You don't root for and against people in real life the same way you do in sports.
By you, you mean?

And presumably because how Phil does in the Greater Hartford affects your life on a day to day basis. I'm sure your relationships with celebrities are categorically more pure and rational than others.

That was midly annoying to sift through, but I understand it's a big deal and all...I just have a cold heart as of late lol.

Anyways about 2hrs later she makes a new post about being pregnant because the first wasn't enough. Awesome. Like 15 mins ago she makes ANOTHER post about it saying "Can't sleep, tummy hurts, hello prego life "

It took every ounce of my energy not to type something extremely rude like, "we ****ing get it, your pregnant."
People who congratulate pregnant 19 yr olds (or younger).

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

shemp,

You're not stupid enough to that you're misunderstanding my point.

When you watch something with a rooting interest, it's more compelling if there's a hero and a villain. Phil is the bad guy, so I root against him and make fun of his ***** tits.

It's just a totally different manner of thinking than when you scroll through your google reader and think "Boy I really hate that Lady Gaga".

One thing that really gets me heated sometimes that really shouldn't is when donks make retarded plays at 50NL cash. These plays are generally +EV for me in the long run, but sometimes they are just so stupid that it makes me angry. It's not rational and it's something I'm working on.
This response right here. Should be able to just whistle right past it, but nonononono GO ****ING POST IN ****ING N00BLAND UNTIL YOU ****ING GET PAST THE ****ING NEED TO POST INANE ****ING **** LIKE THIS, MR. ****ING WORKING ON YOUR ****ING TABLE COMPOSURE.

lkasghl;ksdghisgioeoehoaghlkgck;nvxckgioa;gh;aighd glksdglkgsdagh okay. Sorry. Sorry everybody.

YOU EVEN ****ING SAY '50NL CASH' IN THAT ****ING LABELLED FORMAT ARE YOU ****ING JOKING MY **** okay. Okay. We're done. You don't have to fall into a hole or die in a grease fire or anything. You're fine. Everything's fine.

Also I don't like / root against the Spartans because in the early '00s their fencing team was bad and full of jerks. That's not terribly rational either.

I guess I'm stupid enough to think you don't have a point. This is a thread about irrational/unjustified hate.

I don't think I've ever seen Lady Gaga, up until 2 days ago I think I'd never heard of her. I assume it is a her. I'm pretty sure I'd hate Lady Gaga. If not, I reserve the right to hate someone else every bit as relevant to my day to day life.

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

Whoever said chewing food is on the mark. Especially when you have to over hear someone with a big jaw doing it.

Another thing that makes me mad is at four way stops when you're like a block away and some guy is sitting at his side of the upcoming stop sign waiting to see if you come to a complete stop. It's ridiculous, if they just took a small pathetic risk and went then they would be across by the time I get there, but instead they just sit passively. Scared to death at the idea that everyone approaching a stop sign could be some maniac who flies through it in middle of the day while clearly slowing down from 50km/h. Next time this is about to happen I'm going to slow down to 10km/h from half a block away and see if they wait. If they do, I will lose my ****.

People that don't know the difference between your and you're. Actually, maybe I'm right to be pissed off by that.

I think he means he loves reality shows. Otherwise he wouldn't have felt the need to put the word "fictitious" in his post.

I agree. Following a TV show that's on for at most 1 hour a week is a total waste of time. Think about what they could be doing with that hour. Waste of life.

Following 2? you might as well kill yourself now.

For me, chewing food pisses me off more the closer (relationship-wise) I am to the person. So it is worse listening to immediate family and close friends eat food fairly normally than it is to overhear some random guy chomp and slurp excessively at a cafe. I think this is because I could, in theory, say something to friends and family about how ****ing annoying they are, but with strangers I am completely powerless.

A good example of this is at the movies. Barring excessive bull**** like popping open multiple cans of Coke, I am okay with sitting in a packed theater next to strangers who are eating stuff. But I won't ever go to the movies with friends who buy popcorn or candy.

Haven't read any further in the thread but its pretty obvious to me that he's just trying to be funny, its a joke. There is nothing sinister behind it. Pretty strange that you didn't/don't realize this and it has bothered you enough to post about it.
