Peeple was going to be a service where you... reviewed people. It came and went before it was born, generated unfathomable outrage, and is the topic of tonight's GeekNights. Mark my words: there will be dozens of services like peeple would have been in the nearing future, and you can not prevent them from existing. In the news, Volkswagen committed egregious crimes, and what they did is likely no less than a massive and widespread corporate conspiracy. Adobe updated and consolidated several of their phone apps. Also, Rym almost died in the Australian bush.Download MP3
Me on the Ruined Castle Rock in the Blue Mountains.
The reality is a ton of people would USE these sites even if they publicly decry them.
There's also these up near where I live -
Not pictured, Wild horse mountain, and Mount Mee which isn't really relevant but a good for terrible jokes.
Also Rym: Backup glasses.
One of the stories about them goes like this: Tibrogargan, the oldest of the mountains, was the father of all the glasshouse mountains(modern name, obvs) but for Beerwah, who is his wife. It's said Tibrogargan saw the rising sea, so he called his son Coonowrin to take himself and Beerwah to a safe place far away. He didn't bother, and Tibrogargan flew into a rage, seizing his nulla nulla and clubbing Coonowrin down and breaking his neck, before turning his back to him.
Oh, and about the "Truth License"? Turns out it's basically just a paid subscription that allows you to see all the comments, rather than just the positive ones that have been approved by the accountholder. Nobody can sign you up to the service, nobody can bomb your ratings(which are just how many people have recommended you), and regardless of truth license, nobody can make ratings about your personal, professional, or romantic details that appear without your permission. Which is not explicitly stated by the company to be a response to people like Mundane Matt and their usual antics(who were, funnily enough, pointed out as the reason a service like Peeple is a really bad idea), but even Ray Charles could see that connection.
I also don't watch any of those other guys, so...eh.
I couldn't find any other sources about the return of Peeple at the time that video was posted. Some articles have been posted since then, though. Here.
But fine, I'll drop it.
That said, I wouldn't pin it down to just South Park. A lot of "internet places" tend to feel that anyone who believes in something is trying to either scam you or sell you something. If you take a stand, either way, to some people you're just "string up trouble". It's an interesting companion to the kinda weird social apathy of NEET-types in Japan. Like, it's a reaction to being given up on: you ruin me, I ruin you. Kinda interesting in a way.
