I can just imagine George W. Bush saying aluminium the proper, British way. Makes me laugh inside. :p

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.

I hate having to wonder how to spell grey (gray) everytime I type the word. I try to split it evenly so one doesn't get jealous. :p

Grey is the correct spelling.

And how can you consider the English way to spell wrong, Fen? After all, if it wasn't for us, you'd be speaking Cherokee :cool:


Anyway, I hate when people do stuff without telling you. They think it's great to take the initiative, but if it's fucking me about, it's hardly initiative, it's fucking insulting.

The problem doesn't end with the colour, I know about a dozen Mr. Gray/Grey's.
And AGH!!, allow me to illustrate your second point. My mother always moves stuff without telling anyone. Everyone always has to ask, and then gets yelled at for not knowingb "the correct place," even if it has only been "the correct place" for ten mins. That really annoys me.

I only do stuff without telling people to fuck with their heads.

@ Jeeves

Our babysitter/maid used to do that. She moved stuff in my room, I put it back, everytime she cleaned my room she put it back where she thought it belonged, then I put it back when I got home, etc. That was downright annoying. If her place was actually better I may have considered it, but my thoughts were much more logical than hers regarding where things (belonging to me, not anyone else) should be. Unfortunately I couldn't tell her to not clean my room at all.

Anyway, nowadays it happens less, though I usually have to move at least one thing.

Actually, I recon they'd be speaking either French or Spanish... both equally spine-chilling...

Anyways, I really hate crappy TV adverts interrupting your favourite programs...
Like the bloody cillit bang advert...
"Hi! I'm Barry Scott and today I'M SHOUTING EVEN LOUDER!!!"
Shut the f**k up...
Some people in these adverts really need a good poke in the eye.

Two words about adverts...the one to do with the tax return with that godawful old woman:

"Go on, go on, go on..(ad infinitum)"


And four more words, incase that didn't get the point across.

Howard from the Halifax.

He's the greatest justification for racism there's ever been. Thank God not all black people are like that dickface.

Not true. Gray is also perfectly acceptable.

And how can you consider the English way to spell wrong, Fen? After all, if it wasn't for us, you'd be speaking Cherokee :shiftee:

Totally not true. I'm of Canadian descent so I'd be speaking French instead. :dry:

I hate when teachers look over your shoulder as you work. I find it intensely distracting and ARRGH.

Agreed. Or when they give you an insane amount work (compared to how many hours of work the course is supposed to be, as well as the available time you actually have), which in facts partly exist of questions wrongly formulated (statistical physical chemistry..). Rereading your own questions at least once after you wrote them would've helped.. I'm very very glad though, that I got a 10/10 for the course and that all my weekends and hours spend on it, were worth it in the end.

I hate getting up at 4am to collect people from the airport.

Then having to go to TAFE to listen to some old trout cackle on about cubic without having had so much as a cup of tea in the last 6 hours.

I hate when the computer crashes in the middle of something really important.

I hate my ISP. Please, everyone, boycott Tiscali. Do not give them the benefit of your custom. Spread this word around the world.

Why don't you just quit? I'm sure that you could find another ISP. Unless you entered an agreement with a huge termination fee...

Quite difficult when in contract, moron. Rest assured they shall never get another penny from me after the contract has expired. NTL ftw.

There's no other type of ISP in this country, Hrod...they ALL have gay contract fees.
