cranky

Linkbait

I've had enough.

From now on, if I see a sub-headline like this: "Rob Hewitt was separated from his boat on a dive off the coast of New Zealand, what happened next will stun you." (Sydney Morning Herald) I will refuse to read the article. I know that "what happened next" will not stun, amaze, or astonish me, just as I know that photo#6 will not be hilarious or make my day. I don't know how Rob Hewitt survived three days adrift at sea, and unless he survived by being supported on the back of a white humpback whale while a flock of adele penguins brought him raw fish and bottles of fresh water, then I will lose interest in the story and close the tab before I reach the end.

I WILL NOT BE STUNNED.

When I go to a news site, I want news dammit.
