12:58AM, in the comments to the previous post, left this link, so I thought I'd embed the video here. Thanks 12:58.
The skating is sublime. As to the music, thank GOD their competitive program choices don't resemble anything they do in shows. Enough already with this quasi-acoustical wispy shit.
Periodically I follow Jessica Dube's social media, and of course encounter her inspirational quotes or her "this is me" memes - we know the kind. "Your faults are beautiful and compelling, they're like patina on a painting, it's how you know you're alive, etc." Came across this article:
If you share deep quotes on social media odds are you have a low IQ
The linked article addresses a study out of the University of Waterloo called: "On the reception and detection of pseudo-profound bullshit."
(It's actually a decent paper. Here's the pdf: On the reception and detection of pseudo profound bullshit. The researchers used this website: New Age Bullshit Generator)
I believe the study bears out my own impressions of the relative intelligence of Scott's fake girlfriends. In descending order: Kaitlyn Lawes, Cassandra Hilborn, Jessica Dube.
Don't know if Hilborn is closer to Lawes or Dube in the brainpower spectrum. I suspect she might have used her pseudo profound quotes about love and life as a lazy fake girlfriend's formula for keeping up appearances.
|What if her face freezes like that?|
Most people with this facial expression
HAVE frozen their faces like that.
Jessica just uses filters on the brow furrows
to get that desired bad plastic surgery effect.
