:fist: Glad I added something worthwhile. Coincidentally, I add something worthwhile to the board at a rate of 5%.

Thread titles that are just ellipsis with no indication whatsoever what they're about.

To the people having really loud and animated conversations on blue tooth while walking down the street you look like a crazy person.

This bothers me too.

I'll add using a player's name as the sole thread title. The thread is not an all encompassing discussion of said player, usually just one extremely limited topic.

Not unless you REALLY like Iced Earth's Something Wicked trilogy.

And speaking of which, the remake sucked.

I haven’t been in any form of compulsory education for almost 20 years, but it still bothers me if I hear anything related to “back to school” before, say, August.

The Kenney Chesney concert this saturday was the best evidence I've seen this calendar year that the movie Idiocracy is much closer to 20 years away as opposed to 500.

T-shirts with alcohol logos. Somebody today gave me a white t-shirt with a stupid Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey picture on it. Like I'm going to wear it. I don't even drink. Even if I did, I wouldn't walk around all proud of myself for being an alcoholic. And I'm certainly not going to turn myself into a walking billboard for an alcohol company. Going to find somebody and give it to them so then I could make fun of them for wearing it.

Frequently on comcast, I am seeing commercials where 1 second of a commerical plays and then it cuts to another one. Annoying as hell.

I've had these tendencies lately where I lay down just for 15 minutes to regain some strength and relax a little.... then end up falling asleep for several hours, with my contacts and all. Now it's 5am and I don't know if to go back to sleep or hang out. I'm pretty well rested, though.

Flew back to NY from Tulsa this morning (BtW, Delta SUCKS)

I had the window seat. A couple was sitting next to me, the guy in the middle seat.

First of all, they brought stinky food on the plane. They ate it while we were waiting at the gate. Left they damn tray down until we were taking off. Idiots, it's not just inconvienent, it's a safety issue.

Let's just say it was before noon and they weren't eating salad.

I'm OK with a bagel, or granola bar, or whatever, but pungent foods before lunch?

That wasn't as big a deal to me as the tray being down on takeoff though.

Medications when the side effects are worse than the symptoms the medication is suppose to help.
