Why People Believe The Bullshit They Are Told

Posted on Updated on

img1497705511720.jpgBy now, you probably know that I don’t buy into things easily. I try to look into them, and a lot of the times, I spot the rubbish lying below. I’ve talked about brain gym and meditation. I have proven that extinction doesn’t have to be bad, and have asserted the value plastic bags bring to the environment.

I’ve talked about why everyone would want feminism (even if you hate women) and have explained how data mining will help you.

I have exposed the fraudulent prison system and challenged juvenile. I have even refuted the concept of equality (“turned it on its head”, as one commenter put it).

And there is a lot more to come.

 

But all the while, I’ve wondered why people believe this stuff. Why they are so gullible. Here is the solution to the mystery that’s bugged me for so long.

Turns Out Hitler Wasn’t 100% Bad

Posted on

He did some pretty horrible things, but he did a trickle of good too

Image result for hitlerAdolf Hitler, how his name is pronounced will always be a great mystery — ‘A-dolf’, or ‘a dolf’?
But there is one thing for certain that everyone agrees on — he was a horrible, terrible person with nothing good in him. But let’s address that, shall we? I personally disagree. Despite his crimes, he did do more than a little good for the world (this in no way suggests that his crimes can be forgiven or that I am a Nazi sympathiser. I simply try to look on the other side of things).

Becoming Both a Morning Person and a Night Owl — How to Live On 24 Hours a Day

Apparently, both of them together aren’t impossible (and it’s really good)

Admit it — we all want more hours in the day. Twenty-four just aren’t enough. And the truth is, we don’t even have twenty-four! We actually have somewhere near twelve to fourteen (assuming you get a good night’s sleep). I was fed up of this. I needed more time. So I crafted a solution.

Since three weeks now, I have implemented this pattern of life (sorry if that sounded terribly cliché), and to most, it would sound like I’m a complete maniac. But honestly, it’s been amazing.

Ladies First – The Surprising Origin of This Clichéd Phrase

Posted on Updated on

You have no doubt heard “Ladies first” being repeated over and over again throughout your life. It used to be an expected courtesy, and now it’s occasionally used in jest. But have you ever stopped and wondered where the phrase came from?

Maybe you thought it stemmed from a chauvinistic society who though women could not perform to the standard of men, and hence they were given the right to try things first.

When A Serial Killer Hitch Hikes

A short mystery/adventure story | Maybe I Will – 2

 

The moon signalled it was midnight, and a dry wind blew, ruffling Craig Huffington’s hair. He stood to one side of the road, arm out, thumb up — the typical hitch hike position. With a name like that, most people thought he came from a wealthy family, with a posh background and a lavish lifestyle. That was only two-thirds true though. Yes, he came from an affluent family with a swish background. But he did not live an unstintingly relaxing lifestyle. Being cast out of the house did that to you.
Craig’s family was part of a tribe. And tribes had enemies. No one really knew why the tribes hated each other. These alliances were formed long ago, longer than anyone cared to admit. But they were followed religiously nonetheless. Craig made the mistake of fraternising with the enemy. And he faced the consequences.
