Some religions are more annoying than others. I remember in my youth admiring some Franciscans, Sikhs, Unitarians and Krishnas.

But any religion that proselytizes is annoying, including Mormons, Southern Baptists, Seventh Day Adventist and in general evangelicals.

I'm an atheist now.

How could something that sounds so cool be so lame? Guaranteed to turn potential engineers into business majors.

I guess Amazon said "hey, Google Stadia was a complete failure. How can we make a really awful product also?"

The HIDEOUS noise my cats make when they want to be fed, and the even more annoying thing that they do this when they have a bowl of food, and the only way to get them to eat it, is put a tiny bit more food on the top. 

 

It makes me dislike my cats.

I find just picking up, shaking the bowl, and putting it down is enough to fool my cat.

I've seen a number of articles that different cat "accents" vary by region.

I also saw a Japanese study that cats know their own name, but ignore you anyway.

"Well hi"

Saw a guy on an e-scooter today, absolutely pelting it downhill, and riding in the middle of the road. I'd say he would easily have been doing 40 km/h (all black scooter so not obviously Flamingo/Uber). The bulletproof young man's choice of personal safety equipment? An anti-coronavirus surgical mask, in a very stylish black. Not a helmet to be seen.

 

Less "really annoys" and more "shakes my head at the yoof of today" or "damn kids skateboarding on the sidewalks".

 

 

This also makes me shake my head in disbelief. 

 

I'd easily get to 40km/h down a hill with wind assistance, but I'm not going to be doing it without at least a helmet. There's one stretch of my morning commute where I am almost said "guy on e-scooter": I am on the road, going downhill and usually peak at 38km/h, but there's no way I would do that without a helmet...you seriously would have to be mad!

10 digit passwords with a requirement for upper case, lower case, special characters, and numbers.

 

Obviously they want everyone to write down their passwords.

Or they want people to have passwords that are not easily cracked with dictionary attacks. 

 

What's really annoying are limits on password size - "Max of ten characters" or "Max of 16 characters". If you are hashing and encrypting there's no need for a limit like that. I like my passwords 32 characters or longer, thanks.

Yeah, 10 is a pretty short number, Should be 20+ minimum.

I'm with you! Didn't have a problem with what he was doing at all. And if I didn't have kids to transport, that may well be blmy chosen for of transport too. But a surgical mask!?

It reminded me of the number of bugs I've inhaled while biking or running over the years.  They are definitely small things that really bug me.

Yeah I know but there's just no need to force all these complicated passwords that nobody can remember on people. Just make it longer. A simple 3 word nonsense phrase is easily remembered and many times harder to crack than a 10 digit password on a sticky note. Which is more secure and which is easier to remember "P@rseword8" or "purplegoatcheese"  :)

Just use round tables on triangular supports and the problem is solved.

 

 

 

 

Not necessarily - it might rock on two if two are on level and one isn't and you happen to lean on the table opposite the single leg that isn't and it allows enough leverage.

 

 

 

 

?. When he says 'triangular supports' I'm guessing he means tables with three legs. A table with three legs cannot rock.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.
