    Man, you've got more chips on your shoulder than an clutz in McDonalds. Chill, man!

    I find this pairing about half-way down to be particularly odd :)

    I'm a laid-back kinda guy. I like to think I'm nearly impossible to annoy. But, there are things that irk me, though I may not react much...

    -Tournament-goers who assume I'm going to lose when they hear what deck I'm playing.
    -Tournament-goers who act like prodigies after winning with a net-deck.
    -Jennifer Lopez.
    -Jennifer Lopez.
    -The whole R&B music genre.
    -Jennifer Lopez again.
    -Advertisements not aimed at my particular demographic (I can see right through them).
    -The majority of those that are.
    -Lack of logic in anything. I'm extremely logic-minded.
    -Big-budget action movies - what I call, "Homer Simpson movies". Particularly those with random, testosterone-infused names like "Exit Wounds" or "Extreme Prejudice".
    -Everything on Nickelodeon, ever, except Spongebob and most pre-Kimi Rugrats episodes.
    -The Academy Awards.
    -Jennifer Lopez.
    -When people let themselves be taken in by obvious scams. No pity here.
    -TABLOIDS, and those who base their opinions on the information within them.
    - People who put their faith in any information without examining it's source. You don't need to be cynical to wonder about motives.

    Wow. There's actually a lot of it. I suppose I could make it shorter - lots of connections up there - but I'm a fan of detail. I don't actively hate anything up there (except tabloids, which I helpfully highlighted in bold); they just irk me. And, they're probably not alone. Leetspeak, for example, was tragically left off.

    Geeze... some people have very narrow views of the world. I'd comment on a lot of these statements, except it'd probably just start some fighting and such, so I'll keep it short and just reccomend that some of you review your list of Pet Peeves and *really* reconsider these things that make you mildly annoyed (or worse)...

    So, I supposed that's my biggest pet peeve... narrow minded people.

    Things that make me mad...

    People telling me I can't do something when I know I can.

    My bad luck at tournaments.

    Noobs that think they're hotshots and brag about everything then they get their arses kicked by someone who is 1003593258 times better than them and they accuse the person of cheating.

    People that are very good at what they do but are very arrogant and self centered and rub it in when they win... especially if they're playing someone who is new to a game and they act like show offs instead of trying to help.

    Double crossing two faced people that will do what ever it takes to get what they want.

    Anyone who says GG at the beginning of a game acting like hotshots.... and then I lose cause of luck lol.

    People who make fun of others for listening to music (someone who likes country... but is made fun of by someone who likes rap or something)

    Anyone who judges people from looks or one thing they do, everyone makes mistakes anyone who says they don't is full of it.

    Lying

    People who don't know when to act normal and when to be nuts...

    Most music reviewers and movie reviewers... if something is good they say it's bad because they're jealous they didn't come up with it 90% of the time.
