RE: Haters Lounge
The reality that at least 90% of young children can no longer play outside without a near unending cacophony of "I'm being abducted or murdered" level screaming and yelling. Good fucking God is there anything more annoying these days than when kids go outside to play? Could just be the shitty place I'm currently living but I've yet to come across children playing without the constant screaming and noise making. When I was a kid I never felt the autistic ADHD kind of need to be a squelching brat. Somehow when I was a kid we found a way to play without summoning a blood god. Seriously, whenever I hear a kid scream these days I just blow it off assuming they're overwhelmed being outside and apart from their iPads.

This is one of the things that really makes me think something is fucked up in the upbringing process of kids these days. Food, iPad addiction, something in the water, I don't know. It feels like we're going to be experiencing a massive wave of autism, Aspergers, ADHD, and a variety of other mental problems when these current young child generation comes of age. They just reek of totally messed up brains from fucked up food and having electronic screens shoved in their faces before they could even talk and some of the most abysmal parenting probably in human history by modern adults. Maybe it's just me, maybe it's where I live, could be purely anecdotal, don't know. But it's fucking annoying.

Children play outside a lot in my mid-priced suburb near Denver.

It turns out I hate, fucking hate people that seem to think that if you want to sleep though the night and wake up at a reasonable time then you should put your phone on silent. As if mobile phones having alterable ring-tones and volumes therein alleviates any responsibility to follow basic protocol and common sense in determining when it's polite to call or message someone.

Case in point. I get a message from a cunt with whom I barely associate about a matter that is not time sensitive in the least at 6:30 in the morning.

Bitch, it's 6:30 in the morning and I have kids. One of them is sick. I'd just gotten him back to sleep when your fucking message came through and woke him the fuck up again. Are you fucking serious?

I send her a somewhat more polite version of my situation.

She replies, not an hour or two later but ten fucking minutes. Get this:

"Sorry. I just assume that people put their phone on silent if they're busy."

Bitch, are you for fucking real? I have a wife that drives 90 minutes home from a night shift and I'd like to be able to receive a call if she crashes or breaks down on the way, so I leave my phone on loud so I can receive important calls and messages because those are the only fucking kind anyone should be sending at that hour of the fucking morning!

But do I want to get into it with this bitch? No fucking point, right? Best to just ignore her reply and set the hamster going until next time she sees me.

I understand the need to hear a phone for emergencies...but if it's so loud that it wakes your kid up, maybe you should 1) bring the phone closer to you/turn down the volume, 2) turn it down a bit when you have a sick kid, or 3) some combination of the above...

Otherwise I don't see much of an issue with a 6:30 text (and holy shit, how loud/obnoxious is your text notification that it wakes someone up?)

So far I've disagreed with everything ChrisGaines has posted.

RE: Haters Lounge
I hate my local newspaper so much. It's the Buffalo News in Buffalo, NY.

The reason is they keep endorsing the politicians who ran the city into the ground. They think putting food trucks in the city recently is cool when it was being done a decade before in other major cities in the US. They give their endorsements out and put out scaremongering articles about civil rights being turned back and ethnic cleansing happening if anyone but a Democrat got elected in Buffalo, NY. The partisan and bias is so obvious you'd see it if you whacked you in the head with a 2X4.

Sometimes, even the progressive alternate newspaper call them out on the BS despite thinking like a Sith like how Democrats are only corporate whores and Republicans are Nazis and they're different from everyone.

I hate our sports teams too because they keep on sucking and fumbling every goddamn time. The Bills two decades ago went to the Super Bowl 4 times and lost all of them. The Sabres are meh.

Buffalo is a good decade behind cities like San Diego, NYC and Seattle.

I hate running into my old crew and seeing their thirst.

Just reminds me of how things have changed and how most of those guys haven't.

For example, tonight, one guys top line to a gal (pinup type in a skintight cheetah dress, a bit chubby but kinda cute) was "your ass looks nice in that dress". Straightforward game works best with tact/restraint.

Oh the awkwardness... I left after two drinks.
Couldn't stand seeing four grown men drooling/trying-to-outdo-eachother over one pinup gal.

Friend: I got in a fight with my girlfriend.
Sam: What was it about? You guys fighting over money?
Friend: I was talking to her while I was unpacking the groceries, and she thought I was staring into the shopping bags when I should've been talking to her.
Sam: ????
Friend: She thought I was ignoring her.
Sam: Were you?
Friend: No, but she's got a lot of problems. Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder.
Sam: DRAMA.
Friend: That's just what a relationship is.

Man, why do people date these creatures?

RE: Haters Lounge
I hate it when people who are otherwise intelligent and decent and should know better adopt a phoney moral equivalence about anything remotely controversial. You try to talk to them about something important in current events, political philosophy, economics, civics, whatever, and their kneejerk response is to find some opposite example and claim "well X does it too, so you can't judge Y for doing the exact identical equal same thing".

Not talking about partisans who engage in tu quoque arguments to defend their side, but the people who think that never taking sides or making a moral choice about anything is somehow taking the high road and keeping themselves above the fray. Or who think that adopting a pose of unshakeable impartiality on every matter makes them morally superior to the rubes and fools who take sides. It's not about thinking but demonstrating to others what they think is superior moral and intellectual virtue.

Me: "Man, these lefty people have gone crazy since Trump was elected."
Him: "Yeah, but don't forget the Tea Party! They were exactly equally just the same crazy when Obama was elected. They were doing exactly the same things. You can't judge one side without judging both, when they're doing the same exact identical equal things like that."

Me: "Man, that Bill Nye is a nutjob."
Her: "Yeah, but don't forget Creationists! At least he goes after them! They're just as equally identically just the same crazy as he is. You can't judge one side without judging both, when they're doing the same exact identical equal things like that."

There is never an acknowledgement with these people that the case you raise is worth considering on its own merits. It just never is. There is never a problem or an issue or a topic that's worth discussing in detail in and of itself, without resort to some contrived, contorted, usually ludicrous moral equivalence. They are determined to not merely sit on the fence on everything, but to death-grip it with their buttcheeks so hard that they crap splinters and sawdust.
