    How can you conflate how you control/influence/raise your kids with how you can control/influence random internet people?

    Are you sane?

    No, but you should probably feel at least a bit bad for making this statement.

    I am sane. I misread the context of what was written. I was trying to make the point that for every action their is a reaction.

    Moving on from this thread, which wont be a big deal anyway with this site.

    I doubt he's directly involved but this sort of thing should still be expected when you cater to the #chan crowd, it's exactly the type of behavior I would expect from his fans.

    If you lie with dogs don't be surprised when you end up with fleas.

    You frantically try to finish off the pile of dishes in the filthy industrial sink, your clothes are soaked, so soaked with freezing cold soap/grease combo sludge mix that your dick is freeizing from it.

    So fucking tired from 8 hours of standing and washing, because youre weak as shit from the 30 cents of ramen you consume per day

    Your 87 LE corrola"LUXERY EDITION" wont start. Again. No start, no heat. Boy these clothes sure feel cheap and filmsy. You watch as your breathe starts to collect in the car.

    You open the door to try to get help (you cant afford triple A)

    etc etc etc
    etc etc etc

    Log on internet, sore, poor, dirty and what is the first thing I see?

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&sou...aw1WDQ-aGjOxEY_BoLdCo-Ek&ust=1553398446808851


    Even back then, I had the self restraint. Why don't they?

    I think it's two things. One of which is forgivable. I think that just think they will be washing dishes with a cold dick forever.

    Second is that 'If its hard for me to make money why should be easy for them'

    This is a much less endearing attitude! Would you rather he was hungry and his dick was covered in lemon pledge icles too? Then things are better for you?

    Assholes.

    aprox 9001 different ways to influence people just via text. Where do your periods go? How is the cadence of your sentences. Lots of spaces and small little words, commas, should we give off the impression that we are just having a leisurely chat?

    When you talk to someone, do you want to put them at ease? Do you want to get them afraid, sell that ADT subscription? What's the agenda?

    Sentences are very powerful things, and lines of texts have started wars before. That's influence.

    Pictures? Forget about it. Every little tiniest detail in Camel Joe is designed for one reason, even putting the shit at 5'8" instead of 3' down on a rack I can influence how people will react.

    You guys seem to have confused influence with like, i dunno, forced somebody to do some shit, which is totally different, this shit is obvious wtf

    Like if I put a gun to your head and say jump up and down I'm not influencing you anymore. We use another word for that.

    Influcning someone to jump up and down is more like leaving a jump rope on the floor

    There's powerful forms of Influence. What do you think showgirls are used for? Girls in skimpy outfits, raises the level of testosterone in nearby men for a short period of time, making them more prone to rash decision making.

    All you need is a slutty dress and you can fuck with the chemicals inside of people's fucking brains man

    tl;dr I am a triggered jealous loser that is only too happy to blame others for my problems.

    Keep this up and you're going to end up on a lot of people's ignore lists. Quite a feat for joining less than a month ago.

    All I can interpret from that is nonsense.



    Give that a watch and educate yourself a bit. Skip to 12 minutes if it's too much for you to watch anything unrelated to PewDiePie.

    What is going on here, is this some kind of hazing stunt here?

    You post a nonsense reply to my post, informing me "TLDR" and then quite literally did not read, but (Pro tip, and don't spread this one around the Internets too much, can't have everyone) YOURE SUPPOSED TO SCIM THE FUCKING LONG POST JUST IN CASE IT IS SOMEONE THAT AGREES WITH YOU!

    BECAUSE HOW STUPID WOULD YOU LOOK IF YOU JUST WENT INTO A PUBLIC thread and made personal attacks on someone who is in the process of agreeing with your fucking argument

    Apologies. But your reply made so little sense that I thought you were saying something completely different.

    I still don't know what in the fuck he was trying to say and have little interest in trying to decipher it.

    It's because I'm an idiot sorry

    yeah guys the LAST reason I joined this forum is to piss off established users,

    I'll try to make my final thoughts coherent, uh, I think people just get real fucking jealous, because it is a LOT easier to stream video games than to dig graves or install HVAC so they try to belittle their occupation of choice so they feel like they're getting a better deal ya know?

    Like I feel like there is a push to attach some sort of social stigma to people that make money from 'bullshit' , like talking to youtube camera about games you like for 10 minutes a day, because everyone else is so fucking jealous, they need to be punished for having easy lives :vomit::vomit::vomit:

    But there's no social stigma from being say a board director, who also makes 10s of millions and does less than 1 nanosecond of actual work in their workday

    This is a load of shit. I feel bad for the families that lost their kids, but they should be going after all the people making money off of fearmongering and agencies that failed to act. Hopefully, it gets thrown out in court.

    As for the Pman, I cannot stand his content, his attitude, or the zealots that follow him. But blaming him for the actions of a few (prob people who are subscribed to both channels exploiting a userbase who wants the other to win) is wrong and is teaching people to not be responsible for their own actions.


    There is some truth in your statement. Plenty of jobs require more manual labor others can be mentally exhausting. But to stay relevant some of these content creators are working longer and harder than people are giving them credit for. In the end, it is much easier to blame someone else for your own problems vs. accepting fault and trying to change the situation.


    There actually is a growing resentment today about those very same people. A specific political party has a few radicals (hell it may be more generalized than I know) inside of it is pushing the narrative of rich man bad. Give the government full control and we will make sure even the those unwilling to work will get paid.

    Also, I wouldn't pick on board directors, CEOs, or anyone else that high up. What might seem like a "nanosecond" of work can negatively/positively affect jobs they directly created "people hired by company X." These decisions can also negatively/positively affect jobs indirectly created by the company. So their choices may reach into 100K+ jobs.

    Geez. These feuds over something as dumb as Youtube celebrity.

    The sooner all these Youtube losers go away the better.

    It just goes to reinformce my firmly held beliefs.

    If it is on Youtube, it probably sucks.

    Don't get me wrong. Youtube was great back when it was just regular people sharing their latest cat video, but as soon as it started to include polished and edited contents, it quickly became "teh suck".

    Youtube was great as a video clip sharing site. it is terrible as a "show" site.

    I am offended and triggered by your opinions, and will gather a horde of Youtubers to nerd rage on Twitter.

    In all seriousness, there is still a lot of great content on Youtube, and there is a lot of great content still being uploaded to Youtube. Most of my music comes from Youtube discoveries on small (less than 1000 subscribers) channels. I've learned a lot on Game Theory videos, especially how fun it is to think outside the box and look at established facts from a different perspective. The only "major" channels I'm subscribed to are Game Theory and Corridor Digital, the rest are small Vocaloid music creators.

    Don't worry. This guy has been on these forums time and time again, talking about how YouTube was always better back in the day. I tried to have a reasonable back and forth, and it stayed civil, but neither of us budged on our opinions (I think it's great to have a mix of ameteur and professional content, he wants it all ameteur content). Ultimately, everyone's entitled to their opinion, but I don't think it's unreasonable to say YouTube is objectively better now than it was then. Worse in some ways, yes, but the pros far outweigh the cons.
