Yup. The Miss Vermont in plaid should have been a tip-off, if nothing else.

Nope, I think people who believe this video to be real are, in reality, succumbing to their own prejudices. I mean, do they think that Miss USA contestants are that dumb? I mean beauty pageants aren't exactly my cup of tea either, but the makers of this little video were just a bit too smug for me to think it very funny.

Folk might want to believe they are that dumb...in lieu of being super pretty. But, these gals aren't super pretty/fit either. So, what's left? Some bizarre peripheral resentment between the haves and the have-nots where they don't actually exist in this case. Yep, very strange.

You're right, I agree that it's a fake.

I thought it might be a spoof, but
I guess this is why I thought it might possibly be true.

It's a spoof based on the *should evolution be taught in schools question*

BUT, you WILL use the brain you grew learning it. Sometimes, the goal isn't knowing the material when you are done. Sometimes, the goal is how you grew as you went through the journey of learning what you learned.

I don't use 95% of the math I learned but I use the brain I grew learning it every day and I would not have grown this brain without it.
