Since this thread got pruned also, I guess I could start off the new one by bitching about that, but I won't. I will, however, bitch about the walkway in front of my apartment being iced over which, of course, I didn't see till just after I'd planted my foot on it, scant milliseconds before I went flying into the air and slammed down on the steps, yelling, "Son of a BITCH!" :lol: I laugh at the image it must've been, but not so much at the wound on my knee and the nasty knot I now have on my shin. Bastards.

Oh, and I'll try to come up with a poll so this one doesn't go poof at some point, too.

My vote goes to the kids. I can't believe how annoying I find high schoolers now days. I just want to go around hitting them all with a 5-iron.

...and I just graduated in 2002.

Now you must excuse me, sonny...I'm off to slug down some Geritol and crank up the Lawrence Welk on my iPod. :lol:

Voted for the kids. It's not that I hate kids, I want kids of my own someday, but man...

Just STFU you spoiled brats!

...I'll be nice now.

Think about where I work and you'll be able to determine which way I voted.

You sure like to bitch a lot. Personally, I find it intoxicating. Maybe it's from all those years of marriage, you know, you begin to covet what you know.

Damn, wasn't the old Bitching thread started by RHCP, formerly Ole Miss Blues Girl? Talk about the wayback machine. I'm going to bitch that that thread was pruned.

When I'm elected President, I will issue orders to the military to shoot on sight, any punk wearing sagging pants, or his cap on backwards or crooked.
If they survive the first shooting, and repeat the offense, they will be locked in a room and forced to listen to Frank Cusamanno tapes 24/7 for 5 years.

I thought of another option that could have been added to the poll--commercials that are roughly 50,000 times the volume of whatever show they've interrupted.

I'd also like to bitch that I can't edit the poll. :lol:

The FCC regulates everything else, why don't they require a "normalize" audio level for television... It's just wonderful having the fillings jarred out of your teeth when some of these commercials come on. :evil:

Luckily, I record about 90% of what I watch, so I spare myself that horrid bit of torture most of the time. :)

Me, too...I just particularly noticed it today on one of the NHL Network's commercials. At least they've introduced a new one into the lineup, I guess.

A lot of TV's used to have a function that senses volume changes on commercials and will tone them down. Doesn't work with a satelite receiver or cable box though. Haven't bought a new TV in ~5 years, so I don't know if that's still an option though.
