Kansas City Floating Snake Oil

The greatest encyclopedia in the world tells us:

"An isolation tank, usually called a sensory deprivation tank (also known as float tank, flotation tank, or sensory attenuation tank) is a lightless, soundproof tank filled with salt water at skin temperature, in which individuals float. They were first used in 1954 to test the effects of sensory deprivation. Flotation tanks are widely advertised as a form of alternative medicine but beneficial health effects are unproven."

Here's a look at the locals pushing the practice . . .

^^^^^ Would you really know the difference? Just flush your head in the toilet bowl and see if you can mimic the same results.

$100/month to float in a bathtub.

I'll bet even in the tank you'd be able to hear the employees laughing their balls off at you.

I remember when Wo Fat put McGarret in a similar sensory deprivation tank as a means of torture to extract information. It didn't work.

They're also called "Germ Soup Tanks"!
