kryptonjohn: Heh Mike, I shouldn't laugh but that image is kinda funny!


It is funny, especially when the tyres squeal atleast I can't be done for sustained loss of traction 😊

 

I wouldn't bet my life on it. My FIL got a fine for 55KM/h in a 50 Zone on a Bicycle.

Trademe in general. Most recent annoyance is someone who according to trademe live on the North Sore, Auckland. And they are selling an item that is pickup only. But they say in the text that pickup is in Rotorua.

 

The item they're selling is a garage door - no I'm not going to drive to Rotorua and back just for that. And anyone who is in Rotorua, and needs a garage door is not going to find that listing. As they will be looking in the Rotorua listings, not the Auckland ones.

Does EVERY video on youtube have to start with someone saying "What's up guys".

 

Is it a new rule on youtube for amateur videos or something?

Leave random comments telling them what is up.

"Without further adoo" is the other annoying youtubism that so many use all the time.

While I am on this theme - starting a sentence with "So...".

 

I never noticed until John Key started doing it a couple of years ago - drove me crazy - Every sentence he started seemed to start "So".

 

It seems that 90% of the english speaking world do it - not saying he started it.

 

As they say in Italian ... Allora

(This is probably already in amongst the hundreds of pages in this thread..)

 

American TV shows or movies when they stop the car but don't put the handbrake on, just throw the car into park and let it rock back and forth

 

I think in the past I've researched opinions on this, and people argue either way, but I just don't get why you wouldn't do it

 

 

 

And while i'm at it, autocorrect wrongly correcting multiple words, but not auto-capitising "i" or "i'm" or "i've" etc for my lazy ass (that's not too lazy to use a handbrake)
