Tanita BC1000 Body Composition Scale with ANT + Wi&hellip by Tanita

Don't buy this unless you already have a compatible Garmin product. It's useless on its own.

I do have one, so will my husband (he has a Garmin but it's not compatible). It was simple to set up and seems to be reasonably accurate - my weight and body fat are about the same as on our other scale. It shows my bone mass as only 2.4kg, and as I don't have osteoporosis, I'm going to assume that's just based on some weird algorithm and ignore it.

So, it's not a fantastic scale, BUT the one big advantage is the connectivity with a Garmin product. You can collect all your weight data along with your activities in your Garmin connect account and see how your body is changing as… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Works for Christians, but what about everyone else?, 14 Oct 2012
I have extensively tested this product by hanging around the local A&E department and surreptitiously placing it on various injured and sick people. I can report the following:

Leprosy, possession by evil spirits and death - 100% success rate.
Unconsciousness - the patient stayed unconscious but after I said a few Hail Mary's he was a much better colour.
Broken limbs - I only had to show the patient the plaster and she got up and walked away. It was a miracle.
Small crying children - usually try to eat the plaster, but if I give them some of mother's Holy Water, that makes them stop.

These results are promising, but I've had a lot of time to think since… Read more
Penetrating Wagner's "Ring" (Da Capo Paperback) by John L. DiGaetani
10 of 11 people found the following review helpful
It's rare a book lives up to the hype, but this volume is worth every penny. I could spend hours listing its many qualities but the cover alone justifies the purchase. Where else could you find Gandalf, Mark Pickford and Darth Vader all together, all at once? And if that doesn't tell you enough about the kind of art of which Wagner was capable, their expressions as they get their first glimpse of his Ring, fresh from it's cycle, tells you everything you need to know.

A perfect gift, especially for eldery relatives or the very young.
