Do it.

Also, the team who made Watership Down made another animated film also based on a book by Richard Adams called Plague Dogs.

Serious warning: if Watership Down is a difficult watch DO NOT RESEARCH PLAGUE DOGS ANY FURTHER!

Alternatively, if you enjoy weeping like a baby, go right ahead and track it down.

When I bought the thing it took me almost 6 months to work up the guts to watch it, coz I knew what it was going in - even though I was never that hard affected by Watership Down.

I loved The Plague Dogs when I was a child. There was a van that would come round and rent out videos must have rented it over one hundred times.

I love the notion that gay people get killed because they're asking for too many rights too quickly and not giving violent murderous bigots time to acclimate to the idea of not killing people because they're gay.

I used to have a lot of sympathy for the guy because the whole internet personality deal seemed to give him a lot of anxiety (though I never understood why you'd choose the hot takes business if people being poo poo to you causes you immense mental anguish) but man, gently caress him if that's his idea of empathy.

Kim Justice has put out a nice little video about the disappearing arcade scene in Southend which probably mirrors the rest of the UK, I know it reminds me of what happened at my two local seaside resorts Barry Island and Porthcawl. It was a real trip down memory lane for me.

Outside of the weapon demonstrations my favourite part of the Deadliest Warrior was when they'd start the battle and it would just been some ninja walking through a random forest and encountering a Spartan. Then at the end when the ninja loses the ninja expert would say "yeah, the ninja would have just poisoned the Spartans food." Also when the IT nerd would say "eh, that doesn't look deadly." then the doctor would come in and say "actually that would kill a man."

That Simone Giertz channel looks amazing.

BIG YOUTUBE FIGHT NIGHT is over.

KSI vs Logan Paul ended in the result that literally no-one will ever be happy with - a draw. Logan won the first two rounds and 4 but was tired as hell by the end, KSI won 3, 5 and 6. Not a bad fight (technically better than the KSI-Weller fight), I had KSI edging it based on the last rounds but yeah...loving draw. People on Twitter, whether they're KSI fan, Logan fans or just casual watchers are SALTY as many of them experience what's likely their first ever total bullshit boxing decision. Needless to say, there will obviously be a rematch so everyone involved is going to make even more $$$$$$.

In the co-main, Jake Paul beat Deji by TKO in 5 rounds - Deji showed a lot of heart but was pretty clearly overmatched in there. The most fun fight of the night was easily AnEsonGib vs Jay Swingler though (you probably don't know either of them) - they pretty much just went all out for it and it was a good laugh. I mean...I like boxing so it was fun and I don't regret watching it but a draw is never good lol.

I know they're going to do a rematch but after that they should just sweep KSI and Paul under the ring and forget the whole thing happened.

Oh wait, I guess I did.

It may sound (un)surprising, but I don't remember a whole lot of MauLer rebuttal (I actually tapped out once it got to his own defense of DS2). Some of the bigger points he hit on that I do remember were about how HBomb video seemed more like he was trashing at Dark Souls 1, and how he patronized MatthewMatosis and his critique of DS2.

Max Wilco you loving animal. I didn't tap in, just added up the time to see how hosed up he was. I live in the same country might try and find him and steal his lunch money.

There was a thread started on the Kleenex story on another forum I post on. It got quite a few 'idiot feminists' and 'stupid women' posts. I had a quick look at the Guardian story that was posted and found the original tweet about the 4yo was by some head of a PR company and the other was by someone who called themselves a marketing genius. The tags for the Guardian article were something like "Marketing & PR" and "Advertising". It's amazing how easily people get suckered by this type of poo poo.

It all probably looks like time well spent now.

It's crazy that you can be a fan of someone and when something terrible happens to his family you're all over making jokes about it. Even if he says he's alright with it there's still a certain callousness to it.

He's not ok with it at all but is afraid of what will happen to him if he fights back against his own fans. He cultivated his entire audience by being a huge piece of poo poo and encouraging other people to be huge pieces of poo poo, and so now he's surrounded by huge pieces of poo poo that will turn on him if he acts human for even a moment.

Imagine your wife suffering horribly and being too afraid of the internet to just go comfort her. He deserves everything that's going to happen to him.

Well, thatís the audience heís cultivated. When you nurture an audience of shithead sociopaths who think Nothing Matters and encourage them to emulate your own colossally lovely behaviour by mercilessly attacking anyone who shows weakness or vulnerability, you donít get to really complain when they turn on you and use the tactics you taught them on you when you reveal a moment of weakness and vulnerability of your own to them.

Losing a child through miscarriage is an awful and traumatic event, but I have no sympathy for the Face-Eating Leopard trainer now that the leopards have realized he also has a face that can be eaten and have started to chow down.

Yes, the better the likes the more likely the video's going to be promoted. In fact, this goes for dislikes too - likes and dislikes are both treated the same in YouTube's system, so if a video gets mobbed by dislikes in order to get it down the search results or whatever, it actually has the opposite effect and brings it up.

Thanks and bravo Youtube, bravo. Also I asked this before and don't know if you answered it before so sorry if you have but that stick figure at the start of your videos is it a game character or something you've designed?
