    Warm weather is demonic and I hope the entire wretched west coast and all its insipid heat and sunlight sink into the nearest subduction zone and incinerate in molten magma and the crush of the earth’s seething mantle.

    Pizzas that are too greasy and so they just slop everywhere when you try to hold them.
    Pizzas that are more bread than pizza.
    Coffee cup size class names.
    Inches and feet and the lazy bums that won't make the transition to metric.
    My dental insurance not covering laughing gas.
    FedEx.
    And finally: making real tournaments out of children's toy and card games. Or just making anything fun into a competition.
    ADDENDUM: ANTS!

    When people use "x times smaller" or "x times slower" to mean "1/xth the size" etc. "Smallness" / "slowness" etc. aren't actual scalar properties that can be multiplied, size and speed are and you signify reduction with multiplication by a number lower than 1 :mad: 

    When TV continuity announcers say "the new series of show x returns..." or "part 2 of show x returns after the break...". A "new series" (UK terminology here... for US read "season") can't return, nor can part two of an in-progress show. Show X may return for a new series, and a show may return for part two, but something that's being advertised as "coming up" can't return as it's not yet happened.

    Public Transportation really peeves me. Phoenix has terrible mass transit. When I am on a walk I will see a bus with 2 or 3 people on it and wonder how this is cost effective. I am tired of wasting money when we never fix our roads which are it terrible shape. But we will put billions into light rail, Phoenix had light rail a long time ago and it failed badly. I would be cheaper to buy everyone a car.

    Another is morons voting for more sales taxes to fund these stupid mass transit projects and stadiums. I hate funding the D-backs being a Yankees fan.

    Another thing is I ordered something from NY and had to pay shipping but I will not receive it for 10 days. But I will order things from Japan and it will come in 2-3 days. Did they put my package on a bicycle.

    Another is sales taxes, I will pay the state 5.6% but the rest is such garbage.

    And after that, explode in a brilliant shimmer of confetti and shamrocks.

    Then gives birth to Satan who was hiding under Cali all along.

    So Yesterday while I was using the motorized cart pusher, I tripped a tiny bit in the middle of a push. Didn't fall, didn't hurt. Everything was fine so I continued home. When I finally take my shoes off, I see my middle toe us bloody as heck. So I'm just like "how? It was the far side that was the focus of the tripping. How is it the MIDDLE toe that gets bloody?"... Just weird things like that peeve me up....

    Gatekeepers. It usually goes something like "you can't possibly like this because you aren't this or haven't experienced that" and "you don't know what this truly is because you are not this." They won't let someone else share in something because they don't meet their own criteria.

    I guess they want to feel special or something.

    Which is why Satan resides there. Florida, California and Canada look at that thread and say, "and we thought we had it bad..."

    it did make me think of "Disney taint free" though, and then there's just the... just the conundrum that is family dynamics in this day and age.

    Bold of you to assume Satan’s IP address wouldn’t trace back to Florida.
