Re: « What's on your mind? »

I thought this was a good up-to-date discussion of what is going on with COVID-19, the COVID-19 vaccinations, wearing a mask after getting vaccinated, and much more. Mostly a United States focus but the interview does discuss stuff that affects everyone. Dr. Sanjay Gupta Discusses the Coronavirus On...

Re: « What's on your mind? »

Yes, plastic recycling is a scam and has been from the beginning. This video does a good job of identifying the problem. It does include some solutions but plastic pollution is a gigantic problem. Awareness is the first step. Plastic Recycling is an Actual Scam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJnJ8m...

Re: YouTube Ads

Old post. Someone woke it last month. Still relevant. YouTube ads are out of control. I was watching a medium-long video a few months back. Someway, somehow, there was an ad every couple of minutes. If you count the ads at the beginning and end of the video, there were 8 to 10 ads for a 13 minute v...

Blast from the past. The original was released in 1985. This live version was performed 20 years later at Live 8 in Berlin.

More on the ads on Samsung TVs. I just found this on the assholedesign subreddit. Apparently spending $2500 on a Samsung TV doesn't create them enough revenue.

Re: « What's on your mind? »

I agree. Advertising has become significantly pervasive. I've avoided it as much as I can by watching Netflix and downloading or recording shows so that I can skip through the commercials. But "they" are figuring out ways to make it much harder to avoid ads. I just got Windows 10 and I noticed that ...

Re: « What's on your mind? »

I am horrible with names in real life. Online is even worse for me. I have been on this site for many years but if you asked me to name as many online names as I could, I might be able to remember 4 or 5. If you put a bunch of names in front of me, I would do better but I couldn't attach a personali...
