Time to Read – Need to do some research first…
“Are you in need of validation?”
Recently published research shows if you update your Facebook page from a smart phone, while driving, you don’t drive very well because you won’t be looking at the road!
News flash! Scientists prove that swallowing magnets is bad for you.
Stop the presses! Smoking hurts wealth as well as health.
Eureka! Faraway objects can be hard to see.
These blindingly obvious conclusions reached after much investment of time, resource and money are sometimes justified on the basis that people are more likely to do or not do something when it is proved as a scientific fact!
Please – stop patronising us and let common sense prevail, so we can reach conclusions based on that ultimate research called life.
Trust in your own experiences and have faith in what you know without having to obtain any validation, reassurance or permission from anyone else.
On the other hand, as this too is advice from someone else, maybe we need to do some research on whether it is right or not – ok, back in a year with my conclusions…
With my love and best wishes to you all
