The Perfect Solution to Obnoxiously Loud Public Cellphone Conversations
— "Don't you hate when people talk loudly on their phones in public?" asks professional prankster Greg Benson.
Benson, of MediocreFilms, believes he's come up with the perfect way to get people to stop having loud private conversations on their cellphones when they're out in public.
He calls his technique "cellphone crashing," and it's exactly what it sounds like.
In his latest candid camera video (shot by his wife), Benson situates himself next to chatty cellphone users at the airport, and proceeds to pretend he and the person next to him are having identical conversations.
Simple yet diabolical yet harmless yet effective. The best kind of trolling.
It's funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns.
Good god, I was with her up until that point. After hearing her say that I was almost embarrassed for agreeing with her about the whole santa thing.
EDIT: I should clarify. After watching more clips on this batshit crazy hot blonde, by no means do I agree with wherever the fuck she is coming from. I think I fall under the "why the hell are we turning Santa Claus into a race issue anyways?" camp. This women is just as extreme as the other side she is opposing I think.
White people, being the dominant culture here, have the privilege of (generally) not considering race. As a white person I am treated differently and most of the culture and our history (and history books, especially!) reinforces the power and worth of white people.
Even if she seriously considers Santa Claus to have been a real person and wants to anachronistically call Saint Nicholas (aka Nikndolaos of Myra) "white" and say we have to stick to that because he's a historical figure, well, she immediately contradicts herself with her "Jesus was white" nonsense. People - who presumably consider him a historical person - paint him whatever color makes them feel important/safe/happy. He has been played in major films by Max von Sydow, Robert Powell, Willem Dafoe and Jim Caviezel, all of them white.
If you can represent Jesus* as white then there is no reason you can't represent Santa Claus as, well, Ethiopian, Thai, Inuit, Hawaiian, from wherever.
* See also Moses (Charlton Heston, Russell Crowe), Cleopatra (an actual historical figure! played by Elizabeth Taylor, Hildegard Neil**, Lynn Redgrave), and so on forever.
** Opposite Heston as Antony. He also played Ben Hur, Ramon Miguel Vargas, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (El Cid) and John the Baptist [Yes, I realize I am now mixing real and fictional characters].
I don't think I'm hosting a 2016 collaborative playlist.
This is the dumbest thing I have seen today - and that's saying a lot because I've perused the "What's Your Best Of?" Thread:
"25 Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Black!" which varies from people who were quite obviously Black to people who are not, in fact, Black. Please note that the actual internal headline is "25 Celebrities You Didn't Know Were African-American" because words mean nothing now and everything is wrong.
