documentary a must see
Ok oope, listen.
Just because you find a documentary relevant and thrilling does not mean the rest of the world must see it. If you were to give a detailed analysis of this said film, rather than just 2 lines that look like you got it off of the back of the DVD case, then I may show some interest.
That being said, this documentary may actually be good. however, after seeing a million similar threads in this style, I cant be asked to click on a link that someone throws at me.
Then the idea that you may not agree with the main idea of the film, but rather your political stance, comes into play, and more or less makes whatever you say a bias.
More annoying than that would be the documentaries that predict the end of the world via a giant mega-corporation that owns all and sees all, mainly because we were too foolish to act back then.
Finally, after seeing too many of these threads so far, i can give you a summary of the following posts:
in the next 3 posts, someone will write a very large wall of text, either for or against your idea. That idea serves as trollbait, bringing more and more arguments in, all the while people are going in and out of the thread, making mundane comments like mine and never giving a second thought.
While the majority of the populace will have moved on, there will be 2-3 people who will continue to argue with each other, necro'ing this thread back to the front page where it will block more interesting and relevant threads. This flame war will continue until either the mods lock it, or people just give up after pages and pages of nobody caring.
Then, when all this is done, 4 or less days later, someone else will post a new thread on a documentary involving a controversial, political, or downright ******ed topic, and the cycle will begin anew.
NOT THIS TIME.
I say we make this thread about kittens. What would be the best kind of kitten for a crazy cat lady to own? What food should you not give kittens? Can kittens fly?
I expect these answers to be clear, concise, and humorous, with each comment still paying respect to the OP by quoting some part of it.
TL; DR: thread is now about kittens. To prevent this from being locked too early, please quote the op and see if you can find out his viewpoint on kittens by mixing quotes. That is all.
EDIT: After reading the more in depth description on the site linked, i believe that this is a doomsday or a WAKE THE **** UP sort of documentary which often calls for such terrible changes that the world would be worse off if they went around.
