    First?

    • etcrr

      best cure for stupidity is death

      • Sleep_Salone

        Best cure for getting your ass handed to you is to change your name…huh, Stan?

        • etcrr

          I realize that you have an obsession of hate for Stan. That's a huge waste of energy and time man, I'm going to tell you for the last time, I am not Stan. Yes he has been to my profile page and so I went to see what he was doing. Now , for your own sanity go back to the life you had before Stan and stop hunting him down. Dude maybe get some help ok?

          • Jinggneiou

            shut up, Stan.

            • etcrr

              dude get Proof, put up or shut up

              • Bill57

                Check the first (oldest) posts under your profile. You hit every photo of a post in order to comment and walk with two thumbs up…either you're Stan, or a long lost fucked up twin choad.

                • etcrr

                  Dude all that proves is that you are paranoid and delusional. I am not nor do I bother you.I have nothing to do with him(Stan) or you. So unless you are John, Leo, Bob or Rick I suggest, go bother someone else

                  • John,Leo,Bob,Rick

                    Nope…liar.

                    • etcrr

                      nice try but you'r an idiot

                    • Sleep_Salone

                      You may want to learn how to spell prior to calling someone an idiot. By the way Stanley, the "Shift" key is located on the left hand side of your keyboard.

    #8 shitty vacuum, my Dyson would suck that towel up like a starving Fat kid eating Cool American Doritos

    • Dujefaca

      yeah but one can vacuume without being plugged in..

      • chicago

        I defaulted that the guy had a battery ops. automotive vacuum. He can't be that stupid…

    • Jay Costanza

      Look like some of these comments belong in this stupidity entry. Obviously its battery operated, the pic is making fun of the fact that hes ON THE BEACH VACUUMING SAND OFF HIS TOWEL. As if this is any easier/more convenient than simply shaking the sand off.

    REDDIT.

    • pjsupremex

      did you see how CNN had a story on the Penn State scandal? So did Fox, HLN, ESPN, CBS, NBC, etc….. . point is that it isn't uncommon of a thing for media to have the same news,photos, videos, etc.. many of us don't care if reddit also has the same post, and frankly many of us chivers would not know because we are CHIVERS!

      get over it!

      Jamie Lee is awesome. The phone thing sucks, but i bet most of us here have followes a trend, even a stupid one, at least once in our lifetime. And then, she is Jamie Lee Curtis, the female equivalent of BFM. So she can do whatever she wants, and still be awesome

      • its_forge

        Somewhere out there is a web page that shows you how to convert an old Western Bell desktop phone, with the rectangular base, touch-tone keys, coiled cord, big handset, metal bell, into a cell phone. **That** I would like to have one day just to ride the public transit all the time and get phone calls and see the looks on people's faces.

    #24, YES, GET AN F—-ING JOB YOU DEGENERATE RETARD. WHO DECIDED TO TAKE OUT YOUR LOAN? WHO'S RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING YOUR LOAN BACK?

    • its_forge

      Some motherfucker told him that if he got a college education he'd be able to get a good-paying job and pay those loans back.

      This is barring him having a degree in Eastern Lithuanian Folk Art Traditions of the 15th Century or something mind you.

      • anon

        maybe he shouldn't believe everything he hears. Of course the people making money off of educating him will tell him its a worthwhile investment. Think for yourselves!

        • its_forge

          Says the guy who's where he is mostly due to good fortune or happenstance. There but for the grace go you, pal.

          • V4Vendetta14

            Yeah, that's how everybody gets to where they are. Happenstance… Do you even know the number of hours that the average Wall Street employee puts in before they even start making money?

            Who told you that you were supposed to be provided with a good living? You get a degree so that you can compete in the job force with the tens of thousands with degrees. I started out making close to minimum wage at a technology company. I took that job because it was a foot in the door at a good company. Within that first year I proved my worth as an employee and was promoted. I hustled my ass off when I started because I had a lot to prove to myself. I've been with that company, and its subsidiaries, for 14 years and make a good salary. I don't owe spoiled idiots like this anything.

            • its_forge

              You'll never hear me saying Wall Street people don't deserve to make the bucks, just that they should all put in more effort to do that without stripping the flesh off the backs of the working class to get it. I ignored all your blah blah blah about how hard you worked to get where you are because other people work just as hard and get shit, there is nothing, nothing at all that governs whether you hustle and bust ass and work like a fucking dog and win, or whether you do the exact same things and fail. Implying that poor people just need to work harder to keep from being poor is fucking ignorant and goddamn arrogant as fuck.

              • Seriously

                Here is arrogant as fuck….YOUR COMMENT. Obviously you feel that everyone DESERVES the same thing whether or not they provide anything useful to society or not. You think because you TRY real hard, you should be compensated. What kind of complete ass-hat are you? I feel bad for people who can't make it in the world, but guess what. TOUGH SHIT. If i want to do something about it, i will. (and do on occaision) I do not need greedy FUCKS like you and those pissants on OWS to TELL me who should GET MY MONEY. Now go back to being a loser. DICK.

                  I think everyone DESERVES equality as well as the right to a good standard of living. People also DESERVE to have a low infant mortality rate and a high life expectancy. But obviously your answer to this is TOUGH SHIT, I hope you actually realize people are not ascribed the same things in our country, so something as small as skin color can determine if you get a sub-prime loan or not, not your achievements.

                  • Eric

                    Haha! People are giving "thumbs down" to "low infant mortality"!! Haha! Screw you babies!!

                  • todrunk2

                    Everyone does not deserve equality. This is a world full of winners and losers, eat or be eaten. Socialism does not work, there needs to be a class system. If you are unhappy with your job, get a new one. Can't find a job, start a business. There is limitless potential in this country and it does not have anything to do with the color of your skin.

                  • no free ride

                    I am white and have a bachelor of science degree. I had scratch and save to put 20% down on my house like everybody else, and didn't get any break on the rate. I have a ton of debt because during tough times, we cut back and also run up debt instead of going on aid. We'll be paying it off for years but it's the right thing to do.

                • Eric

                  You're ignorant and proud of it.
                  The OWS is about corporate influence in government. Thanks to corporate influence your drinking water is dirtier, your food is less safe your rights are being taken away. Did you know that your right to sue a business in a class action is being taken away because AT&T bought a ruling from the Supreme Court?
                  Now, before you respond, I want you to tell me, exactly, how your "keep your head down and work hard" strategy is going to change that. How is that going to work?
                  No one is asking for a free ride, everyone is just asking that, maybe, just maybe, it not be ok for a corporation to bribe the government into letting them steal your water (which is happening in Texas and California) or send jobs overseas but STILL get American tax breaks (or pay NO taxes at all in the case of Exxon) or to let corporate run prisons write laws instead of, you know, the law makers.

                  Don't bother to respond unless your post contains answers to how "WORK HARDER" will solve any of those problems.

                  • The Ugly

                    I totally agree, people miss the point of occupy wallstreet (including that idiot in the photo). It's about ending corporate greed (which has a TON of influence in everything today).

                    p.s. Fuck socialism, communism, naziism and corporate geed!

                    p.p.s. 25000 isn't even that much debt, get to work asshole.

                      The UP/DOWN ratings on this thread give me a sliver of hope for the future. DO NOT QUESTION THE WISDOM OF THE CHIVE, and never forget that the end purpose of capitalism is to produce NYQUIL. Once you have achieved QUIL TECHNOLOGY your species deserves the Warp Drive — and you'll get it, too.

                    • Eric

                      Well there are two problems: the media is owned by the corporations these people are protesting so their very valid, and important message gets filtered through the enemy into "LOOK AT THE GUY DRESSED AS DARTH VADER HE WANTS YOUR MONEY, ALL OWS PEOPLE ARE LIKE HIM AREN'T THEY STUPID???"
                      And South Park has created the South Park Republican: a younger generation who's political beliefs are fed to them by a cartoon show about talking poop created by Libertarians. All they know is hippies=bad and the world is a very, VERY simple place where thinking and science only lead to bad things

                      And, frankly, I am 100% surprised that a website devoted to funny pictures supports giant corporations and millionaire so very much since the Occupy Wallstreet people are fighting FOR them, for all of us really, but especially the struggling middle class. Honestly if you don't make over $200,000 a year you should be right there with them instead of making assumptions about an entire movement based on pictures fed to you by the people they are protesting. You're trusting the FOX to tell you how many hens are in the hen house

                    • Mike

                      You know how i know you're stupid? Republicans and Libertarians aren't the same.

                      It could be that the younger generation just doesn't want to put up with the hippy mentality that gave the generation before us a bad name?

                      Also, if you think South Park inspires closed-mindedness and discourages "thinking and science" then you are completely missing the point.

                      Dumb ass.

                    • Eric

                      Yeah, I know they aren't, THAT'S WHY I USED TWO DIFFERENT TERMS.
                      In fact I didn't even USE "republican" I used "South Park Republican". The fact that you don't know that "South Park Republican" is a real and studied phenomenon in the realm of real political commentators says a lot about you. All of it bad I'm afraid ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
                      But, even so, where the hell did I say they were the same thing? Was it the part where I said Trey and Stone (both admitted Libertarians) created a show that created South Park Republicans? Was it the part where I said two things were two things?
                      I'm sorry to hear about your learning disability ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

                      I'll be sure to watch closer for the point the next time they mock global warming as being completely fake. I'm sure they used science and thinking to come to that conclusion

                  • VanIsleChiver

                    PrisonPlanet.com … all the answers are there

                  • todrunk2

                    It is a simple fact why jobs are going overseas, do you know why? It is because of the government, that's right, the government. It is because all of these people occupying wall street, demanding socialism, wanting higher minimum wage. This all costs money, tax payers and even more businesses. Business cost money to run. The more you pay employees, the more expensive your product is. Limited government is the only way this country will stay afloat.

                    • Eric

                      EXACTLY. They don't have a "minimum wage" in Somalia and they're doing……oof ummm…hmmm seems only third world hell holes don't have minimum wages umm…let's see…

                      See the problem here is you seem to think there is NOTHING between "naked, unchecked Capitalism" and "complete and total Socialist state" where, in reality, there are several major countries that have found a middle ground and enjoy longer, happier, better off lives than Americans.

                      REGARDLESS, you're making the point that if the people who run Wal-Mart were simply millionaires instead of billionaires they would pack up everything and go home. THAT IS RIDICULOUS.

                      I'll make you a deal, right now: I will give you ten MILLION dollars, I'll just give it to you BUT, you have to give 4 million to the government. OR, OR I can just give you 1 million.
                      Think about that for a minute and get back to me.

                      BUT REGARDLESS OF THAT, the OWS protests aren't about any of that. It's about the fact that you have less rights today than you did last month because corporations are paying off the government. LAWS ARE BEING WRITTEN BY CORPORATIONS. Your vote, no matter who you vote for, is worthless compared to the millions of dollars AT&T gives politicians. THE VERY FOUNDATION OF WHAT THE COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON is being subverted by money. (I'm sorry to use CAPS LOCK but I've said this before, I repeating myself because you aren't listening to what I said previously up above)
                      Do you HONESTLY think that the framers of the Constitution of the United States would be ok with private citizens buying more rights? Or paying to take your rights away?

      • robinsos

        These people need to face reality. I went to college and racked up astronomical student debt. Once I graduated, I didn't get the job of my dreams, I went and worked at a restaurant for three years, then took low paying jobs in my chosen field to get my foot in the door. I worked my way up and when I hit a road block, do you know what I did? I went back to school!! Now, ten years later, I have a good paying, stable job, and I'm proud of working hard to get here. You want to live in a socialist country and get free handouts? Sorry, wrong country, why don't you try France.

        • its_forge

          They don't want anything free you moron; they want a JOB.

          • paulhitchcock

            Umm…no. One of their demands is forgiveness of student loans. That means they get a free education. They also want nationalized health care…free for those who don't pay taxes.

            If they really wanted a job, they would go home, take a bath, and apply anywhere that is hiring. I'm a lawyer. If I lost my job, I'd be the first person in line at the nearest fast food restaurant or convenience store with a "Now Hiring" sign on the door. The problem is that these people don't just want a job; they want their ideal job. Instead of taking whatever is available, they feel like they deserve a job that fits their idea of their self-worth. I'd shovel shit for 15 hours a day if I meant I could feed my family without having to be on the government teat.

            Lets just raise taxes to pay off all these poor kids student loans. Oh, but who will we raise taxes for? How about business owners, they have money to spare. Wait a minute, are you telling me that when I raise taxes for business owners it puts a halt to their growth and they stop hiring? Well now I can't find a job in my chosen field. Fuck. Back to protesting I suppose.

        • Jack_LeMac

          Even most of the low-paying jobs are all taken in many areas; McDonald's can only employ so many people. So, I get what you're saying, everyone (generally) will start off at a foot-in-the-door type of position, but what happens when all of those positions are taken and there are still thousands upon thousands of applicants? I thought you might know since your personal story of moderate success will definitely work for everyone.

          • ShakeyTheMoyle

            Start a lawn care business…Invent some widget…get creative, or not. It's not other peoples fault that you may fail is it? If, "all those positions are taken"(highly doubtful) then walk around your neighbor hood and ask older people if they need any work done around their house. Most will probably say no, but there may be one or two that say yes. Maybe they have a friend or family member that needs some work.
            It's much easier to make a buck in the US then most people think. Anyway…just my 2cents

    • Jack_LeMac

      Wasn't the point of going to college to get a decent-paying job? Maybe after paying 25 grand for school he would rather have a job that pays a bit better than flipping burgers. Newsflash to the people just shouting "hurr-durr get a job": you're not fucking helping anything, and quite honestly you're coming off as assholes

        • ZachBob

          If you're so desperate for a job, hit up craigslist. You might have to suck a couple dicks, but money is money. And you might actually find a legit job there. I did.

          • ZachBob

            Thankfully not the sucking dick part.

      • Huzzah

        You didn't know? The job market is just flooded with openings.

        Honestly, if you're a student right now and you're not in health care (or a science major that translates) or a major that is energy-based (engineering, Geology, etc.), there's a decent chance you're struggling once you're out of college. In an article I read last week, 7 of the top 10 fields for employment were in one of those two areas.

        • VanIsleChiver

          bullshit! Too much emphasise is put on university degrees, the guy in the pic and thousands of others would have been better of getting a trade like plumbers/carpenters electricians etc.

          I love my Dr and Dentist but the world is full of university educated idiots!

          • Carpenter

            Normally I'd agree with you but the jobs for plumbers/carpenters/electricians are few and far between right now because the housing industry is in the shitter. Our new home construction company has been in business since 1930 and just laid off workers for the first time it its history. There is a lot to be said for the trades normally, it's honest work that pays well. Just not right now.

      • pjsupremex

        * Life isn't fair. The concept of justice – that everyone should
        be treated fairly – is a worthy and worthwhile moral imperative on which
        our nation was founded. But justice and economic equality are not the
        same. Or, as Mick Jagger said, "You can't always get what you want." No
        matter how you try to "level the playing field," some people have better
        luck, skills, talents or connections that land them in better places.
        Some seem to have all the advantages in life but squander them, others
        play the modest hand they're dealt and make up the difference in hard
        work and perseverance, and some find jobs on Wall Street and eventually
        buy houses in the Hamptons. Is it fair? Stupid question.

        • pjsupremex

          * Nothing is "free." Protesting with signs that seek "free"
          college degrees and "free" health care make you look like idiots,
          because colleges and hospitals don't operate on rainbows and sunshine.
          There is no magic money machine to tap for your meandering educational
          careers and "slow paths" to adulthood, and the 53 percent of taxpaying
          Americans owe you neither a degree nor an annual physical. While I'm
          pointing out this obvious fact, here are a few other things that are not
          free: overtime for police officers and municipal workers, trash hauling,
          repairs to fixtures and property, condoms, Band-Aids and the food that
          inexplicably appears on the tables in your makeshift protest kitchens.
          Real people with real dollars are underwriting your civic temper
          tantrum.

          • pjsupremex

            * Your word is your bond. When you demonstrate to eliminate
            student loan debt, you are advocating precisely the lack of integrity
            you decry in others. Loans are made based on solemn promises to repay
            them. No one forces you to borrow money; you are free to choose
            educational pursuits that don't require loans, or to seek technical or
            vocational training that allows you to support yourself and your ongoing
            educational goals. Also, for the record, being a college student is not
            a state of victimization. It's a privilege that billions of young people
            around the globe would die for – literally.

              * A protest is not a party. On Saturday in New York, while
              making a mad dash from my cab to the door of my hotel to avoid you, I
              saw what isn't evident in the newsreel footage of your demonstrations:
              Most of you are doing this only for attention and fun. Serious people in
              a sober pursuit of social and political change don't dance jigs down
              Sixth Avenue like attendees of a Renaissance festival. You look foolish,
              you smell gross, you are clearly high and you don't seem to realize that
              all around you are people who deem you irrelevant.
              * There are reasons you haven't found jobs. The truth? Your
              tattooed necks, gauged ears, facial piercings and dirty dreadlocks are
              off-putting. Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity isn't a virtue.
              Occupy reality: Only 4 percent of college graduates are out of work. If
              you are among that 4 percent, find a mirror and face the problem. It's
              not them. It's you

              • Jack_LeMac

                I never said life was fair and I never said anything was free. I'm a soon-to-be college graduate and I already have a decent-paying job, for which I'm extremely grateful. All I'm saying is that people who just say stuff like "get a job, even if you start at the bottom" clearly already have jobs and are not having to go through the application process, because even those bottom-level jobs are all spoken for in many areas. Fuck the left and fuck the right for all I care, just don't assume you can go pluck a job from the job tree whenever you want, because (and this is the important part) *most places are not hiring*

                • http://www.facebook.com/free2shred Shawn Michael George

                  Pick the right field. Sadly, we can't all do what we want. Hell, most of us will never even get the chance to try. Pick something with good benefits, good compensation and good stability and you won't have these kinds of problems. I picked something in the energy industry. I live in one of the major hubs in the US and it still took me over a year and a half of looking to find a job. BUT, I didn't give up and now I am making more money than I ever thought I would before I committed myself to my education. I come from a welfare family too with a lower class background. If I can do it, anyone can. Health care, energy, logistics, and surprisingly economics are all very strong fields right now. Take your pick.

                • Ima Dick

                  The problem I have with someone like that guy, who looks 23-25 years old at the most is that they are already upset with their lives at that age. If you've already given up on your career by age 25, then the job market isn't the problem, you are. I spent 4 years applying to jobs while bar tending after college before I even got a foot in the door of my chosen career path, and that foot was getting coffee for people for 2 years. Careers take time, something this current generation seems to have forgotten.

        I went to college and got a degree in Creative writing. I was expecting to get a job as an editor right out of college (that isn't reality at all). After months of searching for that "ideal" job, I went back to the company that I left to go to college in the first place. I haven't given up hope, I plan on doing better, but I also know that you have to start at the bottom to get anywhere. When all is said and done I'm glad I went to college (I wouldn't trade that experience for anything), and I'm glad I have a job. It could be worse.

    • the dude

      I'm yet again impressed with the american people, im form argentina, here people would mostly be defending this lazy person and giving him free money, if you want something pay for it, and if you dont have money find a way to make some, the world is full of people how have made there own money in adversity, as long as americans don't give in in to these kind of people, you'll do ok, grate things come from working and capitalism, look how much technology and the world as a hole has advanced in 100 years

There are a lot of trust fund babies and corrupt business leaders in America but there are also a ton of successful people who got there through hard work and determination.

      • Bawb

        I agree with what you've said, Boosh, but I'd like to point out that a lot of these people were literally raised under the belief that going to college and getting a degree in whatever their chosen field of study is would inherit them a decent paying job. It's probably a little more than annoying to end up in hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and still be working at McDonald's being told how stupid you are by a 45 year old man whose only skill outside of burger flipping is giving his mother an enema.. There are ways to force your way into any field, but again, that's not what these people were told as they grew up in our seemingly idyllic society.

          Actually, an impressive number of people with masters degrees don't type your and you're correctly even if they do understand the difference. And many people also use some form of shorthand; I for example missed some capitalization and apostrophes and quotation marks. But then again, I only have a bachelors degree, so it's allowed.

              I think you need to look up the word socialist. Listen closely to the statistics on the raising and lowering of the capital gains tax and it's impact on revenues. When the capital gains tax was lowered to 20%, revenues went up. When the capital gains tax went up to 28%, revenues went down.

              Obama preached at the fairness of taxing a secretary and a hedge fund manager at the same rate. A secretary making 50K and a hedge-fund manager making 50 million should not be taxed at the same rate. While the secretary will pay her taxes and bills, the hedge fund manager will invest that money in stocks, bonds, businesses, and real-estate. Only one of those two will ever create a job.


    • educated

      Who said OWS wants socialism? They/we have NEVER said that and that is NOT what OWS is striving for. Stop listening to the news (owned by large corporations) and THINK FOR YOUR SELF. Do some research about OWS. Talk to people that are involved. Get the REAL facts.
