They say never judge a book by its cover, but... like ... isn't that what cover art and descriptions are literally for?

To allow you to judge that book by its cover?


Reddit user crazythumper7 asked :

"What can someone put on their car that makes you know immediately that they’re a douchebag?"

And listen, I know what we were all told, but adding stuff to your car is communicating extra data and what is the purpose of data if not to analyze?

And isn't judgment part of analysis?

And don't people put stuff on their cars like this???
