Title: PP: Not having a Pet Peeves thread.
Post by: Log! on August 21, 2009, 09:43:17 am
You know the rules.

PP: My room mate has fallen for this really really bitchy girl, and he said "What? Yeah, you can totally live with all five of the guys in my house! What? HELL YEAH YOU CAN BRING YOUR TWO YEAR OLD DAUGHTER!"


No more late nights playing loud video games, no convincing Tom that "he CAN drink a whole gallon of milk in under an hour because he is fat." Worst of fucking all, NO SWEARING. Oh, wait, that's not the worst. The worst is her screaming because she doesn't want to go to bed for about an hour. Do you know how terrible it is going from joking about killing a child to actually planning that shit out? It makes you feel like a monster.

I say tell her to fuck off and keep up all your old stuff. You guys were there first and it's your home not hers. If the guy dating her has a problem with it you guys outnumber him significantly.

PP: the screen on my phone no longer works. People keep texting me and I can't read the texts. I can still make calls and receive them but I need to get an actual list of all of my friends' phone numbers because I can't get to my phonebook in my phone because the screen doesn't work...

PP: People dissing other religions.  There's really no need for it is there?  So you're a Buudhist, does that mean it's right for you to call Allah "a bitch"?  no.  If you're a Satanist, why would you insult Christianity?  Your guy was the one who fucked up.  If you're an atheist, why would you talk down about any religion, you nihilist?

PP: I no longer feel welcome in my flat.  My downstairs neighbour has been bitching about the noise I make - doing weird and unreasonable things like walking around, cooking, opening/closing doors, cleaning, running the washing machine, etc.  I've been looking for a new place for a while now, almost entirely because of her cigarette smoke coming stinking in through my windows, but now, because of her complaints, I'm constantly paranoid and self-conscious of every single thing that I do while I'm home.  I shall have to move away, just so I can feel at home in my own home.  Anyone would think that I was having lots of noisy parties, playing loud music or games, moving furniture, and running/jumping on the spot all the time, the way she tells it!  What about the downhill neighbour's Rotty barking, the uphill neighbour's screaming baby, the back neighbour's frequent late-night parties, the constant traffic, the massive construction site across the road, the shrieking kids at the daycare centre, that bloody ice-cream van that's always around, the churches ringing their bells for hours at a time, and the way that everyone in the block can hear all the door buzzers and the front door banging?  Edit: and Mr Middle-Life-Crisis's motorbike, that you can hear from half a mile away, and that he likes to leave idling for about ten minutes before going anywhere or putting it away?  Hell, I can hear her talking, her TV and radio, her banging doors, and so on, and I just ignore them like I do all the other sounds.  I also resent being made to feel that I'm being callously inconsiderate, when I've always done my conscientious best to be a good citizen/neighbour!

If you're a Satanist, why would you insult Christianity?

NP, you need to go buy a new phone, and pay for the contact transfer/photo transfer.  It's a small fee, but you don't have to go around to all of your friends and get a handwritten list.

I have no cash. Like I have a total of $0.70. My dad said he would get me a new phone when he renews the contract next month which is next week so i can wait until then.

If I want to talk smack behind somebodies back, I'll use my MSN, if I want to see pictures of stupid drunk people, I'll go on 4Chan. No offense to you people who use FaceBook, but that's how I feel about it.

How pathetic. Is that supposed to be an insult? It's certainly a piss-poor one, to be sure. Surely you can do better.

Nihilism =/= atheism, by the way. But I wouldn't expect you to be capable of realizing that.

Actually, no it was not supposed to be an insult.  It was just a statement.  If someone doesn't believe in anything (eg Atheists/Nihilists) why would they feel the need to insult any belief?

Christmas time traditionaly has a huge spike in suicides, both attempted and realized.  Some go so far as to call it the season of suicide.  Ask someone who has little money and few to no friends and/or family how enjoyable they find it.  Some people hate the travesty it's become (commercialized and stripped of real meaning) some just find it incredibly stressful (the obligation to buy things for people they don't feel they can really afford.)  I have mixed feelings about Christmas and acknowledge that it is not universally enjoyed.

Also, you have to live with two of the most annoying helspawns in the universe. (well, i do, anyways)

Quite possibly worse than that two year old up on page one.

It has been stripped of real meaning, and even if it wasnt, id still hate it.

I dont feel like committing suicide, but sometimes in the season, i feel like a depressing fuck.

If I only got 27% last time when it was fresh in my mind, there's no way I'm going to get 40% (the pass mark) this time, when I've forgotten everything except the word 'friccative' (including the meaning of said word).

(the obligation to buy things for people they don't feel they can really afford.)

There's an obligation? Huh.

Its just those little things that make no sense that are really annoying.

PP: Design flaws. I'm using this small laptop here, and if you so much as tap the touch pad at the bottom of the keyboard, it clicks, if I was to put my pointer over the back button right now and simply tap my touch pad, it would click it. The question arises, why the hell would you want to tap on the touch pad to click, if the button is right freaking there? Its just annoying.
Not only that, but apparently the right side of the touch pad is a scroll thing, but there's no indication of it being there, so I'm sitting there, trying to click something, and then I start scrolling, to add to that, since its such a small laptop, and I have such big hands, I will accidentally hit the control button, and my right thumb might nudge the scroll side of the touch pad, either making text bigger, or smaller.

So, I am staying with my girlfriend for about a week (She lives kinda far away, so it's easier for me to stay with her than for me to leave and come back over and over), and her mother, who she is staying with, is completely okay with this. Her father does not even know she has a boyfriend. So, today I learned that she and her father are helping my girlfriend's sister move into my girlfriend's home. I have to go sleep in my lady's room for a while while this is happening, so no 'splaining needs to be done. Fast forward about an hour, I am awoken by the bed rumbling. The bass in my girl's father's voice is so intense, that it is rumbling my bed. The situation goes from "If he walks in, it will be a simple, yet awkward, explanation." to "Teenager hiding in the closet in an 80's horror flick." I was TERRIFIED.

I know you are not as into Comic books as I am, but this is a big deal.  a big big fucking deal.

I can only buy crappy, clear, plastic, spring loaded airsoft guns, but I can also buy full metal, Metal BB, Lead Pellet Shooting, CO2 Powered Air Pistols that look almost exactly .357 Magnums, and Walthers, and Glocks, that Don't even have Orange Muzzles, guns that can kill somebody if you try hard enough... But I can't buy guns that look exactly like real guns, but are only copies, replicas. HOW DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? If I can buy a CO2 Gun that shoots Metal BBs and Pellets, that looks almost exactly like a real gun, why not with Airsoft guns that shoot plastic BBs? Or just replicas that don't fire?

I had to do all the same shit by myself at an ENTIRELY new school where I knew absolutely no one. She knows plenty of people that go there. I live about fifty minutes away, and the way to get there is always very heavy with traffic. I'm sorry I can't bend over for your every whim. I never said anything was definite. Grow up and learn to deal with things by yourself every now and then, okay? I did the exact same thing last year. Then don't go and tell me I'm terrible for getting your hopes up.

And people who think motion control is stupid are likely just to lazy to move their arms a little bit, its not like in the commercials where people are flailing their arms around like monkeys, it doesn't take that much effort.

Another PP: my neighbour, who has been complaining about the noise I make (presumably by doing housework, since I don't play music/TV/radio or have visitors or anything) is now playing really loud annoying music, and has spent the last couple of weeks crashing around herself, and talking really loudly with her boyfriend. >:C

Edit: another other PP: I broke my favourite X-ray tube. It was the oldest most basic one, not very interesting to glance at, but it was very nicely designed and compact and you could see all the components. I put it down wrong after playing with it, and a couple of minutes later I heard it roll and fall and smash off the bookcase, and then I had to clear up all the glass shards. Yes, I have some X-ray tubes, they are souvenirs from my job (we were having a clear-out before moving the department, and they were going free, ok?)!

PP: Women in movies these days are all skanks (With few exceptions), mainly to appeal to the guys who find women with huge breasts, blond hair, and low self esteem attractive.
And apparently most guys find that attractive. The same guys who also watches football on a Plasma TV that they bought mainly to watch an entire football season, just to return it afterward because it "stopped working" and get their money back, and drink Budweiser bought with the money they got back from returning the TV with their bros, whilst talking about the "Sleezy Pow Pow" they will shred in the winter.
And think that Ultimate Wrestling is real...
I could go on...

I wouldn't go so far as to call them SKANKS as INTELLIGENT. You really think that most of these women are so dumb that they don't know that their body sells before their skills do? People stand by either touching themselves or calling them whores while they shell out cash to see the movies they were in because the director thought that she had "Just the right pair" to put asses in the seats, and all the while she lines her pockets with gold. Hell, if I could make that much money by spending a couple thousand on surgery then waggling my naughty bits around on a screen for an hour and a half, you'd better damn well believe that I'd have the biggest, perkiest rack within sixty miles.

Post by: Yutrzenika on September 10, 2009, 10:24:15 pm
You do make a point, but what I'm saying is that when I see a movie, I see it for story, and plot development, not to see some chick naked. I just find making a movie because it will get a bunch of horny guys to pay to see it is stupid.
And I'm not saying these skanks are all dumb whores, I'm just saying they LOOK like skanks, as in, they don't look attractive. Namely Megan Fox, she looks like a Skank.
My "...mainly to appeal to the guys who find women with huge breasts, blond hair, and low self esteem attractive" comment was that guys who would go to see her movie are the stereotypical men who go just for the sake of seeing a naked woman, and not to enjoy the plot, and story.
And that the stereotypical man finds those kinds of women attractive, the women with "Huge Breasts, blond hair, and low self esteem".

       paying $3.50 for a coffee
       spilling coffee on my lap in my truck after i had it detailed and ruining my new shorts :'(
       spending 6 hours with my idiot co worker to finish a job that i could have done solo in 2 hours >:(
       listening to a customer bitch about the fence i just built and wanting it altered in an impossible way
       crashing off my caffeine/alcohol buzz around 10am and being convinced an Aderoll will help
       being incredibly wore out and run down but unable to nap because the Aderoll has me all jacked up
       suddenly realizing that all my flash/youtube sounds aren't working :'(
       listening to my dad rant and rave in my awesome mood about me not trying to find a career hard enough
       holding my tongue around dad about the 15-20 rejection emails from companies
       graduating college during a recession in a field that was booming when i started school

He blames the controller too.
I do my best to avoid playing fighters with him.

When I had Soul Caliber IV, that was horrible, I made a character I was happy with, I was good with her fighting style, and when I face him he freaks out because she's "Cheap". Yeah, I do training mode and practice all those combos and moves, and memorize them.
He mashes buttons- No, scratch that, beats the hell out of buttons. The fighting style he chose for his character allows him to HEAL. If I'm cheap for using that long staff pole thing, then I don't know whats cheap anymore. He just mashes until he figures out the combos.
Same with Smash Bros Brawl! XD
Apparently Snake is cheap! It doesn't help that he ONLY uses Zelda/Sheik, quite possibly the weakest character.

1. energy malt liquor like Four Loko and the sort

2. sorry adderall. . .Adderall is a brand-name drug psychostimulant composed of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, which is thought to work by increasing the amount of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain.[1] Adderall is widely reported to increase alertness, concentration and overall cognitive performance while decreasing user fatigue.  it's to counter add/adhd

3. detailed, as in payed a guy $150 to go over the interior and exterior of my car with cleaning agents

4. it tastes like sour creme that gone bad and slightly chunky

PP: totally misunderstanding who was working on the forums.  I thought it was the people who hosted TZH...I was wrong.  If it's Greg, then I know he's doing his damndest.  I just thought it was like a team of people who did this for a living.

Well, the host and I are working together on it. But we've been getting hit with a variety of problems over the past few weeks, so it's been slow going. I'm going to try backing up the forum today and loading some of the posts, but it may scramble things, so I'll be doing it when most folks are offline, this evening.

PP: Playstation 3 Fanboys, I've met lots of rude people on online video games. But never in my life have I ever met more rude people (Online) then I have on Playstation Network.
I just deleted my first PSN friend because he's like all other PS3 Fanboys, Elitist, Fascist, and above all else, an asshole.
I can't mention any other console without being called a slang term for homosexual, and that PS3 is better than sliced bread, and laser eye surgery. Just several minutes ago I went on PS3, to conduct an experiment, I went on MGO and joined a random Deathmatch server, my first message said in game being "Xbox 360" within mere seconds I had people calling me "Fag" and that "Halo 3 Sucks", I joined 6 Deathmatch servers, and got the same results in 5 of the 6 servers, the remaining one being comments like "lol wut?" and "oooook".
If I go on Xbox and ask about PS3, or Wii, most of the time I will get comments such as "Nah, not a fan of it." or even "Yeah I have a Wii", "It's pretty cool.", I do get people bashing it, but very seldom do.

PP1: A few weeks ago, I found a pine TV stand, kind of like this one (http://www.bofahome.com/image/images/products%20images/pd/19.jpg) but instead of a drawer it has another shelf. Someone was throwing it away. So, I took it home and put it in the garden to use as a table for barbeques and/or a workbench. It was perfect. just the right height to use for sawing on. Today, the landlord hired some maintenance guys to clean up the garden. They took my beloved TV stand, without even asking. Bastards.

PP2: I went shopping today. The bloke on the till wouldn't sell me beer, due to not having ID. I am 19 years old, and look older. You guys all know what I look like. I do not look underaged. This is the first time in almost a year that I've been asked for ID there, with me going shopping roughly once a week. I'm sure he'd even served me before. Yet still, no beer for me.

PP: So I like the show "Destroyed in Seconds" it's a great show if you love watching shit, well, get blown the hell up.
One thing that drives me insane about the show though is that in a lot of clips they throw in extra sounds, usually screams from members of a crowd, screams that you have heard in lots of other TV shows and movies, and a lot of these small additions are really annoying, as they are constantly played over and over again.
A lot of these screams added to the crowd are unfitting, the added screams sound like a person being hit by a car, or being beat up, or in some sort of danger themselves, like they, themselves are in some danger themselves, when they are in no danger, only the person they are watching.

WARNING: The following contains excessive use of the word "fuck." TZ is mad, please.

I did wake him up. I told him to get in his own fucking bed. He didn't fucking budge.

Tomorrow I'm telling him how the fuck things are going to happen, and if he doesn't comply, I'm out. You might wonder how that would be bad for him, but I'm the one who brought the flatscreen, the entertainment system, half of the video games, the window fan, the trash can, and the fridge. When you put it like that, I own most of this goddamn room, yet I'm the one who doesn't feel at home.

I'm the one who cleans up the messes. I'm the one who takes the trash out. I clean up the empty soda cans and candy wrappers around his desk and under the bunkbed. I pick up his bedding from the floor and put it back on his mattress. I find my hair brush and combs on his desk. I find office supplies I bought on his desk. I find a pair of headphones that were tucked away in my desk drawer jammed into his iPod. I wake up and hear him putting on my cologne sometimes. He scoffs when I nicely ask him to take the trash out one time. He has the gall to complain about me hanging my towels and washcloths on the towelrack on the door, even though he just tosses his on the pile of laundry on the floor by his dresser that makes it impossible to even open the door all the way. He waits until I go down to do my laundry, then runs down after me hoping he can throw his in, too. He tosses his muddy shorts in with my whites, turning them into off-whites. He asks me to get stuff for him because he's too fucking lazy to get up and get it himself. He spills shit all over my rug, then uses my bottled water to clean it up. He jokes and says that I'm doing my "womanly duty" when I clean up so the room won't look like a fucking landfill. He lets his friends barge in whenever they damn well please. He smoked pot in the room all fucking weekend, even after I asked him nicely to smoke somewhere else and explained why I don't want it in the room. AND NOW HE'S PASSED THE FUCK OUT IN MY MOTHERFUCKING BED AND PREVENTING ME FROM GETTING SOME MOTHERFUCKING SLEEP, AND I HAVE FINALLY MOTHERFUCKING LOST IT.

I used to be best friends with this asshole, but I can tell right now that this isn't going to work out. I'm fucking done. I can't put up with it anymore! I am not letting that son of a bitch ruin my freshman year, because motherfucker it has been shitty enough already.

You're right, Boomstick. I do let people walk all over me, and I need to fix that. Starting with this bastard sleeping on my fucking bunk.

There you go TZ.  And honestly, if you asked him and his friends not to smoke pot in the room, as soon as they didn't abide my wishes, I would have called the fucking cops.  That is just fucking stupid of him.  And yes, get the fuck out of there.  And spread rumors about how he woke you up several times in the middle of the night with his hand reaching towards your crotch.

Of course, I'd MUCH rather my dad have come in than my mom. I'm not sure how he'd react to that, but I do have a pretty good idea how she'd react. And by 'react' I mean flip a Goddamn shit.

I lost about half of what I had left. And the pisser of it is that spilling the stuff put me out of the mood for it.

PP: Horror movies suck these days. If I can watch a commercial for a movie for about 3 seconds and figure out that it's a lame horror movie before being told what the movie is about, or the title even, then chances are it's another bad, and predictable thriller/horror movie.

On the topic of horror movies...
PP: They're making a "Saw VI", yeah. Stop it already. Those movies stopped being good around the third one, you're just kicking the skeletal remains of a dead horse.

On the topic of movies in general...
PP: Stop making those shitty Parody Movies, Scary Movie 1 and 2 were alright, at most, now they're all the same boring, stupid shit that only a person with the brain efficiency of a squirrel would find funny. Here's a movie for you, "Overused Genre Movie".

Now on the topic of TV...
PP: These lame Comedy Sketch shows like MadTV and Royal Canadian AirFarce, they used to be funny, but now they're not. Worst of all, the actors on Royal Canadian AirFarce are all about 50, not that they're bad actors, but they've been doing the show for how long? I think it might be time to end the show, or get new, younger Actors.

PP: These Mac and PC commercials, like MadTV and Royal Canadian AirFarce, funny at first, now just dumb. Apple is so full of themselves. They're latest commercial about innovation, where PC says that Mac has a cable that pops out when somebody trips over it, he's talking about it like its a new thing, yeah, it's not new, the original Xbox had that back in 2001. And I'm sure that some controllers and electronic devices that are linked to a computer or whatever still have that.
I mean, I know some people have sort of a messy set up for their computers, but for the most part, you should have the cables behind your desk, or wherever people WON'T trip over them. And Mac's don't have a whole lot of cables to begin with. I mean, what's are you going to trip over? There's no video game controllers, your mouse and keyboard should be on your desk, same with your speakers, the power cable should be behind the desk plugged into the power outlet.

I know how you feel. Because of a really strict dress code, the options available to my school are always really limited. It's always the same thing: college sports/hat day, decades day, pajama day, crazy <insert article of clothing here> day, and school spirit day.

And I have three of my four classes at the charter school, which doesn't acknowledge spirit/homecoming week and won't us participate in the activities if it violates the dress code, which is pajama and hat day, which everyone knows are the two best ones.

PP: My school's uptight, shitty-ass, unnecessary dress code. We can't wear camouflage because the school board is out of touch with reality. That's absolutely ridiculous.

So that's £15 down the pan for a SATA/PATA conversion kit. And there's even a SATA power socket. Right below the hard drive. Might as well be on Dyson Alpha for all the good it does there. Now I need to track down a SATA power extension lead. All this for a shiny new DVD drive. Arse.

There's a jack in it for a mic, I was talking to one of my friends on Live with a mic, and sometimes the mic will just decide to stop working all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, it usually starts working again, after resetting the xbox, or just waiting awhile, I was enjoying talking to my friend, so I got pissed, and ripped the mic out, breaking the jack goes, as well as the plug the jack goes into in the chatpad.
Now the Chatpad is essentially useless to me, unless I'm talking to nobody, and I'm usually using my chatpad for talking to friends on MSN, while I'm using the mic plugged into it to talk to my friends.

It was not a tolerable fail. You need 30% for that, I got 27.

You need to pass or tolerably fail all your modules to proceed to the next level of study (AKA next year's modules).

I did not do this, because I failed one module.

This means I need to repeat this module before I can proceed.

This means that I have to add a year to my 4 year course, because I have to take a year to do one module.

Because I needed THREE MORE FUCKING POINTS. On an optional module.

No work history= no job. And I can't just take *any* job as I have to pay the rent. And why would I want to work 30 or more hours to end up £5 better off after tax, rent, utilities, travel etc? Let those who complain TRY IT. Oh, hang on, due to the economic collapse they are now and guess what? They're not happy. Welcome to my world. And no: no kids, no drugs, qualified, punctual, will do admin/repetitive/customer support/filing. For £14k plus (and that's about the lowest I can do with Tax Credits). Scrub human excrement off floors and you don't get support. Try to find a job you don't get support. Bankrupt a bank and you get millions.
PP2:Scrub human excrement off floors and you don't get support. Try to find a job you don't get support. Bankrupt a bank and you get millions. My late aunt was a care home auxiliary nurse and same boat after her husband died.
PP3:Girlfriend looked after both (late) parents got little help from the state and what little there was was wrong and did more damage than good. She's now still "on the sick" due to physical and psychological problems from that trauma. And she did work but they "lost" her National Insurance Contributions" (tax) so she won't get a state pension.
Britain: "A Land Fit For Heroes" my arse.
Rant over.

PP: So, anyone here remember when I said I failed one of my university modules? Well, I did.

It was not a tolerable fail. You need 30% for that, I got 27.

You need to pass or tolerably fail all your modules to proceed to the next level of study (AKA next year's modules).

I did not do this, because I failed one module.

This means I need to repeat this module before I can proceed.

This means that I have to add a year to my 4 year course, because I have to take a year to do one module.

Because I needed THREE MORE FUCKING POINTS. On an optional module.

I want to punch myself and/or get absolutely hammered right now.

PP: If I don't somehow manage to convince the people who decide these things that I should do this repeat module alongside my second year, then there will be no second year as I will have to drop out- by the time it came for me to take the second year, I would have forgotten everything I'd learned previously, and I couldn't afford to take this extra year anyway.

Dropping out means that, without my student loan supplementing my finances, I would be unable to pay my rent, so would have to move back home to Reading. I really do not want to do that. Here in Swansea I have lots of friends and several activities to pass my free time. In Reading I have literally no friends (as most of the people I knew I disliked, and the few I did like have moved out) and hardly anything to do. All I'd have to pass the time is computer games, television or reading. Hell, I wouldn't even be able to get online nearly as much.

Over the holidays, I stayed at my parents' house for about a month or so. I was going crazy with boredom by the end of it. I don't even want to imagine what it'd be like living there full-time.

PP: On a similar topic, people who hate Jews, I was asking during class one day "Who the hell started those stupid 'Jew' jokes" and one kid answered "Well really, who likes Jews?" like, what the hell. If your talking in that sense, then you might as well ask "Who likes the Christians?" or "Who likes the buddhists?".
I said back to him "The only people who don't like Jews are Nazis." I'm directed "Nazi" strongly towards him.
His response?
Using being part German as an excuse for not liking the Jews.

I don't like Vista because I normally use Ubuntu, which is faster, more efficient and looks better. Compared to it, Vista is slow, clumsy and butt ugly. And extremely inefficient. So that's why I don't like Vista. Or to give a more concrete example: Vista takes, from startup to I can actually do something, maybe five minutes. (Yes, I  could probably cut down on that, if I bothered. And I've got a pretty powerful laptop too.)
Ubuntu uses less than thirty seconds.
So yeah.

Before she met him, she had a thing for me, she wanted me as her boyfriend, but I refused, as I had no interest in being in a relationship at the time. If she does end up leaving him, which is a likely chance, I don't think I would want to a sex addicted, drug using, smoking emo chick if she decided to come crawling back to me.

because it's bloody stupid, that's why. You wanna write a novel, do the work. If not, well, i'm not gonna say fuck off, but... i've watched NaNoWriMo. As a serious, aspiring author, I do not like or respect it.


Title: Re: PP: Not having a Pet Peeves thread.
Post by: ensouls on October 05, 2009, 07:35:06 pm
It reminds me of those X Number of Days Comic Drawing events. As a serious artist, I don't have any problem with it.. Obviously it's not going to produce great stuff, but it's not like the people writing from scratch aren't doing work. It's just practice for speed, at worst, unless there's cheating. But that's neither here nor there. [/off-topic]


Title: Re: PP: Not having a Pet Peeves thread.
Post by: Grammer on October 05, 2009, 07:40:17 pm
I'll admit that there's the occasional nugget in there, yes. Occasional being the key word. Most of NaNoWriMo is total crap. Furthermore, writing a novel isn't really about speed, it's about endurance. Writing five hundred to a thousand words a day will produce a far better result than NaNoWriMo.

Besides, I'm a creative writing student. My schedule is harsher than NaNoWriMo.


Title: Re: PP: Not having a Pet Peeves thread.
Post by: Major Cobalt on October 05, 2009, 08:00:30 pm
If I calculated it right (which I did), to complete NaNoWriMo in the allotted time, assuming the author writes every day, there must be a MINIMUM of 1,667 words written per day. That's not that much more than what you said.

I don't see how participation in NaNoWriMo makes things 'less serious.' To me, that sounds snobbish, like saying "I'm on a higher pedestal than you because I'm a REAL writer, therefore I will not subject my talents to such childishness."

I may not be majoring in English--or planning on it--but that doesn't make me, or any other NaNoWriMo participant, a 'fake writer,' which is what I'm getting out of your statements. No one expects our finished results to be New York Times Best Seller material.

As for endurance, I'd say NaNoWriMo takes it seriously. You've got to have it to not burn out halfway through.

Post by: Grammer on October 06, 2009, 07:53:39 am
What I guess I'm trying to say is that there's no point whatsoever to NaNoWriMo. OK, sixteen hundred words a day, you say. yes, that's doable. However, writing every day, even for just a month, is hard. Really, really hard. So my respect for that 1% of NaNoWriMo participants who manage it. However, NaNo also requires you to pretty much rush. Rushing mostly ends up in inferior quality.

I may not be majoring in English--or planning on it--but that doesn't make me, or any other NaNoWriMo participant, a 'fake writer,' which is what I'm getting out of your statements. No one expects our finished results to be New York Times Best Seller material.

Then why bother? Why would you willingly put out sub-par work? If you're going to write a bloody novel, why not write it the best you can and get it published?

Yes, I might possibly sound snobbish. Maybe that's because I am, at least a bit. When you get right down to it, writing is my "job", so I take it pretty seriously. It's much the same as why I'm offended at Twilight. As a writer, I feel insulted that something so bad was published.

But for my final argument... Have you actually taken a look at what seems to be NaNoWriMo's average participant? Like the people in their forum? If you have, are you really surprised that I don't take it seriously?

I went out to a church thing with her last night. It's called Judgment Journey and it's sort of... intense, I guess is the right word. Anyway, she was holding on to me the whole time. On the car ride home, she took that as a sign that it was okay to start touching me, which was not.

And I don't have the stones to tell her to back off (which I know will bite me on the ass if I don't make that clear soon) so it went on the whole car ride home. I just thank God and her church's pastor that he made the ride gender separated or else it might have gone farther than that.

I don't like her like that. There's a list of girls that I have listed as priority (not a real list, of course) and she's not even on that. I don't know how to tell her without hurting her feelings. Of course, my friend who set me up with her in the first place is telling me that I have to do what must be done or else it'll end badly for all of us--me, my friend, her, and her friend, who is my friend's girlfriend.

PP: My brother really fucking pisses me off with his "holier than thou" attitude just because he's Christian and I'm not.

So this morning I was riding to school with him. I have no car at the moment so he is my ride. I was talking to our other friend about how I was up all night Saturday night talking to people online and my brother pipes in with "I went to bed early because I had church," sounding all full of himself so I just say under my breath "church, meh" and he turns around all angry and says "DON'T SAY MEH ABOUT CHURCH!" and I was like what the hell? I do not appreciate being yelled at for stating my opinion so I look at him and tell him I'll say what the hell I want to about any religion. And then he threatens to make me get out saying he doesn't want atheists in his car so I tell him "But I'm not an atheist, I'm agnostic. I make fun of atheists too." Then me and my friend end up talking about religion and the subject of morals comes up and my brother uses an argument I hate. "How can you have morals without believing in God. Who says what's good or bad," so I tell him that I get my morals from myself. I decide what is wrong and right in my moral system and I do it BECAUSE it's the right thing not because I want some reward for it like going to heaven. I'm a nice person because it's the way I am not because some guy in the sky tells me to. After that he shut up and I went into class but I have a feeling he's pissed at me.

I normally have no problem with other religions and I have friends in several different ones but when someone like my brother comes along and starts acting like they're better than me just because they sit in a building and listen to an old guy talk on Sundays then it just gets on my nerves.

PP: Shitty-ass drivers

So this morning I was driving to school. This was the situation. (I have prepared a series of images for your viewing pleasure.)

(http://i38.tinypic.com/t8ra5c.png)
I was trying to make a left turn.

(http://i36.tinypic.com/sq4fup.png)
As was the person in front of me.
Person in front of me was actually in the middle of the intersection so no one (read: me) could make a left turn coming from the other direction. Note dumbfuck behind left turner. If you have not already figured it out, you will soon know why this person is called as such.

(http://i38.tinypic.com/2iv1f05.png)
Without realizing (or even looking, I would imagine) dumbfuck attempts to go around (straight) left turner just as left turner and I make our turns. All the while the light is turning yellow. It is too late to abort the turn for left turner, dumbfuck, and I are already smack dab in the middle of the intersection.

Narrowly avoiding a collision with dumbfuck, which would have jammed in the absolute busiest intersection in town, I swerve back to the right to get in my lane, but not before someone coming from the road I am attempting to turn on has emerged from a coma, guns the engine, and nearly slams into my front.

Now, I'm not sure whose fault this is. Some of you may say mine, some may say left turner's, and some say dumbfucks. But criminal analysis reports from Atlanta have shown that if dumbfuck had not attempted to go around on left turner's right side as left turner was making a left turn, left turner and I would have easily made our left turns before the light turned yellow, and this all would have been avoided.

Also, I was going back to school after lunch when I went to make a right turn. Some asshole in a Mercedes flies around me on the LEFT as I am trying to make a turn. Impatient asshole, much? I gave her the finger and went on my merry way.

When I got to the school after lunch, I turned in a parking place. My first thought was, "Hmm, my car grew. Hey, wait a minute." It had not grown; my parking spot had shrunk. Some asshole in a punk little Infiniti sports car had managed to take up 99% of his parking spot's allotted space, as well as abut 15% of mine. I was parked dangerously close to a girl in an F-150. After my car was already parked and turned off, I had to crank it back up, pull out, and adjust so she would not only NOT hit my passenger side door, but so she could get out.

And as the final pissy stunt of the day, I got to the main campus and some dumbfuck jumped in front of me, as if I was in a mood to be messed around with. My heart stopped for a second because as soon as he jumped, I hit a plastic cup or something and I thought I actually hit him.

All in all, a pretty shitty day in terms of driving.

I want some time off, but college have just set three pieces of coursework, and my practical assessment is imminent, and my supervisor wants to review my portfolio. Pissed-off Buddleia is pissed off. Oh, and I just got a letter from the blood donation service, telling me to stay away until i stop being anaemic - but I eat plenty of meat, vegetables and cereals; what the hell is wrong? Now I'm confused and worried as well.

I was in third block today, which is Algebra III. All of a sudden, every little thing pissed me off. Like, I wrote the number 7 instead of a 5, and I wanted to throw the notebook across the room in a fit of rage. I was angry at nothing, yet everything at the same time. And then, it hit me: this is withdrawal. I felt better once I realized what it is, but in that way that like knowing you have cancer makes you feel better because you know what's causing you pain. It sucked like hell.

You do realize that Energy drinks cause more harm than good, right? They have more side effects than you know, alcohol? My boyfriend did a study at his university on Energy drinks and children who drink energy drinks before they are teenagers are more likely to have less brain cells and have more problems with their hearts and liver before they're 21? Yeah, I accept the law that no one under the age of 14 should buy energy drinks. No child should drink energy drinks in the first place. Especially if you drink it everyday. So, you know, think twice of buying the drinks for your brother.

Or don't listen to me and have your brother die early. Either way, I stopped caring about your whiny argument that Energy drinks can't be sold to children.

No, I'm not going to hit you back because fighting is immature, regardless of gender. Unless you've gone beyond provoking something and you are really about to try and beat the shit out of me, I'm not going to return fire. It has nothing to do with you being a girl. It could be a guy who hit me. I'm still not going to hit you back.

That, and hitting a girl, regardless of what offending female thinks, will cause me to be labeled a total scumbag and complete lowlife who picks on girls to look tough. That's some schoolyard bullshit right there.

Having a girl who LIKES you is one thing.

But when they OBSESS over you, it's another entirely.

In my case the girls (yes, two, which is double trouble) are constantly texting me, IMing me on Facebook, and are all touchy-feely when I've made it clear I am NOT interested in them. It's almost like they think clinging to me will make me change my mind when, in fact, the opposite is true: it makes me want to draw away from them even more.

Then let her down gently and offer to be her friend. If this keeps on, both of you are going to be miserable, and I'm sure she'd rather have your friendship than nothing at all. She probably isn't as bad as you think.

Believe me, I'm in a similar situation. I don't like the girl, but she REALLY likes me and I can tell, which is saying a lot because I am naturally oblivious. I'm not attracted to her in any way, but I'm still being her friend because she isn't all that bad. I've made it clear that my affections lie elsewhere, and her friends know that I am not interested. It's only a matter of time before the crush goes away.

PP: Cutting and its implications. Frankly, if someone chooses to cut themself, it's their choice. If they blame the cutting on you, it's just an attempt at escaping the guilt and consequences of their actions. If they can't deal with reality, that is their problem. sure, such people should get your help and support, and if you can keep them from hurting themselves, that's great, do it. But ultimately, it's their problem. If what they demand is more than you're prepared to give, well, shit happens.

EDIT: From what you guys are saying, it sounds like they're pretty much blackmailing you with this. "Be with me or I'll cut myself"? Not good.

I've thought about cutting myself because I hear the endorphin rush feels warm and fuzzy. Sometimes if I get a exceptionally bad nosebleed I'd just feel better for some reason. Well I assume it's the endorphins and not "Lawl, you snort coke." jokes from my friends.

Grammer does not think he's drinking. Grammer has a cold, is on some dubious cold medicine for the heck of it and has gotten too much sugar.

But drinking sounds like a good idea. Maybe the whisky will burn away the cold. Sounds like a good experiment.

Then think that it's miraculously a free day for me and that I will be able to work. Which then means I have to waste time and credit explaining that, no I cannot work that day, like I haven't been able to work it for months now. Not sure why you thought anything had changed, when it does I will let you know, until then just keep my regular shifts!

*Punts Jetray.*
There's no bad topic, you just have to be creative. Some things might not immediately catch your attention, but that just means you have to work a little. A quest story? There's so much you can do with that!
600-1000 words is more than enough. The assignments we get at Uni are all supposed to be 400 words. You can do a fuckload in that amount of words. In fact, it has its own genre, called microfiction, and writing them well can get you published. Though there's probably also a practical reason. Would you want to read through a lot of long, tedious and not always well written stories? Or have them read out loud, if that's how it works? Though not. 600-1000  words is completely reasonable.

PP: The work ethic of some of the kids in my class, were supposed to be serving lunch until the moment those gates close, not sitting, tucked away in the back corner talking gossip and texting on your cell phones 20 minutes before lunch ends. It eventually ends up with just me, or just me and maybe 1 or 2 other kids serving food while they sit on their asses, if it wasn't for me and the odd other few kids helping out, kids wouldn't be buying stuff, because it would look like we were closing, or closed, if kids don't buy stuff, we don't get money to buy more supplies and food to make, if we don't get more stuff to make food, kid's don't buy stuff, we don't get a class. Every little bit of money helps.

PP: People who text CONSTANTLY. Can't you just save what your going to say, and actually say it in person? Also, you're holding a phone! If you have the free time to text, then you have the free time to talk.

I know that when I have texting, I'm texting almost constantly, but that's just because I can't talk to my girlfriend on the phone every waking moment, like I would prefer, so I text. Although, the reason I can't talk all the time is so I can free up my hands to do things, as the kids in your class are failing to do.

I text constantly because it is easier. And you can't always save what you have to say. "Oh, hi. I came over to ask if I could come over." Besides, I do prefer talking face to face. I ABHOR talking on the phone. It's awkward and uncomfortable and just plain unpleasant, and before you say anything, I felt that way BEFORE I started texting.

I guess it depends on the person texting. The kids in my class will be in the middle of preparing the mise en place and pull out their freaking cell phones to text.
Then I guess I never really have anybody to text, my one friend is deprived of newer technology, and to be frank, news of the world around us, my other friend has a cell, but doesn't text I think, and my other friend also has a cell, but is usually on MSN messenger, so we just talk on there.
And then all the stuff I would want to talk about with my friends isn't really anything worth texting in the middle of class for. Like, the stuff that can wait. The kids who text in the middle of class always have something to talk about that's more important then getting their job done, like gossip, "Relationships", and smoking a huge bag of weed at the party the just went to. XD
But eh, whatever! :D

Texting is fine as long as it's at an appropriate time. Appropriate times include: in the middle of class, a movie, prom, a date, etc.

HAHA, just kidding! Class, I can understand, even though it's still against the rules.

One night, my friend and I went to see a movie (Zombieland, no less) and he was texting. During the previews, I was just like, wtf. But when he was texting during the movie itself, I knocked it out of his hand. He was like "What in the hell?" and picked it back up. The second time, I just grabbed it and stuck it in my pocket.

The same friend and another friend made a video confronting the problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXdtAQu6GbM
The one I went to the movies with is the one on the right. He DEFINITELY has a problem with his phone. The audio is shit, but whatever.

"Why in the HELL weren't you at drill practice?"
"I was in a coma for six weeks."
"THAT'S NOT A GOOD ENOUGH EXCUSE, I WANT A BETTER ONE, DAMMIT!"

I'm not sure if that's what you were alluding to, but it's how I understood it.


As for driver's license, yes, yes you do. Because when you get it, people will start asking for rides, your parents will make you go to the store every twenty minutes because now they don't have to do it, and you'll be expected to take care of yourself rather than being babysat.

Nah, just kidding. A driver's license is a shit-ton of responsibility, but it's so worth it. I can't imagine not having my license and car. If I lost my car, I'd probably die.

I don't hate the country. I hate the little scumbags who do that kind of stuff. They deserve nothing less than to have the shit beat out of them.

Last year, I think, there was a news report about two kids--19 and 20 years old--kidnapping a 6-month-old puppy, putting it in an oven, and watching it as the poor thing baked to death. The assholes recorded it and showed it to neighborhood kids.

I admit--unashamedly--that I was close to tears when I saw that.

However, it's kinda sad that I have more compassion for an animal than I do for people. You hear about someone being stabbed to death. Wow that sucks. A child is killed. Aww, man, that really blows. A 100% innocent animal--especially a puppy or kitten--is maliciously and brutally murdered. WHAT IN THE HELL IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?!

See how I made the death of an animal seem so much worse than that of a person? Yeah, that's exactly what I'm talking about. I don't regret it, I just think it strange.

I can't stand to hear about cases of animal abuse. It hurts too much. I despise the ASPCA commercials because the animals are so sad, so hurt, and just want someone to love them. Instead, they were beaten, neglected, maimed, and, in too many instances, killed. That's a miserable way to die, I just know it.

I can't imagine what would have happened to my dog if we hadn't taken him in. It was pretty clear he'd been abandoned (not neglected or abused, just dropped off and left to fend for himself) and we almost threw him out. Whenever he's being a royal pain in the ass, I think, he could have been dead on the side of the road.

Unfortunately, that's the reality for many animals. Dead because no one cared enough.

PP: The fact that economy is on the skids so The Great British Public are screaming blue bloody murder about the General Election next year and how Labour are not getting in again next time as they screwed everything up. Ergo the Conservatives will get in, and they screwed the economy the last time THEY were in power. This is not a Two Party Democracy- there's hundreds of parties and independents but for some reason most people forget that.
PP2: Less than half the people who CAN vote DO vote. People fought and died for the right to vote, it's free and it it's quick. But no, they won't get off their fat lazy arses to put a cross in a box with a pencil, yet they will spend money to vote for celebrities I've never heard of ballroom dancing, skating or whatever the latest coin spinner from "reality" telly is. The ONLY way to screw the system is to vote. If you don't vote then the status quo continues because the two main parties have activists who will vote and despite being few in number there is so little resistance that's all that is needed. If you've no one to vote for then apply Robert A. Heinlein's Law of Democracy: go to the polling booth, work out which candidate you despise the most and vote AGAINST them. Last Scottish Elections I took great pleasure voting against both The Christian Alliance and the B.N.P.

I can't stand to hear about cases of animal abuse. It hurts too much. I despise the ASPCA commercials because the animals are so sad, so hurt, and just want someone to love them. Instead, they were beaten, neglected, maimed, and, in too many instances, killed. That's a miserable way to die, I just know it.

I can't imagine what would have happened to my dog if we hadn't taken him in. It was pretty clear he'd been abandoned (not neglected or abused, just dropped off and left to fend for himself) and we almost threw him out. Whenever he's being a royal pain in the ass, I think, he could have been dead on the side of the road.

Unfortunately, that's the reality for many animals. Dead because no one cared enough.

[/heartwrencher]
I feel the same way, about the caring more about animal deaths more than that of human deaths, I think its because you think "Well humans die all the time..." and people do some bad stuff to other humans, but you can do just as much horrible stuff to an animal then a human, like cut it open and put drugs in it, put it in an oven, and other such horrible stuff, since it's smaller and such, and when you think of a dog getting killed or something, chances are your going to think of the most adorable little animal being killed brutally, and what else is that with animals, the only reason you would kill/torture one is for fun, for the most part there isn't a reason, just for entertainment, there's usually more reason for such violent killings on humans. But anyways, I'm rambling... XD

Which means I miss out on pretty much everything with my friends.

I've been trying the same thing on my ingrown toenails (yes, NAILS, as in two of them, or four, depending on how you look at it) for about two years now. Still hurts like hell.

I wore shoes that were a half-size too small for about six months and that's what caused it.

PP: Our JROTC sergeant--a grown man--talking about me--one of his cadets--behind my back. To our group commander, he accused me of being 'undedicated' because I missed practice. Does that seem unprofessional to anyone else?

Why did I miss practice? I WAS SICK. In addition to barely being able to move, county policy says if you aren't in attendance at school, you can't participate in any after-school activities--including practices--on that day.

Look, you asshole, if I wasn't dedicated to your Goddamn team, I'd have quit a LONG time ago. He's been a MAJOR pain in my ass for close to four years now. But instead of quitting, I sucked it up and stuck it out for my friends and my team.

One thing is for certain: I am NOT dedicated to him, just the team. If everyone on the team decided to quit, I'd leave in a heartbeat. I just wish he could understand that my loyalties do not lie with him.

PP: Waited for about an hour for my L4D2 Demo to download, only to be horribly disappointed with it. XD

EDIT:
PP: OK, so at my Chef's Training class today, I was the one who was in charge of putting the boneless ribs in the oven for our ribwiches (Delicious by the way), I put them in for about 15, or 20 minutes, they came out pretty good, just ever so slightly burnt, hell, not even burnt, crispy, one person even remarked them looking perfect.
I prepared two batches of the ribs, because the high school has two campus', and the other one doesn't have a kitchen for making such stuff, so having given the batch to the person who takes them down to the other campus to be sold. Lunch comes, and we completely sell out of the ribwiches, the guy who went down to the other campus comes back with them all, saying they were burnt. Yeah, what the fuck. The ones I prepared for our campus were the exact same in terms of how well they were cooked and such, and we sold ALL OF THEM. I tried one too, it was, as I said, a wee bit crispy, but other than that, flawless.

PP: The other day I was the other campus to help sell stuff, we were selling Chicken burgers, one kid comes back wanting to get his girlfriends money back because it had dirt in it, he showed us. It wasn't dirt. Yeah, we drop our god damn chicken burgers on the floor and put them back on. Dirt is also pitch black like something that's been burnt. Our chicken burgers are breaded, chances are some of the coating fell off onto the pan when we put them in the oven to cook them, got burnt, and probably got onto the burgers. Some people don't have any god damn common sense.

I'm usually a straight A-B student, so I'm rather scared if/for when my parents see the grade. It's more due to the fact that I missed about a week from being sick, but I couldn't help that. I've tried talking to my teacher and asking for help/or how something is done, but he's been too busy to help. He's also having family troubles (his dad is rather ill) and he's more of a 'figure it out for yourself' type, yet I've tried that (which is what I usually do) but nothing is proving helpful :\

PP: When you start something as a joke, and people latch onto it and just keep on running.

Last year, I started wearing the ugliest sweaters I could find (Sweaters given to me by my grandmother on christmas, sweaters given to my mother on christmas, ridiculous things) every Thursday. I told my friend Nick about it, and we decided to call it "Awesome sweater Thursdays." So, every Thursday, we began to wear these sweaters. Eventually, one of our teachers caught on and asked us about it. He thought it was hilarious and joined in. Fast forward a few months, There's an article about "Awesome Sweater Thursdays" in the school newspaper. My friend Nick and I have full credit for starting it, and yet they refuse to interview us so they can claim that it shows school spirit and panther pride and all that bullshit. There is now a group on Facebook for "Awesome sweater Thursdays." It was not created by Nick or me. It is not run by Nick or me. It is not run like Nick or me would run it.  I joined it just to tell them that I didn't like it.

Considering that this is coming from the guy who was kicked out of his parent's house for being too damn lazy to go to school, hasn't been able to hold a job for more than a few months, and does nothing but party, I don't think he has any room to talk.

Well it depends...how old are you?  If you are under 18, not married, and it was not non-consenting sex, then I agree with your friend.  No matter how crappy he may live his life, teenagers should not be having sex, imho.  If they feel they just HAVE to do it, use birth control.  And by birth control, I mean every possible contraceptive.  The Pill, condoms, AND spermicidal lubricant.

Frankly, it is the proper off topic conversations, like the one we just had, that makes the forum funny. They last for maybe a page, then they lose momentum because the conversation is done and the thread automatically goes back on topic. and the rules are never broken in the process. If I remember correctly, the rule did distinguish between inane off topic, like "I SEE PINK BANANANAS!" splattered in the middle of a thread, and a proper conversation that wears itself out fairly quickly. Besides, they liven up the forum, which is much needed.

True dat.
I never understood smoking, what's so attractive about sticking a paper tube stuffed with a dead plant amongst tons of chemicals in your mouth?

I don't smoke. I dip. I blame the redneck in me. After all, I do live in Georgia.
Smokers say dipping is more disgusting, those who do smokeless tobacco say smoking is worse.
I know they're both disgusting habits, and I could quit if I wanted to. What I thought was nicotine withdrawal, I realized later, turned out to be just a caffeine crash. I thought it was withdrawal because I was REALLY angry and that never happens when I crash on caffeine. It was weird.

Anyway, I do it because it relaxes me. It's my dirty little secret and that makes me feel good, I don't know why. And I know the damage smokeless tobacco can do, which is why I don't plan on doing it forever. I have a friend who has done it since the 5th grade (he's a 10th grader now) and he has serious gum loss.

But tonight, this girl who is a heavy smoker started giving me some long lecture about how disgusting dip is, that she'd never kiss someone who had a pinch in, et cetera. And I KNOW how bad it is. She acts like she knows all about my habit. I do it three times a week, maybe four, normally skipping weeks so my lips and gums don't hurt. I've gone through two cans since July, where some people can do that in a week.

And shit, I wouldn't kiss someone who had a pinch in, either! I wouldn't kiss someone if I had one in, or if I hadn't brushed my teeth since I last had one. It's gross!

It's just stupid and irritating. My personal opinion is that smoking is, by far, more disgusting. When you smoke, you smell like an ash tray, your teeth turn yellow and black and all those other disgusting colors, your clothes, hair, and skin smell terrible and turn colors, and you cough like you've been in a coal mine for three years. There's tar in your lungs, you can't breathe, and your stamina suffers big time, and you're more susceptible to respiratory diseases.

I'm not saying dip is 'safer' or 'less gross.' It's still disgusting and a dangerous habit. But it mainly affects your mouth. It hasn't begun to visually damage me yet. It's personal preference as to whether I'd rather lose my teeth and jaw or my lungs and throat.

I know I should quit. But I don't want to. Not that I can't, I just don't want to. Not yet.

At least you get clean carpets.

As far as I can see, there's no point whatsoever to tobacco products. I don't really give a damn if people use it, and would probably smoke myself if it wasn't so damn expensive (yes, it is) and you got the beautification of your features. And the lovely smell. If they got rid of that, I'd start. Maybe. If I could be bothered. Already got the long cancer covered.

Ultimately, pretty much anything that is unhealthy for you is completely and entirely pointless. Unhealthy fast foods? Our bodies are perfectly capable of being sustained by healthy vegetables and lean meats. Caffeine? About the only useful thing about caffeine is as a pain reliever in migraine medicine. Sugary drinks? There's plenty of water. Alcohol? Again, water. Emerging research shows that the damage some people receive from alcohol--even small amounts--outweighs the benefits. Television? Go outside and play.

There's a difference. Chewing tobacco is like gum. You actually chew on it and spit the juice. In The Sandlot when the kids are at the amusement park, and one of them pulls out the Big Chief? That was chewing tobacco.
Dip is like chewing tobacco shredded and put in a can. You don't chew it, you just put it in your lip and let it sit there. Essentially the same effect, just a little less involved. I think chewing tobacco may have less additives and stuff.

Finding someone who actually does chewing tobacco is pretty rare. I admit, I used to not know the difference, but there is one, insignificant as it is.

Burglary type robberies or mugging type ones? If the former, then the solution is simple- keep an item near your bed that can effectively be used as a weapon, but isn't technically one. For example, a baseball bat. That ain't a weapon, it's sporting gear. ;{D

If the latter, um... good luck?

PP- Ex's who you choose to forgive, even when they probably don't deserve it. Who then contact you after years, being all nice and 'wanting' to catch up, have a double date with you and your current partner, etc. Who then say "oh by the way, could you go pick this up for me, I know you are way busier then I am, you can do it in your own time, but I'm just not allowed to show my face at their house". So you go to do it, (just because you are that innocent and naive to actually think that he has changed for the better, and is just trying to tie up loose ends) to only then be told, at the door, that he had stuff of theirs, and that he wasn't getting his stuff back till they got theirs. So then you say "sorry", go home, call your Ex, who then says that they were going to post it to them, and didn't think it would be an issue. So you tell him kindly please tell the whole truth next time before trying to get you to do anything again. You then arrange to meet with him the next day, so you can talk, and give the peoples property back. He then messages you saying "Oh Shi*, I have forgotten their stuff, and that I had planned to meet someone today, when are you free next?"

I DON'T THINK SO JERK, I now remember why I broke up with you. :)

PP: (Which is also kind of an AP when you read what I did) So today, I had to go to the washroom during class, so my teacher gives me the attendance to take to the office as well since they are both really close to each other. Flash forward 5 minutes, and I'm walking past my schools front door. There are a couple steps going up, then the doors to outside. I look, and notice a girl( not sure what grade/how old) but she's on crutches attempting to climb the stairs. She was just about at the top, so I run past her, and hold the front door open for her cause she was struggling. The whole PP about this is that my friends just think I'm an evil asshole and never know the good things I do, like this.

Okay, maybe it's regional differences, I don't know. But I've seen several mixed-race children who were accepted by nobody, and it only got worse as we got older.
I played soccer with a girl a long time back who was mixed race. Her dad was black and her mom was white. She was a perfectly nice girl, as were both of her parents (her dad was a US Army Ranger). But in the bigoted, stereotypical, IGNORANT place I lived, (or almost any southern town, for that matter) she wasn't accepted, nor were her parents.

Let me remind you that I've lived in Georgia my entire life. You want me to rephrase MY statement? How about you rephrase yours and take out the accusatory tone. I DON'T have a problem with it, but too many people where I live DO.

YOU USED THE WORD TORTUROUS. HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO TAKE IT. That's great that YOU accept it, but if your parents want to disown you because you're dating out of race THEN SO BE IT. It's not THEIR decision to tell you who to love and WHAT RACE YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER IS. I know Georgia. I know Virginia. I know New York. There is RACISM everywhere. If WE don't change, then this world won't either. Tell that to my boyfriend who almost DIED because he was almost beaten to death by a bunch of skinheads. Tell that to all the Native Americans I know that were raped by the white kids in my community. It's not because of RACE that children are not accepted by. What needs to change it the IGNORANCE that everyone has on race. Accept the people for who they ARE not based on their skin. THAT'S ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.

I admit that I'm hoping you didn't just go up to her and say "you dress like a whore". No girl will actually listen to you if you say that, and if they do they are very likely to slap you/hit you really hard.
On the other hand, if you go up and nicely suggest that different clothes might suit her more, or that you're worried about how guys might seeing her, she might actually listen.

They pull it out. And they drop it into the sink so it can be washed away. Only it doesn't. It sits there, stuck. And I am not touching it. It's usually when they're brushing their hair, and they pull it off the brush.

Oh, wait, I remember.

PP #2: Drama at work. It's more of an irritation than something that gets in the way, but it's still annoying. This girl I work with is dating a total douche. Said douche has been an even bigger one since I started working there. He has serious trust issues. Anyway, they got in an argument last night and he said he was going to hit me.

Let me clarify that I have ZERO interest in this girl.

Now, this guy's scrawny. I'm not. I'm 6'1, about 190 pounds, and her boyfriend is about 5'9 and 120 pounds soaking wet. But I'm not going to lose my job because of a grown man (he's 20, I'm 17) acting like a 7th grader. But if he so much as takes a swing at me, I'm calling the cops.

PP: My (Homosexual) friend HAS to play as the female characters in video games, seriously, I'm not kidding, ALWAYS, it's because Male characters are to cliche for him or some BS, I can understand if its a Gears of War character, with them being hulking brutes on steroids, and he thinks all Male video game characters are like Gears characters.
Right now he's playing Uncharted 2 for the first time, and he just had to unlock a skin as one of the female characters to put over Nate, I can understand if you've beaten the game, but doing it the first time you played the game just ruins it. Whenever we go to rent a game, first ones he goes for are the ones with the females on the cover, regardless of whether there shitty or not. What really bugs me is that the female characters in a lot of these video games are just as cliche as the male cliche characters.

I think most of the time the female characters are MORE cliche than the males. Guys are pretty dynamic throughout games. In one genre, sure, they may be all the same.

But women? It seems like in 99% of video games, the females are the character in distress, or the ultra hottie with a gun.

MC, that's because sex sells.  Honestly, I don't want to play a game where the majority of the women are average not great at anything girls.  The guys in games are 100% cliche.  You never play the average joe going about his day.  Unless you play the SIMS, which is fucking stupid.  The whole point of games is to enjoy just a touch of the fantasy world.

You can have games that have good looking girls, but that are actually more realistic. I'm so sick of seeing massive perfect breasts everywhere, that are in these tiny clothes that would not actually hold anything in. A game should be just as enjoyable for people with a girl who was pretty, but had normal size breasts, and clothes that actually covered her!
My annoyance is not just at the female characters though, as I do dislike the whole "Males are always tall, with defined jaw line, perfect facial hair, and defined muscles all over". BUT AT LEAST MALES ARE NORMALLY COVERED!

Well, I prefer playing as female characters in computer games because, let's face it, if you'll be staring at the same CGI arse for several hours, it might as well be one you'd want to look at.

That said, I would prefer a bit more realism when it comes to characters.

I also prefer to play females in non-computer games (by which I mean pen-and-paper RPG type stuff), but that's mainly because I find it hilarious that the other players, even after several months, keep getting 'my' gender wrong.

I just played through dragonage as an elf chick and she was normally proportioned, maybe even a bit on the flat size, and I found I preferred that. But even humans in that game are decently proportioned. Bioware is pretty good at making the warrior women look like warrior women.

Of course, to compensate, there's always Morrigan, but she's a mage and all mages are sluts >.<

That's what I'm getting at with my PP about my friend always playing the Female. He thinks ALL, and I mean 95% of all male video game characters are cliche, when a lot of them really aren't. But when you look at a female character, you got Skimpy outfits and giant breasts, he somehow doesn't think that's cliche.
He loses interest in a game, most of the time, if he finds out you play as a male. And then the Uncharted 2 thing just pissed me off, I don't think Nate Drake is cliche, he's a wise-cracking adventurer in Jeans and a shirt, not some steroid abusive War Veteran out for a blood vengeance with armor that's made from an old Ford F-150 that's 7 feet tall. Only time he plays as a male is if he's a pretty Japanese Final Fantasy Character. I personally couldn't give to shits about who I play as in a game, so long as I have fun.

I have a friend who knows a girl that is a biology major, but doesn't believe half the shit she's taught because she's a hard-nosed fundamentalist Christian. She says it's all fake because the Bible is right about creation, and that evolution is crap, among other things.

Oooh, I see. So you can call science--based on hard facts, research, and experimentation--false, yet your beliefs are based on a centuries-old text that has inspired more wars, hatred, and murder than any other in human history?

I mean, I'm a Christian and all, but I can't see calling science bullshit when it's proven. I believe in God and Jesus because of what I've experience in my life, not because a man in a robe reading from a book told me to.

I guess hating the French depends on your reasoning. If you hate them just for being French, then yeah, that's whatever. If you hate them for a legit reason--like what those fuckers did at the beginning of the war on terrorism--then whatever.

It's like an American saying they hate the British because they are rude, pretentious, and total douchebags to tourists, versus hating them because the Germans nearly beat them in WWII.

PP: So, there's this class that I have to get for my major. It's a prerequisite for several other classes in my major, and it's only offered once only in the spring semester. Also, it's available to anyone as an elective and there are no prerequisites. Registration started today, and according to my adviser, who is also teaching that class, it was going to start at midnight, and I should jump on that class at midnight. I stayed up until four (okay, I probably would have anyway, but that was my excuse) and registration hadn't started, so I went to bed. When I got up at ten, registration had started. I registered for three classes without any problems, but one of the other two said I didn't have a high enough test score, even though I did, and the other had a cap of zero. Yes, you read that right, no students can take that class. Guess what class it is? The class that everyone wants. I got the first one sorted out and talked to my adviser about the other, but I don't know when it will be fixed.

If this wasn't such a comedy of errors I'd probably be more annoyed.

PP: I was in cooking class today, and there are these two waste of space type girls in our class, they don't do much except clean the occasional dish with the washer, and they just walk around making weird as hell grunting noising, and be all around annoying. So today I got everything done, I'm enjoying my book, and they're out in a hall next the the kitchen, they start coming in from the hallway laughing louder than whats necessary, I didn't know it was them at first, so I looked up to see who it actually was, I see them and kicked myself mentally for not have realized it at first, and looked back down to my book. One of them walks up, standing on the other side of the table I'm sitting at, and says "You better not shake your fucking head at me.". Yeah, what the hell is your god damn problem you cow? I wasn't shaking my head at you, and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if anybody did, I was at a loss for words, ignored it, and went back to my book.

Left 4 Dead's graphics were alright. I think the real reason most people care so much about graphics is that when they see good graphics they think "Wow, these guys put a lot of effort into the game.", where as with a game with bad graphics they will think "Did they even try?". In the case of some games, the game might have great graphics, but dull gameplay, like the original Assassin's Creed, great graphics, just incredibly repetitive with a shit ending.

EDIT:
PP: When somebody says "BRB" on MSN or whatever, and are gone for an half an hour or more. When I see "BRB" I expect them to only be around 10 minutes, or less. If your gonna be longer, it only takes 5 seconds to change your status. In the case of my friend, about an hour and a half ago she said she would "BRB", so I waited, occupied by my game, an hour later I say "Are you still there?" to which she replies "Kinda", Half an Hour later, she's actually back, she said she was talking on the phone, if she was there to say "Kinda" she could have easily changed her status. When she came back, she said "BRB" again, comes back a few seconds later, and had to go. She's about the only one I ever talk to on MSN.

What the fuck. Why do I have to clean MY room? Are my sister's friends going to SLEEP in there? If so, that's just weird. If it was my 11th grade sister, it'd be cool. But no. It's my freshman sister. And all her freshman friends.

I like my room messy because I know where everything is. Duffel bag? Under the bed. Keys, phone, Carmex, wallet, and watch? On top of my extremely messy dresser. Shoes? Under my desk.

Then my mom fucks everything up my making me put it all where SHE wants it, and I forget where that is.

Mothers just don't understand how the teenage male mind works.

You're gonna miss that during college. I know I do.

I don't know about that. I'll miss my mother, I know that for a fact. But I don't know that I'll miss her nagging me about where my stuff goes.
I'm like any guy. My room is a mess 90% of the time, which I am perfectly fine with. The only indication I have that it's time to clean is when it takes me more than five minutes to find a pair of socks--dirty, of course.
But even when my room IS clean, my mom nags be about where to put my stuff. The floor is clean, the closet is (dis)organized enough to close the door, and the dust bunnies have gone into full retreat. But that's not good enough. My shoes can't go in front of my bed, they have to go on the other side, between the bed and the wall.

It's that kind of stuff that really sucks.

Stocked

–verb (used with object)
50.    furnished with a stock or supply.
51.    furnished with stock, as a farm with horses, cattle, etc.
52.    laid up in store, as for future use.
53.    fastened to or provided with a stock, as a rifle, plow, bell, anchor, etc.
54.    put in the stocks as a punishment.
–verb (used without object)
55.    laid in a stock of something (often fol. by up).

But, yeah, I know what you mean.

PP: At my old high school, there was a class called "Self Discovery", where, basically, a seventy year old man taught you about life and yourself. This man, who has never been married and is an extreme christian, teaches you about love and how to properly live your life. He is a fountain of knowledge, for sure (Not sarcasm), but rather than take everything he says with a grain of salt, the people who learn from him just touch their toes and accept his teachings then spray them on other people like some kind of educational enema. They assume that they're completely changed, simply because they've taken this class, when they're not. The damn class is like some kind of Fight Club, because by the end of the class, the kids are so willing to believe what this man says, he could tell them that to truly be happy, they have to end their lives, and by the end of the day, stores would be sold out of razorblades.

And, now that he's retiring, he's giving the reins over to two younger teachers, both of which are extremely strong in their belief of the Lord and look down their noses at anyone who doesn't (Both of them openly mocks atheists during their classes for just being so blind.), and one of which who simply feels the need to impose his will on others. This school will be pumping out idiots like some kind of douchemachine.

The only thing I can compare it to is a black hole. Supposedly, if you watch someone fall into a black hole, the closer they get the more they slow down. It gets to a point that, from an outsider's perspective, they will never actually fall into it.

Except I'm the one falling, but I can feel myself slowing down. Monday was fine. Tuesday was iffy. It's 9:46 on Wednesday, and it feels like I've been awake for sixteen hours, but it's been like two and a half.

Apparently there is a two page career aspect to it that I forgot about until recently. Hopefully I can use a job from the movie Boiler Room for that part.

If it's the same person, I'm gonna be pissed if it has the logo. It just goes to show how some Mac users are full of themselves. It's pretty much saying "This lovely family picture was made on a Mac.

They censor EVERYTHING that could be slightly offensive, like "Ass", and "Damn it". I've heard people say "Damn It" on TV Commercials, but they can't say it on late night comedy shows? The Odd thing is that they've censored just about everything. Except Dennis Leary's Merry Fucking Christmas.

And that's why you do not ever drag your finger along your blade. There is another way. Hold the balde in front of you, parallel to the body. Place a finger on it and pull the finger towards you. Not along the blade, but just towards you. If there is resistance, lugging, when you pull, it's sharp. If your finger glance off, it's not.

I imagine it would have been the police who sprayed the pepper spray. :P

PP: Some of the lazy assholes in the kitchen. Today I was sauteing some onions, had to get some cooking oil to do so, and I went over to the grill where a student was making some breakfast sandwiches for kids to buy, I asked if I could borrow some of the oil, I grabbed the oil, took it back to realize that we already had some, so I took it back, then we needed some more, so I went to get more, the kid at the grill starts freaking out on me for constantly going over to the grill, and getting in his way to get the oil, I had only been to the grill twice, and I didn't get in his way at all, I'm tall, and have long arms, I merely reached over across the shelf and grabbed it.
Then he start's acting all tough in front of his stupid ass friends. Next time he gets pissy at me, the only thing cooking on the grill is gonna be his fucking face.

I don't recommend that course of action. Despite what the cartoons portray, the smell of human flesh searing on a grill is not a pleasant one.

I'm not trying to act tough, though it may seem that way, I'm trying to act pissed, this kid pisses me off so much I want to kick his ass, though I doubt I actually will I just wouldn't be afraid to do so if I needed to, but he has no reason to get pissed at me, yet he does, I can't tolerate a kid like him.
And I really wouldn't gain anything from acting tough on the internet. XD
But this kid is an asshole to everybody for no reason, teachers do fuck all about it, and nobody should have to put up with his shit, I've let people walk over me like he has for too long, and I can't trust anybody else to do anything about it. If he continues to do stuff like what he did to me, and others, I'm gonna have to take it into my own hands and do something, whether its getting angry at him, or punching him in the face. Even if I fail, at least I did something, other than nothing.

Well that's in my opinion, I just got really bored of the game, the single player, though fun, wasn't jaw-dropping awesome like Modern Warfare 2, most of the levels were boring, just doing the same stuff over and over, with the occasional boss, and then the multiplayer was boring as well.

Green Day is basically just wannabe punk. Their stuff can be kinda catchy if you're not caught up in the whole "Blargh I hate them for pretending to be something they're not blargh." which apparently everyone is stuck on. Although, can't say I blame them when it's their image being imprinted on society by all of those kids who don't know how to dress themselves so they have to learn from bands.

He's really into anime, and manga, and conveniently nobody seems to sell any fucking anime on DVD of any kind, and then the only Mangas that can be found are the typical mangas you can find anywhere (Bleach, Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, et cetera) none of which he reads. Agh!

EDIT:
PP: Re-runs. I swear, the same episode of Mythbusters has been on for the past 5 days (The one with Liquid Nitrogen Myths), and then they show episodes of Simpsons from '89, and the early '90s because they're Christmas related.

PP: Driving in holiday traffic. I got honked at four times. Once because I was making a left turn into a right-hand lane and I was waiting for that lane to clear. Good thing my dad was with me or I might have been very rude.

Another time was when I was turning left into a parking place. I turned my blinker on and waited for this lady to pass me. The guy behind me honked at me because he was impatient.

Two of the times I got honked at, I had no clue what it was for but I swear, the next time someone honks at me, they are going to eat their own tires.

What happened was I was in the middle of my sentence and my aunt walked in and interrupted me. I said, "Umm, excuuuuse me, but I was telling a story." My said, "Well excuse me all to hell." And my grandmother just glared at me. I shot my mom a look and she just rolled her eyes.

PP: Idiots on Boxing day. I went to the mall today, or I guess yesterday, since its 12 AM here, and there's all these stupid teenagers walking around slow as hell, it's boxing day, it's freaking crowded, I don't think people want to be stuck behind a bunch stupid kids like a bunch of people stuck behind the 70 year old man on the highway. And of course since it's so crowded I have to wait for a window of opportunity to come my way, that being a kiosk with not a whole lot of people around it allowing me to pass around the kids.

PP: There wasn't a whole lot of good deals on Boxing day either. Went to EB Games, and all the games on sale were not really that big of a discount, or were just crappy games nobody would buy in the first place. We also have huge book store, which was also only selling the crap nobody wanted for cheap. There's a bunch of Mangas there as well, but the ones I was interested in were 16 bucks, plus tax, and I only have 25 bucks. And I can't buy anything with $9 bucks.

PP: EB games. Some of the prices are a total rip off. Why is Call of Duty 4 $64 used? It costs more used than it costs World at War new.

I bought Yellow Submarine a couple days back and when I got it, the damn DVD didn't fit in the case it was shipped in. So, I have to replace it. Nothing irritates me more than replacing a DVD case for a DVD. I'd much rather have them in their original cases because that's who I am.

It makes me very OCD about my DVDs and I hate when someone asks me to borrow them because I know there are going to be scratches and whatever on them when it gets returned. Dx

I think 'introverts' was the wrong word. More like lazy fuckers who don't care to do anything socially outside of school.
Of course, the one friend I really wanted to come over, I can't blame him. His mother has been really bitchy lately. It's like you have to put in a written request form three weeks in advance. His mom has gotten more uptight the further we get into senior year.

PP: "Get Naked For (Environmental Fundraiser Here)!"

Ladies,
Getting naked for dodgy hipster "go green!" movements is just not efficient or necessary. You can keep your dignity and preserve the environment at the same time. Perhaps cut down on how many Starbucks sleeves you go through, the amount of paper you're printing your naked arse on or how much electricity goes into your laptop/phone/ipod/camera/bionic arm/whatnot. And let's be honest, most of you shouldn't be featured on a calendar wearing nothing but elm twigs and a coy look. Especially when you're probably unwittingly sending facebook invites to large portions of your own family.

P.S. Please note, too, that not a lot of guys are participating in these things. Thanks for setting back the cause of not objectifying women in the media! Just slap some T&A on it and see if it sells!  :humpingparrot:

Sincerely,
Lorinda

PP: Douchebag drivers.

I was doing some grocery shopping for my parents and used their van (amazing how rarely people screw with me when I am in my truck) ...and this guy was six inches behind my rear bumper the whole way with ice and snow on the ground. I could see him screaming at me and shaking his fist. When I pulled into the grocery store parking lot, he followed and rolled down his window, telling me he wanted to kick my ass.

I jumped the hell out of the van, threw my coat back inside and waited. My adrenaline was cranked, I was ready to go.
Guy roars down the parking lot and slides mostly into a parking space, nearly hitting a couple other cars.
His door opens ...
...I wait.
...nothing happens.
Guy closes his door and leaves.

PP2: trying to come down from an adrenaline high ...jittery. UGH.

PP: People who stick up for their significant other, even when they're being dumb.

Example: On my facebook, we're having a conversation about "The Grey area of Karmic scales in video games". Someone mentions inFamous, and talks about "How they made a good game, even though it was black and white". Yes, but it's a terrible example in a conversation like that unless you're sticking a big sign into it and saying "What you're NOT TALKING ABOUT AT ALL." I say "Yeah, it was a good game, but it's a bad example here." Which, it was. Her boyfriend says "No, it's a good example because it's only one way or the other." No, It's a fucking bad example because it's not even close to what we're talking about. I get that it's good, but it is, in fact, the polar opposite of what we're talking about, which is a good way to make a game that does NOT do that.

I mean I can handle it if they are just being funny and nice about it, but when they do what these two guys did tonight, gah, I get so annoyed. Also makes me feel very nervouse >.> It's one thing to ask for a number, its another thing to wait outside till I go out and say very.. rude (sexual and gross in my opinion) things to me. Dude, when I say I have a boyfriend it means GO AWAY, I DO NOT WANT TO SLEEP WITH YOU, I DO NOT WANT YOUR NUMBER, I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO WITH ME, whether I have a boyfriend or not (though obviously I do).

She, my friend Justin and I all got one-day suspensions for skipping ONE CLASS, whereas my friend Jeremy and his girlfriend only got in-school suspension because they skipped but "were on campus when they skipped."

It's a whole fucked-up situation but, unfortunately, it would do no good to argue it. At least the administrator who handled it wasn't a condescending douche about suspending me. He just said, "Your record is practically spotless, and it stinks, but it seems like it's always the good kids who get caught the most."

It took all I could do to keep from laughing when he caught me on it. I actually joked when we went to lunch, saying, "Dude, it's gonna suck if we get back to school and we're all suspended for skipping."

PP: So for my Chefs Training class I have to take quite a ride to get to the school, and usually have to wait awhile, and I usually go into the art class to hang out with my friend and his friends while I wait for my ride. Today we were hanging out, I was reading my book, and he decides to just ditch me and go hang out with some of his other friends in elsewhere in the room, he didn't even have the decency to tell me, if he'd asked, instead of ignoring me, then I probably wouldn't mind, and probably just go and wait by myself.
So I sat, and continued to read, occasionally looking up at him to see if he would see me looking at him and realize he's being a dick. Soon after that my ride showed up, and I just left, didn't say bye or anything.

You actually expect someone to sit by a guy who's reading when there's other options? Sitting down with a book is a way of saying people can ditch you, because when you sit down with that book, you signal that you're not really interested in company. Yeah, sure it would have been nice of him to say "I'm going over there", but as you had already withdrawn from his company by reading, can you really blame him?

PP: Just found out that my dad lost his position at the hospital. He's employed by contract through another company, so he wasn't fired. But it was just so sudden and had nothing to do with the economy. The biggest problem is we'll eventually have to move, which isn't as much a problem for as it is for my sisters. However, it alters my college plans dramatically.

So much for University of Hawaii

"My Irish accent has really been coming out."

No. You're a fucking idiot. You don't have an Irish accent, Your parents don't have an Irish accent, you don't have Irish heritage, and you grew up in Michigan. The fact that your dumb ass girlfriend said "Oh, hey, your facial hair looks a little reddish in the right light" doesn't even make you fucking close to Irish.

"You put too much faith in computers"

Yeah? You're a fucking retarded caveman. Have fun banging rocks together so you can start a fire to get that piece of charcoal you need so desperately to draw a picture of a bird standing next to a tower while I take the twenty minutes it took to re-write what I just lost.

"Oh yeah? Well I bet you've never heard of Lasso Girl."

You're right, I haven't heard of Lasso Girl, you inbred piece of bad news. You really think that ANYONE has heard of a superhero that retarded? Besides that, the lasso thing has already been done, and it was just as stupid then as it is now. Does Wonder Woman ring any bells? No, I didn't think so, because your eyes are too far apart for you to even be able to read.

I did, however, get the "Completionist" achievement, which requires that you "Complete a majority of the game."

In other words, "Girl MC likes is in a relationship with [ x ]." And [ x ] is NOT MC.

The good news is that I know it's a sham. She told me that she is simply trying to appease her mother, who is being a super bitch and practically forcing her to date a guy she is friends with, but doesn't love. The bad news is that she is unlikely to compromise her ploy by starting anything with me.

Yeah, that plane just hit the ground.

She even asked me for my advice... I said it wasn't fair to her or the guy her mom wanted her to date. She shouldn't sacrifice her own happiness to appease her mother. And I was being completely impartial, ignoring how much I care for her. I was totally honest and unselfish...

Yeah. This sucks. Hard.

Yeah I guess your right. But it kind of annoys me that they have to entirely take peanuts out. Couldn't they just make one with, and another without peanuts.

And I have no idea who Janice Dickinson is, but I say it's "such a 90's Allergen" because that's pretty much the only allergen I ever heard of growing up in the 90's, in Kindergarten and such. I never hear of it anymore, until recently anyways.

I'm not saying I'm allergic or anything. I'm just saying that they could have just made a peanut free mars bar, and the original one with peanuts, instead of ditching peanuts altogether.

Also, can somebody tell me who Janice Dickinson is? I mean, I know after googling her that she's a model or something like that, but I don't understand Log using her as a response to me saying "Peanuts are such a 90's Allergen".

Anyways, enough of the peanut talk. XD

PP: My friend said "brb" when I was talking to her on MSN, 6 hours ago. T_T

EDIT: She's back. She fell asleep. XD

PP: So I was looking through the guide on TV, and noticed that a show I like is on, I go to the channel it's on, and it wasn't the show the guide said it was, it was actually some shitty looking vampire movie (Surprisingly it wasn't Twilight).
I hate when TV get the program listings wrong. It's all like "Hey, your favorite show is on!", but then you go to the channel, and then it's not actually that show, but something else, and then it's all like "HAHA! GOT YOUR HOPES UP AND SHOT THEM DOWN!". XD

Yeah I guess your right. But it kind of annoys me that they have to entirely take peanuts out. Couldn't they just make one with, and another without peanuts.

Without = Mars bar.
With = Snickers bar.

Yeah, Georgia summers are the best, ain't they?
I was at the US Army infantry museum near at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, and at the museum there's an exhibit that simulates the weather of Vietnam. We went in and I was like, "What, really? This is what it was like? Is that it?" Some guy who was from, like, Maine went "Hol-ee shit, I'm glad I never had to go over there." Apparently, the summertime climates of South Vietnam and Georgia are pretty similar.

Oh, and baseball. I miss baseball. That's another reason I'm done with winter, my wintertime sport (football) is over. College, at least.

First time I got a red ring was the day Halo 3 came out and my oldest friend was coming over from New Zealand with the intention of playing it with me. Had to spend the whole day finding some form of proof of purchase for the warranty from EB, and found one in a bank statement. Since that day I've had a red ring three times. I always bought an extended warranty from EB though, since they just give you a new one straight up rather than send it to repairs to be returned 6 weeks later.

Because no, it's not. I just wanted to talk to the girls. Shit, how many other guys in this world can claim that they're the only male who works among 5 other pretty girls?

But anyway he was like, "If you're gonna waste gas going out there you could at least ask her out." I dunno who the 'her' he's referring to is.

A dead animal is a dead animal regardless of how fresh it is. It doesn't take long for germs to grow on something like that, that's one of the things we learned in Chefs training. And would you as a customer, or maybe a health inspector, really like knowing that in the fridge where they store all there food which people eat, there's a dead animal?

But that aside. XD

PP: So I got Mass Effect 2. I got the Terminus Armor pre-order bonus, but you have to sign up for an EA account, and get the thing off their, so I already have an account on there, so I sign in and go to redeem the code, and it says that I haven't linked my xbox to that account, so I go to link it, and it says that the gamertag is "Taken". It's not impossible that I had once made another account and linked it to that, but in all what bugs me is that they had to do there own lame method of getting it instead of just redeeming the code off marketplace like everything else. But I looked in the forums, and this is a widespread problem, so I'm gonna have to call them about it.

They did it so people who are sharing a console can't share the content, which is fucking cheap of Bioware. I've been losing fucktons of respect for those guys with their most recent games. They're great games, don't get me wrong, but Bioware fucking gouges. I mean, they make a character in the main game who requests that you buy downloadable content? Fuck that. DLC is just a way to keep milking gamers for their money, and it's bullshit.

PP: First day of school, we spent about 3 hours sitting on the floor of an extremely hot room where there was so little space that we had to squish in to fit. This was so one of the teachers could explain what it is to be a year 12 student, stuff about role modeling, how hard we have to study etc etc. which I already knew.

PP2: So then on the same day some year 8's got into a fight, as they do. I jump in and try to break it up, then one of them punched me in the face. At the same time a teacher saw that and thought that I started the fight, and started screaming at me until I finally explained that I was trying to break it up. This teacher doesn't actually like me, despite the fact that I am generally nice to all of my teachers, and so it took a while to establish I was trying to bring justice (it succeeded).

PP3: On the same day I had a hospital appointment in the city (a regular diabetes check up thing). It's about an hour's drive, so we got there, took about an hour to finish. Then on the way home, my friend texted me and said that Mass Effect 2 was released early. Excited, I tell mum we should just drive home quickly and not have coffee or something, and so we drove back, stopping by EB on the way. It was closed.

You're talking to a guy who has no problem eating roadkill that's been kept for several days in a shed.
Guess what meat is? Yup, dead animals. That swan is food if you ask me. As for germs, no exposure means no resistance.

I'd be more curious about where he got that swan in the first place.

Probably either found a roadkill, fished for it or (Assuming Yut's in the States or Canuckistan) shot it.

PP: Only wood I could get my hands on for my new kitchen knife handle was pine, and that stuff is an arse. Yes, it's soft and easy to carve. On the other hand, it splits really easily when you're trying to carve it. Add the miscalculations of how the grain would go when I split it to thin it down, and I went through about 5 or 6 bits before I got both pieces done.

Of course, the fact that it was free makes me not mind- most of those bits were chunks of pallet my dad cut up for firewood, and one bit I found in a skip after the pallet bits ran out.

I would also suggest not doing nothing, because it becomes really hard to then start something again. (I make total sense).

PP-My mum using my computer, and changing all the settings on my browser, and my music player, without my permission. Got on the computer tonight to not only find that she tried to cover up that she was on (poorly might I add), but then had to change everything back. She is also only using my computer (which I payed for myself blah blah blah) because she has downloaded so much junk onto hers that it doesn't work anymore. So now she is just doing the same thing to mine! *rage*

I hate that too, I don't mind people using my computer, but I will hate them if they change any settings or poke through my files. My brother used my computer once and in the space of half an hour changed the default browser to IE, moved 3Gb of music to the recycle bin, deleted a playlist of over a thousand songs and set MSN messenger to automatically log him in on startup. My computer now asks for a login before it goes to the bootloader now.

Yeah, I've been a similar scenario. Why would it matter if it's 'useless'? It's your property, and if somebody damages your property, no matter how useful it may be, something should be done about it. And besides, video games have a use: Entertainment, what do you do if you don't have entertainment? You go crazy, not that crazy is a bad thing. :D

Or you could do what Log said. "Accidentally" break something of hers that could be deemed useless, when she comes to you to ask if you know what happened, give her the same lecture. XD

God, I hate people like that. One kid I knew said he hated halo, but couldn't even find a real reason, aside from the gameplay sucking, and the story sucking, yet he plays Gears of War, a game with no story, paper flat 2D characters, and insanely repetitive gameplay. Halo has a story (Most of it coming from all the comics and books), usually interesting characters, and the gameplay is a bit repetitive, but at least it has some interesting enemies, or vehicular moments to change it up.
Now that's cool if you have your own opinion, whether it be liking, or not liking something, but what's the point of not liking something if you haven't a reason not to like it?
Geeze, look at me. I'm ranting. XD

And yesh, Heavy Rain is really fun.

People act like Christmas is the only day to give presents to people and get together with your family, people act like Thanksgiving (or whatever holiday) is the only day to recognize the things in your life you should appreciate. You really think that people would still be celebrating "The end of Harvest" without all of the ridiculous Halloween marketing? It makes me sad that people feel the need to try and make everyone feel stupid about the happiness they share with those close to them because they don't have it themselves.

I don't think anyone is trying to make you "feel bad." It's great that you have someone to share that feeling with. And like I said, this time of year makes me sick partly because I DON'T have anyone. I thought I was going to this year, but no, some 21-year-old asshole comes along and strikes before I can.

But I digress. Valentine's Day started at an attempt by the Roman Catholic church to prevent teenagers from getting together and doing whatever the hell they wanted in honor of some Roman god. I forgot his name. But, like pretty much every other holiday, it has turned into a commercialized mess. However, you mentioned holidays with a 'target audience?' What other holiday makes the non-targets feel like complete and total shit? I dunno, man, I can't think of one.
