got me wondering, is there call for an irrational fear thread?
Whenever I close my eyes whilst in the shower, my brain thinks I should be concerned about someone trying to kill me.
ive thought this as well , seen one to many horror films
Lazarus extension for Google Chrome
I wouldn't touch that- it might store your details then goodness knows where they might end up. Then again, I'm a total browser extensions noob.
Back to annoyances- the fact that upon clicking on Iccz' link to this thread, from the iPhone/iPad app,'it takes me to the browser
The fact that the football season is starting again. I've enjoyed the past few months of not hearing those lower class gits cheering on some overpaid yobs kick a ball around. :sigh:. Now everyone is going to be talking about them, referring to complete strangers as 'we', 'us', etc and it will be on the news.
Fish and chips by the sea, remind me why this is so great again?
Paying twice as much for half the portion size you get anywhere else while pretending that we can tell the difference between fish that's half a day fresher than usual after it's been coated in batter and deep fried in god knows what while we try and simultaneously eat it and stop it blowing away.
While I don't share all your sentiments there, I agree about people saying "we" when referring to sports teams. If you are not in the team, then please do not talk about the triumphs, efforts, struggles etc. of your preferred team in the first person! My father in law does it all the time, even though I am quite sure he hasn't kicked a ball in forty years.
I have also massively gone off football over the last ten years. I used to follow it quite avidly but now I couldn't tell you England's first choice XI, and my life is better for it!
oh, and of anyone was offended by that, it was to quote someone from a previous thread, in defence of tennis. Quote available on request.
People who misspell miscellaneous.
Ah ok, I thought it was your own opinion! Some carefully applied quotation marks would have helped to avoid doubt
Well, it was both a quote and my opinion as I seconded it . Otherwise I wouldn't have said it in the first place if it wasn't my opinion!!!
"Celebs" who resolutely wear darkened glasses / sunglasses when interviewed, even when done in a studio.
The news coverage on people who win big on the lotto or euromillions. The way they dumb down to the public on what they can now afford.
"They can now afford 12 Wayne Rooneys or 40 ferarris or 1200 Man utd season tickets etc.."
'Microfibre' teatowels. They just move the water from one place to another, without ever showing any sign of drying whatever surface it is that you require to be dried...Absolute crap
Yeah it's mega-tedious. And they always make a big thing about whether or not they like champagne.
"When asked if he would be celebrating with a glass of fizz, he said he would probably be having nice cup of tea. IMAGINE THAT!!!! OMG!!!! HE DOESN'T REALLY LIKE CHAMPAGNE, READERS, AND YET HE'S MEGA RICH!!!!!"
If I won I wouldn't go public, but if I did, when they asked me what I would do I would say I would use my new unimaginable fortune to subtly make life a misery to anyone that had caused me grief in the past. People in shops. Bad teachers. Annoying managers and colleagues. Bullys at school. Then I would do a sinister smile straight to camera.
I see the news is straight back into full blown doom and gloom mode now
Why do they always manage to land on your face?
Why can they not fly out the same window they just came through even though its wide open?
Women who pluck their eyebrows to nothing, then paint them back on.
"expect the unexpected" argh!
I heard as part of the olympics commentary "prepare to be surprised" - well now I won't be will I?
My ex used to do that,then she'd draw them back on at a silly angle so she looked suprised all the time...
I hate people who refer to possession as a her.
or a watch forum where they refer to the watches as her.
I eat from a chippy by the sea all the time.It's cheaper than when i lived in London.Bigger portions,and tastes nicer
Maybe i just had crappy chip shops near me in London
I found the 100M final a surprise
Sky showing 4:3 material (Star Trek TNG) on a HD channel.
People who do "poodle dog" sneezes- where they pinch their nose and hold it all in. Annoys me to no end, especially when men do it.
It can't be good for you- the purpose of the sneeze is to get rid of foreign material and bacteria in your nose, holding it in will just make more sneezes.
I like to "let it all out" into my hand or a tissue. Makes more sense. Then again, some people go a bit too far with the "let it all out" technique and shout at 110 decibels. Quite scary when you're in the vicinity.
Switch to the SD channel? At least it would be in full screen there.
People still moaning about the 'bad' weather we've had this summer.
For me it's been too hot.Started of hot,then some had alot of rain.Apart from the odd day it didn't rain here much.Now it's been hot for weeks with no end in sight
