A pyramid scheme will consume everything, part 1

One of my foul-mood theories about the end of everything 1 is that the vast majority of people in this country are so greedy and would stab their own babies for a chance to get a million bucks that they’ll sign up for any harebrained idea that comes along promising easy money. Call it MLM, link exchange, whatever – it’s a pyramid scheme. So the moron who bought this will try and sell it to someone else, and on and on. Or he’ll try to recoup his money with one of the schemes where you “get” an ipod for $50. I guess there really is a sucker born every minute…

1 everything I know, anyway
