Yes, but it makes one powerful. Plus, shooting lightning bolts out of my hands? That is AWESOME.

Oh, a new addition:

--People who are CONSTANTLY on their cell phones. Not just "a lot" or "a whole bunch." Constantly. They walk with it. They use it when a landline is right there...then complain about the signal.

Don't the "powerful" bad guys in that movie end up... dead, or converted to good?

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Anyway, I really hate the double standard that the government has. I was pulled over the other day for blowing past a stop sign in a place I had never been before at six in the morning. No one was around. Only me and this random police officer that appeared out of nowhere. He gave me a ticket for $150. I was pretty pissed but then a couple of days later I saw two school buses and a state owned construction vehicle run a stop sign during rush hour. Pisses me off so much that teenagers are targeted for driving when there are much worse drivers out there. Like senior citizens.

Well, I agree that ticket is bullshit. That said, statistically teenagers are far worse drivers then seniors. The most dangerous time is when you've had your license for a year or so. then you think you know what you're doing. I know that's how I was.

Ohh. This could be fun!

And btw, SDW2001 is not a hater. There is a difference between hate and irritation.

I'm to tired to make a list.

So out of curiosity, SDW:

1- what grade(s) do you teacher?
2- big school or small school?
3- are you a cool teacher or a boring-stick-up-the-ass-teacher?

1. Elem. Music. In the summer HS band. I've done all levels during my career.

2. Medium small sized district...3,500 students....350 in my school.

3. Well, everyone thinks they are cool No really, I'm a crazy maniac music teacher. I am a total ham with the kids and I really try to involve them and build rapport. Tough to describe...but from the feedback there is no question in my mind that I'm not the boring stick-up-the-ass kind.

A big list indeed ! Don't you feel with so much of `hated' things in life, it would be quite difficult to live in this world ? Why not be a little more positive in appreciating better things available around us, so that, reminder of our lives is well spent ? This is not an advice but only a piece of observation with a sincere wish that our lives will be more colourful and purposeful ?

Go do that - this thread is for stuff we hate.

- People who block the whole supermarket isle with a combination of corpulent bulk and cart.

- Time warner DVR box (not as good as Tivo, I would be embarrassed if I worked for Scientifica Atlantica, the device just sucks beyond belief).

- People who don't pay enough attention to notice that the light changed, or who don't know that you can turn right on a red light.

- BO

- Windows XP, which tortures me at work

- The "make fun of retards" section of American Idol

- American cars

- Politicians, particularly John Edwards

- Religion

- NASA

- Oppression of white people in Hawaii (evidently gangs of natives go around looking for white people to beat, and white kids get beaten in school).

- Air pollution

- Cancellation of every good Fox show - I am sure that New Amsterdam will get canceled after a couple shows just like Drive did.

- Fox news, and the entire Republican party

- Vegetables

- Lower class culture (non-tasteful car modification, underwear showing, loud auto music, etc)

- smokers

sooo funny, except I really want that ladder system; I used to watch the infomercial all the time just for fun when I was up late at night; in fact informercials when I can't sleep help put me to sleep (unless I get really sucked in, haha).

Oh, I agree. Nice ladder...super expensive though. But that guy. I just feel bad for him. I mean, you've seen him. He's got to be 350 lbs.

Yeah, infomercials are the bane of the 21st century! That LG ladder is kick a** though, the inspector who did our home inspection had one and it was rather nifty all the positions it could do.

Infomercials are a great American art form. If you come in late, a lot of the time you can't tell if their pitching some kind of acne cream, an investment opportunity, or a live changing series of instructional videos.

(Close up of "average person" talking head)

"Before I used the product/system, I was 100 pounds overweight living in a refrigerator carton under the freeway. Then I saw a commercial on TV. I figured, 'what have I got to lose?' I tell you, making that call was the smartest thing I've ever done."

In emails the quoted information should be at the bottom and the reply at the top. Who wants to sift through stuff you've already read just to get the the new stuff (nobody). In a forum, it's far better to have the quoted information at the top to remind people what the reply is referring to due to the chaotic nature of a thread.

Actually, it's more like the people that you just know have no reason to be on their phone. It's the people who look like they don't have two cents to rub together much less own a cell phone. But it's not just them...it's people like the teacher I may have mentioned. She's always on her phone on the way into school. There can't be a reason for that. An my one colleague...her phone goes off during in-service like 15 times a day...no joke. It's always her kids or husband too. It's like...seriously...can you not call when Mom is at work to ask her what to get for dinner? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

The only people I've seen break phone etiquette in the past few years have been pretty exclusively non-american, but during those rare times I go out to the burbs there still seems to be a lot of erratic driving when people are on the phone.

Hell, text, IM and in-person meetings are basically supplanting phones here in chicago. I rarely even bother getting phone numbers anymore. \
