I think yes. Why are you not sure?

So you see, to me that spastic guy is not talented at all. Why a billion people watched his video remains a mystery. Over here, we would not even notice someone hopping around like that.

Hopping like that is not the talent. The talent is to realise how to be a succesful businessman, and how to attract the common man's attention, and how to turn the hopping into immense fun.

The next has that talent?

The only talent I had I quit. My real talent is bumpkinism.

That does not really stop you from actually making a video.

Also, there are many uncommon people, so someone would surely enjoy it.

I would say there are more than 10 but less than 20.

So your X does not see your GLX. I am bad with abbreviations...

X is not an abbreviation. It is the X.Org Server. GLX is a graphics module but I cannot FullForm it.
