Actually, that's not how you hold chopsticks. Will someone ever make love to me?

"Actually Guy," a new video from Slacktory, stars Nick Douglas (who is, appropriately enough for a serial corrector, Slacktory's editor) as the embodiment of that netizen we all know and hate: the person who cannot resist the compulsion to correct every minor factual error ever typed by anyone, anywhere.

Except he also can't stop revealing his internal monologue, and it explains a lot. It turns out that endless stream of informational one-upmanship is really an obvious and desperate cry for help (actually, I'm acutely aware of that).
