Always lost? Here’s a built-in excuse

Are you the type of person constantly asking yourself where the hell you are? Can’t read a road sign to save your life and if your GPS broke you might end up in the lake? Well don’t worry, it’s not your fault – a group of professors seem to believe that the problem lies in your genetic code. They call it Williams Syndrome and claim it’s a chromosomal disorder in which there is specific deficiency…. whatever, I don’t really care because it’s total bullshit. Listen to the demographic of people who may suffer from this terrible disorder: “Individuals with Williams syndrome have strong language skills and are extremely social, but they have trouble with tasks like doing puzzles or copying patterns or navigating their bodies through the physical world.” They’ve just described toddlers. It’s hard to believe that there isn’t a better utilization for these professors’ time and resources than to make up excuses for people who simply tend to daze off. This is coming from a man who finds himself doing more U-turns than I’d like to admit and I can tell you first hand it’s not due to a genetic deficiency. In a world where somebody will make an excuse for just about anything- If you find yourself getting lost all time it’s not because you lack a chromosome, it’s because you’re not paying attention. Put down the damn cell phone and keep your eyes on the road because somewhere there are college kids paying very good money for professors to research for answers that make no sense for a problem they invented in the first place.

    Thanks for publishing about this. There’s a bunch of solid tech info on the internet. You’ve got a lot of that info here on your website. I’m impressed – I try to keep a couple blogs fairly up-to-date, but it’s a struggle sometimes. You’ve done a big job with this one. How do you do it?
