    How to See Clearly Underwater 

    Would you like to learn how to see 3x more clearly underwater with no gimmicks? Read on… Seriously…

    This morning I was diving in the pool when I started wondering why the heck we (humans) don’t see clearly under water. I started running through what I know… 800 times denser, refraction… Then it hit me I might be generalizing – Maybe I’m the only one that sees all blurry like shit underwater. So I whipped out the oracle (Google) and searched on why… Nice article by Prof Ron Douglass describes why in terms I barely understand, then mentions a tribe on “Sea Gypsies” called the Moken see real good and its a matter of training…

    Say What? And now you tell me? So I do some digging… Bumped into an article that looked like the modetherlode, but Elsevier wants me to pay and I think I’ve lost access to Athens (the research paper authentication thing). Google some more and I found the researcher, her thesis and doctoral papers… Her name is Anna Gislen at the Swedish university of Lund and her research is all there.

    Simply Amazing.

    I see potential for a full-blow as-seen-on-TV product here…

    NEW! See underwater clearly with the new Gislen Method! You’ll be the talk of the pool party! Chicks will blow you before they even tell you their names!

    $77 – The Magic Number 

    Doing some mild research… Scanning the HTML of some offer pages.

    First stop was Saj’s Zero Fricti0n Marketing, where I looked at the HTML and found this nugget right at the top:

    <!-- saved from url=(0052)http://www.rogerscopy.com/Saj/images/salespage2.html -->

    I decided to check out Rogerscopy and its the site of a copywriter. Quite a nice unintended endorsement from Saj – Now I know who might be good for copy-writing for a launch. Bookmarked.

    The other thing that caught my eye was a call to an off-site script:


    I moseyed over to “The Site Rush” and realized its another of Saj’s sites – no mysteries there, he isn’t hiding it. I got curious to see the price he put on this one…

    Its the magic number…


    Seventy-Seven is the LARGEST number (from 1 to 100) that is perceived as the SMALLEST number. I believe reference to this research is in Robert Cialdini’s latest book (“YES!”)- I remember reading it from a reputable source and checking up on the research – Its was legit. When it comes to prices and spending money, $77 is perceived as a smaller amount than even $76, and is the largest number that is perceived as the smallest.

    PS: This is the first post where I’m putting affiliate links. I’d suggest replacing with your own if you really want any of the stuff I ever mention, but if you just want to send me money, then by all means… Go for it. I followed NickyCakes advice and got an ID specifically for the blog – So no reversing.
