Scott Adams (yes, that Scott Adams, the Dilbert creator) has apparently discovered his new calling in life: trolling on the internet. I guess this is what happens when you have too much time and money as well as legions of drooling fans.
No, he doesn’t call it trolling, he calls it “philosotainment”, which as far as I can tell, involves saying stupid things and then laughing at those who dare to correct the idiot child. On Fark, these people are laughed at. But Adams, leveraging his popularity, a waning comic strip, and a host of knuckle-dragging cult followers, has turned this into a full time job.
However, he takes it one step further than you’re average village idiot: I think he really believes what he says. He actually seems to be defending the intellectually-bankrupt Pascal’s Wager while at the same time laughing at those who counter his idiocy. It would seem like normal trolling, except that he implies that he was right all along.
Very, very sad.
