- "Remember, thou art mortal."memento moroni
- "Remember, thou art a dumbass."
A few weeks ago, I was going through a training class at work, and, as the class ran later than the buses, I had to bug one of my classmates for rides home.
Said classmate shall remain nameless, but he was friendly, generous, pleasant to talk to, and seemingly rather intelligent.
I say "seemingly" because on one ride he was making a sharp left, and I happened to glance at his wrist at the top of the steering wheel, and saw he was wearing a Power Balance
For those of you who may not be familiar with Power Balance (and who are too lazy to click that link and skim the Wikipedia article), it's basically a scam placebo that two minutes' research or common sense would reveal as a waste of money.
It got me thinking - are there any Power Balances in my life? Have I been displaying any particularly moronic behaviours that people are too polite or I'm too dense to have pointed out to me?
