><buy product X><product X is cool><mock people who are not cool>
><buy product X><product X works><tell other people about product X>

But- this list is only the tip of the iceberg. The fact that entire
cultures rise and fall under the surface is the single most daunting
aspect of memetic analytic endeavors.

When one buys and uses a brand name product, one has been infected by a
colossal memescape. How much of it came on board at one time? Good
question. But adverts are hardly sterile. They are remarkably fecund.

It is practically rape....
