The Onion is a hilarious fake newspaper, but sometimes they nail it. There are so many gadgets **coughs CAT tools coughs** out there that are supposed to make our lives "better" and more "convenient", and yet when we finally get around to reading all the 500-page manuals (the 15 of them), a new version is released and we have to learn how to use the whole thing all over again. (I love the last comment on the video.)
Their latest report is exactly about that. Just one disclaimer, the link is not suitable for work and if you are easily offended, stay away.

they really say more truth than any other "official source"...
Although (and I say this as someone who's not easily offended) it would actually have been better if they'd sworn less.

Good stuff. So true.
Btw, the film came the last second, I was about to buy (gg).
