There’s a great YouTube channel called “What Could Go Wrong?” with videos of people attempting everyday tasks that go hilariously wrong.
It’s a great avenue for content because we all tend to trip ourselves up by imagining the worst. This is our worst fears come true — but it’s funny because it’s someone else.
The amygdala — our inner eeyore — is primed to fantasize about the worst case scenarios.
So we often spin our wheels in a turmoil of deaths and disaster that only rarely occur.
Life is random as hell. But far too infrequently we ask ourselves the other side of that coin: What Could Go Right?
And the list of things under that is even longer than the one under “WCGW.”
