People Break Down Which Modern Trends They Absolutely Hate

You know what would be great?

If "family influencers" didn't exist. I don't know what people get out of watching people do their shopping and raise their kids, but it sounds boring as hell. Oh, and did I mention that the children have pretty much no privacy from the moment they're born? Yeah... that'll be a treat for them to comprehend when they're older.

But there are a host of other things out there that are just as annoying.


People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor RAZOR314 asked the online community:

"What modern trend do you absolutely hate?"

"News agencies writing articles..."

"News agencies writing articles about "all these people are saying X" when it's just a few random people on Twitter, and generally the trend of amplifying fringe theories, beliefs, conspiracies, etc..."

I think one of the unfortunate developments in the modern media landscape is the obsession with Twitter.

I think it really exacerbates some current issues of representation in the media.

"I hate these videos..."

"I hate those videos with a split screen and something interesting is happening on one half, while an 'influencer' is literally just watching on the other half."

"I do not give a single f*ck about the influencer. I just want to see the thing on the other side. You know, the thing worth reacting to."

Penguigo

So true.

They can't create worthwhile content so they "react" to the worthwhile content.

"People recording..."

"People recording when they should be helping."

Reddit

Sometimes recording does help — look at all the instances of police brutality that have made national headlines — but it's not when people are recording for likes, views, clout etc...

"The abundance..."

"The abundance of unskippable ads on videos. I 100% guarantee I will actively try to not buy your product if you're interrupting what little precious time I have to watch something."

Goatiac

Yes, it makes me so angry.

Stop wasting my time.

I will click out of something so fast.

"Corporations..."

"Corporations buying single family homes and turning them into rentals."

Reddit

And people wonder why there's a housing crisis.

"All controls..."

"All controls in a car being through a touch screen."

"For driving safety I wanna keep my eyes on the road, and want to find controls (like window wipers, radio by touch. With a touch screen, I have to look to see if I am touching the right place on the screen for the control I want."

u233

Yes! It's an unnecessary design change, honestly more trouble than it's worth.

"The fact..."

"The fact that EVERYTHING is a f*cking ad."

There are many ways to get around that and you can learn about it in my new book How to get rid of ads (free with your Amazon Audible trial).

"Everything nowadays..."

"Subscription services. Everything nowadays is being turned into a monthly bill."

TutuKitten

It's awful. And everything is so expensive. Why bother having all these subscriptions in the first place, right?

"The abundance..."

"The abundance of people trying to be influencers/streamers, while the majority of them are about as interesting as a boil."

To be honest, most people would rather watch the boil.

Frustrated yet?

We live in a pretty cool world. It'd just be better if most of this stuff didn't exist.

Have some suggestions of your own? Feel free to tell us more in the comments below!

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

Life is full of mysteries. And while we seem to be cognizant of many of life's miracles, it's obvious there is still much to discover within the vastness of our existence.

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument
Soundtrap/Reddit

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
