    [–] I found an old pound coin, I know a lot of them were fake but I've never seen one so blatant Magnets 1 points ago in CasualUK

    I remember a few news articles from a few years ago where gangs were caught faking them. It really must be worth it because they can produce such high volume.

    Actually getting them in to circulation is probably the difficult part

    [–] The girl that GrossGore "Sexually Abused" btw Magnets 1 points ago in LivestreamFail

    it doesn't embed properly you need to follow the link

    [–] Destiny reacts to Grossgore's excuse Magnets 4 points ago in LivestreamFail

    it's easy to argue against someone who isn't present during the argument. You win every time

    [–] Curb your Capitalism - Banksy Magnets 1 points ago in MemeYourEnthusiasm

    When they remove it from the wall there is no power cable so this thing was battery powered and lasted 12 years and worked perfectly - no rust no stuttering, it didn't fail.

    It's way more likely a publicity stunt than real

    When destiny pretends he doesn't remember he acted like an edgelord on the internet for 5 years

    [–] How Much MONEY Do Twitch Streamers REALLY Make? (Inside Look from a Top Streamer) Magnets 1 points ago in videos

    What's the appeal of watching some random guy play fortnite with his friends for 3+ hours a day?

    It's not a random guy. It's like how people will watch Jeremy Clarkson present Topgear but probably would not watch him present a show about politics. People watch the presenter as much as they watch the game.

    Reasons for watching someone else play a game? They are probably better at it than you - you can learn. It's less effort to watch someone else play but can be rewarding to watch it live. Interacting with twitch chat/mob mentality. The next best thing to playing a game is watching a game.

    People find different things entertaining in the same way they hold different opinions on politics.

    [–] Twitch offering a banned streamer (Vexxed) partnership to stream on their site Magnets 1 points ago in LivestreamFail

    It's not just that, he was banned prior for dressing up as a terrorist and dancing to ISIS music.

    [–] Revamping the Quarantine Function Magnets 0 points ago in announcements

    as there are some things that are either verifiable or falsifiable and not seriously up for debate

    What about things like flatearthers? It may not be as offensive as other deniers but it's a hoax and complete quackery

    [–] [META] UKpolitics one of the top subreddits for downvoted comments Magnets -5 points ago in ukpolitics

    No doubt there are organised groups but I really doubt they make a significant dent.

    People see it more as a tool to push their ideas, you don't even need to tell people to just downvote (hide) things they disagree with or upvote things they agree with, it's basic instinct.

    It's crowdsourced political campaigning

    [–] [META] UKpolitics one of the top subreddits for downvoted comments Magnets 5 points ago in ukpolitics

    Another way of looking at it is that this sub is among the most effective at self-policing and removing trouble from sight. Bet the Russians hate us.

    Except the majority of people are getting downvoted simply because other disagree
