Things That Make You Go "Hmmmmmmmmm..."

As anyone who notices what time most of my blogs go up can tell you, I am a night owl. Frequently, as I am working, the normal TV programming ends and the get right scheme infomercials pop up hoping to find some sucker or Ron Paul supporter to send them money.

All of these schemes make claims that you can quit your job and make millions in about 5 minutes of work today. And, to help you do so, they all promise you that, as part of the purchase price of their program, you can call their "advisors" at any time for six months or a year or whatnot. Now, logically, it would seem that these advisors would definitely be experts in how to make yourself a millionaire in 5 minutes a day, after all, they would need to be knowledgeable in the system to be able to help out the unwashed, and probably undereducated masses who call.

Of course, that begs the question, if, by using this program, you can quit your job and become a millionaire in 5 minutes a day, then why are the experts working some lame ass late night telemarketing job?

The world may never know... I would write more, but I have to watch this program on how to lose hundreds of pounds by drinking chocolate milkshakes!
