Title: Something that annoys you
Post by: ericj on June 06, 2008, 11:22:35 PM
I thought this would be an interesting topic and didn't see any similar threads.

Question:
So, what is something that totally annoys the crap out of you?


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: nurd on June 06, 2008, 11:34:21 PM
Violins.

People who act like they know what they are doing when they aren't and then you tell them that they are doing it wrong and then your teacher tells me to stay out of it even though Sam clearly has no idea what he is doing.

The Bubble Bobble theme song. Nuff said.  :'(

Post by: JC on June 07, 2008, 02:37:04 AM
I'm offended. >:( Bubble Bobble is the best game. There's nothing  -- NOTHING -- wrong with it.

I'm annoyed by water that gathers at the base of a glass. Thank goodness for coasters.

Haha, I didn't say anything was wrong with Bubble Bobble! :D I like it too. I was just saying that the only song in the game that loops over an over again gets pretty annoying after 100 levels!   :-\

Gotta agree with Kuvio on that one...

All the rain and flooding that's been going on. All the tornado watches and code blacks we've had to deal with at work.

What is a code black?

Oh, one of the most used roads is under construction.

The whole thing.
At the same time.

It's really loud.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: thegreatgonzo on June 15, 2008, 03:59:24 AM
In hospitals and health care facilities, a code black is a serious weather alert, and depending on how serious it is, we close all blinds and remove patients from their rooms and keep them in areas away from windows... If those people are bedridden, we drag the beds into the hallways, or in mild cases, just turn their beds around so they don't face any windows. Everyone gets real bored, real fast, of this...

Oh, and the dining area is in a nice room full of windows. Guess where we can't serve them food?

Well another thing that annoys me is people who take a long time to order something from a simple menu. I mean it's all going to end up the same way so why even think about it.....it's plain and simple chicken, fish or beef.....pick one!

What irks me is that everyone thinks everything tastes better with cheese on it. Heck I'm form Wisconsin, and I say that cheese is great, but why must it be put on everything from eggs to apple pie to lettuce salads to chicken or fish? What's the point of putting shredded cheese on cottage cheese? Can't we appreciate the natural flavors of foods occasionally without cow goo covering everthing?

#1) Slow drivers.
~I mean seriously... lead, follow or get the hell outta' my way!  >:(

#2) People who come to damn near (or completely to) a complete stop when making a turn into a driveway or wherever.  ~I mean come on!  One only needs to slow down to about 5 mile an hour, no less than 3 and make the turn while continuing to slow down while your in the turn.

#3) People who swing out wide into the opposite side of the road to make a simple turn.  Unless you're driving an 18 wheeler, it's not necessary.

This is why I'd rather (yes even at age 30, almost 31) ride my 2008 GT SCOPEDOG BMX bike everywhere if I could, than to have to drive... could just jump a curb, zigzag in between vehicles and take a side road, go down an alley, ride down an embankment leading to a dirt road, etc.  But sadly that just isn't feasible most of the time.  :-\


Title: Re: Something that annoys you

How about people who constantly weave & not signal when changing lanes?

I swear one of these days...

& those people who drive slow in the left lane...

I tend to dislike people who use their brakes going downhill - I mean, what's the fun in that? And they start hitting the gas once they reach the bottom anyways.

Why not just let it roll & build up momentum... save gas while you're at it.

IT CAME OUT YESTERDAY ON THE WII??  *head explodes*

I'm not very up to date anymore on game release dates apparently.  I forgot Pokemon Platinum came out Sunday, so the first thing I did last Monday was get it...

And now I'm missing out on Guitar Hero??  That in itself annoys me >:(

And the reason it doesn't come out till later for the PS2 is probably because they want more people to start buying next gen systems....

I've heard that in Tetris, if you move and rotate a lot (side to side and rotation) the pieces you want to get, you will get more of them because the game counts this and thinks you are having trouble with them. Try it, it works. I usually do that with the "I" pieces and you'll get them more often.

So, basically, Sony released Music CDs that installed software which effectively put out a Welcome mat for spyware?


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: 133MHz on April 12, 2009, 12:24:56 AM
Not only that, it also modified your operating system to completely hide stuff from you, polled your hard drive like once every 2 seconds and messed with your CD drive. Attempting to uninstall the rootkit could render your CD drive inoperable in Windows.

It installed itself BEFORE it displayed the 'I agree' button, so even if you declined the license, you were already f'cked!

And the uninstaller they provided later left another Welcome mat for spyware.

Of course, it's on a Mac fanboy site... ::)

Last time I called Apple, I had a problem with iTunes, and my representative was some guy who could barely speak English through his strong accent...

They said they would email me or call me back with the solution in a few days... over one year ago....and I still haven't fixed the problem.  About two weeks later, I called them again, and I got a different guy with a different accent...and I could tell they were reading out of a book or manual or something...because they were telling me very basic information....

Yeah...customer satisfaction at it's highest...

I've never had a problem with my Dell desktop computer...so I've never dealt with their customer service.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: MaxXimus on April 18, 2009, 08:30:29 PM
From what my brother tells me, dell has great customer support. He runs the server for PoKeGlobal and in the three or so years he has had his dell server, he has had 1 or two problems, and within a couple days there was a dell representative at his door with replacement parts at no cost. they even installed them for free. That is what i call good support. He did however purchase a good warrenty, so that may also have something to do with it.

Anyway, something that just makes me fume is when i am accused of something, especially without getting any facts about the situation. i don't think anything makes me more mad in such a short period of time than that. well, there other things that get me going, like when people make fun of my eyes. it's something that i can't help(i'm about 90% blind for those who don't know)

i generally don't get mad otherwise. i tend to just let things go unless it happens all the time.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on April 18, 2009, 08:35:58 PM
Our family has had many instances where we'd have to call Dell (which is probably why my mom wanted to switch to HP), & their customer service was pretty good.

The only problem was having to wait to talk to somebody, which I'd guess is a problem with so many people having problems. :-\

I don't have a Dell laptop, but it's common knowledge around where I live that Dell's got the best customer support, especially for laptops. Other manufacturers like HP don't even have real people here, making you ship your laptop to Mexico if it needs service, leaving you several weeks without your computer and in some cases, returning it to you untouched or in a worse condition! OTOH Dell's got loads of service centers in Chile and they're really fast & efficient at getting your computer back in business.

If I think I know what you mean, then I think you might be the only one who has ever thought that. Or, I'm the only one who hasn't thought of it. Or maybe I'm the only person who knows what the heck I'm talking about.

Taking this back on topic...

I think it's annoying when something interesting happens to someone and they tell you the story of what happened and then over the course of the day you overhear them telling the exact same story  over and over to everyone they talk to. Send a mass email or something so I don't have to hear you drone on and on repeatedly about the same f*ing thing...

Edit: It is interesting to hear how the story changes over the course of the day, though.

A pet peeve of mine is people talking to me while I'm eating:

I'm eating.
"Hello, say something." -idiot
What am I supposed to do?
"Helloooooooooooooooo?" -retard
By this point I just have enough room in my mouth to say 'Fuck off' or something & reduce the amount of debris that will go in the air to about 20%, so there's still a slight chance they'll feel it.

I've been to stores with all sorts of crazy hardware to test before buying and I've always received plenty of help.

Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: LocalToast on May 01, 2009, 08:42:39 PM
You know what grindsd my gears?  People who walk slowly in school hallways.

There's this corner in my school hallway that almost everybody walks around multiple times in a regular school day. You can't really see around it, so it's somewhat random. People will ALWAYS try to cut the inside of the corner, so you almost always run into somebody. Luckily I've learned to watch for reflections of people in the lockers adjacent to the corner.

The other thing that annoys me is large clusters of people that stand either in the hallways (we have relatively narrow halls, I guess) or in front of your locker, talking to someone else. (Our lockers are pretty close together)

I think if the school administration decided to mark out the hallway floor using lines and markings like those you would find on roads (i.e., lanes) and everybody followed them, it would be a much better place. Even if there weren't, it's not that hard to walk on one side of the hall...

</rant>


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: MaxXimus on May 01, 2009, 08:52:14 PM
I also think it's common sense to treet a walk way like a road. i always walk on the right side. People do it up stairs; why not through halls and walk ways?


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: nurd on May 01, 2009, 09:34:58 PM
People who walk in lines down hallways, perpendicular to the walls.

Our school has like 1,800 students, and for some reason our stairs are narrower than the ones at the middle schools.

There is this one girl, and I'm not making this up, takes up the entire thing. If you want to go up while she is walking down, you have to wait.

Our school laptops are really bad.  My mom's PC can run the Google Earth flight simulator well.  My school laptop?  Not so much.  Also, when I open my laptop and take it out of Sleep Mode, half the time the Internet doesn't work.  (THE MICROSOFT PHISHING FILTER IS UNAVAILABLE HURR HURR)  Sometimes the laptop won't let me use the Internet, period, and I have to reboot.  Oh, and this program installed by the school (Aemanager) randomly opens a window to tell me what I'm doing is not allowed by my school.  Even when I'm doing work.  It does NOTHING even the staff would find useful.  I could go on, but typing on a Wii is annoying.

We don't have personal laptops for school use, but we have carts full of them if a class needs to work on them at one time or something.  During homeroom, we can "check out" computers to do research, write papers, etc.

Our school has mostly PCs, and a few Macs that were given to select teachers.

I hate how every single kid in my grade likes Macs, just because they "look cooler than Windows" At least give a reason ::)

This is ridiculous though- Our Hippie English Teacher's room has the best computers in the school, in about 30 seconds you can start it up and log in. Computers run crazy fast.


And he wants to get rid of them and get eMacs.

He does games that people consider decent on occasion. If you read his FAQ it says that he does it for comedy purposes only and even he thinks that some of the games he reviews aren't as bad as he says, so I'm cool with it, even if I see him ranting about a game I particularly like.

Hangnails... normally they aren't THAT bad, but I have one that's practically rooted underneath my fingernail... >:(

Ironically, I was talking with a friend at school about annoying hangnails, when shortly after I discovered this one.

Fuzzy Pickles?  He must've played EarthBound.  Or he had a son who's played it.  In the game, at predetermined points, a cameraman falls from the sky, takes a picture and leaves.  You get to see it at the end.  I believe this is exactly what he says...

"Pictures taken instantaneously!  I'm a photographic genius, if I do say so myself.  Now, smile and say, 'Fuzzy Pickles'!

*snap*

Wow, what a great photograph!  It will always bring back the greatest of memories."

MY LEFT EYE

I don't know what's in it, because I couldn't see anything when I looked in a mirror.  I tried eye drops, plain water, pulling my eyelid and blinking, nothing works.  My eye won't stop tearing, and it hurts a little when I blink.

What probably happened was you got a grain of sand or something in your eye and you washed it out, but it scratched your eye so it still felt as if it was there long after it was gone.

May have been a little piece of my ceiling or something.  I have a loft bed, so I'm right under the ceiling.  It doesn't hurt at all, now.  So it came and went.  No need to see a doctor unless I wake up with the same pain.

Yesterday, I was at one of those famiclone kiosks at the mall. It had a nice selection: The Super Joy penguin, a Wii ripoff, but what caught my eye was a pirate multi-cart in the back of the penguin. I asked the lady if they sold the cartridges alone, and she said she would. Score, right? Wrong. She would not sell me the cartridge unless I had a system to play it on, and she didn't know what a Famicom was. She wouldn't give me the game unless I brought my Famicom to the mall and showed it to her.
That is the most annoying thing that's happened to me in a long time.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: nintendodork on May 26, 2009, 02:33:14 PM
That's stupid!!  Why does she (or the mall) care if you have a system or not??  Besides, what you use the game for is private.  They don't know you're going to play it.  Maybe you just want the shell.  Wow.  That sucks.  How much were the Penguins w/ a game?  If they weren't too bad, I would've probably just bought the Penguin, seeing as it's one of the coolest Famiclones out there :P


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Byron on May 26, 2009, 02:39:50 PM
I didn't ask how much the penguin was. Probably not too expensive, it is a mall kiosk after all.

So, you guys remember my truck, (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=299.msg55789#msg55789) right? Well, I just got off the phone with a friend of mine. He's a down-to-earth, decent person, but he lives in one of those gated communities where everybody's really rich and stuck up. He told me that recently his neighbors came to his door bitching about my truck, saying that I should keep it out of their neighborhood because it's "lowering the resale value of their houses." He laughed at them and closed the door. 
I can't stop laughing either, but still, I love my truck and when someone looks down on me for driving it, it's pretty insulting. So, what annoys me today is people who are so rich and wrapped up in their status and image they've lost touch with reality completely.

It's not the condition of the thing that bugs them, it's just the fact that it's an old pickup. That's the way it is here in Texas. if you drive and old pickup, the "classy" people are going to look down their noses at you like a redneck or some other "low class" person.

It annoys me that animation has taken a nose dive lately. I mean shows like Chowder and Flapjack are great. But then you get crap from Canada like Total Drama Island and 6teen and Skunk-Fu.

Another thing that annoys me is cartoons made in Flash. I understand it's cheaper and such, but it just looks so cheap and terrible. Like a show could have an interesting concept and then just suck in the art department because it looks like it was made in a week in Flash CS4.

Bleh.

I liked Total Drama Island. :( Action however could use some improvement in the writing department. :-\

And as for ATHF - I don't know, but I used to have the DVD set & the first disc of the first volume had the first draft of the first episode available to watch.  The black in the characters were see-through, like in a GIF.  Does that explain it? :-\

The Colon Movie for Film for DVD however, showed some pre-images, that were drawn & animated by hand. :-\

They are made in some sort of animating program that professionals use. All the models are drawn from hand, lined and colored via computer and animated. Part of the gimmick with ATHF is that it's supposed to look like crap and isnt exactly the best in animation. However, these are the same guys who wrote for SGC2C so they are probably using the same program to do their stuff.

Either way, no. They don't use flash from what I can tell.  :-X

I don't like it when older cartoons that are still going (i.e The Simpsons, Spongebob) make the transition from hand-drawn to flash.  Especially when you're watching multiple seasons of a show at once.  It also seems the show's overall nature changes a bit when the animation does, too. :-\

Post by: 133MHz on October 12, 2009, 06:01:32 AM
That reminded me of exploding CDs. Mostly an urban legend but the Mythbusters proved that CDs can explode if they're spun faster than 56X speed and I had such an incident about 10 years ago.

I was installing Windows 95 into an old 486 computer with an old 24X CD-ROM drive. The drive was old and finicky but it was still reading fine. It was happily copying files for the Windows setup when all of a sudden I hear the spindle motor stopping and then starting again, but this time I could hear the speed ramping up like a race car and it was followed by a loud BANG!. It was so loud I was scared shitless and even my neighbors got to hear it and they thought it was a gunshot. I had to disassemble the drive to retrieve the shattered remains of my original Windows 95 CD >:( :'(. Needless to say the drive was immediately scrapped.

Apparently the spindle speed controller on these old drives could enter a failure mode where the controller couldn't sense the spindle motor speed, and just kept raising it until the CD violently explodes because of the enormous centrifugal forces acting on it. After that, high-speed CD-ROM drives always made me a little nervous, especially when the spinning disc sounded like a jet engine :o.

Also there was another failure mode in which the automatic braking system didn't work when you pressed the eject button and your disc would come out furiously spinning on top of the plastic tray. Many of my CDs ended up badly scratched because of this :'(.

Ever wondered why CD drives never got faster than 56X? ::)
Fortunately DVDs don't have to spin that fast!

You're serious right?  They have fined lots, you just don't hear about it.  Ironically, they didn't fine for the hot coffee thing straight off the bat.  But it had worse connotations.

Yes, I'm serious.  I have never heard of them fining anyone.  Their FAQ says that the publishers are legally bound to fully disclose all "pertinent content" and can issues fines if they submit only part of the content.  If that's why they're issuing fines, it's probably due to a mistake on the publisher's end.

Sheesh! These rating systems really need to die!

You have no idea what purpose they serve, do you?  If there weren't an independent ratings board for games (and movies), there's a very good chance they'd all be federally regulated.  The ESRB is the main thing keeping the "won't somebody please think of the children" nutjobs from screwing up videogames for everyone.

YK (YelseyKing) is a greedy asshole who did not tag (well not honestly and legitimately) my SPC sets Even after I deliberately told him not to. I hope everyone (including YK himself) reads this and knows how much of an slow inbred asshole he is. Yes, I said it; YK is an ass, now YK remove your name from those sets at once! And keep in mind folks that most of the list sets below are not completely mine as I worked with someone else on them and I have all the proof on that if you really want it.

These are all of the sets in which YK did NOT tag and should not receive credit for them. I have spent hours upon hours playing these games and what happens? Some guy from Phoenix, Arizona named Matt Hobbs says he had tagged my sets and the other person's set just because he has the uploads them to the site? Sounds like a case of theft, dishonesty and greed. Three out of the seven deadly sins, not bad but you're still going to hell for this BS that you pawned onto everyone with false information. Hey, YK, tag your own shit and stop stealing from people.

Well, now you know the true story folks. Have a nice day and stop calling information directory assistance because euphemisms are stupid, annoying and just as bad is as this guy is.

Here's the thing with Twitter:  it is effectively a blog in which anyone and everyone can post about anything and everything.  The username is the author of the post, @username posts are comments, and the #topic hashtags are post tags. 

The trick to enjoying Twitter is to realize this and filter things accordingly, such that you are left with a blog that contains posts only by people and/or topics that you are interested in.

Sure, you have to wake up early and deal with fucktard classmates and insufferable teachers and eat the school "food", but without school I'd probably have almost no friends.

Reminds me of one of my favorite George Carlin quotes: “Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac.”

I'm annoyed by people who have 25 items to purchase, but are in the 10 items or less checkout lane at the grocery store.

10 items or less OR 10 items or fewer.

Maybe Whole Foods uses the latter, but almost all grocery stores (incorrectly) specifically call it the "10 items or less" express lane.  Have a look next time you're there.

Using their terminology, stating "10 items or less" is correct provided you're referrring to how your specific store names it, regardless of grammatical accuracy. 

Damn grammaratarians...

I think "Up to 10 Items" is the way to go.

Fewer is used to describe countable things. Less is used to describe uncountable quantities, collective amounts, and degree. Items in a store are countable from a purchasing standpoint, so fewer is the correct choice.

Also, for those who would like a brief explanation, here's the thread I made on the original forum:

INDEED.

I forgot my biggest hate - this is a big one.

When freakin' iTunes arranges all my music into artist folders and I have to trawl through making all the info the same on each album.  I can't put into words how much that makes me want  to put a fist through my screen.  Even with manual sorting on, it still does this.  Even though it's told not to, I still have to endure it.  What monkey designed it that way??

Apple stuff is designed for morons but I swear the more I use it the dumber I get.  Maybe it's trying to suck whatever intelligence I do have out of my brain so that I'll hurry on down to the Apple store and buy that bullshit ass junk piece of iPad scuzz.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you

Wait, really? Can you explain this further?

I have my music arranged like this:

iTunes -> Album -> Files

it would change that?


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: L___E___T on February 02, 2010, 05:50:09 AM
I think so yes.  Trouble is, all my albums have multiple artists in and I tend to make one group of tracks an album.  Like my favorite picks from OC remix for example, which literally went in as their own artists and separate album for each one.  It annoys me no end.

Even when it should be the same album, like a compilation from a CD not imported mp3s it splits them.  But yeah, I just have the album view.

That can be annoying in some circumstances, but personification is a useful tool. When people talk about society, they generally mean everybody that belongs to the society they live in. When people talk about Hollywood, they're usually talking about the folks involved in mainstream big-budget cinema. Once you understand what they're referring to it's not that bad. If people had to go into exacting specifics about everything they said, communication would be a lot more frustrating and a lot less useful.

I leave you with a quote from the wonderful film Repo Man (not to be confused with Repo Men, which is a piece of crap) :

    Duke: The lights are growing dim. I know a life of crime led me to this sorry fate... And yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.
    Otto Maddox: Bullshit! You're a white suburban punk, just like me!

Often I think people don't know what they're talking about when they use such terms as 'society' , 'Hollywood' , 'the Government' & such.

I'm not saying all people do this, but generally when there's a disturbance, someone will fabricate a greater evil & blame that.

Here's why it's a fallacy:

No one person controls the movie industry, our country, or a group of people - it's every single one of us.  We can use these terms, but to a limited extent.

And Hollywood is a misnomer - not all big-budget films are made in Hollywood.  That's why I'll steer away from that term.  Think how it would sound like if someone used your home city to describe an industry:

San Diego needs to unscrew their heads & get with the program - yeah I don't like that. :-\


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: tankexmortis on June 24, 2010, 12:09:00 PM
Oh I completely agree that when people do that they're being idiots. I just think you're blaming the wrong thing. Blaming the language rather than the ignorance doesn't make much sense to me.

And yes, loads of movies are no longer made in, or even around, Hollywood anymore. Unfortunately, language works in such a way that words develop new meanings over time whether we want them to or not. Thus Hollywood means both "Hollywood, CA" (as well as various other Hollywoods around the country) and "them dang movie people".

People tend to do this to help relatives keep up on the development of their nieces/nephews/grandchildren/cousins etc. Trust me, it's not so bad if you're half a country away and want to hear about what your brother's kids are up to.

Of course I'm sure it depends on the person doing the talking.

Man, soup annoys me, too! It's such a crappy food! "Let's just put a bunch of crap in water and call it a meal, even though it doesn't fill anyone up and has the texture of a diseased bowel movement!"

That said, my mom makes this one Thai soup that's to die for. That's one bowel movement I'm happy to put in my mouth, yes sir!

Quote
And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply
So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said you look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do
So I took off my hat I said imagine that, huh, me working for you

All the singer has proved is that long haired freaky people are douchebags.  He's reinforcing the negative stereotype held by the boss!

Most LCD monitors nowadays sporting only a VGA input. Seriously?! The LCD panel is 100% digital and so is its driving circuitry, heck even the video card works digitally. Why force a lossy digital to analog and back to digital conversion step into the process when it's certainly easier and cheaper just to go lossless digital (aka DVI, HDMI) all the way?

I can't believe most small to medium sized consumer grade LCD monitors you can get in stores nowadays only provide analog video interconnects. Doesn't make sense from an economic standpoint either (plain digital would be cheaper since it requires less hardware).

In fact that has been putting me off from upgrading my 16" LCD to a 19" or 20" model. I prefer to wait and get a used LCD with a DVI input than a brand new one with just VGA. Surely I can't be the only one who feels this way.... am I? ::)

My screen came with both, so I'm pretty much indifferent to it, but I think it's a cost saving measure. The manufacturers must figure everyone either has VGA or has a little adapter to easily get it.  :(


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on September 01, 2010, 06:58:40 AM
Our Vizio came with both kinds, including (I think) RF, AV, HDMI, VGA, & component.

Edit: Come to think of it, this brings up a subject that irks me - the emphasis on high quality video.

I was perfectly set with analog TV, but now when I play old gen games on that LCD screen, the quality looks really bad now.

I think this is the same reason why I don't want to get laser eye surgery - I don't want to see everything clearly.  I'm compulsive, & when I wear contacts I always find myself cleaning things.

I went to my first metal concert.

It was so loud, I couldn't even tell what music they were playing.

I kinda expected this, & I guess all these years I didn't miss much. :-\

I've gone to my fair share of metal concerts, and one thing I learned is if you can't tell what music they are playing, that means the amplification & mixing are utter shite. Concert audio done right is an awesome experience.

You did wear earplugs, right?

I believe that the role of government is to provide for its people, and that socialist states provide for all rather than just the wealthy and powerful, like capitalist states. That said, I'm not a Communist by any means. Sweden and Norway have the closest systems to what I would advocate.

Hope im not sounding like a dumb*ss but from the tidbits of info about communism and socialism, ive come to think that in a perfect world, they would work perfectly, but we have free will and a desire to be different than others. Capitalism, as i see it, is what the real world hands you. Its rough for those at the bottom of the social classes, but thats apparently how the world works. We will never have a perfect government. In fact, i find those as opposites. Governments are constantly changing and growing or shrinking, while perfection will never have to change. Oh well, at least theres video games to distract us from the ignorance and plain stupidity of those who run governments worldwide.

Yeah that typo made it unclear sorry haha. I agree with you, socialism works better with smaller and homogeneous populations.

In fact, i find those as opposites. Governments are constantly changing and growing or shrinking, while perfection will never have to change. Oh well, at least theres video games to distract us from the ignorance and plain stupidity of those who run governments worldwide.

But see socialism and communism do nothing to limit free will and individual expression. I think the problem is you, like many people, are thinking of socialism as the USSR or Cuba. Those states were ruled by communist parties, but were very far from communism. Communism as Marx described it is a classes, stateless, Utopian society where the people work for the benefit of the whole and not for individual gain. So yes, that would never work as it ignores human nature. The best descriptor for the style of government of the USSR would be something like "totalitarian socialism". I'm a democratic socialist; I believe in free and fair elections, individual liberties, and other democratic values; but I also believe that the state should provide a comprehensive system of social welfare. Jobs, health care, national defense, etc. should all be provided by the state.  

Sorry, didn't mean to make this a tl;dr snoozefest.

Like I said, I dont have a whole lot of info on communism and socialism, marxism, and whatever there may be, i just based what I said off of what I hear from advocates and opponents of them. A perfect world would be great, but, free will, desire, and the nature of our being will not allow it to exist.

Want to go further with misusing the English language? I have five minutes to spare, so I'll make a quick list.

overusing words: got.  "America's got talent"

making up stupid words like "app" "legit" "sexting" "gotta" "gunna"... list goes on.

Abusing acronyms for everything... nevermind using them in real life situations.

American English in general... listen to Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark" or anything by Tom Petty.

"Censorship and new laws" is part of an entirely different plan altogether. I believe someone landed on the Moon at some point in time, yes people have defaced the moon with flags, footprints fuel remnants and metal fragments among other things.

I hate people who thinks all Asian people are Chinese. Then I hate when these same people thinks that ( being Chinese nowaday means you have deep pockets, and it sucks to be anything else. ) Seriously I hate these idiots.

Gamers ( consumers of videogames ), webo's ( people who use Japanese language along side X language like it is the same, and dress somewhat like Asian people ), and Anime freaks ( people who thinks Anime is a cool thing, and pukes at the word of Animation, and think their is something differnt about the two words, when one word is advertisment fake out, and blah blah ), and in the consideration of Otaku ( shut in's and people who play videogames and read comic books ).

We did first. Guess what, No we did not. Before us, and before the Japanimation, during the early 1990's. The same thing I just said about the Chinese occured. Before this was the post WWII movement, and before that was the Japonese movement.

Where was the Chinese in all of this? I will tell you. Playing refugeee during Korea war I + II, serving to the Brits in Hong Kong, and in USA dodging cars.
Yes their was many proffessionals during this time, but seriously that is what they were. Public executions, kidnapped sons, and even piles of bones like the likes of Hitler WWII Death camps.

Seriously, I am sooo damn sick of it. It has nothing to do with facebook ( AOL 2.0 , technology, or the internet. It is just misinformation. Yes I am being a complete dick like Todd from Canada, and I am saying the same bullcrap about wealthy Middle Easterners taking Latino's brides who convert into Islam.

Seriously I am getting really sick it.

Foerign people disrespecting you, in both ways.

1. Remember the film "Braveheart" ( yes remember those days, of warrior films and television ).
When the French princess was speaking her language to her servant. Then William Wallace agreed, to the terms. I mean William Wallace, shocked the living daylights out of them. Now in real life a man was telling me, he went to Russian, and spooked the Russians when he understood all the stuff they were saying. Now in real life, two students, was talking about a topic, and we could have taken part, but instead they continued to bicker.  We felt left out. Another instance is when I went into the store, the two couple was saying something about my freinds, and us. Another instant was when this girl in my class made a comment about me, and the guy is giggling along.

I HATE WHEN FOREINGERS ( refugees, Pugs with empty wallets, or whatever period ) take advantage of our lack of langauge, and then works side by side with us pretending to be nice, but you just know they say crap about us, without knowing us.

It is like when I worked at a resteraunt as a waiter ( good times those were ) and the people would bad mouth the staff all the time, "knowing they did not understood a word" ( some staff members did understood and left treats for guess). I could understand everything. Little kids are even calling me idiot, thinking I don't understand anything, to obease women talking about how they hate all ment and wish they were dead, and criminals talking about how we killed this and that.

2. This East Asian guy ( seriously deep ) in my college was telling me " He went to  school for computer etc " and then I humbly ask "Which school" and he replied with "You wouldn't be able to prounounce the word". I ask him again " could you please tell me the name anyways, or write it down, or direct me to the website. Still the guy would not give an answer at all. Then he pretends that he could not even understand me.

I mean, we are in phucking college, and this guy say bullcrap like to me. I think he was a staff member
( The IT jerks ), the terminal he was on, allways had the ability to add and remove programs ( which your not sappose to do ).

...

To top it off, to make we want to post this.

I over heard these two people outside

1. How they hate America soooo much.

2. America owes money to Japan and China ( remember these are college people  ::) )

3. blah blah famlies.

These people in that club are going threw the same transitions I had ( back in 1997 )
and I could just waltz in, and make a statement, but I don't want to break their mode ( like those
puppies in Golden Sun ), like I would normally do.

................

Those things along with that person who would not even tell me the name of his college is ticking me off.

Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: RegalSin on August 04, 2011, 12:47:26 PM
I am starting to the believe the entire basis for this website is the reason why USA is in such debt. fiction is a cool things, and I dedicate my entire life to ficiton, but seriously, before the Sushi, and rebirth of coca-cola drinking

Verbal abuse ( destruction of confidence )
Physical abuse ( destruction of outter beauty )
Propaganda ( media )
Beliefs that has nothing to do with us. ( imperialism )
Self hatred ( the desire to not follow anymore )
Then we look for money, to accomplish all of that and beyond.
Then many of us give and die, forsaken our true beliefs.
................

Anyways it is just my mind, I need to get back to work. I need to get another side job to pay for my damaged hard drive >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
I am going out of mind right now, three computers down

The G4 last model down,
The G5 second the last model, has frozen issues
My Athon XP 2gig down......
My 500mhz built in AGP down....

I am using a 2gig Intel with 98 and 1GiG memory I stole from the G5

I can't even tell what "foreigners" they are. Non-Americans? Or are you not American?

Though I must say it amazes me how the economists - some really smart guys - kept on encouraging borrowing money without having a plan on how to pay it back. I suppose national economics works different than personal economics.

When people (mostly girls on Facebook) make smileys like this: (: and ): instead of :) and :(.  It makes no sense for people to do it on Facebook since the only legitimate reason I could see for someone doing that is to avoid the default smiley icon (which I don't see why they do in the first place), but Facebook only uses those in Chat anyway.

I do. People where I am from are very inconsiderate of others feelings. Sometimes people will move but a lot of the time they will pretend they didn't hear you. I attribute that to the gang problem we have downtown and in the north end of our city. No one wants anything to do with anyone. It's quite sad really because this isn't how it was when I was just a kid.  Anywho!!!

Another thing that annoys me is when I tell someone in person that I am legally blind, sometimes they will ask me how many fingers they are holding up.  I mean come on lol, do  you ask a deaf person what something sounds like? :P

Yeah this place seems great it's like I'm actually allowed to have an opinion here!

Also here's something else that annoys me....a LOT of people assume I have connections to super cheap sources of playchoice rgb chips and / or av famicoms.  I bought all my gear back before I offered to build these systems.  After I started offering my service people started buying this stuff like rabid monkeys and the prices went really high.  I sold off any extra cheap parts a loooong time ago and I have no secret stash, and no secret connections to sweet deals.  The whole reason I tell clients to find their own rgb chip and av famicom in the wild is because I can no longer find this stuff for affordable prices myself.

I understand that taxes are necessary, but they should take more taxes from those who can afford it and not from those who can't. (Targeting those with kids and leaving everything mostly unchanged for people without kids is the wrong way to go in my opinion.)

And this year consumption tax will rise, too probably...

I'll admit, very often I rage at Street Fighter, which is inevitable, being that my 2 favorite characters, E. Honda and T. Hawk, are two of the worst in the game. However, as much as unwinnable matchups might irritate me, never do I quit. I just take the beating, move on to my next match, and pray to whatever is up in the sky that my next opponent doesn't pick Guile.

Yes that 5% consumption tax in Japan must be a REEEAAALLLL burden.  :D Try 25% like we have it here ;)

Sure money comes around and goes around... but it makes it hard for a merchant business to compete with individuals or those that are less serious... And it encourages cheating, obviously, since few business happily pay 25% for every nickel if they find a way to get away with it.  :D Technically I couldn't even give people stuff for free without paying 25% of the estimated value to taxes  :'( It sucks to have a small business here.... IMO, it's necessary to find the best way to avoid accounting and not getting caught...

Much respect, Hawk is a character who requires much knowledge of matchups. I currently have 12,000 BP with Hawk, 11,000 BP with Honda, 5,000 with Blanka. (Yeah, I know, I play way too much  :gamer: )

Sounds like you living in the Heaven. Ask manuel, how much cost these things here. IMO the problem is not to pay the tax, the problem where is that money going.

I can only second that. I wouldn't mind so much paying (higher) taxes if the money was at least used properly...

The battery in Pokemon Gold. This deserves a little story.

I'm 10 maybe, playing Pokemon Gold. I'm in National Park when all of the sudden, holy shit, it's a gold metapod. I catch it, and this is the first time I've ever knew about shiny pokemon. If you don't know, you have about a 1 in 8,000 chance of encountering a shiny pokemon. It eventually evolved into a shiny Butterfree. Less than a few weeks later, the battery in the cartridge died. I wept a little on the inside.

On a similar note, the S.S. Anne. An NPC said the ship visits Vermilion every year. That fucker never came back.

I waited for it.

wait so your friend thinks that you leaked this information to him?  Is he really your friend if he's not respecting your relationship?  I've had feelings for a friend in the past who was in a relationship.  But I kept those feelings to myself because I was friends with both her and her boyfriend.  It wasn't until she told me she had feelings for me too that I showed her that I liked her.

Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Drakon on May 05, 2012, 11:48:01 AM
Well you shouldn't end your marriage because of someone else, you should end your marriage because you want to end it.  Having someone else to start something with shouldn't matter when it comes to ending a marriage.  It would suck for your son somewhat but maybe not really.  My parents ended their marriage when I was 19 and I'm so glad that they did.  My mom was really not in a healthy relationship with my dad they would always fight when they were together so they just avoided each other all the time.  Later when my mom re-married I FINALLY had an example of a much healthier relationship.  I even like my moms husband more than my dad.  A lot of people try to make something dysfunctional work for the sake of their kid(s) but really if it's not working it's not working.  Of course this isn't something you want to do on a whim you want to take your time with this sort of decision.

Probably what's best is to try directly talking to your husband about it.  If he's not going to start abusing you for mentioning the issues you have then atleast tell him how you feel as communication can be the most helpful tool for fixing things.  Your husband shouldn't be going through your personal stuff he should trust you and you should be able to trust that he'll have faith in you too.  My ex gf (when we were still dating) went through my deleted e-mails while I was in the bath and I felt absolutely violated so I know how it feels.  I hated it and couldn't believe she would have such little faith in me.  Yes she was a sh#tty girlfriend and yes I was looking for someone better but I wasn't doing anything behind her back.  My ex girlfriend was a long term relationship but eventually it ended and I found someone MUCH better who's also been a very long term relationship and the best girlfriend I've ever had (my current girlfriend treats me so much better than anyone else I've ever dated and it feels so great!).  My ex girlfriend never treated me right and I'm so glad that I eventually found the strength to move on and find someone much better.

I'm not saying that it's impossible to make things work with your husband.  But you shouldn't be clinging onto something that's never going to work for the sake of your son as staying in a dysfunctional relationship will probably do more damage.

If I were her and my husband had a close personal female friend who started having feelings for him I'd trust me husband and have faith that he wouldn't lead her on.  I wouldn't go through my husbands e-mails that's basically saying you have zero trust in the person.  If you can't trust someone then you certainly should etiher have a serious talk to the person or move on with your life.  Those are the only two directions I could see this going.

He went through my inbox and went through all the things i had said to one of my close personal friends who had started having feelings for me. Everything got taken out of context and now my friend won't even talk to me  
Personally i respect privacy, BUT... Ask yourself, would you be happy, if your husband could have "close personal friend(female friend), who started having feelings..."?

Yeah.  Also the people who try to get people online to commit suicide and do all sorts of other terrible acts.  It really annoys me that these psychos actually can't find anything better to do than that.  You have to be a seriously pathetic individual to enjoy doing something like that.

Oh also the other thing that annoys me is people on the internet who refuse to put up with a single negative comment about them or their work.  These people absolutely freak out at you if you mention anything negative about things they're done.  It's like they think they're perfect and come to the internet to hide away from constructive criticism.

That was the point of the whole South Park episode.  The answer is "naggers", but he guesses something else.  The rest of the episode deals with race relations and why apologies for that sort of thing are mostly empty apologies, whether sincere or not.

I hate PC, but that statement alone is a bit indicative.  Euro 2012 kinda shows that these things aren't really understood in eastern Europe, but I would've thought it's closer to home across most of the US.

Hey what do I know?  I just thought it was a bit inconsiderate and in poor taste, like most of South Park to be honest.

I like how these boards are not exclusive to anyone, so seeing lightly intended stuff like that grates a bit to be honest and it's not great behaviour in my opinion.  Anyone super offended by it isn't exactly going to shout out, but I'd be surprised if I'm the only one that thought it was a bit off.

Hey that's unfair.  SF4?  His intricacies are pretty complex if you want to be a GOOD Ryu player.  I think Hawk is the easiest character to use.

Hawk has nightmare matchups where he has barely any chance of getting it. At high level, Hawk requires serious mind games and reads on his opponent. He can't just rely on basic zoning like Ryu can. Hawk is a VERY high risk, high reward character. All of Hawk's moves are taking a major gamble, and once the opponent gets away, that can be the end for Hawk if they play smart.

A vast majority of Ryu's matchups are either even, or in his favor, and he enjoys so many luxuries which most characters don't have. Shoryuken type moves are kinda ridiculous in SF4, the fact that they can just be FADC'd on block makes them even more mindless.

To reiterate, I don't say this out of anger, as I very rarely lose to Ryu players (I have a 95% win rate against Ryu with Honda), but more out of boredom. Too many people just pick the easy way out and choose Ryu, knowing they won't have many bad matchups, or have to work very hard to win. It wouldn't kill them to try something different, eh?


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: manuel on July 03, 2012, 10:31:07 PM
Not everybody is so competitive and they just use a character that's fun and easy to use. Just saying.  ;)
If you get bored that might be a sign you're playing too much. AWAAAAAAAAAH!!

I never played the newer games, but I also liked Ryu (because he's calm and humble and stuff). However, I used Ken instead, because he was faster (although Ken as a character is a douche).  ;)

I play SF4 A LOT, but the thing is that it's a game with almost 40 characters, and when 9 out of 10 of my opponents use the same character... it just makes me wonder why less people are willing to try something a bit different. Not to mention every Ryu player I fight has the same exact playstyle, running the the corner and throwing Hadoukens. Which makes sense because I play as E. Honda (who would want a flying sumo wrestler to get close to them?) but still, it's overwhelming how many people pick the same character in a game with so much depth and variety.

I know it's insane but the boy refuses to poop when he's not at home so therefore because he doesn't smell like poop he doesn't get changed. Also kidlet usually requires some distraction while you sneak food into him while he's out and about.
Dare i mention to my mother how hard it is raising the child at times i get the lecture from my mum saying she did it with 3 kids usually i end up with some pretty severe teeth marks in my tongue! Though it's amusing to see my mum get all huffy when i say i was raised by feral cats (which is fairly true my early years were spent on a farm with lots of cats and waaaay more mice than cats)

Also when i ask my husband to do something simple and he gets distracted by his own bullshit he doesn't do what i asked him to do.

-The "Ghetto Culture", when it's an INSULT to hard working African Americans everywhere
-Parents who don't have a clue how to rear their children("My son is not a delinquent. He's just misunderstood....)
-The government's treatment of us middle and lower class.

Those are my top five.....

Yeah, I'm generally a large cartoon guy. But I can't get into MLP. Just seems so...eh.

Mind you, I have no beef with people who watch it. But when you shove it in my face for the sake of trying to make your obsession with a girls cartoon seem justified, then I got a problem with it.

Ah, Bronies. What will forever be the scum of the earth, and the ultimate joke and ridicule of the Internet. I have no problem with the fact that they watch MLP, (although I hate MLP, I watch plenty of shows that most would consider "weird"), but becoming part of some stupid little group, just because some other people watch it? And giving yourself a label, as if it's your only personality trait... it's hard not to feel superior to these people.

And the fact that they shove their garbage down everyone's throat, commenting on stuff that has NOTHING to do with Ponies, with Pony-related comments. Just ensures their status of bottom-dwelling wastes of air.

Perhaps the funniest part is that they consider themselves to be better than furries, and often bash what furries do, despite the fact that Bronies encapsulate every negative trait of the prototypical furry, dialed up to 11. And then some.

Oh yeah, and the animation in MLP is fucking horrendous. But then again they're catering to an audience who has no standards for quality, so that's to be expected.

Same here! Powerpuff Girls is pretty good, and I liked the recent anime adaptation of it as well. I don't have a problem with anyone liking something which they aren't the target audience for, my hatred for Bronies comes from their elitist nature towards anyone who doesn't watch MLP, and how they shove it down everyone's throat.

It doesn't matter who you vote for here. They are all puppets. The real people who run this country are the financial institutions, the oil industry, and the military. When we as a nation want something, we cannot get it. Yet when any of the three I mentioned want something, they get it. Bush and his cabinet should be tried for war crimes for forcing us into a war under false pretenses(he said that Iraq was not only partially responsible for 9/11, but that they had weapons of mass destruction, which were later proven false), but you will NEVER see that happen. Yet, if the leader of a country that we don't consider "free" were to do the same thing, they'd be tried, convicted, AND executed. Look at Saddam. I'm no foreign sympathizer. Not by a LONG shot. But, it just saddens me that our country has turned into this and the principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights no longer exist.

I hate how self-centered almost everyone is. We as a society have been teaching people that their feelings and opinions matter. It may sound harsh, but they don't. So instead of teaching them how to actually make progress, we teach them how to complain about the lack of progress, and how to assume someone better than them will do it.

That's another thing that annoys me. The fact that there are people who are smarter than I and can do things I will never be able to. For whatever reason, I can't accept that.

Beating Battletoads was a huge accomplishment. I felt like I earned the privilege to be able to say that I did it.

Then along comes somebody claiming they beat it with 2 players. I assumed anyone who said that was a liar. And not too long ago I find out that there's a glitch that kills off the second player on the second to last stage. ::) I read this was fixed in the PAL version (I'm pretty sure this person didn't play that one).

I beat both the NES, and Genesis version, but this was a couple years ago. I don't remember, but I've heard conflicting sources on this. I heard some say the Mega Drive port was easier, whilst some said it was glitchier, therefore making it harder.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you

That damn chase part is just as hard.  I imagine MegaDrive port has better collision detection though and is probably easier as a result.

Perhaps. Care to explain the more adult point of view? I understand the effects it had on both the US and the world as a whole, and I understand that people died in some of the worst ways imaginable.

Much in the same way that I'll never really understand 90 year olds crying on December 7th every year, I suspect you'll never really understand what September 11th means to those of us old enough to have lived it. Especially those of us in the New York metro area, we will never be able to "get over it".


Title: Re: Something that annoys you

It's like I say every year, I can understand a quick memorial for the victims, but what really pisses me off is how they bastardize it every year in the media. The families of the victims have wanted peace for years and every year, it gets denied to them. Imagine losing your loved one to a tragedy and every year seeing it blared on every front page, television, and magazine in the country. Doesn't feel good, does it?

I agree completely with petik1 and I'm pleased as punch to find someone else who shares my same view point on the matter instead of being called an unpatriotic asshole because I know a couple of people who lost loved ones that day and I know what they have to deal with on a daily basis.

A lot of people seem to place emphasis on the day itself, rather than the tragedy that took place. I guess it's just easier to say "9/11" rather than "terrorist attacks on the world trade center". Either way, I agree with Petik on this one.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: L___E___T on September 12, 2012, 11:33:03 AM
Having visited ground zero a couple of months after the attacks and the little chapel nearby, I will never forget this either.  You don't have to be American, you just have to bear in mind that this was a terrible thing that happened by a dark force that if it's not extremists, will be something else.  We should remember it not out of nationalistic pride, but as a reminder that there will always be dark forces at work that good people need to be aware of and combat so that they do not take over like they nearly did in the 40s.

Personally, having visited that chapel and read every messgae to a loved one lost, it's something that will never leave me.  Having seen skyscrapers that looked like Godzilla took a swipe at them, it made me realise that if this can happen, what other worse events do we need to look out for and help to prevent?

I think it's really poor form to try and say people need to 'get over it' or forget it - we shouldn't forget and 'never forget' is a mantra used here for WW1 and WW2, something I don't think you can really understand the gravity of until you are mature. Most 18 year olds, myself included haven't reached that awareness of their own mortality yet.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Nightstar699 on September 12, 2012, 11:54:51 AM
I still think that moments of silence are a terrible way to "show respect" for something that happened. Seems counterproductive, if they want to reflect on a tragedy... then they should have a discussion or something,  but from what Petik said, his school just keeps having these moments of silence which seem pointless to me.

Edit: And I hate the term "9/11" with a passion but eh, I guess that's what it's known as, now.

That is true. It's just kinda annoying in some ways, I know someone who was born on September 11th, and he says whenever he tells people when his birthday is, they feel sorry for him and immediately draw it to the terrorist attacks.

I value life more now than I did just a few months ago, and while none of my personal experiences can relate to any aspect of 9/11, I can safely say that I understand why it's important and that it should never be forgotten.  I don't do anything to honor (read: remember) it necessarily, but I don't think anyone should really have to.  When I went to school yesterday, no one really said anything about it.  Kind of strange, actually.

Whenever I claim not to like Makoto, people say it's because I wasn't into Third Strike, and if I was, I'd "understand". I just don't like her. But then again I find it hard to like any character besides Honda and Balrog.

I hate Bison's all-round moveset.  standing MK and HK that have almost no recovery, the fact he can turtle and LK, LK, LK scissors all day - it's easy pressure.
The dive kick/fist shenanigans are hard to respond to, but I generally get annoyed that he can et two MKs out during a level one focus even.

Generally, I despise all charge characters - but particularly the three bosses and Guile.

Hah, sounds like drivers in both our cities go to the same driving schools   ;D. 

What's really bad here (at least right now) is that there's construction all over the city's bypasses, with work zone speeds down to 45 mph.  If you get pulled over, it's a $375 minimum fine in a work zone.  99.9% of drivers here go at least 10 over the posted limit regardless, with many topping 20+ over.  Even the highway patrol cars tend to 10-15 over   ???.  Given that I don't want a ticket that'll chew up two months of disposable income, I try to do the speed limit when I can't avoid the highways, but it feels like I'm sitting still as cars whiz by me .  There're some real nutters on our roads!

People are idiots.  I'm surprised every time I make it to work and back and manage to dodge all the idiots trying to crash into me in their idiocy.

A year ago or so, I'm sitting their stopped at a red light and some idiot just slams into me from behind at 50K/hr..
Course her license is suspended, she has no insurance..  Wish I could say I was surprised and it must be an off case... But thats par for the course around here far as I can tell

She's also in a minivan with kids in the back.

Oh man, I had almost the exact same thing happen to me about 4 1/2 years ago.  I was at a metered on-ramp to the highway, waiting for the light to go green when pickup truck slammed into me at about 30-40mph.  His license wasn't suspended, but he had no insurance.  I couldn't believe it.  It was a 3 lane on-ramp with NO other cars waiting at the light.  The dude could've swerved around me with no problems, but nope, just right into the back end of my car.  The state made him pay me like $2000 to cover the cost of my car, and my insurance had a policy that covered my medical, so it was mostly cool, but my car was pretty much shot   :'(.

Also back in 2004, I had a mental breakdown over losing at the last stage on Gradius for the NES, and my mom took the cartridge away from me and wouldn't let me have it back since it made me violent and stuff.... I never got that cartridge back, and we moved so it's probably long gone buy now. This annoys me. At least I have it on Famicom. This doesn't annoy me.

LOL few years ago(not in Japan) indian taxi driver kicked my ass, when i waited for green traffic light. It was quite hard - i hit a car in front of me and lady came out and started complaining to me... I said "hey, look at my car". What happend next LOL the friend of indian guy started complaining to me, that my car has no warrant of fitness(LOL i passed it same morning) and i thought, f**k you gave blow job to each other without mind of traffic lights or so. My car was stil drivable, so i slowly went back home, took off number plates, did de-rego and called "free tow-away" service. End of story. And i even don't hate indian taxi drivers LOL How can?

Both Backup Ram and Ten no Koe Bank are completely empty. What sucks almost more, is that also my Ys I & II saves are gone and I was about 3/4 through Book II :( Dunno if I'll ever find the motivation again to grind all the way back to where I left off those games (CF2's battle system is tedious to put it nicely)

That's a shame. I remember blowing a fuse once after I forgot to hold in reset as I turned off my NES after a long game of LoZ.

The Japanese voices for American and English characters on SSF4 sound ridiculous. And as most people turn the voices to ALL Japanese, this can make watching SF videos painful sometimes.
Japanese Guile: SONIBEW. SONIBEW. SONIBEW.
Japanese Cammy: Can of sprite, can of sprite!
Japanese Cody: He just sounds like a 10 year for some reason in his Japanese voice.

Etc. This annoys me.

Video game reproductions really bug the crap out of me these days. 

I used to think they were a fairly innocuous thing back when I originally got into collecting NES stuff, and it was kind of neat to have physical carts of unreleased games.  I even had a fairly significant repro collection at one point.  Now, though, I think it's really gotten out of hand (especially on a certain other Nintendo message board).  You have folks a lot of folks taking the hard work of other individuals (who's hard work essentially rips off another person's hardwork and IP [but that's not really as pertinent]) and making a LOT of money off them.

Case in point:
http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=22&threadid=75754 (http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=22&threadid=75754)
http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=34&threadid=85829 (http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=34&threadid=85829)

I mean, this is a repro of a game that Square-Enix originally sent a C&D letter to shut down, and here this guy is making carts of the 99% done ROM (which he didn't help to program) and making a lot of cash on it.  It just seems really wrong to me, and it bugs me a lot that there's a fair amount of this going on there with this and other games.

I have more opinions on the matter, but I think that's probably best left for a different thread at a later date   :-X


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: nintendodork on October 05, 2012, 01:29:04 AM
I agree with you.  People who sell reproductions should only charge for the cost of the materials they used and then some for the time it took to make them.  They really shouldn't be getting that much profit for something they really had no part in doing.

Then again people could just learn to make their own repros right? 

See, and that's just it.  If people were making these repros for themselves, I probably wouldn't say boo.  I mean, it's still illegal to download the ROM, but at the end of the day, it's hard to make an argument for personal use on repros of dead systems.  It's the (nominally minor) commercialization of it that bugs me.  It take it out of the realm of "fan-made" and puts $$$ all over it, and that's what bugs me.  It's taking someone else's work (translation/programming/etc) and turning a profit for your own benefit.  Icky-icky.

Reddit/retrogameswap. Back when I first got started this punk created two fake accounts to verify trades with him, since I had none trade etiquette meant I needed to send my games first. He spent the next several weeks giving me bs excuses like the fedex machine at his mom's office being broken. Finally I reported him to the mods and he was banned but I didn't drop it.

I filed out a mail fraud form against him but literally nothing came from that, frustrated I told him I would involve the police if he didn't either return my games or uphold his end. He said he was saving his lunch money. When he obviously didn't ship I called his local police department and the patrolman said he would call his mother.

I got a message from the patrol men saying he spoke with the mom, and said the matter was resolved, the twerp said he mailed my games back but that was two weeks ago. The police said I'm basically ****ed unless I drive all the way to New Jersey and file a claim because apparently nearly having 100%a irrefutable proof isn't enough for them to just go to his house and reclaim my property, I actually have to drive to the station and fill out a report. It irritates me beyond measure.

I hate fleamarket price gougers.  If someone price gouges and I am interested in something, sometimes I will just attempt to get a small reduction in price, such as $2-3 or whatever.  Not asking half price or crazy shit like that.  If the person absolutely refuses, I usually just walk as the price is often not the biggest concern to me.  It is the principle behind it, people should be open to negotiation on this sort of thing and if you can't even budge for a buck or two, then I probably don't need your wares bad enough.

Yeah, it's especially annoying when they have no idea what the items are worth.  There was a guy selling some GameBoy titles, and he had Wizard and Warriors X.  He wanted $20 for it.  I offered $10 and he just grunted "no".  So I walked around the rest of the market and came back to him before heading home.  I offered him $10 again, he grunted "no" again, and then I went home and bought it off of eBay for $5 shipped.  I swear people like that must go to flea markets and never manage to sell off any of their junk :D

This is my first "real" time with snow, and it kind of sucks. You can't go anywhere, it freezes together and makes a giant sheet of ice, and when it first fell it was all powdery, so you couldn't even make snowballs.

Hehe, sounds like Chicago drivers to me. 

My annoyance of the day is drivers who forget that you must drive a little differently when there is snow and ice on the ground.  This is not dry pavement where you can whip around corners with impunity!

Generally I respond  with the former, or some variation thereof, but it's annoying that people act in such a way in the first place, as if just because someone lists something "for offer", they're required to accept any and all offers no matter what.

I don't think auction sniping is cheating or wrong or anything, I just think it takes some of the fun out of the auction process.  The auctions at eBay are pretty much all Vickrey Auctions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vickrey_auction) now, except they show you a number that's labeled as the "highest bid", even though it's not due to proxy bidding and snipers.

Snipes get you the same stuff you were going to win anyway at less cost.  Snipes don't work on Buy it Now listings, so I won't feel bad for using them and maximising my budget.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Epic_Lotus on April 22, 2013, 06:52:08 PM
I use snipes on occasion.  Mostly just when I know I'll forget about an auction closing and I'm really sure I want to buy it.  I stopped using them with frequency because I sort of figure that if I don't care enough to be online when an item closes, I probably don't need it that badly anyways.

These days, I prefer BIN's anyways.  I've lost too many items on regular auctions because someone went way over market value.  I'd rather someone just list an item (maybe with a Best Offer), and if it's a fair price, I'll buy it.

Sure, but when I bid on stuff I generally bid to win (unless I'm trying to snag a deal).  So, it avoids the final price being driven up for me, only to win it in the end.  Of course, this works both ways - sellers can utilise snipes as proxies and/or reserves if they want to take that risk.  Or they just just set a starting bid/BIN amount.  I won't feel bad for using snipes, I think everyone should use them personally.

Its like, hell, if you're a smoker, buy yourself a damn pack of cigarettes.  The first day he worked there and asked for one, I figured, why not. Then he asked to use my lighter.

I have the high score on Galaga at the local movie theater, it's similar to the one you posted. But for whatever reason this machine lets you fire much faster than the Famicom version, so I'm not proud of it or anything. Perhaps it's just a difference between the arcade and FC version.

Funny you  should ask! I downloaded it and two other recommended anti-virus programs for my Ubuntu OS, but I haven't been able to actually run any of the three programs. Makes me even more suspicious that shenanigans are happening on the computer; reminds me of the bad old days on Windows where I'd get a virus so bad that it would be able to successfully attack and sabotage my anti-virus programs.

A comrade of mine was whining about the difficulty of a boss in some game, I asked him to elaborate as to what made this boss so difficult, and he replied with this...

"They programmed shit that was too cheap in the game, there ya go."

Can't tell if I'm being trolled or not, but either way that annoys me.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: L___E___T on July 18, 2013, 11:26:28 AM
I'd say if cheap but predictable and readable, then no excuse.  If cheap combined with unreadable/predictable then that's a somewhat credible excuse.

An example of a cheap but predictable and readable final boss is Vega aka M.Bison in SF2.  An example of a cheap but unpredictable/unreadable final boss is Hiroki in Shinobi.

In short, grossly difficult but fair is fine.  Quite difficult while also unfair is not fine.

Vega aka M.Bison in SF2.

Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Nightstar699 on July 18, 2013, 11:19:42 PM
I actually find the non-Japanese names more fitting... M. Bison sounds like a good name for a ruler, Vega sounds Spanish, and Balrog... well it sounds kinda intimidating. It seems fitting for his mean tough-guy personality.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: L___E___T on July 18, 2013, 11:37:01 PM
I have to say I prefer the JP names.  Bison fits with the whole buffalo thing, Balrog sounds like a winged creature from hell (LOTR) and Vega is, is, who knows :)

He's supposed to be a Western orphan from Thailand, so the name doesn't make much sense to me.

Gouki sounds much better than Akuma.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on July 18, 2013, 11:37:59 PM
M.Bison always sounded odd to me.
Vega works as a Spanish name.
As for Balrog... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66imrid90UM)


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: P on July 19, 2013, 09:37:15 AM
I agree with LET that the Japanese names makes more sense. Mike Bison is an obvious parody on Mike Tyson and thus fits the boxer better. I think he retained his original name in the English version of the first Street Fighter anyway.

As for Vega it's the name of a star that's featured in the Chinese story "The Weaver Girl and the Cowherd". However Vega is represented by Orihime (the weaver girl) so it fits a girl better I think. BTW as a kid I initially thought Balrog/Vega (the Spanish guy) was a girl, and since Vega ends with an "A" it made even more sense.

Gouki and Akuma, both kind of means demon and both makes no sense if you don't know the Japanese words, so I don't follow the localizing staff's logic here.

I suppose that's because Ryukenden might be hard to pronounce for one that isn't used to Japanese, while they still wanted to keep it Japanese sounding. The fact that it's called Gaiden even though it's not a spin-off title wouldn't matter too much to a non-Japanese audience.

Ironic that most people mispronounce the title regardless :)  Honestly, Ryukenden is a longer title than it ideally should be.  I'm somewhat surprised it didn't just end up being called Dragon Ninja.  Oh wait... :)

Heh, Japanese is very consistent with it's spelling and pronunciation rules, and it's spelling is very similar to it's IPA equivalents (it's basically pronounced as it's spelled with very few exceptions). How can they possibly pronounce that wrong? Ninja Gey-den maybe? ;D

Ryukenden is only 6 syllables long (ryu u ke n de n). But I think Japanese words tend to become very long compared to many other languages.

People that tell you how you should price your stuff really annoy me.  One guy on ebay (and also a user on some other gaming forums) told me to fuck myself after I declined his best offer on some goods.  I guess some people just can't understand why I would rather keep a rare game than sell it for pizza money, and this applies mostly to things that are so obscure, who knows if you will ever come across another one or not.

Then on the other end of the spectrum, it annoys me when people price their goods at a price way above market value, to try to trick the uninformed, as that is just as bad too.

Pricing can be tricky.  If it is something that is never seen for sale, why not list high and see where it goes? Your customers (or lack of) will tell you in the prices are right or not.  But if it is something that everyone sells on ebay for $15, don't try to sell it for $50.  Just my two cents on an issue that annoys me.

@fcgamer:

There are and always will be people in this community that want something for nothing. I can understand where they're coming from, to a point. I can't resist interesting stuff for cheap, either. I've bought a couple of things off of you in the $10 range, and sadly passed on some other interesting things mostly because of the higher prices. I'm not insulting your prices; honestly, your stuff is so damned obscure that I don't even know what most of it is worth. Most of us just don't have enough money to get all the games that interest us.

I've prodded a seller on price a few times over the years. It's usually because their prices are far higher than fair value, and I can only make that assumption if I know what the fair value is. But there's really no excuse to hurl insults at a guy just because he wants more for a game than you're willing to pay for it. That's just the point where I walk away.

300AUD per month? Easy. #1 there is winter. #2 she have baby. #3 using heater(heat pump). #4 water heated up in hot water cylider(permanently connected to the mains, keeping 60C 24/7). Once summer come back, power bill will dropped few times. It's just a life.

I just racked up a $200 (US) electric bill. It's my first summer in my new house, and summers here are pretty toasty so I've had the AC working pretty much 24/7. I'm sure next month's will be just as bad. I might have to figure out some alternatives for next year. I also had $200 heating bills in the winter (which are also pretty harsh here). I'm probably going to be upgrading my insulation next year if I can afford it.

Yeah, I can agree with some stuff here, especially cyclists who think the rules of the road don't apply to them. Just gotta keep in mind the benefits of cycling that you don't get from other sorts of transportation or recreation.

To me it's still way ahead of its time. (I look at bicycles like some people look at porn. No, its not the kind of activity that involves hands, just eyes.)  http://www.reddit.com/r/Bikeporn/

One thing rarely brought up by people who enjoy biking (and/or running) alongside the roadway is the exposure to dust particles and pollutants from vehicles that are breathed deep into the lungs while exercising. Doing so hardly qualifies as a beneficial, smart or healthy thing to do near traffic and is in fact quite the opposite. Don't take my word for it, though, feel free to look it up yourself.

At the risk of annoying people who like biking, I find having to overtake them annoying. It's especially bad when you're on a main road and there's a lot of traffic coming from the other direction. :-\

At the risk of annoying people who like biking, I really can't stand cyclists generally.  They may be worse here than elsewhere, but they're more often than not arrogant, obstructive, abusive and intolerant of anything and anyone else on the road.

I don't agree with generalising, but when nine times out of ten what you come into contact with fits the usual stereotype, I tend to stand by it until proven wrong.

Of course, there are many more rude, horrifying and scarier drivers than there are cyclists!


Title: Re: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: Magicantian on July 30, 2013, 07:38:14 PM
I think just about any where you go, there's bad cyclists as well as bad drivers. It's a shame people can be so reckless, but some countries are really bad with their traffic and I'm glad I don't have to deal with the lawless roads of say India. (Plenty of YouTube videos showing what I mean)

I don't know if I can agree with the whole chemical, dust particle argument though. No matter what we're doing, we're exposed to harmful things daily and you can get a lung full, even while in a Car. If you live in a City or even if you don't; But lets say NY for example and a building is on fire, you could be walking down the street 2 blocks away and breathe in who knows what. (Happened to me once, very strange smelling stuff, hope it wasn't asbestos). Tried my best to avoid that area.

You inhale more deeply while exercising and take more breaths (http://www.bikeradar.com/fitness/article/health-air-pollution-the-invisible-threat-28264/), which is why it causes more damage--greater exposure.  ;)

Either way, people will do whatever they want. I'll continue to just laugh to myself when I hear about all the health benefits, especially when coupled with the obsessive-compulsive behavior most cyclists (and runners) exhibit, pressure on the prostate from the bike seat which leads to ED and potentially prostate cancer (for males, anyways), systemic/cardiovascular inflammation and adrenal fatigue from over-doing cardio all the time (re: exercising when you should be resting), and other stuff like wasted muscle mass and lowered testosterone levels. That's why hardcore cyclists are always in a jolly good mood, just like all the obsessive compulsive runners who overdo running...look like emaciated stick figures with grumpy dispositions...especially the older folks. Young people can get away with it for awhile but it WILL catch up with you as you age and your body's recovery rate declines.

Well, I live in Portland, Oregon, so I've seen my fair share of self-righteous bikers.

Personally, I take public transportation (bus or tram) to and from work, ride my bike occasionally, and drive occasionally.

My main issue is with people who make biking a lifestyle and talk shit about people who drive cars instead. Everyone has got their own reasons to do what they do, but painting biking as a "save the world", "look at me, I'm being so healthy", and "you're as asshole if you drive" type of activity wins zero points from me. If you like it, do it. If you don't, don't. Just don't make it out to be something greater than it really is. I'm not saying anyone on here is doing that, but there are definitely people who do.

Can totally agree with waiting for packages in the mail, It's like getting presents.

I'm not worried about pollutants in any difference because I ride. I imagine it should be a concern for someone whom has a hereditary issue with their lungs and breathing though, like asthma and such. 

I live in a pretty built up area, but there's not many bike lanes. I tend to ride on the Side Walk as much as possible if there's no bike lane but make sure with your local laws that your allowed to.

@ericj

Everything we do (or don't do) has positive and negative effects on our health. If I weren't a bicyclist, I'd be a typically sedentary American. I'm putting myself at risk for some things doing so, but I'm still getting exercise. When it comes down to it, the exercise is doing me more good than harm. Our species didn't evolve to sit behind a desk or on a couch all day. The sedentary lifestyle that comes with our modern culture is extremely detrimental to our health, and those who stay active do statistically live longer, healthier lives. It's good for our hearts, and it relieves stress.

I'm sorry you've dealt with self-absorbed tools on bikes, but don't paint all cyclists with the same brush. I'm hardly a health nut, or a bike supremacist. I am someone who rides a bike almost every day. It's a logical, efficient, enjoyable, and cheap form of transportation for me. I realize there are others who could not practice this lifestyle, and I don't begrudge them for it.

Whoo, what color did you get? One thing you can do that would relatively cost effective, would be to change the locks for sure. If you're also getting phone calls that put trouble on your mind, if you have a smart phone there's a number of applications out there to record calls automatically.

You could also, depending on the law in your area, get a relatively cheap stun gun you can keep under your pillow at night, it might put your mind to rest somewhat.

One self defense technique against men is a swift strike to the adams apple, sure to knock anyone down for more than a minute.

I got a barbie pink DSI. I've already changed the locks, Stun guns are illegal but I do know how to defend myself as i was a bouncer for 5 years :D I know the ex wouldn't do anything while I have the kidlet. but he's attempting to take custody and since he's abused my son i'm very concerned about him having contact with him. My ex is a slimy asshole though he's already decreased the response time of police to my house by 20 minutes with his crap and each time they take his word for what happened and don't even bother hearing me out.  It is possible that my son has autism or is somewhere on the spectrum and actually requires special care instead of being beaten for being "naughty" but good thing is he starts pre-school on monday so he can learn how to be with other kids and the pre school will help me with being able to effectively manage his behaviour. These things his father would completely dismiss as he flat out refused to let me get him tested for autism (There is a genetic link to it in my family) and refused to let him go to pre-school. But he's gone and hopefully he won't be able to take him from me

Collectors are definitely an insane breed. Even if our partner likes vintage video gaming, it still seems common for our excesses in this hobby to be met with at least limited acceptance.

Immaturity over the internet. Story time!

So I'm a member of a Facebook group dedicated to video games here in my hometown. This guy comes on to ask for a game recommendation. He's just purchased a third-party NES controller shaped like a flight joystick, and he'd like to know if there's any good flight simulator games he should pick up. I come in mainly to recommend Laser Invasion, as I think it's by far the most entertaining game with that perspective on the NES.

But another guy has responded ahead of me with "1942", and the original poster has responded with "yeah, but isn't that more of a topdown [overhead] shooter?" I decide to add my two cents: Yes, 1942 is an overhead shooter, so that's not really what the OP is asking for. Oh, and 1942 is also a crappy game. If the OP wants a good overhead shooter, 1943 is much better.

This evidently pissed off "Mr. 1942". He responds to me, "I like that game. Dick." Ok, I know Mr. 1942. I've met him; I've actually been to his house and bought doubles off of him before. We're not close, obviously (not even FB "friends"). But I know this is an adult here.

So, I state my case on 1942: the music is terrible, the level design is monotonous, and the graphics are horribly dull. 1943 is superior to it in every way, and Sky Shark would also be a preferable option.

Mr. 1942: "What are you a video game reviewer?"

"You're offended I'm offering my opinion on a video game on a video game forum?" (My actual response to him, verbatim.) Really? You gotta be kidding me!

Mr. 1942: "This isn't a video game forum, it's a buy and trade board"

Ok, that's some obvious bullshit. He's inventing technicalities to dismiss me. But I go ahead and re-read the name of the group and the "about" description. Funny... the words "buy" and "sell" (nor any similar words) are anywhere to be found in the framing of the group. In fact, the about only says "any thing video game related." So I called him out on that, and I cut to the chase: he's just mad because I said I don't like a game that he recommended. How unbelievably petty!

In conclusion, I told him to grow up. Is that condescending of me? Sure. Does he deserve it, being a 20-something man acting like a 12-year old keyboard warrior? Afraid so.

His last response: To simply repeat his claim that I was out of line because it's only a buy/sell board. Because that was so convincing the first time he tried that!

Idiot!

I realize we're all overgrown children in the game-collecting scene, to some extent. We all get too excited about 20-year-old toys, and blow entirely too much money on them. Why? Because that inner ten-year-old in us still experiences joy in playing these old games (and admiring their goofy cover art, etc.). But we're also not ten anymore, and there's just no valid reason for adults to still be petty in such a juvenile form (even in a Peter Pan Club like our hobby).

nerdynebraskan, I despise those types of people.  Some people just have to be right, even when they're not, so I just try to stay out of it these days.

I hate getting up early in the morning, and I hate waiting for packages to arrive.  And I hate that I twisted my ankle, so now I can't run with my friends during our weekly meet up.  :(

Oh how I agree with you Nerdynebraskan. Not being able to admit you are wrong is very immature indeed, and totally different from defending your pride or something.

I logged into Facebook for the first time, and I was alternating between morbidly curiosity and dread about whether there'd be a fresh batch of drama waiting for me. When I checked the FB group, the entire thread that I'd been arguing with Mr. 1942 in had been deleted. Considering that he's an admin of the group, I have to wonder whether he chose to erase history rather than own up to his immaturity. That's something else that annoys me, to stay in theme with the thread.

Also, getting a new game in the mail and not having time to play it. Stupid adulthood! Also, I'm probably too busy today to give it its due. In related news, I received your package yesterday, MWK. Feedback will be left after I get the chance to play it.

Post by: nintendodork on December 12, 2013, 05:33:45 PM
To be fair, I think you could have skipped out on saying "it's a crappy game and sucks," and instead just said in your first post why you prefer 1943 over 1942.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: nerdynebraskan on December 13, 2013, 03:35:00 PM
Keep in mind that the thread was started to ask for recommendations. I didn't want the poor guy to blow $5 on a game, just to find it terribly disappointing. So I did need to counter that recommendation. Also, I really wasn't there to recommend 1943, which the original poster already had. He wanted a flight simulator, which was not a genre that translated well to the NES. I was quick to mention Laser Invasion, not because I think it's an incredible game, but simply because it's the only representative of its genre that isn't incredibly mediocre. Hell, Top Gun: Second Mission is probably the second-best flight simulator on the NES, and that's about as bad as 1942.

Somewhat off topic, but I guess this would be right up his street then?

http://www.retrocollect.com/News/limited-reproduction-run-of-unreleased-nintendo-nes-flight-simulator-chuck-yeagers-fighter-combat.html

Sounds to me like you didn't do anything wrong, but I would have predicted something of a fallout - I think it's fair to say that if you trashed his opinion and he's a mod/admin, something would happen.  
It absolutely shouldn't, but that's human nature.

I'm not afraid of giving my opinion on things like that here in case someone dirtied it, but if for example I said my favourite game was something like Ninja Turtles (out of sentimentality) and someone else then pointed out legitimitately why it's not well made or on par with other action games, I wouldn't get carried away with emotions on a gaming forum, we're all adults as you say.

That kind of things is unfortunately rampant on NA, which ironically is probably why we are lucky and fortunate to have a nice atmosphere here - anything like that gets shut down pretty quick.  There's no excuse for childish rudeness, even if you're a child to be honest.

@ LET

Yeah, that might be relevant, but I don't think this guy is a serious-enough collector to be chasing after repros. I think he's more of a casual retro gamer. The link only seems to point toward a limited-edition run by the Nolan brothers through Nintendo Age. To be honest, those kind of "limited-edition" repros always kind of bugged me; just seems like an excuse to push people into buying them immediately and for whatever price you want. (Which I suppose is also pretty annoying, again tying this back to the core theme of the thread... hey, I'm trying!)

@ security

Health care in the US is so bad it's scandalous. I'd dare say particularly tragic examples like maternal mortality go beyond simply "annoying".

I just read that really quickly as 'tramps in leggings' then pictured them in my head, wondering why you would get annoyed at that?  I am not sure why but when I read or hear things I often picture a mental photograph of them before it feels like I've even digested the words themselves.  It's involuntary, a reflex.  Some of my friends will say things, for example when I'm eating, knowing that I'll picture something unpleasant.  That can be annoying.

Simple things: You aren't a gamer cuz you play 'E' or 'E10+' rated games. You suck cuz you like Wii U. Your a Satanist cuz you read 'Harry Potter' books. Things that really bother me: Your a rape apologist cuz you aren't a feminist. You hate all gay people because you don't completely support gay marriage. You have the wrong religion. You are a transphobe because you aren't trans. Your a pussy cuz you don't like to lie. These things really fucking annoy me.

Not having a girlfriend  :(

Oh believe me, this is a good thing, not a bad one  ;)  It seems like my wallet is always drained down, even to the point where I thought it would be good to take a second job, two nights a week.  At first I thought that maybe I was just spending too much money on games but I figured it out one time and the amount was a lot less compared to the cost spent on nice dinners, gifts, everything else.

Then there comes the nagging, the controlling and manipulating, the paranoia about whether you are seeing other girls or not, just because you randomly talked to someone on the bus or at church.  Believe me, if you have a few close bros, a few beers and some games, you are set.

According to your godparents, 'statistics' show that 9 out of 10 "Blayne"s are dicks. It's also fact and basic logic. I mean, it's true. All people with this one name are asses and freaks. I mean its logic. Just because I didn't like a guy in high school with this name, anyone that I will ever meet in my lifetime that have this name are assholes.

"Kids" these days annoy me...I mean adults, but the ones who are maybe 18 or 20 or whatever.

I went into a shop this afternoon, and I saw a few badly sunfaded Game Boy Color boxes in the display case.  It was quite hard to see what they had, but I did see an unlicensed game there.  It was one I already had (or it might have been a hack of one I already had) but I still thought I would pick up an extra copy if the price was moderately reasonable.  There were two guys at the shop, an older man and his son, and I asked the older man if I could see the game and what not.  He pointed at the younger "kid", said told him to take care of me, then he left.  I guess maybe the young guy was taking over the shop for his dad, like so many Taiwanese children do when they come of age.

Well I ask the guy for the price, and he looks at the box, finds the old price sticker on it, and tells me that was the price.  I mention to him that the game was about ten years old, and that there was a HUGE layer of dust on the thing...it probably hadn't been touched in years.  He just looked at me and said, "So?"  I said that it was quite rediculous to charge full price now, and he didn't say anything, just put it back to sit there for another ten years. 

Then I asked the kid if they had any Famicom games.  The display case was quite hard to examine, and there were some games in the back, so who knows if they had anything else of interest.  Well the guy didn't have a clue what the Famicom was!  I honestly couldn't believe it, and finally just gave up.

Sometimes I just don't understand the thoughts that go peoples' heads.  That guy had the opportunity to make a sale and clear out some "junk" that will probably never sell, otherwise, and he would rather just take it to his grave.  It just doesn't make sense to me, I guess he is just a poor salesperson, young, inexperienced, and moderately stupid.

That is definitely annoying, Dave. I've had similar, if less dramatic, experiences with stores, too. There are some greedy boneheads out there that would rather wait forever for the right sucker to come along and pay full-price for whatever they've got. My local game store has rented out warehouse space above their storefront so they can better hoard all the stuff that they buy in. I just don't see the point in paying rent to hold onto hundreds of junk SNES sports games, just so you can sell five or six a year for $8 apiece on your Ebay store. (Not to mention the wages of all the workers who have to store all that junk.)


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: L___E___T on May 10, 2014, 02:34:19 PM
Some people just want a store, despite the fact that it will never make money and will more likely lose money.  Some people are not driven, are lazy or just set in their ways and don't understand core business principles.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 10, 2014, 03:04:49 PM
I don't know how often that would be the case, LET. That does accurately describe a record store here in town, though. The owner is apparently independently wealthy and doesn't actually need to make money from the business. The guy's just enough of a music junkie that I think he loves having a place where people will bring him rare records and give him a chance to talk their ear off about how much he knows about music. But shopkeepers like him are rare, in my experience.

The game store I mentioned in my last post is very much a business trying to maximize its profits. They're just so desperate to get that cash that their philosophy is basically one of making top dollar off every item that ever leaves their store. That can often be foolish, as they have piles of junky games and movies collecting dust. A lot of people I talk to don't even like to go in there; people tend to dislike and distrust businesses with reputations for high prices. The irony is I think it would be more profitable for them to just have bargain bins for the crap and just try to turn it over quickly. Faster turnover of merchandise, less labor for the staff, and more people coming into the store looking for a cheap impulse buy. But nah, that'd be stupid. Let's just put that Ken Griffey Baseball up for $6, because we'll make a killing off the sucker who desperately wants that game enough to pay that... who cares if we wait two years and pile up 50 more copies of it?

I totally agree with you.  For me, attitude also plays a factor.  I've definitely purchased items here and there for my collection, which were not steals by any means, but were still fair prices.  And the sellers were willing to knock a few bucks off the price, since the games were so old.  Sometimes it would only be a dollar or two, but hey, they're trying, and I know they had been losing money on the stuff as well, in some cases.  So this doesn't bother me, as I get a game I had been looking for (for a fair price), and get a small discount, and they are happy because they feel they weren't robbed.

But other sellers are just flat out greedy, like the one I had mentioned earlier.  Also, (at least in Taiwan), the women typically drive a harder bargin than the men...there were times, when the men wanted to offer a better price, but their wives stopped them  ;D


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: UglyJoe on May 10, 2014, 05:25:50 PM
In my experience, you find independent game stores (as in, not GameStop) run by two different types of people.  There are those who like video games and opened the store as a passion.  And then there are those who just want to make money and think that selling video games is a good way to go about it.

The former tend to be more fun to be in and will have more realistic prices, but also tend to be in constant threat of closing since they're not exactly business savvy.  You also sometimes get the guys who are too passionate about things and end up berating you because your taste in games differs from theirs.

The latter tend to be more annoying to be at.  They're the sort of places that will have game kiosks setup, but will yell at you if you attempt to use them.  Unfortunately, they also seem to be way better at rotating stock than the former.  Prices usually are high, but when they manage to pull in some games that you never see anywhere else, sometimes you just buy it anyway.

I hate random killers.  Some asshole killed a few people and injured some others in a knife attack in Taipei yesterday.  The guy had apparently been wanting to do this for a long time, and a friend of my girlfriend said that their friend used to be classmates with the killer, in high school.  The suspect used to keep a "kill book" back in high school, and had wanted to do something big, something shocking. 

But what is seriously wrong with people these days?  I don't want anyone to be murdered, but I especially hate random killings, as innocents die for no reason at all, no justification, nothing.  So many lives ruined. 

On another note, I was just up in Taipei last weekend, so it opened my eyes a bit, made me think, "What if I was there when this happened?  What would I do?"

I think Taiwan is one of the safer countries in the world though. These kinds of killings seems to happen more often in countries with bigger populations. I can't recall any random killing incidents in Sweden anyway. If the country has bigger population the lunatics are also more numerous I think.

I was in Taipei recently so I also thought "what if this happened when I was there".

I am really starting to get annoyed at Paypal and their slow withdrawal to bank account waiting times.  No matter when I try to withdrawal the money, or the amount I withdraw, it ALWAYS takes the maximum estimated wait time.  I mean, if they say that the money will be there within 3 - 5 days, why does the money only show up for me in 5 days?  Why bother giving a minimal time, if it will never show up in that time anyway?  So annoying.

Deadbeats.  Seriously, in the past few weeks, I've had about five different people (one or two on here, and three others on NA) that just went AWOL, after messaging me to purchase items, and then agreeing to a negotiated sale price.  Unfortunately, this sort of behavior is becoming more and more common, it seems...

Also, I hate when it is after 1:00 AM, and you are lying sick in bed, feeling terrible.  Then friends of yours start asking you to make big decisions with stuff, like looking up hotel room information for your latest trip, and what not.  The trip won't be for several weeks, why do we need to talk about this stuff NOW?  Why couldn't we have talked about it three hours ago, when we were talking, before the meds started wearing off?  And it ALWAYS goes this way.

Not being able to sleep well annoys me.  I went to bed at 2:00 am, woke up at 4:45 am.  Decided to stay up, rather than risk heading back to sleep since I had to get up to get ready for work around 7:00 or so.  My work schedule it pretty typical throughout the week, but Thursday is the only day I need to go in a bit earlier, and I had to call in sick a few times due to oversleeping.  So now I get this paranoia every Wednesday night, and can never get a good night's sleep, worried I will be late for work.  So annoying.

Also, I get annoyed by people who bid up auctions just because they can't afford the items, and they don't want the other bidders to get a deal.  Such a selfish act.  Some dude on NA was bragging about this, and that crap really makes me angry.

When people don't understand your hobby.  Yesterday I bought a cute Famicom clone (it was a gray one, two controllers, hook ups, etc) and the price was more than right so I grabbed it.  It was while game hunting, as I had a few hours in the city to kill while waiting for my girlfriend to arrive.  Well she ended up seeing the purchase, after opening my backpack, and she said something like "Now why would you buy this?  You already have a thousand of these back at home!  You don't need another.  What will you do when it is time to move to a different apartment / house?  Have you thought of that?  I won't help you to move that stuff..." 

Now I really like the look of this clone, so if I can clean it up (let's say it is at 90% ready to be used) then I will make this my official gaming machine, other than my Twin Famicom (I always keep one clone and the Twin Famicom both hooked up, due to compatibility issues with some games), and that means that at some point I might get rid of another generic red / white clone I have.

But seriously though, I just sent out five Famiclone machines to two people here on FW, and then I get attacked for purchasing one machine?  What about the five I sent off for others to enjoy?  It is not like I am just hoarding all of these for myself.

Not being in a band also annoys me.  Every time I go to watch live music, I always feel a bit saddened as well, because I just want to throw together a rock band of sorts with a few buddies and play a few gigs on weekends, time permitting...just something mainly casual though, and just for fun.  But I can never seem to find anyone that wants to jam out with me, and the few times I have met people for jamming, our skill levels were so mismatched that nothing ever became of it, and the rest of the time, the other parties had different ambitions than I.  So annoying.

Sometimes if you deny the reaction and rise above with professionalism in a stern response that's enough.  Something like - "that's the kind of remark I expect to have to correct my students on, not my colleagues.  If you feel that strongly about it then perhaps we should discuss it with the headteacher together.  If not I suggest you concentrate on the best use of your own time and stop trying to wasting mine with immature comments."

Not that it's any of my business, but I hope you can find a solution.  Some people just don't like outsiders no matter how hard you try.  If it is that kind of thing you can't let it get to you personally, it's just ignorance on their part.

Thursday annoyed me.  Found out my mom has cancer (though it seems they caught it early enough that it won't be a problem, but you never know for sure...she will have to go through chemo for 6 weeks though).  Had to go for a health check today as well, and pay $50 for it (as well as wake up extra early).  Found out a game cart I was selling was not the full version, making it seemingly worthless (imo anyway).  Got chewed out by the gf.  Did my laundry, but the washing machine acted up, spraying water over the floor in that room and also it didn't wring my clothes out like it was supposed to...I hope my pants will dry in time for tomorrow.  And finally, when dealing with that laundry mess, discovered that a flying cockroach managed to make it inside of my apartment.  Lost sight of that bastard before I had a chance to kill it, so it is probably still flying around out there, ready to scare me when I least expect it.  What a crappy day, actually I think this stuff goes beyond the point of annoyance.

People who are too lazy, greedy, or otherwise ignorant to actually put fair prices on something I want.

Someone is selling a nice CIB Sega Menacer on a local selling page here, but he's asking $100 for it. I emailed him, and tried to talk him down by providing apples-to-apples Ebay listings selling for $16-32 (plus shipping).

He declines, and counters by throwing me an active Ebay link for one for $100. Grr... As I wrote him back, Ebay is only a credible price guide when you're using Sold or Completed Listings. People list things there for ten times their actual value all the time, but they don't actually sell.

My point exactly - used bookstores actually do that as well by going to Amazon and then looking at what people are asking for on the Marketplace.  You take a book to the counter or ask how much it is - giveaway is when they ask for the ISBN number and then sit at their computer looking it up on 'the system' for 5 minutes before blurting a price they seem to have complete confidence in.  Just daft, completely daft.

It annoys me that I am supposed to leave feedback on ebay as soon as I receive the item.

How am I supposed to know the quality without testing it for a couple of months at least?

Typical in the consumerism society... You got it, it works, so no problem. Especially the mentality with the cheap stuff from China.

and always: "please leave feedback with five stars". Right, as if testing for a couple of hours I know this item has a 5-star quality.

I agree. In long island where I live their are groups of resells that are aggressively going around and snatching up any video game worth anything from yard sales, thrift shops and any other venue you can buy them at. Then they turn around and sell them on eBay or in their own store for mega money. Pleas tell me how Mario for the nes is worth $20 -30 when it came with almost every darn system made. I was in one of the thrift shops and was talking to a guy when he said he was a reseller as if it was a badge of honor and that he didn't even play game. I looked in his cart ad he had about 20 games in his cart and just on the top $3 of witch I wanted. chono trigger, golden sun and final fantasy for the nes. All were listed with the stores label for $4.99. A fair as hell price for me. I asked the guy that since he wasn't going to play them would he mind letting me take one or two of them. He proceeded to hand me his eBay card and tell me that I can buy them from him once he post them online. For the giggles I went and looked at the prices of the games that he got before me and chrono was $75 golden sun was $25 and final fantasy was $45. This is what grinds my gears.

People that waste food.  Some woman was at the restaurant in line in front of me, and apparently there was some problem or the woman changed her mind or something.  I think she had ordered, and then decided she wanted beef with the noodles instead of balls of fish, but they didn't have any beef left.  By the time she decided this the noodles were already cooked, bagged, and ready to eat.  So I saw the woman complaining to the owner of the small shop, then the owner refunded her the money, and the owner took the bags with the noodles and dumped them into the garbage...two or three servings worth.

Maybe the restaurant was in the wrong, but I personally have never had any experiences like that at the restaurant, and seeing as the woman had already paid the guys, she must have allowed the order to go along pretty long before stopping it (for those that don't know, at many local Taiwanese food shops you pay AFTER your food is ready).  And just to see so many bags of good noodles go to waste, it just really bothered me.

Or just get a Super Famicom. They are cheap and you can use all cables and controllers, except the AC-AC adapter that comes with the PAL SNES, for it. Or get a US SNES and snap off the tabs if you want to play US games as well and don't want to use an adapter. Modding the cart slot to fit US cartridges usually turns up looking very bad.

Or better, why didn't they just use the same design on the US SNES instead of that ugly squarish thing with purple buttons. From Nintendo 64 and on they used the same design in all regions at least.

I like the us snes look. May just be because I grew up with it. Also purple is my favorite color. I do however have a super famicom controller that I removed the cord from and replaced with a us one so I have a longer cord. I just hate region locking in general. alternatively if you dont want to mod the cart slot you could ether buy empty eur/jp game shells and put your ntsc games in them and make new labels or you could play them with just their pcb but that's a wee ugly also.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: P on July 31, 2014, 11:51:00 PM
Yeah we all hate region locks.
I would rather just use an adapter to play US games on a SFC though. The only problem with a wobbly set-up like that, is that it needs clean pins on the cartridge and the adapter. Else a bump to the SFC could easily cause a game to hang.

It's an online wholesaler often you need to be buying in massive quantities and you often need to be a business.

I just got banned from neogaf for suggesting Zoe you-know-who reaped what she sowed by cheating on her boyfriend with a bunch of other guys, then lied to him about it.

I've been cheated on by a girl who I thought I would be spending the rest of my life with. I was a lot younger, more naive then, but it crushed me.
So I have sympathy for the ex-boyfriend and anyone whose significant other cheats on them, lies to them, strings them along, and makes them feel they should be feeling bad about doubting loyalty.

Anyway, it's annoying that I got banned for that.  I'm not even touching the 'did it for her career conspiracy'. I don't believe that.  I'm just defending the guy who got emotionally trampled in the relationship.

Sheesh.  Some people though. How dare I not show support for the promiscuous, lying cheater.


And that's all I have to say about that. I don't want to get banned here too for stating my opinion.  :-X

Well here's the reason I got: 

Quote
You have been banned for the following reason:
Trying to blame a person for their own harassment and even defending that harassment as "making a statement" is disgusting. Also, Batman? BATMAN!?

I said what I said here. That she reaped what she sowed by cheating on her loyal boyfriend with 5 other guys.
The group was talking about a nsfw comic that JonTron had linked to about the hypocrisy of the Zoe thing. It was wasn't unlike something you'd see in MAD Magazine, but some people were calling it pornographic. I said 'I saw, the comic, and wouldn't call it pornographic, but it is making a statement' .       That's undebatable. It's most definitely making a statement.  I wasn't defending the comic by the way. That's literally all I said about that.  But I was banned for defending the comic and the act of doing so was 'disgusting'.

If I got banned for just talking about it, alrighty, but there were pages and pages of people talking about it. I guess they just ban the people who have negative things to say about her.

As to show I'm not taking it all too seriously, I mentioned how Batman would throw her into Arkham for her injustice to the boyfriend, but I guess that just pissed the mod off further.  Who knows.
Power abuse.  Deleting posts and delivering a warning would have been more acceptable.  but this is 'bam, I don't like you because you're not on my side'.


Well whatever. I need to spend more time on Famicom World anyway!  :bub:

You won't get banned here for trivial stuff like that.  ;D

Huzzah!

Oh if it's temporary no worries all the same.

What irritates me?  When I miss out on a killer deal because I forgot to bid  and it ends real low :(  

I missed out on a brand new Gameboy Light gold that went for a tad over $100 that way.  

Could have (and surely would have) gone way higher of course had I bid in time driving it up, but it really bugs me still.

I also passed up the chance to buy a brand new Wild Gunmman holster set way back, but I found one in the end.

Hoping I can replicate that with the Gameboy Light and DMG someday.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: tappybot on August 28, 2014, 06:26:23 PM
I saw a gameboy light in hardoff for about 1000 yen (loose of course) when I was still in Japan.
I had no idea it was a bit of a rarity, and now that I'm more into gameboy stuff, It's right up my alley.

Well, I get down too when I lose an auction by a couple bucks, but likely, whoever had won had a much higher max bid than the final result that comes up.
Who knows how much they were willing to bid.  I try to, when bidding, imagine a number in my head from the very beginning that I absolutely won't go over...   so that when I lose by a couple bucks, I can say 'hey, it was just out of the range I'm willing to pay for that item'

I interact with a lot of adults, and am in various relationships with them, but I just wish I had a few close mates to hang out with and do things with, such as grabbing a few drinks, a pizza, and then gaming, or something similar only with playing guitar / making music.  Definitely something I miss, and it is not as fun alone.

On another note, I am furious right now.  When I was a teenager I used to have a bad temper, but then I mellowed a lot when I got into my 20s.  Now I am a very patient person, but the admin at my job just really pissed me off, basically feel like I was spit in the face or something.   >:(

It is back to school time and I got a new schedule for the classes I will teach.  Well a few things about the new schedule have just left me very angry, pissed off, and made me feel a rage like I haven't felt for a long time.  For one thing, this semester the one class of students will be learning how to write, and just last semester and all summer I had been working with them on science; at this age though, the science will be replaced with writing.  Instead of allowing me to teach the same class, only teach writing, the admin decided to take the class away and give it to my lazy colleague, the one I had some problems with previously.  This teacher had been teaching a different level/grade of writing (which had also been taken away from me previously), and I will never forget the day that that teacher had asked made some comment to me about writing class.  I had asked her what she was teaching, and she answered "Teach?  Oh, are we supposed to teach something?  I just pass out their books and they open up to the next story and write, independently, and I sit and correct papers for a different class."  Needless to say, the quality of the writing had gone down drastically, and instead of improving, the writing got much worse.  And instead of teaching children about writing style, different genres, etc, the children just wrote stories riddled with  mistakes.  Unbelievable. 

On the new schedule, the manager had also scheduled for me to work Tuesday nights, two times a month.  Now, the one class I had agreed to work, once a month, but the other class I never agreed to do.  The funniest part is that over the summer I had been working every Tuesday night at this time, at a second job, and that boss had asked me to continue working permanently on Tuesday night - I turned him down, as I had felt that I was getting to worn out, and needed a break.  So now, I am being told I need to work two Tuesday nights a month (I don't have a problem with once a month, but twice a month is a problem for me), and to make it even crappier, I get paid less money for this job than at the other place (and the job is more difficult).  So I free up time to have the time filled back up, and then get paid less to boot!  I really hate when it is time for a new schedule, the schedule is always so shitty compared to my colleagues and this is the type of crap that goes on.   >:(   :'(

One thing I forgot to add is that on Tuesday, I need to be at work at 9:00 in the morning, and then the last class is at 9:00 in the evening.  Sure, there is a  couple hour break in the afternoon, but that makes for an exhausting day no matter how to cut it.

We were in the backyard and there was a hole in the ground from where they've came out, i don't know what kind of wasps are that, but usual wasps don't attack people for no reason, now i must destroy them... i'll put the gasoline on a dishtowel at the and of stick and lit it , hopefuly it will neutralize our problem. Luckily that my nephew was sleeping inside so he wasn't hurt.
Wasps could be very deadly in some cases... once one woman was working in the field and she was stung to death by lot of wasps , what a horrible way to die...  :'(

They were yellow and black , i guess they're called  'german' wasps, i searched on wikipedia, and figured out, because that kind make their nests in the ground and they live mostly in Middle Europe.

German wasp is that first on the picture:  >:(

I really hate them, they benefit nothing.  The ones we have here look very similar - but no ground nests that I've ever seen:

However, it's these that are the really scary ones - not as aggressive but a much more painful sting :S

(http://www.whatsthatbug.com/wp-content/uploads//2009/07/wood_wasp_lauren.jpg)

Horseflies are also something you just do not want to get on you - they bite rather than sting though and it ends up very inflamed and infected like a strong spider bite.

Fact that i'm addicted to coffee.  :(

I only started drinking coffee thanks to a Croatian friend of mine :)  Every time I would go to his house, he would offer me coffee and when I would decline, he would offer for his wife to make me some tea instead.  I always felt bad though, to be a trouble, so one day I decided to accept the coffee offer and now I drink it on occasion, though only when I am tired. 

Something that annoys me is that my air conditioner only works about half.  I always need to slap it to make it work, and even then, it only works sometimes.  Right now it is not working correctly :(

I'm a tea drinker myself and I also felt bad when I was younger and came home to someone and they had to make tea for me (especially if I was the only one having tea), so I started drinking coffee for that reason. But I still drink mostly tea at home. I typically only drink coffee when out with other people that are drinking coffee, or when I need to stay awake because I have work that needs to be done and haven't had enough sleep.

I can't stand weak coffee that some cafés serves and it has to be without milk and sugar. Black tea I can drink in any combination except "milk but no sugar/honey"-combo.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: smeghead on September 23, 2014, 05:25:03 PM
I also love tea, i drink it every evening , but not the real plant of Tea... here where i'm from, people call herb-drinks (different dried herbs cooked in hot water) - tea , i drink mint-tea or sometimes chamomile-tea,

but in winter i often replace coffee with original Tea ( Green-tea ), it has similar effect as coffee so it's not good to drink it before sleeping!


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: P on September 23, 2014, 07:51:49 PM
Yeah any tea that's not made on the tea plant is called herbal tea (although it isn't really real tea of course). It's drinken a lot here too and traditionally used as medicine. herbal tea is nice sometimes, though I prefer normal tea, either European-style black or Asian-style green. I usually drink tea in the evening and I can sleep after that but not after drinking coffee.

I often make ice tea with used tea leaves (just put them in a container, fill it with cold water and put in the refrigerator) that's bean used at least once or twice. Good quality tea leaves can be used several times and then once more in ice tea. This kind of ice tea doesn't have caffeine I heard (unless you eat the leaves themselves).

Cracked skin on my fingers.  I've had this problem ever since the 4th grade, sometimes during the year (usually during the winter back in the USA), due to weather changes, my skin gets really dry and will crack open on some of my fingers, being really sore and looking ugly to boot.  Well right now I have a nice case of cracked finger skin, on two of my fingers, and I also ended up cutting my thumb when cracking open a Famicom cart, so that cut will get cracked and dry too, most likely.  I seriously hate my skin at times, and also all of the expensive creams that never work for me (including the stuff from dermatologists)


Title: Re: Something that annoys you

I am at a point right now where I am having only 1 or 2 beers a week at the moment. I must say I don't miss the hangovers. :p drink water while drinking and take some advil before you go to bed. It usually got rid of any nasty hangover by the time I woke up. Also drinking things that have electrolytes should help with hangovers. Drinks like Gatorade and Powerade.


Title: Re: Something that annoys you
Post by: fcgamer on June 05, 2016, 04:57:20 PM

Title: Re: Something that annoys you

I usually take one of those fluid replacement effervescent tablets that are used to counter dehydration when you go to warmer countries. I never needed them when travelling, but they are great hangover medicine.

I also only drink a few beers per week. And even on parties where I do drink a lot of beer, I stay away from the strong stuff so I don't really get very drunk nowdays, and therefore no hangover either. I guess workout and moderate drinking has helped building my alcohol resistance over the years. I'm totally fine with not getting wasted and then getting the subsequent hangover.

Yup and it's not just what is socially considered as fat or slim. An East Asian is more likely to contract diseases due to obesity than most other ethnic groups at the same level of fattness. The Japanese BMI is adjusted for that reason. Obesity starts from BMI 25 instead of 30 like in western countries.

I presume you're referring to me on this one?  If so, I'd like to apologize about that last thing we had talked about.  But with the information given, I have no way to contact that said person unless he and I have a transaction together. 

About the other carts, though, I have them sitting here waiting for you.  One of the ones you inquired about (I had bought two), I wouldn't mind letting you have, but there is something wrong with it as there is some light glitching (maybe bitrot?!?) compared to the other  I have, sadly.

Haha no I actually know it's complicated for you to do that request, I already got told once it's a mess to contact people there. You weren't the person I had in mind and I was just complaining overall, not specifically on FW members!

Hahahaha, oh good, I am glad on that!  It must have been my guilty conscious.

$9.54 shipping for a $10.00 CD.  It's not even an international shipment ???

I mean, come on.  I just ordered a CD from Japan that only cost me $8 to ship across the planet.  And somehow it costs more than that to ship from the west coast to the east coast?

What?!

I didn't even charge $10 for a CD I'd ship from California to France.

You know what really grinds my gears? Fireworks, ESPECIALLY when they're set off AFTER Bonfire Night. I'm not kidding you... some idiots were setting them off just there and I have to wonder... why? Just, why?!

These stupid things need to be banned. Enough said.

There are some religious / cultural festivals that center around fireworks Bry - I found out recently.  Sounds like that (some are close to Bonfire Night).  We had some last night too.

I'm meaning about fireworks being set off from their back gardens, as these things can be sold in shops would you believe. I personally think the professionals should only use them and not those that have a death wish or are bored. If Australia had banned the public sale of fireworks, then why can't elsewhere have this same regulation? It would spare the world from further noise and air pollution.

Thankfully, I'm not hearing anymore but I will be expecting to hear more when New Year's comes about, and that will be the final time unti another eleven months. And then the cycle repeats.

In Sweden firecrackers and other fireworks which effects is mainly about sound became illegal to sell some years ago, but other types are still legal. But because of this I think Easter fireworks has died out. Some younger Swedish people I talked with hadn't even heard about Easter crackers before.

Non-native English speakers who believe they know more about the language than natives. Some of my students have really arrogant parents.

While I don't pretend to know everything about the language, I think I do have quite a bit of knowledge thanks to studying the language and its literature at the university, self-study of the language and language relations to other tongues, my study on word etymology, etc.  I also discuss with my English friend / colleague about different word usages, grammar patterns, etc, and never tell my students that something from the book is incorrect, without asking other colleagues from different nations their opinions on the matter.

Even still, some parents feel the books know best, feel that they know best, despite not growing up in an English-speaking environment, not being immersed, not knowing the culture, etc.  It can get quite annoying, especially when they try to show you up.

We have that in Sweden, supposedly to scare away witches and evil spirits, but it seems to be a dying tradition. I guess we are going to have a lot of witches and evil spirits from now on...

Been waiting for a copy of Rockman & Forte: Mirai Kara no Chosensha coming via SAL that's over two weeks late. My Wonderswan Color itself was already a week late, as were other things, so it's not been the best start of the year for me regarding shipping.

Also, Gen Snowflake.
