Things You Want To Go Away In 2015

Thu Dec 25, 2014 1:09 am

It's that time again! Something tells me this year's thread is going to get some good hits/replies.
2014 for me at least has been anything but a stellar year. It seems for way too many people have endured a devastating/catastrophic year. For me, 2014 can't end soon enough here's to a much happier year for all of us. We've earned it after 2014. Of course I want the obvious things like cruelty to animals/fellow man, devastating disease, poverty, racisism/discrimination. So, without further ado I'll kick off my things/stuff I'd like to see go away in 2015.
  • Let It Go (Frozen). Has to be one of my worst all time songs. In the leage of Who Let the Dogs Out, Mambo #5. Come to think of it more in the bottom hell musically of You Light up My Life and They're Coming To Take Me Away and anything Helen Reddy.
  • Niki Minaj, Iggy Azaela, Scarlet Johansen, 1 Direction
  • North Korea and it's nefarious dictator.
  • Isis and Ebola
  • The Kartrashians. Let Kim and her enhanced hemmhroid butt finally go away for good.
  • This year's Christmas commercials.
  • Hipsters
  • All the Loser TV judge shows, Judge Judy etc.
  • Most reality programming.
  • Armanda Montalago, Nick Fertucci and the rest of their fly by night ilk, the get rich quick by house flipping, I'd rather flip them off.
  • The dogmatic fundamentalist of the various religions.
  • Government inefficiency and gridlock
  • Globalists
  • Elitists
  • Christmas Creep, no decorations, sales, merchandising, displays till day after Thanksgiving
  • Extended Black Friday's. Let people be with their families on Turkey Day. That made in China gee gaw on sale can wait a day.
  • Automated phone trees (dial 1 for English, 2 for Spanish, 666 for I'm having a panic attack.
  • Sense of entitlement
  • bullying
  • Political Correctness A growing cancer on our expression and dealing with others.

More to come let's hear yours.

I will add to that list people who are unable to understand proper usage of pronouns. I cringe every time I hear a supposedly educated person say something such as "Me and my wife..." etc.

Also, the GM cars that have the reverse lights that come on when someone puts the vehicle on park or turns off the alarm.

Camaros and Corvettes, the ugliest pieces of crap on the road today.

No, you don't have to be a-holes to others. But, when PC BS gets out of hand you are supressing speach and expression. Today, at least in the USA comics need a lawyer as everything is offensive. You see someone or something suspicious and report it, you are accused of stereotyping and being offensive. Banning saying ho ho ho at Christmas, banning the term sitting Indian style to kids. The PC police demanding the Redskins change their name. Personally I don't care about DC's team but it's gotten out of hand. Banning Sweet Home Alabama in New York or somewhere in the Northeast. PC overkill makes many turn inward which in the end results in more violence and offensive behavior.

Banning saying ho ho ho at Christmas,

Apparently, that's an old urban myth: Has Ho, Ho, Ho Been Banned?

Quote:
Last month a rumor began to circulate alleging that Santas were being banned from saying "Ho, Ho, Ho" because "Ho" is a slang term for a prostitute. As is often the case with such rumors, there was an event that triggered the rumor, but that event had been twisted and blown out of proportion in the course of being repeated.

What really happened was that Westaff, a firm in Australia that trains Santas for appearances in shopping malls, had cautioned its trainees that many small children are initially scared by Santa. So they told the Santas-in-training "to try techniques such as lowering their tone of voice and using 'ha, ha, ha' to encourage the children to come forward and meet Santa." They never banned their Santas from Ho, Ho, Ho-ing.

Westaff's words of caution transformed into the Ho-Ho-Ho-Banned rumor. And as the rumor spread details were added, such as a claim that two Santa trainees had quit the course in disgust.

(from 2007)

People that walk slow or stop randomly while walking. There are driving tests and flying tests etc, there should be a comprehensive walking test. If you are unable to keep a suitable pace (determined by me) unable to give proper notification to other people before stopping or changing direction and don't understand the idea of proper space utilization you should be deemed unworthy to walk and not be given a license. If you fail any part of the 3 part theory exam or the practical which will be invigulated by 3 testers, you will not be allowed to walk until you can resit the test which is once every 3 years.
I'm sure this thread will take off soon

Ignorance.

May those that put voice to opinion or pen to paper in order to shape policy or pen legislation do so after educating themselves on the topic. And, may those that hold ultimate power (that would be us) also take the time to educate ourselves so that we may make decisions based on knowledge and fact.

Alone the same vein:

May our legislators legislate using reason and logic legislating. While the deliberation should not be devoid of emotion, the emotions should be tempered with logic and education.

Sounds more like a blessing than a grievance, but there you have it.

And, since I'm asking for the impossible:

Cross over CUVs

  

My list:
-Political extremists; Whether it be at the far right (Tea Party) or the far left (Communism), these groups only make matters worse in politics
-Racism; Its 2014. We're all human, we're all on this plant together. We should make the best of it, because someday the human race won't exist (sorry to be a debby downer on that last part).
-Crappy pop songs; I used to listen to mainstream radio, but the songs just get worse and worse (e.g. Shake it Off by Taylor Swift)
-Federal government not doing squat to change things for the better. All talk and whining, but nothing getting done.
-Suburban sprawl; At least here in the U.S., its disturbing how much land we take up in metropolitan regions.
-Crappy commercials; Especially the ones with an annoying woman speaking in a soft voice in order to manipulate us into buying their product or service (I'm looking at you Walmart), or the ones that pluck at our heartstrings or somehow try to manipulate our emotions.
-Speaking of Walmart...  
-SUVs/CUVs; Almost all of them are just really ugly, uneconomical, space wasting pieces of scrap metal (and plastic)
-Dependence on fossil fuels for our vehicles
-Hostility around the world, particularly in the Middle East
-Liberals who want to force people to take public transit, consisting of slow as f*ck light rail and bus (this is a local problem)
-Conservatives who believe that if we just improve and widen our roadways then traffic congestion will disappear (also a local problem)
-Political parties (George Washington warned us)
-Twitter; useless social media tool
-My depression and anxiety; maybe someday
-Bullying
-NIMBYs
-Fox News

I'm sure I'll think of more later.

Black Friday to go back across the Atlantic, here the retailers are just waking up to what a crap idea it is having endorsed it with great enthusiasm.

Yeah we got it too this year, totally ridiculous since there is obviously no Thanksgiving and people don't know what either things are.

This, this, a thousand times this. I've decided that bitcoin is the behavioral opposite of Fight Club, in that the first rule of bitcoin is apparently that you never shut the fuck up about bitcoin.

Mee too but I think that ship has sailed now. With Thanksgiving being so late this year (one day short of the latest possible day it could fall on) retailers felt the need to jump-start the Christmas shopping season. Now that they've done it once, I think there's no going back. You wouldn't catch me anywhere near a store on Thanksgiving night or Black Friday.

On a whole 2014 has been a forgettable year too. Here's hoping next year will be much much much better

I'l get in trouble for this but anyway it is not personal but Taylor Swift's ubiquitous overplay of her music in the supermarkets, in the malls and in almost every radio station and also her seemingly contrived friendships with other celebrities and her contrived "enemies list" she had made of Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry and who knows what.

Miley Cyrus; not sexy, not empowering, just a flaming mess and in need of help. Crap music.

Kardashians

Rabid partisanship in America, not every little thing has to be placed in a liberal-conservative orientation.

Justin Bieber; teens love him blindly, supermodels date him, 60 million Twitter followers, no hit in years, gets a "G6."

Selena Gomez; still loves Bieber though he cheats on her and is a habitual criminal. I'm sure Bieber's "G6" will have Selena "flying" back. Crap music.

Getting a red light at every intersection.

Bad driving habits; excessive honking, slow driving, daydreaming at the light, does not go on green, people who don't slow down when you signal for a turn, driving with the headlights off when it's nighttime or when its raining, and people taking two or three lanes parking a car or truck.

When any little rain in the local news is "The storm of 2014," and general news media sensationalism of "breaking news" every five minutes.

Presently in London, many big regent street stores open until 10pm on boxing day, others routinely open until midnight. The world has gone mad.

I like Taylor Swift for her long legs, she likes to show them also Katy Perry for her long sexy stems. However both of their voices are like fingernails across a blackboard.

THE MYSTERY about where that aircraft (MH370) is. Will 2015 be the year that they, someone, anyone, will locate the aircraft, 9M-MRO and the 239 people that were on board.

Too short jail sentences for violent criminals.
