Like the commercial, hate the website
Is there a more depressing site on the web than weather.com? It's not the weather- I expect it's usually accurate as weather forecasting sites go. It's the little stories that the site is always asking us to click on. Man, they are downers- "This woman died on her honeymoon," "Child's Final Tragic Moments," "Horror at Beach House- You Won't Believe It..."
I mean, what the hell? Why is Weather.com always trying to tickle our Morbid bone? I go to the site to see if I need an umbrella, not to find out if a blonde girl has been abducted and beheaded (yes, she has) or if a guy has been killed by a freak tidal wave (yes, he has.) This other crap? I'd rather read about the One Trick To Cut Your Car Insurance If You Live In Maryland (what a coincidence- I do!) or Why Doctors Hate This Man or Why The IRS Hates This Man (same man? Don't know...)
