Are you amused by Related?

Asked by BellaB (6451points) December 13th, 2016

I haven’t been here very long but I’ve already come to appreciate the Related column and missed it when it disappeared.

This combo recently came up for me:

—Spaghetti and meatballs for breakfast. Odd, you say? Name an odd meal that you’ve had for breakfast?

Can a bearded dragon eat mealworms?

I’m babysitting- How do I help this baby not spit up so much?

When does a child start using cutlery?—

Does what you see in Related ever make you laugh/smile/giggle? Do you go and read the old threads? Do you post in them?

(bring good combos back here if you run into some)

Thanks @BellaB for pointing out an endless source of fun. Indeed it’s not just that some questions are hilarious, it’s also that some of the “related” threads have absolutely nothing to see with what they’re supposed to be related to.

@Sneki95 Where do lobsters live? :)))

@olivier5 – I like to try and guess how the software makes some of the connections. What words triggered the ’‘related’’ label.

BellaB's avatar

And then there are the offerings from ‘related on jelly’

one question is apparently related to:

Could you tell me something about wheals?

What should you do when your in bed sick?

Tell me three things that piss you off?

Tell me something about ukrainian conflict?

___

those 4 questions seem to have nothing in common.

@BellaB I’ve been laughing at some of these “relateds” for years. The keyword links are often really sketchy.
