    Finally deleted my FB today.

    I work in a public school system.

    A seemingly innocent comment implying that at times some kids act like "jerks" (yes, that is the harshest word used, and no kids or even groups of kids were identified) led to a FB "friend" complaining to my bosses, so now I need to meet with HR.

    Fuck all of that.

    I deleted my account. Its just not worth it..

    The only thing I'm gonna miss is the Watch tab which regularly supplied me with videos of fight scenes from movies, clips from nonsense clip shows like Ridiculousness, classic sitcom bits, TPB, Letterkenny, Top Gear (British cast and not produced by amazon), etc..

    Happy to finally cut the ties from my one and only social media outlet (this place doesn't count IMO). But honestly I will miss the curated video clips that help me fill random 5-15 min of downtime.

    How do I replace that aspect? What service can provide me with recommended short video clips based on my "likes"?

    Pornhub recommendations are already spot on. This isn't what I'm asking, I need that level of service for comedy and action clips

    Technically, it definitely is. But, TGR headquarters doesn't have a supercomputer pointed at your brain that's actively trying to keep you engaged and curating the content you see, so it's definitely a different animal.

    Reddit but that's it's own version of crack. I had to cut that out cold turkey as it became too much of a timesuck, so started popping back in here after a few years away. Engaging but not the black hole you can get sucked into on Reddit, at least for me.

    Suggestion above is spot on. Crack! The smokeable variety that is. For ass crack, you already got pronhub dialed in.

    Watch one of each of the vids you mentioned on YouTube and it will aggressively take care of the rest.

    When you meet with HR wear a "Fuck the Zuck" t-shirt.

    Agreed. Kids are assholes sometimes.

    Glad you have union behind you.

    this really is the answer. Youtube is a fine rabbit-hole substitute for FB.

    YouTube’s algorithm is either kinda scary good, or pisses me off. Like:
    “God dammit you showed a perfect mayfly dun at the beginning of the video, and then you had your client nymph! Fuck off, you shithook guide asshole.”
    “Why did you suggest that video? I don’t fucking nymph.” “Fucking youtube.”
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    Do something productive. Our fucking phones are disgustingly addictive. I hate it. I CANNOT quit reddit no matter how hard I try. Open to tips/suggestions.

    Deleted facebook years ago and it's the best. That also means no whatsapp, instagram, messenger, or anything else Zuck uses to make money off of me. Feelsgoodman.


    But man I know exactly what you're talking about here. My wife is a teacher and got "busted" for a 12 year old picture of her at a halloween party with someone dressed in what today would be considered inappropriate. You can figure it out. She wasn't even wearing anything questionable it was just the person in the photo with her. Anyway there was an active campaign to get her fired by anonymous people, even one of those change.org petitions. And if you ever met my wife you'd know how ridiculous this is, she's like the nicest person ever to everyone. I had to send emails around citing privacy laws and terms of service violations to get things fixed on a google search.

    Cancel culture fucking sucks man.

    Any teacher should not do anything online, period. Not even under an alias. The kids will find it, and they and their parents can be insane thinking they are on some great crusade. No FB, no twitter, no instagram, nothing. It's not even a loss of quality of life without these things, anyway.

    Yeah! Time to give the Zuck the middle finger. Just like Roger Waters. Yes. That Roger Waters. Dude is the freaking MAN for what he just did:



    Now that professional life is so intertwined with social media, we should all opt out of this dystopian bull. What happened to you is some serious bullcrap, OP. You did the right thing. Just like we learned from the movie, War Games, sometimes the only winning move is not to play.

    Well yeah, but don't think that if the TGR Overloads ever fix the fucking box fan they won't try it.....

    Why not just scrub your account of all photos and posts and keep it to keep up with the random facebook groups/people you like. I havent posted anything on my FB since 2006 when it required a .edu email to sign up. I still use it to find out about goings-on from my local MTB trail org. Maybe im doing it wrong? IDK. I have an account with every social media thing available, but less than 5 posts on any of them. And none of them under my actual name.

    I have felt lighter since deleting Facebook. Especially around the neck and shoulders.
    No longer stuck.

    Now is the winter of our discontent
    Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
    And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house
    In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

    Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths;
    Our bruised arms hung up for monuments;
    Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings,
    Our dreadful marches to delightful measures.
    Grim-visaged war hath smooth'd his wrinkled front;
    And now, instead of mounting barbed steeds
    To fright the souls of fearful adversaries,
    He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber
    To the lascivious pleasing of a lute.
