      Are your opinions shaped by Facebook memes and bumper stickers? Do you listen to talk radio and find yourself saying “Hot dang, that feller’s right”? You may suffer from Information Cancer, a condition in which simplistic yet tempting ideas multiply aggressively in the mind, choking off rational thought. Without early detection and treatment, victims of this disease are reduced to barely-coherent ramblings like the one above. Here at the Center for Cognitive Cancer Prevention, we specialize in advanced therapies to fight Information Cancer. Although there is no miracle cure, with therapy and fact-checking, most cases can be brought safely into remission. Let us help; we are a non-profit organization devoted to mental well-being and not a front for a secret Soviet takeover even though that’s what Glenn Beck told you after he noticed our initials spell CCCP, honestly that’s just a coincidence and see you’re doing it right now.

    “What i do not understood is in fact how you are not actually a lot more smartly-preferred than you might be now.”

    Story of my life. I don’t get it either.

    I expected that I would have been more smartly-preferred by the time I retired. Sigh.

    Evidently USA at epidemic level. It’s like watching Lemmings heading for the cliff.

    I believe in nothing from numerous numerous angles. That approach has served me well in life. Except with respect to Lady Gaga – I believe in her from an immeasurable number of angles.

      Halp! Mike!! How do I link a video? I’m apparently even more of a Luddite than I thought…

        Apparently, the site doesn’t know how to process YouTube links in the short form, with “” in the URL. I updated your comment with a standard URL. Love that song, BTW.

    Finally, I’ve found a diagnosis. Now I can run back to the Drs next week and tell them I have Information Cancer. I knew it was something, I just didn’t have a name for it. It’s such a relief to finally know.

    Love this one! It reminds me of one of my favorites from CO which you wrote, called The Facinating Human Body. Hope everyone is headed for a good weekend!
