Specifically about how to become invisible, from a site that sells the secret of becoming invisible for $24.95 US.
First of all, I learned that there is a legitimate need for peddlers of invisibility secrets need to reassure the reader that they are not being tricked into purchasing a “Ninja technique”. I can only imagine the disappointment of finding out that what you thought was the secret to true invisibility was a mere Ninja technique. I called the Better Business Bureau to ask if this was a common problem, and sure enough, it turns out that that is the MOST common complaint against sellers of invisibility techniques.
It also seems to be implied there must be other invisibility packages that do not work when “you’re completely surrounded by cameras or people”. I guess this is extremely frustrating for people who are often completely surrounded by cameras, like celebrities and models. If you are a celebrity or a model, this is the invisibility secret that you should spend your $24.95 on.
The same site also sells the Wizard’s Book Of Animal Secrets.
I wonder how many pages the book spends teaching you how to keep a squirrel in your pocket. I hope it’s several pages.
PS. Their return policy is as follows:
“REFUND POLICY: Return via certified post within 30 days for refund, minus $12.95 restocking fee (includes PayPal/Google Checkout service fees, originating postal and handling fees). Buyer assumes return certified postal fee.”
So that’s pretty tricky.
