Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, September 11, 2021

So am I the only one who spied this headline from “O, The Oprah Magazine” (by way of the CNN.com feed):

Outta here! Professional purgers’ organizing tips

And think, not of helpful hints from so-called household clutter advisors, but rather of something relating to pro-anorexia advocates?

I think the trigger-word is “purge”. The binge-and-purge dynamic became a Large Social Issue during my adolescence, and later morphed into a warped support network. At this point, I find it hard to not associate eating disorders with the P-word.

Still, I sorta wonder just what sort of lifehacking organizational advice a serial vomiter could impart. And yeah, go ahead and infer the esophagal connotation of the word “hack” there…
