Is this a rhetorical question?

Don’t you get better results when you bait the hook? Eventually some fish are hungry (or dumb) enough to bite.

Many corporations bank on the fact that we're just a bunch of sheeple. That we'll believe anything they tell us.

I miss used the word, meant marketing cultures. But an example would be Pepsi's controversial ad from year ago. That later they apologized and removed.

Some of this may have flown right over me. But- yes there are insurance people that really want to help you. Check out a mutual insurance company, the folks that cover our cars and house are genuinely on our side. Not just giving it lip service, but really making sure they take care of us. (Wish I could insure my S10 with them. They do not do bikes.) At the end of the day a mutual company makes no profit, any excess funds are returned to members.

I a bit of what you mentioned but also I like keeping the ball rounding. I like seeing different sides of the ball.
Can an educated or otherwise geometrically proficient person here tell me whether or not balls actually have side??? I must be overthinking it and this is in no way meant to be derogatory... ;)

Its a figure of speech like when you toss the ball at some body. They are seeing it from there perspective as the comes towards them and they catch it. They are the viewer, just like when light hits moon its round but there's side that's in darkness, its matter of perspective. We see in much the same manner, we see what we want to see and although there might be more to something we just cant see it. If your trying to see it from a geometrical way its when you look at something straight on and it looks flat or 2D or X on a Y axis. It lacks contrast and therefore it looks flat but that's one of the problems with human eye on a biological perspective.

Of course a ball has sides.
There's the inside and outside.

Where can you go a mile south, a mile west, a mile north, and be where you started?

perhaps the OP should change the title......


Do people that argue about stupid crap really matter?
or
We are stupid
or
I am already stupid after reading this post



IDK, I am going to read a TI, dictionary or whatever to get back what I lost while trying to figure this thread out . Not going to operate any heavy machinery or drive for a few hours either.
