That's fucking stupid. If you're but-ass ugly and stupid at the same time, the two are evenly matched. Is that perfection? Jeez

Perfect harmony :D ...

One thing that annoys me is when coworkers mistake you tolerating them because you have to work with them for friendship

Screw it, I'm bored at work so I'm going to do a list of 5:

1. Companies that think it is acceptable to charge premium prices for guitars that look fucked up AND the people who pay stupid money for them. Sure it looks cool when you see a stratocaster where the paint is all chipped away, but the reason it is cool is because it tells a story. You should be able to say where and when all the major dents and scratches occured. "This is from when I threw it at the drummer for playing out of time" and so forth. To have something that has been meticulously crafted to be an exact replica of the wear on say Eric Clapton's guitar is to be playing a lie. Stop paying stupid money for fucked up looking stuff you cock munchers. Buy a guitar and earn it's wear.

2. People who pick up their dog shit in little bags and then throw the bags into a hedge. You made the effort to pick it up, THROW IT IN A CUNTING BIN.

3. People who vote for a particular party "because that's who my parents voted for". Think for your bloody self.

4. That Channel 4 advert for a program that makes the EU referendum out to be about Boris Johnson vs David Cameron. Its not a fucking game show, its an important political decision that will affect our future.

5. People that litter. They can fuck off and die as far as I'm concerned. Stop ruining nice places by dumping your shit everywhere you entitled fucking cunt.

People who are engrossed in their phones when they should be paying attention to their surroundings.

Yesterday a woman was stood pissing about on her phone in the entrance to the shop, blocking it off with her trolly. Not to the side of the entrance actually right in the way of the doors.

To be fair if I was a pickpocket I'd probably love it.

In order of annoyance:

#1 Anything poorly configured or designed

#2 People who walk too slow

#3 People who seem to make a point to disturb me while I am busy. Or people who let their kids do the same.

#4 The fact that so many things seem to be designed for people about 3 or 4 inches shorter than I am, even though I am of average height.

#5 People who only talk about other people.

#6 Lack of standardization. I recently bought a bike pump that came with 3 different adapters and none of them fit my bike. Why can't they all be the same?

#7 Culture used as an excuse for stupidity.

Post Re: 5 Things that annoy me. (A bit)

Only five? I have way more than that.

Well, I guess the top five are:

1. Emojis. Now I don't mind if you send me one or two every now and then. But when people respond to me with "LMAO TRUUUUEEE :twisted: :twisted: :lol: :lol: " I loose all my faith in humanity.

2. People who count out exact change. I used to work at a supermarket and I get wanting to use some change, but for some reason a lot of people are too stupid to have it ready beforehand.

3. Tuna fish. The smell makes me want to vomit.

4. Panhandlers. I got robbed twice by Panhandlers in France this past march when I refused to give them cash.

5. "Ironic" memes on Facebook. That needs to stop.

The hardest part is only picking 5... Here we go.

1. People who consistently defend the original (i.e. earliest) material of any given franchise as the best of that franchise or even "perfect". Sometimes I agree with them, but other times... just no. For example, as far as I'm concerned, Mega Man 2 for NES isn't the best Mega Man Classic game; I definitely prefer to give that distinction to Mega Man 4. I will give Mega Man 2 due credit, though; it effectively saved the series from becoming dead on arrival with the honestly mediocre Mega Man. History could repeat itself with the similarly mediocre (at best) Mighty No. 9, but somehow I doubt it... On that note, I actually don't like Mega Man Classic that much; my favorite Mega Man series is Mega Man Zero, with Mega Man X being a close second. Hell, one of the main characters in both of the latter series, Zero, is my current avatar!

2. People who consistently defend the newest material of any given franchise as the best or "perfect". I don't see this as often as the first one. Like the first one, sometimes I agree, but other times... Well, there are people who will unironically defend the tragically awful game that was Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). I have yet to see people do this for Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, on the other hand.

3. Creationists. Not much needs to be said here.

4. Memes. Mostly. I'm okay with maybe one or two if they're applied to some meaningful, humorous context, but when I have to deal with maybe 20 of them at once, I think that's ridiculous.

5. Sci-fi/fantasy writers not knowing what "dimension" means.

Honorable Mention: People who insist the main character of Mega Man X is named, simply, "X". His full name really is "Mega Man X"; the first game supports it, both in localized versions and in the original Japanese where he's named "Rockman X" instead, and I'm pretty sure X4 will agree as well. They shorten his name down to "X" for the sake of brevity; people don't want to type down/utter "Mega Man X" repeatedly, that could get tedious. This is in contrast with Zero; thanks to Mega Man Zero's title, there are people who actually think "Mega Man Zero" is his name, but unlike Mega Man X, there is nothing to support that other than the game's title, which is only done that way to unambiguously connect it with the rest of the franchise. His name is, has always been, and likely always will be, Zero… Unless you're playing Mega Man ZX, in which case, these guys' names become "Biometal Model X" and "Biometal Model Z", respectively; they become something completely different in that game, though it's the same continuity.

No offence but I think that the original post in this topic was way better ;)

It's because sequels usually just try to cash in on the original.


Things that annoy me? Myself. I can make myself annoyed by anything. *sigh*

Also. Politicians, right-wing and neo-liberals in particular.

Electric park brakes in cars.

Non-standard keyboard layouts on laptops and especially on full sized keyboards. Those that have "power off" button next to arrow keys are the worst!.

Proprietary software and closed standards. Everything should be open source.

Corporations and how the system makes it profitable and acceptable to bribe politicians (lobbying my arse)
Did you see that ludicrous display last night?

While true, sometimes they end up better than the original regardless. I'm more likely to recommend Sonic 3 & Knuckles or Sonic 2 to people instead of the original Sonic the Hedgehog.

I don't believe I've ever seen a laptop with the power button next to the arrow keys... That would be quite annoying...

It was actually a full sized keyboard and it was bloody annoying. Some laptops have Fn+s combination to put the laptop into sleep. And of course they put Fn key in random places.

edit: Damn I'm old. By full sized keyboard I mean an external keyboard you use with a desktop computer :)

2: Clinton supporters.

3: Stein supporters.

4: Johnson supporters.

5: People who don't vote.

Doesn't look like anyone can win here, then. :lol:
