More Lewis Black

This seems like it may the lead up to the other one. The whole thing had me rolling, but the last bit is truly priceless :D Enjoy!


"You are metaphysicians. You can prove anything by metaphysics; and having done so, every metaphysician can prove every other metaphysician wrong--to his own satisfaction. You are anarchists in the realm of thought. And you are mad cosmos-makers. Each of you dwells in a cosmos of his own making, created out of his own fancies and desires. You do not know the real world in which you live, and your thinking has no place in the real world except in so far as it is phenomena of mental aberration." -The Iron Heel by Jack London

And your support for such a silly statement is? Perhaps you would like to start a thread on whether or not Muhammad liked to party and whether Jesus or Muhammad was more likely to get drunk.

Or maybe you might want to actually check tenets first?

Re: Keith Olberman on the Miss Teen USA pageant
I reckon the girl in the video is making a clever post-modern commentary on the more subtle stupidity of people in general (well, not really but it's funny to imagine). By making herself sound like the caricature of dumb, she made herself an easy target for people who can only detect stupidity when it's packaged so conspicuously. These are the same people who are so gullible as to never even think to question the validity of a blatant pulled-out-the-ass statistic like "1 in 5 Americans can't find their own country on a world map". I'm pretty damn sure that 1 in 5 Americans aren't so stupid as to not know where their country is (I can't find any information about a poll that reveals such stats on the net), but they do seem to be stupid enough to get duped into believing any statistic they hear.

This isn't aimed at you btw Subbie. It's a good and funny vid.

Re: Keith Olberman on the Miss Teen USA pageant
What we need is evidence:

quote:
Nearly all (94%) young Americans can find the United States on the world map, and Canada
(92%) and Mexico (88%) are nearly as familiar. Wide majorities can find bordering bodies of
water including the Pacific Ocean (79%) and the Gulf of Mexico (75%). Trends from 2002
suggest that more young adults can pick out Canada and Mexico (with few signs of change for
other countries). However, it is concerning that one in ten of those with up to a high school
education cannot identify the U.S., and one in five cannot find the Pacific Ocean.
Places Beyond North America are Less Often Identified
Moving further abroad, three-quarters of young Americans can spot the distinctive landmass of
Australia (74%), and over half (56%) identify Brazil, the largest country by far in South America.
However, majorities cannot find the U.S.’s closest ally, the United Kingdom (36% correct, 65%
incorrect), nor can they find Egypt (30% vs. 70%) or Indonesia (25% vs. 75%).

Granted - this is just 18-24 year olds - but that should be reason to celebrate in itself.

Re: Keith Olberman on the Miss Teen USA pageant
Thanks for posting that. I was having difficulty finding such information on the net. It would be nice to thoroughly debunk the assertion that 1 in 5 Americans can't find their own country on a world map, but this helps.

He meant Muhammad Ali.

Re: Keith Olberman on the Miss Teen USA pageant
Hahaha. This reminds me of an NPR news story I heard a couple years ago. At the time, educators in Indonesia were worried when their national standardize test showed that over 40-some percent of their high school students couldn't locate their own country on the map.

Added by edit. I heard it while driving for many hours on the road. And this was a couple years ago. So, my memory of this might not be as accurate as I'd like it to be. This information may not be correct!
