rka: basemetal: Hey, subbs, that tape may be useless, but when you have your nose all stopped up from a summer cold, those breathe right strips help a lot.

Behold the power of marketing and confirmation bias. You believed the ad, you spent the money, the last thing your delicate psyche wants to admit is that you were wrong. Happens all the time.


I wear them at night, I don't snore, my wife doesn't give me shiat. I don't wear them, I do snore, my wife complains for days. Thus, Breathe Right strips prevent women from complaining.

/imagine how many they'd sell if they adopted that slogan?
