    Default Things I won't watch

    Not afraid to watch many videos anymore. I've literally seen it all, the expected and unexpected, from terror killings to accidents.

    The only time I actually enjoy such videos is if it's one of those videos showing massive ordinances hitting terrorists. Even close up of such stuff likely doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    But there are things that I can't stand ever seeing, and I now just won't even watch at all.

    I won't watch any harmful animal videos. Don't care if it's a dog or a cat, a lizard... only thing acceptable is killing spiders in anyway possible!!

    I won't watch anything with children involved. Ever.

    I won't watch videos of injuries, even in the NFL. If it's someone getting their arm or leg broken, and it breaks in an awful manner or bends in a way it never should - they freak me out for some reason. Basketball, NFL or a video of a street fight that happens to catch it. Yek.

    As soon as I see "Cartel - along with revenge, or no mercy or something like that" - trust me, just don't ever open such things. Those guys are insane.

    Did I mention no animals? I literally can't watch such videos. And if those damn caged dogs commercials come on for like 10 minutes, instantly off it goes. Can't even watch that. Makes me want to open my own zoo and take in a few million of them.
    How do you catch a unique rabbit? Unique up on him! (was my Mom's favorite joke )

    I'm with you. I don't even watch the killing of bad guys, just gross. I like funny or educational.

    I refuse to watch anything else, if Bourne: Ultimatum is being screened.

    There's my favourite scene in that film: a Guardian reporter, Simon Ross, being assassinated at Waterloo Station (in the days when EuroStar services used Waterloo as a terminus, before the line was extended to St Pancras .. it dates the film, somewhat ! I can vouch for that definitely being Waterloo Station, shown in the film).

    I won't be drawn on whether such a fate is appropriate for Guardian reporters generally ! But it makes for great fiction in a film ....

    Any sort of mistreatment of animals just boils me... I can't stand it. I want to do the same to whatever worthless POS did to the critter. To think what selfless, non demanding, unconditional love and companionship a pet will give to someone, and then a person harms them? It's making me mad to think about just to type this, and I'm talking any critter, domesticated pet or a little critter in the wild. I won't watch these shows about the wild either where they prey on each other. I know that's the rule of law when it comes to nature, survival of the fittest, but I don't need to see it, and I don't understand why these documentarians feel as though they HAVE to show that EVERY TIME.

    I've been getting into the PBS special "Victoria" on Prime, and last night in Season II, episode 3, her cute little dog, Dash, passed away. I got a lump in my throat and had to hold back tears during the scene when she found him. Just brings back when I've lost a long time little furry partner. It hurts even years and years later.

    God I sound like a total softy...

    I will not watch any movie that promotes gays, trans, sexual deviants, libs, dems, communists, muslims and other assorted evil pieces of human shit. None of those are worth very more than an ant being stepped upon on the sidewalk. As each is nothing short of evil and wretched waste of space, IMHO.
    And not very far behind is about 20% of the illegals that the dem/libs are importing in to help keep them in power.
    Less than 20% of the remaining 80% are a positive and worthy addition to this nation.
    The others come from a nation that grows it population to be self-serving, basically corrupt and hardened individuals prone to graft , corruption,sexual perversions, rape, robbery, violence and criminality.
    As shows the FBI stats on the crimes they engage in once brought in by the AMERICA HATING DEMS/LIBS, IMHO.
    Dems are basically full blown traitors. nuff said..
