What non-political thing do you detest the most?

I detest peanut butter cookies and people eating crunchy things next to my ears.

I detest them both equally.

Hammerheads who are so utterly incapable of being away from their "devices" that they walk into others on the street. I've seen a couple walk straight into traffic yet escape the natural consequences of such breathtaking stupidity.

The dimwits who charge into elevators like a herd of meth-driven wildebeest as soon as the doors open without giving anyone in said elevator the chance to exit.

Bicyclists who merrily run red lights into cross traffic and smirk at you when you have to slam on the brakes to keep from mowing them down. There should be a bounty on these assholes.

I suspect these idiots are parents because they are too stupid to understand birth control.

20. A cop pulled me over for doing 59 in a 55 the other day

That's the only thing I've hated lately. A few years back I was pulled over for doing 70 in a 65 in the same state and shortly after that for doing 81 in a 75 in Arizona. With the four over and five over I was just tooling along trying to make a little time. When you're going 300 or 500 miles it makes a difference. For the six over I had the cruise set at 75 and then went down a big hill and built up speed. I didn't realize it until it was too late and there was a cop sitting at the bottom of the hill.

I probably would not have been pulled over any of those times had I not been driving a large commercial vehicle. If I was just out there cruising around in my Honda I'm sure I'd get a pass on that stuff. To be fair to the cops they all let me go with a warning, but there's this new thing called CSA. I'm not sure what that stands for, but it basically keeps track of truckers' violations even if they were not ticketed. If you have a violation you get points. Get so many points and you're out of a job and probably won't be able to find another one for a while.

88. Hmmm

CSA must be the latest "thing". I retired shortly after CDLs became a nuisance. And that was after being an instructor too. I found it hard to be out there and enjoy driving like I did in the 70 and early 80s. Too much traffic, too many electronic tattle tale stuff, just got to be a pain so I quit and went to college. I always found that cruise control, a new thing on trucks in my day, just didn't work to my advantage unless I was going across the flatlands.

Were you on I-40? And do you know where that big hill east of Moriarty, NM that just a sign that says HILL at the top (eastbound that is) and then you go down on a long curve that's banked the wrong way for about 2.2 miles or something like that? I almost got in trouble there every time, popular speed trap at the time. Even though you didn't get a ticket, it still cost you an hour minimum. Sorry to hear it. Hope make delivery on time in spite of it... or is that even a problem anymore?

let 'em do what they want. You want to snort rose petals or slather horny goat weed all over your pecker? Fine, go ahead.

But, if they want to kill an animal - especially an endangered animal - just so they can get hard, I just don't even have the words for what I think should happen to them. It actually makes me feel more despair than anger, though.

53. Jacked up trucks with loudass pipes.

Either one is bad enough on its own, but making sure your exhaust is dead level with the window of the person you're going past should be a capital offense.

Ice from soft drinks, too. Not just next to my ear, but anywhere in the room. Yuk. Needless to say, I despise those Kit Kat commercials, and will not be buying them as long as they keep airing those disgusting commercials.

Peanut butter cookies, on the other hand--my favorite!

80. Harley riders with straight pipes (no muffler) who like to blip their throttle at traffic lights

when my window is down. I find myself blaring the horn and smiling at them.

107. I feel as if

I need to 'defend' this a little. As a 30+ year Harley owner/rider I can honestly say...the throttle blip as you phrase it is simply to clear the carb so the bike doesn't bog during acceleration due to the carb overfull of gas. Most of the carb models will do this...regardless of the style of pipes. Now the riders with the new fuel injected Harleys....I agree it is totally un-necessary and an attention seeking move when they rev while sitting at a stoplight.

108. What do the straight pipes do -- other than annoy heck out of folks and give rider's ego a boost?


I can tell when someone is trying to keep the noise down vs. enjoying the heck out of making a racket.

It's just that the world is noisy enough without such indecency toward others. I'd suggest a BMW or something, which are made to be quiet.

BTW -- I feel the same way about straight pipes on a car, although I had a Plymouth with a 426 cubic inch engine and cutouts when a teenager. Ran em straight once, and realized it was kind of immature and deafening.

Appreciate the explanation though. Be safe.

104. I disagree - they are not tobacco, they don't smell, there is no second hand smoke

They are flavored water vapor and that's all. As someone who is quitting a long term smoking habit I find them quite useful. BTW, most who use them don't try to shock others by using them and appearing to really be smoking. They (and I) are usually discrete about it.

that's quite a comprehensive list ~ I'd say all of the above with the exception of cilantro and calamari, I love cilantro and enjoy calamari once in a while.

90. lazy & inconsiderate "social" farting

And I don't mean the occasional one that just gets away from you.
It's no different than peeing your pants because you can't be bothered to get up from the dinner table to relieve your bladder.

109. Overweight teenage boys, riding oversized, loud lawn mowers in

small yards. What a joke. This goes for pot-bellied men as well.

If I can PUSH (think exercise) my electric lawn mower around the yard, they can do the same!
