    All the little games you have to play (supposedly) to get a job annoy me: Oh, you need to have a cover letter. Oh, you can't just wear nice clothes it has to be a suit. Oh, you have to cut your hair off. Oh you need to send a thank you letter. Oh, you need to ask a lot of questions. Oh, your resume can't be more then a page long. Oh, make sure you call after you send a resume in.

    Everyone's giving you advice to that seems counter-intuitive or conflicts each other.
    Yea I find it very racist too. I live in the suburbs of West Chicago so all the minorities come over here to get a job. Knowing the state of Illinois they get hired with no job experience what so ever, hell lots of them are criminals from the hood as well. I once went to a hiring event at McDonalds and there were gang bangers everywhere. They were wearing the colors they represent. I was like **** this I don't wanna get shot. But ya, I'm not racist but in Chicago/Chicago suburbs area it's really hard for a while person to get a job. Lots of places have 60% African American, 30% Hispanic, and 10% other races. That's just how corrupt the state of Illinois is.

    Games with no checkpoints or poorly placed checkpoints are annoying. During the summer, I played Dead Space 2 and had to deal with Hard Core difficulty. The next game Aliens Vs. Predator, also had a difficulty with no checkpoints, although that one was more forgiving (you can save at the end of levels). Actually, Left 4 Dead is pretty similar to AVP's nightmare difficulty, although you can't save at the end of a level.

    Yeah, that's what I hate- it should be based off ability and nothing else. Although I can't say its happened, I'd hate to think I missed out on a job because someone else less qualified happened to be of a different race.

    That's Northern Illinois for ya. It's a hardcore liberal state. I hate to say it too, but it's the truth. It pisses me off to no end that I got job experience from my other job in Missouri and I come down here, apply for a job and some African American get's hired. It's really frustrating. I'm about to start saving all my applications. Apply online saying I'm Caucasian save it and then a couple months later fill the same application out claiming I'm African American. Do that for most places and I'll for sure get a call eventually. I'll show up for the interview get turned down for lying, go home call a lawyer, and sue the mother ****er for race discrimination. I'll have all the proof on file.

    I have my steel circles jammed by flamers/trolls/the overly sensitive/the arrogant on all video games; League of Legends and Halo in particular.

    Hey, do it man. This racist 'affirmative' action garbage has got to stop.
    And do you think that unto such as you;
    A maggot-minded, starved, fanatic crew:
    God gave the secret, and denied it me?--
    Well, well, what matters it! Believe that, too.

    You know what really grinds my gears?

    When you make plans with someone in advance only to have them cancel out days before the plan

    It happened to me today, I was really hurt by it

    Talking about endings, I don't like happy ones in anime, games and films.

    I don't know, they seem too unrealistic to me.

    Same here. I don't really know why, but I like endings which are tear-jerking or a bit of a downer. Nothing too happy. It's also to see how much sadness I can endure. So far, I've only cried to one 'sad' scene/ending/etc. Yes. I'm very lacking in the soul factor.

    Yes. If you are writing something, it shouldn't be perfect like a fairy tale. It should have tough times, and for bonus points, a sad ending.
    But you have to admit, for a part-time Nazi

    He's freaking hot.

    PETA, that animal group. They made a parody of Super Mario 3D Land, and now they've made a parody of Pokemon B2/W2...

    Oh, Tanooki. Makes sense. And let me guess, "Mario is evil! He skinned a racoon for fur! And stomps on turtles!"
    I got that before even clicking.

    same here i just got back from school ^

    what really grinds my gears is when in a pokemon game the game doesnt tell you how to move on so you have to FIND OUT YOURSELF. ie. today i had no freaking clue on how to get to dreveil city but on the bus a few miniutes ago apparently i have to battle charles to get there and i did and now im there. it took last night till now to figure that out
