: ANY IDEAS?
: samantha

Sure, I've got an idea: RUN. RUN LIKE THE WIND.

First, look at page 3's "Trends" comments about their 100% natural
henna:


Trends : Remarkably favorable due to no side effects.
(from http://www.mehndi.biz/_wsn/page3.html)

Works for me, so far... Now take a look at page 4. (Link below)

Notice anything curious? Tell me what's wrong with this phrase found
describing their colored henna:


It is obtained by mixing the natural henna
powder with some of the internationally
accepted chemicals that have either no side
effects or very low side effects.
(from http://www.mehndi.biz/_wsn/page4.html)


Catch that? Compared to DEATH, I suppose, having a huge burning,
peeling spot on your skin that will leave a nasty scar could be
construed as a "low side effect." (Better than a poke in the arm
with a sharp stick?) And what's "internationally accepted" is the
understanding that their innocuous-sounding chemical causes
atrocious and often permanent damage when applied to skin.


Keep your eyes on their site for when they start marketing Russian
Roulette as a 75% fatality-free game when played with four people.
