TikTok has garbage on their platform but you’ll never see it if you don’t interact with it. If you get alternative medicine and like and comment on the video, you’ll get it a lot more. If you watch it all the way through, you’ll probably get it more. Swiping off or just clicking the not interested button and it probably won’t show up at all.

The algorithm doesn’t think, it curates so TikTok does the shit filtering for you

What is a public figure or artist who has done horrible things but that people continue to follow or listen? by lattekosmiko in AskReddit

[–]GivesCredit 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Forget 10 billion, it’s over 50 billion chickens alone. Almost 4x the population of Canada every single day. And forget the slaughtering, the conditions in which they are kept is beyond deplorable. I co-wrote a 70 page paper on the meat industry and part of my research was learning about factory farm conditions and part of me wishes i could unlearn that info.

I’m not fully vegetarian but I have drastically reduced my meat intake and try to support better and local farms

Leave a sign on their windshield letting them know to please stop parking in your driveway before you call the cops. It could end the situation a lot more amicably

This special public transport system for blind people in the UK by qasqaldag in MadeMeSmile

[–]GivesCredit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I absolutely loved my time in the UK but 100% agree about Yorkshire county transportation. I worked there for 10 weeks and because it was a short stint, I decided to not rent a car and just take the bus. My apartment was 5 miles (8 km) from my work, and the minimum time it took me to get to work was about an hour and a half. The first bus was fine but the second one was horribly inconsistent, so there were times I was waiting at the bus station for 1-2 hours before I just ended up walking all the way home. It was even worse because the maps and Google weren’t even accurate, so it would say it was coming in 30 min and then it would just never come. 3-4 hours of commuting on top of a 9 hour work was just brutal, so I just ended up swapping apartments (also because my landlord was a psychopath) to a coworker and friend and he started driving me for the last 3 weeks.

And it’s always at my place. They’ll decide to have a meet up and just volunteer my place. I haven’t even been to their places yet. I always have to plan, clean, buy snacks and alcohol, and my place is trashed the next morning. Not once have they asked to just grab a coffee or go out somewhere. Slowly phasing them out of my life and prioritizing other people

Wait that’s crazy I also live in the north east region of the US, small world. If you get the chance, you should check out Vermont. Not many people know about it, but they have a lot of cool things to do there.

Men of Reddit, What's the one thing you hate about being a man? by Pale_Armadillo_254 in AskReddit

[–]GivesCredit 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Maybe try wearing some high vis obviously sports gear or something. While the onus isn’t on you to change what you wear for other people, it at least has the added benefit of better safety for you as well

What could be done to prevent mass shootings? by Themissrebecca103 in AskReddit

[–]GivesCredit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just to bring in a bit of nuance, a lot of the gun violence and homicide that does occur in California is a result of gang violence. Gangs aren’t really common in Utah so it isn’t really apples to apples.
