  1. One youtube channel that I found recently that I've liked is Roaming Millenial. It's just one person giving her opinion, but it's given me some clue into opposing views without being particularly extreme. I do like Philip DeFranco too, I never even thought about a bias from his coverage so I guess he's doing it well.

  2. I get most of my news from Youtube, Podcasts, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Google Suggestions and Reddit, probably in that order. I don't go to specific sites for news and basically just wait for someone to talk about it somewhere. To keep from being trapped in an echo chamber I do try to also follow people who I disagree with or don't particularly like, but that's also because I enjoy hating these people internally or laughing at their ridiculous logic. Sometimes though they say something that makes sense and I like to get a view on how other people think so it's interesting nonetheless.


    The whole fake news thing annoys me. There were some children in Macedonia who were making thousands by just inventing stories related to the US election. They started covering both sides but since they were making much more money targeting republicans, they focused on that instead. The fact that people just believe anything they read is disappointing but it is understandable, especially if they want to agree with the content. I'm not afraid to call out a shared story as fake if I see it on facebook and will happily tell the poster why it is inaccurate. I'm becoming more and more interested in giving people simple information on topics that are rife with misinformation and am working on a few blog posts to share with my facebook friends. Probably won't do anything to change their minds but I enjoy the research regardless.

  3. They might be giving him views, but he's not getting ad revenue from them. Should everyone in "luxury" markets be thankful they have a job at all? For some demographics, people like him are their main source of entertainment, same as TV used to be.


    There's somewhat of an adblockalypse since Apple made adblocking mainstream and Google is making efforts to change the way ads are presented to combat this. Both with this and the new specifications for making news content faster to load on the web.


    I don't like how Youtube is pulling an Apple Music and not paying youtubers for views during the free trial. If this is true they should change that very quickly.

  4. I already pay for Google Play Music and that's bundled in so I'm not going to complain about the removal of ads from Youtube and the ability for locked screen and offline playback and extra content.


    People will still get all their normal ad-paid videos, this is just like the extra content youtubers already put on services like patreon which increase youtuber revenue through their community, because ad supported revenue is not high enough to support the growth of certain styles of videos (mainly the ones that take a long time and are expensive, such as animation).


    It's a way for people who love watching youtube to help support the creators more. I think it's a good thing.

  5. Have been using MyFitnessPal to keep myself to 1600 calories per day, done the couch to 5k programme and am on the last day of it and I've been gradually increasing how many laps I do of the swimming pool at the gym. Have lost around 1kg per week, been able to run 6.5km non stop and swim 1500 metres so I'm really glad with the way I've improved my fitness from basically doing nothing. Have lost nearly 9kg so far.


    Things are going well :)

  6. I thought that's what you were saying.


    So can you explain why you supposedly protected the No 1 suspect at the time and also pressed for the lynch of the the very same guy you were "protecting"?


    Do you mean yourself? I protected you to see if you were interfered with and went on to try and lynch you because at first I thought you were untargetable but then for realising you were targeting the victim without interference.


    Funny how you accused sheikah of being suspicious for attacking the person he was trying to lynch, but then ask this clearly loaded question when I do the opposite.


    I know dawg, that was exactly my point!






    Cos I totally was saying you definitely had no target, dawg.


    (hint:it's the 'quote marks')


    What a wonderful power that gives you "apparent" information. I don't care whether you believe it or not, it shows clear shenanigans with a "townie's" power.


    Diageo are you claiming protector?


    Good guess.

  8. On break 1 jayseven targetted Diageo; but I didn't know what he'd done to him. On break 2, I was roleblocked/cuffed, but someone's info(I think Cube) suggested jayseven hadn't targetted me AND jayseven said he had been told on break 2 that he was told he didn't need to target his target or that it was useless - if that was me then someone ELSE was the roleblocker who roleblocked me with handcuffs, and so I felt it rather convenient that Diageo retrospectively claimed my roleblocker was his roleblocker, when I don't think it was the case. I think he WAS tied up rather than handcuffed, and I thought it'd be by jayseven and he was trying to make a fit to suit him.

    I had two people target me the first night, one handcuffed me and one removed them. Doesn't mean jayseven is the handcuffer.

    Having tried to track Diageo again last night - I couldn't/he 'apparently' targeted no one with some flavour, but I had added flavour that said he was targetting someone and I couldn't quite see or so.



    [character] Or something like that, dawg. I don't buy he had nuthin' to do with our juice going missing...which means I still ain't getting paid til we get to the bottom of this!


    Vote: Diageo


    Your reading skills sure are bad, dawg! Just as bad as your memory! Might be worth looking at what I said again, y'kno...


    As you can see dawg, you said I had no target and then apparently added flavour to say I did. So your information is pretty unreliable to say the least.

  9. Well if sprout had gone for what is expected, because I protected him he could have gotten a great investigation on me without any interference. But he decided to be the Wiley investigator that gets a town lynched because his strategic playing doesn't take into consideration having wrong information.


    There's already been the note that no one has seen again and now rummy is coming up with some bullshit about me having no target even though two people can attest to my power. Can't you see how even "confirmed" townies are getting their powers messed with.

  10. And you couldn't have investigated me and cleared this whole thing up? Great investigating pal.


    I don't know what to say now to be honest. If anyone else tried to target DuD the night before they would have been able to confirm that I indeed targeted him. But MadDog got redirected by some shadow and a few other players aren't speaking up and probably didn't send targets.


    The only thing I can think of is that you were messed with Sprout. But to be honest I would vote for me at this point because no one else has any leads.

  11. See, that's the difference to you private detectives and us real detectives, pal. After a heated discussion like last night, you can't go targeting the obvious because people are going to anticipate that. You have to do the unexpected! Lucky that I copied your powers, eh? And instead of incriminatin' someone (which knowing Jonnas was very much a possibility if you were a thief...), I investigated Rummy and found out that he was innocent.


    This confirms that DuD is an alignment investigator, as he has claimed (he's just a pretty unlucky one... and not very good at theorising to boot, but that's private detectives for ya =P). This also means it was impossible for him to incriminate Mr-Paul and Sméagol. And as my evidence showed yesterday, the only other person to target Sméagol during Break 2... was Diageo, pals.


    Vote: Diageo

    Surely last night you should have used Smeagol's power like you had said then instead of DuD's or that doesn't make sense?

  12. Yep day powers in a game containing day powers is mind bogling and whos ever heard of a tracker??


    Absolute ridiculous ideas.. i agree ;)

    What day power are you talking about? And what does a tracker have to do with anything. Are you saying they have a tracker that tracked you each night, got their result before the night was over and decided if they wanted to kill your target just so you could look suspicious?


    Very simple altogether.

  13. I haven't been killing. I assume they have a way of knowing someone's target and then they kill the same person as me.

    Wouldn't be very convenient to kill someone on the guilty team though would it?

    That is the weirdest power you've just made up there. So basically you claim to be an alignment investigator, but all your targets are dead so you have no information to give and now have been roleblocked and still have nothing.


    So you have no proof of your power and have targeted two victims. I think there's enough there for a lynch to be honest.


    Vote DuD

  14. This again? Convenient that you didn't get to use your power to investigate me and see that I'm innocent. ¬¬


    Well I targeted Sprout last night and if anyone can verify that for me that would be great.


    @DuD, did you try targeting @Sprout?

    Am I correct in assuming you targeted sprout but couldn't reach him? Maybe because of some sick ass guitar playing?


    Zvarri.. I targetted Jay :blank:


    Nah, I didn't really.. I was unable to reach my target. I was deterred by shrieking.


    Vote: Diageo


    If anyone knows the shreikah, it stands to reason they're guilty seeing as they roleblocked a claimed alignment investigator.

    If it was you doing the killing then surely there would be no kill instead of just a random other person?

  15. All well and good dawg, but I don't really know anything about you...except that I couldn't find you!


    Maybe Wocky's just having some last minute fun, too ;)


    Do you enjoy being a shit stirrer? Ignoring a valid point by making shit up. This was the only point you brought up before voting so it better not be the only reason you're voting.
