Okay, I get it, I am a hideous morbidly obese lazy monster.

I don't need to be reminded every 2 minutes!

1. Wouldn't be equally effective and less drastic

to blow the television's brain out ?

Besides, it's already brain dead.

2. Well, look at it this way:
Blowing your brains out is probably a more effective weight loss method than cortislim. Probably healthier, too.

3. GRRRRR stupid commercial
I mean, come on! If cortisol made people accumulate fat in their thighs, then people with Cushing's disease wouldn't have such spindly legs. Morons.

4. one of the most manipulitive and shameful ad campaigns....
their whole approach seems to be "hey you fat pig, doesn't your life suck? well buy our product or you'll be depressed forever, bitch!"

6. I complained about this yesterday
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 06:00 PM by Book Lover
and found this very interesting review, all about what a crock of bull their claims are. Also that they are currently being sued by the FTC:

7. Add Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and any other

8. Sweetie, see that little button labeled power on your Remote?
Push it.
There. All Better. Now, put your favorite CD into your player, and do something constructive.

10. Federal Trade Commission is Investigating this company for fraud
you might be interested to know.

http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2004/10/windowrock.htm

From the FTC the "defendants weight-loss and disease-prevention claims fly in the face of reality,

So not only are you right to be sick of hearing the commercials - you are right to be suspicious of them!

11. Isn't blowing your brains out an extreme reaction?
Couldn't you just bash yourself over the head until you're unconscious.

14. so what kind of gun are you going to use?
i would recommend a .40 s&w or .45 acp. do use hollow points. a botched head shot can leave you in a bad way for a long long time
