i prefer the term "accurate". i didn't see too many PhD's in that clip. in fact, they boast the opposite, and it's absolutely consistent with the entirety of their programming and their target audience - grown men reveling in the intellect of a poorly raised or possibly mentally handicapped child. anyone drawn to "usa versus whoever else might live on this planet" is already operating at the very limit of their capacity.

Velocity is actually pretty decent, they have Wheel Dealers among other things.

So you can tell if someone has a PHD and judge their intelligence based on a few shots over a minute long clip?

i don't even need that much. for example, it's "PhD", "Ph.D", "D.Phill" or "DPhill" but never "PHD" nor "Dr.Phil".

RUUs suck. Use a zip and custom recovery.

How does one tell if someone in a video clip has a PhD?
Wouldn't it be far more accurate, and honest, to state that their behavior conflicts with your agenda, so you've decided to label them as inferior humans so you can feel better about yourself?

I thought the "Euro Trash" reference in the commercial was funny.

i label them as inferior because that's clearly what is celebrated by those marketing this show. i don't have to go past the first 2 "words" in the title: "R U" - tiny words for tiny brains.

we have a pool... and a pond. the pond would be good for you.

So now you need to take a shot at me for disagreeing with you. Why are you so intolerant? What happened that caused this need to feel superior? Are you short or very ugly? Have you not done well in life? Perhaps a girlfriend left you for a fellow that was a bit more "manly"?

As for intelligence, I guess my only answer would be that those fellows have a TV show that most likely makes them a pretty good living. Do you suppose that happened by accident? Do people from Hollywood often go recruiting in the backwoods and swamps? What channel is your show on? Or are you to intelligent to do something as stupid as making a bunch of money on TV?

I don't know which you were going for, but the abbreviations for both "Phillip" and "Philosophy" are spelled with a single "L".

that wasn't a shot at you, unless you look like bill murray:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKmejXZJN2M

and tv producers certainly do recruit in the backwoods and swamps. a 1000 of these shows, plus all the "moonshiners" "gold diggers" and all the others, cost less than 1 episode of a major production like law and order, for example. fox has always given speed the slimmest of budgets and i bet 90% of it went towards nascar.

for the record, no i haven't made a bunch of money being on tv. i've made a bunch of money bringing tv to the masses.

You'd be very surprised to see what those "good ol' boys" can do with leaf springs and solid axles. I grew up with it and occasionally I'm still impressed.
