I now blame it on pheromones. At least that’s my new theory to explain certain things. Not the variety usually associated with causing attraction between organisms but a somewhat different version. A type of pheromone that causes someone to go unnoticed or be made to seem invisible like they aren’t really there. A biological cloaking device that fools the observer to go on with whatever they were doing and never notice the person giving off this particular pheromone. This would explain many things.
When did choosing and applying to colleges become a competitive activity? Based on my experience it was as simple as making decent grades in high school then filling out the application(s). Parents are now acting as coach, strategist, trainer and cheerleader, making preparations before the kid becomes a teenager. I remember wanting to keep my parents as far removed from the process as possible(apart from signing the checks).
Noticed where the movie “Titanic” is being released with an alternate ending. Does this mean it doesn’t sink? Hollywood is developing a reputation for writing revisionist history.
