    What the actual f**k!!!!!!!

    A youtube catfight between two no mark beauticians.
    I don't care who endorsed what product or if they've fallen out.
    It's irrelevant. It's boring. As are they.
    Jeez, millions of people following folk on twatter and instacrap who have nothing interesting to talk about but think they do.

    I am well aware of the irony in me posting this on the net and am only partly serious.
    No....actually I am serious. The levels of inanity are unbelievable.

    I'm with you on that, Churts.
    This, right here, is my one and only form of social media, and only because it is something that interests me as it is BFC based.
    My phone is a Nokia (and I am not a particularly old fella) as I shun Facebook and all that rubbish where folk just publish their lives online. Happy to share a photo of their tea with the world, but won't make eye contact or talk if you come face to face with them in Aldi.
    I ring people, I talk to people, I even still send handwritten faxes at work. The only thing about me that isn't still stuck in the 90s (and that includes my sh1t dress sense) is that I have been known to send the occasional text message.
    Could rant all day, but I won't........

    Agreed mate. Normally it would have passed me by but having a 17 year old in the house means I get exposed to youtube more often. I hate the cult of celebrity and the assumption that just because someone is famous they have something important to say.
    Anyway, it's a quiet Sunday morning so I felt like a rant. :)

    Yep. I have a 17 year old, and a 13 year old. I look back to when I was 13 in the late 80s. Used to call for mates, on my bike, knock on their door and speak to their parents, then off out, swimming in ponds, playing football, climbing trees....
    Sad sign of the times, kids don't climb trees any more.
    They just use their thumbs to communicate with the world using their Apple devices.
    If I knew where it was plugged in, I would unplug the internet right here and now.
    By Christ, I got up in a good mood today too, and now I am doing a Meldrew rant - on the Internet!!!
    What a double standards miserable [email protected] I am, eh?

    Younger generation don't fully realise what they could get themselves " into", by publishing
    their personal information on Facebook. My youngest lad tells me of things he's put on there
    and I warn him of the possible ramifications. His answer is always " calm down Dad, it's just for a laugh."

    And don't get me started on Mobile phones.! The scourge of modern society. Slaloming around people
    in precincts with their head down texting on their mobiles, could be turned into an Olympic event.

    We were in Costa on Friday. There were around eight couples at adjoining tables. I drew my wife's
    attention to the fact that at least six couples never exchanged a single word the whole time we were in there.
    They were lifting their cups to their mouths to have a drink whilst still staring down at their mobile phones.

    Miss those days of playing footy all day at the park and falling asleep watching Sunday evening TV with catchphrase and bullseye. You knew your mates mams and dads like family and they even cooked your tea for you sometimes.

    In short Tati and her husband helped JC with his career then he went and promoted a rival product of what Tati does. Tati responded by saying he goes after straight guys to try and turn them. Then he got a reputation and lost millions of subscribers.

    At one point last week the two most read stories on the BBC website were about a bloke who is good at make-up using the wrong shampoo and a woman showing off her kid's feet.

    I'm fully computered up in that I've got a latest generation smart phone and a powerful home PC.

    I love them. I've got a photo lab that would have cost me hundreds of thousands pre digital in a nice little box on my desk and a method of communicating with friends abroad that I couldn't even imagine never mind thought possible only a decade ago or so.

    This thing in my hand helps me organise all my bills and my banking, makes travel a joy and genuinely improves my life.

    I don't have a Facebook account, I don't use twitter, I don't even watch TV. I don't know what Churtonred is referring to, I had a childhood very similar to what Julian Broddle's Perm describes, but I love this technology. It's how you use it I think and today I'll be using it to take photos of flowers, find footpaths I didn't know existed and review the route I've taken when I get back, how far I walked and the photos I've taken while it plays me Astral Weeks by Van Morrison.

    To be fair, those millions of people probably think this forum has got not nothing interesting to talk about but we think we do. And I suspect they would be right.
    11 blokes kicking a ball about week after week after week we and all gather religiously to discuss - not exactly world-changing stuff is it.
    We could all spend our time in a more socially productive way.

    On the subject of levels of inanity - I would refer the right honourable gentleman to Young Nudger's posts...

    To be even fairer, those millions of people are totally oblivious to this forum.

    Sometimes it does you good to let it all out.
    I've been out for a nice day round the far end of the peninsula, looked at the sea a lot and chilled. :)
    I'm ready for anything now, Tatey, Logan Paul, Pewdieflippinpie, bring em all on!

    Apparently this James Charles was being a predator towards young men confused about their sexual preference. Now sexual predators are the vilest of the vile, but surely it's easy to determine if you're completely heterosexual or not? Put some gay porn on and if you're aroused you're bisexual at least, if you feel a bit queasy you know you're 100% straight. It's not difficult.
