Iím actually still like that. I love shopping for things like new hiking boots but couldnít care less about clothes for the most part. 90% of the time Iím in work attire or a hoodie and jeans.

Clothes shopping consists of grabbing anything that looks like it matches throwing it in a cart, trying it on as fast as humanly possible and leaving just as fast. God forbid my wife comes with me. I love her to death but just no.

† †Lazy jerks who don't shovel their sidewalks or clean their cars off after a heavy snow.† It seems that at every seventh or eighth house the walks aren't shoveled.† I realize that some of the houses might be occupied by a handicapped person or someone who is too old to shovel.† But there aren't enough incapable people to justify the amount of unshoveled sidewalks.† Dammit, I'm sixty six and ten days after major surgery I shoveled my walks and driveway after a fifteen inch snow so I don't want to hear any bullshit.† Get off your lazy arses and clear your sidewalks.† Also, in this sue happy country if you don't shovel your sidewalks and someone slips and falls in front of your house you might just end up in court.
† †† And after a heavy snowstorm you'll see some jerk driving around with two hundred pounds of snow on his car.† This can be very dangerous to the person driving behind said car.† He can be temporarily blinded or if the snow has had a chance to thaw and refreeze it can take out his windshield.† My state of New Jersey has probably the thickest lawbook in the country.† Many of the laws are superfluous and stupid but we have one that I strongly agree with... that a driver is directly responsible for any damage, injury, or death caused by snow and/or ice coming off of his car.†

Oddly enough in shows like Alone that seems to be the number one thing that gets to people. So many people give up a chance at half a million dollars and publicity that can be worth far more than that just because they cant take the endless days filled with nothing but themselves.

I read a story about a guy that was a fugitive from the law. He ran into a forest area and dug into the side of a hill (IIRC). He had a perfect hide out and no one could ever find him. Until a year or two later when he just stopped caring about hiding because the boredom was so bad.

I feel like this is similar sensory overload to what we have with food. In modern society we are used to such a wide range of flavors and foods its possible to get appetite fatigue and simply not eat anymore when you are restricted to just a very few things. Ive gone through this myself and its a weird situation. Likewise we are used to always having something to occupy our mind that if we had to live simply like you mentioned it would just about drive us crazy.

1. People who dont give credit where it's due. Even if you dont care for someone, if they worked hard on something and accomplished something amazing, swallow your pride, be a man and give them a pat on the back and a "well done".  If the response is "Well it couldve been better" or worse a constant "Ive done better so..."  it makes you seem like a very small person.



2. Also, people that hold grudges for small things. Life is too short. If someone is beating an animal or child and you want to hold a grudge after laying them out I get it. But if someone says something that strikes you wrong be open about it and move on. Dont let it fester. And more importantly dont be so damn sensitive.

I used to be this way years ago but now Im the opposite. Now I might say "@#$% that guy" and then the next day be having an open conversation with them. I think its healthier to let things go but thats just me.

I agree.  That's just downright rude.

† †MonSatan (Monsanto) created the weed killer Roundup.† It turns it Roundup kills people almost as well as it does weeds.† There are currently 20,000 cases in litigation against Monsanto by people with cancer from Roundup. Already two billion dollars in damages have been paid out with ten billion proposed.† As bad as this is it's not what pisses me off.
† † To this day Roundup is still on store shelves and PEOPLE ARE STILL BUYING IT.† How (*^%$)&%%$ing stupid can human beings be????

Forewarning, this is not in reference to anything that has happened on this forum.† Just something I've come across a few times in the past couple weeks.

There is a post on a forum, and the first person responding to it feels the need to quote the original post.† So the forum thread shows the entire original post twice, pictures and all.† If you are the first person responding to a forum post, you don't need to quote it.† Everyone will already know what you're replying to.

This was a short rant too.† All done.  Cheesy

Not enough people use Mark and Quote. Instead of taking the one part they want to reply to (like I've done Cheesy), they just use Quote which then has that annoying effect of lengthening every post.

    Someone got paid millions of dollars for thinking of this.  Why?
