    Like Mark i have also sinned in a past life. Anyone else get this one?

    In my inbox this AM from Prof Rothbart.

    I have questions.

    1. Why, in the 6 months, did the vectometer and the laptop stay in the exact same position.

    2. Why are the shadows exactly the same for both sets of feet.

    3. How does this fit with published research such as
    And the Payne / Zammit study which show that orthotics have either no effect or a benificial effect on muscle strength.

    Regards
    Robert

    I am not on his email list, so did not get it. He really is turning into a serial spammer. I just do not understand why anyone would go out of their way to open themselves to being ridiculed.

    Oh Robert, Oh Robert, Oh Robert (and you too Sam) ....you can NOT keep running scams like this. You know as well as I do that it was not really the orthotic did this .... it was the dodgy light settings on your cameras you used for the follow up photos! ... we all know that trick. And, besides, it also probably just they way they are holding their mouths (we learnt that trick from Marks's thread)
     
  7. Thats a deeply suspicious mind you have there Craig:rolleyes:. I have heard that the camera adds 10 years. Or in sams picture knocks of 70 lbs.

    But what about this? This was his dog before
