I was visiting my neighbor this morn. The TV was tuned to one of those moronic morning talk shows. The last guest was an "efficiency expert" who
warned in a phony, overly-dramatic voice that "The New Year is coming soon. Let's get a head-start on our plans and goals. FIRST, let's get
ORGANIZED!" She then explained that we should prioritize our tasks and do the most important things first. A bonus pearl of wisdom:
If a task seems overwhelming, break it down into several smaller tasks, and presto!...it will be easier!
The host commented on how this efficiency genius had written a couple books! WOW!
This stuff is a comedic genre in and of itself.
Being smart-asses, my neighbor and I fired up the laptops and searched out a few online instructional "how to do it" lists. We were trying to find

One that came up quickly was "How to make your house smell great". I kid you not...one of the first tips was: If something stinks, get rid of

I don't know whether to laugh or to cry when I realize that the majority of the population needs to be told that a toy Harry Potter broom doesn't
THe product disclaimers are simply about indemnification. No one is really that stupid....but you can get rich arguing you are that stupid in
The other stuff....im not shocked. People really are dumb, and even worse....written content is put together without even thinking. On the internet
you put up content, let people click in, then you cash in on the ad revenue. That doesn't encourage solid quality content, as people will click into
all sorts of really, really stupid stuff while scrolling through Facebook.
