26 Reasons to Hate the Internet

It's a wonderful invention, phenomenal in spreading knowledge and allowing people to interact. But it's being fouled by vile seekers after 'monetizing' you and I, flooding us with clickbait.

1. Surprising things people notice about you.
2. Amazing mom beats ageing.
3. Doctors will hate you for knowing this.
4. The 10 most amazing places.
5. Secret places you didn’t know were there.
6. Celebrities who now look shocking.
7. 21 things you should know about diets.
8. What they won’t tell you about your health.
9. Wait till you see what she looks like now.
10. Mysterious photos that will scare you.
11. Secrets of a flat stomach.
12. Tricks that investors don’t know about.
13. Is George Clooney’s wife pregnant?
14. Photos that will make your skin crawl.
15. This mattress could change you forever.
16. 100 things they don’t want you to know.
17. Bella flaunts her figure in bikini while clutching a pig.
18. Obese mom can’t walk far enough to see daughter dance.
19. Guilt ridden people’s most shocking secrets.
20. Mouldy breast implants cause hair loss terror.
21. Lessons they don’t teach you in school.
22. 9 out of 10 homeowners don’t know these tricks.
23. Celebrity Big Brother will make or break Coleen’s marriage.
24. Bianca kisses Jamie in toilet.
25. Facts about food that will surprise you.
26. Amazing seaweed cures cancer.

All of you: STOP filling the world with carp and ****e! Get out of my home! Get off my computer! Get off my lap! Stop treating me like the moron I am! Let me out, I no longer want to live!

In case you don’t understand, I am NOT interested in any of your facile, crass, click-bait stories. (Except the one about the bikini and the pig).

Is 24 a euphemism?

Yes, I agree wholeheartedly.
We used to get those irritating phone calls that ask you if you have a computor, or if you have had an accident that wasn't your fault, you know the ones.
My wife used to get really angry and tell them to flog off.
But I used to spend time talking to them, to get them into thinking "I've got this one on the hook", and them I would tell them something that would blow the whole thing out of the water.
They would tell me about new windows and go into the whole story as to how they will save money on heating etc, and after a long chat where they are thinking what they can spend their commission for this one on, I will let it slip that if my LANDLORD agrees I will have it done.
The best one was when I had a young girl trying to get me to buy something I didn't want. I said
"I bet you are a very pretty young girl"
"Whats that got to do with it" she said.
I said, " Well! Me, I am a grey haired old git who invented half the scams you are now attempting to use to get me to spend money I haven't got, on something nobody in the Northern Hemisphere would ever want.
She put the phone down after telling me I should find better things to do with my time.
Titter, titter.
Never forget, click bait is only click bait if you click on it.
I am glad in a way that the internet and the TV are so bad.
It means I have an excuse to get out in the garage and restore my bikes and cars. Which is where I am off to now.

26 Reasons to Hate the Internet

All them are just click-bait-sites for gossipers that read things like OK Magazine.

In fact, more than half of those stories appear on here as advertisements.

Just as bad as the threads that get started on here, like Gibbo’s word of the day.

Utter tosh!

Whenever you see any of the opening list of "things to pique your interest", just go straight to the comments and feel rejoice that you didn't click on the actual article.

The comments always give spoilers and sometimes throw up comedy gems

I find it hard to take anyone's views on the subject seriously whilst they are sending, "from their iPhone using Tapatalk."
