Hoo boy you can really count on Meatspace Nothings to use Online Honch, Posting-Wise status to convey their fakeness.
Look at Jeff Brines here.
This guy is a Meatspace Nothing, but he wants really badly to be an Online Expert, so he's blah-blah-blah-ing the fuck out of Bridal Emm Tee Bee discussions.
I'm very sure I could beat Jeff Brines in a DH race on a bike, and in a GS course on alpine ski gear, and I'm at least 20 years older than he is.
Clearly, however, I'm not an Online Expert. So Jeff "wins" online because I don't pontificate at Bridal Emm Tee Bee with illogical pseudo-rationalizations stuffed to the schnozzola with cliche and "popular wisdom" which, in truth, is very unwise.
In this way, Jeff Brines is much like Jeff Popovich.
Jeff Brines doesn't know ski gear or skiing. What he knows is The Lingo, which was created by other Online Expert, Meatspace Nothings for the purpose of purveying Online Expertise to conceal their Meatspace Nothingness.
When Jeff Brines was practicing his Baruch atahs for his bar mitzvah, I was sharpening skis, mounting bindings, fitting boots, and running gates.
Jeff Brines didn't ski though the entire revolution of gear in the 1970s, which predated the "revolution" of the 2000s.
Jeff Brines was too busy being Jewish.
He arrived in athletics late, put 350% effort into it, and still remains a Meatspace Nothing.
Being a Jew, Brines finds it necessary to regurgitate the "accepted wisdom" (read: Online Expertise shown by Meatspace Nothings) on the ski "revolution" of the 2000s.
The 00s "revolution" has "progressed" skiing, clearly.
Brines says so, and he's a wise Jew, even if Meatspace Nothing!
Treyf little faygeleh, he is.
