It will make more sense when you get a professional job and you see how it is in the corporate world.
Cena_mark
There are no professional jobs left for her generation. The Boomers and Xers sent them all to India. Youtube is one of the few things we millenials have to make a living with.

dairyqueenlatifah
Oh come now Cena, you know that's...only half true.

Oscar Wildcat
Well if you think about it a bit Cena, it's the basic point she is making. That is, that evil is not sustainable in the long term.

Google "Prisoners Dilemma" for more information about this crucial little thought experiment. Outside of a very recent and somewhat questionable claim, no one has proved a competitive strategy that is sustainable.

For those so afflicted with advanced cases of Post Modernism, this is about as close as science gets to defining Good and Evil in practical terms. Do consider it.

Cena_mark
Just like our economic system.

5 starring to feed this beast. This is more satisfying than 5 starring Tim and Eric videos. That war got old.

The Sith are great because they're basically fucking Space Juggalos. They can't shut up about how evil and edgy and bad they are, even as they continue to make monumentally stupid choices.

"So our main law is built around the fact that we inevitably murder each other. By the way our entire population is two people."
"Have you considered not murdering each other."
"NO, BECAUSE WE'RE NOT A BUNCH OF PUSSIES."
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
The Sith were good bad-guys in KOTOR. There was a lot of them, and they pretty much seemed to be space-libertatrians or space-anarchists (same thing). They simply wanted to do whatever they felt like. Theyre schtick is basically "I adhere to, uh, that ideology that lets me do whatever I want!, yeah that one!"
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
The only problem is space-anarchism instantly collapses into space-despotism :(

Lurchi
man I was so evil in that game I swore off being evil in video games

Quad9Damage
The KOTOR writers did a good job of depicting the Sith as simply having an opposing ideology rather than being the scum of the universe. But man you could do some monstrous shit in that game. I'm trying to remember, because my CD-ROM install no longer works for more than 20 seconds, but I think going pure Dark Side ran the gauntlet from picking the meanest dialogue options to leaving entire planets as burning, polluted husks in your wake. My dude was a pure Jedi samurai. Being a jerk made me feel bad.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
I was as good as possible in that game. Like
"Oh thankyou jedi youve saved my farm! Please take this reward"
"Nonsense! I need no reward, in fact, here take my shoes!!"
I was really into being a 'good jedi' it actually started manifesting irl, I was really into doing good deeds. For example, I had just been playing the game and left apt building to head into college and just outside the building there was a woman in a motorized wheelchair that had run out of batteries asking for help, to which i was delighted to help. I pushed her back to her place which was like a mile away, also the wheels didnt turn so it was dragging across the ground the whole way and was hard to push.

Lurchi
EE Smith and Edmond Hamilton did all this stuff first...a long time ago (Lucas combined it with Kurosawa which was a genius move)

Lurchi
For maximum evil at the end of KotOR you can order your wookie companion to murder his best friend, a naive teenage girl who has followed you loyally from the beginning of the game. He cannot refuse because of his life debt to you.

SolRo
I'm glad someone attractive finally had this thought, it's not like anyone over the age of 10 noticed the same thing fairly quickly
poorwill
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. SolRo joining the crusade. Way to take a brave stand against this accursed female and her womanly wiles, you worthless pile of shit.

SolRo
You're one of those idiots that thinks any criticism of women is sexist.

I'm one of those crazy assholes that gives shit to sexist men and criticizes talentless women that get by on looks alone.


Fuck all "subscribe to my channel because i'm pretty" types, of all genders and sexual orientations.

poorwill
Wow, you seem upset that your internalised misogyny has been exposed. But then it's often the ones who protest the loudest who have the most to hide.

SolRo
I LIKE THIS GIRL, DONT CRITICISE THIS GURL!

MIIIIINE!!!!!!

Quad9Damage
I couldn't watch her for more than a minute because of that jump cut editing shtick. I turn off anybody who does that, male or female.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious
enough of your internet crush
kingarthur
You guys are sexist downers. That she's female and attractive has zero to do with whether or not she's funny. You just don't like it that A GIRL (COOOOOTIES!) is in your nerd fanboy club wrecking your shit.

simon666
Long live the king.

poorwill
They're fucking scum, kingarthur. Posting this was so worth it to see SolRo out himself as a sexist piece of shit tho.

SolRo
Is it okay if I don't find her funny?

Can I have your guys permission to have an opinion about a pretty girl you like?

SolRo
Yes poorwill, I'm sexist.

even after all the shit I've given to our local gamergaters, me not liking your e-crush makes me a sexist

poorwill
fuck off with your redpill dogshit, you fraud

SolRo
she'll totally have sex with you because you blindly defend her hack routine on the internet, just keep trying and she'll notice yoU!


Monkey Napoleon
If only I could get her in my apartment and feed her eggs, then we could have amazingly insightful discussions about how there are flaws in fictional universes.

And then maybe we'd fuck.

Man, she is great, amirite?

Fart.

For whatever it's worth, I've been reading that Alt-Right "Star Wars" fans are adept at missing what five-year-olds have been intuitively grasping for decades now: the Empire is bad because it oppresses and kills people who were otherwise just minding their own business. To Alt-Right types, there are no political messages of any kind in "Star Wars", not even the tacit premise that tyranny is a condition to be condemned and resisted by decent people.

I'm wondering if Jenny here is going through a related form of retardation. I say, if the Dark Side doesn't make sense, it's because it's a movie for children and the Dark Side are there just so the heroes have a ruthless evil force to challenge and eventually best. It's like wondering who does the Kurgan's dry-cleaning because when you think about it his clothes would get dirty a lot.
kingarthur
I agree to a point. I think they are movies for children and that you're totally right about the amount of motivational depth that goes into it on that level. I guess you could say I take it a step further and have an "Alan Moore" type problem with Star Wars fandom where adults salivate and theorize about it and even try to apply it to life in the real world. I dig Jenny's schtick here because she offers an entertaining deconstruction of that while putting on a disguise of false naiveté.

kingarthur
Also, from what I've seen, the alt-right nerds seem to think The Empire "did nothing wrong". I don't know how they arrive at that, I think there's some extended universe nonsense about the Empire being totalitarian and militaristic in order to prepare the galaxy for a greater threat from outside, but I dislike Star Wars so that's literally more thought than I've ever put into it outside of mocking it.

kingarthur
It may also just be that, at root, the alt right are just a bunch of contrarian sycophants.

Bort
I heard that, in the Jim Carrey "Grinch" movie, they tried to give the Grinch a motivation, like the Whoville assholes ran him out of town or something. Thus the bad guys become sympathetic characters, right is wrong, and being a racist shitbag is justified because people are mean to racists.

Doomstein
The Kurgan probably made that motel manager he almost choked out run his dry cleaning. Also he wears sleeveless t-shirts and track pants when he's not wearing his Mad Max Venus in Furs gear, so it's probably not THAT bad.

Caminante Nocturno
Apparently it was too much trouble for you to find an ugly girl who talks about the same thing, but you're going to call everyone else a sexist?
kingarthur
Isn't ranking someone's presentation by their physical features sexist on either end of the scale?

Seriously, I just happened upon her videos though and found them funny. I only submitted three, choosing not to deluge the hopper with them as I figured the rest of POE would either glom on to her or not and leave something for others to submit. But I suppose if you can find an ugly girl just as funny, go ahead and submit her videos, dude.

kingarthur
Honestly her looks had nothing to do with why I submitted three of her videos. I just thought she was funny and I appreciate an entertaining deconstruction of nerd culture.

kingarthur
But if you want to see her kind of address sexism in nerd culture, she has a brief but insightful deconstruction of Padme from the prequels on her channel.

Caminante Nocturno
I'm not ranking her on her features, I'm ranking you on your internalized misogyny. You easily could have found a fat or ugly girl who said the same shallow, facile garbage this one does, but you had to go with some stereotypical pretty nerd instead.

poorwill
we get hideous men who post shallow, facile garbage like this and it's widely liked here (see: RLM etc). why the site-wide meltdown now that it's a pretty (I guess - I think she could stand to be hotter tbqh) girl?

SolRo
I also dislike some of the stuff RLM posts.

IM SO SEXIST!!

poorwill
how convenient for you that this flat-chested 7/10 (at best) is suddenly the peak of womanhood. it's clear now it's just so you can throw a rage fit about how unfunny she is and how she only gets views because she's a total babe and you want to bone her. you reek of woman-hating closeted fag, honestly.

SolRo
only one throwing a rage fit around here is you

NewHeavenSockman
this is some penny arcade level nerd deconstruction humor but holy shit some of you are being weird about this
SolRo
SHE'S A GIRL! A PRETTY GIRL! YOU HAVE TO LIKE HER!

poorwill
Have the standards for female beauty fallen so low among you virgins that this limp, breastless stick of gun is somehow attractive? She's as hot as she is funny - that is to say, kind of, I guess - but you assholes had to go bonkers berserko over this because you caught a whiff of estrogen. Shame on you, but especially you SolRo, you absolute cunt.
poorwill
That should be 'stick of gum'. Anyway, the point is: fuck SolRo.

SolRo
MUST DEFEND GURL!

GURL PRETTY!

IF DEFEND ENOUGH, WILL GET SEXY TIME!!!!

SolRo
(I would also like to point out how stupid you are, because you just admitted she's not very pretty or very funny but you're still giving her videos 5 stars and spazzing out calling everyone sexist for thinking her videos aren't very funny)

poorwill
After this I'm going to need proof that you're straight.

SolRo
ask your mom.

poorwill
My mother and this ironing board? Yeah, I'm totally convinced you are straight now.

SolRo
so you're a homophobe going around calling people sexist?

man, you are fucked up.

SolRo
You need to clarify your stance.

You think she's ugly enough that we cant dismiss her based on "she's just getting attention for being pretty"

And then you also think she's so pretty that because I don't like her I must be gay.

John Holmes Motherfucker
You guys know there's porn on the internet, right?

cognitivedissonance
Well Satan's long term goals are pointless and self-defeating. He has no hope of ever actually beating God, so on a long enough timeline he's a momentary inconvenience. Obviously within the internal logic of Christianity, his goal is to deny God worshippers, which doesn't do anything to diminish the presence of God. It's merely that within the concepts as outlined by the Church, those people weren't going to worship God anyway assuming they had access to free will and literally any other alternative. There's no end goal in Satan's plan that has any sort of victory condition for him.
Two Jar Slave
Milton gave Satan the motivation of wanting to hurt God's feelings by fucking up his greatest creation, us. That works for me, but it's expanded universe so you'll have to make your own call.

Maggot Brain
The Sith are basically praying mantises, got it.
bawbag
Jesus, these comments.
Nikon
Maybe some midichlorians tend to favor positive energy and others favor negative energy. It all depends on the kind of relationship the Force users have with their parasites. Qui Gonn Jinn probably got them to enjoy both Light and Dark Side energy and that's how he became a Grey Jedi.
blue vein steel
The world clearly needs more 20-somethings pointing out obvious plot holes and inconsistencies in children's movies
Robin Kestrel
The whole politics of the Star Wars universe is poorly thought-out. It's a mess that Lucas seemed to be making up on the fly.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Watched it with the sound down. No one's going to get this reference, but her face looks like the talking Grandfather Clock on Captain Kangaroo.
Lurchi
still nostalgic about erections, eh?

betamaxed
Stars for all the comments coming from grown ass people who should know better.
poorwill
There is no fucking WAY SolRo knows better.
