I love a good scary movie, and not just because they're good for you. If you're looking for a thriller or horror fix on Netflix, these are the movies currently available on the service that are the most terrifying. Can you handle them?
You've subscribed to their YouTube channel, you've smashed that like button countless times, and maybe you've even donated some cash to their Patreon. Still, you have to listen to the same exact video intro all YouTubers use for some reason every single time. Behold, two hotkeys that will save you from having to hear "Hey, what's up guys?" ever again.
About a year ago, we started binge watching a single show at a time at my house. We typically pick something with at least four or five seasons, and then whenever we're looking to "watch something" the answer is always the next episode of that show. Yes, we stray from it to catch new episodes of other programs, but having that "one program" helps eliminate the need to scroll through television offerings and suggestions to find something when we're really just looking for something to play in the background.

YouTube intentionally makes it easy for you to fall into a rabbit hole watching videos. Sure, you came to watch one cute puppy video, but 5 hours later you're still clicking through them because man, puppies are cute and it would be a tragedy to miss out on the perfect video.
If you're a Netflix junkie, you know the drill by now: you come home from work, kick off your shoes, decant that red you've been saving all week, and fire up Netflix. You then spend the next 45 minutes scanning through every single movie or TV show on the service to make sure you haven't missed anything that's a better candidate than that which you have already scrolled past.
Android: If you're tired of suffering through annoying YouTube ads, the company's YouTube Red subscription is a solid option. Unfortunately, it also costs $10 a month. If you don't feel like paying and/or don't require access to YouTube Red's exclusive content, there's another ad-free YouTube player for Android you can get - for free.
A few years ago I moved across the country, a time zone away from my family and most of my friends. Moving across the country comes with a number of challenges, but the biggest of those ended up being the whole friends thing.
