I never thought my adult life would be spent watching people aggressively and constantly going to bat for the most average media created by the worst most reprehensible people

UBI wouldn't fix everything but I'd have a much easier time being alive

How much does it cost to advertise on youtube??? How much are people spending to try & force me to see rogan listening intently to a creationist or whatever? Almost half the ads I see when I open the app to manage a playlist or whatever are like real life illegal

wild how youtube will just bombard you with sub-bottom shelf scams & righwing misinfo & calls to violence & you don't even get a clear option to say for example "this isn't even an advert for a thing it's just a virus website illegally using the likeness of jimmy MrBeast" or "this is hate speech"

Imagine telling someone in the 00s that writing software for a chain of shops, a financial services company and a CRM company wouldn't even pay off a credit card despite the fact I don't have dependants, have "cheap" rent for my area, don't drink or smoke or drive or any expensive stuff like that.
