I love how people will spend hours reading yelp to find the best tacos in town, searching for the cheapest flights for their next vacation, looking for costume accessories on etsy, comparing reviews of their next phone upgrade or amazon purchase, yet base their vote for leader of the free world on facebook rants and memes.
