1. Are We Even Pretending That We're Not All Going To Be Wearing These Stupid Apple Watches In Five Years?

While Gizmodo's Mario Aguilar makes a compelling argument for why none of us should buy this first-generation version of the Apple Watch, we're all in agreement that we're all going to buy the watch eventually, right? I mean, not right away! We'll obviously spend a lot of time mocking it and making fun of the people we see wearing it. But then, in a couple months or a couple years, we'll start quietly eyeballing it online and trying to work its $350 selling price into our budgets. This is just the cycle of things. It's best to accept it.

Telling your children that they are special may result in them becoming narcissistic twerps whom nobody loves later in life, according to a new study from Ohio State University. Instead, parents should remind their children that they are completely replaceable and that regardless of how much they achieve, the universe will ultimately wipe away all trace of their existence. That should lead to much better results.
