Never tried Red Bull except for their natural cola which is very good and has real cola nut in it instead of artificial flavors. I might have a problem with a class action suit over an obviously absurd and mainly metaphoric claim that "Red Bull gives you wings." Did Red Bull start the class action themselves. It might be cheaper to pay $13 million than more for an ad campaign.

When I "cut the cable" I got Hulu+ (first month free) to keep up with any broadcast TV shows worth watching. When I had cable I would DVR shows and then use the 30 second skip button to skip ads. With Hulu you get ads too but the breaks are usually shorter though ABC and FOX seem to be booking longer breaks there. There is no 30 skip button for Hulu+ so I just hit the mute button and don't watch. There's hardly anything there I would be interested in buying anyway. But turning the sound off makes the ads look even more insipid. I think the ad agencies need to turn the sound off just to realize how bad their ads are these days.

I didn't do the TM-Sidhi program to learn to fly. If it was just that well guess what? I was hopping before I got that sutra. A bunch of us who were being naughty and reading Muktananda's books at the time for some reason started hopping during meditations at home. So when I got the flying sutra it was merely time to "officially" fly. Bet there are a few others here who had the same experience. In fact the other person who flew immediately admitted to me that he had been hopping before the course.

Can we levitate. Probably (now some heads are going to start frittering). My tantra guru told me had floated saying he felt something odd and opened his eyes to find himself off the ground a bit and not using any specific sutra. There is the supernatural and there are things human beings don't understand yet. Oh and I'm no athlete and never felt any effort in flying even with several foot high hops.

Are you angry about the cash you lost chasing that dream of flying?

Do your friends and acquaintances now laugh at you for being so credulous?

Good news! You may be entitled to compensation.

Energy drink "Red Bull" settled two class-action lawsuits this week, agreeing to pay $13 million because their famous slogan 'Red Bull gives you wings' isn't true. Anyone who bought a drink from January 1, 2002 to October 3, 2014 is eligible to receive a $10 cash payment - regardless of whether there was a receipt for proof.

Here's one of the ads they ran. If people can now sue for such obviously idiotic claims it only goes to show what a dumbed-down society we are living in.
