^I mean, the US version is obviously dramatized. There are idiots in the UK version as well, but they are less spectacular than in the US version.

That said... I don't necessarily think it's all faked. I was part of a recording for a similar show in Belgium (De Smaakpolitie). Mostly, what happened was the dude found something, told the crew, and then "found" it again. Of course, this is a show aimed for the EU market, not the USA, but still. I can believe some of the shit Ramsey finds in those kitchens.

Interesting. Still you'd have to be an idiot to let Gordon Ramsay into your kitchen if you know you aren't perfect.




Can you IMAGINE being engaged to someone this toxic? Holy shit.

Oh well, maybe they're in an open relationship, and all the more power to them, in that c-

"I'm also intrigued to see if you could attempt to steal me away from my fiance"

Nope, that woman is a piece of shit.

Note that it says "recommendation". Peer pressure in office jobs is (apparently) so high in Japan, I doubt any company will actually limit it to 4 days, and even then those 4 days will be 60 hours a week.

Sheesh, no wonder people are going hard on the Epstein conspiracy theories. Motherfucker named him, even.

Imagine seeing this on your job application.
I mean I get it, they want to diversify, but this is not the way man.

Imagine being an 18 year old American. You join the army, because you want to help defend the innocent, and to save the world from tyranny.

After a few months of bootcamp, you graduate. You go on your first deployment: straight into the sandbox, for a tour in Afghanistan. You feel as if you're doing good in the world. You're helping people, protecting them from horrible oppression.
And then, when on a regular patrol, your convoy gets hit by a massive IED, and your truck gets blown to smithereens. Your body too. Your legs are gone, as is your left arm. You have to spend the rest of your life in a wheelchair. An automated one, as you can't even push yourself forward. You spend years going through medical and physical rehab, just to be able to not need a live-in nurse 24/7.

You turn on the TV, and see that the US army is pulling out of Afghanistan. 2 weeks later, you see the Taliban back in power. 20 years of war down the drain. Your mind wanders back to that family that gave you tea when on patrol. You got into this war, that started when you weren't thinking about international politics, with high hopes to help people like them. You gave your limbs to protect those people, because it was the right thing to do.

And it's all for nothing. You're a crippled for the remainder of your life, and the world has nothing to show for it.

All for nothing.

Fuck, that was rough to read. Very well put, and there are definitely people like this unfortunately.

I've seen some interesting theories, like this was all a post-nut clarity thing from the CEO. Like, "Oh god, this is disgusting, get this out of here".

More logical, though, is that was likely a PR move to pressure the banks into changing their demands. As I understood, OnlyFans was pressured by major banks and credit card holder to ban porn, or else they would pull CC support. I can see it very much possible that OF then pulls this, to show the banks that it is a very, very stupid idea, and they will all lose a shitload of money.

Leaning more towards your theory. Was still a big gamble though. Would have been the perfect time to launch a competitor.
