    Just what we need - more all or nothing thinking. NOT :roll:

    I know there is an element of "humor" in all of these attacks, but there is also a serious side to this discussion, which I will continue to address and emphasize. I'm a Centrist - instead of seeing only the bad in Conservatives and Liberals, I see the good in each and keep the good ideas from each side. I think the world would be a better place if we did that. Jesus Christ had tremendous moxie, and so did Darwin. I admire Jesus Christ because a lot of people thought he was an asshole, but he stuck to his guns, just like Darwin. I'd prefer not to focus on the negative qualities of either of them.

    That's a surprise to me. I think you will find, as you produce more of these vlogs, that you have a natural knack for performance and public speaking. You certainly have the "look" for it! Any actor who uses a script uses the same process you've just described - you take down notes, and speak after carefully thinking things through. You say it's easy to maintain composure without an audience, but I think you will find that, with material like this, you will get a positive reaction from the crowd, which will feed your performance, and take it to new, unexpected heights.

    And Nebby is being humble. Ole Dad fucked that monkey species into near extinction. Had his way with the females so often that the male monkeys wouldn't go near them after a while. :naughty:

    I've not posted videos here before, but now that there's a forum in the forum for it I feel compelled. I hope these ramblings inspire you.

    :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    ""What is wrong with you? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU AMERICANS!?"

    Classic. Best video yet. Penetrating. Unflinching. Incisive. Investigative. Hungry. You look like a young Yul Brenner with hair. Thirsty. Daring.

    I think you have raised some very important issues in this video, and have truly broken new ground. I don't think I've ever heard Ronald Reagan compared to Kim Jong-Il, but now that you have made this comparison, the similarities are painfully obvious. It's like the guy that made the egg stand on end by smashing it on the floor - why didn't I see it before? I feel like a frog that has been put in a pan with the heat being turned up in small increments, only to have a young Yul Brenner/Chow Yun Fat-type point at the temperature gauge and scream, "IT'S FUCKING BOILING IN THERE!!!"

    It was great to see you use more humor in this video, especially towards the end. Because who couldn't not laugh at the sorry state of this nation, run by the ghost of Ronald Reagan, posthumous fascist dictator? Hahaha! It's so stupid it's funny!!!

    But seriously, it was really great to see you laugh, and I think you should use it more during the lecture. Your smile will melt the audience, if I'm any judge of speaking ability, and I attended two years of film school at Columbia University in the City of New York, so I think that my opinions in this matter have, well, a great deal of validity. There, I learned that one of the most important tools of stagecraft is sexual presence. This is why Marlon is the greatest actor in history. You have this quality in spades, and you should use it. When you glower at the audience, it's a powerful expression of your sexual dominance, and will be a very effective technique, especially if there will be women attending this lecture. And even if there are no women in the audience, it also works on men - take it from me! :wink:

    What's the next topic? I can't wait, because from what I've seen here - we ain't seen nothin' yet.

    Am I mistaken, or did I hear the cries of caged orangutans about half-way through that video?

    Smitty, you have no screen presence at all. Do you even watch these things before you post them, because you seem to be getting more boring as time goes on? Don't know what Merk is smoking, but these are lame-o.

    That's a little uncalled for. I think it's sad that someone can watch us destroy ourselves like this and give us the tools we need to overcome our situation and all some of you can do is trash him. Maybe you're all feeling a little guilt that you didn't think to do something about it yourselves. Vlogs have the potential to reach millions. All you need is the right person to share it on Google+ and you've gone viral and inspire millions!

    Keep it up Neb! I know they're going to get better and better. Looks like you've finally found your format.

    It's time we take up Nebby's banner and fight back! I'd like to know why he cares about what happens to us because we're doing it to ourselves. I should've done this myself years ago.

    Since we're all simians, I guess I could do both.

    I don't see why it has to be such a big deal that I "stepped out of line" with the prevailing narrative being presented by the people running this website. It's a real shame. A real shame.

    Keep going, Nebiros.

    The posturing was a comment regarding your conduct holistically, not this thread specificity, in this thread you have broken through to honesty.
