This has big "I am very smart" energy. Intelligence is knowing every 24 hours is a new day. Wisdom is knowing the phrase "new day" is used rhetorically and figuratively.

I love these kind of jokes. Aggressive technically accurate call outs for no reason. Like that song from Lonely Island, where the girlfriend hands him a phone and he goes "that ain't my dad that's a cellphone! And I threw it on the ground!"

It's ridiculous and I love it.

"I'm an ADULT!"

[-] impudentmortal@lemmy.world 2 points 3 months ago

Generally love that type of humor too but it's less funny if the person making the joke insults the other person. Because then it makes it seem like the joker does not get that there's two meanings in the phrase, like how the original commenter noted. It makes the joker seem condescending and oblivious.

Saying these types of jokes with a straight face would be much funnier than if the joker was mean spirited. Leslie Nielsen was a master at this.

Or is it, "you're saying empty platitudes," energy? I think the latter.

[-] assassin_aragorn@lemmy.world 13 points 4 months ago

I think it would be more meaningful if he actually said that. Right now it's just... I'm not sure what his point is. Being a pedantic asshole?

[-] RememberTheApollo_@lemmy.world 6 points 4 months ago

Agreed. Just being aggressive over something inane and pointing out something obvious to be contrary isn’t helpful. It just means he’s an ass.

Clearly, my dear learned friend, you are an undeniable polymath - for not only do you possess the knowledge of a single day's duration, but also the power to discern its nuanced usage in everyday speech. Your intellect soars beyond the stratosphere where mere mortals can barely comprehend the concept of time. However, your thirst for wisdom should compel you to explore further: once you understand the intricacies of "new day", you may delve into the complexities of time itself. Did you know a standard clock hour differs from a solar hour? Or how about sidereal time, which deviates even more? You see, only the truest of geniuses understand that what we call a day isn't fixed or universal; it varies based on one's perspective. Keep seeking, my wise friend, because there's always more to discover.

This has big “I am very smart” energy.

That nicely sums up everything anyone needs to know about Vaush.

I would also add predatory male feminist, hypocrite, shitlib, pedo.

There really is just no redeeming quality to the guy.

[-] CileTheSane@lemmy.ca 4 points 3 months ago

Technically speaking a new day happens in America 3 times every 24 hours. Eastern time, Central time, and Pacific time.

[-] meant2live218@lemmy.world 7 points 3 months ago

To be more specific, there are 4 time zones in the contiguous 48 states: Pacific, Mountain, Central, and Eastern. Alaska is also one hour behind Pacific, and Hawaii (usually) one hour behind Alaskan. But Hawaii also doesn't observe daylight savings time.

This also doesn't account for how some states (like Arizona) don't observe DST while Navajo Nation (in Arizona) does, while Hopi land (surrounded by Navajo) doesn't.

Time is confusing.

And don't forget all those overseas territories, too.
