Justifying a Justifiable Justification

Smoking: if you smoke about 5 to 6 cigarettes a day, everyday for a year you will have spent around $1,000 to $2,000 a year. Was it worth it?

Some stupid fad supplement that you probably don't need: average cost, only $4 a day! Your health is worth $4 a day.

Now let's flip the narrative.

Smoking: Only $5 a day! Calms your nerves, allows you to meet new and interesting people and nicotine is a proven appetite suppressant. Lose weight and gain friends for a matter of a few dollars.

Some stupid fad supplement that you probably don't need: $1,500 a year for a trial that didn't work. Was it worth it?

Here's the deal. Can we stop justifying everything we do? Can we just simply do a thing without applying complex mathematics to make sure that it is worth it? These math problems were created for propaganda purposes, whether they are for good or evil. Look thru the veil and make your own educated decisions. Do some research. Money is no object. Don't get bogged down by the math and the PR/Marketing machine. Always play the devil's advocate to see if there is a scheme behind something or a pattern between two seemingly unrelated topics.

Meanwhile, I will continue to stream movies on Netflix because it's only $0.26 a day, or $7.99 a month or $96 a year...however you care to look at it, good or bad. I just really like watching movies. Isn't that enough?
