Things that annoy the HELL out of you.


Assume Nothing

Like Shepherd Book said, there's a special level of Hell reserved for "child molesters and people who talk at the theater." :lol:

Thanks to you, I'm imagining a circle of hell that's a movie theater that plays nothing but child porn (And Setzer/Friedberg movies, this is hell after all), and it's impossible to see or hear anything because of all of the cell phones and people talking.

How hard it is to find classy/ unobtrusive merchandise relating to shows in general (but especially anime).

 

All I want is a nice watch or keychain that will remind me of my favorite show when I look at it, but also is subtle enough that it can't be seen as such without close inspection/knowledge of the show.

Like a watch holding a subtle outline of a character on its face, or a symbol that's prevalent throughout the show. Not one that has the show's name written across it and a full mugshot of a character on its face.

 

 

Why is this so hard? Does no-one else want to quietly celebrate their favorite shows? How many full body pillows do I need to scroll past to find this?

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

I told her there was a secret method to doing it - and there is - but my once nimble and agile fingers were unable to perform because I was under the influence.

I would laugh, not hate. I'm a male. :(

Since when was Ireland an island...? :wall:

I actually have a hobby of licking public toilet seats.

The fact that I'm heavier and fatter than I've ever been, and yet I physically can't eat as much. It's not like I'm eating really badly since moving out either; I eat just as healthily as I did at home, just not as much or as frequently.

My skin is finally getting soft
I'll scrub until the damn thing comes off

I hate the ads on this website that are "optimized" for iPad users. The only ads I get are full screen video popups that I can't exit out of for 30 seconds. That and they make it impossible to scroll up and down pages. Who's great idea was that?

I'm willing to bet it was an ad executive. ;)

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Maybe if you buy the products they'll go away?

I hate this so much, that I'll use my phones smaller screen to browse instead of my iPad...

Everyone and everything that identifies as 'hipster' should be cast into the abyss.

The pure hatred some people feel towards hipsters is one of the most poignant victories of modern day capitalism.

 

It all began decades and decades ago in post-WW2 America, with youths naively believing that they could publish art without the backing of major publishers in the books industry, or major record labels in the music industry, and so long as they made it cheap enough, it was a sustainable method of producing and distributing art. In this system, art was made for art's sake, and commercialisation, such as the use of art in advertising, was rejected. Nowadays, it's quite normal for 'hipsters' to reference to their friends and others within their peer group, with no sense of irony, the exact name of the 'hipster' store they bought their branded 'hipster' clothing, for exactly what hyperinflated price they bought the clothing at.

 

Capitalism has turned a movement which, when it started, was inherently anti-capitalist in nature, into a generation of walking billboards for major commercial brands.

 

Food, water, oil and now the concept of free expression itself. Even if you reject pure capitalism as the fairest model through which to govern a nation's economy as I do, you cannot help but totally awed by its ability to put a price on absolutely anything.

Unfortunately nowadays, "hipster" is just a meaningless label thrown around by obese men who wear cargo shorts to describe anyone who has an alternative taste in music or wears slim-cut jeans.

 

I thought the obese men wearing cargo shorts were the hipsters???

Not quite. Those are neckbeards. Hipsters wouldn't be caught dead wearing cheap cargo pants.

I'd argue that most of the hatred towards hipsters stems from attitude. If you like music that I think sucks, power to you. But liking music no one has ever heard of doesn't actually make your farts smell like roses, and trying to convince us sheeple otherwise will only earn our scorn.

 

Then we become the blind followers of 'the man' which only gives the hipster more reason to be smug, and us more reason to hate them.

 

 

Society loves to hate on some group of people. The hippies, the emo teenagers, and now the hipsters. And in a few years, we will start to grow board of ripping on hipsters, and we'll rip on whatever other group is loudly proclaiming that they are special at the time, and the cycle will continue. Or at least the teenagers will. Most of my primary education was set during the emo hate years, thus my natural enemy is guys with tight jeans and bangs over their eyes, not people who wear cargo shorts and toques all 12 months of the year.

You know what's worse than hipsters? People who have to actively hate something even when it's not even relevant at the moment. "Better love story than Twilight" or "I wish I wasn't born in the '90s, everyone around me likes Justin Bieber! Lol he looks like a girl, right? RIGHT?" At least hipsters have the decency to not constantly talk about the things they hate.

“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself. It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker. Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural boogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own). You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you. The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings. Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.

pretty much hits the nail on the head

They do, they just dismiss whatever isn't contrarian by labelling it 'mainstream'. Perhaps not as strong as hate, but they certainly look down on those who don't desperately absorb every cultural phenomenon that looks different.

 

On a different note, people who simply claim that 'manga/anime' are things they like annoy me - not because manga/anime can't be good (Spirited Away kicks everything Pixar has ever done into the dirt, for example) but because liking everything that's Japanese and animated, without much discernment, is, like a hipster, merely striving to be different for the sake of difference. And was it not a Japanese priest who wrote that "a craving for novelity in all things is a sign of a person of superficial knowledge"? I think it was.

Pretty sure that was Lincoln, buddy.

I get called a hipster often enough. I like finding hidden gems of cool things that aren't necessarily popular. I don't like pop music, or sports, or a lot of other things considered mainstream. My favorite genre of music is relatively unknown - electroswing - and my favorite things in most pop culture are things just below the surface of the mainstream.

 

Yet I don't look down on others for liking pop music or Harry Potter, or anything else mainstream, no matter my opinion on it. Your interests are your own, and you're allowed to have them. What annoys me is when others don't accept my opinion, our someone else's. Calling me pretentious because I enjoyed the percussion concert and you fell asleep is frustrating to no end. I'm not thinking I'm better than you, just that I enjoy something you didn't.

Harry Potter is considered main stream?

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.
