Best English Language Rant on Youtube Ever

The Amazing Athiest, slightly less angry than I am most days:

Wow. That's so little to be angry about, really.

What does one expect, though? English is a language cobbled together from a bunch of other languages with many words and such "borrowed" from even more languages. Some "rules" are needed to sort out and make sense of the inconsistencies.

I, for one, tend to bristle at abuses of the Queen's English. But that's just my anal-retentive manner.

The vid was comical though. For a guy who puts up so many vids, you'd think he could do a little better with his background don't you?

Once upon a time, I used to be a scientist, writing papers about the effects of things, and the affect they could be having. I could NEVER grasp the difference. It drove me mad.

I couldn't hear what he was saying because my eyeballs were spinning at the 'art' behind his head

Not sure why you're trying to sell yourself as 'angry' as an affectation (or should that be effectation) for your blog persona. That guy is a million times more angry than you. Well, outwardly at least.

Actually laughing.

And I never watch Youtube stuff on blogs, let alone laugh at it.

Rob ~ Yes, English is a trifle odd. I think he's just moved and likes said ackground. I should probably not watch so many of his videos.
Huw ~ A scientist, in Cricklewood? I can't see that. Or had you already quit?
Lulu ~ Better that artwork than the plain crack of my walls.
Anon ~ Not sure. Hard to call. I think he seems more angry because you can see him yelling.
PDEWYMO ~ At least you're happy - apart from the end when you've become angry.
MM ~ Hey, they voted in Obama. They've got my respect again.
