How many words for snow?
Here is one that isn’t going to shock you much. People are stupid. Really, really fucking stupid.
I had the first meeting of my philosophy discussion group in over a month last night. No one has gotten any smarter since last time around. The newest member of the group made reference to the fact that Eskimos have 20, or 30, or 100, words for “snow”. This stupid myth has floated around for my lifetime and is one more example of why most of you should be killed. Even a simple Google search will debunk this bullshit.
1. There is no one “Eskimo language” or “Eskimo culture”. This is similar to the concept of “Native American Culture” which also rose it’s stupid head at a meeting of Deep Thought Philosophy. “Native American Culture” my ass. Are you people really so stupid (answer, yes you are) that you believe that the “Native Americans” who lived at the north-eastern corner of North America and the “Native Americans” who lived at the southernmost tip of South America has the same culture? The same language? The same spiritual beliefs? Played the same games? Painted the same designs on their pottery? There is no “Native American Culture” any more than there is a European culture, Asian culture, African culture, or even homosexual culture for that matter.
Stupid people are unable to understand that people are different. In fact, the stupid people don’t actually believe that other people exist. I’ll get into this in the future. Stupid people want to believe that everyone is the same because it makes the world simple and thus easy to understand.
Back to snow. If you add up the words for snow from all the different Eskimo-Aleut languages you might end up with 20, or 30, or 100 words for snow. But no one culture is using all of those words. If you add up all the words for snow from all the European languages we might well have 20 words for snow as well.
2. What do you mean by “words for snow”? Some of the “words for snow” I’m suppose to be impressed by are translated as “snow on the ground” or “snow floating on water”. Those aren’t different words for snow, those are words for snow in different conditions.
Take a look at:
This myth is a clear and obvious example of the complete lack of critical thinking found in the general population. That’s the general population which we alow to vote and participate in the political process.
Some other references which you should have been able to find on your own:
Is it really too hard for you people to stop being stupid? Yes, it is actually.
