Really tired of the same old ads.

Anybody else?

I hate the Azaelia Banks ads here on DU because I hate rap.

I hate mousy Flo in the Progressive commercials.

I hate that fucking stupid song in the ebay commercials.

These are three of my personal "most hated" list. Overall when I stop to think that all of the fact that everyone in the commercial is a paid actor, I start hating it then, and it spirals upward exponentially from there.

1. Hate 'em all,

but then again I'm an anti-capitalist, environmentalist libertarian-socialist. I try to tune it all out.

6. I suppose that makes you think you are better than me because I'm just a plain old radical!

Well I'm also an agnostic but that kind of comes with the territory... and extraordinarily liberal which many younger people don't know is implied by the radical label.

I should also say, and not because I'm copying you, that I'm an environmentalist and lean heavily to socialism too.

But then I also believe in dictatorships, but only if I get to be the dictator.

So I must be a radically liberal environmental socialist agnostic with dictatorial leanings. And I thought I was just one of the simple folk, I'm more complex than I thought!

8. I'm just on the south side of the St. Lawrence but we probably wouldn't have anything in common

to talk about.

Cheers to you too.

3. I use the ad time as an opportunity to talk to people around me.

We tune them out.

4. I seriously hate all the ads associated with the iPhone 6.

There is not a single thing about the iPhone 6 that is a new technology. NFC? Android phones have had this for years. The ability to call from other devices? Web OS first debuted this feature. 1920 x 1080 resolution? Try 2560 x 1440 on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Nexus 6.

5. I hate just about all car ads.

Annoying music, annoying people. Even the cars are annoying.

But the absolute worst ones are for Cialis.

9. And those boner pill ads are the longest ones too!

Takes them half the ad to list all the side effects too.

"Taking Cialis will raise your blood pressure, give you screaming headaches, the Plague, your nose will fall off and your skin will turn purple."

10. I recommend Adblock Plus,

if you can install it on your computer.
