» Urban Legends

Yes, the ones out of Back To The Future 2. I was adamant that they were real, especially after watching the "Making of..." documentary that showed people buying them from shops. In fact this is something that I felt I had to bring up at a discussion about the trilogy whilst at work.

It's still brought up on occasion whenever people around the office need a good laugh.

The only saving grace is that one guy admitted that I went on about for so long that he almost believed it to be true!

I well up..........
At emotional bits in films. When Mufasa dies in the Lion King, when Adrian wakes from her coma in Rocky 2 (mind you, for some reason Rocky's almost untelligible speech at the end is also one).

Air guitar......
I don't even have to be tanked up on alcohol to do it. Being tanked up on alcohol makes it more fun though, especially when you're in a nightclub drawing far too much attention to yourself, but then I don't care, don't give a monkeys!

» I just don't get it

Funnily enough I am a Christian. My experience of a Christian wedding was just that and also a friend of mine, though admittedly he is anti-religious in a major way, went to a Christian wedding and found everyone on J2O for the whole evening.

Sure, I made a generalisation, but one based on experience, as most of these posts are......

What I don't understand is some people's lack of tolerance for other people's opinions.

What's that I see? A can of worms opening?

For the love of God!
Audi TT's: They're just VW Golf's in a different dress for people who can't afford a proper sports car and are willing to spend £100 on shirt which you can't tell that it looks any different from the much cheaper version that was brought at a Debenham's sale!

Cujones: Undersized chicken nuggets! Miniture food in general really!

People who smoke 20 a day but refuse to eat a Big Mac after they find out what goes into it!

Reality TV: Big Brother. The Surreal Life. The Farm. Reality TV channel, remember that one? When will it stop?

Filling the 2 entire levels of a multistorey carpark with disabled spaces. They're near the exit to shopping centre, but not one of them is on ground floor!

Wired magazine: Every article proclaims that something or other is the next big thing or this time next year all be using such and such!

Jungle music/Drum and Bass. It's just noise made by pressing a button on the drum machine!

The Sims: I cannot understand what is so fun or great about controlling the live's of a family on a computer.

Christian weddings. Not a drop of alcohol and only a finger buffet and muffins for afters!

Everybody Love Raymond: Who? Who love Raymond. He's not funny. Also he sounds like he could use some Vicks.

Piercings: Anywhere other than the ear seems odd and what about the one's where the guy can stick a 2 inch disc through his lobe? WTF!?!?!?

£100 pounds for a pair of football boots? Are you kidding? Are you a better footballer because you're wearing them? The answer is no!

Songs with so much swearing in them that every other word is blanked? Don't Want You Back by Eamon? Why play them in the first place?

Managers using terms like Blue Sky Thinking and giving you KPI's and competency based assessments, blah blah blah. It keeps someone in HR in a job at least.

Mobile phones that are so small only a child could use. In fact 4 year old with mobile phones, why oh why?

Hello magazine: Do you have nothing better to do than look at photos of minor celebrities on holiday!

Oxfam: About 20p in every pound goes to charity and all the execs drive flash and cars and work in a flash building. Not my definition of charity, mate!

IPod's: Why pay so much for something like that when you can get something just as good for half the price. Oh yeah, it's that style thing.

There are so so many..................
