So someone went out to prove the obvious ?  This is one of the biggest "duh's" I've seen in a long, long time.

Madison Avenue is the enemy of society and happiness.  Has been in my lifetime anyway.  

Madison Avenue mentality. This perspective suggests that anything is right if the public can be made to see it as right.

The sheeples mentality ... yes, it is real.  The Smart Phone is your shepherd that leads you into the valley of temptation, misery and dependency ...

To wit, the current panic over global warming ...

But nothing new, just apparently long forgotten, even though it has been immortalized in iconic music of my generation.

"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"  1965

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm drivin' in my car
And a man comes on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination

I can't get no
Oh no no no
Hey hey hey
That's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm watchin' my TV
And a man comes on and tells me
How white my shirts can be
But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me

I can't get no
Oh no no no
Hey hey hey
That's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no girl reaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm ridin' round the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
And I'm tryin' to make some girl
Who tells me baby better come back maybe next week
'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak

I can't get no
Oh no no no
Hey hey hey
That's what I say

I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction
No satisfaction, I can't get no

and then ...

"Pleasant Valley Sunday"  1967

The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
Serenade the weekend squire, who just came out to mow his lawn

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems to care

See Mrs. Gray she's proud today because her roses are in bloom
Mr. Green he's so serene, He's got a t.v. in every room

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don't understand

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul and make it hard for me to see
My thoughts all seem to stray, to places far away
I need a change of scenery

Ta Ta Ta...

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday...

Fait accompli ... the world ends in 12 11 years ... {#Sleep}

About 20 years ago, Motley Fool was sort of interesting and had people appearing on Marketplace and news shows. Then I guess they figured out where the real money is.

Yeah, that's a little peculiar/head-scratchy.  It seems like breathing may be one problem.  What's with that background music?  I've noticed very similar sounds on a lot of videos.  There was a lot of nerdy/cool background music in the 1950s-1970s PSAs and ads but the stuff now is horrible.

Scrolling thru to find out what the bump was all about, I ran across this post from 7 years ago. Apparently, the wikipedia entry for oatmeal is a popular one to vandalize. I didn't go back far enough to find that version of it, but here are a few, the vandalism is usually in the first section:
 
Oatmeal is chocolate


Oatmeal is made of tuna fish and split pea soup

You say that like it is a bad thing.  I would like to think that MLK content of character point is implied to expand to all including gender.
