Honestly, I can't think of a more ignorant phrase of pseudo-statistics.

Not that i believe in the scientificity of it all but i did enjoy some like:
30. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Helps us to keep things in perspective.

Then again, do you believe in the scientificity of all the information the mainstream medias bash out at us everyday?

Exactly what it is. A bunch of partial truths and feel-goodisms you'd likely find on Buzzfeed or other clickbait websites.

True, but we all can see the need of an occasional fable...
The other day i went looking of a song i enjoyed as a young boy, something that had the words "sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere." A childish song for sure, but as a boy it just uplifted my heart and filled it with joy as i contemplated a blue sky on my uncles backyard swing.

I don't know how people can spend their time watching stories about living dead... must be true stories since these programs are almost everywhere on tv.
