I HATE the IMDb trolls. They'll do anything to fuck up a topic.

''Frustration is the byproduct of success.''- said by our instructor Jason in an attempt to motivate us

You`ll say, Don`t fear your dreams, it`s easier than it seems
You`ll say you`d never let me fall from hopes so high
But never is a promise and you can`t afford to lie

- Fiona Apple, Never is a Promise

Jason: Stop talking, put your clothes on, and go home.
Us:(in a perfect chorus) .... THAT''S WHAT HE SAID!
Jason: ...-_- I quit.

This is petty, but I've seen it a lot lately:
Someone makes a "List your 5 favorite X" type of thread, where X is characters in a TV show, or episodes of the show, your five all-time favorite movies etc.. Naturally, one or two people will be unable to decide and will list six or seven. I can understand that's hard to choose, but when I see people listing ten plus in a list of five, it's annoying. On a forum I frequent, someone listed fifteen in a five favorite Disney movies thread. They tried to jusitify it by putting them in different categories (older, newer, liveaction) but still...I mean, just choose.

XD; this is why anytime we have a "list *x number* of your favorite *x item* here", I enforce the amount, because I cannot stand that, either.

I avoid those topics because I seriously can't make up my mind when it comes to that.

My computer at work drives me nuts. It get's really slow, and it takes me a good half hour to get logged in and my Lotus notes opened in the morning. I at least have found a good way to make up for the time it spends "thinking" when it first starts up, and make my coffee.

What annoys me is this site . Honestly half the time I don't know whether to laugh or not. But overall the whole 'fml' thing annoys me. It seems like everyday when I log onto facebook, people on my friends list are like "OMG RESEARCH PAPER FML!!!" Seriously? Yeah I have a research paper to do but is 'fml' at the end of every status update necessary?

I agree with you SailorBallerinaMoon. The first time I saw it I thought it was kind of clever, so I did it. And almost immediately 3456695645674 different ones appear, like the Disney one, the South Park one, and a bunch of others I didn't recognize.

Goodness I hated those! I love facebook but a lot of their users are so whiney and hate change. Oh and I hear facebook is going to change a bit again, just wait and see a crapload of groups protesting.

That's the Internet for ya. Mention the word "change", or anything similar to the word change, and all they act like Chicken Little and/or the Hulk.

Wow I already have friends complaining about how the new FB is like the old one (that they LOVED if I recall correctly), but they're annoyed because it came along right when they were getting used to the new one.
