Fucking unfuckable spinster-build bespectacled chicks in their early 30's.

Go in to work to help out at a different office. Tech jams up - I go to find the IT people. Ask them for directions and the fucking 'holy' 'worthy' bitches just freeze me out and keep talking to each other.

Cunts.

Got it sorted.

Half an hour later they breeze past to me into the lift all upset about "Brexit!" They're not even British..

RE: Haters Lounge
This video is why I can't stand and hate modern film critics





This is what a good chunk of them are: bought and paid for fanboys with an ax to grind. They also speak in hyperbole too much and bring up information no one gives a shit about.

Movie Slob looks like the love child of Jay Sherman from the Critic and Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons. He also supports Anita Sarkeesian so he's an automatic on my shit list.

Contemporary marketing slogans.

Lord have mercy, how infatile most of them sound.

”If I were the metro/subway, I’d go to *insert name of movie theater here*” (actual tram advert in Helsinki)

Quite clear that most slogans are not done by adults, for adults, but c’mon!

Mr. D, I would argue that it has nothing to do with "contemporary marketing slogans". It only has to do with lame slogans. And we had these from forever.

I say ”contemporary” because older slogans at least tried to pluck on the heartstrings of consumers with masculine, adult verbiage. Even if it was a product for women.

Contemporary slogans have clearly switched to feminine, childish verbiage in the vain pursuit of the largest possible consumerbase (read: women). Even on products for men.
For example, Old Spice went from ”The Mark Of A Man” to ”The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” to ”Make A Smellmitment”.

RE: Haters Lounge
Along with the above, advertising slogans appear increasingly to have been crafted by AI programmed to squeeze the maximum manipulative content into as few characters as possible.

Every ad slogan I see lately seems written in the same style as NPC memes, as if someone in the marketing department has discovered that that mock programming syntax actually delivers subliminal commands.

I hate it when person A introduces person B to person C, and person B says "It's so nice to finally meet you, I've heard all about you," and without skipping a beat, person C wittily replies "Don't believe anything he said, it's all lies! Hahaha! "

I hate to know that unboxing videos exist.

If you are reviewing a computer, speakers, a mobile phone...what makes you think people enjoy seeing you open a cardboard box?!

The millions of views the videos get are a good clue that somebody enjoys them.

Agreed. She's a boring thot and it's annoying when people talk everything she says.

RE: Haters Lounge
I'm not sure if there is a name for it, but the way news anchors speak. I call it capital letter vernacular. Because They Always Seem To Be Talking Like Every First Letter In A Word Is Capitalized And Holy Shit Is It Annoying. Or they'll be talking like normal until a key phrase comes up and suddenly it gets this dramatic enunciation and, again, it's like all the words start capitalized.

Here let me see if I can put on my best NPC programming bot impression:

"Tonight in lgbtbbq666 news a Local Mom is Speaking Out about the Culture Of Misogyny at the Pro Rape Fraternity her White Male son goes to, and how she is Advocating For Change and says we have a Long Way To Go. Local feminist experts say Something Needs To Change."

Something like that. Can't stand that shit, it's practically unlistenable . And that's aside from the whole blatant progressive bias and incredible twisting of reality and "why you should think this way" pieces.

^That's fucking incredible.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

Obviously this sort of thing is intentional, and after a million focus groups, newscasts, and advertising statistics they found this was the best way for them to talk to keep people listening and in a buying mood.

It would be interesting to see how this bizarre affectation was developed and why it has spread so widely.

It reminds me of the video of the teen in Australia who trashed his parent's house with a party and gets interviewed by a ditzy news anchor.

It is funny to listen to her because you can see her fighting with herself to keep up the fake newspeak. Her diction starts out in bogus mode, and when the teen doesn't follow her script, she kind of loses it, regains it, and loses it again.

The bone of contention being his glasses. She can't get over his glasses, and as a result we get to see the war in her soul between the professional woman and the private woman.

There's a great moment at 2:36 where she drops the act, kind of squirms in her seat, and becomes a plain old woman challenging a man.

She doesn't really recover after that.

Wow, what a fucking bitch. Definitely walk off the interview kind of attitude there.

And yeah, they all talk this way, like robots. There must be some standardized training all the media companies got together and agreed on that teaches them to speak this way. Clearly a refined product designed to implant phrases and ideas into people's heads.

Haha, that "why not?" is great, she was almost crying/begging. Her unconscious female programming couldn't compute what was happening, "but every male always does what I tell him to do, why is this kid disobeying my command? Oh, there's something alluring about him but I can't put my finger on it..."

And they're UBIQUITOUS. Idiots keep buying these in spite of comparable quality Bluetooth buds costing a third of the price.
