    Are you annoyed Amelie might be blamed for Murray's recent dismal performance at Wimbledon?

    That song was annoying when Debbie Boone reached #1 with it in '77.

    A better song would be Sir Reggie's..."Someone Saved My Life Tonight". After all, Gerald is from Shepherd's Bush, a bit of a commute from the "East End lights" but the same metropolis.

    I was really annoyed Kyrgios ran out of steam against Raonic. Hmmm, maybe next time.

    Not coming off the goddamn telephone when I arrive, and then spending the next twenty minutes continuing said conversation, after I've just driven two hours to see them.

    As wonderful an invention the telephone is, I really do find them to be the absolute rudest of devices sometimes.

    I am annoyed by people who immediately start threads declaring a slam to be boring and meaningless the moment Rafa catches the early flight out.

    It annoys me that you wear socks. Just go around bare, in flip-flops.

    Jimbo is annoying me big time with something about someone needing to be #1.

    The Strawberries and Cream thread is also mouth-wateringly annoying since i can't get my hands on any.

    I find certain types of flip-flopping annoying when going bare. Also you can get arrested. :oops:

    I was super annoyed when Team Sky elected to drop 2012 TDF winner and 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist Sir Bradley Wiggins.

    Team decided to go with the younger Chris Froome, 2013 TDF winner...

    Guess what, Froome pulled out after falling twice on Stage 5 today.

    Now what smart*** upper management? Who's gonna ride and win for you now? Or did y'all think GBR winning 2 in a row is enough?:-|

    And w/o Manxman Mark, forget about winning the sprint stages too (nevermind the TDF altogether)!

    Grrr!

    Sounds gender specific, are you trying to alienate a portion of TTW posters in particular?:)

    The fat lady on the top floor of my flat doesn't just nag her husband. Whenever I hear her screaming at her scruffy Hagar-esque sloth of a husband, I remember those lines "fat and psychopathic wives beat them within inches of their lives".

    the idea that if you look back you live in he past.

    There are the two sides of the coins.

    Some just think of present because they hide away from past

    Van Hagar made some quality music. I think 5150 is their best work.

    Which is why my cell phone number is ***-***-5150 since 1998.

    ''Einstein believed in timelessness; he believed that all of time exists at once: past, present, future. Everyone we ever knew and everything we'll ever be, is with us in this moment.''

    ''If this is true, then all moments are equally real and accessible to us. We just have to know how.''

    That is a great concept
    It can be true,and even if I am a firm believer in multidimensionality
    As you said,just a matter of consciousness
    Sorry to bringing this up in this thread, but the only close human beings to that...are Led Zeppelin
    They dedicated their most powerful song to this theoretical principle:Kashmir
    But that just could be another proof that they were not really humans

    ^ We will have to confirm all this with suresh, whether there is any such thing as time at all.

    He will be back in some time.

    Are you implying sir that I'm going to be lectured?;)

    If that's the case, I'd rather run another two-milers after office hours.

    I've got a co-worker, male, who likes to rant all the time about how superior women are to men. I guess he figures it's ok because he's male. It annoys me because:
    • it's not true, reverse sexism isn't any better than sexism,
    • it's not particularly cute or funny, maybe he thinks it's ok because it shows how enlightened he is,
    • I've heard this rant easily over 100 times by now, and it's wearing thin.

    New trends that disgust me.

    1. Dudes that roll their pants up to their ankles. With top siders and sweater tied around neck.

    2. Salmon colored docker pants.

    3. Dudes that have ponytail of small clump of hair. Seriously. Just. Stop. Fuching wanna be Hobbit schmucks.

    Cheap people, if you make 25 bucks an hour or more stop asking me how much the a Burrito is at the Taco stand, you can afford one even with 2 kids.

    Or getting 10k in resale value for a 10 year old Honda Mini Van with 175k on it, the guy says he is going to lose his shirt.

    Cheapness is hard to look at.

    Tell me about it...dropped a fare at a top hotel after they had dined at a high-end steakhouse and got $4 from the two guys for a 15-minute ride. $10 would have average.

    It's hard not to be obsessed with time (and such things) as you grow older and realize that each day you are one day closer to "death".

    I forgot to mention I've taken a liking to Mahone in the 4th season. The number of twists is crazy.

    Season 3 was afflicted sadly by the writers union strike!

    The 4th season is where they try to squeeze it for all its worth at each and every turn.

    Revenge time for Special Agent Mahone in Season 4.
