"If You Smell Something, Say Something"

The best defense against bullshit is vigilance. Learn to recognize the three types of contemporary bullshit:

1. Making bad things sound like good things.

2. Hiding the bad things under mountains of complexity.

3. The bullshit of infinite possibility: "We can't do anything because we don't yet know everything."

Goodbye, Jon. You improved our sense of smell.
