No clue why this was recommended to me. I watched it, it's adorable. Spoiler alert: the baby has no reaction to flying other than to eat a fall asleep.

Years ago I posted a video that my dad took of me flying an rc plane. I crashed it. I posted it so I could share my idiocy with a few friends. Recently the algorithm has made the video show up to a bunch of people.

I looked at the comments and well, the cesspool of the internet was apparently who the algorithm was designed for.

Subby, I watched that three times. So good. Thank you, and thank you algorithm.

This was recommended for me just now. Not as good, but definitely strange.

It's a fun genre.

I don't really get much weirdness recommended to me. I'm pretty milquetoast in my YouTube tastes, and I think the algorithm has given up trying to change that.

I clicked on the link but quickly closed it as I suddenly got worried about what I was adding to my algorithm. What new strange videos will pop up in my recommended que now thanks to subby? There are videos that look interesting on youtube I won't select because I know if I do more will show up.

I have enough subs that the algorithm has a good idea of what I like.

The 'weirdest' video in my top 10 is:

I use YT mostly for workout videos so I get a lot of crap fad quick fix fat busters.

On the other hand, YT algorithm is how I first learned about The Dead South. 'In Hell I'll Be in Good Company' came up on my feed while I was... working out! At first I was like 'oh wtf is this?', then I heard the lyrics... more of this please! Now I think I know 100% of the lyrics in the discography.

I was introduced to the entire 'Games Done Quick' marathon's by the YT algorithm, and my favorite speedrunners Mecharichter and PJ (TheSuperSNES).

I believe I was trying to find a speed run for Battletoads after finding out running was a thing and it sent me this. I have never seen a game get broken so deliberately or hilariously.

Actually I discovered that I wasn't logged into my account so it didn't attach the video to my algorithm. Your idea would work as well. I wrote to youtube asking for filters so I could eliminate certain words to never see certain vids listed again. Example: "trump". They never responded.

This was the weirdest on my logged out vid algorithm.

Either chicks in skimpy bikinis (Kat something) or boring guys blowing things up (ordance lab?).  I don't want to watch either, but my youtube recommended feed is full of this crap.

Much more interesting are the "recently uploaded" clips, but those tend to get buried under cars, some influential jackass I don't care about, some police chases I don't care about, etc etc etc.

That is to say, I'm more interested in "recently uploaded" than "recommended", and "recently uploaded" tends to get buried 10-15 clicks down, if it shows up at all.

[YouTube video: Can You Really Just Go Online and Order a Wife from Some Other Country?]


As someone who watched that video out of curiosity because I majored in that kind of shiat in college (polisci), I found that video frankly biased because it never got into (made to 11:30 so maybe the dude mentions it in passing toward the end but he was running out of time) any examples of the same phenomenon outside of the US or outside of western culture, nevermind outmarrying vs. inmarrying as a general phenomenon beyond mail-order brides.

I got fed up when it framed the issue as conservative men matching up with liberated women when obviously it's more along the lines of people meeting in the middle on their idea of "traditional values" vis-a-vis the society they were raised in than political ideology.

/tl;dr, I'm not welcome on the pol tab
