OK, I'm done. I figure people would realize I'm just messing around.

I don't even like Radiohead, but find some of their fans hilarious. Particularly the crazy over-zealous dedication, like they have no room to be fans of any other kind of music. Another funny thing is the irony of their accusations of a person being narrow-minded for not thinking Radiohead is the pinnacle of music.

Although, perhaps the most cringe-worthy funny part of the more extreme members of the Radiohead fanbase is the stringing together of praise-type adjectives. It's like they just opened an English Thesaurus and grabbed a bunch a bunch of synonyms for "great" and "talented" beginning with the most obscure, and working their way back until they hit commonly used words (they only got to those because they were running out of adjectives)..

I really liked Radiohead in college. I suppose I sort of still do, but I haven't listened to them in years lol

That reminds me of a good annoyance actually... people who dog pile on hating a band far beyond what is reasonable, usually just to be contrarians.

The two that spring to me are Nickelback and Coldplay. Nickelback has received by far the worst of it, and for the life of me I just cannot see where this unbridled hate is coming from.

I'm no big fan, but they sound like most other bands and aren't terrible while the singer is widely reported to be one of the nicest people in the industry (perhaps it's because he never defends himself?); Coldplay, meanwhile, is a legitimately good band that most seemed to either love or, at worst, feel apathetic towards. I think the turning point for them may have been that song they did with Kanye which (in my opinion) was honestly very catchy, and otherwise their music has been far more upbeat lately than the sadder songs earlier in their careers.

There's nothing wrong with not liking their music, but I really don't see how they deserve to constantly be a punchline. What's odd is when I've spoken with people about it in the past, they all generally agree that they don't actually hate them lol... it's just some weird joke everyone is in on.

Creed hate is justified, though. :D



Around the Network

- People that throw trash in the street and/or through the car window
- People that listen to loud music in public places
- People that don't flush the toilet in public toilets (That's so gross, ugh)
- Soccer World Cups (I'm Brazilian and I couldn't care less about soccer, so it's very annoying when everyone starts talking about it and nothing else)
- Brazilian Funk ""music""
- Good music with bad rap parts shoehorned in the middle of the song (See: Havana by Camila Cabello)
- When someone makes stupid questions that have obvious answers
- Dust
- Messy rooms/tons of stuff out of place
- People talking during movies in the theater, especially those children with parents that don't care and won't make them shut up. (This is by far the worst offender for me).

Anyways, as for me...

People who confuse then/than.
People that smoke. Don't even care if it's in front of a building, walking down the street behind a smoker is annoying as well.
A load of others that I can't remember off the top of my head as well.

Edit: Add VGC's ignore feature being locked behind a paywall to mine.

Are you okay with people that vape?

No, that's even worse. Smells so much worse than regular cigarette smoke!

Oh oh oh, I just thought of what might be the most annoying thing I've ever come to know.

Virtual signaling of the "humanity" variety.

So often you hear people say stupid things along the lines of : "We humans think we're so intelligent compared to animals, yet we constantly do terrible things like be racist, commit rape, go to war! How smart are we really, huh?!" or "If Aliens ever came down to Earth they would be so confused and appalled at how backwards we are with our politics, wars, and racism!!!" or "I just lost all hope for humanity."

Just the stupidest, most inane #wokeness imaginable. It's like they're not even aware of how dumb they sound when they say stuff like that.

I'm guilty of this.

But whoever said the thing aboutmosquitoes ... those little fuckers are just terrible!



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
