I can't see the video on account of the paternalistic overlords exercising their right to be annoying dickheads, but I couldn't help noticing the garish colour scheme and giant fonts that seem to be a hallmark of this sort of site. Are there any psychologists on the list who could do some research into the correlation between crackpothood and a total lack of any aesthetic sense?

If you have the stomach for it, browse the woo-woo shelves in your local bookshop. The dominant colour motif consists of black, purple and gold leaf. Presumably, this combination is favoured by deities, aliens, workers of assorted magic and mystical beings alike.

And my personal favourite, rainbow transmission holographic colour.

I've known more than one web designer who proclaims that an appreciation of design in the general populace is ... lacking. Correlation is not causation folks. Bad design happens like wildfire and I know a couple of people with drinking problems because of it.

See here.

Note: I SUCK at design and I know it. But that is half the battle.
