Why?Those things aren really that expensive(when you divide them by the number of tickets sold),and will stop people from not going to cinemas because of this,thus will make more sold tickets.Besides,managers are helples about this because they can only apeal to the viewers not to use their phones,they cannot force them to,unless a law is passed allowing them that freedom.So its goverments fault,not theater managers.

People who don't put the cell phone down when parking or turning. I understand you want to talk when you drive... fine. But say "hold on" and make your turn before you cause an accident.

PEOPLE WHO TRY TO TALK TO YOU WHILE THEY HAVE HEADPHONES ON! Ohmygod could you be any more annoying.

Dogpassers. People who ride in the merging lane to gain spots and then cause the accident that REALLY causes the bad traffic.

People who don't even bother to remember your name Nothing could say "I only care about me - I'm just talking to you so I can talk" more.

Pls, we had a cd-walkman hooked up to some computer speakers playing in the back of the class loud enough for us to hear during the last year of highschool and the one time one of the teachers noticed the noise a claim that it came from outside fixed it.

Ah,but my school is a special one,and my class had the second highest number of students of all 6 classes with whooping 23 of us(the highest in my generation was 26,I think).It really isnt easy to hide something like that,especially since we had very perceptive professors(except the chem one,in whose class we wreaked terror :devil: )

Rofl I come from a town so small there was 500 in the whole school. We had like 12 in a class do to the size of the town :). Of course there are problems with this, I mean hey you do anything and the whole town knows about it. Like the time I gave a guy a black eye. All the guys in the school wouldn't step within 20' for a year after..and the poor guy..well you can imagine.

Frequently? It happened to me maybe once in my whole life, and I've been driving for 18 years already (including 5 years around Montreal on a daily basis).

It happened to me thrice in the past two months :disagree:

You must be doing something amazingly wrong 8|
I've never experienced any other car bumping into mine in Odense.

Maybe you should change that to "women here shouldn't be allowed to drive" :devious:

Oh, but they are funny! :?

Once upon a time, I read "Poo" on my menu. Of course, in Portuguese, coconuts and poo are written like this: coco and cocô. There was poo juice as the day special.

I do it all the time here, are I? In Portuguese, because I don't know if English speakers twitch when listening something similar, listening somebody say: 'a gente fumo' or 'nóis vai' is so damn fun. It is something like: 'we lot wento' 'we goes'.

Seeing 'chega-mos' is also really funny. Like: 'we arri-ve'. Because of some words in Portuguese like "matá-lo' using object "lo" to write: 'kill him' as if it was 'kill-him'.:devious:

But it would be really funny if you could understand how it sounds like if we passed our sayings to English. Abnormal things like this would happen: "Tea with me that I book your face." lol or "Between, my well" because of either the pronouncing or the meaning. First one means: "Let me handle that to release you from 'something'". "Come in, my dear".
:D

One of which I was just reminded this morning:

I find it very annoying when I grab a chocolate chip cookie, only to find, after taking a bite, that the chocolate chips are actually RAISINS. If that isn't one of life's great disappointments, I don't know what is.

Now, I have nothing against raisin cookies. I actually like raisin cookies....but only when I know going into it that I'm going to be eating a raisin cookie. If I think I'm getting a chocolate chip cookie, and I end up eating a raisin cookie, I feel cheated and pissed off at whoever wasn't respectful enough to LABEL THE COOKIES AS CONTAINING RAISINS AND NOT CHOCOLATE CHIPS.

I swear, it should be an international law that raisin cookies should be only baked with blue food coloring in the batter. That way you know. Blue cookies: contains raisins and not chocolate chips. And if you bake a raisin cookie without blue food coloring:
