Time Magazine is famous for its “Person of the Year” award. Apparently people think it’s a prestigious honor, and maybe it is, but there’s something about having Justin Bieber on the same list as Larry Page that just doesn’t seem quite right. One invented Google, a site that has connected the world in unheard of ways, the other is responsible for singing a song called “Baby.”
So this year, Time Magazine has stooped to an even newer level of stupid. Here is Time Magazine’s Person of the Year:
The Protester isn’t a person, it’s a group of people. You can’t have a group of people be “Person of the Year,” it doesn’t make sense. Do you realize what would happen if only one person were protesting something? They’d be ignored or have a blog or something.
And why the hell are we giving awards out to protesters? Occupation Wall Street is nothing but a bunch of lazy jobless dolts who are using protesting as an excuse to not grow up. I know Times is referring to the Egyptian protests, but they didn’t specify, and therein lies the problem with labeling a group of people as one person.
You know who should deserve the award? Angela Zhang. You don’t know who she is because that list is a retarded mess. Angela Zhang is a 17 year old student who created a particle that targets only cancer cells and slices through them until they’re dead. Again, Justin Bieber only sings “Baby” and has millions of dollars, while Zhang made huge advances in treating several cancers and got a grant for college. Thanks, integrity.
