RE: Ranting corner
Ha, I was just thinking about this thread...... Rolleyes

Since I bitched about my car getting painted in here, I may as well give the good news too.

I went to check on it this morning, as the painter called me to say that it was done but needed wet sanding and and buffing..... well, color match is perfect and he did a great job so far, but it'll still be a few days before I get it back. Undecided

Other than that, I could rant about the wind gusts today... 25mph+, and blowing my little bike all over the place.. but still, a good fucking ride !! Cool

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

Every astronomy, nature, tear pulling story, and oh-ah video I see this cliché.
"God is great."

I am so dam tired of it! There are things I would love to bark across right now! How about one of us hang around one of these people and show them just how annoying it is to hear the same line every dam time something happens at all!

When they drop a pen or any kind of object, stub their toe, nearly or indeed bump into someone, browse up an image of injury, look at sexy pictures, sigh from frustration, use a cuss word, get a flat tire, unplug something by accident, on and on, I'll say in their ear "Houston we have a problem." I wander how long they could stand that irrelevance without feeling just a little tortured?!

I hate hospitals. My mil has some mystery thing going on and despite every test under the sun they can't figure it out.

Her insurance will cover part of all this guessing game and we're on the hook for the rest.

You should have quit your job, but before that you would replace all U's in Duck with I's. I do find Dick Dynasty a better name for that show.
Great, now I'm depressed because I missed that genius opportunity!! Weeping
I imagine a show called Dick Dynasty would get pretty big after a while.

RE: Ranting corner
Okay ladies and gentlemen, I wish to tell you a tale, it's not really a rant, but how often do people actually rant in this thread anyway? And I don't think we have a thread for general stories and I'm not going to make one 'cause my average threads get like three responses and die.

On with the story:

So, as many may know I elected to revisit my classes from Year 12 as my Year 13 to improve my grades; as part of this I am redoing my Biology course. Now an important note here, my biology teacher (whom I have mentioned many a time here on the forum), was also my homegroup/room teacher for the last five years, so surely he has spoken to my other teachers come report time about my work and my other teachers are often highly praising of my work (assuming I actually work up the balls to submit any of it), so he should know that despite my years of suck and total ineptitude I'm actually very capable student and it's not unknown among my more 'common' teachers.

So, today we got our first practical report of the year back (after about two weeks waiting or more), when he gets to me and hands me mine he goes to walk on and suddenly stops mid step, takes a step back to me and asks flat:

"Did you write this, or did you have help?".
Excuse me? Did I do my own work?!
"Yes, I did it myself." I reply more than slightly confused.
"Oh, it's well done."

... What?
Without a doubt, this is the most backhanded compliment I have ever received! It was a real compliment but it was so off-handed that it is insulting!

RE: Ranting corner
I hate how literature is butchered in translation.

Almost every single book I've bought translated in Greek is terrible terrible terrible. I can do a much better job.
It's ridiculous. They are being paid to do something they obviously couldn't care less about.
And I love translations. And I will never be a translator. Fuck you world Weeping

Even on TV shows. "Tiger Woods" was translated as... "tiger woods". Yeah. Woods with tigers? No fucking idea.

RE: Ranting corner
I was supposed to return back to work today, but I woke up in unbearable pain which has not subsided. I cannot function today without being high on pain pills, and I cannot drive to work high on pain pills, so I called in. My head feels like it got trampled in a stampede, and it doesn't look much better. I've been laying down in the dark with the shades drawn since I woke up. Urgh!

RE: Ranting corner
Sinus infections fucking suck!

My whole head feels like it's in a vise, my ears are ringing, and I have spent the day either sneezing, blowing my nose, or trying to see through watery eyes.

I won't go into the fever and chills.

FUCK!
