Is anyone really affected by ads when it comes to buying things like toothpaste or laundry detergent?
@happymisanthrope I never understood that question "What surprises you the most?" He didn't wake up after a century like Rip Van Winkle and freak out at the sight of automobiles. He experienced everything second-by-second, day-by-day, year-by-year, gradually, like the rest of us.
How would you answer that question now? What changes in society surprise you the most from, say, 20 years ago? Not much, right? Everything kind of makes sense in retrospect. Of course the internet got big. Of course cell phones replaced land lines. Of course terrorism became a great threat. Of course cigarettes are looked down upon. 1994 you would flip his/her shit, but only because s/he didn't have 20 years to see it all develop.
That feeling only gets stronger the older you get because you have more evidence of how the whole cosmic picture fits together.
Wait, is this seriously what they're pushing out to phones? Say it ain't so.

@KarenUhOh I logged in just to give this a thumbs up.
It's only disruptive if everything else is changed by your actions. A new television show is popular, but 99% of the rest of TV stays the same? Not disruptive.
Now "Survivor" was disruptive. It pretty much ruined TV forever.
Define your life by the media hype.
