Come rant here! :D

Post by HotDog-Cart » Mon Feb 16, 2009 8:59 pm

Hey guys. This may be a little silly, but keeping those rant emotions bottled up is NOT good.

So rant here! Keep stuff pretty PG rated, please.

I'll start.

I hate bears in TV commercials. Seriously. BEARS. Like what up with the charmin commercial for toliet paper?! Since when do bears use toliet paper? And heck, that toliet paper cannot stand up to mighty bear poo! And I keep seeing this "gummy" green bear come on tv. He keeps singing this annoying song "Im a gummy bear". Its a "techno" song for a commercial that wants you to text if you want it as your ringtone. Its annoying! First, I don't want to see some overweight gummy bear dance on my tv. Second, it does a close up of his ass and he shakes it. I think its disgusting. Stupid bears.

If you have emotional distress regarding bears, then that is not good.

Oh, gosh, I hate those commercials, too, HDC. You're in good company.

I hate Valve's attitude towards the PS3. It's because of this I'm stuck with a buggy version of "Team Fortress 2" that's become a cheaters' heaven. I can't tell you how many times last night alone I had a Soldier shooting through the floor in 2Fort and destroying my sentry guns and other buildings, no matter where I put them. I know EA ported it, but Valve is the one that either has to give EA (or another third-party) the updates to port over or at the very least give EA the kick in the pants they need to fix the damn game. But no, they won't, just because. I'm considering writing them a letter about it to see if they can give a reason for their attitude or if they'll just pull some excuses out of their *behinds*, which I suspect is the most likely.

I wish my laptop had more video RAM; I could play "Team Fortress 2" problem-free. At the same time, though, I don't want to give a company that cares so little about their customers my business any more.

On that note, this is my 400th post.

I hate the fact that a certain someone in our community of benheck keeps making the most pointless thread and has been doing so his whole life. :P

I hate when people are wrong about something, and despite all given evidence against them they refuse to admit a lie.

I hate that too, Bibin, sincerely.

One thing I don't hate, though, are topics like this where you can let off a little steam.

I HATE talking baby commercials. There was at least one of these during the Super Bowl. You know the ones... The babies have creepy eyes and equally creepy moving mouths. They only serve to give me the creeps and bug the crap out of me.

I'm guessing you won't be using E-Trade anytime soon, then, jones?

Seconded. Especially when they tamper with/destroy the evidence afterwards to hide their actions. :wink:

I also hate it when people overprice stuff, you show them evidence, and they are like "WTFGTFO OF MY THREAD".

I also hate people who disappear from the internet, leaving those involved in trades hanging, even when informed this is the case by their friends. :evil:

I have other rants, but those will do for now.

Ah yes... That was the company with the talking baby commercial during the Super Bowl. Thank you for reminding me which company will never get my business.

I have plenty of other things to rant about, but I guess that is what podcasting is for. The talking baby thing came to me when I was reading this thread and I figured it was topical so what the hell.

I absolutely hate the insipid credit report commercials that keep showing. BTW, it's a (legal) scam - it's initially free, but then they charge you monthly. Also, the HeadOn commercials suck too, even if they are very effective.

And I never want to hear the words, "bailout," "stimulus," or "deficit" again. Who's with me on that?

My favorite stimulus is a case of Mountain Dew. (Oh no, I said the word!)

Since it would take an excessively long time to rant out all the ones on the top of my head, I'll wait until after school.
