Not irrational.

The thing about this that's worse than the politicians is that- political ads end on election day. There's not an end to these as far as I can tell.

Those ads are not a new thing sadly. They have flared back up though. I remember a few seasons ago there was a Highmark ad on seemingly every commercial break.

When I hit CTRL-F in a program to bring up a search box and it does not automatically move the cursor to the box so I can just start typing. Hey programmers, why do you think I just hit that combo? Because I'm thinking about doing a text search at some point in the future?

I don't like the ones that write lousy software.

On that note, I solved (after a $110 expense) my symbol-entry problem with a P.I. Engineering X-keys 16-key stick. http://www.piengineering.com/xkeys/xk16stick.php. For example, I can not only now press a single button to type a section symbol, but I also have it set to follow that with a nonbreaking space. I still have six keys left over, so I need to see what sort of other stuff I can automate.

Sports fans that cry about everything and sensationalize every little aspect of sport to fit their agenda on how said sport should be played.

People who arrive at a stop sign with no turn signals on. Then after they stop for a second or two, they put a signal on and look at you like you are evil for proceeding through the intersection. Make up your mind sooner!

My dog does the same thing. He will pee right near the porch because he hates to go out in the rain. I literally have to chase him into the yard to get him to poop. He hates rain, but the little guy love snow. If it's snowing our or there is snow on the ground he will go out there and just sit down and put his nose up in the air. Don't get what the big difference is between rain and snow, but he hates rain, and loves snow.

The fact that some rookie is wearing #84 for the Minnesota Vikings.

That is and will always be Randy Moss's number.
