Do they sell structured snake oil too?

Well some scams never seem to end apparently, and some people will always fall for something. There is a new business here in Angel Fire, , that is recycling that long discredited quacker of clusters of structured water, and also putting extra oxygen in the water.

The whole basis behind these "water clusters" is that they can structure the water into some kind of clusters, which supposedly go into cells faster. However that is not the case at all. A Nobel Prize was given out in 2003, for research that showed that water molecules pass into cellular pathways, 1 at a time. Not in a structure of other molecules, just 1 at a time, so its decidedly unstructured.

And then they make claims that putting extra oxygen in the water, somehow puts extra oxygen in the bloodstream, giving you energy faster. Thats another hoax, because, well, we dont have gills in our stomachs and we derive our oxygen from our lungs and alveoli, not from gases in drinks. Even if they do put more oxygen in the drink, a lot of it will leave when the top is opened, (gaseous partial pressure laws come into play) or you will burp it out, just like you do with carbonated beverages.

I hope to put the word out regarding this scam, and inform more people about this so they dont spend 3 dollars on a bottle of water. Say NO to Angel Fire Water, and their scam. This is their scam in brief, from their website.

Angel Fire Water Co., LLC brings you water that is:

Structured - assists in rapidly hydrating the body
pH balanced - much of our disease is caused from unbalanced pH
Super-Oxygenated - oxygen is necessary for proper metabolic function
Never chlorinated - chlorine is toxic
Pure mountain water

It really gets deep on their brochure link, however you might just lose IQ points reading it, so you have been warned.

Tom Macrae, you are the biggest asshole in the world.

Probably one of those same people who moves next to an military base or airport and complains about aircraft noise.

A wake-up call from Luke's jets

Jun. 23, 2005 12:00 AM

Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base: Whom do we thank for the morning air show?

Last Wednesday, at precisely 9:11 a.m., a tight formation of four F-16 jets made a low pass over Arrowhead Mall, continuing west over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet. Imagine our good fortune!

Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we need this wake-up call, or were they trying to impress the cashiers at Mervyns' early-bird special?

Any response would be appreciated. - Tom MacRae, Peoria

Here is your reply, fuckwit extraordinaire.

Flyby honored fallen comrade

Jun. 28, 2005 12:00 AM

Regarding "A wake-up call from Luke's jets" (Letters, Thursday):

On June 15, at precisely 9:12 a.m., a perfectly timed four-ship of F-16s from the 63rd Fighter Squadron at Luke Air Force Base flew over the grave of Capt Jeremy Fresques.

Capt. Fresques was an Air Force officer who was previously stationed at Luke Air Force Base and was killed in Iraq on May 30, Memorial Day.

At 9 a.m. on June 15, his family and friends gathered at Sunland Memorial Park in Sun City to mourn the loss of a husband, son and friend.

Based on the letter writer's recount of the flyby, and because of the jet noise, I'm sure you didn't hear the 21-gun salute, the playing of taps, or my words to the widow and parents of Capt. Fresques as I gave them their son's flag on behalf of the president of the United States and all those veterans and servicemen and women who understand the sacrifices they have endured.

A four-ship flyby is a display of respect the Air Force pays to those who give their lives in defense of freedom. We are professional aviators and take our jobs seriously, and on June 15 what the letter writer witnessed was four officers lining up to pay their ultimate respects.

The letter writer asks, "Whom do we thank for the morning air show?"

The 56th Fighter Wing will call for you, and forward your thanks to the widow and parents of Capt. Fresques, and thank them for you, for it was in their honor that my pilots flew the most honorable formation of their lives.

Lt. Col. Scott Pleus
Luke Air Force Base
The writer is commander of the 63rd Fighter Squadron.
