Question I'm almost afraid to ask but . . .

. . . what do they mean by "NOT TERRORIST"?!

Kind of strange, isn't it? Or am I overreacting?

I saw that to, and thought, "thats odd"

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

You guys realize that you all look at that because it catches your eye... which is exactly what those titles are meant to do. They make you go "wait a second".. then you get curious, then you click the link, then BOOM your buying a fish. That's how marketing works

It's a thing that makes you wonder then you look at it and might buy it. That is why a lot of people write in capitals to attract your attention.

Aha. Kind of a weird thing to use for a marketing ploy, but whatever works, I guess.

Strange, right? We only use 10% of our brain so the other part would be useful.
