Foots pads again

Well it's been a week and I don't see any change in my toxicity. I also don't feel any different than I did a week ago. But man you should see the stuff that's come out of my colon! (Just kidding. That's not how these are supposed to work.) What makes it worse that these things don't appear to do anything but stink, is that it all seems like an elaborate practical joke. 

Have you ever used one of those awful glue traps to catch rats or mice? And have you ever accidentally stepped or put your hand in it? Well that's how sticky the pad that's supposed to glue the "magic" pad to your foot is. So every morning after removing the pads to see nothing special you have to wash the bottoms of your feet. And you better do it right away too. I made the mistake of taking the dog out to pee in between and ended up sticking to my sandals. (They would flip but refused to flop.) And did I mention this stuff stinks?

I'm going to finish this package and give a final report once I do. But it's looking like if you want to get rid of Thorium you're going to have to do it the old fashioned way, scoop it out with a wooden spoon. AND QUIT EATING THORIUM!

I swear I can see the Virgin Mary in the one on the left. Eek.

The right one is more of a rutabaga...

Looks like something out of the bad horror movies they make these days.

I like your blog so I'm going to give you a little advice and hope you understand what I'm saying: You really, really don't want to screw with the Thorium Lobby. Just trust me on this one...trust me.

I'm assuming that you've seen the posts where they dissect the pads. On the plus side, when this thing gets taken off the market, you'll probably get a few bucks in the class action suit :)

Sorry my dear but that looks absolutely vile :)
Couldnt you just have a cup of green tea or something? Seems much easier in the long run :)

About the glue trap... well my dog got stuck to it because there was a piece of bacon on it... he always had an appetite... :) And it got stuck right next to his nose so he was flapping with it.. well you get the idea... it took ages to unglue it and whatnot... thank God he was ok afterwards...
so word of advice keep the sticky pads away from the dog :)
Also if you want I can consult a friend of mine about detoxing and the rest... her whole family switched to macrobiotic diet when her mum was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was 15 years ago and she is fit as fiddle...
She is always making me eat these sprouty thingies and beans that are supposed to be good for liver and kidneys and what... if anyone knows how to detox properly she does. I'll ask her :)

My experience with "As Seen on TV" products: I bought the pancake maker - kind of a pan with an attached lid that you can flip upside down. My mother-in-law and I attempted it while making brunch the day after my wedding. It took us like 20 minutes to make one pancake. My MIL looked at me and said, "I don't want to hurt your feelings, but in the time it took us to make one pancake, I could have made 10 on the griddle." It was hilarious.

oh those look disgusting :(

Bethany James Leigh Shady said...

i can't wait for the box to be empty so you're no longer waving those stinky things in my face!

Miss Scarlett said...

Yeah well...if I knew what Thorium was I would swear off the stuff.

(I wrote my comment and lost it while posting, here it goes again, sorry if it duplicates)...

The very very very good news is that your body has all the mechanisms really needed to get rid of all the waste and toxins it produces. So you don't really need any other form of purification or detoxification.

What it sounds like to me is that you are starting to care more about your health. My recommendation is take small small steps (and no need for nasty cottage cheese either!), the green tea the other commenter was suggesting is probabley a very good idea. Also drink more water, those kidneys will do the rest of the work for you.

GROSSS!!! lol

I showed those to my sister, I had never heard of them until your blog but she apparantly knew all about them.

You know...just eat a lot of prunes and drink a lot of water...that will get anything out of your system toxic or otherwise.

Joey Polanski said...

Lets jus be glad that no ones evr suggestd that toxins coud be drawn out by stickin one o them pads right on th moosh.

re: prunes..

prunes are the way to go if you need a quick "bowel release." when ever i have issue, i pop open a can of prune juice and usually within minutes.. issue is resolved. not good for public spaces, tho.

or white pants.

Sawyers said...

Totally off topic Jorge, and don't know if anyone's seen it yet, but I found the responses hysterical! ;)

Topic: Saw Hurley at Bookstore...

Boomer and his mom Carol said...

They kind of look like something my cat would throw up...

Unknown said...

You should list the left one on eBay as "Detoxifying Foot Pad With Apparition of the Virgin Mary" and list the other one as "Authentic Jorge Garcia Hurley from Lost Toxins in Foot Pad" and see which one sells for more...

twisby said...

When I started reading this blog it was because I love you on LOST... but somehow you have also tapped into my one true blog love: people talking about their detox stories. I'm really not kidding. Next you should try "the grape cure" because I'm interested to see if that works. I'm too lazy/poor to do any of this shit myself.

I finally watched last week's episode of LOST yesterday, and then I immediately watched it two more times. That beautiful Naveen... how can you work with him and not turn gay? Haaaaa :)

elainemarieg said...

The comments here are as funny as your blogs.

After you eat food in Hawaii for awhile, maybe it'll get all of that buttery cheesy Wisconsin food out of your system.

eduardesky said...

nice, sticky shit in my foot, thats the way I want to start my day....

Lynn Faruque said...

What the heck is Thorium?

Anonymous said...

I wanna try doing that thing with my feet.

It's disgusting, but you probably should feel great after a while.

stormko said...

Coincidentally, I just saw a show today that covered those pads. Not only did they say that the pads are fake (big surprise), but there is vinegar in the pads. That's why they stink and that's why the pads turn dark. Sweat from your skin interacts with the vinegar and turns dark.

3goodrats said...

Those things look inhumane...inhumane like glue traps. Just sayin'.

Anonymous said...

You are so hilarious! I wondered if those things had worked. I always see them late on the tele and I wonder "hmm, should I waste the money and find out?" But, luckily, I have found your blog. Thank you sir.

Jen said...

Oh. My. Dear. Hilarious.

SpOOky (Mark) said...

More Skulls ;)

Sonia said...

I read that they are just a practical joke... they contain a granular substance that turns black when in contact with water... different pads are supposed to have different concentrations of this granular substance, hence having different shades of black... etc. Sorry that you had to pay money for it :(

By the way... I LOVE your blog so much :) just wanted you to know that

Sonia said...

DUDE! No more footpads! this is another study that says this stuff is TOXIC for you!


islandgirl4ever2 said...

I used the same type of product a few years ago and my foot pads looked darker than yours!! It's just funky that you can see something on the pads when you take them off... :)

Nicole said...

Oh feck I used to use those things...they stink!

And your feet are all sticky and smelly in the morning after using them... ewwwww

Mama said...

Make sure you check out 20/20's report on those foot pads... http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Stossel/story?id=4636224&page=1

I've done them before too...they feel so gross...kind of "soupy" .. I was more than happy to give em the old heave ho after seeing this!

Momof4 said...

LOL w/ tears in my eyes. I have 4 kids age 6 (barely) and under & homeschool w/ them. Your blog has become one of my daily escapes. Thanks for giving me some fun.
