I want someone to invent a way for me to punch people right in the voice.

Wow, he's really trying to have Glenn Beck's physical mannerisms and delivery, isn't he?
I don't know if he's completely representative of an entire generation. Watch some of his other videos and know that he is a wingnut.

As an educator with a PhD who sometimes worries in the lonely hours that his job is pointless, this boy gives me hope and energy and inspiration.
Ignorant fuck, you make me want to go out and teach even better.

The flaw in your logic, kiddo, is that all this information never did fall from the fucking sky, it is constantly being updated and supplemented by people more useful to society than yourself who have actually learned a thing or two on their own. You are essentially nibbling their regurgitation off the floor.

Let me tell you all how I dropped out of school because it was interfering with my education of eating Cocoa Puffs and playing Smash Brothers all day.
|Comrade Admiral - 2010-03-11 |
Hey broseph, you know what education is still good for?
Teaching you how to form theses that aren't facile tautology-riddled lumps of shit.
You haven't met many PhDs, have you?

He fails to account for the possibility that he doesn't know the depth of what he doesn't know.

You want to know what most people use the internet for? Pornography and trying to validate their life-worth through posted photos on social networking sites. This is what human minds have put the internet to use with.

I lol'd. Hes the stoned sophomore roommate who didnt have older friends to tell him how stupid he sounds.
No, sophomores have typically had a semester of English comp and maybe intro to philosophy. This guy uses "begs the question" wrong within the first 30 seconds, so I doubt he's had either.
|memedumpster - 2010-03-11 |
Looks like he got a hole in his space pod.

Oh no I got an education at a public university and never read the textbooks, this means information is worthless now.
Sometimes I worry that my university is given respect based on its pricetag rather than its quality. This man confirms that my worries are baseless.

The internet is a big echo chamber where you start with what you're mostly sure of and argue with slightly dumber people in order to reinforce it further.

I watched with this playing in the background at it wasn't so bad...

Son of a bitch, I knew a guy like this in college - same speech patterns and everything. Always going on about how college was just BULLSHIT that "The Man" (he said in a way where you heard the capital letters) was trying to force on you.
So why he was attending, I don't know. I mean, he made a big deal about how he was makin' it through college on his own, through his own sweat and effort and everybody else there was just a spoiled trust-fund baby if they got so much as a few dollars now and then from their parents...the guy was an obnoxious ball of contradictions.

"Hey there, Youtubers! I'M TOO STUPID TO LEARN, and here is my list of amazing reasons for why this means I'm better than anybody who isn't!"
|Kieran27 - 2010-03-12 |
Wow... So many errors in his logic, so much smarm crammed into a few minutes. I had to go to his channel to check out his other videos, and in one of his earliest videos (after your get through his many videos on how to solve the Rubik's cube) is one where he tells VenomFangX his argument for proving God is wrong.
Oh, and this fellow mentions both his parents are pastors. Somehow, this comes as no surprise....

The internets are are not just for porn?

STOP EDITING EVERY ONE OF YOUR SENTENCES TOGETHER YOU FUCKING SMUG SHITFACE
I suspect he recorded it once, in bits - say the sentence quickly, move, settle, check yourself in the screen, take a few breaths, say the next sentence, repeat. Then he just had to cut out all the in-between bits.
Yeah, for some reason hat sounded really innovative in my head, but looks less so in print.

It doesn't "beg" the question, it "raises" it. Learn the difference, you schmuck.

"Now, to continue my education... www.wikiped..."
|citrusmirakel - 2010-03-12 |
Has nobody really mentioned yet that his name is Dan Brown?
Because his name is Dan Brown. And he's an idiot.
That begs SOME question, doesn't it?
|ashtar. - 2015-05-09 |
It's not... that's not... what...
What you're supposed to be learning is not just "facts," but also how to make sense of information. Sure you can read Moby Dick or Plato or scientific journal articles on the interwebs, but actually engaging productively with the text is a skill that is difficult and takes practice, as well as a base of background knowledge that you actually know inside your mindbrain. Not to mention that most information on the internet is facile or wrong, and you're unlikely to even know what it is you're looking for.
