Mysteries of the Universe

One of the enduring puzzles that the universe presents me with is this: why are so many people willing to pay so much for people to lie to them? To be sure, it's a bit more obvious why people pay to have someone lie for them, but people do have to pay with their time and sometimes cable subscription fees to get Fox News (and other sources of systematic misinformation).

I guess that self delusion remains one of our most potent recreational drugs.
