This article is probably going to make me sound old. Maybe I simply have to accept that. I’m getting older. I don’t want to, but I can’t fight it.

I don’t really want to explain how this shit works but if you don’t trust me, then trust the reports you can find here:
One more time: It’s SCAM. It does not work. Under no circumstances. Just give it some thought and you’ll be able to figure it out yourself. How should it be possible?
