You have to think like a pessimist. I can make any plant bloom on
command, but you have to ask what exactly that command is. If I command
that a California poppy bloom sometime in the early spring, it will do
so. I can also make some some blooms have fragrance. Witness roses. I
did that. Don't believe me? Prove I didn't.
Of course I'm being absurd, but you have to look at ads that way. All
ads. There's no such thing as an honest marketing droid.
