Alright, here is my moment to vent… here is a list of things that irk me. You might find the talking points on this list may irk you too. If none below irk you, all the power to you.

1. The rising price of toilet paper as each passing year goes by. Do not get fooled into buying the budget brands of T.P. either, it is a gotcha by the toilet paper industry… they want the inferior T.P. to disintegrate in your hands as you wipe away… forcing us all into buying the premium brands.

2. Why can’t the United States of America just have a universal law passed abolishing the yield sign? From my daily observations of traveling by car, no other motorists seems to understand that yield is equal to or means STOP!!

3. Why hasn’t there been another trip to the Moon? I mean, like, it’s been practically 40 years since we made the last trip… forget about frequent flyer miles, NASA.

4. Why does the U.S. Congress get a PAID Summer Recess when these politicians already get numerous paid vacation days, holidays, sick days and goof off days – courtesy of our tax dollars? Oh, I forgot, we the people are not supposed to question our elected officials.

5. This has bugged me for eons now…  why do television golf commentators whisper while giving the coverage of a tournament? 

6. What exactly is the excitement of televised poker? Obviously, I must be missing something here. 

7. Reality television, (non-celebrity), dads who all think and act like they are the ultimate dad. My point is well made here, just ask Kate.

8. Hybrid cars… yeah, they are so easy to buy, there are so many hybrid auto dealerships to choose from too. Plus, as a bonus, they are so inexpensive. Right.

9. Is it cloud to ground lightning or ground to cloud lightning? Huh? I wish professionally paid meteorologists would finally decide on which one to call it… they all reference both, I have finally come to reason and just call it dangerous lightning myself.

10. If styrofoam is known to take light years to decay in landfills and very few municipalities recycle it, then, uh, why is it still made and used?

Oh, yeah, what would a list of things that irk me be without Rock Music? Here it is… #11 on this list: How come The Moody Blues and The Electric Light Orchestra are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? 

Ahhh. I feel much better now. Maybe this list was thought provoking, maybe it was a waste of your time. Regardless, if you are reading this line, then that means you at least read the list… thank you for visiting.

A list of things that really bug me

Posted in bad television commercials, common complaints, corporate buyouts, everyday experiences, everyday people, everyday social experiences, late night talk shows, sports controversy, things that bug us all with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2009 by Metal Odyssey

MetalOdysseyJust due to the simple reason that I need to vent here, this is a list of things that have really been bugging me lately. Plus, I can make this list and share it, for all the world to see, which is really, really, cool. Enjoy the list! (Note: list is not in any particular order of importance, save for the first item, which is truly #1)

* Wealthy CEO’s crying poor, looking for we the people to bail them out with our hard earned tax money – well, Mr. or Ms. CEO, that is what ya’ll git, when ya’ll probably lied on your damned resumes in the first place. It is time for ya’ll to go back to The University of Ignorance.

* Politicians – ’nuff said here. 

* Career Politicians – especially the really, really, old ones. These morons think the world would stop rotating if they were to step down or (gasp), retire.

* Pharmaceutical commercials that advertise – serious side affects can be death or… And to think, I always thought death was it, your done. I never knew that death was a side affect. 

* Pharmaceutical commercials period. 

* Tampon commercials. Hello, tampon marketing executives… I think women already know they need to buy this stuff every month. 

* Rolling Stone magazine having declared (a short while back), John Mayer a guitar god. Uh, yeah, whatever. 

* Major League Baseball – for never putting an asterisk on all the recently new homerun records. Duh?

* All late night talk show hosts. Your all no longer funny. Your all just a bunch of political analyst wannabes. Plus… your all getting to be like… career politicians.

* Who’s gonna be the next Food Network star? Uh, WHO CARES. Really.

* Always being told, at the bank, sorry, we are all out of one dollar bills. (Are dollar bills worth more now, since they are so rare at the bank?)

* Why, someone tell me, why, are auto manufacturers still installing signal lights on new cars? NO one in front of me, while I am driving, ever uses them anymore.

Well, that is about enough for now. I usually never go this route with my Metal Odyssey blog, however, sometimes it just feels good to let it all out.
