It's not really any wonder that this kind of moron is a Rick & Morty fan. The show is okay, but wtf is with its fans?

Agreed. Until that moment I didn't even know "troll fans" or whatever existed and I still have no idea what they say online because after I enjoy an episode of Rick and Morty I somehow just carry on living my life.

Isn't that show free to stream online? I get that some people dislike ads but risking a lawsuit over a few ads is idiotic.

Well school is just a waste of time, bunch of people running around bumping into each other, guy up front says "2+2" and people in the back say "4"  Then the bell rings and they give you a carton of milk and a piece of paper that says you can go take a dump or something.  It's not a place for smart people.

Why do people still torrent sh*t when it's available on usenet within 48 hours after broadcast?
Every season of GoT and Ric/Morty is available there right now. All it takes in a good news source and some patience. Where do these people think Kodi boxes pick up their movie feeds?

There are obsessive monomaniacal fans of just about everything.  All those people suck.

They're like the trainspotters and birdwatchers who can't simply enjoy what they're seeing but have to obsessively catalog and critique everything.  They fail at spreading their hobby or fandom to others because they set a ridiculously high bar for newcomers.

I think Rick and Morty is just flavor of the month for those people right now.

Yup ... guess it is. College freshman - you guys really need to step up your VPN use. For the cost of a slice of pizza each month, you can have your very own network to download all the things you want without the nanny P2P sniffers most colleges have added since 2006 ...

Hmm, I'm a bit concerned I might be a bad person now, which would be quite disheartening as I'm pretty cool, and enjoy Rick and Morty as pure escapism at its finest. It's so over the top it's ridiculous. Can you elaborate please?

So since everyone here is obviously too smart and tech savvy to to pirate things the wrong way, I'm assuming someone can tell me why streaming is for fools too? In the past I'd just disable every script and max out Adblock to the point that it was possible to see something that wasn't malicious on a streaming site. Seemed to work fine and never got any trouble from ISP's. I'm a responsible adult these days, but I'm assuming this method is for chumps?

I was one of those people y'all are taking about.  I was in the the pol tab having a talk about how Tool and Rick and Morty fans are similar. I love both of those things but yes, their fans can just...well they just are horrible.

But this will not stop me from watching Rick and Morty or loving the f*ck out of Tool.

So. Here we are.

Also there's a reeeeeeally ugly Rick and a Morty tracksuit that I'm pretty sure I will die without.


Seriously. The fans are obnoxious. Myself included.

Isn't Rick's whole philosophy a giant "Steal This Book" joke?

Why would you punish a student who learns the lesson so well he emulates the Master and becomes a Master in his own right, greater and wiser than his Teacher?

Rick is like all, buy this magazine or I will shoot this dog. Bang!  Told you so.  Yeah, well I don't care if you buy this magazine.  I was going to shoot the dog anyway.  I am smarter than the dog.  I have the right, nay, the duty to shoot the dog.  I am shiatting on your head for the same reason.

If you were as smart as I, Rick, am, then you would not bother with commas. Commas are part of the scam.

Hey, wait a moment! Get out of my head, Rick, or I will imagine Donald Trump and Jabba the Hutt rolling around naked, performing unspeakable sex acts.

OK.

I am not sure I really like Rick. It is a hilarious, witty, and entertaining show. But the morality and philosophic underpinnings seem to be, well, Libertarian bullshiat. I suspect that one of the writers owns a complete set of the works of Ayn Rand.

How does being smarter than other people give Rick the right to be a total amoral dick? Even an essentially meaningless universe does not absolve us of living better lives. After all, it is all we have got. Besides, we are makers of meaning. We exude delusion, but also purpose, meaning and responsibility the way a slime hagfish exudes a bucket of nasty slime when disturbed.

Nihilism is essentially meaningless in its own right. It is so toxic and acidic, it dissolves any meaning, any reality, any truth. Nietzsche said that there were things he did not want to know. Faced with the dissolution of all ethical standards, even of grammar and its own set of delusions and lies, he CHOSE to make myths. He chose to go through the fire and come out the other side, cost what it may. He chose to seek meaning in the form of life-affirming beliefs, knowing full well that they were just as unprovable, unfounded and unsound as any of the belief systems philosophers, theologians, artists and others had made before him.

Meaning exists because we pursue it. Philosophy is the pursuit of wisdom, not the possession of wisdom, for no philosopher, no matter how wise or audacious, really possesses anything.

The blue bird of happiness was in our back yards all along. We pursued it around the world, only to come home and find peace and contentment in the moment, in the place where we are, in ourselves and nothing else.

Cultivate your gardens, says Voltaire's sage. Cultivate your gardens. The Great Sultan may not exist. He certainly does not care about you, any more than he cares about the welfare of the ice in his navy's ships.

Cynicism is like literature. It does not nourish its man. There is no money nor margin in it.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.

Rick's issues are even ancient Sherlock-esque in nature. It's not the first time folks have explored the type. Sir. Doyle, waaaaaay back in the 1880's, created a character that was so bored with reality, that unless he was on a thrilling case, or an adventure, was so doped the fark out of his mind on cocaine and opium, that he wouldn't leave his couch for days at a time, not even for food (I've read the entire collection, Dr. Watson is an OG Morty btw, but a veteran of a farked up war). There is something to be said for creative minds and their equal affinity for being self or outwardly destructive if they are not working on something. Rick just so happens to be so brilliant that he even stays drunk and high while on adventures, because the universe itself bores him. I kinda get it. I've been an on and off weeks-at-a-time drunk for about nine years. If I'm not creatively engaged, I slip into nonstop drinking that can last months as a 'fark you' to being alive at all... and it hurts people, folks close to me especially. It's why I like Rick. But to be bored with the universe itself, well damn dude, what's left than to say 'fark it all' to everything? I'm curious where they go. It's getting more psychological. I don't mind it...
