Failed as a bootweeker? Fear not...

Failed to set the world on fire with your copy of a copy of a copy of a one transistor booster?

Fear not, you could still make a ton of cash from the gullible and use up your stash of components.

Just wait until these clowns discover NOS parts and all the vintage mojo horseshit that goes with it.

$500.00 for something containing about $2.00 worth of electronic parts (disregarding the amulet itself), that's blatant rip-off and robbery..... :shock:

Can you put a price on being a "harmonious human being, including your auric field"? $500 is just too cheap! :twisted:

I'm probably leaning more towards the fat even-order harmonics, with octaves thrown in to sweeten the mix since I tend to gravitate to the Valve-Sound..... :hmmm:

There´s a huge list of different devices... :shock:

Just navigate deeper in that page to see: http://www.yoyodyneindustries.com/amulets/index.html

Perhaps models to be presented in 2016 will be perfboard mounted and includes true bypass. :lol:

Cheers,

Wouldn't be surprised if they offered models with silver mica, or pio caps and valve diodes.....at inflated prices too...... :lol:


The question is, do they really think some people are that gullible?, probably yes....... :lol:

Now I'm kind of mad.

This one - http://www.yoyodyneindustries.com/amule ... mulet.html - has a video of the genius maker of this shit explaining how one of these things 'works'.

Here's the youtube link - https://youtu.be/4kwL_dZQAfs

Crappy, amateur magician, sleight of hand where he 'throws the amulet into another dimension' with one hand and brings 'another one' back into our dimension with the other hand. You can see exactly how bad his prestidigitation is, insultingly obvious.

I know he's selling this shit to people who are already going to believe, in the best case. In the worst case he's selling it to people who are desperate enough to think that buying these things for the insane prices will help them in some way.

New Age, snake oil motherfucker.

He's basically what the English people would call, a Charlatan, the Sleight-Of-Hand technique he's using is very well known to magicians, and it is so obvious that he's using that technique.... :roll:

Horribly obvious. A complete lack of the necessary misdirection needed to make it work smoothly. Even the blathering horseshit coming out of his head can't distract you from the fact that he blatantly drops it in the the opposite hand or whatever.

But still, he's getting hundreds of dollars a time for a few dollars worth of parts, if you include the actual amulet bits as well as the electronics.

But ...

"When the frequencial resonance of the 13-20-33 ratio is optimally achieved, the chakric system is in full circuitry functioning with vortexial centers, helical intake and outtake receivers and transmitters, intra-dimensional conduits of connectivity, and aligned node points of supra-current flux."

Those are big words, and sound mysterious. I know what I'm buying friends for Christmas! Gotta get those vortexes centered or whatever.

I'm thinking we can safely overlook the "dyne" part of the name. "Yoyo" captures it pretty well!
