View Full Version : Gandhi arguement-There ya go you assholes

04-30-2016, 01:43 PM
Great, I'm kind enough to let myself live through my old stupidity and humor you boobs. This was funny though I have to admit:blush:


This was said in complete seriousness, he went on to say (after i said Gandhi is the most famous Indian man ever) that "of course i don't know...I've never been to India!"

lawl :)

LMAO!!! so funny!

How the hell do you not know who Gandhi is...

Elim is the type of person behind the reasoning for other nations hating America.

Honestly, it's not funny. Really, there should be only thm two laughing at it.
I didn't know what it was until now, and yet i've never seen that word before:p

Dude..elim...I have to say that's pretty bad..
Almost as bad as the girl in my history class who couldn't find Australia on the map, and then she said Africa was so hot because of "The Amazon Desert."

I really don't understand how someone can not know who Gandhi is.

Don't you learn, or at least talk about/hear about him in like 5th grade?

I'm a French-Canadian.

AHAHAHA, you're joking right? Gandhi is from India, and everyone in every country should know who he was...Being French-Canadian means nothing in this discussion.

Well guess what, im history classes we don't learn anything but what happens in Canada. SO i am clueless about other countries except France.

Your teachers are retarded then.
Still should have heard of gandhi though.

Unless you're, uh, nine or something, you should've at least heard of him.

I don't know him because I have never been to india, and plus I have never heard that name before so tachnically he isn't even famous, otherwise I would know him.
Unless I do know him, but didn't know his name.
For I do not watch the news, its boring to my taste, and I don't pay much attention to alot of celebrities/famous peoples names.
And lex, shut up no one wants to hear your retarded comments.

There was a girl in my high school French class that argued for 5 minutes with this girl from Vietnam that Vietnam was next to Canada.

Are you kidding?

Nope, never heard of him, have anyone here heard of michael showdown?
So get off my back and go die please, to anyone who thinks I'm dumb.

He's dead and extremely famous, even outside of India.

That's more of ignorance than idiocy. Actually It's probably a combination

It's not like ghandi is a basketball player on a team you don't like...

You might as well say you've never heard of Jesus..

I'm just sad the public school system failed him so badly

Yeah, but what's elim's excuse? :rolleyes:

Someone say ignorance?
I can't be ignorant just because I never heard of someone before.
And thank you jehutyv, atleast your reasonable.....

Did Michael Showdown liberate an extremely large country from centuries of extremely oppressive rule in the last century through absolute pacificsm? No? Shut up. Don't blame others for your ignorance, except maybe your school system.

That is ignorance, you are completely ignorant on who he is. Different from stupidity.

No. Ignorance is not knowing. Idiocy is comparing him to Michael Showdown, whoever the hell that is.

Actually, that's the definition of ignorance elim..

1. lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
2. lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of ghandi
3. uninformed; unaware.
4. due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.

.....ghandi's dead?

He doesn't know who he is. He didn't even know it was person. I think that qualifies as not knowing.

Huh? HAHA WOW....
You must be retarded if you don't know what ignorance means.....
So no I won't shut up, lol if I don't know someone it doens't mean I'm ignorant or retarded get your facts straight please.
I don't need to blame the schools I go to, just because they don't teach us of everyone in the world.
I blamed no one I'm afraid, I just don't know or never heard of the person, and saying I'm retarded or ignorant just because of that is just like your saying I'm retarded and ignorant because I ain't a lawyer or somthing or don't know everyone.
Please leave your dumb insults out of here. :)

Not suprised with this one actually.

no way he's dead.

Everyone is ignorant about different information. No one can know everything. It's not really that much of an insult saying you were ignorant about him, it's the fact that you ARE ignorant about him that is bad.

Schools these days.... :dry:

But yeah, Ghandi is, like, really famous. Like, really really.
On the Top 10 list of important people.


*EDIT* Ugh red boxes, give me a minute, imageshack is being a...

*EDIT2* Yay got it fixed. Anyway, I also found this: http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0001.html

God you're fucking stupid.

bdog: He's been dead for a while.

Elim: You are just being an idiot. Ghandi arguably did more to India than MLK did to USA. Comparing him to Showrun is just being stupid. You are ignorant, and acting like a dumbass defending yourself like you are right when you know you are wrong. Google Ghandi please, and see how stupid you look comparing him to Showrun..

Among the first 10 people they teach you about, Gandhi should be about #3.

In any case, even without a history teacher telling you, you absolutely should know who Gandhi is.

It's both Ignorance and Idiocy.

No you guys are putting it as I am ignorant just because I have never heard of a single person.
Which is pretty much the same as saying I am ignorant for not knowing many things, like who invented the mattress or fast food....
So technically you shouldn't say I am ignorant for not knowing something, he is a person I don't care, I guess he was really famous and did somthing really good, cool I respect that.
But that doesn't mean I have to know him or ever heard of him, maybe I will in class someday, I just never have yet.
I'm only in 10th grade.
People learn things at diffferent times, your saying like I'm ignorant if I never heard of marten luther king when I was freaken 6 years old.

Yes, that is the definition of ignorance elim.

Like I said he did more than MLK, arguably.

I'm in 9th and I have knwon who he is since 4th grade.

Ignorance is not knowing...so you are ignorant. You might have your words mixed up.


b.) I'm in 10th grade and have known who Gandhi is/was since i was about 7.


I didn't say you were completely ignorant, just on this person. You took it out of context and took it differently.

Sorry about hijacking your thread, but we need to teach elim >.<

In any case, I'd say Gandhi was the MLK of America x 2, rather than GW or Abe.

DO YOU LIVE WHERE I DO? seriously shut up.
and learz thank you, but I just haven't learned about him yet, schools teach different things and also teach things at different times.
So maybe I will learn about him this year I don't know, I just know I'v never heard of him.

Hey dumbass, i live in oklahoma, so we live in the same region, and guess what I learned about Ghandi in elementary school. IF you don't know who he is and you're in highschool, your school system is fucked up, and i suggest you ask your history teach who Ghandi, (pronounced Gone-dee) is, and watch as half your class laughs at you.

04-30-2016, 01:44 PM

This is hilarious.

I really don't see what living in Texas has to do with the price of tea in China.

Honestly, you have the internet, don't you? You can learn anything you want. I am not sure that I've ever learned about Gandhi in school either. But i sure as hell know who he is and what he's done.

Ok then.
What grade did you learn about george washington?


Probably like 1st grade, but it really doesn't matter elim.

Edit: I grinned, Rub.

Good that anwsers the question and teach's ya'll that every school teach's things at different times and such and maybe doesnt teach you about some people.
Because I believe I learned about him in like 2nd grade?
When did you learn who was the 31st president?

Wow...now this is just stupid.


Ask your teacher who Gandhi is plox, and then tell us how many people laugh at you.

That may be too much to count Lex. Maybe a rough estimate would be easier.. :p

Elim, honestly..I don't remeber the exact date of when i learned who George Washington is!

And honestly, it means nothing. You should know who Gandhi is. End of story.

04-30-2016, 02:09 PM

I pity those who are ragging on Elim just because he doesn't know Gandhi....don't you guys have better things to do? o,O

Pathetic. Can we get back to posting funny pictures???

Don't worry, it's adding to the post count :cool:

Only, um, er... 61,000 more posts until we catch the RDT!

Tell me who invented the tv.
He should be super famous........
And whatever I don't care, he's just a person who was famous and did some great things, I'll probably learn about him someday.
Lex, your pretty ignorant anyway, since you think you have to know everybody started in elementary and think that every single school teach's the exact same thing at the same year or somthing.

P.S and ima, YOU should know who my mom is, she's famous in my town.

The problem is elim, not one person specifically created television. It was a gradual thing, created by a multitude of scientific discoveries made by totally different people.

If you ask an Indian person, they'll probably debate that Gandhi was just a person, anyway.

More than one person invented TV, so that question isn't really possible to anwser.

Google his name, Gandhi, educate yourself Elim. Then maybe you will know why so many people are ragging on you for not knowing who he is, and comparing him to people that didn't really do all that much.

And do you know who all of them are?
They should be world wide famous for making a huge thing in world history.
Your ignorant for not knowing all of them.
I don't care bobo, I hate education is annoying, I get it 8 hours a day, I don't want anythin to do with it at home at all really unless its home or a project.
I have no need to look up someone that is that famous, because I will probably learn about him whenever a history teacher brings him up in a lesson.

The difference is, Gandhi did no invent some trivial electronic device, he liberated AN ENTIRE COUNTRY from british rule, without any sort of violence what so ever.

Lex can you read?
I didn't say no difference or asked for that.
I asked a question not what is the difference.


Hey, elim. Go into school tomorrow and tell people you don't know who Ghandi is. Tell your teachers, too.

Well Christ. This just validates what I've heard about Texas.

Honestly Elim, you're talking about two completely different things.

-Abbe Giovanna Caselli - Invented the Pantelgraph
-Scientists May and Smith - Experimented with selenium and light
-George Carey - Put forward drawings for what he called a selenium camera that would allow people to see by electricity
-Scientists and engineers like Paiva, Figuier, and Senlecq were suggesting alternative designs for Telectroscopes
-Inventors Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison theorize about telephone devices that transmit image as well as sound
-George Carey builds a rudimentary system with light-sensitive cells
-Sheldon Bidwell experiments with his Telephotography that was similiar to Bell's Photophone
-Paul Nipkow sends images over wires using a rotating metal disk technology calling it the electric telescope with 18 lines of resolution
-At the World's Fair in Paris, the first International Congress of Electricity was held. That is where Russian Constantin Perskyi made the first known use of the word "television."
And so on.... http://inventors.about.com/od/tstartinventions/a/Television_Time.htm

Amazing what google can do, eh?


Honestly elim, your arguments don't make sense. What Gandhi did saved lives, helped millions, maybe a billion people. Television is simply a convenience, not an incredible accomplishment. And no, I don't know the hundreds of names that helped contribute towards the creation of television.

I didn't ask what google can do.

I'm not comparing anything, I am asking an question.
And you fail to anwser it.

No, you didn't, but, I did anwser your question. Correct?

No, your question simply fails in the relevance department.

The truth of the matter is, you're trying to cover you lack of knowledge about one of the world's greatest men in history by asking questions about inventors of a trivial device that wasn't made by one man.

Ah man..Elim made me laugh. I lost so bad.

Sorry but don't you think you're stretching it a bit much there?

I don't think so, I would definitely put him top 10.

Shit! Wizzy's right! Elim was just submitting it to us to make us laugh!

Not for the Indians.

I'm Indian?

Do I care? No, you are covering the fact that schools across the globe learn about different things same things, both at certain times, different times.
Maybe I did learn about him and just forgot I don't know, I just don't recall nor never heard of the name.
Just like baby's start walking at different ages, I started when I was like 2 or 3, others start at 1 or so.
I just never learned or heard of him, that's all, it doesn't mean I won't ever get a lesson about him.
Did you learn about jesus when you were 3? if not Your ignorant.
Seriously get your facts STRAIGHT AND USE YOUR HEAD.

Look at what he did for the Indians. Now look at the population of India. Gandhi is damned great.

Ghandi is a super hero... Liberated a whole country by himself. :rolleyes:

Actually, i learned about Jesus the minute that my mind could begin to remember things...My dad's a minister.

Aside from that little tidbit, there's really nothing to argue about this post because I've beaten it more times than i care to remember in the past half hour.

BTW, as I already said, one shouldn't have to learn in school about something/someone as great as Gandhi...There are some things that you learn about pretty damn easily without school, and Gandhi's one of 'em.

EDIT: Elim, i would've signed my neg if you were a grey.

Exactly. He's like Captain India.

It's like how this kid in my Japanese class argues with my sixty year old native Japanese teacher about Japanese.


I'm not Indian though...

Right, right. I guess if you're not black, liberating the slaves is no big whoop.

That's not true at all... Ghandi is irrelevant to a lot of people's lives. If school hadn't taught me who he was I wouldn't know about him. And if I were to forget about him tomorrow morning I have a feeling that my life would go on just fine.

Ima, you didn't beat none of my post's really.
You ignored the fact that people learn about things at differnet times, schools teach things at different times.
Plus you wouldn't learn about anyone famous really unless you did from school, a video, looked it up on good(which you can't unless you have heard of him)
Or was told by someone.
I just never heard of him, it doesn't mean I'm ignorant or anything lol, no one ever bothered to tell me about him, or anything, shouldn't blame me and flame me for somthing stupid.

So Texas schools are 5 years behind Maine schools?

Honestly, it's not that hard to find out about Gandhi.

@AFO: maybe you don't care, but there's well over a billion (BILLION) people that can thank Gandhi that they lead even somewhat decent lives.

You still think he's top ten in those people's lives? Not remotely close... but keep thinking that.

Tops Jesus.

Ima, I give up on you you seriously don't get the point.
EVERYONE LEARNS THINGS at different times, just because you learned pre-ap algebra in 8th grade(even though you you probably didn't) and I learn it in 10th grade doesn't mean I'm ignorant.
And before you start, no I'm not comparing him to math, I'm putting up an example.
Learn how to read please.

For them? Sure... But its not like they don't have gods. And those gods top Ghandi. And guess what? So does every person that made their birth possible... because without one they wouldn't be alive. Anyway.. You catch my drift. I could find more people that top Ghandi if ya want. Top ten people in the world!!!!1 is a ridiculous concept.








Why did this thread become so unfunny?

What the hell, yo?

Its because people think Ghandi is a super-hero and should be known by all...

I say bring back the funny. Screw Ghandi.

04-30-2016, 02:26 PM
last part.




Yeah, learning stuff outside of what your taught is stupid. Instead of arguing this whole time defending yourself about not knowing him, you could've looked him up and his accomplishments and you wouldn't have to be defending your point that "I WASN'T TAUGHT SO THERES NO NEED TO LEARN UNTIL I AM."

Hooray bringing funny back to the thread!

Major lolsss

It is a perfectly valid argument. Poorly executed I'll admit, but still valid.

Had to post a llama...

That was almost funny Rubbish. I love llamas though.

Not really. It just depends the scale you're looking at.

And on the whole "valid argument thing," no, no it isn't. Socrates said it - wisdom begins in wonder.

Okay.. what's the scale Ima was looking at?

You're going philosophy on me? I hate philosophy.. The things I've heard about some classes. /barf.

And it is a perfectly reasonable argument. I don't need to know a thing about Ghandi in order to live a good life. History is for noobs.

You guys should take this Gandhi argument to RDT. Stop spamming this thread with BORING crap!

QFT. srsly

Geez. You're like some kind of brick wall.

And Shinok, be quiet. You thought the mario video was boring!

I tried... but I can't help it. My name is Robert and I'm an arguholic.

How am I like a brick wall? You haven't addressed a single thing that I've stated.

Hi Robert!!!

But.. my name is Robert! =O

There can be only one!!!

My dad would kick your dad's ass.

You believe that ignorant bliss is a fulfilling existence. I disagree. We're done.

When did I say anything about ignorant bliss?

If I have my shit together then why should I worry about the liberation of India or some dude that played a key role? I'd rather worry about people that are actually still living on this earth. Build relationships with them and such. Learn how to be successful in this life. Screw the dead dude.

If you think that is ignorant bliss then you do not know the meaning of the phrase. And declaring a conversation over always makes you seem right huh?


Take it to RDT!

Everyone! Start posting dem funnies!

After reading Elim's whole argument, I lost pretty badly. He made quite the fool of himself.

Smelly butt sauce


No dude. We don't care about other countried except America where i go to school to. Like really, i only know about the famous French explorers and not more then their name.

What a shitty school, then. And they call America's education system terrible...

And yet, i don't learn alot about the United States either. THe title of the book we use in history is: Canada and Quebec in a nutshell.

How old are you, out of curiosity? That is, unless you don't feel like sharing.

This one's kind of silly but it made me laugh :p.

All I said was I never heard of him and all of ya'll made a big deal about it lol.
I just never did, thats all.
Maybe I'll end up learning about him this year or maybe I already did, and just don't remember, I just don't recall the name at all.

You're dumb for not knowing who Ghandi is. end of story.

Cool, I might as well be dumb since I never knew how to talk til I was like 4.

I dont think he's dumb for not knowing who it is, i think he's IGNORANT. Which is not as bad a word as he thinks.

He did however make a total and complete ass out of himself trying to defend himself. he's still doing it on arma as we speak..


fixed it.

If you tell me what he did, I'll prolly know who he is.

Elim, I'm going to say this as clearly as I know how, here's all I've got (please read):

You're NOT dumb for not knowing who Ghandi is. It's suprising that you have never in your life heard of Mahatma Ghandi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahatma_Gandhi). This is a world figure. A great man. Arguably one of the greatest leaders ever. You not knowing who he is demonstrates a lack of knowledge on your part of Ghandi. You're in the 10th grade, I'd be willing to bet you've heard of him, and just don't remember. It's like not knowing who Mother Theresa is. Even if you don't know she was an Albanian nun, you've probably heard of her name.

That said, you need to understand the difference between being an idiot, and being ignorant. I am not an idiot (others may debate that), but I am ignorant of many things. Ignorance = a lack of knowledge. If you ask me a question, and I don't know the answer, I am ignorant of that fact. You were ignorant, but not dumb, or stupid, or idiotic. What made you an idiot was how you responded and the complete lack of intelligence your argument demonstrated. Like the whole "of course I don't know, I'm not from India" thing, that you apparently said to I'malive. That's stupidity at its finest, the idea that nothing else in the world should matter to you.

Come on AFO, that, my God, that's just horrible. History is for noobs? Who was it that said those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it? Human beings are so advanced because we share our knowledge among our species. Our knowledge doesn't die with each individual, it is passed on to future generations for their use. It's very, very important to know what's going on in the world and in the past. I hope elim's xenophobia is not really the Texas Christian stereotype playing out, as someone suggested.

And then, instead of looking up who Ghandi was and going "wow, how did I not know this happened?" you stubbornly defended your "right" to be ignorant. Instead of shutting the f*ck up and educating yourself, you told everyone else why you weren't an idiot for not knowing it. You're on a forum filled with well-educated, intelligent people from across the globe. You can't possibly expect not to learn something while you're here.

"There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I think he's just ignorant.

Yeah, today he said he didn't know Mandela either.

Not knowing Nelson Mandela is less of a big deal than not knowing who Ghandi is.

true, but not knowing both is a bigger deal than not knowing one.

I knew it would bother you.

Will you guys give it a rest?

I know the band The Beatles, I don't care who play in the bands, I jsut like the music.
They are good at playing lol, I just don't look in to it and see who all is in it and there names?


This should get everybody's attention.

Who said anything about the beatles here?

That was just on army when i asked if you knew who John Lennon was.

No Soil.
That's just disturbing..


Just stop answering..they'll get bored.

Don't let it get to you. After all it's just history at this point...and history is for noobs.

05-10-2016, 11:40 PM
This is great, really, fucking great.

Wish I was active then, because I learned about Gandhi before 10th grade too. I'm a big history nerd tho.

05-11-2016, 08:37 AM
Honestly though, I think I did learn about Gandhi before this happened or around the time, I simply forgot due to my history teacher not doing a full lesson. I tend to forget alot of names of famous people; so its also a good thought that I just wasen't paying attention. :rolleyes:
I was a slacker and always will be, atleast in school haha
