Attention Farming

Self proclaimed weight loss expert Shamus Young claims to have developed a site layout technology that allows weight loss simply through browsing his website.

Twenty Sided > Attention Farming:

I am proud to announce that I have proven via a scientific study that reading Twenty-Sided encourages safe, effective weight loss after only a few visits. This is due to secret, proprietary methods of designing site layout that stimulates neuron activators in the upper lumbar that enhances your Circadian Rhythm and optimizes your metabolism via your browser cache. It's embedded in the CSS. It's all very scientific and complicated but trust me, this site will allow you to safely lose 10-20 unwanted pounds after just a few readings, as well as helping you to regrow lost hair. And make you more attractive to the opposite sex.

He claims scientific research but gives no sources. His wild claims appear to be nothing more than delusions of grandeur. It is my assumption that reading his website will in fact encourage "Gaming". Which has been proven by scientists of all ages to contribute to obesity (This does not include wii gaming).

This is an obvious charade to get people to link to his site and click on his ads. Do not link to this website. You will only encourage this "SPAM" like behavior in others.
