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

[rebelmouse-image 18351740 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18978476 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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?!

[rebelmouse-image 18978477 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
