Woman eaten by spider! Clickbait!2489

We have all seen them, and as intelligent human beings we all know what these types of headlines are doing, but have you ever been so tempted to click on them you couldn't help yourself?

Clickbait headlines are meant to grab your attention even and many don't deliver on the promise.

What are some you have found hard to resist? And why?

Donald Trump emails indicating he's done something outrageous as usual....and seeing it spells his name as "Donald Tump....."

@DansCartoons "Tump?" That's a bad mistake

I don't know if this fits into the same category but the ones I hate are those that seem to be directly written to me which causes me to open them only to find the usual mass-mailing tripe. I don't mean that they just include my name, but rather they speak directly to something I am thinking, working on, or looking for, at that moment. It is as if the writer knew what was happening in my life. The content, however, addresses nothing I am thinking, doing, or in need of.

The ones that get me are the ones with the headline too long so you have to see what's the rest of it.

I really hate the ones that just have pictures and you have to click 5 times to get to the end. I'm in Nepal and the internet isn't as fast as elsewhere sometimes. 5 clicks and over a minute to find out what's wrong with something or some secret to good health that ends up being something I already knew.

@FrugalTravelsNepal You don't want to waste time sifting through rubbish with limited internet.

If you can't tell me something in the subject line, it must not be worth reading.
I am using Google a lot less than I used to. They are too good at getting @Rev's attention when he least expects. Me too.
