I’m tempted to send bizarre and/or amazing videos to strangers.June 8, 2017 8:46 am at 8:46 am #1291818
Depends on who the strangers are and what you mean by “bizarre and/or amazing” (R4nd0m3x).
I do that already on a more general platform to select strangers. Mostly the videos are of cute animals.
-The puppy eating a banana with two front paws, sitting up like a human.
-The cat swatting at a German Shepherd, who *SPOILER* then starts licking his face.
-The puppies going around in a circle as they eat sharing one round dish of food, as if they’re on some conveyor belt.June 8, 2017 8:46 am at 8:46 am #1291822ready nowParticipant
please delete this thread, thanks.

Maybe you can post all your bizarre things here in the coffee room?June 8, 2017 9:39 am at 9:39 am #1291940YW Moderator-29 👨💻Moderator
Just don’t send it to any livestock in the UKJune 8, 2017 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1292223
Any non-livestock in the UK, you mean. I wondered if you’d heard about that…
(You can tell that person the name they think is me is actually my brother.
Also, I hope that’s not why they don’t post anymore.)June 8, 2017 7:41 pm at 7:41 pm #1292239
Maybe you can post all your bizarre things here in the coffee room?
Not all of them are CR-approvable. Also, I like the anonymous factor (which will be
just slightly ruined if any of them has seen this thread, but that seems unlikely).
I’ll try to post something here, though.June 8, 2017 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #1292321
Is the UK livestock thingy an inside joke in the CR?June 9, 2017 7:51 am at 7:51 am #1292364
No.June 9, 2017 8:17 am at 8:17 am #1292365
What I tried to post wasn’t approved, and it was a video that teaches how to
play a board game, so you can imagine how far I’d get with… whatever else.
Nah, that was me. Just didn’t have the time to check it out. Although I can’t say I disagree with the probability…June 9, 2017 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #1292598
Would you have to watch the whole thing before approving it?
depends who posted itJune 10, 2017 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #1292597
Will you please explain why you wouldn’t want to send bizarre videos to livestock or non-livestock in the UK?
I thought maybe there was a video of British cows watching weird videos out there. 💻🐄🐄🐄
Or was it just a thing that was made up by Mod-29 for fun? 🎉June 10, 2017 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #1292611

The livestock thing is from the CR, but is not an in-joke.June 11, 2017 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1292998
I’d really like an answer to the color question.June 11, 2017 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #1293000
If you don’t have 39/26 minutes, what about “Near and Far Review – with Tom Vasel” (20/14m)?

(Note: The longer video explains the game in a manner more suited to
the inexperienced (or anyone, really), and has better lighting and closer
shots in which the game’s components look a lot better.)July 14, 2017 12:47 am at 12:47 am #1317596

Yesterday I shared a video of a puppy boxing one of those inflatable punching things for kids, the kind that’s like a beach ball with a weight on the bottom so it flings back.January 31, 2018 6:16 am at 6:16 am #1460338
I just watched an amazingly powerful video of a guy who went an entire week without talking to anyone, who then met an older man who, like many of today’s elders, normally goes weeks without talking to a human being…
The video was to raise awareness about our forging connections with are older neighbors.July 5, 2018 7:46 am at 7:46 am #1552638

This has got to be the weirdest thread I’ve ever read in the Coffee Room.
Lightbrite – a good point. Some social scientists are saying that we now have an epidemic of loneliness in this country, and it’s really serious among older people. Let’s pay more attention to our elders. After all, we all hope to be elderly ourselves one day.

I continue to note potential material and targets,
but I still haven’t sent anything to anyone.

By now, I’ve sent some things to a very limited group. I wasn’t able
to see the reactions, if any, to the point when I stepped it up a bit.

Looks like I also forgot to post in proper chronological order;
it’s a common effect of time travel jet lag.
