The Nightly Rant Episode 409 Show Notes
Mike opens the show talking about how Torya discovered the secret to a happy life
She said that the secret to a happy life is to be stupid. It’s easier for stupid people. Mike asks how it can be easier for them when they can't see the next thing that will come to them. They can't prepare for it. She points out that you can’t stress about them either. It will happen to you when it happens.
He then asks if she’s presuming that stupid people can't perceive their future. She says no, she says that dumb people don't see the cues to let them know something awful is gonna happen
Torya believes that this episode is her rantiest show ever. Then she changed her rule that oblivious people are truly the happiest.
Then they talked about how the smartest dog is still oblivious. Then they talked about how Bree was consistent about going to the P-A-R-K. Simple life they have. She’s just a happy dog. Even cats have pretty simple thoughts just like Jasper. He disagrees with it, he believes that cats have more complicated thoughts, they are learning. Like a toddler.
Torya points out how oblivious people do not stress over things. Mike then shares that he doesn’t agree with this at all. She observes that highly intelligent people tend to be cynical, salty, and dark. She equates being cynical = unhappiness. The more cynical you are, the more unhappy you are in life. And what Mike's favorite phrase is I think.
Torya says her favorite phrase is “Eat a dick!
Then they talked about salty people. Torya explained how the renters complained that the stove in their AirBNB was broken. And how they were using the wrong cooktop in the induction stove. They were outrageous and said that they were still using the same cooktop since morning, but 15 minutes later said that the stove is now working and no apologies after all
Torya ends the show by saying that nobody will be salty in this story if the person in the wrong is owning their part in the problem. Maybe the oblivious people are the ones making the smart people salty
