Somebody just won the £184,000,000 lottery prize I was hoping for. I hope they will be very happy. I know I would be. Yes, there will be problems with being so rich, but I’m sure most of us would be happy to put up with them.
Most of the problems could be solved by having an accountant and a butler, and with that sort of money you should have no problem recruiting staff.
I just searched for a link to that to check my facts and see that Adidas had an advert for a sports bra banned because it shows pictures of naked breasts. I had to search for an example of the advert because most of the stories seem afraid to use it in an unblurred fashion. This blogging stuff is hard work, but I am prepared to do it for my readers.
As a result, I am able to report that I don’t find the poster objectifies women, causes me any offence, or makes me want to buy a sports bra. It does make me think that while I have been frittering my time away, I have missed out on a worthwhile career.
On the other hand, despite frittering my life away, it could have been worse. I could have been an advertising executive, or I could have been a lawyer. With recent high profile legal cases like the Johnny Depp defamation case and the Rebekah Vardy social media case, I have a new found feeling of contempt for lawyers, and celebrities, and social media.
Remember that reporting of these cases is making the front pages where the UK’s declaration of support for Sweden and Finland, the war in Ukraine and the shooting of a reporter in Palestine.
There must be a whole academic area to be researched around this subject. What weighting do we give the antics of worthless celebrities compared to the lives of people slaughtered by occupying military forces? How do we feel about a poster full of bare breasts compared to illegal military occupations? And, would you rather your kids grew up to be lawyers, celebrities or ruthless war criminals?
I think I may christen the new academic discipline The Index of Worthlessness and try to get myself a PhD in why most celebrities would do more good for the environment if we composted them instead of giving them airtime.

£184,000,000 wouldn’t solve all problems, but it does make many things easier to navigate in life. I agree, what makes the news some days makes one wonder. 🙂
🙂 It would improve my life in most areas, but the research indicates that I would them become worried about other things. Worrying about the price of caviare has to beat worrying about the price of cheese.
We couldn’t agree more about the relative importance of news – so often the Deppths are reached
Your tags for this post are very good. I like it when blue tits visit my garden as I am sure that it increases my causal readership by one or two if I put them in the tags.
🙂 I’m sure it does! We often joke about the way people title their sales on eBay – it is depressing that the ones that mange to sneak in “Nazi” and “boobs” seem to do better than us.
