"19 Tiny Dogs That You Need In Your Life"

No kidding. That was one of those teaser stories that popped up when I closed my Yahoo email tonight. They must use templates for those stories and just plug in the variables:

[Number here] ways you can [insert something desirable here].

[Number here] shocking facts you never knew about [insert name of celebrity, disease, a sexual practice, or your favorite food].

[Number here] things you should NEVER do if [you have a social life, a job, money, or if you eat things].

But I'm positive the most effective sure-fire grabbers are always:

[Number here] [specify dog breed or cat or other animal] you MUST [insert "see to believe" "that will make you laugh" "that will make you cry" "that will amaze you" or, yes, "that you need in your life"]

So. Did I click?

*hangs head in dejection*

Yes. I did. It was research for a future blog: "Seventeen ways to waste the precious minutes that are dripping through the hour glass of your finite life."

I almost wasted a few sands of the hourglass just now by hovering my cursor over "Gray Hair Mistakes Everyone Makes." Then I thought, "mistake?" My gray hair is not a mistake, it's nature. I'll be damned if I let myself be sucked into one more media message about how inadequate I am physically. Critical thinking skills FTW. Fuck you, baiting media!

(Blanchie, if it took you 4 minutes and 32 seconds to check the Ark for something new, then you better get your iron checked.)
