    It's strange how these things affect the gullible.
    It's more strange that the gullible don't see through it.

    For instance, Koo Kien Keat (and TBH) won the All England MD when he was NOT wearing this type of scrap metal jewellery.

    Later, these adornments appeared on his person, possibly courtesy of the manufacturer and a hefty fee. And, save one ill-attended outing, it has been embarrassment all the way.

    Just last week, he was wearing one of these 'magical' things when he (and his partner) got butt-kicked out of the All England. Obviously, the opponents were wearing something stronger - perhaps Rottweiler dog-collars.

    It also didn't help that Koo Kien Keat & Tan Boon Heong were wielding 'Titanium' (Ti-10) racquets. Despite being empowered, shielded and generally rendered omnipotent by so much titanium, they got ass-whipped.

    Lee Chong Wei, another of these metal-wearers, was similarly shut out by Lin Dan who, unfairly enough, seems quite unaware of the great winning, healing and rejuvenating powers of Chong Wei's expensive trinkets.

    Someone should surreptitiously slip one of these Phiten fallacies around Lin Dan's neck. That's one surefire way of ensuring he loses at the Swiss Open (and maybe forever beyond) :eek:

    Really guys? Titanium?
    Havign read all/most comments, I mean, come on... What a crock...

    What's next? Magnets? Platinum? Maybe some good old heavy metals that are not completely inert, like Lead or Radium? Maybe that'll spice things up a bit;)

    I miss the good old days were superstitious folk just slaughtered some goats and looked at some stars...All this commercial-stuff is confusing

    Whenever I feel a bit down, I simply re-read this thread.
    So far, I have never been able to suppress my laughter :D

    well, it's funny in a weird a sense that gullible people spend serious money on something they must know is superstition.

    But in a way this titanium-healing campaign of mis-information also brings me down a lot. In the end it's no better than any other scam done by either self-deluded people or just plain evil people.
    In some extend it reminds me of those ground-up-rhino-horne scams, or the anti-cancer 'tablets' sold on the internet.

    Which reminds me. I wear a titanium watch but it didn't fit my sprained ankle. And Apple should have used titanium instead of aluminum. It will eliminate carpal tunnel syndrome and encourage better badminton.

    I've ordered a can of ground titanium which I'll sprinkle on my racquets and shoes. That will, in due course (if not instantly), turn me into the ultimate player - indefatigable, unbeatable, inimitable and immune to injury.

    Lin Dan, here I come :cool:

    funny how people think that by just wearing this kind of product, that player must not lost any match. by wearing this, the person won't become super power or iron man out there;)
    come on, the players are human too.
    no body is perfect in this world;)

    Everyone is free to wear whatever they want on their neck (or anywhere on their person) - be it spurious metal, seaweed, hemp nooses or king cobras.

    The problem lies with the claims that emerge subsequently about magical turnarounds, derived powers, miraculous healing and whatnot.

    I suggest you go back and read the various posts claiming such 'effects'.
    And, er, aren't you one of those sublimely blessed by one such thingy? :eek:
