Good news: I GOT MY CAST OFF MY HAND :D Its weird being able to type normally again, but the good news is that my hand has pulled through and is as good as fixed now :D. The Bad news: It is currently the first round of midterms down at UM, meaning ill be occupied with tests for at least the next week and a half as ill have my life dictated by studying.

That being said though I now believe I can select a date for the return of the Weekly Stupid. SEASON 2 STARTS ON MARCH 1ST :D

(It falls on the first friday after my exams end)

Feel free to start submitting material you think should be on the show, and feel free to use this thread to protest the show too. Might as well be efficient and conserve internet space you know?

I nominate the DDO elite video (particularly the YYW part).

The material that gets featured on the show is material that is either blatantly false or material that is based on idiotic logic.... Not just anything you dont agree with or find offensive, its a typical noob mistake to make though dont feel bad about it

Oh, I'm sorry that I thought the Weekly Stupid features all stupid things.

I'm sorry for coming off as snappy. I don't really want to start any kind of flame war right now.

Thats also a common misconception... The show is structured around the idiot host picking some of the funniest quotes submitted to him by users and then he gives some amateur jokes about each one. Then he uses his nerd powers and tons of spare time he has due to lack of a social life to entertain people for ten minutes or so...

Have you considered adding "...and now for something completely brilliant" at the end of the weekly stupid where you have something to cancel out all the stupid; i.e. something profound, objectively smart, clever, witty, etc...

Even better.

I may even start keeping track of how many people get on the weekly win if the show beings a good amount of attention to debates featured on it

The comments in this debate -____-

http://debate.org...

With an ELO of 1637, and arguing against people who's ELO are much higher than his, he still ends up saying, (stubborn as always)

"Maybe that's because the rational people didn't want to read a debate in which Pro is the obvious winner?"

Just wondering, what "type" of forums are the Weekly Stupids on again?

As in, funny, history, science etc. (That type of "type")

Why is this a stupid comment? We were arguing about racial difference in IQ, and you were trying to make the case that races don't exist, or are irrelevant. The topic was not the latter.

You equate rationality with ELO, which is nonsense. Also, I fail to see how you are being any less "stubborn" than you claim I'm being.

Because races existing presupposes that there are differences between races.

It does not presuppose significant differences in intelligence, which was the topic.
