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

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?

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.
