WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW SO YOU WON’T DIE…news at eleven
Well the news did it again, scared the crap outta me with a warning about something I really can’t do much about. They do this every night.
Coffee is bad for you, apples have a chemical that will give you cancer, hackers are watching you from your own computer, hot tubs will give you venereal disease, what you need to know about bubble gum, escalators a death trap? News at eleven.
Every night there is something new, something that might ruin my life; And the next night they tell you why coffee protects against cancer, an apple a day really will keep the doctor away, Skype can save your marriage, relaxing in a hot tub will lower your blood pressure, bubble gum will clean your teeth, and escalators are…well they are still a death trap.
Tonight they got me worried about credit cards. Apparently people can walk up to you with some new electronics and steal all your credit card information just by passing something over your butt, they also warn you do not give your credit card to anyone even for a minute. Identity theft is rampant and will ruin your life.
Fine, thank you very much eleven o’clock news, but what am I to do? Do I carry my card in a steel wallet so that the electronic devise won’t work? When at a restaurant do I follow the waitress up to the cashier when I give her my card? Do I pay for everything in cash?
The eleven o’clock news tells you to never give anyone your social security number or financial information, but try that when you go to the doctor, or the DMV, or when you apply for anything, or buy anything on-line.
Now I also find out that people can use computers and remotely control my car!
I have decided to only drink coffee on days that it is supposed to be good for you, wash the crap out of my apples, put a piece of tape over the camera on my computer, stay out of hot tubs unless my blood pressure is high and then wear a condom, only chew bubble gum on odd number days, use the stairs, only carry cash, stay off the internet and sell my car.
Stop watching the eleven o’clock news.
