As a film and television fan, aficionado and employee, I am sometimes dumbfounded by the insanity I see being made.

Like people actually paid money to make some of this?

I like horror and drama, but shock horror and drama are just over the top yuck.

But there is always an audience willing of you look hard enough.

Redditor Rockxzzy wanted to talk about the entertainment that has left us reeling. They asked:

"What's the most f**ked up movie/tv show you've seen?"

I tend to skip even the mentions of over the top nonsense films and tv. So I have nothing to add. But I'll read along.

Twisted

"Round the Twist."

"I was just talking about this show with my sister to confirm it wasn't just some childhood fever dream. That creepy lemon tree fox with its glassy eyes has stuck with me ever since."

Henry

"An older movie called Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. It’s an early role for Michael Rooker as Henry. It’s so freaking chilling. It’s not the most graphic or gory, but the violence is so casual. There is a family annihilation scene that I still can’t get out of my head and I haven’t seen it in 20 years. The fact that the main characters are watching their own crime on a camcorder they stole from the family is just somehow so much worse."

On VHS

I watched The Faces of Death on VHS when I was just a kid and some of that mess really scarred me for a long time."

"Traces of Death was another I watched a bunch of times. It had some really good Death Metal playing during the scenes and a narrator that would make really stupid jokes like 'Oh I bet that hurt' when a guy falls to his death."

“high tension”

"I watched a French film called Irreversible when I was doing a project on sub-sonic frequency and it's effect on human emotions. Even without the sub bass, that movie is f**ked up."

jbramm-audio

"So the tone thing is true? I remember reading somewhere back in the day they use a tone that can give people vertigo, but then I couldn't find that info again!"

Scampipants

"I got super high and went to watch a French horror movie called 'high tension' - was so glad when the girl I was with wanted to leave like 20 minutes in. Never watched the rest of it. And I’ve watched a ton of horror flicks since I was a little kid."

Tusk

"The movie where the guy gets kidnapped and turned into a walrus."

Strange_Phrase_784

"Yeah, that's Tusk, and it definitely is."

Rockxzzy

Who thinks up these stories? Like what kind of depraved mind... nevermind. I don't want to know.

Deep End

"Black Mirror: National Anthem. That show doesn’t even give you a chance to dip your foot into the pool, just launches you into the deep end on the very first episode."

ItStillIsntLupus

Poughkeepsie

"The Poughkeepsie Tapes It’s a Mockumentary about a serial killer who films all his murders on VHS tapes and you know it’s fake, but it feels too real and the thought the someone out there actually does this is what makes it so terrifying. If you have the chance please check it out."

GameBoy42069420

Shock Value

"The Human Centipede. Some things just don’t need to be seen."

2UnrequitedDreams

"I think the first movie was well done for the subject matter. The second one isn't really worth it, not even to watch it for curiosity shake. It was like they were only doing the movie to see how far they can push limits on violence and shock value. The story wasn't even that great. I never saw the 3rd one but heard it was pretty bad. Not sure about the gore or shock value but just downright stupid."

Inappropriate

"Idk the name, but my dad made me watch it at an excessively inappropriate age. What I remember is POWs being kept in a cage 99% underwater. Sometimes they would dunk the cage just for fun. They would pull out POWs and have them play Russian roulette. One guy lost but the hole in his head didn't kill him. Yeah. Forget that."

100LittleButterflies

Evil Gross

"I Saw The Devil. It's a good film. It's just insanely violent and gory."

So here is a list "no thanks" movies and shows I'll be glad to skip.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
