    Inspirational stuff always makes me mad for some reason. I see it as fake somehow. I think I have problems.

    You don't have problems Jake. Inspirational songs and movies are made by dumb people who think they've done something fantastic. This one's particularly bad since it isn't really about anything... unless it's meant to inspire preteens....

    The music was good but it was too long. I got the point after the twentieth form of the same reworded question

    Also it would have been better if it was trying to get people to read books instead of selling "duir". I don't know what it is because I don't want to go to their site.

    Duir is a transliteration of the Indo-European root dhwer, from which our modern door was derived; hence, Duirwaigh Productions.

    does that mean that there's no such thing as inspiration? i'd disagree.

    I'd say there's practical inspiration and then nonpractical inspiration. This flash would fall into the latter category since it doesn't really accomplish anything. People watch it, say, "that's nice", close it and forget about it. It's inspirational without being inspiring.

    Now someone could talk to you about some cause and get you inspired to help out. That would be practical inspiration since it actually caused you to go out and do something.

    Well, since it's a Cow of War, I'd guess the big red button launches the missles.

    Nah that's not what I meant. I was talking more along the lines of what Cow said. This video just tickles one's fancy a little bit. It doesn't really inspire one to make a difference in their or anyone else's life. In fact, I couldn't get myself to watch the whole thing cause it was just a repitition of the same nonsensical shiat.

    Geez, is it everyone's goal here to try and find fault with everything? I have never met such skeptical, negative people in my life. You guys totally broke that video down into everything it wasnt meant to be. It was just for some simple enjoyment. Good God.
