OK, let's hear it. Little annoying things in life. Here is one:

Do you ever wonder why, on the credits at the end, the year a movie is made is always shown in roman numerals instead of normal numbers?

Roman numerals are cool and there is good math associated with them. For example, half of twelve is seven.

XII = 12

VII = 7

Of course the remaining hand doesn't equal anything.

People never describe a tornado as sounding like a passenger train?

It's always a freight train.

They need to trim down the model range too. Are the Monte Carlo, Impala, AND Malibu all really necessary (and that's just Chevrolet!!)?

Quoting Mir (Reply 7):
We drive on parkways

The original 'parkways' were roads built through New York City's many "park" areas, for which the name was adopted from. These roads tended to have a higher level of greenery and landscaping around them that a standard limited-access highway. That's not necessarily the case now.

That pisses me off so much. Like the kid sits there all year in class, never does a bit of work, and he bitches about how he hates the teacher because she failed him. He failed himself, she was just the person who told him that he failed.

There are two possible theories to this:

1. Founder Dave Thomas didn't believe in cutting corners. Or
2. Same man believed in giving you a "square deal".

HOLD IT DUDE!!! I once got a BIG FAT "F" in English during my senior year in HS. My parents were pissed off beyond belief.

I told them: "....the teach must have it in for me". Admittely I had back talked to her a couple of times, but I had done all my work for the class.

Mom & Dad did not believe me. They took my wheels, grounded me, and I could not go out with the girlfriend for the rest of the quarter.

Next quarter I got an "A".

Please explain to me how one can go from an "F" to an "A" in one quarter???
