I confess, morbid curiosity sometimes gets the better of me.  So I clicked on a link that promised to tell me about the people who should not be allowed to “gym.”  (And that’s the way it used the word — as a verb, not a noun.  So back off, grammar Nazis!)

I saw one picture and closed the page.


The tagline was, “25 Dumb Things People Think are Cool.”  I was drawn in.  The caption led me to believe it would be a list of things that are inherently dangerous, or that are based on pseudo-science.  Turns out, as a couple of clicks revealed, it was basically a list of things that many people in our culture like but the one making the list does not like.  I really need to spend less time online.
