I could go on of course, but there is one mystery that has heretofore remained unsolved. It has haunted mankind and womankind for years and years... in fact some of the world's greatest minds have continually been baffled by it. Research has proven to be inconclusive.
I have discovered the origin, the birth, the genesis if you will... of social media.
Social media has consumed us, it has permeated every aspect of our lives and it's only fitting that we know just where it all started.
Social media means many things to many people but it is, in its purest form, the coming together of people to share information, no matter how mundane, trivial, life-altering, life-affirming, newsworthy, etc it may be.
The operative word when it comes to social media... is sharing.
And that ladies and gentlemen of the jury is how I came about my prodigious discovery.
I give you now, in all it's blazing glory, the origin of social media:
Yes, I know... I know. How did I EVER make such an astonishing discovery? Well I'd like to say it took years and cost millions of lives (Animal House reference) but no, it was probably watching TV Land or some channel which showed old commercials.
But as soon as I saw it... I knew it. THIS is the beginning. This is where it all started. So when you're talking to your friends or family and the subject of social media comes up, impress them by telling them you know where it all started... shampoo.
Now with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, I am going to move on to my next mystery to solve... If the police arrest a mime-artist, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?
