May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media

A term used by people who get all of their "news" and "information" from youtube, to describe any source offering facts that don't comport with the nonsense they've been consuming. More hardcore idiots will use the acronym MSM because they reference the mainstream media so much.
I went to buy some light bulbs and the cashier started telling me about how the mainstream media is covering up UFOs. When I told him I didn't have time to talk, he told me I had been "blue pilled."

A common form of worldwide brainwashing which influences weak-willed people across the globe and is committed to spreading propoganda and fake news. Whether they’re left-wing or right-wing, the rats in charge of these organizations are cowards who simply yearn to watch the world burn in order to make a quick buck.

Never trust them.
CNN: “I’M OFFENDED, HOW DARE YOU SPEAK YOUR OPINION.”

FOX NEWS: “IT’S NOT MAKING ME ENOUGH MONEY, SO IT HAS TO GO.”

Sane Individual: “Take all mainstream media gossip with a grain of salt and think for yourself. Always speak your mind (in an appropriate setting), and make a living doing what you love, —but remain humble and don’t be greedy.”
