      To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily fromNarodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick and Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existencial catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them.

    I've read article that argue that whales and dolphins are smarter than human. It's fascinating read. Whether it ultimately correct or not, it offered perspective. This video offered none.

      +bayu djeruknipis I guess that means YOU didn't catch the point of the video itself... Because it was very clearly a joke (as is all of his videos) with some facts sprinkled in.

    • bayu djeruknipis
      bayu djeruknipis 3 months ago

      +Paavo you certainly did not catch my point, and I afraid I misinterpret yours with following comment, but here we go.
      You (and video maker) basically cannot accept that other animal can be smarter than human; reducing their smarts as one type of intelligence that we might be lack of. No, what being proposed by my reference is that whales and dolphins ARE more intelligent. The writer was open minded enough to question that we might possibly do not have tool to measure intelligence objectively. That measuring smarts by tool usages, building things, and so on might limiting our understanding on the subject. The argument that article brought rouse my curiosity. Compared to that, this video is shallow. Video maker basically repeat what teachers taught, no curiosity, no compelling argument that tempered through academic rigor.
