    If you can read every single bio and not want to kill yourself I'll literally give you a million bucks. Sample:


    Kevin Trout is a true roadie. After going to school for photography, he went on the road for four years with Warped Tour, filming over 150 bands and becoming friends with people in every state across the US. But following rockstars wasn't enough. In 2007, Kevin joined up with IC's Band Tour to show us the ropes on Our first-ever Warped Tour. Since then, he's been working in Our art department editing Our films and "ballooning" people -- ballooning being the art of hanging a balloon on someone's back without them noticing. His first job in the art department was to type out the handwritten video log sheets...which ended up being over 1,200 pages long. We consider him pretty legit, but since he hates that word we'll just say he's a great guy that we love having around.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    Ye gods.

    ballooning being the art of hanging a balloon on someone's back without them noticing.
    Of all the questionable uses of the word "art" that are out there...

    Interesting thoughts.

    We constantly criticise Generation Y for being apathetic and having short attention spans, yet when hundreds of thousands of young people do get together to try to make a difference, we then call them "naive" or "slacktivists" whose idea of social change is sharing a video on Facebook.

    That's not a contradiction though. Sharing a video and then forgetting about it the next day is having a short attention span. Talking about something but failing to do anything is being apathetic.

    The charge may not be fair, or even at all correct depending on what you've seen, but it isn't hypocritical.

    Don't think those have been the main criticisms at those to be fair. A lack of research and the "all of a sudden you give a **** about the Uganda people?" are the main lines being thrown.

    Bangwagonism a factor too.

    Annoys me how people use the word "bandwagon" like it's inherently despicable.

    Bandwagons are how **** gets done, deal with it. Sometimes, it's okay to not decide you're superior to the majority.

    Of course, having found a way to feel superior to both parties, I am the real winner.

    It's the bangwagon jumpers who leap on a particular cause and then consider themselves to have suddenly become paragons of virtue that're the annoying ones though.

    Like people who watch a few games of a particular sport and then talk about it as if they're an authority on the matter etc...

    "Warne's ****, Saj Mahmood bowls faster than him!"

    Don't think anyone minds bandwagon jumpers provided they're under no illusions as to what they're doing.
