“Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo, is the longest sentence you can create using only endangered species.”
That’s Lewis Mitchell Neeff’s latest Twitter posting.
It’s an experiment he calls the Adrenal Fatigue Project, a satire on the pointless blurbs of misinformation that the Internet constantly bombards us with, inducing a heightened awareness and fatigue.
In other words, Neeff is intentionally trying to stress out his followers — about nothing — while simultaneously making them stop and become aware of what is happening on a larger scale on their computer screen. Some alternative medicine practitioners are reporting a rise in what they call “adrenal fatigue,” from too much perceived (not actual) stress, too many alerts and too much information.
