    Vincent- I hope to hear you say that, (perhaps because someone in some
    position of authority and not in any position of expertise made you),
    you've done some research or analysis of so-called 'subliminal' effects,
    and found those claims bogus.

    Not that there is not a very interesting set of studies about 'under'
    perceptions, but, to my knowledge, all claims of 'subliminal'
    advertising or learning are shams.
