    Why are you taking it so seriously? How did I spoil the thread? You can carry on discussing I aint stopping you.

    I really hate when I try to run Half-Life 2 @ 1280X1024 on my Geforce 6100 at 10 FPS GRRRRRR!!!

    And then I put my X800GTO, and runs at a comfortable 60 FPS :) (Vsync on)

    What I hate is when there is bad weather. I use Directv Satellite service here in the US and whenever there is bad weather with high winds and alot of rain. The only thing that shows up on the TV is a message stating "Searching for Satellite in Tuner 1 and 2" I hate it:(

    ...AMD

    people who yak on their cell phone while driving. I don't mind on the highway or a straight street, but at intersections and stop and go driving it is a real aggrevation.

    in general, I don't have a problem with people talking on cell phones while driving... i do however get quite annoyed by the ones that get so involved in their phone conversation that they forget they are driving! :mad:

    we could make a whole thread dedicated to bad drivers ;) lol

    Here's my short list:

    People who wear those little hands-free ear phones and then walk around everywhere yacking to themselves in public and then speaking LOUDER because the mic of the phone is above their cheek bone. Yes, sir, you are so very important with your little ear phone sticking off your head everywhere you go.

    People who can't learn grammar and spell properly on the Internet. "Sup dude u 8 yet im strvng". Or ten mile long posts with no paragraphs or punctuation. I need not give an example :) (Foreingers who don't speak good English can be excluded.)

    People who think they are cool.

    People who come to YOUR store to get parts/service, and then proceed to tell you how much they will pay, how long it will take you, what you need to fix it; and end it by saying they can fix it themselves, but don't have time.

    People with no common curtesy (is that a dieing personal trait in America?). I HATE arrogant people, prideful people, and know-it-alls.

    And of course I have to end this with a driving one: I hate when people ride on my **** when I'm already going 10+ over, and likewise hate getting stuck behind the ones going 10+ under for no reason at all when the road is quite open.
    I hate it when I am the one in a hurry, and spend my time flying up the road and passing a bunch of people, just to get hit with a light and then get stuck behind a truck and see all the people I passed going past me. What a waste.

    I hate lousy drivers (mostly stupid teenagers except me) who think they are cool becuase they are hitting 45mph in a school area with their 'rice burners' when they have no idea how they work and only have them because they are still not adults
    I do hate arrogance, pride and ignorance
    I have vs topics such as apples vs windows
    grr

    I hate two things:

    I hate when people disagree with me. I mean, I'm always right! (I'm kidding if you didn't catch it,) I just don't like when people dissagree for the hell of it, even if they have no way to prove thier point.

    I also hate people who drive thier honda civics and think thats its the coolest car in the world because they have a hole drilled in thier muffler and a cheap body kit.

    What about a Mitsubish Eclipse? Or an Acura RSX?
    Those are excluded I hope.


    I hate when I hear a totally absolutely retarted song on the radio and think that the artist made millions off the CD.
    I hate that our "entertainers" get paid SO much more then the average Joe. Joe who is the one who made the car they drove, who packaged the food they eat, who speds their hard earned money for a ticket, who sweat and bled over their everyday for-granted lifestyles. All so they can make a bazillion dollars off us.
    Why can't they just make LESS money, and give us cheaper DVDs and music and CDs?

    I didn't mean I dislike imports, the mitsubishi eclipse is one of my favorites :approve:

    I just don't like when people "dork them out," and then go around and think they are a big time street racer, but have no actual performance to back them up.

    Actualy, artists don't make that much money (hek they're lucky if they can release a second album) only a few dollars per cd sold.. Its all the record companies that make the bulk of the profit, unless the artist owns his own masters etc....

    I hate when petrol price rises to insane amounts then suddenly drops at the next service station down the road after you've filled up...

    Doesn't really make me mad, since mostly it gets filtered to its own folder. But it got brought up in another discussion I had today:

    lol, love it.

    I hate that one wacko extremist can create some rediculous lawsuit and then somehow changes our underlying goverment's behavior. Creates new laws, etc... While we attempt to be so "politically correct" and not "offending" anyone. God forbid we offend someone.
    Well what I say, if you don't like the way our country works, GO LIVE SOMEWHERE ELSE AND SHUT UP!
    We don't have to bend over backwards to make your sick practices legal.

    Hmm, was that a "I hate" or a rant? Oh well.

    People in check out lines in grocery stores who seem surprised that they have to pay---get the money ready!
    Then some think that there's a prize for coming up with the exact change----there is no prize!---just pay and get out of the way!

    what makes me mad, is that they took out pluto, now we freakin got 8 planets in our solar system.
    the US government spent 3 billion dollars on a freakin satalite thats going to a freakin dwarf planet.
    also, freakin loud music that lasts until 5 in the moring.
    can't f*ckin go to bed.
    Little kids cheating in class on tests.
    A girl says "i have nothing to be ashamed about on my report card." For goodness sake man, you cheated on all those tests, to get that f*ckin grade on that report card. Everybody else needs to study to get that same grade.
    Same girl gets a 105% on her grade in the class.!!!

    There.
    Thanks for letting me vent my anger.

    I hate when people barge into these forums thinking they know everything, more specifically people thinking that Pentium D's are superior to Athlon x2s. There should be some sort of proficiency test or something...hahaha. WOW I definitely am a geek! :)

    What also makes me mad is backstabbers, they will get theirs!

    Actually, the price to value ratio on pentium D to athlon x2 is pretty close.
     
  22. sellmesanity

    sellmesanity TS Rookie Posts: 268

    Yeah, im not saying the Pentium D is a ripoff, im saying the x2 is way better in terms of it's design.
     
  23. twite

    twite TechSpot Paladin Posts: 1,083

    I personally agree with you, i would choose an x2 over a pentium D, but thats a matter of opinion. For example, many would choose a pentium D 940 over an athlon x2 4200, even though their the exact same price (newegg).

    sellmesanity TS Rookie Posts: 268

    Your opinion and my opinion differ from those who favor the Pentium D. Tests have shown that the X2 is superior, and that is not opinion, it is fact. They have many articles from different tech sites that have benchmarks and architectural explanations. YEEEEE

    Arguing about hardware in a thread not intended for it has now been added to the list.
