Things that really bother you

Young people (it's funny that I'm saying this because I'm only 19 but oh well) who think that their idols are FREAKKING GODS AND GODESSES and take whatever they say as if they're words from the Bible! It's all good if these idols actually do sensible stuff and do good things and set good examples but sadly most of the time this isn't the case
I think it takes certain type of personality to be this kind of loyal fans. People like me? I am too emotionally cold (or analytical, to say it nicely) to admire anyone like that. I can't imagine myself getting excited about stuff like that... People who are emotional tend to do such thing though.

Another one is studpidity. I'm not referring to those who's disadvantaged at birth, I'm referring to those who's perfectly mentally and psychologically healthy but just plain refuse to learn knowledge and logic and reasoning.

What irritates me more? They actually take pride in it and make fun of people who are smart, who work hard at school, who actually try their best to learn from teachers.
Be patient, my friend. Be patient. Keep working hard. Ten years from now, you will OWN those stupid people. You will have a nice career, a luxury mansion, a fancy car, and a beautiful wife (well, unless you decide to go to graduate school. then you will have none of these things ;):D). Those stupid people who used to make fun of you and bully you? they will pump gas and wash cars for you.

I'm kicking myself. I used to not be able to comprehend why a few people top of my class decides to go straight to work and have no interest getting a PhD. Now looking back maybe they are the smart ones? :p

Not that it hasn't helped but I think it takes a certain type of people to really make the most out of it?

Yep! they are the smart ones! :p:p:p If you consider how long the education and training are for getting a PhD vs. how much the pay is, it simply does not make any sense why anyone would want to get a PhD... Then again, it's not the money that you want when you decide to get a PhD... It's the science and the excitement of making discovery that makes one want to dedicate himself/herself to science. That excitement you get when you realize that you've found something new or solved a long-standing problem is indescribable.

Do you know what getting me upset? Getting old. I'm only 52 but I'm starting to feel it. And what's more I'm starting to show it. The other day I was shaving my face and in the mirror I noticed even more growing out of my ear than normal. And did other people notice it but they were just too polite to say anything about the big black tentacles coming out of my ear? Something else that has come with age for me is the complete and total vocalization of my thoughts. I have conversations with myself and I never used to do that. But the worst indignity of all that has come with age is the fact that college girls no longer find me attractive. It's not like I would do anything anyway, but it's kind of nice to be noticed. I used to be able to flirt with young ladies and get a response. That doesn't happen anymore, unless she is 45 years plus. I’m like George Clooney, I don’t talk to women my age or older......

Thanks for mentioning age issues Mirage, now I'm depressed again just going into the weekend ... :)

Anyway, bothering me? Being in a construction zone on a motorway where there's still two lanes per direction, however the left one is a bit narrower. There's a truck in front on the right side and I'm going faster. There's a car in front of me also wanting to pass the truck, but then is afraid the left lane is not wide enough to pass safely. However, that car driver is too proud to move in behind the truck while seeing the construction zone extends for at least a mile, nonetheless staying on the left lane, making completely and utterly miserable the life of every other person behind him (of which there are a lot), trying to get home. All of which produces enought blood pressure in my system to power a hydraulic jack.

Another thing that really annoys me: a common speed limit

Sorry about your week end Scrath. As John Lennon said "A little older...and a little bit slower....."

Here's some more stuff:

1) People who make sudden right turns from the far left lane of the highway.
2) Parents who don’t take care of their children properly (and I don’t mean via duct tape and a cage).
3) Limp wristed handshakes
4) People who pee on toilet seats in the restrooms at work
5) People who are violent
6) Animal abusers
7) Rich people who are cheap
8) Idiots on the elevator who don’t wait for you to exit before nearly plowing into you in an effort to get on.
9) The next-door witch whose dog makes a number two in my yard as if no one will notice
10) Overpaying for nice looking fruit that tastes like straw
11) People who aren’t true to themselves
12) People that use colloquial words like Georgie

Progressives have ruined Argentina, but I see that this infirmity is prevalent through the world

Very interesting report a must read...

What drives Russian progressives to self-hatred is that they see their country and people through western eyes.

Progressives are a special group of idiots that are destroying countries. Liberalism/progressivism, they extend to many nations and are happily destroying cultures, revisionist history to such an extent that it has even less truth then the enemies propaganda over a defeated enemy. A folk that has no culture and no past has no future. Liberals are indoctrinated and directed idiots to destroy exactly this basis of any civilization. If you have no past you have no direction meaning no future, so they first destroy your Past to change your future (direction) and someone who has no ideals, goals or future will be easier to control and direct to a specific harmful future where only the leader can benefit. Western extreme Liberalism is cancerous to every society.
