Comment It's a race to the bottom. (Score 1) 410

Going off-grid an living in middle of nowhere sounds better every day. Of course that is not a effective and sustainable solution that can accomodate everone. :D

Just working hard and long is not the road to a great life if you are working on the wrong thing. Lyft, Uber, Fiverr etc. are among those. Working hard at creating those companies might have been.

No they don't
This is yet another example of the outrage culture. We have seen examples of people being outraged at companies because they saw ad's from the companies in front of videos with content they didn't agree with.
Don't ever be afraid to think that you have over estimated people ability to think.

Comment I like more space. (Score 1) 266

On my last flight from CPH to LAS and back again(about 10 hours each way). I booked a 1000$ seat instead of a 500$ seat to get a "premium" seat, and it was worth it. I could open my laptop and play games, I there was room for my legs and even to each side in the seat, I could even recline my seat enough to get a decent nap.
But often you don't have the option of a seat double the price, you have to pay three or four times as much as the next step up.
I have been traveling with other people that are below the average size for scandinavians, and that always say that they have no problems with the small seats, and yet their elbows are always entering my space. :)

I sure am happy that I can repair my old pinball machines, that every nut and bolt has a part number so I can find a replacement part.

They sure wouldn't have lasted for 30 years without repairs.
They still fulfilled their role and made money for the original owner somewhere.

For some reason, the meat of the story, that main steam media are being so dishonest, seems to be ignored by many commenters here.
I don't watch his videoes myself, but I am truly disgusted and disappointed by the main stream media. Specially in the times we are in where they are under attack for being dishonest, I had hoped that they all would make an effort to fly straight, but they are all spiralling down into the instanity that I do not care for at all.

Comment Re:Death To All Jews (Score 1) 920

But how all the traditional media outlets are creating drama to get clicks and twisting the truth are going to be their downfall. Their ethics are no better than sites like, Wired, Gizmodo, Huffinton post, Buzzfeed etc. who also are twisting the truth or outright lying to get more viewers og cater to their demographic.
