them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

And when Obama actually does something about autism Trump will take credit for revealing that Obama only deals with trivial issues such as autism and should focus on larger issues like the economy.

Maybe I'm too *sensitive* but there are certain commercials that bug me whenever I see them.
Commercial 1: Little boy ordering his mom to pop open the cinnamon roll tube, then ordering his sister to make sure she puts them exactly 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. After the rolls are done baking and the females have put the frosting on them, the little boy enjoys a cinnamon roll that he could have put some effort into making himself.
Commercial 2: Dad and child (male or female) are having fun and end up making a mess. Hard-working mom (who wasn't included in the fun) happily cleans up their mess with the best paper towel evah, even though dad and child are capable of cleaning up their own mess.
I have seen one paper towel commercial where the mom hands the roll of paper towels to the people who made the mess. If I was into branding, that's the brand I would buy.Johari / Nohari

TOTALLY. Is there a thread on this? I know I started one years ago at INTPc but I wouldn't mind revisiting it here.

I am confounded as to why people are surprised that the election campaigns are employing negative advertising? I mean... it happens every time there is an election, presidential or no. Both sides do it. I don't like it either, but it seems to be par for the course.
