    There is a reason why there are high paying marketing jobs in corporate marketing departments, thinking up this s*** ... because ... wait for it ... it works so well on the typical gullible consumer.

    The TV and internet are not there for your information and entertainment. They are there for advertising.

    Like the man once said - you're not the consumer, you're the product.

    Human beings claimed to be charmed by beauty, serenity, and all that. But if so, why do we focus so much of our attention on things such as the image above? I gotta know, was the car filled with teenaged girls, or was it an old man? How does this help you plan your life, one way or another?

    Advertisers, I think, delve deep into the crappiest parts of the human mind and spirit. Next time you meet an attorney and an advertising executive at a party, toss your drink on the latter. Not the former. The attorney has to investigate all this stuff, just like the man in blue is doing here. That's our job. When the deviant advertiser goes certain wretched places, she or he does so freely and without duty. Or honor.

    How about those ads that are technically true, but try to throw you off the bad stuff? Yes, a lot of fat is not good for you, and a York peppermint patty is a "fat free food" as they advertise. It is fat free because it is 99% sugar, which is also not good for you.
