...what kind of humility do you show when you say us teenagers who at least try to show humility?
People who hold contradictory ideas in their heads and refuse to recognize said contradiction.
I got your mum's phone number out of it. It seemed to work out.
Sociopaths who enjoy the pain of others (e.g. griefers on minecraft).
Just to make sure... The set of all people who enjoy another's pain and the set of all sociopaths are *different.* They're not disjoint, but P\S will definitely not create an empty set. Got that?
People who incorrectly think they're funny due to the fact that their audience incorrectly thinks they're funny.
Okay, I must call this out. Solipsism much? Sweetie, people can have different tastes than you *and still be right.*
Music made without any regard to
the pleasure of the listenermy tastes, the only ones that matter (see: Black Eyed Peas, Lil Wayne, anything my sister listens to.)
I fixed that for you. It expresses your point a lot better now.
Science fiction that deviates from commonly accepted sci-fi rules regarding suspension of disbelief. Matter creation, although basically impossible, is okay. Psychic powers are not. (looking at you, betazoids and Jedi).
Uhhh.... what? Just... what? I've read this a couple of times and I still can't grok what you're saying. Does this specific combination of words even have a meaning in the English language? It's so nonsensical that I can't make heads or tails of it.
Businesses that take advantage of willful ignorance (see: anything New Age). I think the willfully ignorant deserve what they get, but people shouldn't make a living giving it to them.
If they deserve what they get, why is it wrong to give it to them? Isn't this slightly contradictory of you?
Politicians who value taking the party line more than fixing problems. I.e., all politicians.
...Wiener? Anthony Wiener is pretty freaking awesome, you know. Look into him. He's <3.
Quiet people who feel unable to express their opinions.
Oh noes, I'm sorry that my social anxiety bothers you. What would you like me to do to fix this?
Beautiful women who refuse to talk to me. (I'm just kidding, these don't exist).
I feel that if I tried to examine all the misogyny in this statement, I'd be here all day.
People who judge others by arbitrary factors.
*COUGH* *COUGH* *COUGH* MIRROR. LOOK INTO IT. *COUGH* *COUGH*
Ehh. Certain puberty is nice. At times, though, I could not agree more.
Boo hoo. Cry more.
People who put two spaces after the ends of sentences.
You mean... people who do it right?
Objective-C. Not just because it's OS-specific, but also because it's weird and accomplishes nothing.
If it really accomplished nothing, would it be used as much as it is?
The growing of hair and nails.
Them's fighting words.
XKCD made Slightly Worses that actually make XKCD slightly worse.
You mean... xkcdsw strips that do one of the things they're supposed to do?
BBCode: what's wrong with HTML?
The odd societal relationship to genitalia: either they're gross or sexy. Pick one.
Grosexy. That's my choice.
The fact that people have arbitrarily decided that it's no longer reasonable to call the mentally challenged "retards".
HOW DARE THOSE UNPRIVILEGED PEOPLE SAY THAT I CAN'T REFER TO THEM WITH SLURS? LANGUAGE! DESCRIPTIVISM! YAHTZEE!
Those who temporarily alter their tastes to appease their significant other.
My tastes are turning a bit more classic rock/reggae/indie as a result of my joshzy and I don't mind one bit, whether it's temporary or not.
A lack of consensus on issues that should seem objective.
Okay, this is asinine. "[S]hould seem objective" implies that you yourself know that these issues are not objective. So you're being angry that people don't automatically agree on things that are up to some degree of interpretation.
