Oh YouTube: You Attract Such Gems

I’ve seen a lot of stupid comments on my YouTube videos, but this one really made my day (here’s the video it was from). I know I talk fast, and that might be challenging for some, but my actual use of the language? Apparently my spoken English is so poor, this fellow from Portland, Oragon, USA, just couldn’t make out what I was saying. πŸ˜‰

  • I’m just impressed with how pissy you got. You used to yell at me for stuff like that!

  • Well, yeah, I had a hard time holding my irritation in check on that one. I can put up with some stuff on YouTube, but someone saying that they can’t understand my spoken English? That’s just crazy! πŸ™‚

    Heh, talk about insular. If he can’t understand your Canadian accent, wait till he hears mine. πŸ˜›

  • I loved your response. I’m at work, having a hard time not laughing out loud over it.

    Number 1 – Everyone has an accent. Check out linguistics. Jason, yours is very close to Mid-west Common (with very few twists that make you distinctly Canadian). Mid-west Common, in North America, is the standard for major network broadcasters.

  • I’d hate to see what he’d think of my southern belle Kentucky accent…lol.

    That’s a good article! πŸ™‚ I personally prefer UnoTelly. It’s similar to Blockless but they offer a DNS server close to physical location and I can achieve better performance.
