Age wise I dunno if it holds up. the episodes are available on YouTube as at this point it's pretty much nearly lost media: https://youtu.be/nRTlgcCmu3U

It's an acted out gameshow where people have to solve a murder. The premise is quite interesting, near the end of the episodes they have an elimination where they send 2 people to a place and the murder searches from them. Only 1 person makes it back.

I thought I'd share this. I remember seeing this on the BBC when I was a kid


It goes without saying, One thing that annoys me is whenever a topic comes up about someone finding something mildly infuriating and there is always that 1 person who has to decide it isn't because of x, y and z reasons

Like I guarantee, if I were to do the same it'd be on every post with tiles that were out of order, upside down because it's one of the few things I look at and shrug because it's whatever... but I'm not about to do that. People are allowed to be infuriated by things that don't necessarily infuriate you.

Any kind of Gatekeeping in general.... very infuriating.

Anyway see this post as an open invitation to vent. Comment below. What infuriates you? and what thing that typically infuriates others, doesn't infuriate you.

So they should, child labour laws should apply to these kids just as any other business. The money earned from these videos need to be paid to the child. Even if it's in a trust fund where the kid can take it out when they're old enough and can make better decisions. Like child tv stars they need to only have to work a set amount of hours, no longer.

When I say this I'm talking about toy channels, I'm not talking about the mumfluencer channels. This kind of constant forceful filming of their childrens every moment should be stopped, kids need to have privacy, it's known to be detrimental to their mental health when they're constantly documented, and they are also far more likely to get bullied because of it.

I can't begin to imagine all my bad childhood memories being immortalised thanks to a pushy parent who saw me as a money machines more than a person.


I grew up on this man's epic fail toy reviews and I am scared it has been 13 years since they were last uploaded. I was 15.

Wholesome ending - they got vaccinated so the mother fell out and doesn't see them as her kids anymore and the kids moved out with their much cooler and less antivax father and lived happily ever after.

So much of that in England. I get people don't want to block the road, but when you are sitting on the entire footpath so nobody can get passed. You're an asshole.

I was so cross when a van didn't bother to park just a few metres away in a designated parking spot to go to the corner shop and just decided to sit and block the entire pavement at a point to close to a hedge that meant we were forced to go out into the road.

Laziness. Just laziness.

These people care more about an unborn baby than they do about the baby after it's born. Actually sad.

If every one of these anti-abortion assholes want to start taking the babies of families who cannot raise them then it wouldn't be seen as just a disgustingly hypocritical movement. That is not the case. If you want to start forcing women to have babies they can't care for but you don't want to take care of the consequences of that, you are the problem.

Nobodies out here delivering fully sized aborted babies for shits and giggles. Pregnancies are painful and traumatic enough.

Company: You need to have everything ready before the start of your shift.

Me: Do I get paid for coming in early?

Company: No

Me: Okay, if I'm starting before my shift time then I am going home early to make up for the lost time.

Company: If you leave 1 minute early we have to deduct an hour from your wages

Me: leaves

Company: nobody wants to work anymore.

Companies have normalised wage theft but call it what it is. It's theft.


Mine is a pretty tame example: I never minded the smell of garlic was fine around it... but I took a job for DHL and they had these large tubs of garlic for horses that had to go out to people. There were about 10 of them coming down the belt.

Now I can't stand it. I'm just reminded of how strong that smell was I was actually gagging. The tubs were heavy, the handles were feedble. Some of the tubs were damaged so I got a bit on me.

I stunk of it for the rest of the shift. It wasn't even a normal garlic smell it was just so powerful and nauseating.


It's now 2023, and I fully embrace my identity! To those who are still finding themselves, no matter how young/old you are; people are more complex than words can define; asexuality is a spectrum so even if you don't find a label. That doesn't matter.

Even if the answer isn't with you right now, you may find the answer come to you later. You know your sexuality better than anybody else.

You are worthy of love! Much appreciation for all aces.

That annoys me, they lost because "might be AI" are you kidding me? The photo does not look AI to me at all. If the photo was edited through photoshop or went through an art program couldn't they have just asked for the original? That must've been infuriating.

Not even just that... Alienates all potential leftwing/brand friendly advertiser's through changes and being the spokesperson for the platform.

"We're down 50% how could this have happened?????" - Elon Musk

Dude needs to stfu, make an alt account. He has chosen to be the spokesperson for the platform. Spouting off conspiracies and controversial takes. You can't be surprised nobody wants to associate with him.

He is a liability and a brand risk. Sure he can have his opinions but here is the problem...

He has chosen to be extremely public and force those opinions onto the average consumer feed due to his narcissistic tendencies and it is biting him in the ass.

No sympathy. He wanted free speech, (albeit it isn't because he is okay as long as it doesn't criticise him or his affiliates.) now he has his free speech platform but in the same way advertisers can chose not to engage with it.

It's the best and worst thing to happen to the internet.

Best because - Twitter is a toxic site, with toxic people and a system that encourages ragebaiting means it breeds it.

Worst because - These negative people need somewhere to go... And it will only force them onto alternatives and fester in new places. Potentially here.

I think it's a lot more because the internet was a niche. It's something your parents/family or weird creepy uncle wasn't on. All these old memes still feel "untouched" by facebook and it feels like an in-joke. In other words memes felt more special.

4chan was onto something, once memes became mainstream they died... a little hyperbolic but they do lose their fun factor being more popular now.

It's fucking annoying, admittedly edge is good on its own merits, but you know what pushes me to not want to ever use your product? Anti-consumer practices.

I have been very happy in using FF for my main browsing. It has adblock, NoScript and SponsorBlock. Since I use NoScript I jump on Edge when I want to use a trusted website for payments but I really want to use it less when it does this shit.

I can't wait for the excuse "OoOooh wooooops, that's a bug! Sowwy EU we did not mean to do anti consumer pwactices" as a way to dodge blame
