This is a question I don't understand the attraction

Smaug says: Ricky Gervais. Lesbian pr0n. Going into a crowded bar, purely because it's crowded. All these things seem to be popular with everybody else, but I just can't work out why. What leaves you cold just as much as it turns everyone else on?

Here's a nice list of things that I personally don't understand
Mince Pies - I hate them, but every single year, when my Mum gets a fresh batch out of the oven and eveyone digs in, I'll always try one and end up throwing it out after a bite and for the next 5 minutes I'll feel like an outsider because eveyone else is enjoying their shitty mince pies, all smug and festive.

Salad and sauce as standard - I like to taste my burgers and sandwiches. If I order a ham & cheese sandwich, I want ham & cheese. Not ham & cheese & lettuce & tomato & mayo & whatever. Pre packed sandwiches are completely out of bounds for me because they have all of these extras. Also, if I ask for a burger with cheese and bacon, please give me it. Don't assume that everyone shares your love of onions and tomato sauce and lettuce and all the other shite that goes on it. And don't look at me like some sort of paedo when I ask that all the salad and sauce be left off.

Shit TV Shows - Lost (good to start off with, apart from the odd fake polar bear, but should've changed it's name to 'Found' a long time ago)
Prison Break (they broke out of prison in the 1st series, so I stopped watching, assuming it was over. It wasn't.)
Any soap, anywhere (Are people seriously so dull that they can be entertained by these things? The acting's shit, the script is shit and nobody's ever happy. It makes half an hour feel like about a week)
Reality TV (Last time I checked, record executives didn't give you the time of day, let alone sit and watch you every week as you butcher yet another classic. There's nothing real there)

Rugby League - The Aussie national sport. I know, I'll pick up this egg shaped 'ball' and run at a gang of massive fellas, get twatted, roll the ball back to one of my mates for them to have a go, five times and then the other team has a go. I've treid to get into it, but for someone who's grown up playing football, there's no skill involved in this game. And AFL's shit too. A point for a miss? How do you even miss an infinte tower of a goal with no keeper?

Motor 'sports' - Sports are played by athletes. Drivers are not athletes. (Edit - looking at this, I can see where I went wrong. I know the drivers have to be athletic, what I should have said was, "I don't understand the attraction of something as a sport if you rely on an engine to win")

World Poker Tour - Why is this on ESPN?

Pokies - For the Aussies on here, you'll know what I mean. Pubs and bars have dedicated so much space to these things that there's an average of about 1 square metre of space left for everyone else to sit down and enjoy a drink. All you can hear is shitty pokies music and bells going off everywhere (and if you're one of those cunts who have a pokie song/bell as a ringtone, please die, slowly in front of your entire family, you twat). I'd rather keep what little money I have for booze than risk it on the stupid odds you get playing pokies.

Babies - Everyone turns into a retard around a baby. They all look exactly the same and you're probably scaring the shit out of it by making all those faces.

Loud music in cars/headphones/mobile/coming out of a speaker on your window facing out into the street - Why is it always the worst kind of music? You'll never hear a bit of Beatles being pumped through a massive sound system in a Skyline or a crackled mobile phone loudspeaker. It's always chipmonk Rn'b which has been twatted with auto-tune. You knobs. And also, modern "Rn'b". Rn'b is rhythm and blues, like Motown, not Akon.

Skinny jean bashing - I personally wear skinny jeans and can say that there's a surprising amount of room for my junk. Fair dues, I'm no donkey in the cock department, but for me, they're comfortable. The people having a go at them need to try them before they knock them. After all, I've tried baggy jeans, and bootcut and any other cut over the years, and skinny jeans, in my opinion, look good with more of my clothes and don't feel half as tight as they look. Probably the stretchy denim they use.

There's probably more, I've got a lot of hate but I reckon that's enough for now.

Edit - I never realised that motorsports was the B3tan's sport of choice, but I seemed to have hit a nerve over it. I probably should have guessed though, as it involves sitting down for a long time.

skinny jeans
are the uniform of hipster wannabe shits waiting for mummy or daddy's next cheque while they pretend to be cool and aloof by bitching about the world and everything in on and under it. Don't admit to that, man.

Last time I checked I was pretty poor, living off my own back. Not everyone who wears skinny jeans is a poser. I know the kind of people you're talking about, and that's not me mate.

Motor sports
Hmm. Not atheletes? Would you like to try cornering forces of up to 6Gs, temperatures of 40 degrees plus and the necessity of having reactions like a hummingbird on speed?

No thanks
I'm too busy playing a real sport like football, but I did drive to the field, so that's two sports in one isn't it?

'Real sport like football'

Because running for 90 minutes isn't a sport but driving for 90 minutes is?

Says any F1 driver in the world is a damn sight fitter than yourself.
(, Mon 19 Oct 2009, 18:48, closed)
Yeah, they'll be fitter
But not from what they do in a car mate (probably from shagging supermodels, daily), and not by a lot. I play football about 3 times a week and surf every day(I'm shit at it, but all that swimming back to the board starts to pay dividends after a while) . Perhaps we should just agree to disagree

Footballers run for 90 minutes?
If they do, then they're obviously not very good.

If you're looking at the best footballers and comparing them with the drivers in F1, then I reckon that all F1 drivers could play a full 90 minutes plus extra time without too much of a problem (apart from some being a bit crap maybe) whereas a footballer would struggle after doing a few laps in a proper race kart.

Not very good?
How are they not very good if they run for 90 minutes?
(, Tue 20 Oct 2009, 1:06, closed)
I thought it was a team sport
so they should be passing the ball and not running all the time. No doubt about it, they're fitter than I'll ever be but you'd never convince me that the top players are fitter than the F1 drivers.

This is unlikely to convince you but take a look: www.stableroad.com/videos/f1fitness500.htm

Everything except
...Motorsports. Not only is it fucking hard work, I don't see olympic runners running round the side of a cliff at 200mph. Check YouTube for "Climb Dance" for god-like skills.

I agree a lot of motorpsorts (=F1) on TV is boring, this weekend's GP excepted for a change.

what I'm saying is, they're not athletes. I'll admit there's a skill involved, but at the end of the day, they're win a race because they're car/bike was faster than the rest
(, Mon 19 Oct 2009, 17:22, closed)
They do have to be pretty fit to take the cornering for a whole race.

I agree with you about babies
the same with toddlers, why do people feel the need to show off their kids? they just leave me cold.

Sitting down
Ha ha, good one mate!
