2) It's part of a big scheme with TPTB to make the markets crash.. in this case the pharama companies... so they can put their hand in something else and put us all back into sheeple status.
serious note: good find sir
If you experience an erection lasting more than 4 hours after taking Whizzbang, wake up! They are sugar pills! Who gets an erection from taking sugar pills? What are you nuts? These don't do that. These are for replacing artificial sweeteners in your coffee. Didn't you read the description on the label?
