The majority of us spend all day on the internet and argue on a forum over things like favorite breast sizes, how funny a cat picture is and why MLP lovers over the age of seven are trash. I don't think many of us are making it through the standards of a eugenics based society.
User avatar #58 - thatoneiranianguy (10/17/2014) [-]
Seems kind of a really stupid and unnecessary point of view to be honest.

I've met business owners, engineers, chemists, anthropologists, etc on this website that have chimed in on discussions that show they have a well rounded knowledge and intelligence. Excellent contribution to society, they come here to blow off steam and enjoy the friendships that can build in an online world.

What we "do all day" on the internet is irrelevant to our intelligence or some standards of eugenics.
User avatar #60 - IamSofaKingdom (10/17/2014) [-]
First off, learn how to take a joke especially since you are on the internet.

Second there is this word there, "majority". It is almost like that word means that many of the people here are being referred to and not all of them. I bet if you added up all of the prestigious occupations on the site ( the ones you named) you wouldn't exceed 50%, I'd wager less than 15%, and that would make my statement correct according to it's definition.
User avatar #61 - thatoneiranianguy (10/17/2014) [-]
Yikes, jokes on the internet - I am just trying to have an intellectual discourse. Although to be honest rereading it I still have not found the funny.

Anyway, you implied based on those you described most would not meet the standards of a eugenics based society. However, I think it is irrelevant -sure you could probably find correlation with internet activities and intelligence but minority or majority is irrelevant.

I could be a 180 IQ engineer who owns a corporation and does archaeological digs on my free time and still do as you described. You misread my point of argument.
User avatar #63 - IamSofaKingdom (10/17/2014) [-]
No, if you had that job you wouldn't have the time to, "spend all day on the internet...". The joke lies in the activities described such as arguing over MLP. It is a comment made sarcastically in response to a comment attacking my personal character. It is called wit.

P.S. You are not trying to have intellectual discourse when you are in a conversation purely to degrade someone else's statement. You entered the conversation with the stated goal of trying to tell me I made a pointless statement when comically responding to someone else's taunt. I think you need to reevaluate yourself as a supposed intellectual seeking conversation before trying to evaluate me on a FJ comment section.
User avatar #66 - thatoneiranianguy (10/17/2014) [-]
Nobody literally spends "all day" on the internet though, and if they do - they're either too young for school to begin with. All day is clearly an intended exaggeration. I'm not here to purely degrade your statement - with your joke it was implied that it matters at all. That usefulness or lack there off is not necessarily a reflection of intelligence, but personal motivation. That was my point.

I wanna see your source on that first fact there, buddy. There have been close to 40 school shootings in 2014 alone.
And just because the US was useful 70 years ago doesn't mean that they can ride on that forever.
Also, wanna explain why Canadians are respected in Europe and Americans aren't?
User avatar #349 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
LOL. Only a dumb ass Canadian would actually think the US is hated anywhere. Look at all the former places we invaded that love us now. Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea, Kenya, France etc.

No one actually like Canada. That whole nice and polite narrative is something you guys made up. More people still move to the US and visit the US by a long shot.
User avatar #355 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
People also hate the French (or rather dislike them, hate is too strong a word), yet Paris is the most visited city in the world.
American arrogance and lack of culture is infamous worldwide, it goes so far that people like the OP of this thread think there aren't legitimate reasons to dislike America, it must be because they all want to live their but some invisible power is keeping them from moving.
User avatar #358 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
Plus you are German, and just like Argentina you guys have a odd dislike of the US, despite the fact we saved your country from becoming Poland. If it isn't jealousy what is it? You don't see Americans going out of their way to bash Germans. So why do Germans go out of their way to bash Americans. Seems like insecurity to me.
User avatar #361 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
>that we saved your country from becoming Poland

You, as in, you as a person didn't do shit and I owe you or your kind nothing.
You, as in, your country contributed in the same way Russia, France or England did but you are the only people I know that demand gratitude or credit for it, even 70 years later.

I can't tell you why germans don't like the US, I don't even know if those people are a majority, but I know that my dislike for the US doesn't stem from jealousy. I'm not even exactly sure what it is that I am accused of being jealous of.
User avatar #362 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
No. Russia didn't save you from becoming Poland. They would have made you into Poland. I don't know if you know your history, but the USSR wanted to de-industrialize Germany. The US said no, and we built you guys back up with the Marshall plan because we knew you would be a good ally in the future. That is why you politicians still like us, and are still grateful to us.

Then what does you dislike of the US stem from?
User avatar #365 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
I thought you were talking about 'liberating' us from the nazis, in which Russia definitely took part in.

It depends on what exactly you want to look at. I don't hate the country, i.e. the landscape, I don't necessarily dislike the people, even though I believe that the stereotypes about American arrogance hold some truth. No, what I dislike about the US is a mix of what your government does, what some of your people do, and how they tend to react to criticism and go completely overboard with religious beliefs, political movements, and lobbyism. Their health and education system. Their agencies meddling in foreign affairs. I can elaborate if you want me to, but I wanted to make it clear first that I don't have anything against you personally just because you're American, and neither do most people I know.

OK. Time to debunk some myths.

85% of Americans have healthcare. Of the remaining 15% about half don't want healthcare. Our healthcare system produces by far the most medical research in the world, and we have over 50% of the Nobel Prizes in medicine. The high prices of our healthcare fun this.

Education wise, America is fine. We are ahead of Sweden in every category. I recommend you read this article about the fallacy of PISA scores written by a Swedish Kurd. super-economy.blogspot.com/2010/12/amazing-truth-about-pisa-scores-usa.html?m=1

Are Europeans really going to criticize us for meddling in foreign affairs? Does imperialism ring a bell? Plus a lot of nations like our meddling, like those in Africa and Asia.

We give our people complete freedom of speech. We don't censor things like Germany, so you might see some unpopular opinions. I don't see how this is a bad thing.
User avatar #370 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
Neither does Germany censor anyone, as guaranteed by the constitution. I don't know why the idea that you are the only country with free speech is so popular.

Not having free healthcare sounds absolutely alien to Europeans, especially when you tell us that you are more free for not having it, while there is literally no one in Germany that wants to do away with it.

And what about your high student loans? What about people still having trouble finding jobs in today's economy even though they chose what you call 'valuable degrees', i.e. something that won't get you ridiculed by everyone around you?
What about more and more female school teachers having sex with their underage students which is not seen as rape but as him being lucky?

What about NSA and their spying upon allied nations, even going as far as wiretaping the private cellphone of Angela Merkel? What about whistleblowers like Snowden having to leave the country for good because he exposed the nature of your intelligence agencies and secret services?
User avatar #374 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
Germany censors videogames.

Please show me how many of those female teacher things have been happening. The answer is one. In a country with over 300 million people.

If someone got a degree in Engineering or Business they will have no problem finding a job. I could have went to a state school for 8,000 Normally 12,000 but I got a 5000 a year academic scholarship a year, and that is with no financial aid because I do not qualify. Instead I went to one of the top private Universities in the country. Tuition is 52000 a year. I don't have any student loans, and even my poorer friends don't have many because the schools donors pay for them to go for free. The only ones with terrible student loans are those who went to a mediocre private school and majored in something useless.

No shit with the spying. Germany spies on us too. I guarantee it. Merkel is only faking outrage to please the citizens. What Snowden did was treason. He released information about the location of our spies and military plans as well.

Non-Universal healthcare is more free by definition, because you have more freedom on what you choose to spend your money on. Why should I have to pay the same amount as a 400 pound diabetic who smokes a pack a day?
User avatar #375 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
So what? America censors profanity and nudity on TV. That doesn't mean your right to free speech is being violated.

>Please show me how many of those female teacher things have been happening.
Here you go: www.wnd.com/2014/08/39783/

$52,000 a year. And you're telling me that this is not outrageous? How do you justify your education costing that much more than in every other industrialized nation?

Let's assume what you say is true (even though there's no proof of that) and Germany spies upon your citizens as well. What would we do with that information? Why would we care what Americans look up on the internet? Are we as paranoid as the US when it comes to terrorism?
I don't think you grasp it, but listening to the private phonecalls an allied leader makes without permission is actually a pretty big fucking deal, is that supposed to be how Americans treat their allies?
What Snowden did was expose the lenghts a paranoid government goes to when it has the technology at its disposal and how little it actually cares about those very same freedoms that you love to parade around and who is ally and who is enemy. I cannot understand how you can see your government placing every citizen under general suspicion and be fine with it.

You don't pay the same amount as a 400 pound diabetic. How much you pay depends on how much you earn and if you can prove that you look after yourself you get benefits and need to pay less. This can be something as trivial as having a gym membership or not being a heavy smoker. Our philosophy is not 'give idiots who can't look after themselves endless money', it's more like 'help people in need help themselves'.
User avatar #377 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
That 52000 is for a private school. AKA they can do what they want. It's funny, my school was number 5 on a list for universities with best value (Earnings compared to money spent).

Do you think we care what you look up on the internet either? We look for buzzwords and flags. The computer sorts through it all. People are not looking at your posts on Funnyjunk right now.

Why pay for lazy people's success? Too many government handouts, and people don't feel the need to work as hard. Germans are remarkably hard workers, and this isn't a problem for them now, but look at what has happened to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, even France to an extent. Soon Germans will become lazy, especially with all the immigrants diluting your culture.
User avatar #357 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
Well it actually is pretty hard to get a visa to the US. And more people from Europe still move to the US than the other way around. There are plenty of people who wait to get in, but can't.

Also, how can you say America has no culture? Our music, our products, our movies, and our TVs shows are everywhere. In fact Funnyjunk is American culture. You guys just don't see it as American culture because it is so ingrained in your life.
User avatar #379 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
Replying to #377 here.

Don't you think it is still an outrageous sum? How much do you pay for state universities?

Also, pretty much this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oAKtBpdZSw

The reason so many of those countries are shitholes now is not really because of lazy people, it's more complex than that. One example I know of is France having extremely high corporate tax rates, which makes creation of a strong "Mittelstand" (which is the backbone of the german economy), nearly impossible and extremely risky. Laziness in Germany will be less of a problem than cold progression and ageing of the population. Also the fact that the whole European Union (and the €) stands or falls with our economy and the Russian/Ukraine crisis and whatnot.

Will anyone remove kebab and protect my culture? I will give Oktoberfest Biermarken in return.

Ultimately what I'm trying to say is that there is legitimate criticism to be made about the US, just like there is legitimate criticism to be made about every other country on earth and that dismissing anyone doing so as being jealous is unwise, in my opinion.

The language, the jokes, so many American pop culture references. It's an American site visited by tons of foreigners.

The fact is the vast majority of the world likes us, including a majority of the Chinese. But for some reason Europeans are always the ones who dislike us and bash us, even after using American products daily. What other explanation is there?

It is the same reason people hate Bayern Munich, Man United, Real Madrid, Lebron James, Team Ferrarri, etc.

No shit with the spying. Germany spies on us too. I guarantee it. Merkel is only faking outrage to please the citizens. What Snowden did was treason. He released information about the location of our spies and military plans as well.

Non-Universal healthcare is more free by definition, because you have more freedom on what you choose to spend your money on. Why should I have to pay the same amount as a 400 pound diabetic who smokes a pack a day?

$52,000 a year. And you're telling me that this is not outrageous? How do you justify your education costing that much more than in every other industrialized nation?

Let's assume what you say is true (even though there's no proof of that) and Germany spies upon your citizens as well. What would we do with that information? Why would we care what Americans look up on the internet? Are we as paranoid as the US when it comes to terrorism?
I don't think you grasp it, but listening to the private phonecalls an allied leader makes without permission is actually a pretty big fucking deal, is that supposed to be how Americans treat their allies?
What Snowden did was expose the lenghts a paranoid government goes to when it has the technology at its disposal and how little it actually cares about those very same freedoms that you love to parade around and who is ally and who is enemy. I cannot understand how you can see your government placing every citizen under general suspicion and be fine with it.

You don't pay the same amount as a 400 pound diabetic. How much you pay depends on how much you earn and if you can prove that you look after yourself you get benefits and need to pay less. This can be something as trivial as having a gym membership or not being a heavy smoker. Our philosophy is not 'give idiots who can't look after themselves endless money', it's more like 'help people in need help themselves'.

That 52000 is for a private school. AKA they can do what they want. It's funny, my school was number 5 on a list for universities with best value (Earnings compared to money spent).

Do you think we care what you look up on the internet either? We look for buzzwords and flags. The computer sorts through it all. People are not looking at your posts on Funnyjunk right now.

Why pay for lazy people's success? Too many government handouts, and people don't feel the need to work as hard. Germans are remarkably hard workers, and this isn't a problem for them now, but look at what has happened to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, even France to an extent. Soon Germans will become lazy, especially with all the immigrants diluting your culture.
User avatar #357 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
Well it actually is pretty hard to get a visa to the US. And more people from Europe still move to the US than the other way around. There are plenty of people who wait to get in, but can't.

Also, how can you say America has no culture? Our music, our products, our movies, and our TVs shows are everywhere. In fact Funnyjunk is American culture. You guys just don't see it as American culture because it is so ingrained in your life.
User avatar #379 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
Replying to #377 here.

Don't you think it is still an outrageous sum? How much do you pay for state universities?

Also, pretty much this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oAKtBpdZSw

The reason so many of those countries are shitholes now is not really because of lazy people, it's more complex than that. One example I know of is France having extremely high corporate tax rates, which makes creation of a strong "Mittelstand" (which is the backbone of the german economy), nearly impossible and extremely risky. Laziness in Germany will be less of a problem than cold progression and ageing of the population. Also the fact that the whole European Union (and the €) stands or falls with our economy and the Russian/Ukraine crisis and whatnot.

Will anyone remove kebab and protect my culture? I will give Oktoberfest Biermarken in return.

Ultimately what I'm trying to say is that there is legitimate criticism to be made about the US, just like there is legitimate criticism to be made about every other country on earth and that dismissing anyone doing so as being jealous is unwise, in my opinion.

The language, the jokes, so many American pop culture references. It's an American site visited by tons of foreigners.

The fact is the vast majority of the world likes us, including a majority of the Chinese. But for some reason Europeans are always the ones who dislike us and bash us, even after using American products daily. What other explanation is there?

It is the same reason people hate Bayern Munich, Man United, Real Madrid, Lebron James, Team Ferrarri, etc.

We have less deaths per mass killings than most any other country per capita. Plus I don't hang out in Gun Free Zones. And World War 2. Remember that was a thing we did? Gave a bunch of shit to Russia so they stood a chance and gave shit to Canada, France and the UK so they could supply themselves and fight Hitlers Panzer divisions?

I wanna see your source on that first fact there, buddy. There have been close to 40 school shootings in 2014 alone.
And just because the US was useful 70 years ago doesn't mean that they can ride on that forever.
Also, wanna explain why Canadians are respected in Europe and Americans aren't?
User avatar #349 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
LOL. Only a dumb ass Canadian would actually think the US is hated anywhere. Look at all the former places we invaded that love us now. Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea, Kenya, France etc.

No one actually like Canada. That whole nice and polite narrative is something you guys made up. More people still move to the US and visit the US by a long shot.
User avatar #355 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
People also hate the French (or rather dislike them, hate is too strong a word), yet Paris is the most visited city in the world.
American arrogance and lack of culture is infamous worldwide, it goes so far that people like the OP of this thread think there aren't legitimate reasons to dislike America, it must be because they all want to live their but some invisible power is keeping them from moving.
User avatar #358 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
Plus you are German, and just like Argentina you guys have a odd dislike of the US, despite the fact we saved your country from becoming Poland. If it isn't jealousy what is it? You don't see Americans going out of their way to bash Germans. So why do Germans go out of their way to bash Americans. Seems like insecurity to me.
User avatar #361 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
>that we saved your country from becoming Poland

You, as in, you as a person didn't do shit and I owe you or your kind nothing.
You, as in, your country contributed in the same way Russia, France or England did but you are the only people I know that demand gratitude or credit for it, even 70 years later.

I can't tell you why germans don't like the US, I don't even know if those people are a majority, but I know that my dislike for the US doesn't stem from jealousy. I'm not even exactly sure what it is that I am accused of being jealous of.
User avatar #362 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
No. Russia didn't save you from becoming Poland. They would have made you into Poland. I don't know if you know your history, but the USSR wanted to de-industrialize Germany. The US said no, and we built you guys back up with the Marshall plan because we knew you would be a good ally in the future. That is why you politicians still like us, and are still grateful to us.

Then what does you dislike of the US stem from?
User avatar #365 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
I thought you were talking about 'liberating' us from the nazis, in which Russia definitely took part in.

It depends on what exactly you want to look at. I don't hate the country, i.e. the landscape, I don't necessarily dislike the people, even though I believe that the stereotypes about American arrogance hold some truth. No, what I dislike about the US is a mix of what your government does, what some of your people do, and how they tend to react to criticism and go completely overboard with religious beliefs, political movements, and lobbyism. Their health and education system. Their agencies meddling in foreign affairs. I can elaborate if you want me to, but I wanted to make it clear first that I don't have anything against you personally just because you're American, and neither do most people I know.

OK. Time to debunk some myths.

85% of Americans have healthcare. Of the remaining 15% about half don't want healthcare. Our healthcare system produces by far the most medical research in the world, and we have over 50% of the Nobel Prizes in medicine. The high prices of our healthcare fun this.

Education wise, America is fine. We are ahead of Sweden in every category. I recommend you read this article about the fallacy of PISA scores written by a Swedish Kurd. super-economy.blogspot.com/2010/12/amazing-truth-about-pisa-scores-usa.html?m=1

Are Europeans really going to criticize us for meddling in foreign affairs? Does imperialism ring a bell? Plus a lot of nations like our meddling, like those in Africa and Asia.

We give our people complete freedom of speech. We don't censor things like Germany, so you might see some unpopular opinions. I don't see how this is a bad thing.
User avatar #370 - infernis (10/15/2014) [-]
Neither does Germany censor anyone, as guaranteed by the constitution. I don't know why the idea that you are the only country with free speech is so popular.

Not having free healthcare sounds absolutely alien to Europeans, especially when you tell us that you are more free for not having it, while there is literally no one in Germany that wants to do away with it.

And what about your high student loans? What about people still having trouble finding jobs in today's economy even though they chose what you call 'valuable degrees', i.e. something that won't get you ridiculed by everyone around you?
What about more and more female school teachers having sex with their underage students which is not seen as rape but as him being lucky?

What about NSA and their spying upon allied nations, even going as far as wiretaping the private cellphone of Angela Merkel? What about whistleblowers like Snowden having to leave the country for good because he exposed the nature of your intelligence agencies and secret services?
User avatar #374 - damping (10/15/2014) [-]
Germany censors videogames.

Please show me how many of those female teacher things have been happening. The answer is one. In a country with over 300 million people.

If someone got a degree in Engineering or Business they will have no problem finding a job. I could have went to a state school for 8,000 Normally 12,000 but I got a 5000 a year academic scholarship a year, and that is with no financial aid because I do not qualify. Instead I went to one of the top private Universities in the country. Tuition is 52000 a year. I don't have any student loans, and even my poorer friends don't have many because the schools donors pay for them to go for free. The only ones with terrible student loans are those who went to a mediocre private school and majored in something useless.
