Here’s some great news just in time for the weekend: someone’s created a site that makes browsing through Netflix so much easier.

Reddit user CrazedEli, aka Ville Salminen, announced his creation Flixable on the r/television subreddit Friday. It’s basically a search engine for Netflix and it’s worth checking out; it could save you hours of wasted time.
Flixable shows what’s popular, what’s original, and what’s leaving Netflix. Users can browse by genre and IMDb rating, and filter their searches based on release date. 
Salminen said he built the site as a hobby to learn more about programming. He noticed that many Netflix users on Reddit were frustrated by the streaming service’s unintuitive browsing options, pointing to one popular complaint in particular.
“That confirmed my suspicions that there’s still demand for a site like Flixable,” he said. 
Between comedy specials, documentaries, and original series, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of content available on Netflix. “With Flixable, I had one aim,” Salminen said. “To build a site that would make it easier for Netflix subscribers to choose what to watch on a movie night.” 
Salminen says he created AllFlicks, a similar Netflix browsing site, in 2014. After it became “surprisingly popular” he sold it to Reelgood in November 2017. “As I had a kind of dream of rebuilding AllFlicks from scratch, I was able to do that now – with more time on hand,” Salminen says.  
Salminen says he’s in talks with Hulu’s representative about working on a similar site for the streaming service. As of now, Flixable only catalogues what’s available on Netflix in the United States, but he plans on expanding it to include other countries as well. 
Salminen says, “It’s starting to seem that I should start reconsidering my day job.”

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
