2:50 for the KO. Otherwise this is just a really boring video of two assholes trying to get punched in the head and failing.
I got one of these the other day: guy came up to me saying I was messing with his girl and I immediately knew it was a prank. I've been in situations where I was messing with someone's girl and that's when you get clothespinned by someone on their bike. Sadly, I didn't know I she was married. Anyway, live and learn. And then get luvs. Glad he got clocked for saying the N word. Not cool.
sorry :) I was a comparative lit major so usually when I start to type something I can't stop. Except for right now. Which I'll do later. First let me tell you about something. The year was 1994...
These clips have appeared here before. Are they evil? I suppose. But calling someone a nigger and getting popped in the face is pretty much what I would expect. I fail to see the "prank" aspect of this.

Millennials do suck, but "The Greatest Generation" is responsible for far more misery, just FYI.
Huh. I've been on the side of the Boomers, who most people blame for the lack of jobs and the downfall of economic society that leads to millennials like myself doing stupid shit like this, but in reality are working into their late 60s to try to support their struggling-for-work kids, but I haven't heard the Greatest Generation argument. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just interested.
My take on it: the fine young men who marched through Europe to stop Hitler grew into the middle aged men who turned the hoses on Civil Rights marchers, and helped push the Republican Party into the far right crankdom that we as a nation need to escape if we hope to survive. (And with global climate change that becomes a literal concern rather than just a national / political one.)
Not everyone of the WWII generation is/was a shitheel by any stretch of the imagination, but shitheels were well represented, and have caused more than their share of harm.
Baby Boomers catch a lot of flak for buying into the Reagan dream, and not living up to the peace and love that some segment of their generation preached. I guess I can see that, but I don't take it on faith that Gen X / Gen Y / Gen Whatever / Millennials would be any different if they hadn't been handed a shit sandwich of an economy.
I have an extension to correct "millennials" to "Pesky Whipper-Snappers". It paid off here.
The Greatest Generation were pretty badly damaged by the War. Think about all those fucked up vets you know ( sorry guys, I loves you all but you know killing folks makes otherwise good people fucked up. ). Multiply that by an entire generation, and there you go.
With that excuse in hand, the thing that is most shocking about the GG is how much the government did for them. I mean, America was a socialist utopia for these people. So it's gallling that these same folks are so adament about how future generations need to be self reliant "like they were". Seriously, you'd really be shocked at what was done, and is done, for them. No future American generation will ever have it as good as they had it. That's a pity, because it didn't have to be that way.
The Boomers? Just fucktards, all of them. Even today's youth are less fucktarded then them, which is difficult for me to wrap my head around. But there you go.
If I have any complaints about todays youth, it is simply that they are so boring and trite. Like this clip. This is a prank? It's just stupid. But I can think of worse sins.
By the way, I'm 32, so I'm basically at the very high end of one nation's definition of "Millennial" In other nations I think I'm still.. I don't know. Generational definitions don't define who people are or what they accomplish. For me, I wish I was born 5 to ten years after, not sold the farm on a website when I could've been part of a billion dollar industry like a good friend of mine who was one of the founders of Facebook, things like that. I wish I didn't have to think about next month's rent at the beginning of the month and work doors for bands who might get enough money for the show to pay for gas to get to the next one. What my dad tells me when I go off like this (who is a Boomer) is "at least you didn't have the draft breathing down your throat." Bill Clinton was also in that number, basically a lottery called by name. The entire platoon my father would've been in was more-or-less killed, the ones who survived without legs and arms. So I'm very fortunate to be on planet earth in the first place.
My dad (and a lot of millennial's dads) continue to work long after retirement age not out of concern for themselves, but concern for those of us who ponder how they're going to look after their own dads while making 11.50 an hour, "trying to make something new" and playing shows, like my own, with sometimes more people on stage than in the crowd.
Don't forget that rent has continued to increase ahead of inflation for decades despite falling wages. Nothing makes me laugh harder these days than reading an article that was obviously written by a boomer giving the whole budget advice chestnut "Rent shouldn't exceed one-third of your take home pay."
Heh yeah. When I was in Madison (first place where I didn't live under my parents' roof) I turned out living in a house maybe three blocks away from where they lived in the 60s. Besides a few side projects I was making 5.75 an hour. It was a few blocks from the football stadium so we'd rent out the front lawn as parking space and that would cover our rent for a month so the rest was, well I was a happy camper. My parents' house was a large duplex that they paid less than 100 per month on and the owners decided to sell it, making it a regular house. Same thing happened with me. I got curious so I looked it up but both houses are valued at around 800 thousand dollars, a number I can't come close to fathoming.
I'm in the process of leaving my current spot. It's a bit of a gophering: by neighborhood's "hip" but I moved in because the rent for this shithole was 685 for a 2 bedroom. I was making 11.50 and due to a wage freeze (THANKS NONPROFITS!) to stay in the black. I was stuck at 11.50. Older people (who probably didn't work as hard as I did but that's a different story) were complaining because they'd be stuck at about 60,000 a year. They had kids, a house, things that I could never dream of or ever hope for (I don't care I like apartment living and sofa surfing) but I had to work four times harder because they quit and found other jobs in arts admin, leaving me there having to "fix" the executive director's printer (did you try unplugging it) and delivering sheet music via bike instead of wasting money on the company van. All the time my rent was increasing, usually by about 100 per year, and is now going up to 1300. When they laid me off it wasn't the worst thing in the world: I was stressed the fuck out, so stressed that it kind of helped ruin my marriage. So my new jobs pay about the same, but I can't afford the place where "young hip people" like myself made "cool" anymore.
I'm lucky because unlike a lot of my friends, if I need a safety net, "going home" means a few miles from my spot and not a few thousand miles, and while I'm not doing that (do you know how hard it is to try and bring a girl over to your parents' place when you're 32?) I do feel fairly fucked by the system. I think it was on here, but they used to have those posters in my school where it was an artist covered with paint on one side and a car mechanic on the other covered in oil. At the bottom it showed what their work accomplished, and asked "which one would you rather be?" I chose music, art, all that. I also consciously majored in fields where I knew I'd be making little above poverty wages unless I struck oil. I was having lunch with my father and he said he has a lot of guilt for his boomer generation: They wanted us to be those Woodstock archetypes, the ones that would change the world, do their own thing, etc. and for the most part they've ended up like me: cynical, financially distressed, and seeing the very notion of "higher education" like Mount Doom itself.
The bitter "I feel like I'm smart and should make lots of money but I have a shit work ethic and made poor decisions in regards to my education" crowd is really vocal around here, huh? Why do I know so many mid-to-late 20 somethings who have good jobs, are buying houses, starting families etc. when you guys make it sound like if you're under 40 your destiny is poverty regardless of what you do? I understand the economy is weak and we all got straddled with huge amounts of student loan debt, but when you signed up for a shit degree you forfeited your right to complain about your shit pay. Millenials suck indeed.

Why would you show this to other people?
I don't get it either. What's weird is that canvassers do this too to collect signatures. Same day I was "pranked" (I just walked away) I was asked by some attractive girl if I wanted to hang out again. I'm like "what? I don't really do that kind of thing where I don't remember.. do I know you or do you have me confused with someone else?" she says "I can't remember your name. Can you write it down on this piece of paper?" At least some millennials like me are saving the universe, in one way or another. I still didn't give her my real name so long Antarctica.
I have no idea what retarded thing chancho is attempting to imply, but if it has anything to do with racism you might as well call mother theresa a human slave trafficker and be just as accurate.
They think it's edgy because they go to black neighbourhoods and try to provoke fights. That's why they post it, not because it's particularly funny.
Oh shit, I got a black guy mad!

I was hoping they had punch him harder.
I was hoping they caved his head in with a hammer and then smeared his brains on the nostrils of his loved ones.

This has nothing to do with millennials. Stupid, annoying, creatively void people were around in every generation, they just didn't have the internet around to encourage them.
I've always assumed those old 'Candid Camera'-type shows had loads and loads of footage they didn't use where people got beaten up.
|dairyqueenlatifah - 2014-05-18 |
Sorry, but I don't see any pranks here. All I see are idiots running up to strangers and intentionally calling them insulting names, getting physically belligerent and starting some shit, then predictably getting punched for it.

Not nearly enough blood for me.
