Thread to complain bout stuff

406 posts in this topic

I hate it when Word Online           does               weird            stuff              like                 this.

And when it was doing that, it was for a paper that was some crazy portion of my final history grade! Good times. Oh, and you know what else? Computer bugs. Specifically, the time there was a wasp in the computer room at school. And the music room, and a break room, and a bunch of other places like right under where the cross country runners stretched. I was only part of the 25% casualty rate among the runners because some people decided it would be a good idea to trample the nest and kick the bugs. For the rest of the year anyone that went within a meter of a wasp was off the team for a week. But that didn't help me when I was attacked by the Flying Tiny Mysterious Stinging [censored] Crazy [censored] [censored] Bugs That Live Under Rocks in Northern Ohio. If there's an insect expert reading this, do you have any idea what those things were? They can sting multiple times, I found them in a rocky area with lots of water, they swarmed, they didn't chase, they were fairly small, and they were extremely aggressive. Some other members of my hiking party were stung up to four times, but I got stung first.

Spoiler

And even though it's off topic, it's a hilarious (at least I think it's hilarious) story. My cousin was slightly afraid of bugs, and we were teasing him about being scared by a daddy long legs. Then we walked through the area where the bugs were, and I got stung* and I started yelling to run away before I ran myself. My everybody else thought I was just playing a joke on my cousin, and so he wasn't worried until he was stung as well. We were far down the trail at this point, and then my uncle was stung, and one of the first people to realize what's going on was my grandmother. She walked through the area next, she was stung three or four times and she didn't even flinch!:o Everyone else went around the bugs, but my cousin, my uncle, and I were standing at a bend in the trail hopping on one foot (because of course they got our legs) and generally looking like complete fools. From there, it was just a short adrenaline-fueled sprint to the car followed by seven days of antibiotics and complaining. And for only two of those days my hand was too inflamed to do anything! After a while, most of the complaining was how nobody filmed us- I would have loved to have seen the look on our faces! And I now understand why my cousin doesn't like insects.

*Read: My heart rate tripled as I felt a red-hot needle of death drive into my left pinky finger, followed by ridiculous flailing, followed by another death needle on my leg, followed by screaming and running and more flailing.

I once found the flat earth forums, where on guy was trying to argue that the Foucalt pendulum was proof that the earth was flat.

Sounds like a lot less work to believe the scientists and let them do the thinking for us.

And, one last thing, shouldn't the ferry be safer than fording the river? Guess not.

Something I'm growing to really hate: Celebrity cooking shows!!!  :mad:

OK, long story short, I don't watch much TV... especially the stuff on the main networks... barf!!!   :P

When I do watch anything at all, I almost exclusively watch channels like History Channel, or Food Network. I'm a great cook, have worked the line in a couple different restaurants, even ran my own kitchen for about a year... so yeah, I'm a huge Food Network Junkie.

But lately I'm seeing less and less shows with real chefs... and more and more of these stupid celebrity cooking shows instead! OMG... I stopped watching regular TV to get away from these Hollywood knuckleheads, and now all of the ones not currently in some dumb series want their own cooking show!!!   Grrrrrrr :mad:

sadly I don't think having over 1000 rep on an online forum about nerd things will get me any respect in school... :(

I feel the same way. As for the complaint, my dumb handwriting!

I really don't get Global Warming deniers logic.

The reason for the lack of logic, is there are two separate groups being clumped into one (which I'm sure they would complain about in this thread :D). There are deniers (who are usually just ignorant), and there are anthropomorphically driven global warming deniers, who do not deny the existence of global warming... They see the evidence pointing to geological activity (such as volcanism) and solar cycles dwarfing anything humanity is remotely capable of. They absolutely DO believe in global warming, but see it as a part of the natural cycles of the Earth and solar system. Cycles of heating and cooling will come and go naturally.

But yeah, the ignorant ones are just flat out dumb. The others are simply interpreting the data differently than you do. Remember that even in science, there can be multiple theories, and multiple ways to interpret datasets.

As for my thing to complain about today... I think I am developing ulnar nerve entrapment in my left wrist, and my left mouse button is going intermittent... Sometimes i have to MASH the thing to get it to click, sometimes, it double clicks, sometimes I'm dragging it and the thing just randomly releases... And I HATE regular sized mice... I LIKED Apple's "hockey puck" mouse... I got a Microsoft Optical Notebook Mouse, and I LOVE the shape and the small form factor... I move it with my fingers and wrist instead of the wrist and arm... But it's unreliable as PTTHT! It's the SECOND one I've bought! Ugh...

I've had a tray decide to close by itself as I was putting the disc in it, and it ruined what was one of my favorite albums back then :( 

I hate that I never feel whether its right to "like" a post like this... I agree that it sucks... I don't Like that your disc got trashed! ;.;

"Likes" just feel weird sometimes...
When some tragic, horrifying puppy kicking thing is shown on youtube by people trying to help...
Do... Do you thumbs up to show sympathy, or thumbs down to hate the thing that was done!?!?... GAH! :confused:

I mean, it's obvious that you "like", but it just feels SO WEIRD to "Like" when a bad thing happens.

And my mouse is still dumb...
