How many times and in how many ways do we need to be told that we’re wasting our lives? At least one more, I guess.

If you’ve never thought of your life in terms of jellybeans, well, you’re not alone. But some cynical, kinda bored-sounding dude went through the trouble of gathering 28,835 of Ronald Reagan’s favorite little colorful candy morsels in order to make some sort of point about life being short and valuable and blah, blah, blah. You know the drill. Carpe diem and all that.

I don’t mean to be too hard on the guy. It’s a positive message he’s delivering and the presentation is reasonably clever. I’m just sick and tired of all these YouTube videos being all preachy and judgmental and shit about what I’m doing with my time. So what if I want to spend an entire jellybean getting high and playing video games every once in a while?  I work hard. I deserve it. Besides, they’re my jellybeans. I can do whatever the fuck I want to do with them and if you don’t like it, you can kiss my ass.

And by the way, how many jellybeans do you think this guy wasted putting this video together? Makes you think, huh?
