    Yeah, sure she killed herself...

    What grinds my gears is greed. I'm SICK of government officials and Wall Street assholes running the world into the ground. I'm sick of going to home depot, looking for a GOOD mop (for example) and not being able to find ANYTHING but a cheap Chinese piece of crap made out of plastic with a flimsy pine tree branch for a handle. There's so much cheap shit on the market that you can't find (and pay for) a decent, quality item even if you WANT to.

    Remember back in the day how ham was kind of dry and smokey and you actually met with a little resistance when you chewed it? Now you get nothing but a bag of water with a little pork in it, and if you squint really hard, you can make out 'Ham and water product' hidden in the corner of the label. And of course you pay for it by the pound...

    Speaking of pork products, this has been true since I was a kid. You buy a can of 'pork and beans'. Anyone ever found any actual pork in one? I never have, except for that TINY little lump of disgusting fat that they toss onto the top of the can just before they seal it.

    Anyone noticed how everything gets either smaller or more expensive? Anyone else sick of reading 'some settling of contents may have occurred during shipping' on the side of every unopened half-box of cereal? Anyone been severely burned by a glass pan lid with a metal handle in the center? Anyone remember 'ugly' metal pan lids with a nice high quality heat proof plastic handle?

    It should be illegal to sell a product that can barely manage to complete the function for which it was supposedly designed. No matter how mundane that function is.

    It should be illegal to sell a product that is obviously NOT what the label says it is, even though it technically meets the strict definition (ie: pork and beans).

    in that case, you should find a new girl...


    what pisses me off is not having enough RAM to work with at work.

    Good hockey games that aren't televised where a home team player hits a major milestone. Keith Tkachuk recorded his 1,000th point yesterday in Atlanta, but neither team televised the game.

    The market continues to play in oncoming traffic, the auto industry needs $34 billion in relief money, Bush buys $3M home in North Dallas.

    I've been quite pleased with our prices lately actually! I filled up, from E, for 21 bucks yesterday.

    Seems like just a couple weeks ago it 55-60 a fillup.

    I dont remember the last time I could fill up for 21!

    (aside from the faint memories of when I was a teen and could fill up for under 15)

    My girlfriend getting 200 bucks worth of parking tickets in two weeks time. And then hiding them from me even though the car is under my name and if I got pulled over, I would go to jail.

    I hate people who can't walk correctly. It frustrates me when people are oblivious to the fact that they're in people's ways (like standing in front of a doorway for example). Other examples would be 3-4 people walking side by side on a sidewalk or in a hallway and won't let people walking in the other direction through OR they won't let faster walkers coming from behind pass them.

    Also, I'm a vegetarian and eat mostly vegan. I hate when people ask me how I get my protein, B12, etc. I'm a fairly big kid, and more muscular than most people who ask me these questions. I eat extremely healthy and people observe that, but they still ask stupid questions about vegetarianism and sometimes debate that I am unhealthy. Ugh...

    This post just makes me think of everything that angers me. I get angry with lots of people because it seems like nobody likes to think about anything...ever.
