What Grinds Our Gears?; Post things that make you angry!

Post things that make you angry or annoyed.

One of my big issues is people who sign up here and either post once or twice OR never post at all. I mean if you're going to sign up post every once in a while.

Swim practice; why the hell do i have to go TWICE a day even over the holidays?

Nowadays anytime a game gets a sequel its usually worse and shallower than the first.

The fact that I cant have my 360 and my computer connected at the same time? But then why can my bro use his PS3 while im on?

People that refuse to spell words correctly or deploy punctuation as per simple rules that every native speaker of the English language acquired in their primary education drive me bonkers. Firefox checks spelling automatically and Internet Explore has a plugin that accomplishes the same task. Pidgin automatically checks spelling in instant messages and I'd assume AIM can do the same thing. Every email client worth using will give you a helpful red line underneath any word that is misspelled. A typo or two is one thing, but blatant disregard for obvious mistakes that are so easy to correct drives me insane!

I look forward to the day I'm allowed to teach English 101 -- I'll finally be able to take revenge on the world that has annoyed me so.

I can have my PC, Wii, DS and 360 online at the same time. I don't understand why you can only have a PC or 360 online at once. How is it connected to the net?

There's not much that bothers me but mindless fanboyism gets old really quickly.

Nothing bothers me more than people who ask questions with more than obvious answers. I just don't understand it. Most of the time the person will already know the answer, yet proceed to ask somebody just for the sake of it.

Another thing that really "grinds my gears" would have to be the endless number of trend-followers. The music scene is a perfect example of this. 3 years ago, hoardes of teenage girls (and some teenage boys) were obsessed with bands like Simple Plan, Blink 182 etc. Once those bands lost popularity and all these nonsense "metalcore" and "emo" (i.e. cheap, watered-down metal) bands started gaining exposure, they all threw away their Blink CDs and were suddenly fans of Killswitch Engage and My Chemical Romance, claiming that they're "metal" fans and never liked those previous bands. Once those bands lose popularity, they'll just move on once again. It drives me absolutely insane.

When a guy, whose girlfriend cheated on him, cheats on her, she gets all upset, but she cheated on him first. Vice versa.

Yeah, that annoys me too. But in life, never forget this:

WOMEN ARE ALWAYS RIGHT...APPARENTLY.

Remember that and you'll never have any relationship problems. :lol:

The idea that Xbox 360 and PS3 games can't be fun because they don't have an "innovative" control scheme.

^They can't be. They just can't. Never mind that the so-called innovative controls are just tacked-on to graphically downgraded games and don't work well to begin with, they're still a necessity for reasons no one dare question. Even the HD doesn't make up for it. Now Blu-ray, that's a feature worthy of $500! Even though I can't see the internal laser, just the thought of it being blue really makes me happy.

School is the best!!!!

Seriously though, one day you'll look back on your school years and wish you could go back. Well, I don't know you personally so I don't know how good or bad your school experiences are, but I'm speaking from my own experiences. I finished school a couple of months ago and have since become a full-time labourer, and I've "gotta" tell you, I would take school over the real world any day. Sure, the freedom is great, but school is just so carefree! Enjoy it while it still lasts!

If you live in the western world, an education is the most important thing you can possess. There is a startling correlation between the one's level of education and one's success in life. You're not just learning trigonometry or Shakespeare (though Shakespeare is so relevant that you should be memorizing ever line the Bard ever wrote!!!), you're learning how to think, reason, and adapt to real world problems you might encounter. You probably won't use most of the knowledge you gather, but you will most definitely use the skills that you honed in acquiring that knowledge.

I don't think you realize how much math actually goes into daily life. It applies to almost everything, you just don't always notice.

School is nice but it doesn't always prepare you for the real world. Study hard, because what's yet to come is even worse...

Okay...please explain how knowledge of slope-intercept form, The Odyssey and other mythologies, and Europeans in the 16th century will help later in life.

Slope-intercept form is a reoccuring math equation that you'll need to know throughout later math courses. It also allows you to draw a graph almost instantly. This is helpful for almost all building projects. Examples are ramps, roofs, whatever.

You should know about The Oddyssesy because, if you don't, in my English teacher's words, your ignorant. You should know about every canon author and their works, because they usually defined a genre that you currently enjoy or can teach you important lessons that you can use in "real" life. The themes and usages of words, etc. can be used in reapplied throughout the rest of your life.

History repeats itself, as the saying goes. Frankly I don't see how someone could not be interested in history.

Plus, how do you know your life isn't just some huge dream your mind created? Right now you could be some guy in a coma, just making all this stuff up. Think about that!!

StYoung pretty much said it all in the above post, but I will add this: almost all of the supposedly "useless" information that we all learn in school might not be essential for your life as an adult, but it is certainly nice to have. I pride myself in spending hours reading history text-books and online artices, learning many new things about the world that I never knew before.

I hate it when you're eating a sandwich and a big lump of the filling falls out. You know, a bit of chicken or something. And then you need to look for it but you don't want to pick it up because it's on the floor, you haven't finished your sandwich yet and you don't want dirty-floor-sandwich-mayonaise fingers. But you feel guilty about leaving it there (it might smell) so you decide to pick it up. At first it looks okay so you're secretly thinking "I could still eat this" but then you notice a hair on it and some dust and usually some fluff as well, so you need to find somewhere to dispose of it. Of course there's never a bin nearby so you have to get up to find one and all the time you're thinking "why did I pick this up anyway"?

Eventually it gets too much, and there's nowhere you can put it, like really, seriously nowhere... so you stick it to your top lip with dirty-floor-sandwich-mayonaise with the fluffy side facing out and if anyone notices it you just tell them you've grown a moustache.

That grinds my gears.
