Thirteen things I am suspicious of:
1. Anything coming out of Congress. More than half of Americans think government officials are corrupt (or they did in 2011, when the distrust level was 84%!). I am one of them.
2. Anything with a link on it on Facebook.
3. New drug claims. Half of them don't work now, and if you read up on these things, many drugs are only slightly better than placebos.
4. Claims from the right wing half of the country.
5. Claims from the left wing half of the country.
6. People who tell me how great they are. Don't tell me, show me!
7. Car dealer claims and pricing. (At the link: 12 ways dealerships scam you.)
8. Claims that something is "organic." You know that is mostly BS these days, right? It's turned into a marketing ploy.
9. Vitamin cure claims. They may give you some nutrients and help with something like scurvy, but they are not cures.
10. Taking any drug that has "potential death" as a side effect.
11. Back surgeries.
12. Twenty-four hour news channels, FAUX News in particular and the rest of them in general.
13. My husband's general agreement to "fix something" right away. Nag nag nag nag nag! And then maybe he'll get it done.
Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list
been playing for a while and this is my 290th time to do a list of 13 on a
