I hate it when somebody is horribly mistaken over a simple thing that should be general knowledge or at least able to be determined with thought (CONIFERS are the softwoods, HARDWOODS are, well, the hardwoods. Dumbass.) but will argue with you incessantly on it anyways, and not be able to be convinced of simple facts no matter how many ways you say it (Politics and opinions don't count. SIMPLE things.)

I hate punks who try to pick fights with me for incredibly stupid reasons. Also the phrase "you wanna dance?", even when used in that context, still sounds really gay.

I hate it when people can never make up their minds, or when they can never change them as well.

I hate when there is uncertainty over a really big, potentially devastating issue. Either it's there or its not, I can handle that somehow. Perhaps-it-might-be-but-wait-maybe-its-not-although it-could-be uncertainty drives me nuts. Ugh.

I am mostly happy, just grumpy. That sounds like a contradiction but I make it work.

And bah, that's the second time today someone's said that. The first time today in person is what prompted that comment, although I admit that it wasn't totally unjustified on his part. Just over something stupid. Sometimes people need to back up and ask themselves if some things are really that big a deal to be worth getting worked up about.


I know, hypocrite right? Slightly.

Ah, never mind then. I did originally think you made it up, but then I googled it and it turns out that it's a real virus that does brick the computer. Wierd.

You sure its not your CPU dieing? WErent you the one with the loud opera/strange music that came as if from no where? I still think its your CPU dieing.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

No, I think that was Andrew Ryan. Or maybe Grazony.

I have a gripe with DVD movies, specifically the "dont steal our DVD" splash screen that you are FORCED to let play out everytime you pop the DVD into the machine, why do they feel it neccessary to tell us not to steal their product every freaking time all day and all night ??
If I went to buy a McD burger, and the one serving me went on and on telling me not to steal their burgers, and started explaining to me the McD copyright they have on their BBQ sauce, then Im pretty damn sure I would never go to that place again, so why the heck do we have to listen to that same song over and over and over and over again when popping in a DVD ?


When I was in video production class we were lectured on copyrights and all that jazz. So as a project a few of us edited together all the FBI and french copy warnings from the beginning of VHS movies and put it to the theme of the old Get Smart TV show. We got a B for it (there was a glitch in the editing). We then debated if we had broken the law or not since all the messages are already on all the tapes.

Were you debating if the fact that you showed the FBI warnings violated a copyright law?

I don't like those people that give you a strange look every time you ask them a question or try to talk to them. Dude, I'm just trying to have a conversation with you like NORMAL PEOPLE do every day! No wonder you're a social retard, you alienate everyone that shows any interest in wanting to hear about you.

I had a class with someone like that this semester.  That kid really freaked me out, plus all he would do in class is write out lists about either Castlevania or some other game series.
