Brainwashing Article

I found this article on Cracked.com that I feel is more important for people to read than any of my usual drivel today.

The article is about 6 brainwashing techniques currently used and it is entertainingly written by David Wong.

This isn't a conspiracy theory, even though I have nothing against conspiracy theories. Some of my regular readers know this to be oh so true. ;)

Before you vote. Give that article a good read. It is both entertaining and might just open your eyes to something you weren't previously aware of. A word of warning though, there is some rough language and a few sets of partially covered boobs in that story that one could find either offensive or captivating.

This is a tough blog to comment on because you sent people to another link. Most will not click on the link or get so lost in the link that when they come back they will not know what to say.

The only thing I can say so far, is that that guy's writing is pretty funny.

I did know about those brainwashing techniques because my hubby points them out every time we're watching a commercial.

He could write circles around this David Wong about brainwashing techniques in your daily life.

Sometimes before I write a blog, I do some research to see if anyone has written anything similar. Sometimes people do and in a more visible publication. Then I just redirect people to it.

I don't see it as laziness really. Consider it professional courtesy. :)

P.S. Thanks for the booming compliment! XD

I changed the link function so it would open in a separate page or a separate tab and people could come back here to the Silent Podium. :)

That's great! It's funny how lazy people can be on the internets. (Not saying your readers are lazy) But I've seen it happen before. It's pretty funny :)

*Ugh! I don't want to click on that link!!!!!!!!*
