With all the Gloom and Doom in the world it's refreshing to hear someone point out just how ridiculously impatient, lazy and ungrateful many of us have become. Everything is AMAZING and nobody is happy....

I thought many here would appreciate the comedic roast of who we have become in the 21st century. I had a friend who would roll his eyes because it took too long to microwave his "Glutten-Man" TV dinner.

A whole 6 minutes...


Enjoy

I worked in the cell phone industry, I used to go on rants against complaining customers...

"Do you understand, that this little hand held device, tracks a signal from a cell tower, routes the call instantiously over the air to a tower, that than tracks and routes the call while you move, no matter where you go. It than instantly hands the call to the next tower mid call, all with out you knowing it.

Its a damn miracle and amazing"

Yea, we all walk around with more processing power and communication ability than the Apollo moon missions and still people Bitch.

I love Louie CK, awesome comedian..

Very funny clip, everything he said was hilarious, but also so true. Been feeling quite down today and this made me laugh. Thanks for sharing

Yes we in the west have become a pampered bunch, who seek immediate gratification in every aspect of our lives. Heaven forbid the internet goes down. There is a website and meme called "First world problems" that highlights the nature of our pampered state.

Having said all that, despite my health issues, I still find myself being more happy than unhappy. I have great friends and family and am lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world. Things could be so much worse. I try not to take these things for granted. The vast majority of the worlds population have it a lot worse than most of us in the west can imagine. Almost half the world, 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 a day.

Oh boy, I sure get this. In our home theater room, we have a 120" screen with an HD projector, that's almost like being in a movie theater - and my 11-year-old gets mad that it takes a few seconds to get the system to boot up when you turn it on.

When my nephew was a toddler he wanted to change the channel on the TV. He walked around the room and couldn't find the remote.

He then just shrugged his shoulders and sat down giving up on changing the channel

My dad used to make my brother go change the channel for him!
Those days before remotes...


Funny, I remember dad doing that, but I don't remember not having a remote. Weird

My Grandfather would hide the remote in the drawer. He was afraid it could start a fire. As if it was somesort of Star Trek Phaser....

{He was a bit out there at that age}

This is all too true. I see so much of that in my own son. We had an ice storm here in 2007 that dropped power for up to two weeks in some areas. I swear the lack of video games and access to the net was harder on many than the lack of lights after dark or lack of heat in freezing temps. It's so crazy, we really do have to laugh.

I can remember not having a remote and only having two and half channels when there wasn't cable and the signing off patriotic bit when the stations went off the air.

I feel like an old man when I think about those kinds of things.

I think we are all guilty of it.

My first computer had a 25 MHz, 4 MB of RAM, and a 160 MB hard drive with 600 baud dial up...

Now I got a top of the line gaming machine, with Fios Internet at 150mbits, and I still bitch when my downloads seem to take a bit of time...

Growing up and had a tv that only had 3 channels Saturday morning Sunday mornings Godzilla,and Star Trek


Have to agree with that dude people have become spoiled and ungrateful and think the world revolves around them go ask your parents, and grandparents had.

Funny video,sad video and to echo everything is amazing today and nobody is happy far too many people cry about what the don't have never looking at what they do have.

A few trillion websites to play, chat, and learn stuff on.
400 TV channels.
Cell phones to call anyone in the world.

And, I'm bored!

When time travel into the past comes available, don't be lookin' at me!

I remember the first computer I built from scratch. The guy at the computer store told me not to skimp and make sure I get at least 8 megs of system RAM. Oh yeah and he told me I'd never fill up that new massive 3 Gig harddrive that just came out

As to not date myself too badly - I'll stick to i486 chips....

I paid about $3,000.00 - happily for a system that ran Win 3.1, had 4 megs of RAM ( smokin' fast ), 250 meg hard drive and a 25 mhz processor. It was totally state of the art and I proudly bragged about my killer 486.

And THAT made me the "big kid on the block" for about five or six months...

Yeah... but the hard drive was big enough because it's hard to fill things up on a 9,600 baud phone modem.



I want my $3,000.00 back now... and I wanna kick one of those geek-squad kids in the grapes for ripping me off.

When I was a kid and my Grandmother passed away we inherited a big color console TV with a remote that really made a clicking sound when you pushed the buttons. 3 days later the younger of my two older sisters came running into the living room tripped and spilled the glass of milk she was carrying into the back of the TV and POOF!


My parents said that's THAT. We for the next 2 years watched the old tiny black and white tube..
