The N of Us
Ep. 8 The Impulse Buy
photo by Lyza on Flickr. This is the story of two shopping malls and the men behind them - the men who manipulate our surroundings in such a way that we can't help but impulse buy. One lulls us into submission so we buy on the way out. The other dazzles us so much that we have to buy in order to get out. And this, naturally, leads to theme parks. The mouse-father of them all. The Gimme Episode. Go on, gimme.
