OMG!!!! Beware the evil water

The video is about 10 minutes long and ends abruptly, but anyone with a basic understanding of chemistry (or anything, really) will be amused by this crap-filled video selling something to the ignorant.

My favorites: white copper sulfate and "only plants use inorganic minerals." There are many more.

There are a lot of blogs that address this type of thing (see Respectful Insolence for one high quality example). It is essentially, scam artists sucking money from the scientifically ignorant. I don't want to be that type of blog, but I couldn't pass this one up.

Isn't anhydrous copper sulfate white?

yes, but its hygroscopic nature would make its storage difficult.
