RE: Old People Are Idiots
The majority of the human race is born to simply work and keep the race alive. If brains were needed to breed, we'd have a lot more smart people.

His overall point, for all his videos about the various demographics being made up of idiots, is true. Most people are born in-between dumbass and genius. The important thing is that we recognize the worst and the best, and we normally strive to be the latter.

How 'bout the argument that this nihilist has spent the last 35 years of my meaningless existence coming up with reasons not to step in front of the bus. You respect that? Cuz if not I don't think I'd have much of a problem throwing your sorry ass under the bus. ... In every sense of the metaphor.

Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Ladies, ladies please! Put your handbags away.

TJ has done the same kinda vid for all age ranges and his approach is deliberately provocative (and is successful as above posts show).

OK, sure, the humour is hit and miss (sometimes more miss than hit) but it comes from (I think) a good place... he is trying to get America thinking again.
Is that a bad thing?

RE: Old People Are Idiots
Ugh, The Amazing Atheist is just not that funny... plus he's a complete ass in just about every way.

But think of his vids as like the Rush Limbaugh of atheism, or Howard Stern. Some people like him and think he's funny, but most don't and just wish he would go away.

Anyway, it's a ridiculous over-generalization to say that old people are useless. Some are, some aren't... just like young people.

Psst- he was making a joke about the word contained within the word "snigger", which is why he called it "sracist". Big Grin

Yeah. Ginger can be such a hurtful term.

RE: Old People Are Idiots
Personally, I think the guy is an idiot. I don't particularily like his style of humor, and he delivers it poorly at that. It's like he lines up 15 dead horses, brands them as "punchlines', then beats each and every one of them into unrecognizable blobs.

As for the drama with regard to his subject matter? Meh. Waste of time.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
