Drowning in Wisdom

Categorized under | Tags: ,

ONE THING I've noticed in my short lifespan is that if you wait long enough, not only does everything seem to come back into style in one form or another, but it seems we get tired of conventional and sometimes "bedrock" wisdom and decide it's 180º wrong after long enough, too. Just to shake things up or something. Whatever the reason, it will happen again and again and again. Cholesterol? Evil! Wait ten years...and no, it's not! We were TOTALLY wrong about that! Oh well! Aspirin is great, take it every day to stop heart attacks! Whoa! A new medical report shows that for some, aspirin is the worse thing to take! But eight glasses of water a day, now THAT is very good, and important to do! Wait! No, that's totally wrong! It's too much!

It gets to the point where, gee, you don't really trust the "experts" so much anymore. And people call you "jaded." But the good thing about aging is you tend to care less about that sort of thing. Wait! No you don't!

Actually, yes! You do!

All these, it seems to me, are part of a clever smoke screens by the pharmaceutical Machinery.
Also, take note of all the Drug advertisements on the idiot box.
Anything to take the attention away from the real issue of holding back healthcare, a basic human necessity.
These people are cruel on a level hard to imagine while making
loads of Blood Money.

Sounds like capitalism, where greed is good; or more specifically, consumerism and being on the bleeding edge. BTW, I'm posting this via my 32 GB iPod touch.

Your observations could lead to another understanding of wisdom, namely that Socrates was right when he said that wisdom is knowing that you do not know!

Yes you CAN drink too much water. I live around the corner from the house in Chico, CA where a fraternity pledge died from drinking too much water during a hazing.

Seems like these days all you have to do to become an "expert" is to keep calling yourself one until everyone forgets that you don't know Jack.
