When I type dont' and the spellchecker changes it to don't' and I have to manually delete that extra apostrophe.    Hatred

Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't type dont' about 50% of the time I suppose.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

The people who call my job saying "Somebody called for me, and I'm calling back. I don't know who it was." Then they get angry when I have no idea what they're talking about, and ask them if they know the person's name. I guess I am just expected to be a telepath.

Who the f*** programs Windows, the world's most gigantic operating system, and it never once occurs to them to include a program that checks what sort of computer it's running on, to make sure that it's f***ing maintenance and update programs aren't consuming 100% of your CPU cycles and memory, right when you're trying to use the damned thing?  Every freakin' day.  It's not even a single program - it's a whole damned army worth of these svhost "Host process for Windows Services" things.

Oh, I absolutely agree with this.  This has been a peeve for YEARS.

It's the whole spectrum that gets this treatment....all the way down to simple "shyness."

I've heard shyness called a disease.  What. The. Hell.

Just because someone does not like "socializing" (well, let's be more explicit...EMPTY socializing, yacking for yacking's sake and nothing else), they have a DISEASE?

I have witnessed "shy" children absolutely blossom in their own element, within the boundaries of their own interests and passions.  Why is TALKING about NOTHING the accepted criterion for "healthy?"

A wise man once said:
Small | Large


Virtually anything different about a person gets held up as part and parcel of violent insanity. What bugs me most is that it's not as if news reports come right out and speculate about a connection. They don't even give it that much thought. They just lump it all together like the connection is a given. The guy was an odd duck, plain and simple. I had the same complaint with the coverage of that crossdressing colonel who murdered a couple of people. To read the papers, an underwear fetish and violent crime go hand-in-hand.

Even more annoying is this:
http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/12/18/f-quiet-loner-gunman.html
Somebody wrote a thoughtful and intelligent article in which I see a pretty clear consensus that being quiet and solitary has nothing to do with being violent. One guy out of several interviewed suggested, quite reasonably, that being socially disconnected might place a person at greater risk. That's it. Good, accurate article. But then some idiot slaps a headline on it declaring some great difference of opinion among the experts, and makes no distinction between social isolation and being a quiet, solitary person.

If there is any connection at all, it's because our ignorant society marginalizes and shames people who don't conform to narrow ideals hardly anyone fits. Maybe fewer people would be socially isolated if society welcomed them as they are.

To be honest, the most psycho people I've known were insecure extroverts. People who craved attention and acceptance, but felt rejected or unworthy.

I know I mentioned this earlier in this thread but damn it, uploading pictures from cameras have been a pain in the ass since an automatic update from Windows decided that automatic pop up windows would come up after I plug something into a drive would no longer happen, instead I have to try and find a way using other means.

It took me about an hour to find a backdoor so to speak to upload pictures taken yesterday. Aggravating as hell.  Hatred

What the hell's the deal with flashlights?  I put a brand new set of Duracells in the thing, put it in the drawer, and a month later when I go to use it for the first time, they're three-quarters dead already.

This happens EVERY time!
