I also think it will help you better understand why I am “wasting my time on this stuff.” I won’t beat around the bush. What has been done with Oprah’s comment is art. Art that is AWESOME to me, but totally stupid to the untrained eye. Let me give you a reverse example. I just found a Wikipedia article titled [“List of most expensive paintings”].

On the surface that seems like… I don’t even know what else to say but “WHAT THE FUCK?!?” I know that there must be some kind of historical significance to the piece, the choice of colors must have been awesome and God must have signed the back but… It still doesn’t make much sense to me. This video does (and it was free! 😀 ):
