I dislike how adults (mainly in the USA) seem to be confused about the female anatomy and use the word "vagina" to call the external visible bit that should really be "vulva". Completely different things. It doesn't help their sex ed seems... lacking.

 

 

You are talking about the USA here. Their sex ed probably consists of Ozzie and Harriet (look it up) in separate beds discussing how the stork brought little Ricky. I seriously doubt many Americans even know what a vulva is, let alone the distinction from a vagina.

 

 

That's easy - one's a Swedish car, the other is a little blue pill...

I dislike the common misuse of hashtags (mainly as a lazy persons excuse to say things without punctuation or spelling)

 

They are meant for grouping / tagging (ya think..) related content together.

So if no one else uses that hashtag - it's literally pointless.

Also, their lack of understanding doesn't seem to be stopping them from breeding :) 

 

 

I think facility in breeding comes from lack of understanding.

 

 

 

 

Well, I'd suggest it comes from a lack of understanding of birth control rather than one of what goes where regardless of what they are calling the respective bits.

 

I'd say it's pretty likely birth control is a topic a lot of countries don't give a lot of education about, it's probably more important than explaining the mechanics of, as I can't think of a single 12 year old who doesn't understand how to get the job done, regardless of their education levels ;)

Reviewers who give a 9/10 from food on a restaurant review but at least 1/3 of the review is spent saying this dish could have been better, or that dish didn't meet the heights it should have.

Oh yeah, very true. 

 

Online reviews can be awful, I hate the amazon product reviews too where a product is given 1 star because it does not have a feature that it was never sold as having.

Worse, when a review on the product is 1 star because a reservation wasn't available but the person didn't actually go, or the product didn't arrive in a timely fashion.

I still have memories of a job at a software company ~15 years ago where people would demand a refund because the software doesn't do X. Never mind that it was never advertised as doing X, and never mind that we offered a fully-featured 30-day trial so that they could try it out before buying it...

 

As far as I know, we always rejected those refund demands.

They also think a fanny is a bum.

I get really  pi$$ed off with people making phone calls on public transport. Not just short calls but full on conversations, sometimes quite heated personal discussions. I've been very close to giving them a serve but I usually chicken out and move seats and give them the death stare from the other end of the carriage.

uvula and vulva are near on homophonic that they could be homophobic

Not sure why this would bother you more than two people sitting side by side conversing? Is it a requirement in your eyes that people should be silent on buses or only make noise for x% of the time? 

 

The heated discussion thing, sure I get that, however, just general conversation on the phone, can't really see what the issue is. Wear noise-cancelling headphones.
