Jokes about autistic people. I know, I know, I’m going to be up to my ears in downvotes, but I know too many autistic people, and a few of them defy the usual stereotypes the internet gives them, and it rustles my jimmies whenever I see a joke about them.

Downvote mania in 3…2…1…

I’m downvoting not because of your opinions on Autism jokes, as I have High-Functioning Aspergers (similar to Autism), but because you’re trying to karma whore by saying you’ll receive downvotes.

Things that grind my gears:

  • When people ask me if I know “Beethoven’s Symphony” on the piano. (A symphony is an orchestral work, not for solo instrument.)
  • When people think that Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee” is the “hardest piece for piano.”
  • When people say that I’m jealous of someone because I say that I don’t like them.
  • Everything about the Xbox One.
  • When Square Enix doesn’t release Final Fantasies VII-XIV or a lot of Kingdom Hearts games on Nintendo systems, for SOME REASON.

The fact that people complain about High Fructose Corn Syrup. There’s nothing wrong with it. All there is to it is taking the starch from corn, adding natural acids and heat to break apart the chains of glucose, and then add enzymes to break down the glucose into fructose. That’s all there is. And it’s because of this that Snapple thought it was a good idea to change their formula, well guess what, their fruit punch doesn’t taste as good as it once did before.

PvZ2 is going to be Freemium, and the Freemium content is plants and stuff that shouldn’t cost money, plants like Squash, Snow Pea, and Torchwood.

You know what’s grinding my gear this very moment?
A fucking satelite spy ad that beeps and goes faster after a while, and I’m trying to watch videos on Youtube at the same time and I have to close this tab to watch the video, then reopen it when I want to check back here.

I know this feel. I don’t get why people feel the need to put you down for working out. Calling you a douche, saying the gym is your life, calling you a faggot, saying you have a small dick, etc.
Fucking ridiculous.

Well, there’s no way to tell if the 6 pack girl is a douchebag or not.
I kind of respect girls who work out to that level, as well as men who dance ballet, female taxi drivers, male Gardevoirs, and anything gender defying.

What? So because of a few douches like that, its ok to attack people in the comments section of Facebook for posting pictures of yourself?
Anyways, notice how people on /fit/, bb.com, and r/fitness were against him? Its because a lot understand they weren’t born ripped and respect those for trying to get into shape. The fact is that its wrong to put others down, period.
Edit: I can honestly say that I’ve never seen someone pick on someone at the gym. The people serious about working out won’t give two shits about others there. they are busy working to improve themselves.

I sincerely hate the hive-mind mentality when it comes to hating Call of Duty.

“Man, Aliens: Colonial Marines sure is bad…BUT AD LEEST ITZ NOT COWL OF DOOTY HAHAHAHAHAHA LOLZ

Seriously, fuck those people sideways with a chainsaw. Shut the hell up. It’s not even that bad of a game – it’s actually pretty decent. You just like being an angry asshole because kids like it and that it’s popular.

Yeah, it’s got yearly releases. Guess what? Almost everything else that is successful has yearly releases too, including games, movies, etc. That’s why they’re successful.

^ why? I think most people can understand why someone would find very offensive jokes offensive. I don’t think we, the Kym community, are that stupid.

You know what grinds my gears? On deviant art, I saw a comment were I guy complemented an artist and finished with “god bless” only to be insulted by the artist saying that he needs phyciatric help because he is religious. What an asshole. I hate people like that.

You know what I hate more?

The CoD vs Battlefield arguments.

There’s not much of a difference between the two, and with screenshots of those games, it’s nearly impossible to tell which one’s which.

My wall is dedicated to rocket jumping, make it have longer reach then, you fucker.

Now, I hate getting headshots/backstabs/random crits as any other person, but I don’t want Sniper and Spy removed from the teams, I just take it and keep fighting.

Yeah, the arguments are ridiculous. I can only tell the difference between the screenshots because I’ve dumped hundreds of hours into each of the series. But it all comes to down to “Aim, shoot, reload, repeat”.

Call of Duty is fun for just messing around while Battlefield is great for tactical play. End of story.

That’s not true at all. They play completely different. Cod has teams of 6 or up to 12 players I believe with various game modes and except for World at War has no vehicles whatsoever, so it’s usually smaller maps. Battlefield Is 32 players on console, 64 on PC and focuses much more class based, conquest type gameplay with various vehicles in the mix playing a huge part in the matches. The maps are huge and teamwork is completely vital for success. Call of Duty you don’t really have to work with your team, it’s all about kills for the most part. I would never say they play the same at all aside from them being FPS games. I think anyone who’s played both would agree that the multiplayer experience in both are very different
About looking the same, well shit, they are both modern military shooters. They can’t really look much different.

@chokesmurf

Aim, shoot, reload, repeat

The same could be said for any first person shooter. Doesn’t mean they play the same.

Edit: I see I’ve grinded someone’s gears. Tell you what, tell a fighting game fan the Marvel vs Capcom 2 plays the same as Street fighter and see what they say. I mean its just fighting!

You obviously haven’t played both because there are clear differences. Besides, why would there be an argument for what’s better in the first place if they were too similar?

In fact, read Dac’s post. That’s very accurate.

It’s not that people work out that makes them a douche. It’s that some people insist on wearing tight clothes, posting shirtless Facebook photos, and constantly talking about their bench press. That makes them a douche. It doesn’t help that they so relentlessly look down on people who don’t work out consistently.

I lifted and ran everyday when I played high school football. When I got to college I continued running, but I stopped lifting because it doesn’t actually have many health benefits and I would rather have a healthy cardiovascular system than “show muscles.” I also didn’t want to use the college gym, because all the inhabitants were small-dicked douchebag faggots whose life was the gym. Just kidding, but seriously many work-out enthusiasts are pretty douchey.

I’m going to concur with that, because a lot of those people are there to show off.

Protip: Having a bit of weight on you has many health benefits.

When I say a bit, I’m saying that it’s ok to pack on a few pounds, emphasis on a few. Clogging your arteries will offset any benefits you gain from having a bit of extra weight.

Think about it like this: If you’re going on a trip, it’s good to bring extra supplies, but having everything but the kitchen sink will just fuck everything up. It’s the same with one’s body.

Something that’s also been bugging me lately is people talking/bitching about politics without knowing a damn thing about it.

Yeah, it’s ok in my eyes for people to be what I consider wrong. It’s not those people that bother me, it’s the people that don’t even try to learn anything that bothers me, particularly the people that just say “everyone’s the same” but they can only describe the platforms of two or fewer politicians at any given time.

Also, whacko conspiracy theorists. People that actually believe in stuff like tornado machines and NWO and Illuminati are a drain on the per capita intelligence of the world.

(I got into it with a few people like this lately)
