Me thinks the Internet is FULL of IDIOTS!!

So, just a quick little post, then I guess I'll start posting some real stuff, since I have a small break. Finished my last class ever at New Paltz today!!

So Goosaba ( sent me a little link to a video called "Roots of Breakdance" which appears to be old footage of Russian dancers put in sync with a Run - DMC song. Check it out here.
Well, I decided to just post a little query, thought maybe I could get people thinking... BOY! Was I wrong... here are the responses so far:

Original Post:
Hmmm, just because it looks old doesn't mean it is old. I think it'd be sweet if that footage really was as old as it looks, but can we be so sure? Anyone have any proof that it's old?

I never saw this particular clip, but I am old enough to remember Red Army dances broadcast live on U.S. tv.

Are you for real? Never saw russians dancing like this?? Sheesh, world got dumber...

If you would read my post, neuro666, I was just challenging whether this was real or not. I never said anything about not seeing Russians dance. And as for anyone seeing these guys dance, you'd have to be quite old to have seen THESE guys dance. Do you always trust every video you see? If so I know not many people dumber than you!

This is a really well known and old Russian folk dance. Think centuries. How you've never seen at least something like it before, I can't imagine.

Dude (kuuran), are you serious? Where in my post do I say I've never seen anything like this before. I have seen something "LIKE" this. I WAS JUST ASKING ABOUT THE VALIDITY OF THE AGE OF THIS PARTICULAR VIDEO!!! Read my post again, it's in plain English...


Well, that's it so far.

It's amazing to me how quick people are to attack what you say... No, actually, that's not that amazing. What is astonishing, however, is how the ones who are so quick to attack don't even really pay attention to what you say. Not once do I say that I've never heard of or seen Russian dancers or dances. I was plainly wondering if the video is as old as it seems.

And is that such an invalid question these days? I doubt it. I mean there are so many fake videos and photos out there, why are these two guys so quick to defend something they don't even know is real? I just don't know...

El Numero Uno!!

Well, here it goes. My first foray into the world of blogging... It makes me feel a bit old when my friends have blogs and I don't. I guess I'll have to go out and get a cane one of these days, damn hip! Let's see where this goes...
