Dietitians, nutritionists, detox
advocates, homeopaths... pick your favourite branch of pseudo-science
and one of these apes are bound to be swinging from it!
like to warn the reader that this article of mine is a full-on rant, no
holds barred. So if you can’t handle swear words, or feel offended

that declaratory shit out of the way, it’s time to erect the stake for
what will be a mass-immolation of pseudo experts. And the meat for
today’s festivities: dietitians, nutritionists, detox advocates,
homeopaths, and etcetera—because pick whatever be your favourite branch
of pseudo-science, I guarantee you, one of these apes are bound to be
swinging from it!
Now, I am not the only person who has had
enough of the thumb-sucked advice of those experts who capitalized on
the systematic dumbing down of society, oh, say, over the last 50 years.
As the common man relaxed his mind more and more, ‘experts’ invaded
from the flanks of society with all their useless advice and their ‘no
side effects’ (also no other effects) products.
This is what
happens when you forgo critical thought and allow other people to do
your research for you. Seeing all these sheeple bleat about in misery (a
result of their own mental lethargy) is a rare sight of social justice,
but it also shakes the foundations of civilization.
lofty position in society, I don’t like the idea of the pillars of
progress keeping me high above the reach of the grasping masses giving
way because ‘experts’ are hacking at them. It is the sense of
self-preservation that drives me to occasionally shove my head out of my
window and shout to the man on the street, “Hey, you, don’t buy those
overpriced supplements from that moron nutritionist!” or “Stop listening
to bullshit advice and go read a book on the subject, for god’s sake!”
blame much of this issue on talk shows. People like that money-grubbing
bitch Operah Winfrey and her makeshift panel of experts have drilled
the idea that we are all starving or dying from overeating in some way
into the minds of practically every viewer. Now the poor morons staring
at the tele are hypnotized into the belief that if they don’t detox
their livers at least once a month, they will suffer some decrement in
Have you common folk not learned by now that when
someone tells you of an impending calamity (if you don’t heed their
advice), that they are, most likely, LYING! It’s that old ‘the sky is
falling’ argument all over again. Once more, the shamans raise the
ceremonial daggers and command you to send forth gifts along with your
first-born son, so that the priests and leaders may feast and sacrifice
the innocent to appease the gods into allowing the life-giving sun to
shine again! If you think I am making up some dramatized scene, then go
read a history book (or two), for this is exactly what the Mayan elite
did to their gullible populations at the foot of the temples when a
solar eclipse was in progress.
Also, the Mayan shamans and
chiefs knew very well—for they understood the procession of the heavenly
bodies—that the blotting out of the sun’s light was but a temporary,
cyclic event. This did not stop them from using the masses’ ignorance of
these natural phenomena to enrich the Mayan elite and slay the
But I don’t expect people to thank me for
pointing out the obvious scams of our time. It is, after all, the masses
being taken for a ride who themselves turn around in unison and tell me
to “shut up, heretic! The appeasement ceremony is in progress!”
as this is an imaginary day of triumph (with all these shamans, chiefs,
dietitians, etc. crackling away on the stake) I’d like to extend an
invitation to those climatologists, environmentalists, and some
politicians to join the BBQ. They too have been milking the masses by
telling them that terrible things are coming our way, and that the man
on the street must tighten their belt and lower their expectations if
they are to survive for much longer.
Wake up, people! Wake up
and look at what these vanguards of doom are really doing: taking you
for a fool whilst enriching/empowering themselves off your contributions
More than this I need not say, better than this I
cannot say it. It’s time that you, the common man, shoulder the burden
of critical thought (however heavy that burden may be)—it is your only
defense against invasion by these pseudo experts and their endless
stream of advice and products. Avert your gaze from the hypnotic lights
these bastards have erected to cast a spell over your mind and lead you
And let this be a warning to those intellectuals who
like to relax their minds for extended periods of time after they have
made enough money from their mental productions. You may very well end
up in that sheeple flock, because the mind’s grasp on the trunk of
reason is weak and quickly lets go to grab onto the more accommodating
vine of ignorance dangling nearby.
