    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!

    Nice.

    $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…

    $77

    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.
