Anti-recommendations?

Are there any web services that try to give the worst recommendations possible? For example, if you list your favorite bands it gives you music that has absolutely nothing to do with them. Or if it sees your newsfeed it shows news that are of the least interest/relevance to you. Could be a neat way ...

Re: Corona Virus: will we all die?

I think a couple of thousands will die but hundreds of millions will suffer from stress caused by the panic, and the total human lifespan reduced by that stress will be much higher compared to the deaths. The main danger here isn't getting sick but letting the virus damage your mental wellbeing.

Re: Free Will does not exist

If free will doesn't exist, no one made any choices.
If free will does exist, believers made the right choice and non-believers made the wrong choice.
Therefore believing in free will is preferable.
