George Carlin once said, “Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.” It's a quote that I always think about whenever I wonder how something so stupid could possibly exist. 

Why do we have so many warning labels? Why do the news anchors feel like they need to explain things I already know? Why do advertisements work so hard to convince me to buy things I already know I need? That's why I'm in the store, after all. The answer is that there are people out there who need these things.
