jiu-jitsu moves against rampant consumerism

At fast food: "Do you want to super-size that for only 10 cents more?"
Correct answer: "You mean I can save money by getting less food? I'll take the smallest portion you've got!"

New flat TV ploy: "From ten feet away, you can only appreciate the finer detail of 1080p resolution if you buy a 65-inch monster."
Correct response: "So at a sane TV size there's no reason to buy a set with more pixels? Thanks for saving me $1000!"



  • Could not agree more.
    Shame so many folks "buy" into these kinds of marketing ploys. Is it laziness or lack of education (ability to think critically)? Or maybe both?
