    what did that answer? :rofl:

    it's probably all psychological. I've been taking 1000mg for a pretty long time and don't know what it's doing.

    to me, doesn't really matter if it's psychological. physiological or psych, if it "works," by all means...

    when i was a kid, my lil sis was terrified of dogs, so i gave her these little beads and told her they were special and that if she threw them at a dog she was scared of, it would back off... and she stopped getting scared

    but then again, it would have been pretty bad if she had thrown them at a pitbull and gotten mauled...
