I did too and had to go back and read the sentence again. My second reading wasn't nearly as awesome.I read that as 'human'. Puts a slightly different spin on it.

When I'm watching football and someone -- usually Phil Simms, the cretin -- mentions that "when Willie Parker carries the ball over 25 times, the Steelers are 20-1" or some bullshit like that. What's the implication? Oh, just hand the ball to Willie and they win! Guess what, you moron? CORRELATION ISN'T CAUSATION! Do you know WHY Willie Parker has 25 carries? Because the Steelers are up by three scores and they're killing clock! His number of carries relate to the Steelers winning because Big Ben threw for two scores in the first half and Troy picked off a pass and forced a fumble! Are you even WATCHING, you brain-dead oaf?
Of course, Phil Simms thinks statistics are for losers and he'd never trust any numbers to make any decisions for him, by God, you've got to know about the kid's heart!
Maybe I just have Phil Simms nerd-rage, but then I think about Joe Buck and just who in the hell thinks he's even a little bit good, he's an obnoxious little tit! Raaaaaaage!
I'm very popular on Sundays.
Guys, we have threads for limp wristed vegetarians and bloodthirsty barbarian meateaters to flail at one another over who is living the right lifestyle. This doesn't need to be one of them. This is a thread for airing your grievances, not offering up your concerns for discussion.
Speaking of things nerds do that enrages me, I can't stand those gawky little dweebs (I knew several in high school and university) who go around quoting Monty Python sketches in their entirety all day long.
Mimicking something that was previously adjudged to be funny doesn't make you hilarious by association. Just sad.
Is this equivocal to the situation where 3 or more nerds are watching a movie/game/whatever and someone gets badly hurt, someone just HAS to call out : "I'm not quite dead yet!" ?Speaking of things nerds do that enrages me, I can't stand those gawky little dweebs (I knew several in high school and university) who go around quoting Monty Python sketches in their entirety all day long.
Followed by a volley of super awesome and funny quotes from the black knight scene.
Yeah. Those people.
Oh, I know. It's just that the Pythonites seem to be the most common and the loudest among those I've encountered.
As a Pythonite I just have to say...
I didn't expect a sort of Spanish Inquisition.
Well that and fellow journalists who writes about new findings and statitics without understanding any of the numbers and jumping to whopping conclusions regarding causation.
Or journalist giving nutcases equal representation in some weird misplaced sense of fairness and being objective.
Well basically just stupid fellow journalists...
Oh, and anybody posting "print is dead" or "do people still read XXX".
*Yawn*ing and *sigh*ing.
Let me also add : people who post comments like "*getting the popcorn*" in the middle of a discussion. Die.
FLASHING BABY ADS!
(I'm looking at you Vance Vance revolution)
People who cannot understand fundamental grammatical rules. It's/its, their/there/they're, whatever. Yes, it's nitpicking. I'm also right, fuckers.
Twilight. Anything and everything remotely related to Twilight. The fact that I know several ladies in real life that luurrrrrrv it does not help this at all.
Oh god, the biggest one: People who name their characters something -- usually in an MMO -- but the actual spelling of the word was already taken by some unoriginal fuck and so they misspell it. Seffiroth. Ragnarrok. And even better, people who use alt-codes to use foreign characters to get the name they want. And it's always something terribly awesome, like └ragorn. I hate you all so much.
I'm well beloved in our server's trade channel.
Back on topic:
People who doubleclick on icons in the quick launch bar.
People who continue clicking on the icon even after it's obvious that the application is starting.
Also, while I'm no fan of banner ads in general, I fucking hate the ones that involve a repeated animation of people dancing. They're almost always for mortgages. For a while there they were silhouette people doing line dancing, and I hated that, but the new trend seems to be poser characters doing some kind of hideous rave dance.
Oh, and a very personal one. I hate it when people talk about their vacation in Florida and they say something like "We went to Disney World and Epcot." Epcot is in Walt Disney World. You're thinking of Magic Kingdom. Which is also a part of Walt Disney World.
Almost all of the students in all of my classes, and all of the work that we get assigned.
Everyone on WoW that's incompetent at the game but expects to be carried through Ulduar because they show up to the raid to contribute their shitty DPS/tanking/healing. Learn to play, fuckers, I do more damage than you as HEALING spec.
Anyone that exploits bugs in PvP. Fuck you, I hope you get banned, even though you won't because even in games about PvP, nobody gets even a slap on the wrist for exploiting in PvP.
I ran across this last night on FX HD which was showing League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. In SD. Letterboxed. Cropped.
The awesome thing is when you don't even actually get 480P content this way, but instead shitty 480i content.
