EDIT 2/20/11: Power Balance Australia *honestly* admits there is "no credible scientific evidence" that supports their claims! Links are cached pages since Power Balance has removed them. 
Here is Power Balance USA's crooked response:

6/7/10: I came across a booth at this years Boulder Creek Festival that was selling magnetic healing bracelets. People in my group were interested in the godly like healing power of these bracelets and we stopped for a demo. The demo the "healer" performed on me was obviously a scam. Here is how it went down.

Here is the trick:
He asks to put my arms apart, straight out, and stand on one foot. He then pushes down on one of my arms at the elbow and I fall over, expectedly. I put on the magical power bracelet and do the experiment again, although this time I feel him pushing me, slightly inwards towards my center of gravity, but enough to counter my fall.

I called him out but maybe I was wrong, his partner did another experiment.

I stand on one leg with my arms straight down by my sides. He then grabs my wrist and pulls down on my arm, although I feel my arm come away from my body and away from over my leg just enough to pull me over. On goes the bracelet, he does it again, and this time he pushes my arm into my body to where the force is over my standing foot then pulls down, and I don't fall.

I think the people that buy these things are sold by the demo and are so wrapped up in the pictures of proton matrices and sudo science literature, that they forget to be critical of the demo. I even asked the guy to explain to me what a proton and the only think he know was that it was in the center of an atom, that was it.

I then asked if my Mom could perform the test on me, they said she was not "trained" to do so and therefore it wouldn't work. HaHa! That's hilarious! I went home and tried it on an unsupecting person and it turns out I am a highly trained magnetic bracelet healer!

A street salesman claiming to exhibit godly like healing powers for $20 is rarely trustworthy.

BINGO!!! (see below)

We noticed the same thing at the Texas State Fair. My hubby watched a demo for a few seconds and saw immediately the "balance" scam. The guy running the demo would often press his foot against the victims shoe ever so slightly to keep them on balance. Complete scam! of course our first clue was their "proton alignment resonance technology". Do people realize you can't align your protons?

Accept good advice gracefully--as long as it doesn't interfere with what you intended to do in the first place. Do you think so?

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.

One thing is that when you are searching for a student loan you may find that you will need a cosigner. There are many scenarios where this is correct because you might find that you do not have a past credit history so the financial institution will require that you've someone cosign the loan for you. Great post.

A straightening machine is a piece of equipment utilized in rolling mills to levels the surface area of sheet steel. Straightening machines are divided into roll-type devices, which happen to be the most popular type, and stretching machines.
