Guaranteed to make them scream “get out of my head!”
Kids, don’t smoke pot. It makes responsible adults want to mess with your brain, because they all know that you’re stoned right now.
This is a real thing. I’m at a loss for words in mocking how inappropriate it is:

[Should you trust your first impression? - Peter Mende-Siedlecki] (Viewer #154,515)
My title is an exaggeration, but not really.
My first impression of Obama was from his 2004 Democratic Convention speech. Apparently, his delivery was amazing, but I didn’t watch it, I just read it, so I wasn’t distracted by his flourishes.
When I came to this line, I knew Obama was a vile, malicious piece of work:
“it is that fundamental belief — I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sisters’ keeper — that makes this country work.”
No… what makes this country work is the fundamental belief that we are not kept at all.
We are a nation of free men who live under a government of laws whose limited authority exists only by their consent.

By the way, when you’re offered the opportunity to click the link for part 2 (it pops up around the 3 minute mark) – take it.
Oh, and I chose to turn the music off when I watched it. It’s supposed to be hypnotic, but I found it grating after a while. You can choose for yourselves.
Full disclosure: I never once got hired because of my degree. Just my (usually unrelated) work experience and my can-do attitude during the interview, so I may be biased (and perhaps a little bitter about my lost tuition money):

The internet is oddly unhelpful in explaining how these things work. If anyone stumbles across the answer, drop it in the comments:

[Mike Rowe's Best Advice | "Liberty Treehouse"] (Viewer #3,362)
Mike Rowe can ad-lib his way through an interview more cogently and cleverly than any man I know, and still make great points while doing so. I envy his talent.
I wish the guy he was with was similarly skilled. If you get tired of him and just want to get to the “Mike’s talking now” part, skip to 1:13.

I really liked the part where the bullet is long-gone before he gets a chance to blink.
