Of course it isn't. Actually, as long as you don't shoot yourself, inhale too many PVC cement fumes, or have the thing blow up, it's actually quite good for you. 3 hours straight using a bike pump for a pneumatic is really exhausting.

@Kenny_McCormic: Interesting. Both of my parents were the oldest children in their families, and my younger brother always thinks they're having a go at him.

I can't truly claim to be the oldest child in my family, but there's only three minutes between me and my twin bruv.

Now as for another thing that pisses me off: Stupid disclaimers and advice that has to be put on things now because of the increasing risk of getting sued for some reason.

In fact, it's the increasing number of people sueing each other that pisses me off. Take this for an example:

Man trips up in street. Sues council for bad repair. Gets money. Council now has less money to fix the streets (they're not insured against ligitiation), and gets sued even more often.

Is that dumb or what?

Yeah, I HATE that too!. If really fat chicks try and dress up and wear make-up and stuff, It's just like "Unless you lose 300 pounds, you will never be hot! Don't dress up like your all that, cause it just makes you look even more revolting! BTW, I DON'T WANNA SEE YOUR COTTAGE CHEESE LEGS"

I agree 100%! Eventually, there would be no people left for the warnings to be needed.

I also hate when people act like they're one tough badass and they're dead serious about it. I act like that with my friends because they know I'm messing around and usually it turns out being funny because I do it sarcastically.

(this one probably makes me the most angry)
I hate when people take a word like "thing" or "mother" or gangster" and make it "thang" "motha" or "gangsta." It makes you sound like an idiot and it's really not cool as some people seem to think it is. This includes any form of ebonics or gangster talk or whatever that crap is.

I hate when cops abuse their powers.

I hate when black people and Mexican people cry racist and want sympathy.

(you can thank Spudtech for this one)
I hate when people who completely mess up whine and cry. This would include people who ignore the rules and then break them and then cry "ohh (crying) I didn't know!" or when some teenager gets drunk and then gets in a car accident...oh well! Perhaps you shouldn't have been drinking in the first place! :evil: :evil: [REALLY UBER ANGRY FACE!!]

I hate when people say their rights are being violated when some figure of authority tells them to leave their cell phones at home or any case like this. Yeah, we have rights but if you abuse them then you deserve to loose them.

I hate the way my blood pressure is rising as the smoke comes from my ears from thinking about this stuff :lol:

"Warning on a hair dryer: Do not use while sleeping." well if I actually could I'm sure I wouldn't...

"For external use only!" -- On a curling iron." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :lol:

""Warning: May contain small parts." -- On a frisbee." The stickers maybe?

This thread is so funny :D

I hate it when you consume mashed potatoes too fast and you can't breath and when you wake up in the morning finding you slept in a strange position, leaving you aching all day.

**I checked the spellcheck to find I spelt I'm wrong and it gave me these corrections for it ; Iamb and Immy :P

honestly, i think the think i hate the most is ppl keeping secrets. it just pisses me off. especially if theyre about me

also, i hate it when ppl think because i like making spud guns that im going to run around shooting people with a homade shotgun when i grow up. NO!!!!!!! just beacuse i make spud guns doesnt mean im a crazy sadistic person. gaaaaaa.

one more thing. i honestly dont like people using soda bottles as pressure chambers. unlike PVC, soda bottles, when heated to about 80 degreese, begin to loose their structural integrity and start to become more like ballons. JUST DOINT USE THEM

gaaa im done venting for today.

wow I'm not alone.
I got a new one. I hate rich kids who get their parents to buy them some fancy racing car, but the kids don't know how to drive it, but still try to show off, and make fools of themselves.
I also hate the grinding of gears on a car whos driver can't drive stick and won't admit it. It really makes me want to go beat the sh*t out of the idiot whos ruining the transmition and is to dumb to realize it.

There are so many silly things on boxes, including:

On the bottom of a cake box: Do not turn upside down.
On a bottle of sleep aid: May cause drowsiness (Well, what else do you expect the damn stuff to do?)
On a bag of peanuts: Warning, may contain nuts.
On a chainsaw: Do not attempt to stop chain with hands. (And there was me thinking that this chain that's just gone through a tree would be stopped by my hands.)

Wanna know what I hate? People who always cry about police brutality, especially the media. They can go to hell and die.

There was recently a case here in Chicago where a female bartender was battered by an off-duty cop. But what the media did was constantly emphasize that this guy was a cop -- and yeah he was a total moron, but the media only shows the public what THEY want public to see, and when it deals with cops... it's usually police brutality. Everyone hates the police until they're needed. No respect!

My entire family are police -- my mom, dad, brother, his wife, and so are most of my friends. I chose to go into IT instead of following my family's footsteps, but besides the point. Most cops are good, upstanding people and are just doing their job. And those who had to get rough with criminals always say that 99% of the time, they did something to deserve it. Think about it, you see the show Cops and people are always running and then claim they're not guilty. Then why run? Or resist arrest -- yeah, let's take a swing a a bunch of armed police. Of course you're going to get your butt kicked, retard!

And I'm not defending all police. There's definitely a bunch who shouldn't be in law enforcement and are just dirty. But when the media jumps on crap like this, they do an extra good job of smearing the law enforcement community and give good cops a bad image. I just hate that.

You would be surprised how people fail to think sometimes. I heard about a guy at our school machine shop who tried to stop the mill (when it spins down after you shut it off) by grabbing the end mill bit with his hand...that didn't work well as you can probably imagine.
