Talking the Juno movie where that know it all girl is the worst, everyone talks and posts as if they are her, or inspiring to be like her.

Everyday its the most dumbest shit that people obsess over. Not even talking games, but everyone always trying to be clever, as if everyone is trying to be the most annoying person possible.

Talking, top comments are puns, where 20 people post to it with their own follow up puns. And its all that grade school myspace type of dumb games people play, like digging up the most useless facts possible, or spending 2 seconds reposting the same old shit.

But it's also how everyone always trying to solve everything cause shocker they know it all, and it blows my mind how offended people are when someone says something wrong. I want to say its a SJW or histper thing, but it isn't specific subreddits, it seems to be all of them, whether sports, games, movies, etc.

Nice rant.

Not quite sure what's here to discuss, though, and it could start a ruckus and end in a thread locking.

Ah well, guess we'll see. *Readies popcorn.*

Social media exposes how dumb people are and I'm afraid there is no coming back it's like we all been a exposed to toxic chemicals that will never come off.

@comp_atkins: There was this movie called Juno, and the girl in plays a sort of smart ass know it all who's too cool for everyone. Think a sort of SJW hipster who knows everything about movies/music/etc. and everything is like a sarcastic teen.

Example, people are obsessed with this thing Lebron James does, called Taco Tuesday, its the most embarrassing dad stuff ever, type of thing 20 years ago, your kid would get beat up for you doing. Reddit eats this shit up, and someone went and looked up all his games to see if he plays another player named Tacko on Tuesdays. Which to me, is the same as owning a hamburger phone, like the level of sarcasm has its own life.

Tried it a few times very active specific stuff, but by god the visual layout is horrible, like jumping back to the early 2000's.

What's wrong with Taco Tuesday?

I mean, this is almost a weekly holiday thing in the US. People go down to their favorite pub and drink beers and eat cheap yet wholesome tacos.

But yeah Juno was pretty bad, it taught people to be judgmental about others when they're judgmental of you. Sort of sends the wrong message.

"Hey, look at the pregnant teenager. Shame!"

"Oh yeah, well, *insert hipster music reference*"

"I don't know what that means, preggo"

"That's right, you don't" and then walks off like she won the battle.

A better teenage pregnancy movie was Saved, and that was also pretty bad. And preachy...

I was gonna say all of internet, but picked Reddit, but was gonna add Twitter and Facebook.

If people still don't get this sarcastic society:

Perfect Example: The "Storm Area 51" sarcasm, that people took it so serious that they doing a festival, and dozens of companies have done posts about how they'll give aliens free shit, etc. You name it, there been countless things that have come of this.

This is nationwide level of sarcasm that just needs to end. People and their troll like nature think its cool that something stupid lead to such an event, I think its same culture that lead to Trump being the president. A sarcastic society wanted a sarcastic president.

Have you considered only viewing subs that have more substance? There's something for everyone if you take the time to look. r/all may represent the majority, but certainly not the whole.

I only end up at reddit via a search for a problem I have. Seems okay for that.
