Show: Nathan For You

I was in between books recently; had a little trouble sinking my teeth into what I was reading so I would stream a little from Amazon Prime before bed.

I hardly ever just pick some random show and start watching. I’m so glad I did this time. I have never heard if Nathan for You and the thumbnail for the show was nothing to get excited about; a very white white dude dressed in a business suit.

This stuffy Nathan Fielder guy goes around to struggling business’, gets the proprietors to trust him and then he then makes outlandish suggestions on how to help them get more customers and make more revenue. I still can’t believe what some of these people fall for and more then that I can’t believe I’d never heard of this show before.

Best of Craigslist

By far one of the funniest things I’ve found in the last few years.
It’s the funniest stuff from Craigslist and it’s pretty constantly updated from people “flagging” ads for it.

Here’s a couple of my favorites –

How to Suck at Your Religion

I’m a big fan of the Oatmeal, a smart online comic-strip written and maintained by Matt Inman. Comedy often has the power to get a point across that the experts, politicians and the media don’t. Think Jon Stewart and the Daily show, George Carlin, Bill Hicks… Though they speak in jest they make some serious arguments about serious subjects all the while making you laugh.

The Oatmeal is a master of this and “How to Suck at Your Religion” is more then just an easy jab at religious people (of all different religions) and what they believe. It’s a pretty great summary for why so many of us don’t believe and beyond that get frustrated with the actions and stances those who do. Kids are easy targets. If you tell them something they will believe it; they haven’t developed the necessary skills to actively sort the the info they are given . Scientific fact. Indoctrination isn’t fair and is sort of evil in my opinion. I’m glad he hit on that, nailed it.headerFor more of The Oatmeal, and there is lots more, go here – http://theoatmeal.com
