[Shameless plug: Charity watch auction for Seiko Seiko SRPH55 Brown Sea Turtle goes till Friday, November 18, 12pm PT. Winning bid gets matched, and all proceeds go to givedirectly.org
[Disclaimer: EVERYTHING in this post is being said entirely tongue-in-cheek, solely to elicit laughs. I don’t take 90% of the crap coming out of my own mouth seriously, and neither should you!]
So, can you tell the difference between the GS SLGA015 and the GS SBGA463?
Wrong! You can’t! You know why? Because…
So, this brings up the obvious question: “Well, if they’re the same watch, why in the world did you buy both of them, @HotWatchChick69???”
And, my answer to this question is, “What’s wrong with you??? It would be insanity not to buy two identical watches!”
How do I explain this properly? Well, to get to the answer, we gotta take a detour and talk about literature first…
Literature, regulatory capture, virtue signaling, and social desirability bias
Now, if you make the mistake of going to college and taking seriously the utter drivel that is taught in “higher education,” the midwit culture that is the Ivy Tower will try to indoctrinate you into believing all sorts of obvious lies. For example, it will be made very clear that the pinnacle of excellence and culture resides in “The Classics," such as works by Bronte, Joyce, Marquez, and practically any Russian from the 1800’s. What a load of BS!!! I tried reading Anna Karenina once and couldn’t make it past the first 10 pages, without choking on the bodice-ripping melodrama. It was the harlequin romance novel of its day, published in serialized format, designed to extract every penny possible from a public starved for sex, drugs, and rock & roll. And, since it came out in the horribly repressed Victorian Era, it didn’t even have any good sex, no drugs worth mentioning, and certainly no Guns & Roses. But people ate it up, because back then this was as racy as you could get! I guess in the 19th Century, even this kind of dreck could give readers the tingles, whereas today you can get more titillation from looking at a department store catalogue.
To get through this novel, I had to resort to this…
… and even then it was a chore. Steam punk androids and laser battles interspersed throughout the storyline still couldn’t redeem this gelatinous, runny pile of dog poo!
If, on the other hand, you’re tempted by some Jane Austen, definitely pick up the following 2 novels - they were INCREDIBLE!
You wanna know the two primary reasons that we’re all subjected to the absolute worst crap in high falutin’ literature classes?
And this leads us, finally, to the title of this post, which comes from a truly illuminating episode of Jerry Springer.
Why Jerry Springer is the pinnacle of human art and science
Never has our great society been graced with such a brilliant and incisive investigation into the human soul, as the Jerry Springer Show. There is nothing else in this world that better helps us to see and understand unvarnished humanity, in all its resplendent glory, than the Jerry Springer Show. Again, the midwits will tell you to watch a production of Edward Albee or Anton Chekhov. No. That is just virtue signaling. Midwits will tell you to watch a documentary like “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” or “The Last Waltz.” No. That is just social desirability bias. If you truly want insight into human nature, there is nothing more illuminating, nothing more significant, and nothing more entertaining than the Jerry Springer Show.
And this episode of Jerry Springer helped me understand precisely why "It would be insanity not to buy two identical watches!” and convinced me to purchase the SLGA015 when I already owned the SBGA463.
There you go! I now live in a happy threesome with BOTH the SBGA463 and the SLGA015, even though they are identical twins, because this Jerry Springer episode taught me to forget social desirability bias, and just do what is right! Dostoevsky could never hope to be that revelatory!
