If you think that is gross...

Tooling around the internet looking for stuff on the foot pads I found this page.
http://www.publichealthforums.com/kinoki.asp

Wow! Am I to believe that this stuff came out of that woman's bowels? It looks like one of those frozen mummies.
Does she chew her food or swallow it whole? Is that cauliflower?

Do you think her friend had to request to be taken out of the picture? Probably because people thought it was HER'S?

Do you think her claim to be from Dalas, Texas [sic] was intentional so she'd be harder to track down?

I work in the health field and I even think that is disgusting. How can she be happy with those results? If I saw that in a toilet I would think something died up in there and came out. Maybe the product forms massive parasitic worms and then kills them. LOL

Me from Brokenglish said...

It seems real for me. I've seen worse.

OMG GROSS!! hehe

Course it's no worse than those infomercials that come on late at night where they talk about it for a half hour.

oh man, lunch is ruined... hehe

Public Aversion said...

I haven't laughed so hard in a week. It looks like a skeleton of some sort of reptilian marine creature crawled out of her intestines. And she recommends going through 6 months of pooping out godzilla babies???

Whatever happened to drinking a lot of water and eating some prunes? Is there some sort of secret compartment in my bowels that these creatures of the deep can hide in?

scoutpost said...

That is so gross, and I have a medical background too. It does look like a skeleton of some kind of creature, or like she had some kind of alien creature in her bowels. Maybe that is why she was feeling so bad, she had an alien parasite in her body. Yuck!
And worst of all, she's proud of it!

Avinash said...

Well, I'm scarred for life.

Joshua said...

Oh, goodness.

Guys, this is a really common scam. The cleanser stuff is what causes the icky crap to appear in your... uh... crap. The results look nothing like any sort of real "toxins" (most of which wouldn't be visible anyway!) or parasites. And if you look at the ingredients, they're actually known to create clumpy weirdness by themselves. So they're not pulling anything out of your body, they just create the appearance of doing so.

Since I can see this is getting serious, I'll have to break out the link-o-matic:

This one's about the Kinoki footbaths (the electrolysis ones I mentioned in your post about the pads): http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2007/08/your_friday_dose_of_woo_a_soothing_footb.php
This is about foot pads (not sure if they're the same brand, but probably): http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2006/10/your_friday_dose_of_woo_these_boots_were_1.php
And this is about liver flushes: http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2006/07/your_friday_dose_of_woo_would_you_like_a.php

"Orac", in addition to being a really obscure reference to British sci fi TV, is a genuine medical doctor. But you don't even have to trust him, because he's usually good about giving references for his statements, as well as links to other debunkings of the same stuff. I encourage you to read up. I mean, the stuff probably won't harm you, but it sucks to fall for a scam.

Tyler said...

Gosh...that was fairly harsh. That's right up there at Goatze level for me.

FETTS said...

Now I'm hungry for beef jerky!

Rachel said...

You think she could have gotten a little further away from the toilet or at least cropped out the yellow "substance" in the background...geez louise!

kookiejar said...

Man, that stuff was so powerful, her friend SUPERNOVA-ED!! That's amazing.

redelf said...

Even grosser dude.

I would say just fast for a day and drink some herbal tea!! Stay away from something that makes things like that come out of you. Its like an Alien!!!!

Erica said...

Capcom said...

OMG!!! You guys are all so killing me, I'm laughing so hard that I can hardly breath!!!! I'd better get rid of this gum.

Whoodathunk that scatalogical reparte could be so funny. Jorge, you are the funniest, and all the commenters here, the second funniest. Oh my sides. :-D

Deneph said...

The responses are so glowing but I think I'm going to pass on viewing this picture. It sounds like something you automatically wish you could unsee.
Cauliflower, jerky, yellow substance...bleh!

SpiderWomanKnits said...

Hi! I'm new to your blog. I'm totally cracking up right now. This is hilarious but yet so completely disgusting at the same time. I almost can't deal. What IS that thing?!!

maven said...

I don't know anyone else who can talk about such gross stuff, and still make it interesting and funny! You're always entertaining, Jorge! And thanks for showing us what a great guy you are.

At least you're our guinea pig! LOL

Hoku said...

ahhhh ha ha ha urp oops!

I neve shouda looked ahhhhhh!

I agree with Public Aversion: its a baby from the movie Humanoids from the Deep!! (great B flick by the way)

Hoku said...

A little off subject, Jorge, have you ever tried those Japanese drops that remove your personal toilet odor? They sell them at Longs and they do work! Everyone at work uses them-even the guys. They come in a one ounce bottle with Japanese writing on it. Here is also a Hawaiian made product that is similar and is the only one I know in english:

No, I don't have anything to do with the company, just recommending a great product that eliminates odor "when you drop the kids off" while in a public bathroom LMAO.

Honeybell said...

Dude, why would you have me look at that? As dontcallmekatie said, I'm a nurse and have seen some nasty shite, but MAN! :p

Bianca said...

Gross Jorge! I was fine with your foot pads but the colon blow stuff made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

And I scrape crud off people's teeth for a living - still gross stuff but different ends...

rey carbono said...

this is yet!

Lissa101 said...

Okay, well, the disgusting diapers I saw today were nothing compared to this. Ewwwwwwwww, Jorge!

Just drink a lot of water and move on. Please!

Desmond_Pen said...

I'm afraid to look. lol

Palendromes said...

Hi Jorge!! I just wanted to drop in and tell you how funny your blog is!
I stumbled across it while i was checking out lost info online. I know you can't reveal ANYTHING about the show (Trust me, if i thought you could, i would ask :), i have at least a dozen questions on my mind right now, haha), but i wanted to tell you how much i love your show. I haven't ever followed a TV show like this before, it is the only show i watch on tv. I even tape the episodes so i can watch them multiple times lol. My sister and I watch LOST every thursday and you have always been our favorite! You have such a complex character and also add comic relief!! Good luck with everything and i cannot wait to watch and see how things play out! :)

Fat Lazy Guy said...

It's like someone swallowed the monster from the Island, and it came out in condensed, faecal form. I'm not a religious man, but I would be praying for the death of whoever put that crime against nature in my intestines.

bertas said...

Jorge honestly, I didnt even have my coffee... tsss
I did read an article a while back in Details I think when the guy went on a 7 day fast... he couldnt eat anything, the only thing that was allowed was warmish water with maple syrup and/or lemon juice?! Anyhow after 3 days you are supposed to take warmish water with a teaspoon of sea salt... and he wrote he thought nothing would ahem come out after 3 days of fast, but surprisingly when it did hit the spot 30 minutes later he was on the toilet for 45 minutes... :)
My weight was never much of an issue, but after the Christmas period and all that food I started with the new regime of 2 - 3 liters of water every day... sure you pee a lot, but I feel much better :)

Miss Scarlett said...

I'm not sure what I was expecting - the title was warning enough.

But I still looked and oh my god that is so sick!

My cat barfs up stuff like that - minus the 'yellow substance'.

And dear god I hope that chopstick/knitting needle was burned after taking that photo!

Feeling a little queasy...

oh pook said...

OMGosh!!! I'm laughing so hard at these comments, but I can't bring myself to actually click the link!
Jorge, is this in response to not eating a vegetable while in Milwaukee?

Eileen said...

I'm a nurse and I say-
1- thats fake
2- yuck

Wanna see real crap? Here's a tiny example of what was in my mailbox this morning:

Subject:
Detox Your Sex Life

Subject:
Giant Gas Giveaway!

Subject: drunkbeaveradultsearchengine implied nude photo

Subject:
What's Your Sex Style?


Subject:

Subject:

Subject:

Subject:

Subject:
The Gal's Guide to Her Guy's Equipment


My only other comments are- if a gal needs a guide to her guy's equipment, maybe she shouldn't be hanging around men.

Drunk Beaver is a porn search. Why do they need to IMPLY nude photos?

Can I really work at home for $500/day? I think it must involve sex with strangers.
(And that doesn't sound nearly as cool to girls as it probably does to guys!)

Some day I'm gonna check all this stuff out. Probably the same day I start drinking heavily.

:-)

eduardesky said...

I've that into my body!!??
take me that off!!!!!!

maven said...

Congratulations, Jorge. I see you're #1 in this weeks Lost Fantasy League Celebrity List! The Lost Ninja is #2 right behind you! (On the other hand, I'm 1379! LOL)

max_jaybo said...

And that's supposed to make you WANT to buy it???

From appearances, I'd say it's either a stillborn chest-burster from Alien, or she swalloed five pounds of brown bubblegum before bed. *shudders*

Pam said...

After reading your take on the link and the commenter's, I think I'll just take your words for it. I'm sure it's icky on an epic scale, but I'll save myself the visual!

Natalie said...

umm, I hate to say it but my sister has used that colon cleanse before. she didn't get the lock ness monster out, but she told me some really small monsters made their escape. And, did you know that when dead people are "cleaned out" they really use some serious chemicals to get all the crap out. I often wonder what is lurking in the deep.

GJerome78 said...

Ick. That makes me feel sick. It looks like something that was pulled out of an old sewage pipe. If you want a good detox.. try this:
Detox action plan
# Begin your detox at the weekend or during a time when you don’t have too much going on.
# Walk for at least 15 minutes every day.
# Drink at least 2 liters of water a day – purified, distilled, filtered or bottled. You can also drink dandelion coffee or herb teas.
# Have ½ liter of fruit or vegetable juice – either carrot and apple juice (you can buy these two separately and combine with one-third water) with grated ginger, or fresh watermelon juice – a day. The flesh of the watermelon is high in beta-carotene and vitamin C. The seeds are high in vitamin E, as well as the antioxidant minerals zinc and selenium. You can make a great antioxidant cocktail by blending fresh fruit and seeds in a blender into a greast-tasting drink.
# Eat in abundance: Fruit – the most beneficial fruits with the highest deter potential include fresh apricots, all berries, cantaloupe melons, citrus fruits, kiwis, papayas, peaches, mangoes, melons, red grapes. Vegetables – especially good are artichokes, peppers, beetroot, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, red cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, kale, pumpkin, spinach, sweet potato, tomatoes, watercress and bean sprouts.
# Eat in moderation: Grain – brown rice, corn, millet, and quinoa – not more than two portions per day. Fish – salmon, mackerel, sardines, and tuna – not more than once a day. Oils – use extra-virgin olive oil for cooking and in place of butter, and cold-pressed seed oils for dressings. Nuts and seeds – a handful a day of raw, unsalted nuts and seeds should be included. Choose from almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds (linseeds).
# Avoid: All wheat products, all meat and dairy produce (including eggs), salt and any food containing it, hydrogenated (trans) fats, artificial sweeteners, food additives and preservatives, fried foods, spices, dried fruit. Limits potatoes to one portion every other day and bananas to one every other day.
# Don’t be surprised if you feel worse for a couple of day before you start to feel better. This is especially likely if you are eliminating foods to which you are dependant.
# Take a double dose daily of quality multivitamin/mineral supplements, plus two 1,000 mg vitamin C capsules and antioxidant complex.

Not that is it but is disgusting!! Hahaha
If really it wants to free to his body of toxins that drinks 2 liters of water a day, comma I recover and do exercise!! Work! :D

A greeting from Spain!!

Completely off topic, but...
The writers' strike is over!
The writers' strike is over!
So happy for them, so happy for us to get new episodes later this year. Last night I watched a Japanese game show for Human Tetris. My Tivo is lonely.

maven said...

Yea! The strike is over. Ausiello at TVGuide.com has an interview with Cuse and Lindelof saying they're looking at doing 5 episodes with 8 episodes of stuff in them (so as not to disappoint us fans and finish S4 the way they intended). And we're not losing 3 episodes. They will appear somewhere, sometime! However, there will be a 4 week break between the first 8 and the last 5.

Hey, Jorge...when are you going back to Hawaii?

Magic & Goofy said...

That looks like a bunch of broccolli inside muddy sheets knotted up! LOL...people are so funny.

D S said...

Did I upset someone with my post? It seems to have been deleted. Apologies all around if that happened.

E said...

Some things are meant to stay up your ass. Happily sitting there occasionally winking at you.

Greetings from the bleak UK.

keri marion said...

;)

gina said...

Did that woman eat a baby?

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
