Gangnam style was a fad that started from a music video

No really, it was just another stupid fad that seemingly everyone has already forgotten

Sucks for them; I'm guessing that they were all comfortable enough in the mine to disregard safety procedures without really thinking about it, but posting it on the internet wasn't a smart move.

And regardless of how stupid it is, doing a Harlem Shake video is ridiculously fun and if you hate fun then you're just as dumb as the Harlem Shake :C


It made more sense in my head.

Do you even have friends? It is fun actually, just as long as the video never finds its way to the internet.

Yes.

i'm all for improving moral in the work place, but i don't think a mine shaft is a great place to be shaking your body violently.

He's implying that because he likes it, everyone has to like it and if you don't you hate fun

When he's making those hard ass implications, I can say whatever the hell I want about his preferences

Yes.

Point in case

I have a wide field of friends, most of them being pretty hardcore rave goers. I myself love raves. And even so, I can still say that it's just another dumbass fad that I swear to god will disappear into thin air within a few months

Gangnam style was just as bad. I don't even feel bad about this - they should have known better.

So just tell him you don't find it fun. You're fighting against the 'you hate fun' point (which is stupid because that's down to personal preference) instead of the 'this is fun' part, which is what you're actually disagreeing with.

It wasn't the dancing or the bandwagon-riding that got them fired, it was the removal of safety gear.

I assumed people liked to joke around with their friends. I've made worse assumptions. Maybe I should just go around calling people stupid for doing something that doesn't appeal to me.

I'm not calling people stupid for doing something that doesn't appeal to me

I'm calling people stupid for falling into yet another fad that's gonna be long gone in a few months

Please, go right ahead and tell me what the big trend was before gangnam style, or the fad before that

There are two points being argued as if they're the same here:

The harlem shake isn't fun (according to some people)
and
Any fun at all isn't fun (or, Xenomit doesn't like fun)

They're linked because of a clever little jump made by Tremulos which said that "doing the harlem shake is fun, and if you don't like fun you're stupid"
This whole argument is piggybacking on the assumption that Xenomit doesn't like fun because he doesn't like the harlem shake. The point is that the harlem shake cannot be ultimately defined as either fun or not fun because that is down to personal preference. I don't know if Xenomit likes fun or not, he's too busy defending himself arguing to say anything useful.

I'm assuming he does like things that are fun and that the harlem shake isn't one of those things, although having said that I'd also wager that he's never even tried it and has some sort of superiority complex over people who don't care about looking stupid.

Also, yurgenburgen hit the nail on the head with the thing about the safety gear. If something had gone wrong and someone had died while harlem shaking there would be a different tune being sung.

I don't think they fell into it because it was a fad, but because it was seen as more of a fun social event to partake in with friends. With a chance of getting many views. ;)
