    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    It’s just a new fancy term that marketing people came up with.....dramatic. Sorta like weather people coming up with terms like polar vortex or bomb cyclone.....etc

    Yup. After watching enough guests on Ridiculousness, I've learned that purely a marketing front for a brand to say "hey, like, we're all about love, and loving each other, and doing what you love to do, you know?" (millennial audience then clapping wildly)

    ... when in reality it's just a ploy to get young people loyal to their product and make more money because only 1% of businesses out to change the world truly mean it. The rest (*cough* Stern *cough*) are just in it for the money.

    Quoted from DaveH:

    I put it closer to 100% of businesses are just in it for the money

    I mean, it's a very cynical view. I think there are companies out there that need profit to stay afloat but also are in it to do some good.

    I just wish Stern would explain what this "lifestyle" is and what it incorporates. It's BS just to use a buzz term and not mean it or explain it.

    This thread is starting to confuse “lifestyle” and “hobby” too much.

    Eating well and exercising daily is a lifestyle.

    Base jumping, skydiving, and living everyday to the fullest is a lifestyle.

    For 99.8% of the people on this site, myself included, Pinball is a F’ing hobby.
