Not at all unexpected but head bashingly annoying all the same. Here's what the OP wrote:
There are many comments, well, all comments, that follow which are the usual batch of pathological debunking/jokey crap, but this one really got me for its typical and cheap fall back onto classism:My 12 year old nephew wants to be a UFO investigator, he asked me what qualifications he needsI told him
1, you need the ability to believe in something with no supporting evidence2, you need the ability to ignore facts and evidence to the contrary while inventing a reason for doing so3, you need the ability to not be a critical thinker4, you need a tin foil hat5. you need to have zero credibility from your peers
All you need to be a UFO Investigator are:
- A single-wide trailer.
- Electrical service.
- A fridge full of beer.
- An internet connection.
- A five-year old computer.
- A ten-year old CRT monitor.
It's that third one that eliminates him from the profession -- you need to be 21 in most (all?) states. 6th-grade grammar and spelling skills are useful as well, but not necessary.
