*audience laughs maniacally at hypnotic intervals*
>>37379246Can't tell if this is real but it's dead on accurate
>>37379246This is so accurate, you instantly know at what spots the [insert laugh track] is supposed to happen
I want to know the back room conversations between executives. >unleash the comedy fud, we’re bearish for two more months. Are the bogs really in touch with everyone?
Fuck this propaganda artist

you pay for the convenience to have an op magic card you can play. if the card is op then it has a lot of demand needs to fill a lot of decks
>>37379246I read this in his voice, you should become a writer, this is really good (although its pure shit) but I mean use your skills in a good way
>>37379246this guy looks a lot like the s o y i m in the chud memes
>>37379597he looks like he slurps up a dip or two
>>37379312It's on purpose, you don't want the group having to think to hard about what you're saying. They just need to know when they're supposed to laugh.
>>37379246I need no other motivation to become rich from crypto than to hire someone to off this smarmy cunt. Would be worth every penny.
My yugioh locals is next to a mcdonalds. I can't recall the amount of pulls i exchanged for a meal lol. I could definitely exchange them for groceries.

>>37379318i know he did an episode on cryptocurrencies, i watched it and it was very very similar to this greentext sadly
>>37379246I laugh. Laughing means I understand the subject matter. Understanding means I am smart. I am in the group. Haha... HHAHAHAHAH FUCK DONALD TRUMP
OI guv, you got a loisonce for those pregnant butts?
>>37379246What the fuck are you talking about? I avoid the crypto topic in minecraft especially when my wife is present. If anyone ask I don't own any coins at all
Classic /pol OCR'd and edited for consumption. All of John Oliver's segments follow the same repetitive format: present some "argumentation" and "facts" for about 10 seconds, then quickly follow these up with a snarky quip (which themselves overwhelmingly take the form of complete non-sequitur or otherwise absurd metaphor) before any rational processing of the preceding argument can take place in the mind of the viewer. Further telling is that the only 'beats' or mental pauses in the show's pacing exist solely to highlight the approving laughter or applause of the studio audience. Repeat this basic formula without variation 20-40 times in a row and you have one of the 12-20 minute 'segments' that form the backbone of the show The end effect is (obviously) not to deliver information, but rather to literally teach the viewers -- on a subconscious level -- to mentally associate derisive laughter with any person or opinion that is at odds with the narrative's take on the chosen issue. And it accomplishes this by maintaining a strict adherence to a roughly 20-second cycle in which a stimulus is presented, and a response is cued. This is the sense in which the show is fundamentally hypnotic in effect -- even moreso than its precursors in the genre (Daily Show, Colbert, etc). To my mind, oliver's show is representative of the media's increasing mastery of the methodologies of mass conditioning; in fact it is almost such a perfect technical accomplishment that I would almost have to admire it on technical grounds, which moreover is in the hands of the entirely wrong people.
>>37379312It's a half an hour comedy news show that needs to make people laugh and make a brief point.> REEEEE THEY DIDN'T HAVE AN IN DEPTH DEBATE ON THE VALUE OF DISTRIBUTED LEDGERS WITH PRE APPROVED EXPERTS FROM BOTH SIDES. I'M GOING TO MAKE FUN OF HIM ON THE INTERNET, REEEEEYou're a fucking child if you let this sort of shit effect you.
>>37379246>"YES MARK, YOUR CARDS ARE VERY COOL AND SHINY">"NO MARK, YOU CANT USE THEM TO BUY GROCERIES"But BTC can be used to buy shit, even clothing stores accept BTC now.
>>37379386100% sure this was never written by a psychologist. It's how a 21 year old with a 110 IQ imagines how smart people talk.
>>37379312No. No it's not decentralized.No, it doesn't have value other than speculative market value. No, it has no scarcity as I everyone can make their own crypto. Yes, it does destroy the environment.
>"WHAT MAKES THE TOKENS VALUABLE?" YOU ASK>GREAT QUESTION! NOBODY KNOWS!Wait till those faggots hear about the United States dollar.
>>37379316Hey now. Not too many redpills now. This is a business board something something pol thataway
>>37380474the united states dollar is valuable because of this
>>37379945>"Its just a comedy show! Oy vey!"
>>37380033Is any of it wrong? How?
>>37379246I tell ya, I get no respect. No respect at all. The other day I was telling my wife I could have made a killing on crypto if I had just come early. She says, "What's the problem? You do it all the time with me!"
>>37379246He's pretty funny for a white guy
>>37379945>It's a half an hour comedy newsExcept it's not funny and it's not informative.
>>37380808>(((white guy)))Oh anon...
>>37379246>"YES MARK, YOUR PICASSOS ARE VERY COOL AND SHINY">"NO MARK, YOU CANT USE THEM TO BUY GROCERIES"
this post is meant to be satire yet somehow still manages to make legitimate points that no one is seriously refuting
>>37379422If you go to the comment section of his youtube vids a minute as they are posted it will be nothin but bots with dozens of the same comments saying how much they like the show. There will be a few dozen different comments with hundreds of diff accounts saying the same lines its fucked
