Ratuken sounds like a move Ryu makes in the Street Fighter games.

I first noticed this trend on Spike during 1,000 Ways to Die, but it's spreading to other channels now too (namely Discovery)... They will show a boatload of commercials followed by a 20-30 second clip of the show, then a boatload more of commercials. Obnoxious... this is why I wait to watch most shows until after I've recorded them.

oh hey whats up sockets?



Not always available. Had to do up a couple clamps at work the other day. They were in an awkward position that made them hard to tighten with a flat screwdriver. Found a socket set. The clamps had different size heads. No ratchet. After 10 minutes of fiddling around I found the two sockets I needed, used a straight screwdriver in the end where the ratchet goes and was able to get them tightened. All of that could've been avoided with a phillips.

When people make left turns at a 45 degree angle (or less) and then glare at you because you're in their way. If you could make a left turn the way it's supposed to be done, nobody would have any issues!

So you don't have to cross the double yellow line to make a turn?

Conversational phrases never bothered me. I can't think of a time when how a person spoke annoyed me, excepting of course the actual voice of the speaker.

Actually, improper grammar of seen vs saw bothers me.

"I seen it," bugs the living **** out of me.

It bothers me when people commemorate random anniversaries. Like "47 years ago today, this happened". Stick to every 10 years, and maybe multiples of 25.

As long as its obvious I suppose it wouldn't bother me. But, I cannot recall a time when I can accurately say that this happened. It was common phrasing where I grew up and I hated it immensely.

"i seen it" spoken ironically is part of my standard lexicon

This is seems like a corrolary to my irrational hate of Doc Emrick (the real one) saying things like "Three and three quarters minutes remaining in regulation."

"I know, right?" as a response to a statement one agrees with is starting to climb up my peeve list.

People who sit at an intersection waiting to turn right when there is an acceleration lane installed for the sole purpose of turning right and speeding up to merge into traffic. What makes it worse is when they wait for no traffic to be coming and then use the acceleration lane anyway. Glad I don't carry a gun.
