The Phantom Of The Opera

For many American film lovers, it is 1925's The Phantom of the Opera that defines horror in the silent film era. Lon Chaney's Erik may not have modern moviegoers fainting as legend says they did when Christine reveals his deformed skeleton-like face, but there's no doubt he holds a special place in horror fans' hearts to this day. The Phantom Of The Opera Synopsis - Spoilers Included The new owners of the Paris Opera House refuse to believe the previous owners' warnings about the holder of box 5--a "phantom of the opera"--even though the phantom's presence is well-known and openly discussed among the opera's performers. The mysterious phantom has eyes that are just "ghastly beads", compared to holes in a grinning skull, explains stagehand Joseph Boquet, who claims to have actually seen the phantom. Over that skull, he continues, is stretched tight yellow skin with only two large holes where his nose should be. Meanwhile, the opera's

Miracle Honey For Men Is Just Another Trashy Supplement

USA LESS is being forced to recall its entire distribution of its Turkish-made LEOPARD Miracle Honey “supplement”, due to contamination with a pharmaceutical drug.

LEOPARD Miracle Honey turns out to be far less miraculous than its peddlers claim. This “natural” men’s supplement is actually adulterated with sildenafil.

In its press release about the recall the company admits that tests run by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, uncovered the presence of sildenafil hidden away in the supposedly “natural” product. Sildenafil, as you probably know, is a prescription-only medication prescribed to men suffering from erectile dysfunction.

The finding of sildenafil in LEOPARD Miracle Honey makes it, from the FDA’s point of view, an unapproved drug.

But the product worries doctors for another reason. Men who know they should not take medications like Viagra or Cialis could turn to “supplements” like this one, believing them to be safer, natural remedies. in fact, the presence of sildenafil means that any consumer taking medications for conditions like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol or heart disease could experience the same life-threatening drop in blood pressure that men who are prescribed ED medications are warned about.

As of March 22, 2019 USA LESS says it has not received any reports of anyone being sickened or injured by the supplement.

If you think you might still have some of the recalled product on hand, look for a 12-count wooden box labeled as:
  • LEOPARD Miracle Honey with UPC CODE 8 699415 910534
All lot numbers are affected by this recall. You should return your supply to: USA LESS, PO Box 250-138, BROOKLYN, NY 11225.

USA LESS says it is in the process of notifying its customers & consumers thru e-mail. It has not, however, posted the recall notice to its website,, as of April 08, 2019. (I was actually still able to add the product to an online shopping cart.)

Nor has it, as far as I can see, shared news of the recall on any of its linked social media pages.
