K you do that. I recommend Twin Star Exorcist personally, only watched the first episode and already in love with it. As for Bill Nye, IDK just what popped into my head at the time. C'est la vie.

Eh, what can I say. Cynicality is a way of life for me. Doesn't mean I can't just ignore everyone though And yeah, as much as I joke about migrating to Canada, or maybe Japan, I wouldn't give up on this country for the life of me. Probably. Most likely. Unless, like, it got nuked and I actually had to leave. then yeah. Besides the point.

I do think America is stupid at times, if I denied that then i'd be lying. But there's always some hope that one day we can turn it around. And really thats what keeps me going sometimes, that and the belief that if I die now i'm gonna miss out on all the cool stuff. Also, it's alright, I forgive you for the "stupid" bit. We all go a little overboard sometimes, to er is to be human after all


It's okay to be cynical I'd just prefer not to give into the "Damn american public so stupid" or "damn everyone who watches this is so stupid" thing. It's just cliche and honestly pretty cringey. But I get you, if people are smart, why would they watch dumb things? I guess it's just easy to be entertained, I'm certainly pickier than most people when it comes to music for example, even some die hard classics I despise.

I'm actually extremely cynical and pessimistic but judging a bunch of people I don't know just makes me feel wrong and it's pretty toxic so i try not to do it. Judging myself and people I know is too easy.

L O L are you implying that if you didn't think America could get better you'd kill yourself? HAHAHA come on man that's so dramatic

Aaaactually I was trying to be humerus. I forget sometimes my sense of humor can be misconstrued online since I can't have a tone of voice online although I am actually afraid of dying and missing out on cool stuff, that much is true

Haha good luck trying to change America when 16 year olds are displaying and condoning cynical behaviours lol. Look at the definition of the word; Concerned only with one's own interests and typically disregarding accepted standards in order to achieve them.
Wow it sounds like your countries motto. GLHF

They don't. Most dumb people are obscure morons who make up at least 30% of the population of random nobodies. The ones that do become famous tend to be in that position because of a malicious phenomenon; most people are commonly closeted, conceited pricks who reduce those "dumb people" down to spectacles, and all for entertainment purposes. On another hand, those "dumb people" may be smart enough to succeed in manipulating everyone else for their own gain, which means that, interestingly, they're actually smarter that many folks. Regarding the Dr. Phil girl, though, there's a good chance that she's being used as a puppet and drained for her monetary worth. She's truly stupid, in that case, and greedy bastards are getting away with it.

I used to think the same way, but in my view there are two things wrong with this kind of thinking.

Firstly I think it's wrong to assume that stupidity should be punished. Honestly it's annoying to be the smart guy in the room and put up with stupid people making important decisions. It's hard not to be when we literally hand them the presidency. But this thinking is just born out of frustration. Stupid people can't really help the fact that they're stupid, If you're really superior in intellect but not in compassion and decency, well then you're not really the better person at all. Just think about stupidity like a disability. I mean. It kind of is.

That brings me to my second point, which is assuming that she's somehow being rewarded for her stupidity. Yes she can cash in on this whole fiasco right now, but would you really trade places with her? She's clearly never had a good upbringing. Her life was terrible enough to land her on Dr MauryPhilSpringer or whatever, and an influx of cash from people who want to feel smugly superior to her isn't going to help much. What are the odds she's actually going to be responsible with that money? Even if she was, doesn't that mean she wasn't as stupid as people thought?.The only ones who are any better for all of this are the tv execs cashing in on peoples' desire to feel smug and superior.

In case you decided not to read the article, if you remember that stupid "Cash Me Outside" meme (god I hate having to type that, it only further advances the cancer), you pretty much know the whole story about that stupid teenager who got famous just for making herself look stupid on Dr. Phil (as if she didnt already embarass herself, she had to embarass her family as well, those poor folks).

Well, now for some inanely asinine reason, TV executives have decided that it would be a good idea to give her her own television show. Yes, you read that correctly, you did not suddenly Mandela Effect into an alternative universe. I hope, anyway.

Which brings me to my rant, of how come all the dumb people get famous? I mean for crying out loud it happened to those Jersey Shore oranges, it happened to Kim "I like to display my body for the internet to fap to" Kardashian, and now this stupid B-word gets her own place in the spotlight! How come stupid people seem to attract the attention of TV producers so often?! Is it like a hivemind effect where stupid people are attracted to equally stupid people or something?

Honestly, I can't wait for NASA to accept applications to leave for Mars, because then I can finally leave all the stupid people behind



If you are a cynic like me, the obvious answer is that there are quite a few idiots in this world and they are bound to gravitate to their own kind

Look on the bright side, without the mindless zombies career advancement and job competition would be more competitive so look at it as a blessing from a money making perspective

I understand your frustration though, some of those reality T.V. shows are so devoid of intelligence it really starts to make one question what the heck is wrong with society.

Well, it is because of stupid people, but not THOSE stupid people--
It's because of stupid people who become TV executives, don't really use the Internet themselves, and think that whoever has viral fame is now an international sensation with Those Young People Out There With Their Cellphones And Their Facebook Who Do.

And then insecurely try to ape any new trend like....no, no, please, do NOT post that "Hello, fellow young people" meme, anymore, ever. We get it, let's just assume it's already posted.
(I mean, seriously, Hillary's campaigns over; what's that one from anyway?)
