A short rant on celebrity stupidity

I try not to follow celebrities closely, as I don’t really feel their personal lives have anything to do with the product they’re selling me.  This doesn’t mean I don’t follow – it’s almost impossible, in our society.  But I do try to not comment on every thing they do.

Earlier today, however, I came across a story that made me incredibly angry.  It was talking about a remix of a song called “Turn Up The Music” by Chris Brown.  This particular remix features Rihanna, and was tweeted by the singer herself, pointing fans to where they could hear it.

I was able to find the originating tweet and have included it below:

Pizza delivery that’s out of this world!!

People on Earth are lazy, really.  It’s why fast-food restaurants thrive.  Who wants to go home after a long day at the office and cook dinner??  Well, a lot of people.  But for those that don’t, there’s restaurants, take-out, and delivery.  A big staple of delivery has always been the classic, well-loved pizza.

And if Earthlings are too tired to cook, who’s to say that people who one day live on the moon (moonlings?) will be any more inclined to cook?

Domino’s is already preparing for that.

They are building a £13.4 billion (approx $21.9 billion USD) domed-shaped restaurant on the moon.  They also plan to offer delivery.

REALLY??  I mean, it’s kinda cool and all, but aren’t there better things you could spend $21.9 billion on??  Maybe something that would be of use this side of 100 years.  Maybe give everyone a raise??  Better pizza-making machines??

Or better yet, increasing the quality of their pizzas???

Maybe it’s only in Canada (or even only in Toronto) that Domino’s pizza is sub-par, but I find that it’s really only awesome at one specific time: when you’re drunk.  Everything tastes great then, including Domino’s.  But when you reheat it the next day…eww.

Maybe they should work on getting ppl to the moon first.  Maybe establish a colony??  A restaurant would be useless up there if there is no one to feed.  Or maybe they’re hoping aliens will use the drive-thru??

Maybe they should just give me the $21.9 billion.  I could find a few things to do with it.

Apple’s new high-tech device??

People can be stupid.  And they can shop stupid.  But this story here has definitely got to spotlight that people will buy anything if it has the right brand name on it.

http://gawker.com/5835890/woman-buys-a-block-of-wood-with-an-apple-logo-thinking-its-an-ipad

So basically, a woman goes to McDonald’s and has some guys come up to her and offer to sell her an iPad for $300.  She tells them she only has $180 on her, and they sell it to her anyways.  She goes home, opens it, and realizes it’s nothing more than a block of wood with a logo painted on it.

Yes, you read that right.  A block of wood.

Now, I don’t know about you, but if I’m getting a “great deal”, I would want to inspect the goods before I buy them, be it from strange men in a parking lot or in a department store.  I would NOT take their word, and the word of the “contents” section of the FedEx label.

So then this woman goes home, finds out it’s a fake, and CALLS THE COPS.  I’m not gonna lie, I’d love to have heard that conversation.  I bet it gave the police officers a nice laugh.  How do you call and ask them to investigate how you stupidly bought a fake item??

I’m not sure if I consider that robbery.  I mean, if she’d asked to see the iPad, she would have known it’s a fake.  Technically, all they did was lie.  But don’t all salesmen do that??

My opinion, since you asked, is that this is just another example of dumb people making dumb choices.  Should we feel bad for her??  Yes.  Should we punish the clearly great salesmen for lying about the product they’re selling??  No.  In fact, Apple should hire them.  They can obviously sell anything with an Apple logo.

And in the end, was the block of wood really less useful than the iPad??
