I don't like people who casually say on an Xfire or a Steam chat that they have pirated a game, then complain that it doesn't work. Uh, sorry? You say that the game sucks because the patch won't work on a game that you pirated? If you aquirred a game for free using less than legal means then good for you, but don't complain about it being below quality, even though it's something you didn't pay for. I don't consider Pirated Games downloaded off the internet stealling, I just consider it cheap and lazy.

I don't like conspiracy theories, doomsday prophecies and the like.

The recent swine flu thing is giving me a headache.

Hey, man. This swine flu thing is clearly just another big fear-fest created by pharmaceutical corporations and the military to test the effects of drugs, via vaccines, on millions of people.
Clearly.

Gauph is right. Wake up Sheeple.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I have a gripe with death for having taken Oscar Wilde, and with Oscar Wilde for diddling little boys, and with little boys for being attractive to Wilde in the first place.

Oh, and Liberals, Conservatives, Libertarians, Communists, Socialists, Democrats, Republicans, Gandhi, Eva Peron, trees, and Rigel Centauris.

Microsoft...i am sick of them.

I am tired of having to watch how long i play my system so it does not red ring.

I miffed that and instead of fixing the problem they make two more premium systems that you have to buy to avoid the red ring.

I am sick of their customer support that had me buy a cord i didn't need when they sent me back an xbox with a faulty graphics card.

And today was the last straw. i am busy and i don't always use live month to month. So a month i feel like playing i grab a one month live card. Went to gamestop today only to learn Microsoft discontinued one month cards. You now have to but at least 3 months or higher. Why? Because my Microsoft says so and if you want to play online you are going to have to bend over close you eyes and grit your teeth.

I am so close to trading in my 360 and buying a PS3 its not even funny.

I know you're just an exaggerating, but you could get a PC for around 600$ that would last at least 2 years and run any current game splendidly.

I've never understood this whole red ring issue. Maybe it's just an American thing. My Xbox has never red-ringed (of course, that's probably tempting the hidden forces of irony), and I've only ever heard of one friend's doing it.

Mine hasn't either. No-one I know has suffered that problem.

600$ is cheap for a gaming computer, But 600$ is a lot of cash to drop on a new computer when i already have a fully functional one. (2 actually).

I've never understood this whole red ring issue. Maybe it's just an American thing. My Xbox has never red-ringed (of course, that's probably tempting the hidden forces of irony), and I've only ever heard of one friend's doing it.

My first 360 red ringed 2 months after i bought it, I sent it to Microsoft after jumping through hoops over the phone, A month later i received a replacement. I started the baby up only to have screen tearing and a ton of graphical glitches. Called Microsoft jumped through hoops again and he suggested that my HD cord was damaged and told me to buy a new one.

Bought a new cord and it didn't work, Called again jumped through more hoops including listing every single game that it had problems on. Finally got it sent back 3 weeks later i got another one that actually worked. I should also note that every hoop jumped through over the phone was done with a person on the other end of the line that could barely speak English.

Since then i am paranoid about it and make sure the 360 is never on or played with for very long at a time so it does not over heat.

I got the overheating red ring, sent it in, got it back a week later.

No problem ever since.

Reminds me of how I once was about my Logictech headphones.

My gripe concerns my future. The truth is I have no Idea what the hell I want to do with it. I've got sights set on writing but the truth is that I doubt my ability, so much so that I don't think I'll make it. That and the amount of money I would make would be chump change. I have thought about going into maybe a medicine career like dentistry or psychiatry but I don't think I have the guts or emotional will to talk to sick people all day, even with the great pay and all. I also doubt that I could muster the Math grades needed to pass medical school or even get into a high end medical college. I could try my hand at being a philosopher but then again those guys get paid diddly squat. I could try to get into a science field but once again my lack of mathematical prowess pretty much put that career in the dust. So yah, indecision, indecision, indecision...  

But hey, at least I got skills.
