  • Blogs in txt lingo – Correct grammar is now passé! Let us participate in the latest trend: DESTROYING EVERY LANGUAGE MADE BY MAN AND PERFECTED THROUGH THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF USAGE!!!
  • Harry/Hermione “Shippers” – I see nothing wrong with rooting for Harry Potter & Hermione to be an item by the end of book 7, but do you actually have to go ballistic and declare war on J.K. Rowling because she wanted HER OWN CHARACTERS to fall in love with somebody else?! Please. (EDIT: see their PETITION.)
  • Cueshé – Every rock star cliché in one package. And they have the nerve to remake “Hard to Believe”
  • The iPod nano coming out a few months after I got my shuffle.
  • “If you don’t pass this text message, your mom will die in 7 days” – Whoever thought of that chain SMS (and its variants) should be chased by a hungry pack of Chihuahuas. That was the SICKEST crap I ever got on my phone.

  • Olsen Twins – What’s not to hate?!
  • Karel Marquez – Refer to “Olsen twins
  • Cellphone Sex “Scandals” – So you have a video/pic/soundclip of you and your ex doing it. You are spiteful and you want revenge. So what’s the decent thing to do? That’s right, you SPREAD it through bluetooth and Yahoo! Groups! Geez, does anybody still recognize the word RESPECT anymore?
  • Our neighbor who blows his Honda CRV’s horn every 10 minutes and cranks up the volume of his oversized stereo system to 200 decibels just to make everyone in the neighborhood aware of the fact that he owns those expensive toys.
  • Emo Music – It was cool the first time around. Now everyone’s emo. And what’s with the whiny/asthmatic voice anyway?! (EDIT: cue the rants about “every band suddenly sounding like incubus” trend back in 2004)
  • The Thai Prime Minister accusing us of cheating in the SEA Games.
