4Chan was so entertaining in that era, I used to go on it around 2013 and it was probably responsible for 70% of my sense of humour. Nowadays, though...

Watching 'Mastermind' due to ASJ and John and something I've never understood. If the scores are tied at the end the person with the least # of passes wins, so why not give a stupid answer to every question you don't know and end with no passes! It bugs me enormously.

Something that always puzzles me as well, mmm. You can see all the clever people just sprout any random word when they don't know the answer. Passing is a dumb move but I guess your instant reaction is to go "PASS", if you don't know a question.

 

Also, Stella was an answer to a question just there. It should be in the Beatley Moments thread but it's not that important.

It is. It was given as I was typing in that thread.

Both unwelcome and pesky feckers...

  

Midges look similar to gnats we have over here in America. They're annoying as hell, but I'll take them over mosquitoes any day. I'm enjoying the "cool" weather while I can because summer heat and bugs will be here before I know it and I will hibernate inside (apart from work and other things).

Ugh so I experienced one of my biggest pet peeves today mcfrickin' twice. 

Okay, so I don't dislike the company of other people, in fact, I particularly enjoy it; however, I am a big contender for personal space and minding one's own business. If its someone who I am very close to, I don't mind a little, consented bubble-bursting, but today people have just been getting on my nerves. First, I was doing my pre-calc work in class and this peer of mine decides to get right up close to my desk and peer right over my shoulder, breathing down my neck as I worked. All they said was "hey what are doing" which wasn't offensive, but the fact that they had their head very close to mine for no reason made me quite annoyed and upset. Secondly, at musical rehearsal today I was on my laptop, working on a paper for AP English after I completed attendance and one of the actors (who I am not particularly fond of but I usually just ignore them and be nice and agreeable if they do happen to approach me and then everything is fine and dandy) decided to sit right next to me elbow to elbow. Okay, I understand if there were like few seats in the auditorium, but the whole theater was empty let alone there being multiple seats on either side of me, allowing for her to at least sit one or two other seats away-- close enough for polite conversation, far enough so as not to encroach. But oh no it doesn't end there, this person then decided to lean closer to me in order to read my essay, and proceeded to comment on the teacher I'm writing it for and the topic. Which, ok, I understand if she was curious and perhaps wanted to incite a sort of friendly exchange between us, but she could've asked instead of just invading my privacy and looking at my screen. I was so uncomfortable that I just nervously chuckled, shut my laptop, and opened my phone and pretended to be perusing news articles until she got up to take part in her scenes. 

Sorry for my ~paragraph~ but personal space is something that I take seriously, especially as a particularly introverted person or doesn't like people perusing my work like it's their business instead of just, I don't know, politely just asking me what I'm doing and that's that

Who the hell wants someone breathing on them, all sweaty with bits of moisture falling on you?

 

To quote Ringo.

If you so much as breathe heavy on them, I'm out on strike.

^deodorant doesn’t affect the breath much but YES, I agREE. There are air fresheners for humans, people, you’re welcome to use them.

It's a tough choice between death and having to stay indoors for 14 days in quarantine. I'd go mad and end up sleeping in the garden.
