Shopping channels

People wonder why I watch shopping channels sometimes. Easy answer: They are filled with enthusiastic and upbeat people ALL THE TIME.

Think about it. Your Facebook and Twitter feeds probably have many bad things on it -- death, political fighting, diet suggestions that make a death march look like fun, recipes with enough fat to lubricate a diesel engine, etc. But none of that show up on a shopping channel.

In fact, if those people mention a problem -- like not enough storage space for your shopping bags or your hair is so unruly that it's actually causing riots in the streets -- they only do so to tell you the solution.

A solution they will offer you.

Sometimes with Easy Payments and Easy Credit Terms.
