Dudes that like Dude(s) will have a whole new connotation.

Make it so.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I'm sure a kid would rather be named Dude than some 4 syllable nonsense, or some other dumb variation like Jak, that has to be spelled out every time.

Exactly.

Sup y'all. My name is Dude X. The X doesn't matter, I'm just a badass unless the name doesn't fit. But if it does... watch out bitches.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I'd like to echo that, but I'm a dude that never got into wrestling.

I know bro was the first to make the turn to writing and is legit a smart guy, Mick Foley/Mankind just came to mind... but I have no idea the relation other than obvious context clues.

Still tho, **** ya bro.

Wintergreen flavored gum.


Dude Wintergreen on the other hand is not a bad name, maybe leaning too Native American like North Lightfoot not that there is anything wrong with that unless you actually have the heritage of a mint farmer.

Arbitrary values in rules.

Went up to the store earlyish today before the heat turns on too much. Grabbed some beer. Not because I needed it, just while I was up.

Was told they can't sell beer before 8AM. Why 8? Why not 9, or 7 or 6:48? Why any restriction at all? How about cigarettes (or anything else that's bad for you), are they under time control?

Does me no harm, I'll go back later or tomorrow or something.

I did point out it was already past 8 in Cincinnati, where Kroger is headquartered, but they couldn't work with that.

Blue laws back in the day were the worst. Sunday replaced Monday as the worst day of the week. But I felt totally justified in being pissed off about not being able to buy beer--or much of anything else.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Yeah, the blue laws were finally changed here for liquor ~10-15 years ago.

Auto dealers still can't be open on Sunday. WTF?

My father was a city councilor for our small town for a while. IIRC, there was a law that the bars had to close on Christmas Day, and this was under debate.

From his perspective, that was a clear violation of the separation of church and state, and thus not legal. He didn't drink, so he didn't care personally.

I remember his explanation being something like, the government is implicitly preferring one religion over any others by forcing these places to close on Christmas. He couldn't support that law.

If we wanted to make a rule that said, "You must close your bar at least one full day during December," that would be fine. But not ok to specify a day with religious overtones.

Plus, being a software developer for 30+ years, I hate hard-coded ****.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

i dont like lots of regs. but some make practical sense and are good.
closing on christmas eve early or at some time on christmas day makes sense as do we really want drunk parents around on days spent mostly with the kids.
not really a religious thing as most people celebrate i t as just a holiday unless they are religious.
