I've always been annoyed by the way Google's Suggest function sanctimoniously ignores "adult" material; type in "por" and Google suggests everything from Porsche to Portland Community College, but add the "n" and it falls silent.

I always thought this could be tweaked a la the SafeSearch but that I was just too lazy to look. Apparently not; just examined their feature-description, and it explains that "We try to filter out suggestions that include pornographic terms, dirty words, and hate and violence terms." And that is that.

Fuck you, Google, I'd like an option to decide that for myself. Also I wasn't even looking up anything sleazy, I just wanted the full text of the Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996. Why not just let the fucking Warriors of Innocence set your policy while you're at it?

God, talking to some members of my family makes me want to eat a bullet sometimes.  Not that I don't love them or don't like talking to them, just.  God damn.  How much more desperate pathetic moronic tragic shit will occur to my family before we hit our cosmic bag limit?  I don't even think I'm sad anymore, just exhausted.

I am annoyed at the LACK OF CREATIVITY in this thread title.

And at myself for not going to bed earlier.

Yeah, I'm enjoying the new tradition of having the annoyed thread titles be annoying themselves.  a-d-f beat me to the punch, though.  I spent like 15 minutes the other day trying to come up with annoying puns on the word "Frank"

i'm so tired of people speeding down my street.  fucking drives me nuts.  i printed out the paperwork to start the procedure of getting the city to do a traffic survey for a possible speed hump, but right now i feel completely fucking powerless to get out there and get it started.  goddamnit.

right now I'm risking my life/computer by posting during this massive ass thunderstorm.

Around 5-6 AM this morning, huge ass thunderstorm rolled in and boomed so loud I 'bout leapedouttabed/shitaforementionedbed.  It was ridiculous.  Then it went away by the time I left for work and the GF was like 'can I take you awesome sweet giant umbrella' and I was like 'sure but its not really raining anymore so you probably won't need it and you won't want to carry the thing around' and she was like 'oh good point'  Then around 5-6PM more massive thunderstorms coupled with torrential rains rolled in and she's got her puny ass umbrella and has to tromp all the way home and she is gonna kill me!

This is the wrong thread but we had a seriously intense lightning storm sweep through around 3am and I love that shit.  My (very few) coworkers who actually live in the city were complaining about it today and I'm all like god's majesty, asshole, get with the program.

I love that too, but it woke me up around 8am, and I had a disoriented moment of thinking I was back in Miami that served as a real buzzkill. also shit got soaked in my apartment because all of my windows were open (probably didn't help that I shrugged, thought "eh, everything's already wet, so whatever" and left them that way).

I have a window in my apartment that sits behind my gigantic desk (computer, speakers, turntables, crap, etc) and I actually climbed onto the sill to close it last night while lightning raged outside.  I thought about how awesome my death would be if I got struck by lightning and fell to the courtyard below.

Yes!  I think a bolt or two came down somewhere on my block, 'cause it was deafeningly loud, and simultaneous light and sound.

1. I am home and reminded of how much I fucking hate the shit out of my fucking apartment. It's small and a fucking shitpile because I didn't have time to clean before getting out of town.

2. I am home and reminded of how much I fucking hate the shit out of fucking Michigan. Apparently the Red Wings are playing for something with the Stanley Cup and every asshole in my neighborhood is out wearing their Red Wings gear. I don't give a shit about hockey, but I'll rep the Blackhawks before the fucking Red Wings any day even though I hope they win the Stanley Cup so the city of Detroit will burn down. And I'll laugh.

3. I am home and I swear, if my disagreeable cat disappears into an unknown location again causing me to nearly have a coronary looking for her, only to waltz past nonchalantly as if nothing happened, I'm going to put her in the fucking microwave. (And if this has anything to do with cosmic payback for recently giving my mom shit about doing the same thing with me when I was little, the cosmos can go fuck itself. It took advantage of me when I was in a vulnerable place. One piece of drama at a time, please. Also, I hope she at least gets a little satisfaction from this I-hope-your-kids-are-exactly-like-you moment. And it's not fair to her brother, who was equally freaked out.)

Also, I am hungry. And I second the neti pot. And I wish I had some pot.

goddamn it, I hate getting into arguments first thing in the morning before we both have to leave.  Thing is, I'm gonna be fine by lunch--it's possible that she'll hold on to it until I get home tonight.  Today already sucks.

Lady, if you don't stop screaming and waking me up every day, I'm going to come in there and start screaming, and I am going to use very big, and very angry words. I may also wave my cane at you in a very menacingly old man manner.
