patent”. A patent application requires no proof that something works. You don’t even need a prototype, to get a patent. All that a patent does, is prevent someone else from copying your product or process. It’s no endorsement of a product’s performance.

  • Peri Grinn
    Peri Grinn 5 месяцев назад

    Any ad with someone wearing a white lab coat and calling himself "doctor" or "scientist." Always verify these. They probably have doctorates in philosophy or English literature, or they got an associate degree but that was at least ten years ago and they never did any actual scientific work. Beware these woo peddlers. Also the woo peddlers who claim "500 doctors" or " 1000 scientists when asked...." Same sort of poop. A common misleading tactic, because the surveys may have been cherry picked rather than random, and/or the "scientists" are in unrelated fields (ie not their expertise) if they are scientists at all and not, for example, a "chemist/scientist" who got a degree at a diploma mill in 1995 and worked as an auto mechanic or landscaper ever since.

I'VE ACTUALLY HAD TO FACE SEVERAL POLICEMEN OVER THIS TYPE OF "OBSOLETE AD" ISSUE, WHERE PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T WANT TO BE CONTACTED BUT COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY I HAD RESPONDED TO THEIR ADS --- "I TOOK THAT AD DOWN MONTHS/YEARS AGO!" The cops all let me go, however, when I explained about this to them --- "These companies are recycling their ads just to make profits; I can't help it or even know if the ads aren't valid anymore."
