    You have problems that you don’t even know about and you need stuff to fix ’em. I did notice that not one advertisement refers to internet and “gig” speed. I guess that’s the difference between television (big brother) here in the US and over there in Dulltown – – – we’re all supposed to be hung up on just how fast we can get to the fake news interrupts or download a movie on your phone while driving at 70 mph…it’s a complicated algebraic equation…one of those, if a train leaves the station at 2 pm (dot dot dot). Drug companies spend an enormous amount of advertising dollars on a new drug that lets you live longer, if you have been told you will soon die (although the possible side effects, a seemingly endless list, includes sudden death!). Apparently you can carry on as if you aren’t going to die in the next day because the woman they show gets out of bed in the morning and goes to work! She’s obviously a professor (smart woman) leading a “normal” life while dying instead of lying in hospital dying. It costs a million dollars a year to take it. Which begs the question, if you were spending a million dollars a year to stay alive, would you go to work? Say you were a ….. wait a minute, if you were working for a paycheck I’m thinking you’re not making enough to pay a million dollars a year. Ho! I’d rather have an embedded pet hair problem!
