Maybe I am just paranoid, or maybe I have listened to too many paranoid people but I always do my best to avoid advertisements. As in, when an advertisement comes on TV or Youtube or any other sort of media, I actively ignore it by not watching or listening to it.
Of course I cant escape ALL adverts, but I try.

Is this weird? Am I alone on this? Am I just being paranoid?
poll incoming.

I think I will do that. A good walk to clear my head sounds good right now, at 3am, in this desolate, 3rd world community we call a native American reservation. Maybe watching the methheads wander aimlessly in the valley will clear my thoughts of this paranoid fog. It kinda sounds nice, watching the sunrise while the drug addicts drift off to find their next fix, smoking a cigarette on a high hill... Of course if I'm gonna do that Im gonna need some refreshment to tide me over......



I wonder how long it would take me to walk the 3 miles to the gas station to buy a ice-cold, frosty refreshing Coke?.....

well, it took me 3 hours to walk 8 miles at midnight so my guess is about an hour if you're slow

Im a pretty strong runnner/walker (I am descended from a long line of nomads) so I think I could do it in 45mins maybe. I am also a pretty unassuming and docile looking guy. Most likely someone would pick me up, and even more likely that person would b a police officer...

Are you sure thats a weird thing Josh?
I have witnessed people watching the same channel for at least an hour and see the same advert for tacos, then start to crave those tacos even thought they never tried them (admittedly this may have been due to "the munchies stage" of the evening but my case still stands on it's own legs).

Advertising is brainwashing. I hate it. It makes me sick. It's so bad. So fake. Bites me in the ass like a raticate.

Meh, the kids who get in the stranger's van probably weren't going to grow up to be president anyway.

I do the same.

Say what you want about me but the sheer amount of advertisements to which we're exposed daily is pretty disgusting and is akin to brainwashing. Granted it's a pretty pathetic and shallow form of brainwashing but I don't really have a better name for being unwillingly exposed to hundreds (distasteful) images daily with the intent of making me more susceptible to buying certain brands and products.

The only reason this isn't generally viewed as pervasive is a little word called ideology.
