10:13 pm: The thing with magic and homeopathic stuff in general is that you have to be wary and avoid imposters.

I just found this book in my library, about how to build supposedly magical amulets. It's definitely hilarious... I mean, how am I supposed to get Zapdos blood (guess I've got to mention that line to Steve!), or crush a Moon Stone into powder without using a machine? And, using ingredients like blood and spit to make perfumes to soak the amulets with? Something tells me that stuff doesn't actually smell very good...

Also, the fake prayers you have to "consecrate" the amulets with. I could write crappy ancient-sounding poetry like that myself, I bet.

Current Mood: amusedamused

Moonstone powder can be made by hand, it just takes a while. You could get a Machamp to do it!

I'm guessing this book also requires ingredients from stuff that said Pokemon doesn't have (i.e. the hair of a Machop, a Vile plume's tail)

This also reminds me of a news article I read awhile back about Brazilian medical textbooks being recalled, because amongst other things, they showed men with ovaries.

"Men with ovaries"? They have pictures of Kazuhiko in there? XD

You should totally go into the fake magic business. You'd make a fortune, especially since you've got the whole psychic powers thing going on.

Eh? Why should I be interested in *fake* magic? I'm not that cheap, and I like to think of myself as an honest person, or at least somebody who has a great sense of self-respect.

That's why I'm perfectly content with, you know, reading tarot, levitating small objects and, most importantly, bending spoons. Imposters, I scoff at.
