A Korean professor, of what I did not know, has been selling a device that supposedly turned tap water into holy water. This holy water supposedly had some kind of medicinal property. According to the BBC, it looks like he may be going to jail for fraud. That’s a good thing. But what on earth were his over 5000 costumers thinking? Oh yeah, they had faith, in this case faith in the water from Lourdes. They were able to figure out that giving Prof Kim about $250 to was cheaper than going to France.
The man, named as Prof Kim, claimed he could digitally capture the elements of holy water from Lourdes, France, that believers say has healing powers.
He had sold devices to more than 5,000 people, making almost 1.7bn won ($1.3m, £870,000).
. . .
The police also said that the people who had bought the devices had complained when they did not work.
Really?? The devices didn’t work!
