In recent years, millennials have given rise to “content marketing”, a bullshit term that essentially means, look for what other people are doing, copy them, and do the same thing, but bigger and louder. Sort of like the internet version of cock-blocking. .
"Content marketing, another term that just makes my balls wanna crawl back up inside every time I hear it."

Google loves you. Let me rephrase that, Google loves your money.
Have you ever wondered how companies like Google and YouTube stay afloat? That’s easy; advertising! you see, Google and YouTube, at their core, are advertising companies. They piggyback ads on “content” which is just another generic name given to virtually anything that has the potential to keep your eyeballs on the screen long enough to see the ads.

Odds are you’ve seen them and their bullshit pitches and collection of even shiftier generic catch phrases. Terms like, “optimization” and “engagement” serve to dumb people down and generalize things like human interaction so they can appear more important that they really are. These people suck the life out of what was once human interaction. Now, it’s just a bunch of assholes hiding behind their computer screens doing whatever it takes to avoid a real job.
How many times can you talk about the same damn thing? Well, if you take the recent string of demonetized YouTube videos, for example, quite a bit, actually. Gotta milk that cow dry, don’t you know, or someone else will.
Creativity and human interaction seems to be going the way of the dinosaur, and I for one am damn pissed about it. But that doesn’t matter, as long as people can step on one another and make a buck, since that seems to be the only thing anyone gives a shit about in this society – at least, thats the impression we get from these internet bull-shitters…and Google will be right there to not only promote that shit, but capitalize on it as well.
What a F.U.Q.D.U.P. world.
