I'm a sucker for pomeranians

The second video should have showed us his dogs.

I am betting the compliments guy is very good looking.

Big Mike said...

That first video put me right off. Compliment a woman's outfit at work, and you'll find yourself in HR defending yourself against an EEO complaint faster than shit.

gspencer said...

"That's a great outfit"

"Thank you"

"Do you have panties to match?"

"How dare you"

traditionalguy said...

Wow. I loved all those people being genuine and nice to others. America is worth saving in fly over land.

Bill Peschel said...

The snowboarding one was magical. I could watch an entire run like that.

Rory said...

Talk to me nicely on the street, and I'll be very suspicious. Compliment my dog, and I'll give you half an hour.

I was surprised at the reaction to the penguin. Nobody in the boat was smiling or laughing. Guess when you get to know Penguins, they're real bastards.

rcocean said...

Snowboarding one was good.

dbp said...

The snowboarding really brought back the magic of nighttime snow skiing. It really shouldn't be more quiet than daytime skiing, but really it seems like it is, especially in the trees.

Can we go back to dissecting F. Scott Fitzgerald?? It was tedious too, but it felt like learning.

robother said...

That sneaky dog is up to no good. Or perhaps its just his version of a closeted coping mechanism, in which case, I apologize for my hydrophobia.

Darrell said...

Want to see what I had for lunch?
Of course you don't.

CJinPA said...

Weak start but turned into a solid offering as usual.

People recording themselves being kind and signaling to others "Be more like me" is a selfish con. Be kind when you have nothing to gain and you'll contribute something to humanity.

"Don't families suck? Fight oppressive traditions and drink alone on Thanksgiving" is a tired message that feeds the destructive abandonment of family and any relative with lived experience. Crazy uncles built the society you now take for granted.

The rest are delightful.

For some reason, these Tik Tok videos fail to load on my Windows 10 laptop with Chrome browser. Not complaining, just stating. Wonder why?

readering said...

I have same problem. I have to watch on phone. I like 'em all.

Rick.T. said...

How many does one have to watch in order to form an opinion about favorites?

Darrell said...

Tik Toks work with Vista Pro and my Avast browser.
Suckers!

daskol said...

That is a very neurotic dog. His face, up close, was heartbreaking.

madAsHell said...

I'm calling this a cafe!!

I'm seeing on Facebook that I can make a donation to Planned Parenthood Action Fund in the name of Mike Pence.

I mean.....I get it. It's kinda funny, but do people really find it as a compelling argument to open their wallets?? It seems so petty.

Rusty said...

I do believe I've found a new way to annoy people. Thanks Althouse!

alanc709 said...

They all seem phony to me. Who goes out of their way to video themselves complimenting people? Is he some Queer Eye wannabe?

Howard said...

That's the Spirit, alanc! Way to take one for the team.

MadisonMan said...

I don't want to be in someone else's video.

Howard said...

Ok, Boomie

gilbar said...

the moral is: Dogs are Good!

Snowboarding was ruined by the music.

A serious tiktok article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2019/11/26/year-old-posted-tiktok-about-chinas-detention-camps-her-account-was-suspended/

Seeing Red said...

Via Insty:

ANTISOCIAL MEDIA: TikTok Blocks Teen Who Posted About China’s Detention Camps. “The app faced renewed questions about whether it censors material after it removed an American’s video about Muslims in China.”

Night Owl said...

In regards to the creeping dog video, I think the dog is freaked out by the camera. I can never get videos of my dog acting cute because she freezes up as soon as I point a camera at her.

Marc said...

This is the first time I've already seen TTs that Althouse has included here-- the snowboarding one, the little kid with his dad, the penguin.

The newest meme/trope/whatever it's called that I've seen involves the set-up 'I've heard that if you give your dog an egg, it knows the egg'll break if it closes its jaws too hard'. (Usually the dog carries off the egg and then lets it fall, whereupon the egg breaks or it doesn't.) Just watched a woman give her cat an egg; it looked at it and then knocked it off the counter, observing the fall and splatter. Made me smile.
