Leptovox + 1 FREE 7-DD Only $39.99

Diet pills continue to huge business on eBay and Leptovox is no exception. Of course, it is still less known than some of the other pills (such as those purported to contain hoodia gordonii), so it doesn't quite have its own category quite just yet. Given my long standing preference towards proper diet and exercise, I tend to find these a little (ahem) hard to swallow, but hey, if you just happen to have that much cash just burning a whole in your PayPal account...

Search Results for 'lingerie'

Is it just slightly disturbing that the key words "women's lingerie" actually has a few items available under the category "men's accessories"? I'm all about the don't-ask-don't-tell, but I guess in this day and age, the whole thing about going to that store and getting the thing in the plain brown paper bag is kind of rendered unnecessary with current technology. All hail the Internet.

Supplements are not exactly a "dime a dozen" on eBay, but they're certainly plentiful. But as always, do your research. So, when you have energy pills and the title of the auction has the word "amphetamine" it, DEFINITELY do your research.

I've already ragged repeatedly on hoodia gordonii products, but it looks like the main active ingredient in this, gugulipid (also known as Commiphora wightii) is another potential dud, as initial studies show promise, but the larger studies fail to show results. It's all caveat emptor here, folks.

Sure, everybody does it, but does that mean it's okay that you're essentially selling stolen property on eBay?

While standard practice dictates that hotels will immediately charge you for items taken from the mini-bar (some will do so, even if the items aren't consumed), so far, hotels aren't charging for commonly pilfered items such as silverware, towels, or toiletries. But, when hotel deals are going for relatively sane rates, it might be safe to assume that they're making enough money that they aren't going to charge you for stolen eating utensils.
