Commenter Of The Day: Cognitive Dissonance Edition

A friend of ours has a good friend who, previously, worked for a now defunct newspaper from the Rocky Mountain region. We won't say which one, but you can probably figure it out. If you follow the news, you'll know the paper folded and almost everyone was "let go" to use the Cliffhanger-esque jargon of the times. This person is out of a job. What does a professional journalist who just lost their career in professional journalism do? They get a job at a local college teaching the next generation of soon-to-be-axed newspaper journalists. This is an example of cognitive dissonance: the act of harboring simultaneous, contradictory beliefs. Today, when we asked you what's the worst aftermarket exterior upgrade, commenter Ealexand responded with a delightful bit of cognitive dissonance.
