6–1/2 Things You Must Glomph or Else You’re Missing Out (!!!)

How did my Medium feed get filled with FOMO clickbait?

A haystack shaped like a squirrel. Because pictures somehow yield more views or likes or something.
I googled “random image” and picked this.

What 2022 needs is a bit more snark. Less predictability.

Fewer headlines that read like A/B tested versions of “12 Things Boba Fett Said to Adele’s Landscaper That Will Surprise You.”

I mean, I’m gonna click on that, but you can’t make me like it.

Happy New Year!
