Groups

We humans are by nature at least somewhat social creatures and crave some sort of interaction. Baring the occasional true hermit, this desire to be social drives us as individuals to form groups. Each individual may belong to many groups, some formed by… more »

Can these fucking assclowns go one single damn day without utilizing the absolutely ridiculous "Light, sweet" description of crude oil? Every fucking day some fucker writes how oil jumped up $0.12 because some guy jerked off too much and got freaked out… more »

No-lympics

Seriously, is *anyone* watching the china-spy-repression-fest on TV? I know I'm not. Yeah it's too bad for the athletes, but then it was also too bad during WWII and other events where discrimination/boycotts were in action. Do I feel really badly about… more »

Fucking Avid Fuckers

Avid technology laid off some of it's oldest and most dedicated workers today. Why? Simply because they had been there the longest. Here's a big fat FUCK YOU AVID and your tool-cake management. Your products suck now anyway. more »

Fucking Splitter

To me one of the perks of the whole gas-cost-crunch has been the happy proliferation of motorcycles. It's a good, nay, great thing indeed. On a motorcycle you learn to be more aware, more defensive and (typically) less stupid, that is if you manage to… more »

What gives these days? It's like every damn supermarket tabloid and glossy needs and I mean *NEEDS* to blather on about some starlet and her pregnancy. What the hell happened to the good old days when it was all about pictures of them being drunk, or… more »

Fancy Feet

I suppose it's worse when you see the driver with one foot out the window (yes, I've seen that) than the passenger, but nevertheless it is something that puts a moue of distaste on my face. Slovenly. Rude. Stupid, and actually more stupid now than in… more »

So this one is riding down the highway, one hand quite literally almost dragging on the ground the other suspending his body almost horizontal (you know with the feet in the 'its annual time at the gyn' position). While that was laughable enough, when… more »

From Potty to Tap

From Fox News: Would you drink your toilet water? If you live in Southern California, you might not have a choice. The Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District gave the green light this month to a $300,000 contract involving a treatment plant… more »

I gotta go pee...

Taking off from work during the week is a pain in the ass. There's just so much to consider, not to mention all the people who just expect that you'll be in (even if you tell them in advance you won't be). I had two appointments today. Honestly they… more »

I think it's natural instinct to look for patterns in everything. From snowflakes to the number of flips of a coin, we're always looking to deny Mother Nature her true randomness. "Shit always happens in Threes". Lie. It's just that we never notice shit… more »

I was on a flight recently when I heard this story being told by multiple passengers sitting near by. It's a doozy and a clear indication that not just one, but multiple people at Delta were asleep on their feet or at their desk: Fuel is costly these… more »

Fire ants. I really don't like 'em. In general I detest anything that can bite, sting or inject me with irritants or poison. While they may not be the top of my list, fire ants are definitely up there. Now there's one worse combination you can add to… more »

Please cover that up

I went to the Farmer's Market, something I frequently do on a Saturday. While getting my purchases organized in my bag, I caught a glimpse of something that made me loss my appetite. It was a "yikes" moment. Now I am not the particularly queasy type,… more »

At Toys R' Us: 2Gig Creative MP3 player (Zen Stone Plus) for all of $25. Yeah $25. I dunno when it's going to stop but can memory get any cheaper? I mean 2Gig for $25? Like that's a what... less than a half a tank of gas? Overall a sweet little device,… more »

Ok, last I checked gas *was* over $4 a gallon right? Way more than I pay for milk. Anyway, I've noticed more than ever that it seems to be some sort of fucking statement that the morons still driving their post-stylish behemoths refuse to shut the… more »

The Times had an article about how prolonged use of flipflops are bad. Most physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons will tell you the same: the lack of arch support and foot protection aren't very healthy in the long run. But no one will doubt that… more »

I really fucking hate how towns feel like they have to pick *their* own special day to celebrate holidays. Take the 4th of July. To me you celebrate the 4th of July on, well, the 4th right? Each town can have their own party at the same time, for their… more »

All I wanted was a Dr.Pepper

I don't drink soda all that often, but when I do I prefer Dr.Pepper. Apparently it's a fucking commodity. Every, and I mean every soda machine that stocks Dr.Pepper is completely sold out by Wed afternoon, while stacks and stacks of diet Seven Up, diet… more »
