Fair point, but I normally just watch videos on my laptop. Pretty much specifically for the absence of ads.

People who turn left out of the trader joes side entrance. Use the light you knuckle head. Penn avenue is busy and I don't want to wait behind you for five minutes while you grow a set

That I have to remove the entire door panel to change the speakers in my car. Seriously, car makers, would it kill you to make the grille over the speaker removable so I dont have to dismantle half my car to get at it?

So there is a little shopping plaza next to my neighborhood. There is a pizza place, a dollar general and this small dive bar with crap food. No one is in this plaza right now other than a few cars. I'm parked along the fire lane because my wife is buying a bag of ice. I have a screaming baby on the car. Some dbag township cop decides to give me a hard time and tells me to move. My wife is literally walking out of the store. I was going to grab the bag of ice so she doesn't have to lift it.

JFC just drive along, buddy. Smug a hole.

Loudmouth freakin' youth sports parents.

Know what's worse than tolerating an opposing parent who really deserves a punch in the face? Having a d-bag parent on your own team you have to hear week, after week, after week. Fall soccer, 2 sessions indoor soccer, now spring soccer. If I was the coach we'd be having a conversation since the kid can't hear me over his d-bag dad.

Dude, your kid's not Beckham. Quit yelling at him like you think he is, but he's just not trying hard enough.

Guy's always yelling "YOU'RE THE FASTEST PLAYER ON THE FIELD, USE YOUR SPEED." If this kid is the fastest, it's not by a margin where it's obvious. So, while this statement is insulting to the rest of the players, it might be even more insulting to his own kid, because the implication is that he's just not trying.

I feel bad for the kid, it has to be embarrassing.

When my bro in law was coaching my niece's bball team there was a parent who was like that always yelling at his daughter about what she should do, so much so that she'd be looking in the stands to here dad to get instructions. She got benched, and she was told, I'm the coach you look to me for instructions. Her dad said something to my Bro in law about it and the parent was told, I'm the coach not you. if she's going to play she's going to follow my instructions. Parent grumbled a bit but in the long run he shut up.

Apparently some youth sports leagues have adopted bylaws stating that you don't yell anything beyond just cheering from the sidelines. It's too bad it's come to that.

Don't play in to that. If a skinny girl ever says she's fat, just agree with her.

I only just heard it in passing with a group of girls going to what appears to be a Miley Cyrus concert. Guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Sirius XM single artist channels. Satellite has Pearl Jam, Springsteen, Grateful Dead, plus online has Neil Diamond and Pink Floyd... I don't mind the temporary ones like the Billy Joel one they are doing on Channel 4, but even though those are great artists for what they do (I'm not a huge fan of any of them), if you're a big fan you probably have most of their stuff anyway. Waste of bandwidth as far as I'm concerned.

Our little league fields had stands only in the outfield, nothing on the first/third base lines. I approved.

In terms of pet peeves, when everyone on your street has a 2-car garage, plenty of driveway space... and people still park on the road. Worse - they park RIGHT BEHIND a driveway on the opposite side of the road, so that when that person backs out of their driveway - they have a surprise waiting for them on the road if they aren't careful.

My proposed change in law - if you are parked on a road that you should not be parked on - a collision is your fault.

The counter to this is the Carlin channel. Since the Raw Dog channel is doing talk show stuff now and the other channels are riddled with commercials for credit problems and dating sites, I spend a lot of time on the Carlin channel. I'm a huge Carlin fan and they could use some more content but it's reliable as hell from an entertainment standpoint.
