Things with the useless factor
When you find a new ‘something’, the chances that it is junk are pretty high. In fact, take the world wide crap. Probably 99 per cent of it is useless waste. A waste of money and time. Take this blog. It even features unessential mental trash. I assume you could even fill a whole dictionary with synonyms for rubbish.
On the bright side, it shows where our civilisation is heading. The Inuit got 8 hundred words for snow, we got them for our garbage. Alright, it’s a never-ending hoax, they only have as much as any other language knows. But that’s not the point.
All goes back to Mr Human – the hunter and collector. Personally, I doubt the hunter feature as humans seem too lazy to me since right from the start. However, I really trust in the collection business of mankind. I mean, look at eBay and weird burned bread, old chewing gum or whatsoever. Everybody collects things that would be useless without the personal context. Example: take nuts, leave the squirrel, add a nut allergic and again, add an angry wife with lust to kill. Even nuts make sense.
So the context is the key to success. Change it and you got a whole lot of new opportunities – or a ton of crap.
