So, who says they aren't? Maybe they're not focusing on the things YOU think are important, or things the OP thinks are important (like a comet) but who says they are not focused on many other things? Some are not, that's certain. But to make it sound like "people who are not concerning themselves with the things I find of importance in the world are mentally lazy" is just the normal superiority complex that many around here seem to carry, for no apparent reason, and it's crapola.
The OP is very clear in his intent. If you think different than the OP, you are "completely disconnected" which is a nice way of saying "ignorant" when most of what the OP is using as examples is simple political opinion. Well, except for the comet that will swing by and then be gone (if it even survives it's swing around the sun)and somehow some people's lack of knowledge of ison is evidence of some form of idiocy. It's "I'm superior and I need to let everyone know it" garbage.
Unless you are walking in their shoes, living their life, you really have absolutely no idea what any other person on this planet knows, is interested in, or has a passion for, in life. Having an interest in politics, conspiracy theories, science, technology, or the arts does not make any one person superior to others; it just makes that one person who that person is.
For example, I have a few friends who are really into guns, ammo, and shooting. I am not. Does this make them better than more or me better than them? Obviously not. I love researching American history. To many people that is pretty boring. Does that make me better than them? Hell, no. Does it make them "mentally lazy'"? No, it does not.
Does me wasting an hour or so every few days for kicks on ATS make me better than anyone else in life? No. Does it make you any better? No.
No one cares about anyone else anymore. It's sad, it's depressing and it makes me not want to care about anyone else anymore as well.
I really am starting to hate other human beings.
