Things that piss you off.

    I hope this is the right forum section it did say chats,rants games or whatever. A things that piss you off thread would be considered a rant

    The purpose of this thread is to say what pisses you off.

    What pisses me off is when the container of orange juice says 100% juice and then in little biddy letters underneath is says "from concentrate". How the fuck is it 100% if it from concentrate? What if a bottle of tequila said 100% tequila and then in little biddy letters it said "only 2-5 percent is tequila the rest is water".

    Dumbass reality shows taking over MTV,VH-1 and CMT pisses me off. Most of those reality seem to have washed up celebs or losers from other reality shows.All those channels imply that they play music or music oriented/related shows.For example MTV=music television, CMT= country music television,VH1=video hits one. It seemed for a while MTV didn't play music it was nothing but stupid ass reality shows and I bet most of the complaining why doesn't MTV show a lot of music anymore are probably the same dumb asses watching these reality shows.

    Another thing that pisses me off and themed channel showing unrelated shows. For example Sci-fichannel showing wrestling(yeah I know its fiction but it is still not sci-fi), showing douche bags who run around looking for ghost or kids playing video games, then there is the history channel with shows like ax-men and ice road truckers,UFO,lochness monsters,Da Vinchi code ,JFK conspiracies and big foot.None of that shit has anything to do with history.People riding in trucks or chopping down trees is not history nor is the wacko ufo conspiracy nut jobs history either. This is as worse as MTV,CMT,and VH1 showing non-music related programing. Cartoon network is starting to do the same shit by showing non-animated shows. What if the anime channel showed disney films or showed soap opras?

    Infomercials piss me off the ones that act like you are some unschooled moron who doesn't know how to use a kitchen knife so they show someone mashing down on a sandwich or tomato to sell an electric knife.Another thing that pisses me off about those infomercials is the horrible acting. I seen porn movies that had better acting than that.

    Smokers who toss their cigarette butts on the grounds,smoke in front of their kids and blow smoke in the waiter's face just because they are in a restaurant that allows smoking. Litterbugs who for some reason can't walk seven feet to the garbage can to throw away trash in a parking lot. This why the government does things like enact laws to force people to use common sense and courtesy.

    Codec snobbery also pisses me off. SO what .MKV can have higher quality and smaller file size. Big deal! Oooh look at all that quality on a 15-19 inch screen,wow that is so amazing. Hard drives are getting larger and larger so size is not really an issue. And as far as I know nero doesn't have a .MKV plug in,so that means if I want to transcode a dvd I have to use some other program to convert that MKV just so nero can transcode. If I have a dvd player that can play xvid/divx AVIs I still have to convert the MKV or OGM to avi. I can see having .MKV or .OGM if it has multiple subs and multiple languages,that makes sense, its like a dvd but on your computer.

    So what pisses you off?

    Douchebags, people who drive slow in the fast lane on the freeway and other retarded drivers, loud/rude people at the movies, strangers who don't say thank you when you hold the door open for them... and that's about it.

    Agreed. I don't get enraged by this, but it's something I almost always (literally!) pick up on and get annoyed about when I do my grocery shopping and walk down the aisles and see things like this. The most recent one was from just a few days ago: "All Natural Tyson chicken." Common sense informs us that it can't be natural (i.e. old-fashioned farm-raised) if it's made by an assembly line poultry company like Tyson. But it only takes an ounce of knowledge to take the argument to a whole new level: their douchebaggery for saying, "Oh no! It wasn't our claim that this was all-natural Tyson chicken! It was our claim that this was all-natural Tyson chicken! 'All-natural Tyson,' or ANT, is our copyrighted name for our fake-natural chickens to sucker in the Greenpeace PETA people!"

    I'm 50% of the way with you here. I hate dumbass reality tv (note the solid underline) but I don't have a problem with reality tv itself. In other words, I don't think all reality TV is dumbass. For example, this is reality TV from Japan but it's fucking amazing. Technically speaking, this is also reality TV (even if it's only one clip that aired during a comedy hour). See? Reality TV can be hysterical. You just have to remove dumbass humans.

    In fact, sometimes it's best to just remove humans period and watch Nature and the animals do cute, funny, cool, or even sometimes ferocious things. Like ... this? This is reality TV: it's just reality TV insect-style. I know what some of you are thinking -- "Nature programming isn't reality TV! It's nature! They've been doing nature TV shows for half a century!" -- but to me, it's all the same. Humans in reality? Animals in reality? Trees in reality? Candid Camera is Candid Camera whether it's filming humans without their knowledge or kittens or gorillas.

    Yeah. This is just the Wal-Mart effect, though, as it applies to television. Eventually one or two stations will have hodgepodge programming and 25% of the viewers while the other stations, despite having their own hodgepodge programming, net only 75% of the viewers. (Consider how many stations there are. Yeah.) When that happens, the losers (so to speak) will revert to their original way of thinking -- "the only way for us to succeed is to find our niche and become better at it than anybody else!" So the Real History Channel will begin to challenge the History channel by showing much more actual historical TV programming. Or the Real Discovery channel will shows tons of scientific exploration programs (like Nova or Nature) while the original Discovery channel keeps doing reality TV like Man vs. Nature and Deadliest Catch. Give it 5-10 years. Same thing for MTV, btw. Eventually there will be a station that says "All music videos, all the time." And 24/7 it will just have music or else commercials in order to fund the station and pay for the music license fees. Just like radio stations do.

    You had me with these four words. :) No need to go further. They're all terrible. Commercial advertisements in general are terrible, but I agree that the infomercials are the worst: because they suck up 30, sometimes even 60 minutes of air time just to advertise one product over and over and over. And they do it not with 30 or 60 minutes of new footage, no! They do it by just repeating the same 5-minute ad over and over and over and over and over ... X_x

    I don't like it? I don't ever do it myself? But it's not a big pet peeve of mine. Maybe it would be if I saw more landfills.

    YEEEEEEES! -_-; Thank you!

    Computer tech-geek snobbery in general pisses me off. Let me give you a comparison and you tell me if it's fair, okay? :)

    Sakun: Hey, my computer isn't working properly any more. Can you help me figure out what's wrong with it?
    Tech Geek Jerk: Pfffffffffft! How stupid do you have to be to NOT know what the problem is? Ha ha ha ha ha! Let's laugh at him, everybody!
    Sakun: Look, I'm a busy man, and I don't have time to learn everything. So--
    Tech Geek Jerk: So what? You should have learned computer programming. Sucks to be you!


    Tech Geek Jerk: Hey, my heart isn't working properly any more. Can you help me figure out what's wrong with it?
    Sakun: Pfffffft! How stupid do you have to be to NOT know what the problem is? Ha ha ha ha ha! Let's laugh at him, everybody!
    Tech Geek Jerk: Look, I'm a busy guy, Doc! :( I've got a wife and kids! A mortgage on my home! I work two jobs! I don't have time to go to med school and become a doctor, let alone a cardiac specialist!
    Sakun: So what? You should have become a cardiologist. Sucks to be you!

    Every time people get shitty with me about computers, this is what I think about it. Every time. :\ It's like ... they are so vain, and so stupid, to think that we should all spend time learning computer science and that those of us who don't are stupid and/or lazy and therefore do not deserve to be helped out. WTF. Who died and made you guys king? Fuck you:
    - go be your own doctor
    - go be your own lawyer
    - go be your own cook
    - go be your own carpenter
    - go be your own police officer

    Et cetera. Don't have the smarts to be a doctor? Don't have the balls to be a cop? Don't have the talent to make it as a chef? Then STFU about your goddamn computer intellect and help me fix my computer! Jesus! X_X

    Air-conditioned stores in the subtropics that keep their doors open. And blast pop music onto the sad excuse for a sidewalk. Asshats: fucking the environment up in not just one way, but TWO.

    People who don't understand the two key functions of a fan: to replace the hot air in wherever the heck you are with cooler air from somewhere else, and/or to drive evaporative heat loss on your skin. Instead, these first-principle-flunkies pull the damned plastic dowel thing on top and make the fan swivel left to right to left to right, sloshing the hot, humid air around in a room until it reaches maximum heat and humidity, thereby making the only contribution from the fan the thermal output from the friction of its motor.

    Sorry if those are a bit from left field, but I sweat a lot (more than you, guaranteed--it's genetic) and I live in Asia, and it's been a hella hot day here.

    Recap/flash back episodes piss me. These are shows where they take bits and pieces from other shows in the series or season to have a season or series recap or one of those " Do you remember when....." episode instead of actually making a new episode.Live action tv shows and animated shows are guilty of doing this. I can maybe understand every hundred or two hundred episodes assuming they are going to make another 100-200 episodes afterwards having a recap/flashback episode because not everyone has watched the whole entire series. Sometimes they market these as specials like one of the last episodes of Urusie Yatsura(which it did have 195 episodes), I think Ah My Goddess may have had one as well as a few other series and in the worst case scenario they market it as a new season or series like they did with Shuffle Memories where only the last episode was actually new while all the other episodes were just series recaps of Shuffle. Don't they know shit like this is insulting to fans and pisses them off? Its like coming home from a hard days work and going to the kitchen cabinet to get you a glass,fill it with ice and then open the fridge to get some tea or koolaid and there is only a shotglass worth of stuff in the container.

    Movie producers who can't buy a military manual or do a little research the military so they end up inaccurately portraying the military in films,especially cheap sci-fi not Sy-Fy channel movies..

    1 - stupid laws imposed on regular people when the politicians taking bribes walk scott free out of anything by changing laws and investigations to their liking.
    (See recent years big bribes scandals in weapon sales BAE/SAAB for example)

    2 - Stupid padding files in torrents

    3 - torrents that does not work

    4 - people who call others retards when they can't even spell the word correctly to begin with.

    5 - any TV show/drama, Movie or scene with main actors being completely indecisive.
    (How come J Dorama always have qualified MD's who do nothing to help the patient except scream really loudly "Hang in there"... I never saw that save someones life.)

    People who try to rush fansubbers. Why rush the people who are basically providing you a service out of their own free time for no pay so you can watch it for free or watch it without having to wait months or in some cases years before it hits the US market all translated?That doesn't make sense.

    Kuroi, you sound a little obsessive to me. Maybe you could try to concentrate a little more on affection and a little less on lust. Some masturbation and a long walk might help to clear your mind. There is plenty of manga to be found online or similarly minded men on yahoo for a shared session to aid you in finding some relieve.

    And next time you're alone with a little girl you could try smiling to her and if you manage to not creep her out, enjoy having her smile back at you. And if you know the little girl, you could perhaps sing together, color together or watch her favorite TV show together; do some stuff little girls are known to enjoy.

    I got a few additions to things that piss me off lately...

    People who...

    ...don't let you finish a sentence believing they know how it will end.
    ...consider Ron Paul's campaign supporters "domestic terrorists"
    ...think FOX News is "Quality Media & Pulitzer Winning Journalism"
    ...equate calling someone a socialist should be as bad as using the N word

    and most of all...

    ...that people all over the planet still think the US Bill HR3162 (Patriot Act) only applies to people in the US, when in fact every country on the planet dealing in commodities and FX currency by USD are underwriting the same bill, making everyone on the planet subject to this nasty piece of Human Rights Violation.

    In particular since shop lifting and parking tickets now are considered "domestic low level terrorism" and not a "misdemeanor" anymore. (see HR3162: section 802)
