There seems to be an epidemic of pretentious douchebaggery in the world today. It takes many forms. Doesn't matter the area of interest, the level of society, or part of the world you are in, you will find a pretentious douchebag to ruin your day.
The "independent" douche.They think that something is better because fewer people have been exposed to it. This is simply not true. An independent movie/band/game is just like a mainstream release. Meaning 10% of them are great, 10% of them are shit, and 80% are somewhere in the middle. This rule holds true for everything in the field of entertainment.
People reading the bible in public, or saying grace in restuarants. You are in a Burger King, this is not an appropriate setting for anything like what you are doing here. What you are doing here is the sin of pride, and I thought you people were against that kind of thing. How does hypocrisy feel? Keep it in your home and in your church.
Gamers that make a huge deal out of using roman numerals when referring to sequels. It doesn't matter if that is how it looked on the packaging. 8 vs VIII is just about saving time when typing it out. If you want to make a big deal out of a problem in gaming culture; how about making hygiene a bigger priority when in public?
"I don't own a TV". So you spend all your time alone masturbating? Does this cause a lot of chafing and soreness? What is your lube budget? Has not having a TV ever got you laid or made you money? No? Didn't think so.
Anyone on an extreme politically. Right wing, left wing, it doesn't matter one damn bit. Either way they need to calm down, learn a little more history, and realize the world is too complicated simple extremes. Somewhere out there exist the cures for all the worlds ills. None of these cures will be found anywhere near an extremist stance. Likely that such cures won't be found anywhere in politics at all.
So yeah, douches are everywhere. Perhaps we could have an open season on them. Or we could start shaming the pretentious. Perhaps, and this is a radical idea, we could all collectively pull our heads out of our asses.
