Actually, there are many magic videos out there with NO secrets on them and I think that many, many people think they are of great value: For example, videos on presentation (to continue to flog that horse!), performance-only videos (of people like Slydini, Vernon, etc.), or "how-to" videos (on how to make such-and-such, or how to raise doves, rabbits, etc.). And part two: Suppose I buy a video for $40 and sell it for $20. That's not the same as a refund! You mean I can't do that? To continue your analogy, what if I order a "fancy meal" and DON'T lick my plate clean but only eat a small bit because I have a complaint; am I justified in demanding my money back? If so, then how is that different from buying a magic video and, finding out that it teaches something that I can never use, reselling the video? Sorry, but -- as Fitzkee says -- there are no magic secrets that a person of average intelligence couldn't figure out, given the time and the will to do so. Videos, books, etc. simply shorten that time. They, themselves, are not the "grand repository" of secrets. [/quote]
