#1

What’s yours?

Me? - Reading the comments on the Daily Mail website


#2

Watching NCIS


#3

Plane crashes…


#4

Conspiracy theories, apparently.


#5

Christ.

Do you need an Intervention?


#6

I quite like it. It’s not as good as Castle or the Mentalist though, obviously.


#7

^this

weird phenomena (like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fan_death)

the possibility of nuclear war


#8

I enjoy a bit of fan death too.

Was also a bit obsessed with nuclear war when I was a nipper, but then again it was a fairly real possibility in the 80s. When The Wind Blows and Threads put a fairly sizeable dent in my childhood tbh tbf…


#9

Japanese urban legends and theories about the end of the universe for me, Clive


#10

YouTube is a veritable cornucopia for morbid fascination.
I find myself watching all sorts of videos showing weird deaths and injuries.


#11

I’ve mentioned it before on here.

Over the next nine days, Slotin suffered an “agonizing sequence of radiation-induced traumas”, including severe diarrhea, reduced urine output, swollen hands, erythema, “massive blisters on his hands and forearms”, intestinal paralysis, and gangrene.

His reckless ways also saved a few people but ultimately he was working on the Manhattan project and killed a lot more innocent people which is slightly worse.

Basically these: https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/true-life the more depressing the better


#14

I’m kind of into people being kidnapped and held captive for years. I just find it fascinating.


#15

any kind of true crime stuff, disappearances, etc.

Do you listen to Criminal podcast?

It’s like individual crime stories, all different kinds, and they’re only about 10-20 mins long and so interesting.


#17

^Bloody love Criminal.

Sword and Scale is the OTT murder equivalent, and some episodes are totally awful and really bad, but sometimes I can’t stop myself from listening to it.


#18

nah i never really get on with those things, they’re always a bit too hammy. i need the cold hard facts.


#19

ooh I’m gonna get on this, cheers!


#20

On the subject of True Crime: was reading the latest stuff on the JonBenet Ramsey murder that came out today.

Morbid and fascinating

when I took the trains for work I got into it a lot, but there were a couple of episodes that were super bad (like, victim-blaming and almost emotionally manipulating the audience) but yeah, it’s pretty addictive
