Hooray for People --- Part 5: Online Reviews

Man I just love people. As I read through all the Amazon reviews, trying to pick out a shower curtain, it occurs to me how lucky I am to live on a planet where these amazing creatures take time out of their busy schedules to go online and provide detailed product reviews. These people don't get paid. They've already bought the product, so don't directly benefit from their efforts. It's one of humanity's few truly selfless acts.

If you watch the local news a lot, you may be getting discouraged by the behavior of your fellow humans. To restore your faith in people, log in to Amazon and start sifting through all the user product reviews. There's reviews on everything, from toothpaste to adult diapers. They are detailed, informative, and sometimes really funny.

For every evil person who goes around shooting people, there are millions of good people writing reviews for strangers.

Here's a sample from my morning search:

...all in all i'm pleased with price & purchase. i wanted clear curtains because i am old and live alone so if i fall in tub as i lay there for several days i'll be able to look around. 

********************************************
after about a week of showering (much to cats relief) i will change what i said above about billowy curtains.. perhaps it was that the curtains were new & stiff so they didn't adhere to tub but now with humidity the curtains have relaxed (how i feel with a cocktail) and stick to wall and tub properly...but it is kinda unnerving standing "exposed' with clear curtain. my cats stare.......and they sometimes laugh

i just realized that i neglected to say what the yellow arrow in photo is pointing at..those are a pair of my massive bloomers that i suppose i'd be able to use as a blanket should i truly end up laying in tub for days

Ignore negative reviews. It's a shower curtain.

Some people...
Who the @#% complains when a shower curtain liner gets mold on it after A YEAR?!
Clean your @#$% bathroom more often, get some ventilation, change your liner again and don't be such a cheapskate. You paid eight bucks for a curtain liner. How long did you expect it to last?

This shower curtain liner is everything I ever wanted in a shower curtain liner.
(But clearly, I have low standards ;)

No matter how wise you think ants, dolphins and dogs are, you never see any of them offering feedback online. Not one! Humans are glorious, giving, and sometimes even glamorous. Hooray for people!
