I tend to analyze things to death, or at least I used to. I was the guy who was upset when Star Wars first came out because the spacecraft roared through space. I said to my wife, after the movie, "That is so inaccurate. How could the spacecraft possible make any noise in the vacuum of space. there is no air to carry the sound waves? The movie was full of nonsence. Parsecs are a measure of distance, not time." etc. etc.
Somewhere in the passage of time, I realized that I could ignore the stupidity of Hollywood, including all of the stupid comercials on the little box (they don't call it a boob tube for nothing
) and just enjoy the movies or shows that I watch for simply entertainment value. I know that advertizers are all willing to bend the truth to sell their product, and that often times, they expect that we are all stupid. I would go as far as to state that they give as little real information as possible so asa to confuse the general public into thinking they have something worth purchasing. And though I have caught myself in the occasional mistruth, I try very hard to be truthful. I personally ignore almost all commercials as I believe teh people who write them are a disgrace to the companies and priducts that they try so absurdly to represent.
Sadly, there are those who are sucked into the lies, and the misrepresentations, only to be dissapoointed at best, or to have purchsased something that will degrade their lifestyle or health at worst.
Simply put, it my personal opinion that advertizers are scam artists. I hope that I have not offended anyone with my opinion. And to be sure, just as there are honorable and good lawyers, there are honorable and good advertizers. I just haven't seen many of them, at least few that present themselves to the public.
