During the Super Bowl this year, I watched the commercials like everyone else. It is amazing that we used to wait for commercials to go to the bathroom and get another beer. Now we actually enjoy them as a form of entertainment. The commercial for Chevy trucks about the Mayan 2012 doomsday was great. The message was clear even a catastrophic event can be avoided with their product. We are a society that is sold every minute of the day. TV, billboards, radio, internet, etc. We are told that buying this product or that will improve our lives. It, of course, seldom does. If products could truly make us happy and healthy there wouldn’t be any rich people that were unhappy and sick. Buy wisely but believe in yourself not the snake oil!
