A Greek and Italian were arguing over who had the superior culture. The Greek says:
– We have the Parthenon.
Arching his eyebrows, the Italian replies:
– We have the Coliseum.
The Greek retorts:
– We Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics.
The Italian, nodding agreement, says,
– But we built the Roman Empire.
And so on and so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion. With a flourish of finality he says:
– We invented sex!
The Italian replies:
– That is true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to women.

Precisely what I expect they'd say and do. Hypocrites. :disappoin

I always do something similar when I get some idiot who vigorously espouses that we take money away from billionaires and/or the wealthy because "they can afford it" or else "why should they have so much." I say to the person, "well, you own two cars (or three cars) and there are many homeless people out there in the world with none. Why should you own so many cars when so many other people out there in the world could use one of your cars?"

Amazing how quickly they become apoplectic and say, "But those are my cars! I own them, I'm not giving them away!"

:nofu:

Just like all leftists: Let me preach equality and sacrifice to the world, as long as we use someone else's money or someone else is inconvenienced and forced to sacrifice.

Hypocritical assholes.

This video can help people understand that sick tail chasing cycle... (If peoples attention span allows for the full length. But this is TN! I have high hopes)

longer videos = more money/revenue/watch time.
Maybe so, but if it's a bunch of BS until he/she gets to the point, I'm gone. I only have so much time to watch those kind of vids (cuts into my porn time).
What he said. In the short term I just close down the video and leave. For people like ramzpaul, he's now on my personal mental block list, and I just won't watch any of his videos anymore. I just don't have time for some guy to get to the fricking point. I've got shit to do in the real world....

Amen! I don't like listening to people who take too long to talk, or those who talk too much either, both of which are the same amount of suffering to me. Short sweet hard to beat.

About the only time I'm interested in a long You tube vid, is when I'm watching it before I go tearing into a particular vehicle and want some tips and gotcha's.

I don't even like it then. Make it a short vid getting right to the point. I always have to watch numerous vids to find out whose way and tools are best and some leave out good info that others leave out as well. Wish I could watch one quick vid and completely know everything to do the absolute best way. Most vids that pop up for my car are for the 4cyl version and even the ones I find for mine are mostly crap from young kids who don't know how to film much less talk and explain well.
:gaah:

I like Eric the car guy vids, but then I'm usually watching them because I'm working on a Honda. Older GM's I don't have to watch vids on, because they're simple to work on. My early Toyota want to be (my Geo) isn't too bad to work on, but then it's full of proven simplicity, and bullet proof parts, so I don't have to work on it very often. My VW's are full of simple parts doing simple jobs, that hardly ever wear out. But they do require maintenance. And I don't work on fords, as nothing interchanges on them. Not to mention, it seems like things work backwards on them compared to everything else I own and or work on.
