A few off the top of my head...

1. when teachers try to make you listen to music with only one earphone

Especially early Beatles stuff - ether a karaoke version or isolated vocals!

5. the existence of all the Narrow-minded, hypocritical, homophobic, sexist, racist, chauvinist, idiotic arseholes in the world blue-meanie

When companies make advertisements that are really lame attempts to appeal to people who are roughly my age. You're the same old, stuffy Madison Avenue suits you've always been. You're not fooling anyone when you pretend to be hip.

I had that Barbie VW Beetle that she puts in her shopping trolley. I still have it actually, it's in the attic but my brother accidentally stood on the windshield and broke it.

Liars. I have no time for them.  

BS! We all lie. Each and every one of us, including you, mmm! It is the only way to survive. We lie because, oftentimes, we may offend by being too honest, and while it's okay to offend the faceless masses, we try to avoid offending those we love.

There are questions you rarely are able to answer honestly if you don't want to offend someone you care about.

Does my bum look big in this? (No good answer!)

Do you like the red or blue dress better? (Really no good answer!)

Do you notice something different? (You can always try commenting on a nice new hairdo here. It's right a lot of the time. Just check they haven't had any tattoos since you last saw them!)

How are you? (God ! If we didn't lie to that question most of the time... Feck!)

We lie all the time. Big lies are a problem, but little white lies are the grease that keeps the wheels of life running.  

Apologies for not going into details. I was bullshitted at work and when the individual was questioned by someone else that individual blamed it on me. Yes we all lie but we are all hypocrites and idiots as well.

I will add however that I usually respond with sarcasm, blind drunk honesty or with questions.

Does my bum look big in this? (No good answer!)

Never been asked.

Do you like the red or blue dress better? (Really no good answer!)

I really don't care is my answer. I get asked questions like these at work. I got asked about cushions recently and replied with "it's a cushion, who cares". In a team meeting it was being discussed who would go and look at wallpaper for the place I work at, I chipped in with "thank goodness I'm on holiday as there is no way I'm going to look at wallpaper.". 

How are you? (God! If we didn't lie to that question most of the time... Feck!)

I always go with the sarcastic answer of "Wonderful". If pushed I am honest.

Do you notice something different? (You can always try commenting on a nice new hairdo here. It's right a lot of the time. Just check they haven't had any tattoos since you last saw them!)

Most often I never do as I'm rarely aware of my surroundings. If I haven't said it before I haven't. Why lie over that?

Once I was asked if I thought a fellow team member was good at her job, I refused to answer as it was a loaded question. Don't ask me questions where you are only looking for the answer you want.

This may all sound like nonsense, rude or whatever but I do what I can not to lie to people, even over the smallest things. If you don't believe me that's up to you.

I'm not thrilled with my threads titles being changed without consulting me. The title changes are all right though and logical so I won't mess with them.

That's right. I'm not sure who changed that one.

I'm curious, SS?. I remember you mentioning some threads you don't like. Do you still like the Hangman game you created? I think it is fun.

These people who call the Beatles' music 'light music', 'easy music' or, even worse, a 'stopover' before listening to more sophisticated music like jazz. I don't even mind them criticising my music taste but denying the Beatles could do complex, mind-blowing masterpieces and songs that were simply genius? And then always this the-Beatles-are-so-overrated-look on their face... 

Ok, I better stop with my rant now because I'm probably only offended by my friend having called Revolver (my absolute favourite album of all time) not very impressivea-hard-days-night-paul-10

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

What really pisses me off is when people refer to The Beatles as a pop band instead of a rock band. Sure you could call them pop rock and there are a few songs such as Good Day Sunshine and The Long And Winding Road that are more of a pop song than a rock song, but calling The Beatles a pop band would be like calling Led Zeppelin a classic rock band, it's just wrong.

Classic rock is defined as;

Classic rock is a radio format which developed from the album-oriented rock (AOR) format in the early 1980s. In the United States, the classic rock format features music ranging generally from the late 1960s to the late 1980s, primarily focusing on commercially successful hard rock popularized in the 1970s.

Zeppelin is a classic rock band. (Along with the Beatles, Black Sabbath, Queen, etc...)

Walking and transit directions don't work on Google offline maps. Only the driving directions feature works. Bummer. I had big plans for using it for walking directions on this upcoming trip.

Laziness is media. For example, there's this little kids show called Caillou where they only paint half of the background and leave the rest of it white, so sometimes you can see the characters in the void.

Caillou%2B5.pngImage Enlarger

How about Power Rangers, great show but why are they so stupid that they don't use the Megazord until the enemy is that size, I know you have to teach 4 year olds about fairness but you'd suck in the battle field if you don't have an advantage, I mean do you think that if I had a gun on me and someone had a knife against my throat and I pulled the trigger that I would be the one getting in trouble, no of course not.

Then there's Batman, who refuses to kill The Joker yet has killed other people without a problem. If you're not against killing people then why the hell don't you kill the one person who deserves it the most, the one that has killed so many people with no remorse and no intentions of stopping, you'd have to be insane yourself to think The Joker has the right to live but this is out of laziness, instead of making him invincible or something like that the artists just make Batman spare his life and have him taken to a mental institution. There's even a comic where Batman prevents The Joker from being executed, there's a good reason why people claim that Batman has mental problems himself.

Don't get me started with modern music, it's so simple to make and instrumental or even vocal talent is non-existant, here's how 3 types of modern music are made:

Rap:

1. Make a beat using a drum machine or if you're extra lazy, find an instrumental track off the internet bypassing step 2

2. Optional but you can add a very basic instrumental part, such as bass or piano, using a keyboard and loop it

3. Rap about random stuff, maybe say something like: (WARNING: contains inappropriate language)

"Yo nigga I don't give a fuck nigga I don't sell a truck nigga I don't eat 3 ducks nigga tuna fish is ruck hitta like a smiling ho ass nigga damn dat ass nigga I outta fuck dat ass nigga like SpongeBob and a rock nigga swag homie j dawg fat mc straight nigga fuck like you don't give a fuck bout dat ass nigga like yo homie fuck nigga"

4. Use some Auto tune, rappers hate their natural voices so they often want to sound like a robot

EDM:

1. Find an instrumental track on the internet

2. Mess around with it

Modern Pop:

1. Get out your drum machine and make a simple beat

2. Make a simple instrumental part using a keyboard

3. Sing

4. Use Auto tune if you'd like
