Two Bits of Confusion.

I found this comment on a blog post tonight:

‘Amazing insight. All that glitters isn’t gold, and all that doesn’t glitter is not.’

I get confused easily these days. I think my brain cells need a polish. Maybe I need a hobby...


And while I’m on the subject of confusion, I caught a few seconds of a TV advert in which Rachel Weisz was apparently (I had the sound off) extolling the virtues of some overpriced chemical concoction made by those animal torturers at L’Oreal. I gather people regard Rachel Weisz as beautiful. How can they tell? Has anybody ever seen her unpainted? Genuine question.

I was confused by that comment too, but it makes sense once you wrap your head around it.

I agree that, albeit badly expressed, the logic can be followed. 'Making sense,' on the other hand, is a different matter. My suspicion is that the commenter was attempting to curry favour with the blog author.
