Are you by chance talking about Tati? I totally understand that being annoying and pretty unfortunate, especially when you are putting yourself on YouTube for lots of people to see.

Don't worry. Girls who grow unibrows are not necessarily unattractive.

You can't really see it...it's just I know it's there and it's irritating. 

My eyebrows are like my predominant feature along with my eyelashes because they're jet black- so they have to look their best.

Have you tried shaving it off with a razor or a knife, it might help.

With a knife is hardcore, I'd end up cutting out half of my skin. With a razor I'd end up shaving off half of an eyebrow...so neither are desirable results.

This seems unfortunate, having a hair that is too small to remove with tweezers yet too close to both eyebrows that using a razor could potentially cut off the eyebrow, I'd personally recommend the knife, if you're careful the worst that will happen is that you will have a tiny mark on your forehead, although you could use hair removal if you have that lying around or read this, or maybe you could even use wax to remove it, I know that people use it on other parts of their body, so it's possible that it could work hear although be very careful when doing this stuff, nothing worse than getting boiling hot wax in your eye or giving yourself lots of big cuts and open wounds on your face, so don't mess around when doing this stuff and don't be stupid and touch boiling hot stuff like I was when I touched boiling hot candy and got 2 blisters, one of them was really bad and the other one was ok, which took 2 weeks to heal and have fun.

Gladly, nothing worse than something that you want off of you, I should know, I pick at my skin whenever there's something hanging.

New Pet Peeve:

The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd don't have a single song in a Guitar Hero or Rock Band game (although The Beatles do have their own Rock Band game, the songs can only be played in that game unlike other games where the songs are transferable and even so, that's it). Why is it that 3 of the best rock bands of all time aren't in any of these games, I can think of plenty of songs that would fit perfectly into a Guitar Hero game, here's a list of 1 per game:

Guitar Hero:

Time - Pink Floyd, The Dark Side Of The Moon, 1973

Guitar Hero II:

While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles, The Beatles, 1968

Guitar Hero Encore Rock The 80's:

Another Brick In The Wall - Pink Floyd, The Wall, 1979

Guitar Hero III Legends Of Rock:

Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin IV, 1971

Guitar Hero Aerosmith:

Rock And Roll - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin IV, 1971

Guitar Hero On Tour:

Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, 1969

Guitar Hero World Tour:

Come Together - The Beatles, Abbey Road , 1969

Guitar Hero On Tour Decades:

Money - Pink Floyd, The Dark Side Of The Moon, 1973

Guitar Hero Metallica:

Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin III, 1970

Guitar Hero Smash Hits:

Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin IV, 1971

Guitar Hero 5:

Hey Jude - The Beatles, 1968

Band Hero:

Let It Be - The Beatles, Let It Be , 1970

Guitar Hero Van Halen:

Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, 1969

Guitar Hero Warriors Of Rock:

The Dark Side Of The Moon - full album, Pink Floyd, 1973

Guitar Hero Live:

Revolution , The Beatles, 1968

Rock Band:

Black Dog - Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin IV, 1971

Rock Band 2:

Come Together - The Beatles, Abbey Road , 1969

Lego Rock Band:

Yellow Submarine - The Beatles, Revolver , 1966

Rock Band 3:

Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles, 1967

Rock Band 4:

Kashmir - Led Zeppelin, Physical Graffiti, 1975

I would understand if they said it was because they couldn't get the rights except for one thing, they could've made covers of these songs, which is legal and the first few Guitar Hero games contains many covers, so there's no excuse.

You could always just shave your eyebrows off and start over.

Here's something I've noticed with several bands that I really hate, I will use Metallica as an example here but this applies to many bands. Also, this is just my opinion and in no way fact.

At first, they start out at their best, producing such classic albums as Kill Em' All, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, ...And Justice For All, and Metallica. Then they give in to what's popular and start to suck and become sellouts, this is especially noticeable with Load, ReLoad, and the first disc of Garage Inc., but is also apparent on S&M and St. Anger. Then they return to their roots and make new music in their original style, albeit not nearly as good, this being the case for Death Magnetic, Beyond Magnetic, and Hardwired To Self Destruct.

Also, another pet peeve is when people refer to Alice In Chains Jar Of Flies as an EP instead of an album, it has 7 tracks, is 30 minutes long, and all songs were specifically recorded for this release and are not previously released tracks or outtakes, so I think it should be labeled as an album.

Well, EPs are so vaguely defined in the first place. Take Broken by Nine Inch Nails, for instance. It has ninety-nine tracks (eight real tracks) and is thirty-two minutes long. Most fans consider it an EP. I do too.

Usually, it just means "less than a full album."

7 tracks and 30 minutes sounds like an EP to me.
