I know "literally just reading Reddit posts" has always been a popular format for clickbait, but now on YouTube they're not even disguising it.  This upsets me a little.
Its because youtube now gives everyone the same suggestions, or at least it puts you into a demographic category and pushes the same videos to everyone in that category.  I remember when the suggestions you saw were based on the video you were currently watching so you can spam watch a lot of videos of the same type.  I liked it, it was like a sort of freeform TV where you could pick what the next episode was.

I'm pretty sure youtube is showing me content specifically designed to piss me off.  "how [insert movie/tv show/video game] [went wrong/is SJW trash/is so much better than this other thing everyone hates right now]."  Like... really?  I don't go out of my way to watch things I dislike and its annoying that youtube seems determined to direct me towards things it thinks I *dislike*.  If you ask my youtube is going the way of facebook.

Youtube's recommendations have kinda gone off the rails for me lately, too, come to think of it. They used to be on-point.
Although I don't use it as much since its ghastly ads are apparently unavoidable on mobile.

Definitely seems to be a lot of politically charged stuff getting recommended; mostly I've been getting bombarded with videos where Ben Shapiro/Jordan Peterson WTFPWNBBQ some nub libs.

Y'know what I would watch? One of those, but it's been edited like one of those parody MLG 360 noscope compilations, with (deal with it) Thug Life and superfluous airhorns.


So yeah; mostly those, and then that one Rust video. Which actually isn't as bad as one would expect.

I get those, too. Also a whole heap of depressingly anticlimactic videos of brawls between protesters in the States. Wait, why does the word anticlimactic have an extra "c" in it? WTF? I hate that word now.    
I've probably cooked my recommendations even more after the bizarre sequence of videos I watched last night, haha.

I wouldn't be too suprised if Google's doing some kind of A/B testing, where A is just the good old recommendation system, B being the garbage "new" system.

What, do you pronounce it "anticlimatic"? It's just the same as "climactic", with an anti- stuck to the front. And I'm fairly sure that "climactic" has always had three c sounds in it.

This is all because of anthropogenic climax change.

I'm feeling unproductive.  I know my value in life does not derive from my accomplishments, but lately I feel like I have just been existing at best, mostly just working hard to maintain the status quo because things keep breaking or wearing out.

I've realised that since I left bay12 I have become the right-wingers. Now my desire to pwn the libs is overcoming me, and soon you will all be slain. Truly a twisted world in which we live.


What makes me really sad is people getting angry at each other over politics. We're all people.
