What's the point?
You play the game you don't play the game!
You can't do anything within reason anyway!
Can't do this can't do that!
:?
only have profession to make money....not to be used practically like research and development even those your character is research and development type.
Your not aloud to use your brain..just shoot or be shot.
you can't build cool stuff because even that your a droids engineer you can't build droids and can't craft things you have ranks in.

WHAT IS THE POINT?

Sounds like you need a new GM there, buddy.

If you're referring to a computer game, then you've got a problem. Ditch the stupid computer game and get into a good face to face gaming group where you can enjoy a character you make.

Free range venting! I'm in!

Why is it so windy today?
It blows the leaves around
even though there are no more leaves!
:D

And even though it's autumn I can't enjoy autumn
because I have to work!

woe is me

Why is my CD scratched up beyond recovery?

I get new GMasters but they are so petty.
Because they are not aloud to do somethings ( even if their ideas were stupid) take it out on everyone else.

Don't feel bad, I lie all the time. In fact, most of everything I say is a lie...chronic liar? That's me! :D :P

Aaaaaanyway, to get back on topic (?), I like meatloaf too, but it has to be moist and with either Heinz ketchup or some good bbq sauce...or hot sauce.

I loooooove hot sauce. :D

Retardedly loud and obnocious sound systems.

Excuse me, but I AM ground beef, so just you think about that. :P

i'm right with you on all except 7 & 8, which I can't really speak to. And, as a moderate, especially 3. 10 i'm not sure about, as I've never encountered that, though I'm guessing it'd get to me.

Ah, another "Calvin & Hobbes" fan. Frankly, I think *any* poetry by Bill Watterson will have that effect.

What do I hate?

1) Working at cash registers (I just got off work)
2) High gas prices
3) My pitiable excuse for a love life
4) My brother when we play Battlefront 1 or 2 (he *loves* using heavy explosives and doesn't care about collateral damage to his team)
5) Speech and Diction classes
6) The grammer of the English language

4. Nose hair
5. The movie industry's desire to use more and more digital effects even when the quality of it is worse than cartoons.
6. Holonet members with signatures longer than 7 lines!
7. That horrible onion breath when people eat Funyuns.
8. That equally horrible breath when people eat Corn Nuts
9. Other political things not appropriately discussed on this board.
10. Pomegranits (not even sure the word is spelled correctly because I hate it so much I don't want to look it up)

8. The Energizer bunny
9. People that insist they are right, regardless of the evidence presented to them, and absolutely refuse to take any form of responsibility when something, anything, goes wrong (IMHO, this covers at least half of the population of the USA)

What I rant about(short version):
1. My cousin's DVD-player gave up the ghost while he was watching a DVD he loaned and now I can't get it back because it doesn't eject.
2. The Finnish education system(3+ years of education + 3 years work experience needed to even qualify to enter into an advanced education course).
3. The Finnish employment system(you need experience to get work and you need work to get experience... Warning!!! Infinite loop occurred while processing the given data).
4. Never having enough money to start living on my own(instead of leeching off my parents, while barely living on an unemployment fee).

11. Starting the Christmas season WAY too early! It's bad enough that the stores totally ignore Thanksgiving (which I have a personal affinity for, since I was born on it!), but they start putting up their decorations, sales and commercials right after Halloween (and some of them right after freakin' Labor Day!) To make matters worse, one of the local radio stations that, in the past played nothing but Christmas music starting after Thanksgiving, started in with their never-ending Christmas lineup right after Halloween! I mean, this is getting ridiculous! The way they're going, they will soon have Christmas specials all year long! Why can't they wait until Thanksgiving to open up the Christmas season? I can live with that. But, do they?! NOOOO! "Let's capitalize on the buying frenzy and get as much money as we can! They don't need Thanksgiving!" What's wrong with Thanksgiving, huh?! Think of the poor turkey farmers! How would they feel if they were ignored? You can't just ignore them! WHEN WILL THE INSANITY END!?!

Uh, I forgot what else I was going to rant about.

ooo! ooo! ooo! My turn! *hops up and down like a giddy schoolboy*

1--- Ne'er do well relatives and in-laws that bum money. CONSTANTLY. I'm poor. You are too. Difference is, I have a JOB. Get one.

2--- Hippie liberals and Puritan conservatives.

3--- Buttpipe police officers that write you a ticket for a rolling stop at a stop sign when there are NO other cars around to be threatened by said rolling stop.

4--- Extremely picky customers that try to order rediculous things not even featured on the menu.

5--- Owners of a family owned restauraunt that cannot give out any raises to their struggling kitchen personnel due to "financial concerns" yet can afford to build ANOTHER dining section and brand new bar to add to already existing restauraunt, and own 2 Mercedes Benzes, an Isuzu Rodeo, an Escalade, a Harley Davidson motorcycle, a boat, 2 rental properties, and a very luxurious home in an upscale part of Parkersburg. Let's not forget the 6 vacations they take a year. And that's just the husband and wife! I'm not even gonna start on the kids... Oh, yeah. They're struggling, all right. One more kick in the nards--- one of our dayshift cooks had her HOUSE bought out by them, so now she's stuck in indentured servitude. A bit dramatic, i know, yet entirely true. God, I need a new job...

6--- Lazy slacker gherkin jerkin brown nosers that get away with being lazy bastards because they're good friends with management.

7--- Anyone who eats their steak any more done than medium rare. Though I guess if you like to chew on shoe leather, that's your prerogative.

8--- Anything having to do with Scott Stapp (hurry up and blow out your vocal cords trying to sound like Eddie Vedder so we won't have to listen to your pretentious arrogant crappy faux christian rock anymore), Fred Durst(self explanatory), Britney(STILL self explanatory), Christina (just because), Eminem (he has talent. I'll give him that. but all the talent in the world can't save you from being a douche), P Diddy/Puffy/Sean Combs/whatever the hell his name is this week (dude, Biggie's dead. I'm sorry. It's great you profiteered off his death, though), Michael Jackson (somebody please put this poor freak of nature out of his misery already, and send his kids to normal parents before it's too late), Paris Hilton (dumb rich famous and good for nothing broad), and "Fiddy" Cent (not saying anything here, he'll shoot me).

9--- Any retard that buys their kids/grandkids a video game with a M17 rating, then cries and whines when said game has "adult themes" *GASP!* such as violence, gore, drug references, sexuality--- you know, everything that's in a R rated movie that you wouldn't take your kids to normally unless you were absolutely sure that their precious fragile little minds could handle it. Also, those rare sociopathic mental midgets that can't handle reality and go on a rampage, then blame said rampage on video games and RPGs. It's THESE idiots that give decent hobbies a bad name. And let's not forget the idiot politicians that are supporting and advocating censorship on what you and I can CHOOSE (or not choose) to do in a FANTASY--- I repeat, FANTASY--- world.

10. Gay bashing. It just makes no sense. Regardless of the views you have on gay people, you must realize that they are doing straight guys a favor by being with EACH OTHER than women. That's less competition, man! Realize this--- Gay men are NOT the "enemy." Good looking dudes with lots of money and nice cars ARE the enemy. They're the ones who should be bashed.

Well, I'm out of breath and steam. It's been a while since I ranted and it felt great. So comment! Counter rant! Keep on rantin'! Vent! It's good for you! Kinda like laxative for your brain!

I agree on the steaks! I like mine medium well. Done just enough where I won't contract some disease like E. coli, but still juicy enough to enjoy the flavor while it's in my mouth.

Great! Now, I'm hungry! ;)

Also, agreed on Paris Hilton. I can't stand even the sight of her! She is the poster child of why the rest of the world hates Americans! Dumb girl with no real skills that thinks she can get what she wants when she throws enough money at it. I wonder how old she's going to be when she finally gets bored of the "party girl" lifestyle and realizes she has no real future in life.

Grimace, Jan, no offense really meant on the steak remark. Heck, some people eat bugs, so shoe leather ain't that bad in comparison! ;) Just speaking from a tired and cranky grill cook's point of view.

Well done steaks, especially a thicker cut like a filet mignon take for-freakin'- EVER to get to the correct temperature. It really sucks when you can't butterfly the filet or put a grill press on it (though admittedly, doing that squashes the juice out of it. Hence, I won't do it unless I'm in a real hurry or buried in tickets). So, inevitably, some people start complaining about the time it takes to get their food even though I'm doing the best I can to insure they get a quality piece of meat ordered the way they like. As much as I despise the people I work for, I do really like to cook and take pride in the meals I serve. I just hate unreasonable customers.

So, in retrospect, change that rant from what it was to--- Impatient people who do not comprehend the fact that it TAKES TIME to cook a thick cut of meat all the way done. That really grinds my gears, yeah!

On a personal note, I used to eat 'em well untill I started cooking. Now Med Rare is the only way I'll eat beef (unless it's hamburger, then well all the way). I guess blood is an acquired taste. Unless you're a vampire. :D
