TBS Likes is a strange place where anything goes. Like International Waters, or Christmas morning after the shine has worn off and the booze has kicked in. May the ugliness commence.

While you were asleep: Four Corners, Japan mass killing, iPhone 7 date known

Approx Reading Time-10Morning! What happened while you were asleep? Well, Four Corners shocked the nation, violence returned to a Floridian nightspot, and we know the release date for the iPhone 7.




Four Corners, QandA discuss mistreatment of kids in NT detention, gooses response from minister.

Last night, much of the conversation centred around a Four Corners segment which viscerally displayed the absence of care in our juvenile detention system.

Through the application of violence, sleep deprivation and humiliation of kids in care, it raised some prickly questions. This morning they were answered via a prepared statement from the Chief Minister of the state responsible for such widespread abuse.

Although, that being said:

The question now seems to be, how long have they known, and how long will it take for the Royal Commission to begin – and following its findings, how long until results will be enacted?


Gun violence returns to Floridian nightclub, two confirmed dead.

Once more we bring ourselves to our feet to stand with Florida, for once again an evening of revelry under disco light has ended in tragedy. Club Blu, in Fort Myers, FL holding a “teen-night” was the scene, and the bitter results of the actions of one, are two slain.

The attack was explained thusly:

While we may take solace in knowing that in the wider scheme of the things, the motivator may be different, the application and effects of the violence are not.

One of the two slain was Stef’an Strawder, 18, a rising basketball talent, and as we learn through the awful lessons of life, the largest tragedy is talent not fulfilled.


iPhone 7 launch date confirmed, radicals circle calendar, pack gear.

No, not those radicals. These ones. The iPhone 7 is almost upon us (and for those playing at home, the actual date is the week of September 12th, or September 16th), which for a wide cross section of gormless, albeit well-meaning fools, is indeed all.

As I’ve only recently bought my first iPhone (the others I scored through pity from my friends don’t count), I a) don’t get it, braving the cold streets of a bloodless city, when you have a bed to return to, and b) I’m also pissed off, as I got my 6S as recently as June.

Anyway, here’s what you’re set to receive, if you defeat the elements.

Mass killing via knife in Japan, 19 dead, 43 wounded.

What the fork is going on, world. Enough already. This morning’s news is so horrible, that I’m going back to bed after I type this.

The perpetrator, apparently an ex-employee of the care facility in Sagamihara (west of Tokyo), re-entered the building to enact such viciousness on the disabled patients of the facility. He later turned himself into police.


Be safe, yeah?
