Oh woops, by "here" I meant generally on this forum.  The post I'm thinking of is in that "Incredible" impossible to derail thread.

The word yonder is a pet peeve of my mine and particularly when it is used with a southern accent. My mother-in-law uses it all the time. I grew up on the coast and until I met my husband, the only person I knew who said yonder was this cashier at a small town Wal-Mart. My mother in law grew up in the delta of Mississippi in the 50s/60s, so she still use those old terms and has the accent like a southern belle. Its just one of those words that grinds my gears every time I hear it.

Yonder- At some distance in the direction indicated; over there.

Example: "Where is the store?"

"Over down yonder."

To me, the does not tell where the store is at because over down yonder can be anywhere down the road! ahdn_paul_02

Pathetic scare stories that say nothing be it health, environmental, community, crime etc and only lead to people being concerned when they shouldnt be. The rubbish thats said by so called experts yet gets no-one anywhere.

Surprised we havent had eating strawberry jam with a fork will kill you over a period of 145 years, white chocolate will make you explode, your GP not knowing youre nickname at school denotes lack of care and death.

Let us get on with life.

Pointless scientific research and experiments like how to make the perfect cup of tea or piece of toast. Neither is going to make the world better to stop wasting cash and do something better with the time and money.

Idiot people who get caught out in stupid scams and then bitch about how they were screwed over. If a man emails you saying youve won £340,000 in the Mexican Lottery and to get it just send them youre bank details and you do then sorry youre a fool and deserve to lose your money. I saw one where a guy sent money to someone who pertained to be his brother stuck in a foreign country despite his family assuring him his brother was in the UK not abroad. He didnt even do basic checks like trying to speak to his brother or ask questions - just sent the cash. (Note - im not talking about intricate fraud by the way or those who pick on the vunerable.)

Over the past year or so I've had about 6 e-mails from the police, or so they say, demanding that I pay a fine of £2000 for going on illegal websites. They say that I could face prison if I don't send bank info. Right-o, I'll do that right away then. How stupid do you have to be to believe that? Some people must have a complete lack of common sense.

Exactly. Some people really don't think at all.

What I hate is that some people keep on sending me invites for Candycrush or Farmville 2 or whatever on facebook. You see I haven't accepted the invites before, I don't do it now either. What makes you think I will accept them?

And yes, I know I can turn that function off, but I don't know how.

I got rid of facebook as i was getting endless notifications from people i'd never heard of and had no intention or desire to ever know asking if i'd be their friends! Why would i ever want to do that just so someone can believe they are popular thru having 298 likes? I hate the idea that we all must be connected and informing the world everytime we go to the bathroom or that i am having dinner with Steve at 8pm so can only meet Tina after 10pm. I really do not care. Same goes for twitter. As far as i am concerned you can take all your social networking sites and delete them off the face of the earth and life would go on better.

And whilst im on it i dont care what the latest celebrity thinks about anything. Knowing Brad Pitts opinion or Kate Moss's is not going to bring comfort during a human tragedy. Lets get away from this pathetic need to know what the latest fame hungry a, b c... list celeb thinks, or anyone else, and report the news updates accurately. Stop giving opinions.

Oh I like facebook and Twitter. I use Facebook for contact with people and to organize stuff. It's okay for me to just comment on people's statuses, when they're people I like but are not really best friends with in real life or whatever. That way I can sort of keep in touch with people without becoming too close. It's also great for making groups and organising stuff. Twitter I often use just to post my thoughts on stuff or to ask people for any ideas on something I'm thinking about or struggling with. It's just a fast and free way of communicating and finding out about things. I barely follow any celebrities, except for some cool musicians like Paul and Ringo for example, just to keep updated with their stuff. And my favourite radio station. For the rest I pretty much only follow my friends and they follow me back. I don't need 500 followers. I don't have my profile on private for nothing. I also don't need to follow everyone I know. I just stick to my friends and people I find interesting.

About the people who think they're popular when they have 500 friends, I find that so stupid. Like why would you even add people you don't know? I looked at some people I know and at their friendslist, and this girl who certainly wasn't loved by most people at school had like 700 friends and acted as if it made her so cool. Yeah you're right, adding everyone you know and their siblings and their siblings' best friends make you look so cool, even though you don't know more than half of them. I nearly have 380 friends or so, but I know everyone in my list personally or I have at least met them a few times, like some people of a forum I used to go on.

What also annoys me, and this is kind of related to the stuff I just typed, is when people I don't know add me. Yes I can see they've gone to the same school as me, but I've never heard their name or seen their face. I always ask them where I know them from, because my memory fails me a lot, and then they reply with ''you used to go to the same school as I do, right?'' And then I'm just like ''Yeah..so? Do I know you?'' ''Eh..not really I guess'' And then I usually say something like ''So you don't know me and have never even spoken a word to me, but you're adding me just because I went to the same school? Don't think so.'' Or it's people who used to be in the same class as my siblings and then they tell me that. That's so stupid, because I don't know them. It's great you're in the same class as them, but I don't know you personally and why would you even add someone's older sister, even though you don't actually hang out with that someone and don't know their sister. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

Like really? Like I already said, why would you even add people you don't know?

A lot of people I know do that whole 'I'm going to add you because we're both pathetic and we feel the need to have 500+ strangers on fb' thing. Don't understand it at all. The only reason I have a facebook account is to keep in touch with friends and family that don't live in the same country as me, or that I don't see very often. I don't care if I have less than 200 people on there (I think I do). Most people, including me, only have a handful of true friends, and I'm not interested - nor do I see the point - in making out anything that's not true.

My main reasons for being on Facebook are:

. To keep in contact with people I met abroad/who live far away from me

. To stalk people (nobody in particular.... *hurries to close thenewno2's Facebook page brian-epstein*

. To get work/stalking directors/find auditions (because my agent is a dick a-hard-days-night-paul-7)

. To talk to my friends without having to call them ahdn_george_08

A thing I hate at the moment are "fans" of a band when they only know the frontman. I see this a lot with Dhani Harrison's band thenewno2. Thenewno2 consists of: Dhani, Jeremy, Paul, Jon, Frank and Arron. But a lot of people seem to forget about all the lads who are not Dhani which annoys me as they play just as big a part as Dhani does (even more a lot of the time *highfive to Jeremy and Jon*. If you go on thenewno2 any picture of Dhani will have 800+ likes while a picture of the other boys has 100-200 likes, which slightly annoys me. A picture of Paul (who works on effects and is a massive part of the band, he also worked on the 2009 remasters and John's solo albums), anyway a picture of him came up on my newsfeed on FB and somebody commented "Who is he?" :O Excuse me, you call your self a "two" yet you don't know who one of the "Big 3" are???? (The others being Dhani and Jon). It annoys me.....

Talking about thenewno2 another thing that annoys me is on EVERY SINGLE PHOTO of Dhani on FB, at least 10 people comment "he looks so much like George". Really :O I never noticed... that lad has been told that for a large part of his life and it's general knowledge that Dhani looks like his Da. Dhani doesn't want to be thought of as "son of a Beatle", "George Harrison's son" SO STOP TALKING ABOUT GEORGE! For Christ sake, there's loads of George fanpages where you can gush over George to your heart's content, but this is a band page only this and nothing more.

I know what you mean, I know loads of ''fans'' of bands and yet they can name one member (or none at all). And as for Dhani or any of the Beatles' kids that want to have a career of their own, I've always felt sorry for them. They'll never be as good as their fathers, and they are almost being punished for that (mostly by the press, at least over here).

Yep, must be pretty hard to live up to that. They could've expected it though. I mean, if your dad is a musical legend and you, as a son, decide to follow the musical path as well, you can expect you're bound to be slammed by the press or constantly compared to your father. Of course it's a shame that they don't really get an honest chance, in that way I DO feel sorry for them, but there are so many other careers you can choose.

I don't think most of them feel like they have to complain about their lives though.

I think I remember someone older telling me once that when Stella first decided to go into fashion, everyone thought that her almost immediate success was because of her parent's fame. Years later, though I don't really like her designs myself, I think she's proved to the world that who her dad is has nothing to do with it. Good on her, I say. As for the rest of them though, I think they're still trying to prove that they can stand on their own two feet and acheive whatever they want to acheive on their own, unfortunately.
