You ever notice how every article in The Mission is nothing more than a hackneyed, cliche ridden, crap-fest full of lots of authoritative sounding pronouncements and “expert” advice that upon closer examination are nothing more than made up pseudo-science and glorified ass kissing delivered in clickbait and/or listicle format.

I have. If only I could see reality in a different way like the truly smart among us. In my different reality The Mission would be a legitimate publication publishing insightful, fact based, and helpful articles on topics more diverse than how smart/good looking/awesome/clever Elon Musk/Jeff Bezos/Zuckerburg/random internet billionaire is. Unfortunately I am condemned to spend my days among the ranks of the lowly “average” and see and experience reality as it actually is rather than in the fundamentally different way that would be required for that possibility to come to pass.
