Since I've been quoted twice for that statement I'll clarify a tad even if most of you knew what I meant.

All you have to be is normal to be a shining star at most work places. It's because everyone else sucks. No one is worth a shit nowadays.

I can get anyone a 12$/hour job where your main duty is not falling asleep, literally. Requiring more effort on my part I can get someone a higher paying job. ive never done either. Because I don't want them to fuck up, be shitty at the job, or fail a drug test. It would reflect poorly on me if I vouched for them.

I meant it when I said I'm not special. Uncommon is a better word and it's sad that's the case.

I'm not special. I'm just a normal guy that works. Apparently that's a rarity these days.
hah you make me laugh. ppl like you was always problem in "former" communist countries, because you are not member of majority brainwashed idiots

2012-2017 president of Serbia was "ex communist" who had 3 years highschool and job title Construction Worker Assistant who was taking out dirt because he was to stupid for anything else, and become politician

He became a politician... you became an asshole.

I agree with Haunted.

Years ago, someone who came in and did their job and did not cause any problems was considered a normal/average worker.

Today at many jobs, just doing what is required and not causing any issues makes you an excellent employee.

I think what Haunted is saying is the worker performance/expectations level has changed over the years.

That looks more like the script shit on the ring from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Definitely not jawa scribble.

And I just wanna thank Nancy Pelosi for setting us all straight that the fine young men who make up the Mara Salvatrucha 13 gang are human beings with a "spark of divinity" (wank wank wank) just like everyone else. They are NOT animals! What wonderful guys they are. You should all let them date your daughters. They probably won't rape them.

And another thing. The Royal fuckin' Wedding.

Royalty? You people have a fuckin' Queen? Really? Did the Wizard show up and use his magic staff to ward off the evil dragon from attacking the wedding procession? ::)

This is proof that British people are nicer and more level headed than Americans. Because if that were America, we'd be burning down Buckingham Palace and demanding the abolishment of all royalty/nobility/whatever the fuck. "It's just for show. They're really just figureheads these days." Are you shitting me!?! Those are some EXPENSIVE fucking showings, all of them getting a lavish ultra-upper-class free ride on the tax payers dime, all of them riding around in 4 million dollar highly customized Rolls Royce's with ballistic glass and armor plating and beefed up engines.

What the fuck ever. Maybe it ain't my place to talk shit about how people do things in a country I wasn't born in...

But if John Oliver can talk shit about my government, then fuck his Queen all the same.

John Oliver acting like he's the voice of reason with everything leaning hardcore left annoys me. He'd annoy me if he leaned right doing the same routine too.

Red coat Yankee bastard.

The effusive titling of the video aside, a rather amusing conversation/debate on the topics of affirmative action, "white privilege", etc.
