Gullibility at All Time High
According to a study out of Daytona University, people are more gullible now than they have ever been.
Doctor Mikel Jarod, who is also a professional Formula 1 racer, said it started when he was duped by a cleverly phrased advertisement.
"It was for a solar powered clothing dryer; $19.99 plus shipping," Jarod explained, "I felt like I would be a fool to not buy it."
When the device arrived, however, what Jarod found was a length of clothesline. Upset, he decided to embark on a quest, mostly online, but also around the world in his Formula 1 race car, which is also a jet plane and boat.
While he is quick to point out that the data is still trickling in, it already shows that most people will believe almost anything as long as it seems legit.
It seems the old Greek adage, famously spoken by Homer, is correct: “There is a sucker born every time an angel gets its wings.”
