American educational system at work. I bet she's a college graduate too.

A comma would have been a better choice here, genius.

If your car is going 80mph, how long does it take to travel 80 miles?

Holy cow, Is she a total moron? I'm sure he isn't dating her for brain.

Well it's like, 30 minutes, cause you just cut it in half cause I can run about 1 mile every 9 minutes and my car's wheels turn 400 times per mile which is not as good as a cop car's because their tires are less flat than mine are.

Where, genius? Joining the two independent clauses, or what are more commonly known as sentences? If that's what you're trying to point out, you're completely wrong. You don't join independent clauses with a comma. You either put a period between them, as Zebo did correctly, or join with a semi-colon if the two independent clauses are related.

In this case, Zebo is correct with what he wrote.

Now, if you'd written Zebo needed a comma between graduate and too, you'd have been correct in that, but not joining his two sentences.

You fail, Silly......

That's quite a long rant only to accomplish nothing.

My wife and daughter do this stuff from time to time. I think it's not that they're stupid, it's that they're over-thinking the problem and assuming the answer will be complicated. I have people at work like this too:

Me: We need to make sure we have the updated Terms and Conditions for our service is available to our customers.
Assistant: Well, I'll have the development team make a new pop-up box that shows the new Terms on any of our sites, maybe make a cookie so it only shows once per visit. Then I'l have Marketing print us 1000's of mailers to send out to everyone. We could make a database of everyone that's been made aware of the changes and then have the call center call all of the people that haven't been notified...
Me: ...or we could just put a link on our website.

Nope. Just justification for not propagating.

I think it's fake. If it's not fake, then I feel very sorry for that poor bastard who married her.

That's what I was thinking based on the intro the guy gave while he was sitting right next to her.

Plus the link to the guy's channel page in the annotation that displayed throughout the video, and the very high number of views... yeah this is just some idiot shamelessly promoting himself.

My wife somewhere along the line cannot ascertain directions from inside our house. She is constantly pointing like 90 degrees off when saying things like I was on Main Street and I'm saying that's all well and good, but Main Street is that way. After me bringing out google maps and their satellite photos and showing her that the sun doesn't set in the South here in Belleville, MI she said that the google maps were just a big conspiracy.

i find it hard to believe that someone does not know that 60MPH=60 miles in a hour.

I don't see that marriage lasting. Ok making fun of her is 1 thing but to post it on youtube?

If it's real who would want the marriage to last. That level of stupidity would drive me insane.

I used to work with a guy who asked his wife who fought the civil war. She didn't know

Why would he even care? When you're a hot chick you don't have to be good at math, life, etc..

For all who say it's a turn off, if this was your gf or wife then you best believe there's a few guys in waiting for her if you don't want her. Don't get me wrong, I need an intelligent woman too, but sometimes you just gotta go with the stupid hotties, because they're freaks in bed.

Thank god I'm not the only one who does that. (Severely overthinking things. Constantly.)
