Stupid Advertising (Rant)

Is it just me, or does anyone else think the tv ads for York air conditioning have reached a new high in absurdity? If you haven't seen them, the ads promote York home central a/c units based on the fact that you can get the condensing unit (the part that sits outside) in your choice of colors.

What's next, ads for liposuction based on optional scrub colors in the OR?

(I told you it was a rant... )

Numbers is hard

The key to understanding human behavior is realizing half the population is below average.

Or get a tivo. I havent seen a commercial in years.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
