The woo is strong with this one.

Cross marketing with goop.

Great, now you can get malware infested connected devices with your woo. Truly we live in the 21st century.

I have been wondering about this ever since I started to see things like this for sale several years ago - why Himalayan salt? Why not rock salt from some other salt mine?

Himalayan salt is higher in midichlorians.

Boingboing trying to make a buck by selling snake oil bullshit to their readers. Pseudoscientific exploitation. I will use their services less as a result.

How did I make it this far without a $200 smart salt lamp?


#8

Can’t tell if this is a joke or not.

Contains all-natural Eastern mystic bollocks, yeti auras and a 1000% markup.

Mmmmm, I can feel the negative ions of the Himalayan spirits flowing through m…fuck, wait, that’s not Himalayan spirits, that’s a botnet!


#12

Easier to rape the environment and get cheap labor + big mountain mysticism. “Arizona rock salt lamp” doesn’t evoke the same mumbo-jumbo.

Does it also blockchain? /s


#15

It’s smart so of course it does once the hackers get a hold of it. It’ll DDOS too for no additional charge!

Can’t tell if this is a joke or not.

It’s definitely a joke; the question is whether it’s intentional or not.
