    So this punk has a video channel where he posts videos of tasering a dead rat, promoting eating Tide pods, and a man committing suicide by hanging.

    He has over 16 million subscribers!!! All of that pales next to the real scandal, Youtube pays him over a million dollars a month in advertising fees because so many watch him vomit that sh!t.

    Youtube and social media sensationalize the idiots.

    I don't think the world is going crazy. I think some with mental illness are finding each other on the web right in front of the rest of us. The very abnormal no longer have to hide their abnormality. They set up social media groups and find each other, and legitimize and validate each others views, until they act on them. I remember watching some serial killer FBI show once where they said that the profile of serial killers and sociopaths often includes strange childhood behaviors with dead animals initially and then later, with killing animals. I truly believe that 30 years ago, a significant portion of those people would be forced to keep their issues hidden and would not act, because they felt alone in their views, and had social and/or religious structure around them basically forcing or reinforcing "normalcy". Now, they can find each other on the web and they don't feel so abnormal any more.

    This guy is likely just a greedy guy trying to beat the other idiots to get views. And some messed up kid out there is watching that dead rat and thinking "that is just like the dreams I have been having".........

    My firm belief as that once any society 'advances' to the point where stupid people are prevented from dying, that society will genetically deteriorate to the point of its own extinction.

    Yep. we're doomed.

    What's going on in our world today really scares the bejesus out of me. Things have gone downhill so fast over the past 10 years and it's increasing at an increasing rate. I hate to think what kind of world my grandkids are going to inherit.

    Apparently you missed the one where the guy sprays alcohol on his arm pit to shave his pits and then lights it or the other one where his side kick spray his chest to shave his hair and lights it, laughed for 5 minutes that people can be that stupid!! Tried finding them again but they must have taken then down
