The angry thread!

What about people who want a bigger paycheck, don't think they're disabled, but could probably make others think they were?

 

You mean the 200,000 people who stopped claiming the day it was announced disability claims would now be tested? :D

You do know that you've doomed the entire forum by starting this thread, right? Prepare for some real Dr Cox-esque rants over the next few weeks...

 

Idiots

The "no-win, no-fee" lawsuit culture we've inherited from the States. "I wasn't looking where I was going whilst carrying some boiling hot tarr, and I fell down some stairs, covering myself in boiling liquid. I also refused to wear safety clothing because it isn't stylish...but I'm still going to sue my boss for my own stupidity!"

All politicians for the past...20 years are inefficent, self-serving, corrupt, useless, journalist-and-moron-fondling cretins. I often feel a lot of the world's problems would be solved if all the politicians (and ambulance-chasing scum-bag lawyers) were locked in a building and blown up.

Making legislation that has no real value other than to appease the ignorant masses who frequent "X against Y" groups (like mums.net), that takes up time, money and has no purpose.

Hugging up to journalists. An arrogant media-boss from a certain former colony should not have the power to make or break a government.

The scumbag and filthy nature of what passes for 'journalism' in the UK these days

Tony Lair. Sorry, Blair.

The frequent re-shuffling of the education system

Northerners - or people in general - who hate Thatcher simply for being Thatcher. Look at the economy before she started work - some of what she did was justified, and if she hadn't done it, we'd have been in a situation pretty similar to the one Greece has now. That said, she did do some stuff that does merit her reputation.

Civil Servants such as those at the MoD. Buying bolts for a landrover 110 chassis that can be picked up for £1.03 at a shop like Halfords, for £126 each. Spending £67 billion over 7 years on a project to design and buy a much needed medium battle tank - only after the 7 years to have no money, and not even a proposed design for the tank. Managing to 'lose' equipment - then deny it by saying "we haven't lost it, we just don't know where it is". And we wonder why the SDR was so harsh on the Armed Forces? :rolleyes:

Guilt-whores. I'm sorry, yes, our country has done some pretty awful crap in the past. But It has nothing to do with me, so stop trying to make me feel guilty for (insert thing) There are some truly awful attrocities on-going right now you should be worried about!

 

/rant over.

For now...

Oh I can believe that.

Who would Dr Cox want to be friends with more than himself? :lol:

(I'm not a fan of facebook, but believe me I would 'like' your post if I could!)

 

I've already got more rage:

 

The SNP. I'm pretty Scottish, and I can accept an element of independence (like Wales or N.Ire, with local powers). But full freedom? Hahahaha, that's the most ridiculous idea I've ever heard. Why don't we just let Leeds, or Huddersfield have their own independence. I'm sure they'll do fine.

Ignorant electorate ("I really like the SDP! I fink dey'll really sort out all dem imgrants!" - you support a now defunct Russian socialist movement from 1903? Good for you...)

Spineless politicians and MPs

Hugh Jackman. Numerous reasons

The non-stop deluge of crap that Hollywood manages to get away with filming and publishing

Historical innaccuracies in documentaries. Is it really that hard to tell the difference between the 23-ton American M3 Stuart-Honey light tank, and the 76-ton German King Tiger tank?! Really, what the hell are the editors and researchers on these shows being paid for? The fact that one of them is only just bigger than a transit van, and clearly has Yank flags on it, and the other is covered in Nazi symbols... ARGH! I hate you History/Mil.History/Discover Channels!

People who don't appreciate penguins.

 

I know! They're amazing creatures. Did you know that the four eldest male Emperor penguins at Edinburgh Zoo are officalally in Norwegian Navy? I even went to one of the ceremonies where they appointed them their titles - King Olaf or Niles, he's a group captain or similar high rank.

 

Militant cyclists. The rules of the road apply to everyone, regardless of whether you pay road-tax or not. Pisses me off no end when they sail through redlights and then swear at me (a learner) when they nearly crash into me.

 

People who quote family guy. I enjoy family guy. Sure, I don't think it's the funniest show in history, but I can appreciate it has comic value. But what drives me round the bend? twats who quote it non-stop. Especially the un-funny lines! Jeez, grow up!

 

But do you know what's really getting me angry right now, at this very minute? People who are intolerant of other people's cultures. That and the Belgians.

If you're lolling in your pants, you got problems.

 

People who don't respond to emails. I'm trying to see if the service you provide is worth my money, as in, I want to give you money. How is that not worth a five minute email?

As a cyclist, my pet hate is other cyclists.

 

When I was eight, my school forced me to do cycling proficiency. This was basically an hour a week for a whole term of cycle safety, from helmets, to how to fall off. I continued that and started riding a much more efficient bike (I got myself a road bike, swiftly followed by a carbon framed racer), and from then I have always observed proper road rules and highway code.

 

People who don't do so (and the same goes for many motorcyclists), who do things such as weaving in and out of traffic, going over red lights etc, risk their lives, and it frustrates me that those people do it, time and time again and survive, and some people who are just in the wrong place at the wrong time are killed (very heated topic for me, for very personal reasons).

 

Learner drivers aren't so bad, provided they're in a dual control vehicle. Or at least, as long as they start that way. It's the ones who's parents are insistent on teaching their kids themselves that are bad; they pass on bad habits and old technique from the off, it's not conducive to my stress levels on the way to and from work, and it's not conducive to the safety of your children.

Sorry Hubert but learner drivers. Not saying they are all bad by any stretch but some people are hopeless.

 

People who hate learner drivers!

No, I'm joking, I can perfectly accept this one. Hell, I hate learner drivers! I'm not perfect - but then I've only had a few lessons - but some learners drivers are just terrible, even after 20 lessons.

I still hate militant cyclists. Possibly moreso now.

 

Builders. More specifically, builders who start work on my neighbough's house at 6.30AM with heavy machinery. WHY?! You're in a residential area, why do you think bang on the dot 6.30 is a suitable time to start using the angle-grinder/jack-hammer/dynamite/etc? I, and a lot of other people are trying to sleep!

 

That every day I think that News International isn't capable of stooping to new low levels - look how wrong I was about that this morning...

Well I'm glad that this thread exists because I just had a good hard lol reading all of it, especially Finius' first post and it's making me feel better about life.

 

Still, what's making me angry is that despite having nearly 200 views, my post in the 'guns for sale' section STILL hasn't had ANY direct replies!

 

Someone buy my damn gun so I can buy an gas L85/AW.338 D:

Agnositics, I mean, really, just make your mind up.

Aetheists. Some are as bad as, if not worse than religious nutters.

Theists. Can you srsly not see the scientific advancements must be done now without you getting in the way? Have your views, fine, but don't force them upon your kids or try to prevent human advancement beause it 'offends you'

 

I class myself as a PEARList (Physical Eidence And Reasoned Logic ist)

+1 Totally agree.

 

Also, I might refer to myself similarly if you don't mind. We'll put it on the census next time around!

The majority of all online gamers. SHUT. THE. HELL. UP! I shouldn't have to turn my headset off because a little 12 year old (who's mummy bought an 18R game for...naughty naughty...) won't shut the hell up and learn some goddamned manners. It's team talk, not lets just have verbal diorreha over a microphone...

That brings up another thing, the lack of manners in society.

Militant feminists. I'm holding the door open for you because I'm standing next to it, not because you're a women. It's call politeness, I'm not a chauvenistic male pig (well, in public)

The overly touchy-feely culture we have. No, I'm not hugging you. It isn't because I don't like you, it has nothing to do with the fact I'm a cold hearted git, I just don't work that way. Hugs = someone I'm very close to, not just something I hand out randomly
