The Internet is Pissing Me Off These Days!
« on: December 18, 2018, 03:12:22 pm »
Several things are really irritating me:

CNN - What is with those auto-play videos.  I'm not an idiot. I can read.

Tumblr - No more porn?  WTF!  Another one bites the dust.

Craigslist - No more singles ads?  Where is this?  Saudi Arabia?  Gimme a break.

Chrome - The new look with rounded windows sucks bad.  It used to be reversible.  Not now.

Ad Blocker pop-ups - Yeah, I use an ad blocker. Sue me. Force me to urn it off and I'll just leave the site.

The two posters above me are male but listed their gender as female for some reason.

OP, you're in your 50s and married with a daughter. Stay away from pornography and online singles websites. (Since you're not single. It's unethical / dishonest to go there.)

My daughter would like it.  She's ten.  I'm an adult.  I don't watch cartoons.

Yes, ageism (amongst other things) is a huge problem in Korea.  My
spouse and I have our own teaching business.  So, we don't have to
worry about prehistoric management practices.  Together we make
10M/month.  So, by 2029 (official retirement date) we hope to have
enough saved.  If we don't, we can just keep working.

We also pay into a life insurance policy that pays out in 2029.  Add to
that the equity that we will have on our apartment.  Hopefully we will
have enough.

Wow, you nailed me there.  Good work.  How astute.

What you're doing is unhealthy for your kids.

I have been here a while.  Own a business.  Have a family.  What would I do back home?
Go begging for a job somewhere?

Also, I was towed around by my parents when I was young.  It was terrible.  Never
keeping friends. Then trying too hard to make friends in a new place.  I don't want
to put my kids through that.

Plus... I guess a part of me enjoys striking back at non-Americans who rag on America. (Zola is next.)

I'm from Canada

if I buy a bar of chocolate that makes me gag, then I can take it back and get a refund.  Try that with Hollywood.

99% of what Hollywood makes these days is puerile crap aimed at children. (Or adults who are at the same level as children.)

Yea, that's why people all over the world still refer to America and the land of opportunities and millions are flocking in to get a piece of the action.

I'm from the world and I certainly don't want to live there.  Nor, do I suspect, most Europeans, Aussies, Kiwis etc.

The American dream is dead.  Has been for a long time. Quite obviously a nation in serious decline.

Wow, you're on fire dude.  And a stupid video that I didn't watch.

I guess I should add another thing that pisses me off on the net...
