Reporting mistakes can be important.

Wow, another disease that caused flu symptoms for 10 days but doesn't kill people.  I'll be concerned if I hear it caused birth defects.

Video that says "Don't play" autoplays.  So much for trigger warnings.

I used to have one of those soothing 'Sounds of the Rainforest' CDs.  Some idiot thought it would be clever to include the sound of a buzzing mosquito.  I couldn't listen to the CD any time of the year when there might actually be a mosquito around without breaking out into a sweat.  Which might have been the malaria the CD gave me.

Wait ... weren't the ladies the Honeybees? Or am I misremembering yet another thing from my childhood? In my defense, it's been 40 years or so since I've watched Gilligan's Island.
