That article should inspire a slogan for Youtube "Youtube, amplifying your embarrassment 1,000,000 times since 2005". These days people can`t let others embarrassing moments kept between the people involved.

"The only difference between genius and stupidity, is that genius has its limitations. (or something like that)" -- Albert Einstein

Hey, I know, today I`m going to tape myself clog dancing in a pink tutu, with the music `Oops I Did it Again` playing. Then I`ll post it on YouTube and make tons of friends! I`m sure that won`t back-fire on me.

Ew. So many words. I guess you do have to feel bad for them, though they have made certain parts of my life a bit better and much more enjoyable.

How true that is. Human life holds no value to people anymore. What a shame to the human race.

I feel bad for most of these people. One stupid act and you are famous for it for the rest of your life. You become a joke. That sucks... I mean who among us hasn`t done something so stupid that if it was on tape would make us into a joke? I know I have done at least a dozen of them. We should start a support group for these people.

Have absolutely no pity for the "Impossible is nothing" tool (Aleksey Vayner); he could stand to be humiliated. I`m done being fed this success mentality by the shovelful--a person is more valuable than their income, their status, or their achievements.

Dear Lord. It`s a video, get over it you pansies.

But I do agree that the comments people make about the people in the video`s are pretty rough to look at and ignore if you`re not used to internet idiots.

IE: "what a fat white american bitc h go eat a burger and get fatter"

"Stupid fat kid go take a walk and quit stuffing your face and find SOMERTHING REAL TO DO OMGGGGG"

I`d learn to live with it but since I don`t have a video like that up of me I can`t really speak, even though it is annoying just as an observer.

These are the best links. I love big articles like that because they`re so much more satisfying than just a small clip. People should post more of these mini essays.

You heard the guy. No pity for the hoseheads that tape themselves. In today`s age, if you are in public or tape anything yourself, you are fair game.

CONTROL YOUR RETARDED IMPULSES.

Anyone remember the two jackwads that did the piledriver off of the roof? Man I want to see them now. And their shiny wheelchairs.

It must suck to be harassed because of one single screwup, especially if you`re entire career goes downhill because of it. No pity for the ones that taped themselves though. Or at least less pity.

If you put a video up on the internet like the numa numa guy you have no right to complain, you put it up. If you are dumb enough to film yourself badly swinging a golf club and then leave the tape in a school machine you shouldn`t be surprised when it ends up on the internet. If someone secretly films you and distributes it on the internet then you can be mad.

These ones weren`t very good. There are so many worse ones on Youtube than these.

But I love Afroninja so I can`t complain too much.

If people were constantly harrasing me all the time in real life because of one stupid moment, I`d be pissed too.

YES!

I had to go through all of them until the Numa Numa guy came up.. but he`s there...

Anyway, I don`t see why people have to be so embarrassed about these things let alone be destroyed by it, they did it. No one forced them to and it shows a little humor about them, if they wanted people to leave them alone about it then they could just shrug it off. I mean it`s just a video.

I think the star wars kid is being a bitch about the matter. Theres easier ways to handle, you can pretty much choose to be `depressed` about that subject if you want-its really up to the person.

You know, part of me feels really bad for them, I would feel the same way if I were in their position, the other part wants to watch those videos over and over and then laugh at their silliness.
