I've been seeing this for years. One brand of soap I used to get gave the bottle a 'waist line' and it fucking shrank 20%, and 6 years later it still has "New!" on the label. Same high price, "New" smaller size.

Does not fucking shock me at all. I've been noticing changes in package sizes on various products for a long time. I don't have a closet full of stuff, like the woman in the above video does, to cite specific examples but I can tell just the same.

Chocolate bars are the first product I started noticing that they were getting smaller. Then it was cereal boxes and now everything else seems to be following the trend. I went WFT though when I saw that Kraft cheese slices in packages of 16 were down to 14! 8O

I can cite specific examples. Plastic storage bags for the freezer. I fucking buy those to keep things I make fresh. I buy the same 'medium' bags, and the cost varies, but I have boxes containing 50, 42 or 38 bags of the same size - depending on when I bought them.

You can even go to the display in the grocery store and see! A box of 38 may cost $7, but 3 boxes of 50 shrink wrapped together in a 'bulk pack' costs $12. How the fuck to they price things like that? [huh]

How do people not notice that they are doing that. Or worse yet say I can’t buy the three pack cause reasons I get that for food but plastic freezer bags aren’t that big to store and won’t go bad. I never understand the people who just wanted to complain about grocery prices but if you suggest something they have half a dozen reasons why they couldn’t do that and it won’t work anyway. Most of the time I don’t even listen anymore. People want to complain they don’t want suggestions. Once talked to a woman who was doing all her shopping for her family at a place called M&M meats which sells meal kits and precooked food! She actually bought the pot roast in a bag just had to heat it up. Like the easiest thing in the world to cook! She had to buy two cause the kids were growing!! I will never understand.

Fuck. We just had our 'Disaster Recovery' site lose power. For the Government.

How the FUCK does a DR site lose power? That is actually in the fucking definition, that it is not supposed to ever lose power or connectivity, because it is all redundant.

Doc don’t you remember all the disaster moves? Someone somewhere always fucks something up or cuts half a dozen corners and makes a potential problem 37 times worse! Then someone else crashes into the one single power line to the whole department. So the disaster recovery section is fucked and then everything really goes to shit! And there’s no one with information cause people are stupid and don’t think it will ever happen here. Oh I forgot there’s always a bean counter who doesn’t understand that the redundancy is built into the system to save everyone. He always says something like these redundant things are expensive and over kill for this setting!

It’s in the script that they can’t listen to you as your making sense!! Sorry to hear your day sucked!

How can anyone think this isn’t just sensationalism the only people that child should be talking to is mental health providers! Fcs this beyond stupid and heartless no one needs to hear from babies. How the fuck is that remotely helpful to anyone! Fuck and a hole lot more ranting. Taking care of babies doesn’t include interviews!! And yea I know if it bleeds it leads but this is too far!

Doc it wasn’t a rant about click bait or the YouTube algorithm. It was the world in general and news reporting in particular! And it’s not just them wanting to talk to these babies. There have been reports of reporters impeding people getting out of the way of the war in Ukrainian. Yes there should be a record of what happened and there has always been sensationalism in news. The families are raising money for therapy which is a a horrible comment on the US. Heck maybe they are offering therapy for the spot. It’s still fucked whatever way it’s playing out.

But they are related! The sensationalism that fucking youtube requires in the thumbnails that forces people to make them clickbait are also the same algorithms that require people to sensationalize their channel in order to get youtube to direct eyeballs their way. That's how Qanon works, and flat earthers, and Trumpanzees.

Cable news fell into that same fucking trap.

Point to Doc. It’s been so long since I’ve seen cable news but yeah I do remember the coming up in the news advertising. It was click baity to get you to watch their channel news. The world is still fucked not sure if it’s getting worse or I’m just more aware. The information world has shrunk which puts everything out there for everyone to see.

Connected world. You hear everything that happens anywhere and unconciously think its happening right around you.
I met people back when the local TV broadcaster had half the channels from Detroit who wouldn't even go to Prince George because it was 'just fucking like that... gangs, shootings, race riots, cops with submachine guns...
