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?

Some of the few...
As I'm a techy sort, I'll start the with the obvious.

PC vs Mac vs Linux, and the associated ragging.

If it works for you, then fine, use it. What I don't want to hear is how your particular choice is the best that ever was, and what ever will be. The sun does not shine out of Gates', Jobs', or Torvalds' arses. Just because you're enjoying the feeling of the balls of your chosen God slapping against your chin, then it doesn't mean that I want my turn. Windows works for me, it doesn't for others. I don't preach about how great Windows is, yet others around me take the word "Windows" to be the starting pistol for a massive fanboy attack, proclaiming everything else to be shit, and offering the previous conversationalists a turn at some major-league ball licking. Fuck off with your fanboyism, it's childish, and plainly fucking annoying.

Just... Plain... SHIT. I actually sat down and read the books to formulate my opinion on how utterly shit it is. Trashy romance for the new teens.

Edward (of Twilight): NOT A FUCKING VAMPIRE. As others mentioned, vampires suck red stuff out of necks, are bad, and explode or otherwise die in sunlight. They don't turn into a fucking Swarovsky display. Edward is a METAPHOR for how mysterious and feral boys appear to be to 15 year olds going through puberty. The writer herself admitted that making him a vampire was easy, and a sure-fire ticket to sell a metric fuckton of books (Ok, not her words, but the same effect) to today's "OMFG OCCULT SOUNDING STUFF IST KOOL, JA?" and emo fuckwits.

Rest are going to be quick.
PS3 fanboys, 360 fanboys, any fanboys. Star Wars, Star Trek, modifing cars. Watercooling freaks. Overclocking, MPs expense rowers. Newspapers. Talentless hacks being given way too much public outcry after doing essentially fuck all for anyone (I'm looking right the fuck at you Goody). Overreaction to celebrity death.

Christ, I could go on forever.

Oh there's another big one... RELIGION

Length? This was the tl;dr version, ye cheeky scroat

New Moon!
A friend just announced that she has bought 4 tickets for the new Twilight movie, almost a month before it's due out here. I don't get it.

Harry Potter, Star Wars, Batman...these I get. But why get so excited about a bunch of pussy teenage vampires covered in glitter?
