....loud, obnoxious radio talk show hosts

....spending inordinate amounts of time maintaining grass!

....who can respect anything Harrison Ford does now (that he has an earring and dates Calista Flockheart. My god, his is 62 and has an earring.)

....to spend more for bottled water than for a Coke or Pepsi. (what happened to the concept of added value?)

Golf course communities (especially in desert/semi-arrid states) or golf for that matter. . . .

Commercial country music (not the classics or bluegrass, but the southern adult version of Justin Timberlake music (imo)

NASCAR.

It's not that it's no better or worse than any other leisure pursuit, but the pseudo-religious fanatisim that it's followed is scary.

Hey, hey, wait a minute there !

Hey Skeleton:

Good Heavy Metal is the only intelligent rock music! I challenge anyone to read the lyrics from, say Dark Tranqullity's The Gallery album. Maudlin of the Well is as challenging as any jazz wanker.

(I'm not talking about Poison or Ratt or crappy Nu-Metal-that does suck!)

I was refering to Death metal and such alike where the "singer" doesn't sing, but rather screams and yells, backed up by a great deal of cacophony....

More: I Have trouble understanding people who like:
  • Greenpeace
  • pseudoscience like Ufology or Scientology
  • Harry Potter books
  • Mc Donald's in general
  • Racism
  • any weird cult like Moon cult or such

Did you really think I was unaware of the various pollution control systems available on newer cars? So, my question to you is; should I point out painfully obvious facts to you after each of your posts? :)

greenpeace

I don't allways agree with greenpeace, but they serve a noble cause. As long as they aren't violent they serve a purpose of publicizing environmental issues.

A few more addition to the list, that just came to mind:
-Techno
-Latin music (oh, the IRONY!)
[edit]-House and car alarms... nobody cares, just turn off the friggin alarm already! We know that no burglar is trying to steal anything, it's just a false alarm, like the 99% of the times! [/edit]
Tom R hit the sweet spot:
greenpeace
word! Greenpeace= Enviromental Fundamentalists.
