Term of the Day: Effort Shock

While visiting www.imdb.com  I came across a link titled, “How the Karate Kid Ruined the Modern World” and I figured wherever I wound up I would find a mildly amusing read. The link opened to the website for Cracked magazine and my prejudice kicked in and all hope for amusement curled up and quietly died.

However, with a title such as this how could I not attempt to read this article? In just a paragraph my snobbish instincts had to admit this was an insightful and well written article. Did I mention this is on the website for Cracked magazine?

This article is about  our perceptions of reality and how most of us have unrealistic expectations. It’s worth a gander.
