    I had a conversation with a co worker yesterday which is still annoying me a bit.

    Her point of view is that it feels 'too much of a coincidence' that the earth is perfect for human life. She apparently hidnt religious and claims to believe in evolution.

    I need to just put this down to the fact that she's a dickhead. She does have a tremendous rack though; nice one Jesus that's some good evolution

    I know the reasons why, and it shouldn't annoy me. But it really does seem stupid when the news reports warnings of severe weather with 10cm of snow expected. I've just returned from Turin where they're expecting 120cm tonight.
    That is weak Italian snow though. It's nothing like strong, British snow where even 1mm renders everything useless.

    Imagine we were born on Venus, we'd be fucked. But somehow we're all born on Earth, what an amazing coincidence

    A work colleague shovelling a home made curry into his gob a couple of feet from me is really starting to piss me off. Doubt he can scrape his plate more if he tried. Noisey bugger.

    Yes I realise we all need to eat, but does it have to be smelly and noisey and so much in his gob at one go. It's gross and this is a bloody office.

    Odd that I should read this and suddenly realise that my boss is doing exactly the same thing! With added sound effects. Is it too much to ask for a break without this dickhead trying to talk to me.

    "This is an interesting world I find myself in an interesting hole I find myself in fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for. "

    I'm sure its been said before, but keytones. Like. What is the point? What purpose do they serve beyond aural feedback for morons? Always some twunt on the train.

    Tack. Tack. Takakakaka as they bash "I'm on the train" into their phone.

    Yeah, keytones are a blight.

    On another note, game dialogue fucking up the timing of interruptions. Most of the time, characters suddenly stop talking because they're interrupted, and then half a second later the interrupting talk begins. Weird as fuck.

    Or sometimes, as in Skyrim's introductory execution scene, interrupting talk begins, the other character keeps talking for a second or two, first apparently ignoring it, then suddenly stopping... weird as fuck too.

    It's a DISGRACE.

    - People who don't wear belts with trousers that can accommodate belts.

    - Magnet fishermen.

    Doors with pull handles/bars but you push to open.

    Why are they there? Hate them.

    That the universal 'thank you' for letting someone through a gap in the dark is to flash your lights, blinding them for a few seconds afterwards.

    Made worse by dickheads who have ultra bright led lights.

    @kentmonkey someone once surprised me by dipping their lights as a thank you. I do so now as it seems a lot more friendly than blinding someone to say thanks.

    @Mr_Sleep I did used to do that, until they made dimming the lights more complicated on some newer cars.

    Just put a bloody 'thank you' button in each car and make it dim the lights. It's the universal acknowledgement (to flash lights), so make it easier for people to dim lights without setting off the window wipers and knocking the fig lights on.

    Fog lights that is. But I quite like fig lights so going to leave it.

    At the weekend, two teenagers decided to hold up the traffic by performing wheelies in the middle of the road, while a group of "girls" cheered them on.

    I beeped them (natch), and they both flipped me the bird.

    When did wheelies become some sort of weird mating ritual?

    Cycling through a busy pedestrianised area no handed, eating a bag of crisps and clutching a can of lager.
    Always impresses me to be fair.
