Don’t Be That Open-Minded

To paraphrase the old saying: It’s good to be open-minded, but don’t be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

QualiaSoup explains this well:

    Required viewing frankly. Thanks!

  • This was beautiful, and well-presented.

  • David D.G.

    Wow, who did the artwork — Steve Ditko? The style looks like that of Marvel Comics, circa 1970. Nice trip down memory lane!

    I had to view the presentation with no sound, so I didn’t get the benefit of any accompanying narration, but it still works extremely well for the most part.

    Wonderfully expressed.

    So when will Qualiasoup be booted from YouTube?

  • Hank Bones

    An excellent video.

    A&E should show that every week instead of Paranormal State. Penn State should be embarassed that those are their students.

  • CatBallou

    You’re right, David. I’m pretty sure that was Ben Grimm’s girlfriend Alicia in one scene!

  • kevin

    one for best. so far on you tube spot on.

  • Oze

    I’ve always said the you shouldn’t open your mind so much that your brain falls out.

    Very good video.

  • «bønez_brigade»

    **wishes he had thought of the particular wording of some of those explanations at several times in the past, whilst attempting to apply cluebat to gullible heads**

  • John Moeller

    I’m going to pass this on to my friends and family who accuse me of sucking the mystery out of life.

  • Coulla

    **agrees with «bønez_brigade»**

    The number of times I haven’t been able to think of a single retort to, “you’re just being close minded,” is getting embarressing.

    My two best friends believe really strongly in tarot (sleep with the damn cards under their pillows) and accuse me of not being open minded if I make any criticisms. I’ve written some of those statements down!

    Cool video and I agree the graphics do remind me of 70’s era Marvel comics

  • Matt

    This video basically summed up the exact crap that I’m putting up with due to a friend. Says the same things in the video too <.<

    So it was such a breath of fresh air to see this.

  • Wow, who did the artwork — Steve Ditko? The style looks like that of Marvel Comics, circa 1970. Nice trip down memory lane!

    Nah, it’s obviously meant to look like Jack Kirby. That kind of heroic, square-jawed faces are Kirby’s trademark. Ditko’s characters are thinner and more weird-looking (in a good way), like Spider-Man and Dr. Strange.

    BTW: great video, indeed. I know a few people who desperately need it (and who will probably never, ever watch it…).
