Useless bloody technology

I’m sick of bloody useless technology. I’m sick of my Internet taking for bloody ever to connect, I’m sick of my computer freezing whilst I’m online, I’m sick of my stupid bloody download limit, I’m sick of having a pathetic computer, I’m sick of it being so bloody useless. If I wanted a useless computer, I would’ve asked for one. Good bob, I don’t care if I’m being ungrateful, I’m pissed off and that’s that. My computer is going to work. My Internet is going to connect promptly. I’m not going to have a download limit. Is that too much to ask? Is it too much to ask for things to work how they’re supposed to? I think not. So, computer, get your act together and fucking well work for a change you piece of technological crap. Your shocking ability to freeze at the worst moments makes me think I could’ve carved a better computer out of a blade of grass.

Right now, I’m not in the mood to be nice to people – apart from a select few who I quite like and don’t want to get mad at. So I’m going to avoid some MBs because I know the people there will just piss me off more, I’ll yell at them, and start some big fight. Some people are such morons. Why must they even exist? God, I have a wonderful suggestion for You: make everything perfect. Are You incapable of that? Too busy working on something new? Wake up, dead man.

OH CRAP! I think I just wrecked my Pop CD. My pathetic CD player wouldn’t play it, so I tried to clean it and the CD player by blowing on it – I haven’t given the player a clean in a while so I figured some dust might’ve been causing the problem. Well, I ended up accidentally spitting on the CD, and so I tried to clean it, and that just smudged it worse and my CD player wouldn’t recognise there was a CD player in there. At least it is working on my computer. Or Wake Up Dead Man is, don’t know about the other tracks … if it’s busted, I’ll kill something.

Grr

Lots of things are very crap and I want to just swear and yell and scream and rant but ... not only would it be gratuitous swearing, I don't have the words and I'll probably just sound like a whiny toddler. Good bob, I hate stuff. So much stuff. So much crap. Piss off, all that I hate. Die somewhere. Anywhere as long as I'm not there or plan on going there. Just piss off. Thank you.

This is the definition of stupid

This is taken from http://www.zboard.net/index.php?s=3a0ed425a87119dd7e18398fe17b5398&act=ST&f=11&t=11814&st=20#entry181646, the first post by Finally Pure.

The following two statements are candidates for stupidest statements ever;

'Secular music is a bad influence and promotes un-Christian values'

What the Popmart is up with that? I think this person is on crack.

'You're supposed to follow the rules, not question them, or try to go about changing them'

This statement is one of the stupidest I've ever read. I want to swear ... a lot. This person should receive the verbal bashing of a lifetime for the sheer stupidity in that. Blindly accepting rules is DUMB. If something's crap, say so.

I cannot get over how stupid that person is. What the zarking fardwarks is up with some people?

Stupidity is contagious

Tim is a freaking moron. Basic gist of a conversation with him today at the end of morning tea (period three is after morning tea);

Patrick: Everyone in the group has maths next apart from Tim.
Tim: I have maths next.
Me: No you don't. You don't have maths when we do.
Tim: But I have maths next.
Me: Aaron, when does Tim have maths?
Aaron (who for some reason knows Burns's schedule off by heart): Fourth.
Me: See? We have it next - THIRD period. You have it FOURTH.
Tim: See? I have maths next, like you.
Jamie: No you don't. We have it THIRD, you have it FOURTH.
Tim: It's still next. I have it next like you.
Me: No you don't. We have it THIRD, you have it FOURTH. You don't have it next, you have it FOURTH. You don't have maths when we do.
Tim: I have maths next.
Jamie: You do not, you fucking moron.
Tim: I have maths next.
And it continued like this for a couple of minutes until we walked away in disgust.

Now, this evening, Rhiana, Tim's online 'girlfriend', tried to talk to me, even though I had my screen name as "If you talk to me, you have a bloody death wish", wouldn't take my hints to go away, and when I told her how annoyed I am with technology, she said only some technology is annoying, and proceeded to comment on how her calculator has never caused her problems. Firstly, I don't care. Secondly, you have to be truly thick to not realise "That's just lovely for you" (particularly in that context) is sarcastic. Really, you do.

Good bob, I HATE stupid people. I HATE stupid stuff. I HATE stupid technology. I HATE STUPIDITY. GRR.

42

No, the 42 of the subject line has something to do with Hitch-Hikers. Today, August the 8th, is the 42nd birthday of one Mr Dave Evans, better known as The Edge, my favourite guitarist and lead guitarist of U2. Happy birthday to Edge.

This is for you, Sarah ...

I hate to break it to you, Sarah, but your Bono is not totally perfect.
