THat is a four letter word, and in the grand scheme of things, the t and h keys are so close together I doubt you really save any time. Plus is it makes you sound retarded. Toddlers may use the word dat untill they get a better grasp on pronouncing it. Other txt words are somewhat acceptable. But I especially hate when people slip in a few dats on purpose. For example, the sentence "Hey Al wat iz u doin tonite" " or rly dats cool." Notice the is is spelt with a z. I don't know if they're trying to sound cool or black or whatever, but its just retarded to switch up spellings like that to give the appearence to the reader as though you have some sort of accent or something. And to use it to save time, well dats just retarded.

I love a good rant as much as the next elitist asshole, but this one is a little obvious don't you think? Everyone with a brain is going to agree with you and everyone who actually types/speaks like that is going to think you're an elitist asshole. Which you probably are. But they won't mean it in the warm and fuzzy way I do.

Stop being boring.

You know dude, if you want to get down to it, you're not very interesting yourself. You have the most posts here and seem well respected, so I'm sure everyone will disagree with me, but since my joining in December your posts seem to lack much personality.

For example, as far as my perception of people, Ninthz is funny, makes fun of people. Hornypope is smart, insightful, and a little up his own ass. Duskygrin can and will find a way to romanticise being on her period, which is kind of amusing.

And you're.....? Honestly, you don't stand out much in any direction. And when one is not in the in of all your inside jokes, it makes you even less interesting.

And I realize there's no tone of voice on this internet, but if you could imagine mine, its more of a casual one accompanied with the occasional shrug. I'm not bitchy or anything, I'm just sayin...

Blah. It's been done about a million times before, and you still managed to make it even less interesting than before. Kudos.

protip: If I cared enough to take your analysis to heart, I would have actually made changes when people who are much more interesting than you (and people who I respect a lil bit) made this point back in 2007 or some shit.

I mean, we can't all blather on about weed, disliking 14 year old BBS members, and rants on popular culture that sound like they were ripped from some mid-90s issue of SPIN magazine as well as you do.

This reminds me of a couple of years ago, when I wrote a similar rant when I had a MySpace. It was a rant about spelling mistakes in general, or maybe text speak, I don't even really remember. Anyway, I did intentionally put in a typo to be ironic. I thought it was amusing.

It was later pointed out that this rant had, in fact, two typos. I lol'd.

So, when other people say you're not interesting, its okay to ignore them, but then go on and tell others they're boring? I'm totally down with the fuck it anyway - its just the internet attitude, but if you can be boring, don't call out others for it too.


This glimpse into your insecurity was particularly cute. Awwwww *noogie noogie noogie*
And here I was trying to honestly not make this a thing. I mean, you made an observation about me, and I one about you. I added in the last part so you wouldn't take it personally. So where do we go from here, should we exchange sarcasm and wit untill one prevails as more popular than the other? Cause dude, I can totally do that shit. Its like, my thing man. There's already hints of sarcasm all over the last few sentences. Perhaps to be super cool, I'll take the high road here, and ofcourse I'll announce I'm doing so!(even though that defeats the purpose):

JohnnyNemesis, I find it pathetic that you'd resort to such low standards in this debate of who is more boring. In order to win this argument by default, I'm like, totally too cool to continue this, cause anyone that would is an immature faggot. I hope you can continue on without trying to win petty internet arguments, you lowly faggot motherfucker. I'm going to just drop this here - its the mature thing to do. I hope your mature enough to drop it too.

Hey Al, you saw the part where JN said he doesn't actually mind you, right? Meaning he thinks you're pretty cool in general. No need to get quite so butthurt about being called boring, especially when it seemed directed mostly at this particular thread. There's even a hidden compliment in there. The implication that you are capable of better threads than this.

What do you consider an inappropriate time? I'd say it's better than having to listen to people making actual calls.

WebDudette
04-11-2009, 12:31 AM
Calls are even worse. But I've never had someone make a call unless it was important.

When at dinner, watching a movie, at a play, having an important (or even a not so important) conversation. Really, the only time I text is when I'm alone, or when I am with a group of people and we are trying to find something to do with other people.

RickyCrack
04-11-2009, 12:40 AM
i hate people that use texting as a substitute for calling. i like to text in the fact that it's like hey you at work? -- no -- wanna hang?

that's all i need. no need to converse with that shit. srsly. it's easier to call me if you wanna do that. i only have so many txts a month. it should only be used when a phone call is unnecessary.

04-11-2009, 12:59 AM

Ah, I see. You feel their attention should be completely occupied by the event at hand. I tend to agree, but then I'm not the best multi-tasker. Give me one thing to focus on and I'm great. But many people seem fully capable of splitting their attention so I can't say it generally bothers me.

WebDudette
04-11-2009, 01:13 AM
I hear 'sorry, what was that? I was texting.' or 'wait a second, texting.' way to often.

I think if it is a bad time to be on the phone it's probably a bad time for texting.

edit: one girl calls me the exts while we're on the phone all the time. argh.

Paint_It_Black
04-11-2009, 01:32 AM
I haven't really bought into the whole texting phenomenon in general. It seems like a step backwards to me. When I see people texting furiously I want to say "you know you can talk into that thing, right?"

Sure, I send texts myself from time to time. But generally only if there's a reason I can't simply call the person.

So is this going to be a general list of things that are annoying?

I hate when people ask you a question but don't stop talking long enough for you to actually answer. Especially at work where giving them the answer may be somewhat important. If you're just going to assume you know what the answer is then don't even bother to ask. On a similar note, don't interrupt me halfway through a sentence just because you think you know how it's going to end. It's rude, plus you're going to be wrong pretty frequently, especially when my sentences start to end with "go fuck yourself".

Edit: Adopting the blank stare halfway through is just as bad. If you stop listening and start planning your next sentence people will know. You're not getting away with it.

So yeah everyone, I swear I'm gonna drop this after this post, but I just have to say ooooone thing; honestly Al, responding to a jab at you being insecure with even more insecurity is weak. This should go no further mostly because 1. Again, I actually sorta like you dude, I was just being real and didn't expect the crying 2. It's fucking stupid. I hope you're not upset that I didn't really read your last post, but I doubt anyone did (jeezus, all that in response to a few sentences?! I ethered you, let it go) just like no one is gonna read mine but you. It's not that serious, so stop crying and just be cool. Be cool.

But wait, what about those people who are just impossible to get off the phone with? The people who don't care if you're tending to a sick infant, who don't care if you're at work, a concert, a bar, club, or train, they still want to tell you about the asshole neighbor of theirs without giving you a chance to free yourself?

Bigger, long-term solution: don't be friends with those kinds of people.
Temporary solution: tell them to fuckin' text you, rather than call you, if they need to contact you.

Yeah, that one. I'm quite picky when it comes to friends. Though I'm also very polite. This creates the amusing problem of only having maybe 5 friends while 20 people think they are my friend. My solution is to guard my cell number fanatically. I don't care who calls my home phone, I never answer that anyway. Leave a message and I'll call you back if I happen to feel like it. My friends have learned the value of leaving intriguing messages now.

Just re-read, the sarcasm is anything but subtle. I mean, fuck, do I have to end a post with </sarcasm> for people to pick up on me not being serious? I even said I was going to announce I was going to drop it in an insulting way(the thing being that that isn't the high road at all), and then said "ok your turn". And then you exactly did what I was mocking, taking a 'false high road' one could say, but you were totally serious. Cmon man, you're better than that.

Its ok though dude, I sorta see you were hinting at saying you were sorry anyway, and I accept your apology.

Oh, come on, man, the way you defended yourself was definitely full of honest conviction... you just used sarcasm as your medium for it. I'm on board with the group of people who like you, for sure, but just by reading your post, it's pretty easy to see that you definitely were fighting for yourself with the honest to goodness truth. The sarcasm was hastily slapped in at the end of your posts and in between the sentences just so you could try to pull it off as a joke, even though its sandwiched between the "try to read this as though I'm calm and cooled down, even though I'm writing in short, syntactically confusing bursts that create a tone of speed and anxiousness."

Seriously? You're still going with this? How disappointing. And by the way, saying "I'm being sarcastic" doesn't prove you don't also kind of mean what you're saying. In fact, if you repeatedly and obviously point out your own sarcasm it looks a bit suspicious.

Oh my god. Al, you literally give me a headache almost every time you post. You know you're acting like a fool, but it's like you can't even help yourself. And you are wrong about JN never getting called out -- unlike you, some people who call JN out on his shit, for example me, use PMs or IMs or e-mail or text instead of douching all over the forum. Try it sometime, you'll like it.

Whatever, you were misinterpreted, the internet is a purely written medium and these things happen, fine. But you are a grown-ass man and should not need someone to step in and tell you to let it die.

Wait... did I really just see this happen? Al writes a couple paragraphs about how douchey it was for JN to basically try to let it go and move on... JN tells Al to stop crying... and then Al comes back and tells JN to let it go??? This doesn't add up...

On another note, Al, "dat" is a bastardization that came from original phone texting, where -d- was simple one press of 2, while -th- was 844

Inasmuch as one press of a button is less than three, dat is more efficient than that, and is and iz are equally efficient.

I guess "lyke" and "iz" are even worse, as they're just pointless. But something about the word dat used on purpose (I read it with the d in my head) just sounds really bad.

people around where i live have a nack of saying stuff like "chillin wid mii bst m8s, bby gurl" and things like that.. some select arseholes also replace the letter e with a 3.. so "i was here 2k9" would be "ii woz 3r3 2k9"
i refuse to IM people who type like this...
the thing thats annoying me lately is people typing Twoo Kai ninee, or even 2k9 for that matter (meaning 2009)

Calls are even worse. But I've never had someone make a call unless it was important.

When at dinner, watching a movie, at a play, having an important (or even a not so important) conversation. Really, the only time I text is when I'm alone, or when I am with a group of people and we are trying to find something to do with other people.

Have you ever said exactly this before, or am I having a Dj Vu?

2k9 is actually 2900 in electronics. k is at the place of a decimal point and then x 1000. So, it's 2.9 x 1000 = 2900. Resistors can be marked this way.

I thought I would teach you something. :D

I don't know about electronics, but in this case it's obviously 2009. The "k" belongs to 2 not to 9 and, yes, it means x1000. Don't you remember y2k?

It usually takes place after a game of curling.

"Aye, I noticed you out on the ice. Nice sweeping."

"Oh yeah. You're a a fan of curling?"

"I'm all aboot curling. Hockey too"

"Well, I've got a nice hockey stick I could show you"

*porno music kicks in*

"Niiiiice stick aye"



Its actually kind of weird, they never work the syrup into the plot. They just sort of have it in the locker room, as though everybody just has maple syrup on them wherever they go. Maybe that's just how you guys roll, I don't know...
