Anyway, youtube vloggers construct personas for themselves to make entertainment in lieu of actual content. What else is new?
Even when I agree with them, I find it hard to sit through someone pontificating.

Oh great, another internet user who thinks saying he doesn't care what anyone thinks makes his online a persona a gadfly with a blank cheque to say whatever he wants.

I agree he makes good points in that other video, but I doubt he'll be convincing anyone with that attitude. Unless his plan was the poison the well he's failed abysmally.

I needed to google what "pontificating" means, and I'm leaving thinking it's just a synonym to being patronizing :/

Yeah --- it's not like this is new by any means. It's more grating when someone makes videos about how much he doesn't care (Paradox?), but it's easy to avoid those.

For me, the only point he made was that he was an asshole.

He just seemed to be saying "Sports are stupid and you're stupid if you like them." over and over again.

I like some youtubers but only when they're trying to be funny, not so much when they're trying to edgy or political. Amazing Atheist? Amazing douche bag more like, amirite?! Haha Thank you thanks, I'm here all week, remember to tip your waitresses.

1) I HATE, HATE, HATE, the notion that you're a nerd/gamer/whatever, you can't like sports as well. Eff that noise, I love me some NFL footballs and will continue to do so.

2) Not to old-man balls, but trying to be funny on Youtube is still a step below doing open-mic night at your local bar.

Weekend was soiled. Saw "Dark Knight Rises" and loved it, watched some terrible Marvel cartoons, drank, swam, BBQed and played video games, and got to relax for a change. Now I have to deal with my apartment being a mad house for the next 3 nights as Otakon looms closer and the wife prepares for it.

So yesterday while out in Ann Arbor myself, Boyfriend and our friend 'Moosey' encountered the weirdest mentally off hobo ever. The three of us where teasing around with two others and the hobo must have heard us introduce Moosey by his name to another person because he came barreling out of no where and shouted at the top of his lungs "MOOSEY DO YOU HAVE $50!?".

For a minute we all stood there confused and open mouthed, wondering briefly if Moosey knew the guy, and then it became apparent he was a creepy hobo with mental problems.

Apparently after Moosey said no to him, creepy hobo made to reach for the bottle of pop he was drinking to take it and Moosey took off in the other direction shortly followed by Boyfriend and Myself.

Creepy hobo FOLLOWED ALONG SIDE US for a solid block and was giving me this weird 'up and down' look the whole time and Boyfriend put his arm around me to put himself between me and the hobo.

Later on when we stepped into a Starbucks to cool down and Moosey had left ahead of us we saw the hobo wandering around outside looking around. So we stayed in until he left and Boyfriend said he saw the guy smoking on a curb like he managed to bum a cigarette off someone.

It'd be super great if our landlord would, every now and again, call and let me know before he sends people over to paint the stairs we use to get in and out of the apartment, or clean the cesspool, thus blocking the parking lot and making me late for work, etc. Just one of those nice little things he could do out of courtesy for the people paying him exorbitant amounts of money every month.

:| That was awfully inconsiderate of him. Considering the area you live in I can only imagine how exorbitant rent would be for you, and my imagining is probably not even accurately high enough.

I've lately come across linked videos to douches on youtube too much. They all have a reference to themselves too ('Obviously Jesus', 'Arguably the perfect man', 'Amazing Atheist'), in all cases they were obnoxious jackasses.

They were also all men, but I think most ranting vloggers are men, so it's not that much of an issue.

That said, mocking them in the 'bad stand up bar comedy' way is especially fitting XD

Both things are kinda similar --- they're just disconnected from their audience on the internet. However, stand-up comedy (Especially in bars) isn't my thing, so...

Re:Atheist stuff I wasn't paying attention to and am responding to from Kildread's quotes

At the art fair Boyfriend and I go to they have various booths for various faiths in the area, a Muslim one for example, and for some reason they always have a group of radical Christians preaching on street corners. They're not protesting, just shouting about. Theirs a Catholic origination table as well if I recall. They also had an Atheist booth I was interested in thinking "Oh hey this might be interesting to find out about, what various topics they're currently involved in, etc.." and I passed by their booth and it was 3 people looking bored and with their backs to the crowds so I rounded down the way I came and was like "Lol nope"
