I Care About These Fascinating Ideas
"Great title for a book, except it's wrong. I do care about these ideas.
The back jacket of this book is humorous in its notion that we're all too busy to do any real thinking about things we observe
everyday around us. We just take for granted that something like marriage is the way it is and don't ask any more questions. If you got any
intellectual curiosity whatsoever, you can't fail to be impressed with what's in here.
I'm not using what I've read
in here to be the life of any party, but I am having a lot more interesting conversations around the dinner table."

"My brother found this book and read it. He recommended it to me. He doesn't recommend books often so I got my own copy.
Never bored. The book strikes the right balance between humor, information, and entertainment. If all books could so this, I'd be reading a lot
more than I sit in front of the TV."
Bryan Scheiner, Pretoria, South Africa

You're at a party. Across the room you spot a work colleague you sort of know. He's no better looking, smarter, or wealthier than you, yet a crowd of gushing onlookers surround him, enraptured by every word he says.
How does he do it?
He stopped being boring and took in some fascinating ideas. He actually picked up - and read - a copy of Fascinating Ideas You Could Care Less About, chock a block full of fascinating ideas you'll love to share and others will love to hear.
We understand why you care less now. Life can be a grind, and you don't have any spare time to care more. So why not outsource the deep thinking and let a perpetual questioner and dilettante philosopher look for the answers on fascinating topics you'd like to be thinking about but aren't?
In fifty amazingly entertaining and informative articles (+ one bonus chapter), each packed with enough humor to make even Voldemort and Darth Vader chuckle, you're certain to gather enough conversational tidbits to leave others thinking you're a genius.
Stop talking about the weather and who won last night's football match. You won't even care in another week. Instead, start talking about fascinating ideas that aren't dating.
Fascinating ideas like:
- Why the dating industry is really the baiting industry.
- The nature of aging: are you really just as old as you feel?
- Is the overall level of world intelligence steadily getting lower? How can this be when all of us think we're so brilliant?
- Is there any intelligence in crafting an alternative Plan B for your life?
- What's a better alternative to being a superpower? You don't have to read a stack of superpower books or debate whether the sun is already setting on the American century to bring up this interesting angle at a party.
- Does the institution of marriage belong in an institution? Do open and casual relationships really work?
- Are you better off in some alternate universe? Or are the sad reality and the alternate reality for you actually one and the same?
- When one belief contradicts another but all are for sale, how can you tell which beliefs to buy?
- If economic theory has any validity in the wizarding world, how do wizards and witches in the Harry Potter universe generate a decent, if not magical, standard of living?
- Products become obsolescent even before they're aging off the assembly line. Are humans on an identical conveyor belt of obsolescence?
- Was Paula Abdul sensible to leave American Idol over a salary dispute? In the alternate universe in which the mega-rich and famous reside, how do you calculate somebody's worth to a project?
- And much, much more.
Worst case scenario: you don't get invited to any parties. Would it hurt to become more interesting and creative anyway?
The average American adult spends about 5 hours per day watching television. It's old news that extended television viewing lowers the verbal IQ in children and decreases problem-solving abilities and creativity in adults.
Business Insider recommends a few ways to get sharper. Let me humor you: read a chapter in a book, subscribe to feeds of interesting information, check in with your favorite knowledge sources, stimulate your mind, talk to someone interesting, share what you learn.
They could have kept the list a lot shorter and just advised one to read a copy of Fascinating Ideas You Could Care Less About.
If you are what you think about, then thinking about fascinating ideas makes you more fascinating. And thus, buying your own copy of this book becomes a very fascinating idea!
Is that an idea you should care less about?
