Fortnite. Its a crap shooter with crap graphics and crap 'feel' and crap features but has cult status with the really young crowd for some reason. Ok the last man standing thing is kinda cool but played it a couple of time and there was nothing there for me.

Other than that contemporary tv shows. Strictly, soaps, love island, all that crap. Wtf? Who in their right mind is being entertained by that?

There are so many that hate her but have never even listened to her though, that's the really disturbing thing tbh - it's populist hatred against a child. Again, it's really fucking weird and I don't get it.


Other things I don't get -

good fuel economy.

Completely agree with you, but her parents have put her in the position and I believe they'll make plenty of £££'s off her fame. It's similar to Justin Beiber, millions hated him for no reason when he first hit the music scene, no wonder he's become an abnoxius little twit

Funko Pops. Ugly plastic yokes with a faint resemblance to a pop culture character.

Blind allegiance to big brands; Cola Cola, Budweiser, Tommy Whatshisname.

The Greta phenomenon.

Tell them they'll get their future back when they learn to behave.

This thread being a perfect example, the most common topic in the first 2 pages is anti-Greta Thunberg posts... Does she really affect you that much?
Jesus..I have nothing against the girl personally.

My problem is that literally nothing she is saying/doing is of her own accord. She is a vile PR shill and being taken advantage of. Can't believe people are too thick to realise that.

I don't know the girl, I dont dislike the girl. It's the FACT that everything is written for her. Every action she does is potted out for her. Not one thing she has done is from her own mind/heart and it's grim.

Only slightly related, but last Christmas a young relative showed me a picture that someone they knew had posted on instagram or whatever.

The girl had laid out all their Christmas presents on a bed, all expensive items that most people would be over the moon about.

Then the caption underneath "this is all I fooking got, shyt christmas".

It wasn't ironic either, apparently. There's "spoilt" and then there's the next level. Made me want to go on a murder spree.

I won't forget it, absolutely disgraceful.

Brown sauce....vile.

Also anything that isn't real butter on bread, horrible rubbish.

Woman's make up that makes them look like drag queens...bad ones.
Inglot is like Halloween all year round.

Oh and people who get injections in their lips, bizarre looking.

OOkay, You have nothing against her and don't dislike her but she is a vile PR shill and everyone else is thick.


Man, you have literally justified the things that I don't get post you quoted in reply..

Why is it so annoying to you though - can't you just ignore her like the rest of us that don't care?

Sorry, I'm sure this stuff has been done to death by now anyway, I will continue in bewilderment, as I'm sure the triggered aul lads will continue in spitting out bile.

Twitter & Instagram...not occasional use, I mean I just don’t understand the mentality that accompanies an almost constant living of a life through these sites. Equally, I don’t get your ones that are on there insulting and trolling people all day, every day...where do they get the time, energy, inclination?

People posting their entire lives on social media and the constant need for validation.

Celebrity worship. I mean people who are so influenced by celebs or get tattoos of them. It's to like someone's music or movies or whatever, but to worship them is just really weird and quite sad

Why so thousands of priests raped young boys? Did they all turn gay when they entered the priesthood or something? Can't understand it
