Irritated People Share The Biggest Unresolved Scandals The World's Forgotten

Everyone loves a good, juicy scandal; especially if it doesn't involve us personally. This way we can just watch and comment from afar. Life is fraught with scandal. You don't have to be a person of notoriety either but it's the scandals that reach the public spotlight we can't help but be addicted to. Every year there is some twisted event that has more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel. And half the time what ends up most aggravating is the never ending cliffhanger!

Redditor \EyYoDasGayMane was dying to know... What is the biggest unresolved scandal the world collectively forgot about? O.J? JonBenet? Russia?! We may never know.

GET THAT CREDIT IN CHECK...

Equifax lost the personal data of almost every single adult. This is data we didn't give them permission to access.

They are still in business.

SHOW ME THE $$$!!!

About 10 years ago two men with Japanese passports were caught trying to smuggle $134 billion in forged bearer bonds into Switzerland in the trunk of their car! They were caught by Italian police and we still don't know anything about who they were, where the bonds came from or why they were being smuggled.

WHERE IS THE JUSTICE BAYER?

The pharmaceutical giant Bayer sold a drug for hemophiliacs that ended being contaminated with HIV. Once learning of the contamination, instead of ceasing sales entirely, the company choose to only discontinue the drug in the US (where the evidence of the contamination and associated deaths had come from) and proceeded to market the product in Asia and Latin America. Many patients contracted HIV and ultimately died of AIDS because of this decision. To my knowledge, no one from Bayer has ever been prosecuted.

TRILLIONS OF QUESTIONS....

Paradise papers!!! Trillions of dollars. All over the news for a couple of days, then nothing. Haven't heard a peep about it since.

SPEAK UP TOM CRUISE!!

All deaths related to Scientology.

THAT'S WHY I TAKE ADVIL...

The 1982 Tylenol Cyanide poisonings that killed several innocent consumers and put manufacturer Johnson & Johnson in crisis mode. Their handling of the aftermath is considered a textbook example of competent crisis management. It led to the market introduction of a wide array of safety packaging. No arrests ever made.

THEM & RUSSIA...

ISIS buying Twitter ads.

rConspiracyIs4Shills

ISIS is still rather active on Twitter.

Just check the replies to tweets by Iraqi agencies (government, army, football, etc.). Scary amount of ISIS propaganda.

How does that happen? Does some terrorist all call Twitter and be like, yeah I'm a jihadist and I'd like to place an ad for new jihadists. And Twitter is all, please hold for the sales department.... WTF????

YOU'RE SHADY AMERICA...

When the American government paid internet companies to install internet all over the country in the 90s or something and they didn't actually do it all. Nobody really remembers it but it was one of the biggest scandals America has ever seen. Sorry for incorrectly spelling I'm bad and lazy. Also I totally forget what it was called. I'd love if someone remembered.

WHERE ARE THE GIRLS?!

What happened with the "Save our girls" thing? The African warlord kidnapping schoolgirls for, I forget what. He also did the comical thing about cleaning this teeth with some kind of stick on videos.

Also did Sean Hannity ever get waterboarded for charity?

The Boko Haram/Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping. 276 abducted, 112 still missing. A little over a hundred have been released, many probably dead.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
