Things that have already managed to annoy me this morning

- It's "you" not "u". It's "too" not "2". It's "right" not "rite". It's "your" not "yur". It's "you're" not "your", "yur", "yu", etc.

- Google is not a stalking tool. If you have a listed number it's been available online for a long long time. So have numerous mapping services that work off of your telephone number. If someone wanted to stalk you, they would have done it already.

- Gelatin is not vegan, dammit.

- Hunter S. Thompson DID write books other than Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

- Ideology based trolls. Do it to be funny. Don't do it to shove your philosophy down someone else's throat. This is just as annoying in real life as it is in Internet world and only done because you are angry, not becuase you actually want to change someone's point of view.

- "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" means THEIR happiness not YOUR happinesss, however vile you think what makes them happy might be.

- The study ended last week. No, you will not be paid for sending in your entry *today*.

- Televison.

- Traditional name spellings (example: siobahn) = okay. "Interesting" name spellings (example: typhany) = shoot your parents.

- Popular music and the people who love it. Coldplay is NOT indie. "Indie" isn't even indie anymore. If you heard it on your local Clear Channel station IT ISN'T UNDERGROUND.

- The fact that I walked in to most of these annoying things today on my own, willingly, and kept reading, knowing it was only going to piss me off.
