Not Real. Please. Not Real.

Please tell me that this Wonderful Life thing is a made-for-Internet-event like LonelyGirl15, not something real. It's got to be. Got to be.

Wonderful Life is a daily regimen involving a powerful and organic oral supplement and a spiritually based ritual practice.

… The Wonderful Life daily practice is based on a combination of vinyasa yoga, ancient Siberian folk song and dance, and contemporary extreme walking.

Is Wonderful Life safe?

Wonderful Life is 100% safe because it is 100% organic and herbal.

Are there any side effects?

In the first two weeks of use, those following the Wonderful Life regimen experienced fatigue, delirium, vivid dreaming and sleep walking. In the third week, people experienced short bouts of mania. People following the Wonderful Life regimen should not operate vehicles or heavy machinery in the first 21 days of use. During the forth through sixth weeks, most people experienced a waning of side effects as the benefits of the regimen began to take root.

Some people taking the Wonderful Life supplement continued to experience mania, combined with delusions of grandeur, hyperhidrosis and hallucinations. In these cases, once the use of the supplement had been discontinued, these people returned to a normal resting state within 72 hours. The presence of these side effects occurred in only 15% of Wonderful Life testers.

Less than 2% of people following the Wonderful Life regimen experienced seizures and migraine-like headaches after six months of use. It is recommended that people following the Wonderful Life regimen discontinue use of this product after 120 days to avoid serious injury.

  1. Sounds like a parody of the drug commercials I see on TV all the time.

  2. You had to read past “… a combination of vinyasa yoga, ancient Siberian folk song …”?

    “Deep underneath the snow and ice of the Taimyr Peninsula in the Siberian tundra, preserved in large, permeable rocks called “dry aquifers,” artesian plants thousands of years old have been discovered.” Thousands of year old plants? Pictures depicts undergrounds plants as green without the benefit of sunlight (and therefore no photosynthesis)? This has to be a joke.

    Same signs in the women’s room and I had the same reaction. Talking toilet paper?? It’s like a bad parody of some musical comedy routine.
    But at least the law school is not — and the wellness center no longer is — having signs posted on the inside door of the stalls with changing messages. Wellness used it for “good for you” messages such as healthy eating; other places sold it as ad space.
    Whatever the scope is of “privacy of place” it should include toilets. And I would extend the “leave this space alone” rule to the notices of events around campus that eager-beaver work study students (I assume) post on the stall doors. If I’m desperate for bathroom reading material, I’ll bring my own.

    The bottom of the page states Design by Liz Filardi. Elizabeth Filardi has a website: elizabethfilardi.com. She is an MFA candidate. Her website has a section on her work. It includes this item on Wonderful Life:

    Wonderful Life Daily is the product site for a new health regimen that promises clients will discover the meaning of life in just six weeks of use. As a social media marketing campaign, the company has hired two regular people to follow the regimen and blog about their own 6-week transformations. But the campaign goes sour when the bloggers, empowered by their new web communities, become disillusioned with the product and revolt. Viewers are only able to watch and understand this web narrative by being a part of the Wonderful Life network– following the characters’ blogs, watching their videos on the Vimeo community group, and becoming their friends on facebook. The project is finally documented through a narrative series of screen captures that exemplify the depth of the Wonderful Life network and the social investments and intimacy of its’ unassuming members.
