The Gullible

So if you looked up the word Gullible it says, “easily persuaded to believe something; credulous.” So I looked up credulous and it said, “having or showing too great a readiness to believe things.”

I had an interesting conversation today and we were talking about these places that appear to prey on the Gullible. You know the drill.

You get dragged to a meeting where you hear a pitch.

Everyone can benefit from the product. It's super easy to join. It's even free.

You are encouraged to bring your friends.

If you want to become a member there are fees based on your level of dedication.

There are weekly meetings to attend and in some cases twice a week.

There are brainstorming session on how you can get the word out there and raise more money for the company.

If you are active enough and demonstrate dedication, you may get an advisory board.

Some people show up and swear the product works, while others don't attend weekly meetings and don't seem to be getting any results

Some people think the whole thing is a scam. The people pushing the product are just a bunch of snake oil salesmen trying to brainwash people

What company do you think I'm talking about? Amway? Advocare?

Now I’m Done – The Big Screen TV

LG Flat Screen TV

I have some friends who have giant TVs. Two years ago I bought a 32″ flat screen. Now when I go to their house and come home, my 32″ looks like a toy. So I decided to buy a bigger 1080 TV.

This lead to me asking about what is the difference between 1080 and 4K, then what was the difference between 4k and HDR?

Then the guy at Best Buy gave me a demo of both, and I could feel myself getting sucked in. I had found a cheaper TV but now I could feel myself talking myself into grabbing the credit card.

I ended up with a 55″ 4K HDR tv.

Then I brought it home. Uh Oh.

Then I went to plug it into my soundbar. Uh Oh.

Through the process of carrying these items from store to trunk to apartment, I pulled muscles in my back.

When I watch the Tonight Show, it feels like Jimmy Fallon is in my living room. My TV is just about the size of my couch.

 

A Hallmark Christmas

You must run do not walk to your television listing and find the Hallmark Channel. They are running the same movie (disguised with a different name) over and over.

There will be lots of crying as Christmas is almost ruined, then, in the end, you find in the nick of time that Yes, Yes, (cheesy storyline) is true!

It will start people like Shelly Long (remember her from Cheers), Angie Dickinson (isn't she dead) and lots of people from sitcoms that you watched in the 80's and 90's that kind find work anyplace else and have no integrity.
