    A bit off topic but.

    That reminds me of a story of a US naval town that once complained about the sailors in town and the base's presence. So one pay day the pay officer decided to pay every sailor with $2 notes. Needless to say the town never complained again

    And then get annoyed like it's my fault because I tell them they should have bought from a dealer who supports what they sell and no I'm not going to waste my time on their piece of crap.

    Geez... at least buy a Dell and get a 3 year warranty with it if you can't do your own support, they may be boring black boxes but at least Dell support the bloody things.

    And leave me the hell alone! (ok I feel better now)
    This annoys me tremendously.

    Just this morning I got woken up by a text message from an old dorm mate who NEVER EVER talks to me unless she wants a computer problem solved (she has gone as far as to snub me when walking past).

    It's amazing in a uni dorm the amount of people who never actively talk to you (beyond hello) until they have a computer problem.

    Some trumped up celebraty/important person from another country that comes here and gets more media and attention from our PM than other heads of state. Not to mention sponsorship from all and sundry. I am truely saddened at the way we as a nation bent rolled over like a lap dog for Oprah.

    Yes I know about the tourism dollar and exposure, but what about our culture and pride?

    Pet Hate.
    Seeing fast food rubbish on the road, seeing people throwing it out the window of their car.
    These fuckwits roll up at a park, eat their food, then just chuck the rubbish out the window, usually there is a rubbish bin in sight.
    Same in foodhalls, eat and run, fuck everybody else.

    You know, they could bake more bread. You know, in tourist season.

    I hate drivers that see a queue of cars, move all the way up the side and pull in in front of everyone because they are too lazy to wait. I once pulled next to a woman and gave her a mouth full after asking why her time was more important than anyone else. She seemed really embarrassed and tried to get away but the bumper to bumper traffic meant she had no where to go.

    I once saw a guy pull his car onto a yellow line section to block the area where cars were sneaking in to the front of the queue. He obviously had lots of time and was sick of people pulling in front, but it was beautiful to watch douchebags race to the front thinking they would pull in only to find a car in the way forcing them to go the wrong direction.

    This!

    The forethought of goverments when building our roads.
    People who can't or don't do what they are paid to do, ie work.
    The price of most things in Australia in comparison.
    Having no time for good stuff anymore... remember being a kid and having all the time in the world.
    Optus/Telstra
    Really unhealthy people who don't care.
    Baseball hats worn super high on the head. You look like a fucking idiot son!

    it's the best thing about cycling - blocking those cars in the left lane so that they cannot push in. They can rev all they like...

    One of the things that makes mad... and I mean really really mad... is this believe I have that I'm Gaius Julius Caesar.

    MEN... in their late 30's and onwards who cannot "see" themselves, and believe that women in their late teens and early 20's are gonna find them oooo so hot!

    You reckon she'll go for you big time, big boy?
    Awww c'mon - you look like a reflection in a car door.
    What she gonna do? Giggle while she bounces up and down on your massive tummy as she nibbles that big hairy mole on your forehead as if it were her funny wittle chocolate love freckle?

    Im not sure about other states; but in Perth, the governments somehow love to narrow up the roads. epic examples include
    a) st georges tce (3 lane > 2 lane)
    b) scarborough beach road (2 lane > 1 lane) in certain sections
    c) oxford st (2 lanes > 1 lane)

    notice all the above are artery routes; and yet the governments/town planners think its smart to narrow up the roads. ive travelled to many parts of the world and from what i can see; no one; expect west aussies ever make roads smaller esp if its already busy enough.

    in singapore homes are forcibly acquired to make way for new roads; but understandable given its a tiny island. here in oz; we have the luxury many dont: space. so instead of cramping everyone into small houses, why not make use of our space.

    likewise, californian freeways dont cut it anymore; so they stack freeways on top of each other; instead of going wide; they go up

    +1 for hating that, I make sure I cut it square or grate it so that it's almost square
