    What I find weird is that in the old days you’d have to make do with a photo of your national psycho murderer being bundled in or out of a police van, now you get videos of them on trampolines and taliking about how many YouTube subscribers they’ve got.

    What do people make of the recent Momo news in Peppa pig videos ect? Some Schools are warning parents about it apparently.

    I say apparently as it's in the news and all over Facebook. Personally think t's fake news being spread by adults and kids are then finding it. For those that don't know what I mean maybe not search for it and let your kids use your phone afterwards. I think that's what's spreading it.

    @Nitrous Tough one. Not a fan of hysterical school warning letters. But I know for a fact that if I'd come across one of those videos when I was... say... 8, it would have been a nightmare fuel supply good for several months.

    To be honest, best solution I can come up with is "parents, don't let your kids anywhere near youtube because it is full of cunts".

    Yeah, I am not sure why I would let my son near youtube, when I have kids netflix.

    I feel like I’m going to post this and everyone will say “of course”, but, but- there’s another set of Chuckle Brothers. We have spares. They have (had) two older brothers, also a showbiz doubleact.

    Maybe not news as such, but it just about fits here:

    man complains that his image is used unfairly on article that claims all hipsters look alike. It wasn't him.

    The video of her screaming in self pity is quite satisfying.

    I couldn't believe the amount of cretins sitting on the wall/fence overlooking the Niagara Falls taking selfies.

    People die doing it. Good for the gene pool I suppose.

    Wow.

    One of the studio execs wanted to change the title of "Back to the Future" to "Spaceman from Pluto"

    It's from Sid Sheinberg, ie no surprise there.

    Look at his infamous cut of Terry Gilliam's Brazil to see where such memos lead.

    No foul play suspected in that missing hicker case.

    "... she was found naked, face-down and with visible blows to her body."

    Um...

    Yeah, but reading between the lines she was a hippie who used to go up and watch the sunrise naked. And slipping and falling down the rocks would cause some bruising, so it is not quite as weird as it first seems.

    Its a bit weird though as her clothing was found in all different places.

    Sure no problem getting nekkid on a mountain top but surely it would all be in a pile rather than all other the place.

    Got to be murder.

    Sometimes I think there must be a whole level of celebrity that I'm just oblivious to. I don't really wear the ignorance as a badge of honour or anything, but I don't really feel the need to know about them either. I don't feel like I'm missing out, though of course I may be wrong about that.

    Recently one of my housemates recommended all these massive YouTube personalities she watched (none of which I knew, but had millions upon millions of views on their videos), and the best I could offer in return was that weird Japanese guy who makes kitchen knives out of pasta.
