    Now I'm inclined to start thinking that feminists annoy me. Sheesh. Just try to have a frigging conversation with those people. The minute you even insinuate that hormones have any effect on human behaviour the conversation runs into a wall 100mph. Splat. End of discussion and you're wrong no matter what you say after that or even what you've said before.

    [​IMG] My mother is a feminist and isn't like that :shake: most feminists aren't. What will annoy feminists (and most women anyway) is when the implications are on that it's only women that have trouble with hormones and disregard what they say/do because you suspect it's... a delicate time :p

    Yeah, well there are some people who're actually interested not in fortifying their positions and digging trenches. I'm just annoyed with the kind who think that any inclination to human physiology is reductionism and the only proper way of looking at inequality is a sociocultural perspective and that there are no differences let alone distinctive differences between the sexes and individuals in the way they perceive the world and act that could not be studied through physiology, neurology, psychology and psychiatry. In fact it seems that all the other disciplines are to them as subjects of sociological scrutiny also subordinate to sociology and gender studies leading to a notion that an interdisciplinary view of studying human beings is almost absolutely fruitless unless it recognizes the true hierarchy of science in which their field of science is the brightest achievement that humanity has ever managed.

    But when the other 60% fail to mount sufficient interest, it's easier for the 40% to get their way. I'm not so convinced that they bring their religion to work, but rather have the inside track on what the majority of those that care enough to vote want. ***** about the complacent ones that don't vote and probably wouldn't support the guy that won all you want, but don't blame the Church for the complacency of the non-members...

    It really annoys me when people assume that religion is the problem when the fault clearly lies on other shoulders...

    Ah, but you forgot one thing. Here in the US, you usually end up voting for either the Republican or the Democratic candidate...you could vote independent, but that's essentially throwing your vote away. Even if one of the candidates isn't mormon, people here aren't going to go out of their way to *not* vote for the mormon just because of their religion...they might actually be the best candidate for the job...

    Don't assume that the 60% don't vote...it just might be that the mormon candidate is the perfect person for the job - save for his religion. :rolling:

    This is a very annoying thread! Kitrax, is the Mormon faith really that influential in terms of political policy? Could you cite some examples? And lest you think this is me Mormon baiting, I have been told by many members of the Church that Utah is a pain in the butt lace to live because of some overly zealous members. I wouldn't move there based on the rumors I've heard. Enlighten me with fact!

    Also, allow me to venture that 40% is not a majority but is often what I believe is called a plurality. Meaning that if on a particular issue 100% of the people vote, and if 40% vote one way, 30% vote a second way, and the final 30% vote a third way, the 40% won, and it wasn't because they engaged in any fancy tricks to do so -- it's a natural, if unpleasant, result of the "first-past-the-post" structure of many elements of Western politics. That's also the reason that 3rd parties don't do well in Western democracies that come from a British tradition.

    LKD and Gnarf: This is *really* off topic, and if we continue, this thread is going to end up in the Alleys.

    So let me just end this tangent by saying:

    The majority of Utah Legislatures are Mormon and the legislation passed by that majority tends to cater towards Mormons. In the end it's all politics, and everything in politics is debatable...so take it or leave it. I was just saying the whole thing annoys me. :rolling:

    I understand your annoyance.

    A new item for the list:

    Students who whine and complain that all we do is sit in the class, so the teacher busts his big white butt to organize a field trip, then they complain that they don't want to go on the trip!!!! AAAAAHHHHHGGGG!:mad:

    Here's another one: I put a lot of salt on my food. I don't use salt when I cook so that anyone else who eats the food can eat it, but once I have MY food on MY plate, I use a lot of salt. People who comment on this with such brilliant gems as "salt isn't very good for you, you know" aggravate me slightly but it's the dorks who won't let up: "wow, that's gross, how can you DO that?" and keep on and on and on just make me want to smack them in the mouth. No one said you had to eat it so eat the food on YOUR plate, shut the **** up, and let me enjoy my food in peace.

    The wife is the same way. She cooks with little to no salt, so when I pour it on my food she goes off on me. :bang:

    Try this:
    The next time someone tells you that salt will kill you as you're applying it, slam the shaker down, shoot them a stern look, and with a growl, say, "When?!?!" :evil: :rolling:

    After today's experience, time wasters at the gym.

    I don't have a problem with people who are a bit slow/unfit/fat or anything similar. At least they are there trying to change things, which is more than quite a few people bother doing. What does really irritate me is when groups of people spend large amounts of time slouching across machines they haven't done anything on while they gossip!

    The group in the gym today included three ladies who had taken their handbags in with them, a man in a thick jumper and another man who was in formal trousers and a shirt! Funnily enough, not one of them risked even breaking into a slight sweat. :rolleyes:

    Regardless of ability level, if you go to the gym, please put some effort in! Catching up in the latest gossip can wait until you are out of the gym and no-one is waiting for you to move your lazy behind so they can use the machines!


    Okay, deep breath time.

    Decados, I would argue that your experience is a small symptom of a vastly more common problem -- that is, the problem of people who have absolutely NO CONSIDERATION for other people. They don't think that their actions might impact others, they don't care about the feelings, time, problems or resources of others, and in the final they don't care about anything but themselves.

    People like this deserve to be shot. You should have used your superior physical strength to beat the living snot out of them, especially the dork in the formal pants.

    No need for physical violence. A pointed "Excuse me, are you quite done?" would suffice. It's amazing what the right words and the right tone of voice can do.

    For a guy with Tourette Syndrome, having to sit still can be annoying. With my back bad, having to sit in the wrong seat or even any seat when my back is really bad.

    I was just thinking about that very issue on Friday. I advocate a slow and torturous death for people who do this on purpose.
