    Oh yeah... one of those threads. You get to spill all your hate and make it go into oblivion.

    I hate many things but the particular things that made me start a rant are plugs. Yeah, those horrible beasts. The ones I hate in particular are polarized plugs, transformer plugs, and a combination of both.

    Just look at this crap:
    [​IMG]

    WHY IS THAT NECESSARY??? Why do they have to go only one way? The output in the wall alternates anyway so that makes the polarization POINTLESS.

    I think transformer plugs are pretty self-explanatory. Just look at this horrible beast:
    [​IMG]

    D: ... Why can't it be like this:
    [​IMG]

    Oh that's right, because some manufacturers are just straight up morons. Sony doesn't have the transformer plug problem. They either build it into the power supply or if they can't fit it (in the above case of the slimline ps2 plug) they put it in the middle of the wire so that it doesn't hog all the plugs in the wall.

    The worst are a combination of both. This is the brink of stupidity. Not only does it hog a large amount of space, you also can't flip it over to fit another space hungry monster. If you got two of these:
    [​IMG]

    You're just straight up out of luck. The manufacturers are laughing all the way to the bank as you struggle to fit all that plastic in the tight area that is your wall socket.

    [/end rant]

    I'm done... This post isn't complete as I also hate ketchup, songs that repeat, stratocaster guitars, and Indie rock. Do tell about your most hateful things that are insignificant. I love rants ^.^

    lol! Indie rock. XD im not laughing on the outside because im tired as hell, but on the inside i am rolling.

    you now, i rant all the time, but sadly, the only thing that is coming to mind is Twilight. i hate it. wtf? and i am not even going to waste my breath on it.

    stop lights. i don't HATE them hate them because they are there to keep us safe and keep some control. but jesus christ, i like to go. and i hate lights that seriously TAKE FOREVER to change. even when there is no one there! it's like the stop light is thinking, "HARHARHAR! I'm going to make you wait ten minutes to make your life miserable!" especially at night.... omfg. there was one night about a year and a half ago, maybe two where i was sitting at the main stop light in my little POS town. i was waiting to turn left so i could be on my way home and i was watching the rotation of the light (i memorized the rotation and what time i will go). THE ****ING LIGHT SKIPPED ME AT LEAST TWICE!!!!! it's like it wouldn't even bloody acknowledge i was RIGHT! BLOODY! THERE! i was pissed. i was beating on my steering wheel and saying a lovely amount of obscenities. well, my little brother was in the car with me (we worked together at this time) and was like, "Hey, maybe if you yell enough and beat your steering wheel up, that cop over there will let you go thru." so, i started to yell more and throw my hands around. Mr. Cop of POS Town pulls up next to me and says, "Yeah, you can go. I've been watching you for five minutes now and it hasn't changed. It's safe, so you can go."

    but yeah, stop lights that ****ing take forever. a lot of the time i wish i was a cop so i could have my lights on all the time, pass thru lights, and speed as much as i want because i can do that and what is a civilian going to do? i like to drive fast. safely, but fast. who doesn't like going 70 or 75 on the freeway at night when there is hardly any traffic? huh? HUH?!

    ok, i think i am done now. i have many as well, Boog, but for now i am done. dude, have you ever watched Foamy the Squirrel? he does awesome rants. you should watch him. you might relate to what he is saying. restaurants.... that is one i could rant about for a while.

    quirky independent comedies

    they don't do anything new or interesting

    OMG WHAT A QUIRKY AND AMUSING DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY

    OMG TEEN PREGNANCY I WANT TO WATCH A MOVIE ABOUT THAT ESPECIALLY IF THE MAIN CHARACTER SOUNDS MORE LIKE SHES I30 THAN A TEENAGER BECAUSE SHES JUST A MOUTHPIECE FOR THE WRITER

    or, hey, we don't know how to write for a female character, so after about 20 episodes of giving her barely any dialogue lets just kill her off and save ourselves the trouble

    Star Trek time travel bull ****, lets completely **** everything up and do crazy ****, and then time travel undo all of it at the end of episode just to make sure we did nothing but waste 44 minutes of your time

    see also - IT WAS ALL JUST A DREAM!

    theres more, give me time

    1. Crosswalk violations. No one on Earth knows the rules of crosswalks. Drivers are supposed to wait until the pedestrians are ALL the way off the street before beginning to make the turn. But no one does. They need to be fined heavily, and those fines used to build a utopian society. Pedestrians have the right of way, end of story, it's the law. If the laws are not enforced, then I should go an burn down the student loan buildings, right? Since no one obeys or enforces laws?

    2. Older generations of old farts who leave giant messes for the next generations to handle. I do not live in USA, but the thought of that many obese ADHD children with autism having to pay China back their 11 trillion or w/e they owe makes me angry on their behalf. You Americans should go around clubbing elderly people all the way to death. Hey, this is a rant thread; I can say these dark things!

    Boogy, I suspect you've been watching the Angry Video Game Nerd. If not, look at his Sega 32X review. I think thats the one where he *****es about the power blocks.

    Also, to contribute:

    One thing I hate. The girls who make the "Duck Face" in the pictures they take. I hate it so much that I made an "emoticon" for it.

    8-^

    That's the duckface, and I hate it with a fiery passion.

    Sonata I've seen the 32x review as well as the Atari 5200 review where he continuously struggles with the power plugs but that's not why I made this rant.

    We just moved into a new house and since always I wanted a huge desk to have a lot of space to work with (ya know, the kind that makes doing homework while listening to music almost enjoyable). The problem is, I have a wall outlet right behind the table and each time I want to replug something I have to go down and plug it in. But that makes a big problem because there are only about 6 outlets (after a splitter has been put in) and yet still, there are about 3 plugs that won't fit in there so I constantly have to get down there into the dust and replug everything so I can use the desired device. Why? It's all thanks to bull**** tranformer plugs that's why. The most horrible of them all is the god damned router plug. Yeah, believe it or not, the router plug is the most annoying. It's small, about the size of a phone charger, but it is just about big enough to make the adjacent plugs not fit. It's literally 1cm of difference (after pushing it a little) that makes the other plugs not fit *bites desk and breaks off the keyboard drawer*

    Seeing the Transformers movie, I have another thing to complain about. Why do I hear all the time people tell me (no, not people, GUYS... cause I have YET TO HEAR a woman tell me this) that Megan Fox pretty much makes the movie worthwhile? No, she doesn't. Read that 10x and make sure you burn it into your mind. Megan Fox is a horrible addition to the movie. I don't know what the producers were thinking. There are a hell lot better alternatives to her and that girl role she plays almost doesn't seem to fit into the movie. We have a nerd, robots, war, and a dumb love store in which the corpse bride is played by no other than Megan "The *****" Fox. I hate her -.- She's not alone though. From all the actresses that I know, I also hate Debra Messings (for taking over House on USA with her **** show about being a whore called "Starter Wife"), Anne Hathaway (for starring in bull**** movies and wasting talent except maybe for "The Devil Wears Prada" which was a decent flick and nothing more), as well as Angelina Jolie (although for some reason I would be 100x more pleased if she played in Transformers instead of Megan Fox). That movie was horrible anyway -.- I didn't like it.

    EDIT: oh and I forgot. Sonata, I understand what you mean. I hate those pictures just as much as you do. Except we call those:

    :rolf: :rolf: you posted about this on facebook the other day. you forgot the video, tho. i think you should totally do it. ^_^ makes for a good laugh. oh, and Marahumm also said about the duckface:

    see, i have a friend who is a sweetheart and she is as much estrogen as i can take. pure valley girl, but sweet. i have known her for SIX YEARS and for as long as i have known her, she has ALWAYS. duckfaced. she has a gorgeous smile, but most of her pics she is duckfacing. i seriously want to report her to antiduckface.com, but im way too nice and i cannot find it in my heart to do it.

    give me a girl i cannot stand (and there are a few of them) and i will gladly do it! :D

    Marahumm wants to know who the **** told you that? He wants to punch them in the face.

    if it makes you feel any better, she is not going to be in the third movie. the producers replaced her with some model, icr her name. so, happy birthday. :) that's my gift to you (yes, i know it is NOT your bday).

    got one:

    I don't need that gift Leo because I've watched Transformers only once and decided that it is no longer worth my while. It does not matter to me who they choose for the third movie but judging from the fact that she is a model.... it'll either be the same thing or even worse.

    EDIT: and for the sake of not being connected to violent events on Mara's behalf... I'll keep "their" identities secret >.>

    EDIT 2: And I don't get the picture.

    3. Girls get those giant compass tattoos on the small of their back, like men need a compass to tell which way is south. Why so many of those? Do you know how the male visual system works, ladies? How it evolved? Men that do not look hard enough down there were eliminated from the gene pool eons ago.

    boogyman, don't a lot of house fires start from clogged power outlets? I'll bet those clunky dinosaurs saved many lives!

    If they come from clogged power outlets it's solely because of those stupid transformer plugs. Have you looked at the power ratings of those things? My guitar amp transformer plug outputs only 14 volts at some milliamps (I don't feel like going behind my desk to unplug the beast and look at the rating. This of course wouldn't be a problem if it was on the wire as I could probably still reach it). Things that don't need a transformer usually drain the provided 120 volts (240 in Europe I believe. idk about Asian) at some higher amp rating. You could plug 6 LCD monitors into one wall socket and even though it's cluttered, the chances of a fire are relatively small as compared to plugging in a vacuum cleaner, air conditioner, and some other power hungry device which will result in 3 transformer-less plugs and almost certainly a blown fuse; in the event that your fuse doesn't blow, it'll most likely result in a fire. :whistling: I'm not trying to be aggressive, just stating how I see things :thumbup:

    I don't know what duckfaces are. I'm familiar with ducks, I'm familiar with faces, I just never saw the two combined.
