Things that piss you off

Postby Visplane Overflow » Fri 25 Apr 2008 11:57 am

I thought it was high time somebody started a thread that can be full of unfruitful bitching and contentious whining.

Well, here's my list, pending revision:

Racist minorities
Yes, I refer to the minority groups that seem to do nothing but hold double-standards and racism towards well-to-do white people. I honestly don't believe it's "the white man's" fault that black/yellow/blue/green/purple people don't reach their potential. The western world has some form of equality, and it's probably better than the opressed, war-torn _____-ia where they immigrated from.

The Global Warming Panic
Screw you, Al Gore. This one really gets on my nerves. Largely because the hippies that devote themselves to this cause are of the 'holier-than-thou' variety, as if by going completely batshit insane over some unproven and highly skeptical, allegedly-scientific claim qualifies them as more of a person than people who drive gas-powered vehicles. These people are nothing more than bored and sad individuals who can't validate their existence in any other way than by trying to fight for a futile cause and create a massive uproar in the mindless millions.

Gamers
Really, the scum of society =p
I mean of course people who devote their lives to video games, living and breathing in de_dust or some damn MMORPG. 99% of these failures can't spell past "lolz pwnd jooo", who can't even realize that the people who actually type like that are trying to create irony. These jokers are completely devoid of mental capacity, and there's truly no hope for them. Fuck 'em. These people are the worst.

People who bitch too much
'Nuff said.

There's probably a whole lot more that deserves to be on this list, but it's 5 AM and I'm too tired to do this now.

Bastards that don't give you your penny change back

You know the sort, in any fast food outlet or whatever, and you order something that costs ?X.99. You hand over enough to cover it, and expect your penny change. But no. The fucker behind the till leaves it in the penny-pool, closes the register and asks 'Next?'. I immediately answer them with:


"Yes, I know that it's only a fucking penny. But it's my fucking penny, and I want it back!"
"Yar!" said the cow, who had been watching from afar...

Misguided health food advocates

This is a biggie. You know, people that sing the praises of 'organic' food (how can anything be 100% unorganic? Just means that it has once-living ingredients.), people that freak out when you eat a burger, or if you have more than one square meal in a day. These pissants won't be done their work until everyone's an anorexic.

This reminds me of an anecdote involving vegetarianism - I fed a friend of mine an allegedly meat-free quesadilla (Mexican for yummy-yum.), of course, as a practical joke, I had cut very fine slivers of chicken and placed them liberally throughout the wrap - my friend, being a vegan (Latin for 'FoodNazi') took a few bites, before scrutinizing her meal and screaming when she realized that she -GASP- ate chicken! Anyways, said person is not my friend anymore :P She took it kinda harsh, keeps calling me a murderer.

Anyhow, the moral of the story is that vegans are not to be trusted. Someone should start a coalition in the vein of PETA, except it would be PETV - People for the Ethical Treatment of Vegetables, which is strange, since ethics are subjective (stupid meat haters :P). Anyway, the goal of the organization would be to limit plant consumption and encourage meat consumption to piss off or starve PETA and its disciples.

Okay, I'm done.

Useless Customer Support lines

This annoys the hell out of me. When something goes wrong, I want them to ask me what the problem is, suggest something reasonable, then if it all fails send someone round to fix it; not insist that my monitor display problem can be fixed by reinstalling Windows at every available opportunity.

Yes, I'm talking to you, PC World. Do your fucking homework, and realise 'System Restore' isn't the answer to every single one of life's problems.

Well, admittedly, reinstalling Windows is generally a good fix-all, but it's worthy to note that most Tech Support squads don't know anything about computers to begin with.

Those clipboard-wielding people that incessantly harass you for money

I don't have a problem with these people asking me to 'spare a moment?'. It's when they don't let up I get agitated;

"Sorry, I'm busy."
"I can't, I'm in a rush!"
"Look! I don't have time right now!"
"FUCK OFF!! YOU COULD HAVE STOPPED FIVE OTHER PEOPLE IN THIS TIME!"

Answers are usually in that order. It's a nightmare, they just can't seem to take 'no' for an answer, and are perfectly willing to chase you 100m down the street. Yet they all seem to wonder why nobody has time for them?

After the initial 100m chase, another one of the bastards is waiting for you a mere 20m later, and exactly the same thing will happen. Then to really piss me off, they'll accuse me of being selfish. Hang on, I could well be in a hurry for something important, and you fuckers are slowing me down and making my day harder! Who's being selfish now?!

Bastards.

(Yes, it's been one of those days :P)

You have a really skewed and bizarre understanding of what constitutes information then. He had obtained lots of information with which to attack Corbin, ergo, it was an informed attack.

Well I just read the wikipedia page about the earth.

Now i'll make the comment that the earth is flat and shit.
Is that an informed attack?

EDIT: Okay, so I semi-retract my previous statement. I was under the impression that Rosetta and Ifran were the same person.

No worries, I was trying to make reference to the goon who had to supply evidence, roteseele if I recall. At any rate, trolls will be trolls.

Trolls suck! Anyways I'm ready to upload the next 3 screenshots, hopefully it'll blow more minds, and it's okay if people rip on the weapon placement. I don't care about that, it's my preference anyway.

You guys will like them. I'm thinking about doing a trailer but if I do it won't have much in-game footage, I still want to be really quiet about it until I can put it all together coherently.

Hmm.. I played two. One that started with a npc running about and unescapable water toward the right of the opening sector, and I played one that was real dark and had the S.T.A.R.S building and little keypads to open the doors.
