    You wanna know what grinds my gears I wanted to give my little brother money for snacks but it turns out his elementary school got rid of everything thats sweet or has sugar WTF is that I grew up eating lots of sugar, ice cream, and greasy chips am I obese??? NO (I'm very fit actually) but no instead they decide to replace all that sugary goodness with old fruits and low fat milk what kind of society says you can't have that your too fat.... I think it's the individuals responsibility to chose what they want I'm mean seriously that grinds my gears.

    ^ Yeah, but you had gym class and recess! I agree... insane things going on in the world. And recently the government just classified pizza as a vegetable -- or so I heard...

    My boyfriend says acrosst instead of across! I can't stand that! I also hate when people say liberry instead of library. I also hate when people post blurry pictures on Facebook! Almost all my friends have a semi decent camera on their phone, So why the blurry pics? Learn to compose a photo properly!!!!!!!!!

    Supposably - the correct word is supposedly

    Conversate - the correct word in converse

    Irregardless - the correct word is regardless (otherwise you're saying without without regard, and yes that's two withouts because ir- and -less indicate the same state.)

    Drivers who will not slow down for poor road conditions and/or construction zones.

    Cheaters / those who do not properly respect their relationship by gawking at/flirting with a third party

    Yep. A self-procreating, self-sustaining monster, it's vile tentacles run deep beneath the crumbling bedrock of society, likely to rear up suddenly from the netherworld of lunacy, affecting each and every one of us, or ANY ONE OF US, the world over. Believe in sentient visitors from another world? They're not safe, either.
    Ironic that discrimination does not discriminate.
    Just remember, you asked.:)

    Why is it that everytime someone asks you to help them move, they had a sleeper sofa in some room that it takes MIT engineers to figure out how to get it out of. The damn things are heavy enough, having to get it through the doorway at exactly the correct angle with a precise twist in the middle is a PITA. OK, got that off my chest, I've gotta go check my threads.:D

    Private IT schools who claim to prepare you for official vendor exams. When all they do is charge thousands of dollars for a crammed years worth of material and no practical experience. Employers want vendor certs, not college diaplomas.

    My advice: study on your own, buy the books, 2 computers (3 is better) and challenge the real vendor exams like CompTIA, Cisco and Microsoft when you are ready. You'll have more time to study and you'll save thousands.

    Staples, and "Bedazzling", available at your finer multi-mega-mom-and-pop-mangler retailer (Dast I say the name, like "you-know-who", Harry?).

    People who refuse to type their question into Google or use built-in help. Drives me absolutely bananas!

    Hey, give a girl a ring to "symbolize" a marital arrangement, and if it sparkles, it's a GIFT, not a SYMBOL, maybe even a BRIBE, after all.
    I do believe if she wears a plain, gold band to that meat-market of a gymn, it's far better horn-doggie repellant than a diamond any day. "Oh, honey, I just left my diamond wedding ring at home because I didn't want to damage it during my workout!" Really? ;) And those, er, IMPLANTS she very sweetly demanded that you pay for, saying, "because they're all for you, baby!"? :D
    I say, give her a few gifts of diamonds and gold BEFORE the big day, but to symbolize a standing betrothal, it's a plain, gold band, dude. :cool:
    Unless you're just afraid she thinks you're not worthy...
    ...then do the sparkler. $$$$$$$$$$$ = :eek::mad::( [​IMG]

    ...about dolphins and pelicans, anyways? Tar babies on the "sugar-white beaches"? Picturesque, methinks.

    I think that I'm going to have to disagree with you here, bro. I'm not certain what the specific guidelines are for hiring in Canada, but plenty of organizations here in the States require that silly little piece of paper from an accredited institution. With that said, I am 100% sure that the certs do help put oneself over the edge (in competition for position), but the degree just seems to be the favorite these days.

    ^ Just to add on that, a cert only says what you knew on the day of the certification. Crammed info (at least for me) is merely temporary.

    Just ignore the beast. The last thing you want is a law that sets the maximum size of our allowed vehicles. We are Americans and we like stuff big and huge and large and cool.

    What pisses me off are the parking structures that do not allow for my 1960 Olds Super Eighty Eight. It's arse sticks out too far; it is hard to find a place to park her except at the top where birds crap on her glorious paint job. And yes, some people have commented about it and they ask why I do not buy a small car.

    I say if you want a 7 MPG Hummer with huge tires and lifted to the heavens, go for it. None of anyone's bloody business. We'll run you over and not even notice.

    Built in help is a pain unless you can download the manual for help. Trying to go back and forth in a video stinks. You can't underline anything. There's also less info in a video. Takes too much time for talking and showing so you get less questions answered.

    So I trying to help a user here on AF. I google the problem and find a solution but this forum blacks out anything on the post that is relevant. I know AF doesn't do this (which is why they are always first in Google:)).

    So I just have to register to see the blacked out content. Ahh, OK. I have an old hotmail account that is still active. So I fill out the registration form, but the password needs to be at least 4,342 characters long and typed in using ASCII codes. Once I finally got the type and retype right, I had to watch a commercial for the code to the captchka.

    Whew, finally there. I can help the nice person I am trying to help. Nope. Now I also have to post something in order to simply view the thread. OK, if some spammer made it through that registration process I would offer them a job. So I posted the obvious, I am posting just to see the damn solution (way to add spam to your threads guys).

    Turns out the solutions was a free app I have been using for years. There is a reason this is the best forum in the world.

    PS: I have really used most of my restraint here. So please excuse me if I am not answering your threads. My fuse is a little short at the moment.
