Youtube thinks I like this now

I went on there this morning, and my recommendations were suddenly just wall to wall “WATCH IT MELT channel” and “Hydraulic Press Action” and I’m not really sure why.

This video’s a bit creepy and seems like something for junior serial killers. A man heats up a knife and then just cuts up loads of household objects with it. This is where they start before moving on to neighbourhood pets.

YouTube thinks I like short high intensity interval training videos because my gf uses MY account on MY Xbox to watch them.

Fuming.


#4

Maybe you should do some exercise?


#5

Is that a dig at my bad knees? Because that’s not on.


#6

It’s in my recommended too. What have we done @_Em?!


#7

I’m sure there’s a youtube exercise video for people with painful knees. What are you waiting for?

#9

Permission from my physio.


#10

I quite like the one where he puts toilet paper in and turns into into some pressed fiberboard.


#11

Love How Its Made videos. Not so sure about Watch It Melt.


#12

You’re excused. You can sit on the bench and watch everyone else play netball, the world’s least fun sport.


#13

Some men just want to watch the world melt.


#14

Maybe the hot knife guy is really rich and spent a fortune on making sure we see him stabbing things?


#16

You’d be a terrible PE teacher. The standard response to “I can’t do this activity because my doctor says I might cause myself irreparable harm” is to run laps of something on your own while everyone else has fun.


#18

I rarely did PE at school. I was good at writing my own convincing forged notes. Or just not going to school when it was PE.


#19

I have a bone condition that meant I couldn’t do contact sports for a few years for (legitimate, doctor-approved) fear of breaking every long bone in my body. PE teachers seemed to take this as a personal insult of some kind.


#20

I have spent way too much time supervising kids using dangerous stuff. So I automatically start mentally going “no, that is not how you use a stanley knife, put that down” “why is this not in a fume cupboard”?

(Or adults who have volunteered to make rockwall panels but turn out to be less sensible than schoolkids- @Ruffers please never ever let N near an electric drill or even a stanley knife unsupervised ever again)


#21

Yeah love it. Hydraulic presses, stuff with fire/blowtorches/hot metal balls (steady…), stuff getting destroyed in slow motion.


#23

I think all school PE teachers must go to a special school of sadism where they also disavow medicine. They all seem to think asthma stems from personal and moral weakness too.


#24

No but I have seen Uranium and Iridium together in my dreams :wink:
