My buddy can't read so all he watches is YouTube.
I don't think there's anything as incredibly annoying as Internet videos besides the fools who tout them as evidence for something.

A buddy of mine constantly sends me videos to watch. I delete them instantly. He's about 400 pounds and sits around all day watching them. I seriously doubt he has ever read a book in in his life. Pretty damn sad and pathetic.

Worst part is, he's always wrong about everything. I tell him to try and read some vetted material for once, not some dipshit kid's fantasy interpretation of a stranger's opinion or web rumor. Does not compute.

He is so mentally lazy. I can find no worthy excuse for anyone not reading books. Videos for the most part are bullshit and people who don't read are in a far lower echelon of intellect.

End of rant.

If he was not 400lbs I would not be worried.

If he was active and could not read, no big deal.

If he never understands words written by other humans, he is gifted.
Tell him to read nature and himself instead and turn of the media consumption, it isn't for everyone.

He's an armchair truth seeker. Not a bonified revolutionary. But he tries to fake it. I'll watch a video if its important. But if you're not reading books you're missing out on 95% of the truth.

I think its annoying because he's one of the few relatively awake and aware people I know so I hold him to a higher standard. But he's sort of new to the scene. Only been awake for 6 years or so. Maybe he needs more time.

Re: My buddy can't read so all he watches is YouTube.
some people are visual learners,they have problems interpreting written words, but can learn by watching visuals, sometimes by hearing spoken words, or by copying actions they see in videos.

I think your frustration comes from him not being able to discern whats a good thing to watch and whats not, youtube can suck for factual info if you take everything there as verbatim.

At least he tries to learn even if it is youtube.
at least hes not watching days of our lives and wanting to send you copies of that.

Not totally true, there are many video on YouTube that provide valuable and well thought out information.

Watching video on conspiracies will not be good though, a lot of them are a blurry video of a repitilian shapeshifting newscaster or something

YEAH lets read a book of ONE persons opinion, based on facts or whatever...

try reading the interent, I can find 20 different thoughts on a subject, come to my own conclusion of what is opinion, fact and fiction...

MAJORITY, of books are outdated, even soon after published...

this is not school back in the 80s, where you read the forced material given to you at the local library, school or bookshop...

tell your friend to stop sending you videos, and you need to read more on internet, and maybe watch a few more videos....or maybe you should just right your own darn books...idiot...
