    Did it go full "complex motives"?
  2. Here's a challenge:

     

    Start a browser in private browsing, for a fresh history.

    Go to youtube without logging in.

    Repeatedly watch whatever video you want, then return to the front page, making note of the recommeneded videos.

    Your score is the number of videos required before Family Guy stops being recommended.

    Lower scores are better.

     

    Hard Mode: Get rid of late night talk shows, movie trailers, and sports shows too.

     

    Impossible Mode: Get rid of bullshit clickbait list videos.

      After 50 videos I'm throwing in the towel. Final thing: wDVsVzG.jpg

       

      If there is hope for impossible it is finding some 3rd world country and going hard on it because literally every other topic will give you a bullshit list. And Family Guy will still be there half the time anyway.

      Just to be fair I tried this myself, with the impossible challenge.  It's technically possible because the browser I use with months of history doesn't get any of those videos.  But I gave up on a fresh history after 160 videos.

       

      The interesting thing about it is that it feels like youtube is actively taunting you.  You'll get an almost perfect slate of recommendations, with one offending video (often the family guy asian drycleaner video, or the brian forced mating one).  Then you watch another video, come back to the main page, and nearly every single recommendation is stuff you'd get on a fresh browser, with nothing whatsoever related to what you've been watching.

      Yeah my usual account will pass it all, but damn you have to go far before Youtube stops telling you Brain forced mating is something you want to see.

    Thanks.
  4. For a year I had my school have a misspelling of my name in their database. Literally every form I had to fill out came back with my spelling "corrected." It wasn't even the usual misspelling that everyone tends to make.

    Wait you actually watched the show and still post here. Can you give me a dose of sanity and confirm that the ending made no sense since...:

    TIAM: Entertainment Stuff

    Yes, exactly. If 3D really is better than those should be universally amazing.

    Disney and Netflix are doing their best to prove that 2D > 3D.

    Mirrodin/Kamigawa standard was shit. Ravnica/Time Spiral standard was awesome. Lorwyn/Alara standard was shit. I think you may be on to something here.

    Valve used to be one of the most innovative companies, but now they just get sloppy seconds on every new fad.

    This is about as far from innovation in Vtubing as you can get but I found it cute:

  12. There was a forum that I used to frequent that specifically cultivated political flamewars, all for clicks. A former mod actually leaked internal policies on a different site. The highest rank of mods were required to have at least three accounts (the "official" account, and two accounts that would take opposing sides in arguments). Whenever a discussion settled down it was the duty of a mod to say something inflammatory to get lots of responses. When someone actually made good points and got people to agree with each other, that poster would be banned. (Just to be cheeky, the two most common reasons for bans were "possession of alt accounts" and "trying to incite a flamewar"). Apparently the model worked well enough for them to stay in business, because they got a lot of advertising revenue.

    In which we post the randomest shit we find on YouTube.

    In the continuing file of "what the fuck is this timeline" I can't believe that this is a real thing that happened: Next year we'll find out that the picture was taken by JJ Abrams.
