That blows my mind.

I'd like to think that wasn't planned since it's goddamn hilarious.

This guy is my new hero.

I think a lot of the twelve year olds on Xbox LIVE probably make a compelling argument that FPS games aren't necessarily for smart people but I love this guy and his voice, and that's coming from someone who has an English accent.

I think they kind of misunderstand the question.  It's not about whether a tree makes a sound or not, I thought it was more of a philosophical question asking if something can have meaning even if no one will ever experience it.  It's not supposed to be literal, right?

What a complete dweeb.

I never encounter anyone with more intelligence than that of a 12 year old so this is a true breath of fresh air.

Actually the reason that the answer surprises everyone, is because FPS games are mainly populated by stupid people. That's why this video is cool, because your not expecting such an educated response in that context.

I wish I had that accent.

Posted by Romination

That's the answer I give! 
Now to develop an accent aside from American and get on the internet.

It's because he is playing on a PC.

And THIS is why I play games on the PC.

I'm in the UK and just happen to look and sound like a bag of shit, but me saying it doesn't make it any less correct. The reason he sounds smart is because it was probably the smartest thing said on TF2 since "Hey Dude where'd you get that sweet hat".

he answered the shit out of that question

Oh come now; he gave the stereotypical "yo fuck you, that question ain't hard" answer to the question. Just because someone has a proclivity for using long words doesn't make them intelligent. 
 
Either way, ignore me. I'm in a bad mood and apparently my sense of humour died along with my spacial awareness. I really should be asleep, but this pounding headache isn't letting me.

I agree he didn't have to. But sometimes when your teams loosing you have to smack a bitch with knowledge.

@Quacktastic: The question becomes even more philosophical when taken literally. It's not about meaning, or value of things. It is this literal metaphysical question, do things exist outside the context of experience? Literal existence, not some abstract contemplation on it. Quantum physics have already shown us that in the realm of causality things do not exist outside of perception, in fact it is perception that shapes them into being. There is no such thing as separate objects or independence on space-time or observation, there are only constantly shifting definitions of certain aspects of the manifold of being. 
 
The fact is 90% of people still think in a Newtonian manner, and while his physics still apply in the realm of practicality the actual consensus on reality he presents has been disproved again and again over centuries. If anyone is interested, I can recommend some books.
 
 
BTW, don't mean to be elitist or anything, this stuff just fascinates me.
