    The fucking people that when you're trying to turn left edge up trying to block your view when they're trying to turn right, and then get mad at you when you move forward to try and see past them.

    Fuck you man, I was here first and where do you get off getting bent at me for doing the exact same shit YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW?!

    I get annoyed sometimes at people who act unpredictably in the presence of an oncoming bicycle. I usually prefer not to use the bell or otherwise announce my presence because people do stupid unpredictable things when they know someone's coming. If they don't know I'm there, and they just stay where they are, I can predict that and go around. I can't go around someone who's half way between getting out of the way one way, but also kinda changing their mind and going the other way, but not really doing either well enough to be out of the way.

    Now that I got my shiny new toy I was complaining about not getting here soon enough, I need to sell two guitars to cover the cost. I don't want to but the new guitar is that good!
    However I am torn of whether I want to sell the guitar I have on my profile pic. It's great in terms of quality but lacks slightly in terms of playability and mostly in terms of sound. I'm not sure if it's just a pick up swap issue or I don't like the fundamental sound of the guitar. In any case I'm undecided of whether I want to explore the possibility of getting the sound I want from the instrument as I like all other aspects of it but it'll cost money and time and might not give me the results I'd like. Especially when I have other instruments that I just plug in and enjoy the hell out off!

    TL;DR Do I just sell this guitar I don't like the sound off or invest on new pickups that might make it super killer?

    This plus the people that do this usually have dark tinted windows so you can't see anything through their car. And I get tinted windows in a sunny country but in N. Ireland it really strips the only useful characteristic they have.

    When you order light roast coffee and get a medium roast instead. Those dirty art school/women's studies majors working the counter probably did that on purpose to stick it to the patriarchy (ie me).

    That, and the pricing. I thought maybe this would be the phone that convinces me to leave the Apple stuff behind, but it's prohibitively expensive. I have to choose between keeping my current phone, doubling my monthly cost for two years, or just buying it outright. Looks like I'm keeping my old iPhone.

    I say it every time there a new iPhone - they absolutely don't have a monopoly on ridiculously high-priced phones.

    Well, after all the security announcement over the weekend, I have the mother of all first-world problems:

    WiFi and KRACK.
