28571 Minor Rants and Piss-Offs, Mark VIII
It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

Apparently it's a meme from last year that goes "Stop, don't touch me there! This is my no-no square!" and the kids in my daughter's school have just found out about it and keep singing it.

I never managed to figure out how to get VideoPlus+ codes to work to record late night TV shows. I'll never have the opportunity to correct this and desoite having access to way more media now than then, the memory will forever haunt me.

Someone (here on .gs, if I remember correctly) recommended MotionBox to me a long while ago and I haven't used YouTube any other way since. It's not perfect, but certainly better than intrusive advertising and recommendations.

I just... really don't care about 'true crime' (as opposed to what, false crime?), and it seems like one of those videos The Algorithm picked for everyone for some sinister reason. I asked in a group chat I'm in and practically everyone has also been hounded by it.

I'm one of the few people in the world who doesn't have the problem. The way I manage it is that my youtube history is carefully curated to only feature music with the history button only temporarily put on for a specific song I like and want to hear more of.

Oh fuck, even I've got it now. I look forward to seeing all the dipshit youtubers now copy the format to try and trick the algorithm.

Literally yes. I assume the term is popular just because it sounds better than "non fiction crime"

We've got crime and true crime, history and historical fiction, science fiction and science fact, erotica and erotic memoirs but there's no such thing as "true romance". I suppose that says something about human nature.

I was going to say something about the various Take a Shit style magazines, but then again a lot of those stories stretch the definition of "true" somewhat. And to a lesser degree "romance"

Thompson & Fucking Morgan. They've sent me multiple plug plants now which have arrived either totally dehydrated or with their stalks snapped. Half the time they don't respond to emails and when they finally do, they offer to send replacement plants in a month. What am I going to do with their surplus stock of underdeveloped plants, running into the end of the growing season? This is taking the piss.

For the past two weeks, every other day or so, there's this absolute cunt on a dirtbike with seemingly the mufflers ripped off because it's fucking deafening. He will just go up and down and up and down outside mine. I live on private land on a cul-de-sac, so I have no fucking clue why he's doing it. Cunt.

I also live in Beeston, but the suburb of Nottingham rather than the suburb of Leeds, so I share the feeling of being left out.

One of the lads on the Discord used to live almost across the road from me and we only found out after he'd moved back to Norn Iron, which is really unlucky.

Temporary Staffing have just decided that they can't pay me until next friday, and I've already run out of money from my previous assignment, so now I can't afford to travel to work. They should have set everything up a fortnight ago, and only sprang into action when I reminded them. This is going to put my assignment at risk because it's going to look like I'm not committed to it. Fucking useless cunts.

Sometimes I'll order a takeaway when I've got some work to do. I tell myself it'll be quicker than cooking but unless I'm ordering McDonalds it will always be late. The guy I've got now has even lost signal so I can't find out where he is.

The cheeky fucker tried to claim he'd delivered it. Just ordered from Maccies and they didn't have any fruit bags (dead healthy me) so they let me order whatever item I wanted off the menu for free as a replacement.

Glad I'm invested in Maccies, we should do away with democracy and just let the clown run things.

I keep noticing more and more websites that are completely (or almost) AI/algorithm managed. I understand some of the sites are huge, but it's still frustrating because these things are still not much more advanced that a novelty chatbot from a few years back beyond the scale of what they're doing, as best as I can tell. Having said that I still find myself thinking, from time to time, "was this page put together by someone with English as a second language or a robot?", which I'm not sure really counts as passing the Turing Test.

For example eBay just suggested I list the packaging for an item I'm selling as "blister pack, bottle or syringe". The item in question is a motherboard.

Sorry about that. Modern sampling technology means that it's now cheaper to hire one bloke to do a complete orchestral arrangement than it is to license a crap pop song. It's a miracle of technology, but it's also quite annoying.
