    People don’t listen, they just wait for their turn to talk 

    I read this line, and it was attributed to someone named Chuck Palahniuk. I could not find any information actually connecting this quote to Chuck Palahniuk — besides many other people basically doing a “copy” and “paste” of this same quote with this same attribution. Since I don’t know who actually said it — since I cannot find a link to Chuck Palahniuk as the source of this quote,  I will simply listen to the words and then tell you what I think about them.

    I find the quote very interesting.

    Here is my take on it:

    As good parents, people teach their children to ignore advertisements. As good workers, they pay to promote and advertise attention towards increasing business activity.

    Yes: I realize I have just quoted myself. :)

    Evidence-Based Life: What it takes to be somebody 

    Are you alive? You very well may be — but is there any evidence of that fact? What evidence exists that your brain is actively functioning, such that every now and then it may produce something like thoughts, feelings, ideas, etc.?

    Do you think clicking a “like” button on facebook counts? Or maybe turning on your phone such that dozens of companies in Silicon Valley are able to track your geographic location, and maybe some of them might ask you to “check in”, to “check something out”, to buy something or maybe to sign up, perhaps to sign on the dotted line?

    What designs do you have for the world? What creative ideas are you coming up with? How would anyone know about them? By being your friend on facebook?

    No facebook is made for advertisers, so unless you are going to pay facebook money, that avenue will not lead to any evidence that you are a part of the universe… — roll again!
