Much more irritating are the YouTube ads

If your trust in external entities allows, AdBlock plus will sort that right out.

Even YouTube ads? Well, I'll try it and see...

I saw the other day in a YT comment that people complain about the many ads - apparently YouTube even puts them inside videos, and not just at the beginning. I never saw these because I download videos to watch, and the downloader doesn't download the ads.

 Grin 'quaint'

I'm on overkill and use both, not so much to block ads but because of rampant and flagrant privacy invasion. I haven't seen an ad in years. It did take a bit of fine-tuning not to get redirects on uBlock because of PB. Both of these are 'clean' - I check obsessively before I download anything.

If my parents hadn't spanked me as a child I might have done that Psychic thingo on Fiver and other such platforms  Evil It would be so damned easy. One born every minute.

So now we know why there are psychic charlatans on this planet: their parents failed to spank them. Of course, it is not necessarily too late. "Spank the Guru" will make for an interesting TV game show. Or theme for a YouTube channel. You drag the psychics into a game of Brockian ultra-cricket that they never foresaw, and all the predictions stop there and then. :-)
