Truth in advertising

I have thoroughly compared these cartons and I cannot see why the ones on the left have 40 more calories than their neighbors to the right. How long  have I been unknowingly snarfing unreported calories?

However, being a trusting soul, I still believe the cartons reflect the truth.

I bought all of the remaining 280s.

The maze craze

‘Tis the season for the ubiquitous corn maze.  I have never understood their appeal. Maybe it’s because I have no inherent sense of direction and have been known to get turned around in my own small town. I like to know where I am and where I’m going. So there is no appeal to spending a precious  hour trying to find the exit to a place I spent good money to enter.

A recent visit to IKEA triggered all of the claustrophobia and frustration I remember from my visiting a corn maze as a teenager.  Even with a map, signs in the store and promised shortcuts, it took me 45 minutes to not find what I was looking for and to finally get out of the store.

It’s time to shop online.

Return of the Slovenly

Son is home for the summer from college. He’s been here less than 24 hours. He doesn’t just arrive, he explodes as he comes in the door.  Below are just 2 of the previously tidy spaces his valuable possessions have invaded.

I went to Costco last week and stocked up, in anticipation of His Hungriness.  He enthusiastically surveyed the larder and said, “So, how long did you want this food to last?”

Right now, I’m annoyed and scared for my bank account. I’ll need to re-read this when the house is too quiet in September.

Precise Ambiguity

Is artificial intelligence doing the attacking or is it preventing attacks?

My flight was delayed, so I had time to ponder this statement.  Either way I read it,  I found it unsettling.

The finer print below clarified that it was AI that could save the cyber world, which I suppose is a relief.

And isn’t the guy pictured a doppelganger for Jeff Goldblum?

Now for something truly unsettling…I was about to post this last night last night when my computer crashed.  Coincidence???
