I always thought this was bogus. I never met a smart jellyfish. This stuff is being targeted toward seniors and is more snake oil than fish oil.

Might be something to it, I never met a jellyfish that couldn't remember where they were going.

Hundreds of seniors have washed up on beaches across the U.S. after taking this.

Wife takes this. Hmm, might explain why every time we kiss it stings.

There are tons of bogus supplements out there.

Just listen the typical AM radio infomercial on a Saturday morning:

The script:

-they "discover" a dietary need that you're not getting from food
-if you take their stuff, you'll benefit from a list of "feel good" responses
-they will replay "testimonials" from previous customers or actors
-they never present an objective, double blind scientific study to prove their claims
-that stuff you buy at Wal-Mart is NOT equivalent; only their "potent, pure" version works
-they will offer a "free" sample if you just give them your credit card information to pay a small fee for shipping
-then they will start shipping you a supply that will cost about $30-$60 per month each month without your permission
-when you call their customer service to complain that you never agreed to order the stuff, they will not answer the phone
-you will go through hell with your credit card company to stop those recurrent charges

rinse, repeat

I've never met a jellyfish that had any idea of where they were going, much less any control over it either. They pretty much go where the ocean currents take them.

Apparently a lot of people are like that, too.
