Pet Peeve: Pathetic Blog Stats
I decided to do a random search on the interent for the top rated blogs. I was quite pissed to find that the top blogs may average thousands of viewers a day but if you look at their statistics, you'll find the average viewer only spend 2 seconds on their blog. That's pathetic. Meanwhile, there are hundreds of blogs that have really good content and yet no one ever sees.
Many people are surfing the Internet and use blog exchange sites. Yet few people take the time to really examine a site. They simply surf for credits and move on. It's sad, actually. There are a lot of blogs out in the world with great content. Some original. Others creative and unique. They go unnoticed except for the glimse that people give them.
Challenge me...Read this site and post comments on the topics. You don't have to agree but by taking the time to post it shows you are out for more than just surfing credits. I'll post the results of this in three days ( to allow for ample data).

People With Negative IQ's...Quarentine the Stupid People!
It speaks to the sheer number of dumb people that society has birthed. So bad, I question if some of these people have IQ's with negative signs in front of them. I can't tell you how many times I have witnessed dumb people asking truly dumb questions. I know it's not always their fault but can't we put all these people in a room designed for dumb people? I mean, can't we quarentine the stupid idiots? Sadly, I don't think they are 100% stupid, I think they are just too lazy to think!
A perfect example is when someone gets on a public bus, sits down for three stops and then decides to ask the driver if the bus goes to a specific stop. Shouldn't you have asked that question before getting ON THE BUS?
Another great example is going to a fish restaurant and complaining about the fish smell or going to a bar asking for a non-alcoholic drink. Or someone who asks the question " I have a tv with the antenna on top of it but the picture is coming in fuzzy...what should I do?" - UM move the god damn antenna a bit and if it doesn't work - BUY CABLE!
My all time favorite is when people complain about not getting the sunday ad's in the newspaper. Well, if they are that important to you..CHECK the newspaper for the ad's prior to buying it.
I mean it's very simple: Smarten' Up! - Don't be Stupid!

Comb-Overs: Make Them Stop!
You see, there are people who hate when they start to go bald. I can only imagine the frustration that you must be going through. That being said, allowing the hair on the sides of your head to grow out to 1 foot long and beyond is not the cure. All this does is allow you to do what too many balding men do and that is the comb-over approach. What's worse is that this trend has spiraled to the point where our English Dictionary has captured the essense of the word. Below is the entry:
Main Entry: comb-over
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: An attempt by a balding person to grow the remaining hair longer and comb it over the bald spot to give the illusion of hair.

I'd like to say to those men in society that are doing the comb-over and/or are balding on the top part of your head....It's part of life. A bad hairpiece is not going to make you look any better. Reality is most people can tell when you do a hairpiece. The hair is parted to perfectly and the hairline never blends together without it being blatantly noticable. The comb-over is no better. It's not a solution. So just stop it. All I want to do is become a hair stylist and purposely cut off the long hair on the sides of your head so you can't do it anymore!
Interactive: Do you do a comb-over? If so, why? Have you seen someone with a bad comb-over? Maybe they have a bad hairpiece? - Post your thoughts, stories along with rants and raves in the comments section.

If you've got a picture of a bad comb-over or hairpiece that YOU'VE TAKEN...Originial work only....I'd love to see it, as well!

I have resisted posting this pet peeve but I believe now is the appropriate time to bring this smelly topic to the front of my blog. I have called it "DriveBy Farts".
You know exactly what I am talking about. It's the simple act of walking by a person or place, letting it fly and continuing on to leave those you walked by in the pain of smelling your dirty stintch. You may giggle as it squeeks out but I assure you those you infest with your horrible smell are not giggling. Instead, they are asking "What the heck did that man eat?" And "Didn't his parents raise him with any manners?". In short, you are viewed as a rude individual with no manners.
Sometimes, they are unavoidable. You are walking...you feel it and you just have to let it rip. It's enough to make your face turn beat red with embarrassment but you did it anyway. Why? Do you find humor in it? Or did you just not have the energy to walk away from the area where people were and let the air out in an area not to affect half of the town.
Reality Check: It's GROSS! The last thing I want to do while I am out and about in society is smell your dirty air that has been stuffed up inside you for god knows how long. If you want to fart, that's fine. I am not saying don't fart. I am saying...go into a room where it's you and only you, push the air out and then stand in there for a few minutes. See if you are knocked out by your own smell!
