First of all, that's probably some random dork's facebook profile pic.
No language professors even know him, let alone "Hate" him.
The video, if I was stupid enough to click on it, would not be "shocking"
and there are no "sneaky" linguistic "secrets".
Are there really enough people in our society stupid enough to click on this crap that it makes it worthwhile for the scammers?
The thing that bothers me even more is that I see them plastered all over news sites.
Then again, I watched an episode of some repo game show on Spike TV the other night where all you have to do is basically breathe in order to save your car from reposession. They ask 5 really basic questiones and if you answer 3 of them correctly, you keep your car. The host asked this person what theory states that the universe started as a single point and exploded into existance. The contestant went with "Planet Theory".
I think it's time for two internets. One for this crap, and one that doesn't allow advertising.
