Default Modern society sucks

Modern society sucks specially when crap like this is made into a cult Icon:

If the four horsemen arrive now I would just walk up to them and say:

"YOU'RE LATE!!!"

Classy yeh. Thankyou shameless commercialism and channel 10 for being the responsible network they are.

I look forward to more videos on you tube of this guy being beaten up in parks!

My first thought when I read this was "Big Brother?", and I see I was not far off at all.

It's sad that someone can get fame and fortune from doing something stupid, and not taking any responsibility for it. I'd feel completely different about Corey Worthington if he had the guts to hang around and cop his punishment on the chin after his "party".

I'd feel completely different about Corey Worthington if he was a girl with fake boobs and only went on Big Brother to further her modelling career!
Otherwise he's just scum

Strangely enough, I think he might actually have more brains than Bridgette.

Don't get me wrong, I detest the guy and what he's done and his lack of responsibility. But i've followed him in the house and he does have moments where he actually is a decent human being. Helping out with the cooking, showing concern when his fellow HM's are upset. Of course those moments are minor and the majority of the time he's a disrespectful little beep beep beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

Why do a lot of people (and not just teenagers, 20-somethings as well) look up to the guy and respect him? Because he knows how to have a good time and doesn't care what happens to have that good time.

It's a typical case of "being a rebel". They've been worshipped for generations, the only difference now is it's so much easier for him to gain exposure.

Sure, "responsible" media outlets could deny him that exposure, but they'd also be denying themselves profit.

You know what though? He's not worth getting upset over, he's not worth getting pissed off at. Just sit back and take comfort in the knowledge that you, as a person, have probably done more good in a week than he'll do in a year.

And take comfort in the fact that while he may make all this money, you just know that by the time he's 30 he'll be a washed up has been pumping his weekly labourer allowance into the poker machines at his local pub where no one will remember him or the crap he pulled.

I wish I had the above mind set but I don't. Its also not like the old fashion 'Rebel' of old who went against the doctrines of society in his life style. People these days worship morally bankrup people who benefit at the expense of others. People these days are worshiped for gaining 'fame', it doesn't matter how its achieved as long as they appear constantly in the media.

Basically Infamy has been confused with fame and it doesn't matter how you obtained this 'fame' as long as you get it. We live in a morally bankrupt society.

The other thing is that this guy is probably going to come out of this with more than enough money for him to buy his own home if he wishes to do so. I know that he would likely waste it all on garbage beforehand but the point is that he will be earning the amount that someone spends 20-30+ years in honest and hard work in just a few months for acting like moron at the expense of others or by doing something which he clearly knows is morally wrong not to proof a point but to get attention.

I personally don't blame Correy at all, I blame society as this guy would be nothing without its praise and approval and the media would not be giving him so much exposure because there would be no profit in it.

I don't have enough words to express my utter and absolute disdain for the brat. There are more people worthy of fame and regard than this snotty, self-obssessed, conniving, self-serving runt.

Just the other day, I was somewhat surprised and impressed to find an article about one of the house mates who had been evicted had found himself to be more tolerable. That I felt was good positive to take away from the show. It's the type of message that i'd like to see come from these things which for the most part are an exercise is social decay.

However, not long later we have this pathetic excuse for a human being being glorified. The sad part of it for me is how many kids out there are actually devouring this lack of substance.

I fall into that age bracket, and I tell you, not one of my friends (and by friends I really mean associates, so co-workers, uni compadres, friends, neighbours etc.) in my age group finds Corey interesting or worthy of emulating. We love a good time but not at the expense of others, well, at least not as many as him :|

Jay is totally right though.
