This guy's self-help stuff is boring, recycled garbage IMO. I don't understand how anyone could watch a video with this guy and say, "man, I'm not enough of a man in control of my life... I want to be like THIS guy!" He sounds like Kermit the Frog meets a thick-accented Canadian, and has a very odd way of interacting and arguing with people.

His political opinions are just a ride of this wave of anti-SJW-nonsense, which somewhat valid gets sooo damn old.

I feel like he has nothing of real value to add to either self-help or political debates, much less debates about truth.

But I doubt any here are surprised I'm not much of a follower of the guy... :)

Bill Burr and Jim Jeffries, this is fucking hilarious, but also thought provoking.

I quite like the biological & zoological tidbits.

He’s quick. I can be that quick with my friends, joking around, but not under pressure with strangers.

Good enough. Never mind JP. If moda thinks some anti-SJW stuff is valid, you know the far left has gone off the rails. O0

Oh, I think he loves it. The heat is off him, and he can let all these children battle it out.

1177 BC, The Year Civilization Collapsed

110' long, interesting talk. It's neat to hear all this tied together, since in school and reading (and playing Age Of Empires) I only really learned about these civs in isolation.

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
