Things that Bother You in an Inexplicable Way

The fact that musical acts that are known for making upbeat songs always have their biggest hits be their most boring song. People would want to feel upbeat, so why do they want to hear songs on the radio that would make them fall asleep? One example of these acts is The Cars. They’re known for making upbeat songs like “Just What I Needed”, “Let’s Go” and “Shake It Up”, and yet their most successful single is “Drive”, a slow, driven-out bore fest.

People with a large obsession of a fandom who reference them in every sentence, especially those who’ve I introduced it to them. Such as TARDISES. It makes me feel regretful, and guilty with a hint of hypocrisy.

I dont know why it gets me so mad, but when people say “I don’t want to lift weights/go the gym, I don’t want to get too big.”

Yeah, because its that easy to build muscle, right?

The “childish” factor.

I hate it when things are “childish,” but I’m okay with things being “child-like.”

Like Mario. His old-games were child-like, all-ages if you will. Like Super Mario Bros 3.

Then I play something like Mario Super Sluggers – and it’s so sugary that it’s nearly impossible to play, with that Latiku always giggling at me about stuff like:

HEY MARIO! YOU HAVE TO SHAKE THE WII REMOTE IN ORDER TO GET THE BANANAS OUT OF THE TREE!”

And all I can think is

The existence and spread of the brony culture.

I love the show and the fandom to death, and I think it’s a show that most people will like if they have the patience to look into how deep and well thought out the show and writing is, but to this day I just do not get how so many people were able to look at this show long enough to see that it wasn’t just a shallow girl’s cartoon.

It really bothers me, but in a good way.

Female pony fans > bronies, any day.

@Lone K.

I’m guessing UNITINU was not your favorite meme.


@On topic

For some reason I get really irritated when people don’t read post dates and reply to 3-4 month old posts which are no longer relevant. It happens a lot in comment sections.

2 things I hate:
Intolerance
The Dutch

The Dutch

What bothers me is putting ‘’Best before’’ on a package of food, and then printing ‘’See bottleneck’’ underneath it, instead of just putting the date there

Naw. The two N’s aren’t mirrored, so it’s perfectly fine with me.

DLC.

What happened to unlockable characters, costumes, maps and other content through hard work and long hours playing the same level just to get a certain item or level? Now, all you get is an either an incomplete game or all the cool stuff you have to buy. I mean, I can see having DLC, like, 3 or 4 months after the games release. Like, they didn’t have time to put it in the game, so they delayed, had more time to work on it, and slapped a price on it for the additional hard work.

Most fighting games have all the characters unlocked at the start. Before, you only had the main characters and to get everyone else, you had to go through story mode. Then you had extra characters or challenges to unlock everyone else. Now, I can see if the brought out a dlc a month later like, “Hey, remember that villian guy everyone liked in our last game, but we really didn’t care and have time to put him in. Yeah, that douche is back for dlc. So, like, buy that shit”.

Anyways, my point is, that I think it’s stupid I have to pay money for maps, characters and costumes that could’ve easily been put in the game without a price tag on it.

Of course, that’s how game companies get their money, now-a-days…

When people say “You’re a 90s kid if you remember this” and post a picture of a cartoon that began in the 1990s but ran well into the early 2000s.
