#ThisIsAPyramidScheme

John Oliver spent an extended segment on his show last night dismantling one of the banes of my existence: So-called "multi-level marketing" plans, which are glorified pyramid schemes dressed up in nicer clothes, and which I've repeatedly over the last fifteen years or so had friends and family get caught up in while swearing up and down that they aren't, in fact, pyramid schemes (they're totally pyramid schemes). The segment is a half-hour long, so a bit of a commitment, but well worth your time. And afterwords, spread the word and let people know: #ThisIsAPyramidScheme!
