no politics Is anyone else getting a lot of scam texts?

464 Upvotes

Recently I’ve been getting a lot of what I assume are scam text messages with a link to random websites (I haven’t clicked any of the links). At first they were for packages I wasn’t expecting, I received 3 texts today alone and the last 2 were along the lines of “I found this video of you online” I don’t know why this is happening I’ve only been getting them in the last couple weeks

no politics Does anyone remember these Japanese gameshows that used to air on ABC or SBS 4ish years years ago? I know this is a long long long long shot but here goes!

14 Upvotes

There used to be a block of Japanese game shows that would air back to back and they where really funny and I really need to find them. I think they where on at night

I managed to find one which is Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (MXC), it's really funny so you guys need to watch it.

Anyway the show i vaguely remember involved the cast competing and doing challenges (one involving mats over a swimming pool they had to run across, another one might have been karaoke).

One guy kept getting 2nd to the best guy though so they joked he was the uncrowned prince. Maybe one of the names was Hanada or Kanada.

Sorry this topic is such a mess, my brain just blurts stuff out.

Edit : I found it, it was called G wars. Apparently it was 8 years ago, i feel old now. I'm trying to find proper videos of it, i guess it wasn't very popular.
