TBD on Ning

Seems that everywhere I look, someone is wanting to let me in on a secret.

The secret to losing 5 lbs a day; The secret that lets you beat the stock market year after year; The secret that Big Oil don't want you to know: The secret way to whiten your teeth that a suburban mom uses; The secret way to build muscle; and on and on.

What is this fascination with secrets? Is it really a secret, how Warren Buffet got rich? How Oprah lost a gazillian pounds?

Have you ever paid anyone to let you in on the secrets to a better life? Have you bought a magazine to find out some secret about a celebrity? To learn how to sleep better?  

Do secrets really sell? Let us in on your secrets.

"Secrets" is just one way copywriters use to grab the interest of the gullible.

Learning how to be a copywriter has been very instructive for me.

Advertising is just commercial propaganda.

I don't have any secrets.  People never tell me anything.  Do they know something I don't?

I'm not telling.

Uhh, Stir...before I invest (notice I used the word "invest") in your 'secrets" of life will I make more money, or get better looking, grow more hair on my head....got enough every where else, or just feel better knowing I have contributed to your personal wealth????

Well now, if I told you that, Bob, before receiving your payment, that wouldn't make me much of a success, would it?  ;-) 

I do like to color my hair, but if I don't mention that to everyone I meet does that mean I'm keeping it a secret?

I've always wondered at what point does my own personal business become a secret?

All of it is a secret till you post it on the 'net.

*always include pictures*

I have no secrets.

Just some horrifying facts that nobody's figured out the right way to ask me to share them.

What if I say pretty please?

I used to assume my only private time was when I was in the bathroom alone.   I'm starting to question that.

I know where the lady that won the war on static cling lives.
