Reminds me of the "Amish Heater" claims.

Whenever I see these advertisements I remember two things-

The first thing is the first law of thermodynamics- "The first law of thermodynamics, an expression of the principle of conservation of energy, states that energy can be transformed (changed from one form to another), but cannot be created or destroyed." - In others words, don't expect to get something out of nothing.

The second thing I remember is somethgin W. C. Fields said- "It's morally wrong to allow a sucker to keep his money."
