Sifting through the amount of information that's presented to us these days is like entering a hoarder's home and finding 582 pet carcasses before you actually stumble upon anything of value. And even then, what you think may be a rare antique brooch may actually be a hairball from 1937.
Besides trying to interject how much I love/hate the TV show Hoarders (it's always about me, me, me!), my point is that there's a lot of crap out there. And even worse, is when that crap tries to disguise itself as something of substance.
Lately this has been annoying me in the form of "research" and "warnings". You know, that thing where so-called smart people spend their time inundating society with findings that surprise no one ever. Conclusions as groundbreaking as "lack of sleep leads to tiredness", "breathing keeps you alive", or "loud co-workers make you wish they had a paper jam in their mouth".
