There are some days like today where I feel like Henry Hill at the end of Goodfellas running around trying to get things done.

I'm telling you, TikTok has some good content. Once the algorithm figures out that you're not a teen anyway.

My GF has been addicted to it for the last month and she started by just doing the #foryou stuff and it's all the same horsefeathers. The more concise content is really good, but the general wannabe influencers using the same audio content for their videos drives me nuts. If I have to hear "How you like THAT!?!" or "Don't be suspicious, don't be suspicious" or that horsefeathering irish dubstep jig one more time I'm throwing myself out a window.

Or "Things in my apartment that just make SENSE! This is my french press, oh my God you guys, coffee is the best!"

But like you said, once you drill down into the specific categories that interest you, there's good stuff.

The only things I'm drilling are 2x4s and ladies. Who's with me?

Yeah, I'm definitely not using it in the same way as a lot of people. One of my favorite accounts is a home inspector showing crazy horsefeathers he finds on inspections. Or a hollywood prop guy talking about how they make certain things for movies and tv shows.

Since the politics thread is focused on important issues, I'll just post this here:

(it's quite rare for Belgian politics to make positive headlines)
