This is usually what I do. Clicking the mouse wheel has always felt awkward to me.

Right click - Open in new Tab


Or click the scroll wheel/middle key (on laptops)

Either way takes more work than it should


I don't see how clicking 1 different button takes more work...t

the only exception might be describing the heat of a Bhut Jokola pepper (since it does take your breath away), but breathtaking isn't the first, second, or even third word I'd use.

How many times do I have to see girls reposting the same stupid Facebook privacy hoax over, and over, and over, and over again?

I have ex-coworkers in their late 40s or possibly even in their early 50s falling for that crap.

Speaking of Facebook, I hate when people interrupt a status message to randomly say hello.

Person 1 (aka original status message): Steelers looked bad last week. If they can't beat the Browns with Batch, then I don't like their chances this week.
Person 2: Yeah, Batch looked terrible. Still my team though.
Person 1: If we're lucky, Ben comes back and plays. Ben at 50% is better than Batch at 400%
Person 3: You really think Ben is coming back? I heard he wasn't healthy.
Person 2: It's a coin-flip chance. He might be back, he might not.
Person 4: HELLO! IT'S YOUR AUNT JENNY! HOW ARE THE KIDS! YOU REALLY NEED TO STOP BY SOMETIME WHEN YOU'RE NOT BUSY! HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON!

(and yes, usually the offender magically finds the caps lock before they start typing)

Why are you crashing the discussion? Make your own status for that ish. I'm gonna guess person 2 and 3 really don't care about personal life when there's a separate discussion going on. Even if nobody else joined the discussion yet, it's the equivalent of "Yeah, I don't give a crap about anything you wrote. I just thought I'd random drop my thoughts on your page."

Really? I like that word. Especially when describing beautiful women. Like when Miranda Kerr walks out in a bikini. I think it's perfectly OK to say she is breathtaking. But maybe you're referring to people overusing it on stupid stuff or exaggerating things, in which case I agree it can be annoying.

I don't know. Even beautiful women might even be a stretch for breathtaking.

Hot? Yes. Breathtaking? Eh, I don't know, it seems a bit much.

Know what's breathtaking? Getting the wind knocked out of you. That's freakin' breathtaking.

I don't even like it on the stationary bike. The way I look at it is if you're able to read and turn pages you aren't working out very hard.

What I can't stand at the gym is the person who does a set on any given maching and the sits there for 5 minutes checking their phone or texting. then does another set and repeats. Drives me insane

Your brain works better when your exerting yourself.

The biggest gym faux pas IMO are the people who do their dumbell sets right at the rack. Really? GTFO of the way. I really have to wait for you so that I can either put my weights away or get the ones your blocking.

You've never gotten so mesmerized by a beautiful girl that you just stared in awe and melted inside? How about a guy?

What's wrong with stunning now, lol. I dunno, man. OK. You see an extra-ordinarily good looking girl. You use the words 'beautiful' or 'gorgeous'?
