    Pet peeve: "something that a particular person finds especially annoying."

    Grinds your Gears: see Family Guy episode on this.

    Here's some of mine:

    Grammar Nazis/Grammandos. These people are more focused on the misspelling or misuse of "you're/your" and other details of the English language (which btw has a really f*cked up and complex spelling structure, so naturally people will misspell things anyway by it's own design). They even have "spelling bees" and championships in the U.S. for this. Often we write stuff and it's faster thought than typing, or auto correct messses up. Anyway, they will simply ignore the message and just point out you can't spell. Ridiculous.

    Complaining about FB. If you don't like FB, just don't sign up and don't waste time telling people to get off because you think it's best for you. The problem is generational.

    30s and older: Generally cool with FB, because they grew up with, in their age wheelhouse. Simply be smart about it and use settings to customize.

    20s: Reddit age wheelhouse. They will use FB messenger to contact EVERYONE they know because FB provides that value, but they will tell everyone to kill it otherwise because their mom is spreading smart-vaccination articles.

    Teens: Snapchat/4chan

    If you were older you would be cool with it. The younger people/millennials and younger, don't want to be around their PARENTS - who are in the FB wheelhouse age group. They use ads because WE DON'T LIVE IN A SOCIALIST STATE. Obviously they are a business and they provide your data for use of the platform and it's benefits. You can use the platform yourself for your benefit and business or pleasure, mostly to keep in touch with family and friends. You don't like that they put a description on top of the posts because you're a smart redditor who doesn't need that? Well get the f off FB and stay hidden behind an anonymous mask with ad blockers. This leads me to the next thing that grinds my gears.

    Another thing - FB got scammed/fooled into providing data to the political agency that helped Trump get electoral college win. Instead of targeting them, they choose to target FB as the bad guy. Wrong.

    Ad Blockers for every site. You want to extract and use the content someone created on a site, or their service, but you don't want to give anything back by way of advertising. Sure some of the ads, especially in the beginning of internets, were HORRIBLE and malware or virus prone. That has changed. Now, realistically I'm guessing people using ad blockers are due to going on porn and pirating sites (stealing other peoples stuff and saying you are helping them while you do it). Unless we have a socialist welfare in place, people have to make a living and advertising is one way integrated into a free market system, or limiting the service to a site. If you don't want to pay anything or see ads, don't go on the sites. Sites should recognize blockers and block the users from using the site.

    That's all for now. I will add on to this list later. I'm probably not going to make any new friends with these views.

    My gears grind harder when meeting people that have surrendered their minds to the group they try to belong to and hide in

    spelling or grammar? Polish spelling is excellent, close to sanskrit or something that sounds the way you spell it, but the grammar is excessively complicated adding no value to the words, it's like really bad code that could be cleaned up.

    That Q info from there? Dark Journalist says it's bogus and calls the site a porn site. I associate it with middle schoolers exposing the girl who's sexually active and shaming her, punks/bullies at school you want to punch in the face types.

    Site design horrible.

    no Q was originally from /POL/(politically incorrect) before she moved to another chan named 8chan where she has her entire own board
    also Q is just an menber of trump's team trying to give her boss free propaganda, i remenber that very early Q left hints that she (yes, she!) is an woman at DT'S main swamp, dont remenber name though

    and yes there is a lot of bad boards(99% of them), however /x/ is an exception and sometimes (key word) you can find quite the whoopers there but you have to be patient

    McCafe coffee... GROSS.

    I usually go to one store Stop&Shop and they have my coffee YABU, but today I had to get something from ShopRite and they didn't have it.. so I am *right now* trying it.. disgusting. shm how do people drink this stuff. Maybe I just get used to one type and they do also.

    Also DunkinDonuts coffee is bad I think. I only go there to use the bathroom if ever. Starbucks good, but way overpriced.

    You guys?

    Lets see, what else grinds my gears?

    Eminem being viewed as one of the best rappers, and certainly the best Caucasian.

    He's HUGE with the Millennials. They worship him like a rap god.

    The reality -he sounds like an angry chipmunk. Horrible to listen to. The good about him is he's skilled as a lyricst, decent acting and great business sense - getting with Dr. Dre and riding his cred.

    The guy who paved the road for him is non other than Vanilla Ice. Not only does he sounds a lot better, he could dance and if you ever gone to any one of his live shows, absolutely kills it.

    The one mistake he made - he didn't sign with Public Enemy/Def Jam. It would have been same move if Eminem did not sign with Dr. Dre if given a chance. Ice took the money and when they showed him the millions to wear parachute pants, he said "what color."

    Public Enemy was one of, if not the most credible rap groups of the 80s and I don't see how it would have went down the way it did had he signed with them. Another thing, the money from Ice Ice Baby partly paid for the establishment of Death Row records and Dr Dre/Snoop Dog, etc, and indirectly even Eminem going down that path. Vanilla Ice is one of the most underappreciated talents who got a bad rap because he was white.

    Since then he's made many records and been touring, doing shows at small venues. Plus he has a hit show flipping houses today. He's collaborated with Wu Tang's Darkman, Chuck D, and long list of big names in the rap game since. The guy is a legend and a better rapper than Eminem but will never get the respect he deserves.

    In his own words


    Here with Rick Ross recently.

    Oh God ~ Mom's and their wacky ideas. I wouldn't be worrying about provident funds. I'd be worrying about finding a hot guy you liked and who loved you. The world can go to hell in a hand basket in a half hour ya know. Sept 1939, Dec 1941, 9/11, and host more. You have no idea what the powers that be have planned for your life destruction wise, but they do have something planned, so control what you can that matters most is what I think. Mom, well she will...get over it, or eventually maybe forgive you for not following her know it all advice.

    Yes the Elitists are living as if there is no tomorrow, but it is irresponsible, and not really advantageous for us all to live like that. The result is chaos.

    But, people know something is wrong... people sense the end...
    At least, the end as we know it.

    So, in a way, Gambeir is right, but don't give into apethy. Continue to work hard and improve your knowledge about survival.

    Learn knott tying, harness building, snare setting... what field greens are safe and good to eat...

    And yes, when you are old enough, you may find real love, but figure out who you are first.

    I cannot stand listening to any rap or hiphop music, one of the worst music genres besides country...

    Ah well coffee is critical. Starbucks is an upper grade coffee, whereas the colored water they sell at Dunkin Donuts and 7/11 is a low grade green bean coffee like folgers and other canned coffee beans.

    A coffee can in the supermarket mostly contains robusta, which is low quality Arabica coffee bean, and also often past crop (old) coffee beans which are really not fresh beans, plus it's already ground. This is about the worst thing you could do with coffee in general.

    Quality coffee, whether in a coffee house or in a supermarket, should be 100% Arabica (except for espresso blends). You must grind your own coffee on demand. This means you need to buy a coffee grinder. Walmart or other stores carry these for about $15 to $20 dollars and they last for a long time in most cases. Ours is at least 12 years old. Buying fresh whole roasted beans is the key. Never have them ground as this defeats the purpose of keeping the beans fresh. Ground coffee only lasts a few hours, not more than one day at the most if not properly protected in a valve-seal bag.

    The next thing is don't buy any other kinds of coffee than French Roast. French Roast is the real coffee roast. If you want to add something then you have the option. Nothings worse than getting some coffee someone has bought and ground and then expecting a soothing cup of Java only to rudely discover it's some crap like carmel java nutmeg that the would be coffee connoisseur thought would show off their "Savoir~faire."

    Experiment with different brands of whole bean roasted coffee but always by buying french roast or double french roasted, and of course always grind your own coffee and only when you're ready to press the on switch to the coffee maker.
