“…I have a working theory that most human beings will go their entire lives without telling me something truly important.”

John Cole, on his blog balloon-juice

    What the fuck does “truly important” mean?

    John Cole sounds like a douchebag.

    I believe he is setting a very low threshold for “truly important”, and if you read the blog, which I am not necessarily suggesting you do, I think he is saying that most people are morons, particularly those who declare that they have something “truly important” to say. douchebag

    You’re missing my point. What makes him a douchebag is not that he thinks most people are morons. Most people are morons.

    What makes him a douchebag (or reveals him as a douchebag anyway) is feeling the need to tell the world that he is sitting there waiting for people to approach him and tell him something that in his view is “truly important,” but that he has no expectation that anyone will do so.

    Fuck him. Who does he think has the personal goal of telling him something truly important? His mom?

    Tell him to send me a list of all of the “truly important” things he thinks he has to say and until then to shut the fuck up.

    There’s nothing in life that’s “truly important” because in the long run we’re all going to die in a Segway accident. So drink up and smoke ’em if you got ’em, cause one day the coffin lid is going to slam shut with a resounding thud.
