    What annoys you the most?

    For me its when you go to all the trouble to make yourself some toast. (mmmm toast) And then your walking back to your computer desk, and it falls off the plate, and for some reason it always, always falls butterd side down and gets tiny peices of carpet hair stuck to it. dammmm that is soo annoying!
    arrh, i got nothing good to say.

    I hate it when I get to the part in the tutorial where I don't
    understand what he's/she's talking about and can't get
    the program to do what the tutor is telling you it's doing.
    That's when my wife and kids start moving to other remote
    areas of our home.

    I hate it when i install a program just to see that it doesn't work, then i go through all the troubleshooting things that could possibly apply, install new drivers, uninstall half the software on my computer just to see that when i double click on the program, it doesn't even give me an error, it just does nothing.

    I also hate how my CD-ROM drive doesn't read certain CDs properly whereas my CDR drive reads them all.

    Life sucks, too bad we have to live with it.

    I hate people who think that they are soo "SUPERIOR" than others (and tries to put this retarded opinion up in the news. Unfortunately, no news publishers are willing to put up such retarded stuff and the person can only settle for a message board. * HINT HINT *)

    Salem, was that just a coincidence? neat...

    >I also hate how my CD-ROM drive doesn't read certain CDs properly whereas my CDR drive reads them all.

    right on... 24/32x max fo' eva baby!

    oh... and the current gripe, i hate how i'm losing my source/mind...

    plus, i hate it when you have two boxes parallel to one power source... having to switch hds for transfer... but that's not the point... i hate having two parallel kbs, one in the correct position and one in lap [like right this instant] and having to re-c/p the other guys quote since i typed with the wrong kb like a dubdar... ahem...

    can you all agree?

    I hate celery and onions. I hate when people ruin perfectly good foods by using either. I can eat pretty much everything else... tongue, raw fish, raw otopus, brain, etc etc.... but I absolutely hate celery and onions.

    OMG... *Michelle* are you having a go at me??? If you are then trust me, I'm the last person to think that im Superior to anyone. I was just trying to start up a funny thread like all the others that we see on this board. If you have a problem with that then dont come to the General Descussions area where this kind of stuff happens.

    If you went having a go at me, then I am extremly sorry, my finals are coming up and i have been studing all day so im not really with it.
    arrh, i got nothing good to say.

    In keeping with the toast landing buttered side down theme...

    An American magazine held a competition, inviting its readers to submit new scientific theories on ANY subject. Here is the winner:

    Perpetual Motion

    When a cat is dropped it always lands on its feet and when toast is dropped it always lands buttered side down. Therefore if a slice of buttered toast is strapped to a cat's back, buttered side up, and the animal is dropped, the two opposing forces will cause it to hover, spinning inches above the ground. If enough toast laden felines were used they could form the basis of a high
    speed monorail system.

    ....and then this mail got the following reply :-

    I've been thinking about this cat/toast business for a while. In the buttered toast case it's the butter that causes it to land buttered side down - it doesn't have to be toast, the theory works equally well with Jacob's crackers. So, to save money you just miss out the toast and butter the cats. Also, should there be an imbalance between the effects of cat and butter, there are other substances that have a stronger affinity for carpet.

    Probability of carpet impact is determined by the following simple
    formula:

    p=s*t(t)/tc

    where 'p' is the probability of carpet impact, 's' is the 'stain' value
    of the toast covering substance [an indicator of the effectiveness of the toast topping in permanently staining the carpet]. Chicken Tikka Masala, for example, has a very high 's' value, while the 's' value of water is zero, 'tc' & 't(t)' indicate the tone of the carpet and topping, the value of 'p' being strongly related to the relationship between the colour of the carpet and topping, as even chicken tikka masala won't cause a permanent and
    obvious stain on if the carpet is the same colour. So it is obvious that the probability of carpet impact is maximised if you use chicken tikka masala and a white carpet - in fact, this combination
    gives a 'p' value of one, which is the same as the probability of a cat landing on its feet. Therefore a cat with chicken tikka masala on its back will be certain to hover in mid-air, whilst there could be problems with buttered toast as the toast may fall off the cat, causing a terrible monorail crash. It is, therefore, in the interests of public safety that the buttered toast on cats idea is scrapped, to be replaced by a monorail powered by cats smeared with chicken tikka masala floating above a rail made from white shag pile carpet.


    Hehe... genious, pure genious...


    On a side note... The15th: Michelle was talking about our resident jester Series X4 1.0...

    I don't hate people who hates me! They can't help that they're feeling all this terrible hate inside, it's just sad actually. Send me a PM and tell Dr. Series X about any possible mental problems, and he will love help you!

    You're just having a hard time accepting that I'm superior! It's very normal, it's hard to admit those things.

    (o^.^o)
    Now tell me, what does it mean? A car? It's so beautiful, this is true art! What do you see in your picture? Tell me.
