It scares me that there might actually be people this stupid in the world.

There are. Footballers and the like who spend stupid ammounts of money on top end hi-fi and home cinema kit, who often assume that a large pricetag clearly means it's better.

But but it's "proprietary ultra premium" network cable!!! And for optimal performance, don't forget to have the electrons flowing in the direction of the arrows!

Yes, it's one of the saddest things I've seen a company advertise in a long while. El 'Reg covered it a bit back; it's still funny to reread the Amazon comments about it.

I love how they put extra shielding on a 1.5 meter cable.

Sadly there are really people out there who will hand-on-heart claim that they can tell the difference in the signal quality - even when the signal is digital! Emperor's New Clothes?
