What ruined my day? More like what ruined my life. I waited 3 years for a reunion with a girl I thought I knew. Everything was fine until today. Just because I got scared that she was cutting herself and didn't offer "support" meant she ditched me and was instantly with another one of her exes, labeled me as a fuckboy, and "conveniently" forgot the promises she made to me.

I woke up sick with my annual sinus infection but I've been trying the homemade antibiotic which is honey mixed with turmic and a little bit of black pepper and oddly enough it seems to be working I don't feel that sick any more.

My car decided to randomly, without any warning what-so-ever, poop the bed this morning. Sounds like a crappy go-cart. Really hoping I don't have to replace the entire exhaust system...

I've said it before but we have become a spoiler culture. It used to be that if someone made a video containing a spoiler about a movie you'd have to watch it. Now they literally put the spoiler in the thumbnails and title of the video so even if you don't watch it you get spoiled.

I wasn't even watching Godzilla videos and a video showed up in my recommendation about King of the Monsters that has a possible spoiler in the title of the video. The movies a year away, are you skreeonking kidding me? It used to be that the 3 or 4 weeks leading up to a movie you knew it was time to stay off the net till you saw it, but almost a whole year? Are you skreeonking kidding me?

People can make videos talking about spoilers but putting it in the title or thumbnail or worse, both is such an asshole thing. It;s one thing when someone clicks on a video and complains, they're an idiot, but when someone just glances at videos recommended on the side and see's a pic or title that spoils poop, that's the uploaders fault.

Thats one of the reasons I quit watching DMan1954, him and others spoiled me on Shin.

Had to stop watching the TK Twitter after they started posting Shin spoiler scans before the movie hit theaters in the US :( I'm not without guilt, though; got a complaint once for sharing a picture of those tiny toy Muto figures before we knew much about them. Sorry you had to run into the YouTube thumbnail thing. Be careful when you Google info, too, Google likes to show similar thumbnails and headlines alongside the results (was spoiled this way before a Smash Bros. direct talking about datamining right in the damn thumbnail).

Found your problem. He's friends with with troll asshole channels. The one's trying to emulate a "leafy"...whatever the skreeonk that is.

Also, yes this guy's thumbnail spoiled Shin's tail laser power for me.

Oh, yeah more than person spoiled Shin for me, but out of the 4 who did it, only one was being an ass on purpose. the Rest I've forgiven, poop happens.

Hell I skreeonked up and spoiled one of Nemesis powers for someone from the Nemesis series of books.

You mean it wasn't the extremely immature captions and pointlessly tagging every person associated with Legendary and Warner that did it?

In regards to Corpse's complaint, I wholeheartedly agree. Thankfully, there's measures you can take to try and protect yourself as best as you can, such as browser extensions and filters on sites like Reddit.

Since you use YouTube a lot, I highly recommend Video Blocker:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... gfhk?hl=en
(Also available on FireFox, but idk what browser you use)

Not only can you filter specific channels, you can also filter specific keywords. I use this and have had some good success with it in regards to avoiding God of War spoilers, so I hope it can be of some use to you.

In my experience, before the world wide web nobody worried about spoilers, and everybody was giving everything away all the time in conversations. The idea that anyone worries about spoilers is way more of a shift to my perception.

It's not a net thing.

Before the internet everyone I knew (including myself) still hated being spoiled for a movie we wanted to see. You just notice it more now because some douches think it's funny to ruin other people's movie going experience.

But there's a difference between a personal preference (even a common one) and a cultural dictate.

But, I'll clarify my original intent here, and say that I think the world wide web radically increased mainstream consciousness of the question of spoilers, an issue which - with regards to movies - had been a matter of some discussion specifically among cinephiles since at least Psycho.

Yes, as I literally just said, people already had a problem with having movies spoiled for them, but it was not an issue that was treated as a codified cultural norm.

More importantly, "I Married Marge" is a pretty great episode.

Anyway, we're pretty far off topic, so I'm going to refrain from commenting further on the spoiler issue.

Yeah intresting story, a guy said I was acting like a child for having Shin spoiled for me because, and I quote, "I had Destroy All Monsters spoiled for me."

Destroy All Monsters had been out for decades. Shin hadn't even been brought to the U.S. theaters yet.

I get the issue with spoilers, but I personally have found greater happiness in accepting spoilers and actually seeking them out. I've found it doesn't actually ruin the viewing experience for me at all, because the story telling should be able to stand on it's own without relying on any sort of surprise aspect.

So, I spoil myself, absorbing as much information about a film or show as early as I possibly can with only one exception and that's Game of Thrones, and I do that just as a treat because I get way too into that show. Having said that, I know other's don't share this belief so I don't go around spewing them.

There have actually been one or two studies done (with, it should be noted, very small sample sizes, and very specific terms) that suggested that having a work "spoiled" allows the audience to enjoy it more.

But, obviously, all the studies in the world won't negate people's individual, lived experiences.
