The Surprising Truth About Rejection
This “rejection expert” complains about being turned down by childhood crushes and being bullied in 8th grade for fifteen minutes. I know these are meant to be sad stories, but I just can’t seem to stop laughing. He looks like Jacob Williams, the token white guy on the Wild n Out reboot campaign. At one point, his girlfriend dumps him, which prompts him to spend “the next four months developing courage” before he finally gains the nerve to pursue his life’s passions: DJing, traveling, and working for himself. Of course lol. His website declares himself as a pioneer of video game addiction. Well done, Ted.
I was an MS-13 gang member
I’m not in a gang. Don’t really know anybody who is in a gang. I don’t know much at all about gang culture, but… Ironically, I can tell immediately that this man was never in a gang. It seems Ted has cast the most unlikely Latino to front like he was MS-13 for just over sixteen minutes. After a heart-wrenching recollection of the great lengths he had to take as a kid to avoid being targeted by gang members (having to go miles away from my apartment just to escape), he quickly pivots to speaking about how every other gang was jealous that he eventually ended up joining MS-13. This grown man sounds like he is telling a story about how all his classmates in fifth grade were jealous of him for making the sixth grade basketball team. Always entertaining to see an ex-gang member telling a crowd of upper middle class white people what it was like to join and “quit” a gang and then make a motivational speaking career out of it. lmao
What if you could trade a paperclip for a house?
This is some homeless ass shit right here. “What if you could trade a paperclip for a house?” is a question only two types of people may wonder: an inmate facing life in prison, or an enterprising homeless man. Unsurprisingly, Kyle MacDonald is neither. He is just a typical white man he thrusts himself into the fantasy world of the barter economy until he finally ends up flipping his red paperclip for a real house. A true underdog story.
What a 15 year old meth addict taught me about leadership
The Ted Corporation must be well-versed in the philosophy of click bait. This is a must-see video just based on the title. Regardless of anything this grown ass man has to say, you can’t get much more “white man savior” complex-y than tucking your Banana Republic no-iron button-down into dark-washed jeans and giving a Ted Talk about how volunteering to help a fifteen year old meth-addicted-minority actually gives YOU the most important insights on leadership. An alternate title for this Ted Talk: White Undercover Detective Explains How To Interrogate The Underprivileged.
How I built a nuclear reactor at the age of 13
Another chapter in the best-selling book of the post-modern age: Children Doing Adult Sounding Things. It is really evil to stifle creativity in the youth, but these adults were lying to this kid’s face when they pretended to be impressed with his $2,500 “nuclear reactor” made out of his sister’s fish tanks. Think Chopped Junior meets The X-Factor but written in an unusually hard to understand young Brit accent.
