Some of the dumbest garbage online

These people are incredibly dumb, inexperienced and completely lacking in self awareness. They are quite frankly lucky they live in a time and place where, for whatever reason, the brain dead majority sees fit to indulge their rambling nonsense. I cannot believe I live in a world this dumb. Some 15 year old kid is making a trash collecting ship to help solve actual problems, 10 year olds in Pakistan are expected to work and make an income for their family while these privileged idiots are wasting the public’s time with idiotic nonsense but I’m the bad guy if I disagree, you know with facts and reason.
