* '''[[http://www.maxim.com/entertainment/tv/article/100-cable-channels-we-dont-want Maxim's 100 Cable Channels We Don't Want]]''', for essentially the same reasons as AOL Radio's "100 Worst Songs Ever" list (see [[{{Horrible/Music}} the horrible music subpage]]). Each channel's passage about it is completely uninformative and nondescript (i.e. The CW's passage reads "Name five CW shows. (This is a trick question. [[FanHater Your ability to answer will greatly affect your chances of being invited to our basketball picnic]].)"), but it goes even further on its qualifications for being SBIH, as the passages are uninformative and nondescript if ''the channel has a passage at all''; none of the channels between Creator/{{TBS}} ("Good for ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' reruns. That's it.") and [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] America ("''Series/DoctorWho'' isnít very good. [[FanHater Everyone is lying to you]]. Trust us.") have any passage whatsoever, not even elitist nonsense (and no, the "joke" for Creator/{{HBO}} Signature doesn't count, since that wasn't formatted in the same way as the passages), and the last passage is for the entry after BBC America, {{Showtime}} 2 (never mind that except for the most insane cable providers, Signature and Showtime 2, along with the Plex and Encore sub-channels always come free with the main networks). Since these were the only ones after the 30th entry, that leaves ''67'' entries - approximately '''''two thirds of the list''''' - without a passage, and towards the end they call foreign language networks 'useless', when fans of those channels and natives of said foreign areas would definitely argue otherwise. At least the aforementioned AOL Radio list actually put uninformative nonsense next to every entry instead of giving up after the 30th entry. The entire article reads more or less like the author originally wrote it as "30 Cable Channels We Don't Want" but was contractually obligated to list 100, and as such pulled the other 70 entries of out of their ass. There are also numerous other flaws that are worth mentioning, such as [[TheyJustDidntCare how lazy the list is]] and how the "jokes" sometimes come off as [[FanHater elitist remarks]] (like [=SoapNet=]'s passage, which says "Soap operas are perfect for people who donít know the Internet exists and/or canít afford a hobby."), but listing all the problems would practically warrant a page of its own.[[/folder]]

* [=RainFurrest=] is one of the most popular [[FurryFandom furry]] conventions on the west coast, based out of Seattle. However, the 2015 iteration deserves mention here. The convention was plagued from the get-go with [[RuleofCautiousEditingJudgement characters too unsavory to realistically be described here]], openly wearing all forms of fetish gear they were into, with one (in)famous person proclaiming "[=RainFurrest=] is a fetish con" to anyone who asked about it. It spiraled down from there, with plumbers on constant call due to [[{{Squick}} "Used Objects"]] being flushed down, the hot tub closed off halfway through the con, and the fire department being called twice. And someone [[TooDumbToLive even tried to remove the smoke detector in his room, nearly getting the entire con booted halfway through.]]\\

* Haribo released a sugar-free version of their famous Gummy Bears, but despite the warnings on the packaging, people still had horrible experiences with it. The product either caused heavy diarrhea or flatulence, sometimes even PottyFailure, due to it containing maltitol, a sugar substitute that the human body cannot digest properly. If some of the reviews are true, then it even caused hospitalization. The only positive thing is that it works as an impressive colon cleanser and weight loss treatment. You can watch professional stunt eater L.A. Beast eat an entire 5-pound bag of it to predictable results [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMjgaa5j_LE here]]. It also led to many [[http://www.amazon.com/Haribo-Gummi-Bears-Sugar-Free/product-reviews/B000EVQWKC/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_one?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0 hilarious Amazon reviews]].

* The New York City restaurant [[http://boingboing.net/2012/04/09/headed-to-new-york-watch-out.html Nello,]] aside from the [[http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/14/dining/reviews/14rest.html?_r=2& atrocious food]] and [[http://www.nychealthratings.com/nycrestapp/restaurantlanding/1/Upper%20East%20Side/14508/ numerous health violations]] has gained a reputation for being an utter rip off. For example, an appetizer salad costs $60, a steak costs $750, even the pasta costs $275! How? There are hidden prices; on top of a 20% gratuity, the prices of the specials are never disclosed. The only reason this place exists is to scam people into thinking they are a Madison Avenue high dining experience, when really they just an excuse to prey upon the rich and gullible. Also, did we mention coffee refills are $12 and water is $15?
* If you're from Toronto, you've no doubt learned to avoid the blatant tourist trap known as [[http://www.thestar.com/business/article/1218229--captain-john-s-restaurant-could-be-toronto-waterfront-fixture-for-years-to-come Captain John's]]. A sub par seafood eatery located on a rusting cruise ship, the restaurant, in addition to food described as mediocre at best and a dated, stale atmosphere, has been criticized for being an eyesore upon the city's harbourfront. The restaurant closed in 2012 after the owner was unable to pay $500,000 in back taxes, which forced the health department to shut the place down since they were unable to [[{{Squick}} sanitize the dishes and wash their hands]]. Sad, considering that the place was considered quite good when it first opened, but quickly degenerated due to financial problems (the owner never being fully compensated by the city from losing a ship in a ferry collision) and [[TheArtifact not being able]] to catch up with the city's growing culinary diversity. The ship was finally towed away at the end of May 2015.
