As a way to get some blogging going, I’ll participate in a #Writephoto again. Writing this on a Sunday afternoon, I’ll wait to post it until Monday, for the benefit of my readers who might not be online on Sundays. Yet, I’m going to have a Sports Twist on it.
What you see may not always be as it is. This is especially true in advertising and other venues, and can lead customers astray to the benefit of the sellers. I have seen this trap, especially, with gas prices. Consider the next two photos:
NU vs NU: 3 days
High Holidays: 12 days
End of the Attacks: 48 days
I don’t think that this post is complete trash, but I thought it was funny. I should have written it last week when the specific prompt was fresher in my head, but I will try to take it out quickly.
After the last 24-ish hours, I felt that “Fission Mailed” was an appropriate name. It is a spoonerism of “Mission Failed,” and comes from a certain video game where you are designed to fail a certain mission. (In many video games, there are points where you are Designed To Fail.)
Additionally, a relatively recent blog post on spoonerisms that I read made this idea salient to me. So, let me talk about “Fission Mailed” as it applied to my last 24-ish hours. (No worries, I’m not a bioterrorist sending nuclear weapons through the Postal Service.)
