guess we're just have to use jazz hands instead.

Do you realize how offensive this is to people with missing fingers?

I also find jazz hands offensive, since I don't have hands. I type with my nose.

Then good reason to terminate the human race.  I will clap for that.

Or only allow Zen monks in the audience, because they know "the sound of one hand clapping".

That explains why your posts are Snotzi.

The video becomes an exciting ad for what appears to be one of the Drake's Fortune's video games.  I totally stopped listening while the train fight was going on, and then I guess the narrator was saying something important, and his message came on the screen as a printed page, blocking out the video game.  This annoyed me, as I was totally into the game.  Was the video a metaphor for what was being presented?  What am I missing?  Does anyone know what game that video came from?  I think I might want to buy it.

He does that on most of his videos, advert for some game or another.
Maybe that is what financing his videos?
I ignore that and just listen to what he has to say.

More reasons why the US isn't European ...



We need Putin to invade and tame these savages!

And I have become a total fan of Styxhexenhammer666.  I like his style and the way he trashes current society.

Interesting, because every source I see says that all that has happened is that the Student Union has encouraged the use of BSL over clapping, and that they neither have the authority to ban clapping at events nor even desire to.

I see the truth is still all you two care about.

But of course, I am sure some random on youtube knows more about it than the organization that proposed it themselves...

Im not sure on the legitimacy of this video, but in my own personal experience, I've dealt with at least 1 or two of these nuts lmao

I had a writing teacher in high school that gave us negative points towards our grade if we clapped. We had to do the fucking jazz hands. Each clapping instance was a check minus, 10 check minuses was a full letter grade reduction.

My friend Alex fucking clapped while she screamed "check minus!!!!" at him until he had 10 check minuses within a single minute. He was a true american hero.
