Things You Want To Go Away In 2013

Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:15 am

Happy New Year! to all of us. Can't believe it's that time of year again. Time for my annual thread on people, places, things, issues or whatever else you want to go away in 2013. Of course my disclaimer: I don't want any of these people to suffer anything bad. And of course, I want crimes against animals, humanity, disease, pain and suffering to go away in 2013 and beyond. So without further ado I open up this thread.

First, though they literally define 2012 and can get on one's nerves; I'll give Honey Boo Boo and Psi another year in the limelight. Honey Boo Boo demonstrates what a diet of Mac and Cheese and Nutella can do. And with Psi at least his videos features lithe scantily clad hot Asian chick dancers. Give them each another year for their fame.

Now for what I want to go away in 2013 in no particular order...

Justin Bieber: His voice may have changed but he still sucks talent wise and come across as a jackass
Nikki Minaj: Her music sucks and she looks like she stuck her finger in a live electrical outlet.
Ke$ha: Are we that masochistic that we put up with her?
The Kartrashians: Their butts grow with their ego as their talent and worth go south!
Taylor Swift: She's leggy and hot in an anorexic sort of way but I can't stand her music.
The Presidents of Iran, Syria and Egypt
The Fiscal Cliff
Michael Vic
A-Rod
Oprah Winfrey
Tom Cruise
Church of Scientology
All the mass shootings: Caused way too many deaths and suffering and our media promotes these wing-nuts who go out and commit these massacres.
Westbrook Baptist Church: Like Scientology, for those who sincerely believe in them fine but their notoriety promotes them.
Ryan Seacrest: Let's Hope OUT for good!
Beyonce
A-Rod
Obscene Black Friday sales that start earlier than black Friday
Animal abusers
Wacky extreme weather
95% of Reality TV shows and for that matter crappy shows like Partners and Made In Jersey
and She's British, not that there's anything wrong with that but there are plenty of actresses stateside that can affect a Jersey accent. But the only thing positive about this turkey which flamed out after three episodes was the fact she has great legs but the show was a joke!

More to come! Time to hear your ideas

My wish list:

*Children/infants in First Class
*Children/infants in Business Class
*Passengers that call instead of text "I've just landed. blah blah blah."
*Mobile phones in airline lounges
*Mobile phones in restaurants
*Bad salad dressing on airplanes
*Liquid restriction for cabin baggage
*Bad catering
*Kim Dynasty in North Korea
*Low-cost carriers
*Canned tuna sold on buy-on-board snack boxes
*Menus that insult you with "teriyaki BEEF or hibachi CHICKEN" on a Narita - Los Angeles flight. Why bother with menus at this type of flight?
*Passengers that do not take care with personal hygiene
*Passengers that bring fried food onboard airplanes and then consume these greasy, salty items, touch the seat armrest, etc, and don't wash their hands! EEEEEEEEEEK!!!!!!
*Poorly-dressed, poorly-groomed business travelers. (It's like seeing an incubus of the viral plague in the form of a human being)
*Snakes
Do you lead an Intercontinental life?

Let's see...here's a wish list in no particular order:

-Fiscal Cliff
-Tea Party and/or extremists
-Netanyahu's coalition (replaced by a more moderate one)
-Bashar Al-Assad
-The Iranian Regime
-The Egyptian Regime
-Al Qaeda and the Taliban
-Robert Mugabe
-Hamas
-Kim Dynasty in North Korea (replaced by a truly democratic government)
-The Middle East conflict
-High oil and food prices (seems every day everything's getting more expensive)
-Weakness in US economy
-High unemployment
-Crappy autotuned music (Ke$ha, Nikki Minaj, Pitbull, etc.)
-Reggaeton (ugh...just...ugh)
-Reality shows (Toddlers and Tiaras, Jersey Shore (thank goodness it's been cancelled), Teen Mom, etc.) That's not to say that ALL shows should end. I enjoy Shipping Wars, Storage Wars on A&E, and Airport 24/7: Miami on the Travel Channel.
-Intrusion of people into the lives of others (like those who advocate smaller government because government shouldn't control people's lives but want to pass bans on abortions and same sex marriage)
-INSTAGRAM!!...man that's annoying.
-Extreme temperatures (that's not to say extreme weather...I LOVE that)
-Corruption in our local government (they claim there's no money, but amazingly find millions stashed to refurbish their offices with 3 restrooms and spend on lavish dinners)
-Incurable diseases, poverty, and famine.

All for a more happy world.

Cancer.

There are countless diseases that destroy the lives of countless families, but I think cancer will unfortunately keep affecting more and more people at an increasingly younger age. It is the disease of this century.

   I predict Bieber will come out in the next few years. Sad for the LGTB folk. Bieber is an obnoxious no talent snot. I feel sorry for his mother. She's a MILF and actually seems cool. I hope at least she can be financially set and comfortable from her son's lack of talent that Sheeple endorse.

Regarding Minaj. what's one man's meat is another's.... Maybe it's my age. (56 years young). I was blessed to grow up with the musical greats of the 1960's and yes even some of the 1970's artists. They have, are and always will fly rings around the crap that's today's talent. Lady Gaga went through a lot of sh*t and though I dislike her music I like her as a person. Minaj demonstrates how one of my favorite genre's of music R&B has eroded to less than zero!

Other things I hope go ba bye in 2013:

  • Fast and furious
  • The Twilight Craze
  • Entertainment media's endorsement of unmarried pregnancies
  • Over Hype of March Madness
  • Over Hype of all the vapid awards shows
  • The Taliban, Ha mas, Hezbollah
  • End of the World Fear Factor
  • Inattention of protecting and strengthening our power grid
  • The Jackson Family
  • Elevation of Whitney Houston to sainthood. I'm sorry for her families tragic loss nobody should have to suffer this but
    at least in my opinion her music and talent were at best mediocre at worst annoying and the beginning of the decline
    of R & B. You want high quality R & B, look to Aretha Franklin and her underrated, under appreciated aunt Dionne
    Warwick.
  • The dominance of New York and Boston area teams in the NFL and MLB for at least 2013.
  • I Phone this, I Phone that. For that matter Apple always in the news. Enough already!
  • The overpopulation of phone and I Pod commercials on TV, especially during NFL games.
  • Rap/Hip Hop
  • The cow who does that weird neck tilt on Dance Moms. She looks like the last person on this Earth involved in dance.
    She dances from the couch to the fridge for an abundant luau of food! The show though is a hoot for reality shows.
  • Kirsti Alley competing on any reality show involving dance or fitness.
  • The Biggest Loser
  • America's Funniest Videos: Never seems to want to ride off into the sunset
  • Big asses ugly SUV's
  • The ugly design of the Toyota Prius all models.
  • Jessica Simpson (unless she can stop getting knocked up and can get back into Daisy Duke hotness) Sadly she lacks talent otherwise.

The 'creep' of major holidays months before they occur.

Agree with this! I'd enjoy Christmas alot more if it didn't begin in early November...

My list of things that come to mind;

-Food that's given an upmarket name to justify the price when in fact they're just trying to save money. I.e. "Open sandwich". It's not a sandwich then is it, just put one more piece of damn bread on top and stop being so pretentious.
-Commercials/adverts on TV for trivial items that make it sound like their product/service is life changing and the root of happiness in everyones lives.
-Religion
-Early mornings
-Inflation
-Glorification of people who have absolutely nothing to be glorified for
-People that take photos/videos with iPads
-The majority of music that's played on the radio
-Nationalities that think the world revolves around them
-People that take nights out in their local grotty club so seriously
-Paco Rabanne 1 million for men
-Gullible people (though sometime's it can be entertaining)
-Jobsworths
-Sense of humour failures
-People that feel the need to share how crap their life is all over facebook

It's been an early morning and I'm grouchy as a result

Those aren't moths, they are crows.  


1) TAKE UP SPACE WALL STREETers. Also known as Occupy idiots. Started out good and then they let "them" in.
2) Animal abusers. Lop off the perps head.
3) Child molesters. Just execute them and be done with it.
4) Child killers. Again. Just execute them and be done with it.
5) Rapists. Do I need to say it again?
6) Drunk drivers. Incarcerate them for 1 year the first time. Forever the second time. And if they happen to get out on a technicality or a dumbass judge, and are stupid enough to do it a third time, follow the steps for items 2, 3, 4 and 5 above.
7) Beiber, Minaj, Rihanna, Taylor, Bobby Brown, Tebow, Kartrashians (celebrities in general).
8) The words viral, baby bump and organic should never be used in any form again.
9) People that insist on spreading pictures of their pregnant wives belly all over the place.
10) Pictures of babies right out of the womb. You might think since it's yours that everyone wants to see it, WRONG!!!
11) Charitable organizations who have more than 3% of their donations go to something other than the people the money was intended for.
12) Reality TV. 100% of it.
13) People who insist on doing the speed limit in the fast lane.
14) Infomercials. People actually fall for this crap.
15) People that fall for infomercials. If they weren't around, maybe the infomercials would go away.
16) News organizations who think they are the greatest things since sliced bread. (Local and National. International too probably but I don't care about them).
17) Cancer,
18) Alzheimers and any other mental disease.

The year is not even a day old and I may be getting my wish! I don't go clubbing as often as I used to, but I always make a point of heading out on New Year's Eve, and this year I got a nice surprise. Sometimes change happens slowly, and other times it creeps up without you noticing until WHAM! . . . . it hits you in the face.

What am I talking about? Nothing particularly important, in the grand scale of things, possibly (and hopefully) one of those periodic fashion changes that make life that little more pleasant. I went to one bar and one club, and for the first time in what must be a decade, didn't see ONE SINGLE guy wearing what must be the most awful jeans/trouser craze since the 1970s . . .



New Year 2013 and not a single pair of skinny or low-slung jeans in sight . . . WOOHOO!

6) Drunk drivers. Incarcerate them for 1 year the first time. Forever the second time. And if they happen to get out on a technicality or a dumbass judge, and are stupid enough to do it a third time, follow the steps for items 2, 3, 4 and 5 above.
7) Beiber, Minaj, Rihanna, Taylor, Bobby Brown, Tebow, Kartrashians (celebrities in general).
8) The words viral, baby bump and organic should never be used in any form again.
9) People that insist on spreading pictures of their pregnant wives belly all over the place.
10) Pictures of babies right out of the womb. You might think since it's yours that everyone wants to see it, WRONG!!!
11) Charitable organizations who have more than 3% of their donations go to something other than the people the money was intended for.
12) Reality TV. 100% of it.
13) People who insist on doing the speed limit in the fast lane.
14) Infomercials. People actually fall for this crap.
15) People that fall for infomercials. If they weren't around, maybe the infomercials would go away.
16) News organizations who think they are the greatest things since sliced bread. (Local and National. International too probably but I don't care about them).
17) Cancer,
18) Alzheimers and any other mental disease.

They should all be fired and forced to find real jobs so they could figure out what it means to live within a budget and make sacrifices. And I am a Republican!

Interesting! There are some current trends here. Almost all of us have listed besides the obvious death, disease and destruction: Justin Bieber, Niki Minaj and most of the other pop crap.
Some other things I forgot:
  • My never ending ADHD
  • My hypersomnia
  • My hippo girth
  • My frequent colds and sinus infections (working at the airport is ground zero for germs)
  • One Direction- These boy bands got to go.
  • Today's so called music (I missed the ball dropping into Time's Square because the sh*t acts were so bad I couldn't stand it any longer. I ended up watching Abbey Lee the Dance Mom plus sized queen's top OMG moments and got a kick out of it.) I can't believe how far we've devolved when it comes to our current music. They all sound like they came off the same assembly line that processes the pink slime that makes Mc. Nuggets, Nutella and Velveeta! As long as you have that twink look (boy bands) and for the women as long as you have a decent pair of legs and like to have wardrobe malfunctions then you too can be a musical star in today's Poop Culture! Technology can alter and change the vocal quality but it's still Godawful. And the music sounds like fluff that could have come out of the old snakepit mental hospitals! And R&B? Has hit the skids as bad. What was once a promising genre with some classic artists and music is not gibberish rap crap or overproduced synth music like much of the late Whitney Houston's. She had a beautiful voice but the stuff she sang is almost as horrid as the Velveeta crap of today's pop tarts. The Bodyguard,
    Endless Love and The Greatest Love or whatever the title was the beginning of the irreversible slide into mundane crap.
    However to end on an up note there is that 5% of music that still demonstrates there's quality and heart out there. Adelle and Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings are the oasis in this vast wasteland of corporate rock pop.


Regarding Amy Poehler, she's a hottie but I still can't stand the show. NBC has a thing about re-doing British humor shows in the states and I for one do not find them funny. No offense to my friends across the pond!

Right on !    And as for bands, the Tedeschi Trucks Band kicks ass. Outstanding blues and soul, and they can rock when they want to.

Don't know about her being hot, but she is crazy like a loon.

Some mentions in this thread I totally agree with, they need to go away:

Bieber (and I'm Canadian). Please !
Grover Norquist (let him run for elected office, then he can talk)
Bibi
Bettman and Fehr, consigned to one of the nether regions


I'd also add:

"The crawl" across the bottom of your TV screen. Totally annoying.
The twitterverse. Never used it, never will.
Shamwow
And other direct marketed TV products/services. Esp. the ones offering cash for gold. What a swindle.
Most commercial radio pop music. Especially hip-hop. My house is a hip-hop free zone.
Wolfgang Blitzkrieg

Others will come to me I'm sure, and other contributors will identify several them.

Have you seen what Warren Buffett is suggesting for Congress ? Minimum wage, part time, one term & out, anyone elected MUST pass an IQ test before being seated, (and a bunch of other GOOD ideas !)

My additions;

people who always scream that other people's sources are "crap", "unreliable", but never bother giving any of their own

completely unreasonable Pennsylvania State Cops that pull over law-abiding citizens and harass them for 30 minutes, THEN give them the ticket.

All State Cops who are 7 feet tall or taller; (what is this, a retirement home for former NBA schlepps ?)

Bashar Assad (sp?)

Any architect attempting to design yet another "sky scraper" taller that Burj Khaliffa (someday, some poor schmuck's gonna have to risk his butt tearing the thing down ! )

Funny that you keep complaining about this, but you never go back and reread the responses to your posts that show how unreliable they are. your recent posts are always blogs that have links to the real data and you never even go read them to see how unreliable your source article is.

So there is what I want to get rid of. People that don't fact check their own sources when they are quoting other source material.

One thing I'd love to say goodbye to this year is depression and suicidal tendency.

It's precisely one year since my last crisis, and it's a very important milestone for me. Am feeling optimistic, which is already a vast improvement on the beginning of last year. I wouuld also put a shout out for the end of being single, but then although it may seem selfish, this year for the time being has to be about looking after me first and foremost. The rest can follow later.

Happy new year to you all.

Despite Geezers wish that Liberals and Democrats would go away I do not wish the same on Geezer because I'm a liberal.

I do wish however the hyper partisanship in Washington and in American spectral which is mostly initiated by the right would go away. G.M. Chrysler we get more divided every year, we cant live in an America that thinks half if it's citizens/people/whatever are sons-of-bitches like we do now. Americans need more nuance in our views not just all good, bad, right, wrong, black, white, us, them. I don't apologize for being PHX787's friend and I know he respects me too.

Let's commit to more education, understanding, and a little lass animosity in our society.

I agree, and, in my country,commit to that, brother.

I disagree with many positions of the GOP, but they are not without honour, so I therefore will try to understand all the various positions. The Dems are not without they're issues, I'll live with them.

No this isn't selfish. You cannot take care of others properly if yourself are not in good standing with your own life and the world so there is nothing wrong with thinking about you in first place.

There are some great motivational speakers videos on Youtube. This man Les Brown is really great. He will lift up your spirit and your mind too. These are just two of his videos - there are many more. I like Jim Rohn too.

It's all out there for you for free. People pay a lot of money for these talks/seminars.

Will certainly take a peek. It's difficult when you feel a settled relationship is the one thing missing in your life, but I guess it's about priorities. What is also upsetting is that finding a longterm partner and having a family was the main goal in life for me, and the last few years have put a huge dent in that, to the extent that I feel so hurt by events that I'm not sure I even want that anymore. It'll probably just take time. First step back on that road is continuing to get myself sorted, so that's the plan for now. And you're right - there are certainly a lot of good people out there, I owe my life to many of them. The problem is, it sometimes only takes one or two bad experiences to lose total sight of that.
