Things I'm Sick Of On The Internet

  1. Bacon. Sure it’s OK in real life, but the way it’s talked about on the internet you’d think these people hadn’t heard of steak.

  2. Zombies. Fuck! No more zombies.

  3. Video players that aren’t youtube. They all load like it’s 1999.

Zombies are gay, I hate that shit.

careful - they may hear you…

  1. As an 18 year old, I feel like I’m one of the few people in my social circle that still writes everything out without the use of acronyms or short forms. The farthest I go is like lol, ASAP and FYI, and those were used before they were constantly used on the internet. It ain’t EZ 2 reed dis shyt all da tyme, nomsayin’?

  2. I really don’t see why bacon and zombies are the target. I mean if you are going to cal those out, you may well include, cats, dogs, babies, and more recently the gym memes.

  3. And nowadays a lot of the content on the internet is just hating on other content on the internet.

You’re typing on a keyboard, write out a complete sentence with real words and proper grammar.

DOES THIS THREAD EVEN LIFT?

Worse still, they have pony porn:

Women writing an attention seeking Facebook status like: ’ omg I can’t believe it’ and when someone asks them what’s wrong they say ‘don’t worry’ or ‘inbox me’

I’m with you on the grammar as well, ‘definately’ pisses me off and I’ve noticed people using ‘we’re’ instead of we’ll arrrggghhh that drives me mad

Also girls sucking tampons to get famous

  1. It was already mentioned, but needs to be reiterated for emphasis: CATS.

  2. 90% of YouTube. I’m not against YouTube, and I do enjoy it from time to time. But I don’t enjoy sifting through nonsensical crap for 40 minutes before finding something good. The real problem is that most people don’t think before they click “upload”.

  3. PEOPLE TYPING ONLY IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

  4. Words from the internet making their way into our real life lexicon. You know the world is going to Hell when you hear someone say “lol” instead of actually laughing.

  5. Internet tough guys. Win your battles with logic and reasoning, not bullshit machismo that you don’t possess in real life.

  6. People who update their Facebook statuses every few hours about inane bullshit. Are you really delusional enough to think that anyone cares about every single time you take a shit or buy a new purse? On the flip side, there seems to be an association between these people and being massive train wrecks, so some of them can be kind of funny to follow.

  7. #thosemotherfuckinghashtags

Especially when these words make it to new entries in the Oxford English Dictionary. No, motherfuckers, an internet “word” that will be forgotten in 10 months does not need to be added to the dictionary.

So most of T-Nation?

People that take pictures of every meal they consume and post it on facebook/twitter.

Personally, I’m just breathing a sigh of relief that “YOLO” didn’t win.

Indeed true about using hashtags ( I only found what that was a few weeks ago) to make jokes. #oldmandontknowhashtags

More facebook peeves…

Using “super” as a modifier for fucking everything “I’m super busy” etc.

The word “awesome” is overused.

Girls saying “Yay!” about things they’re excited about.

I think I just have to unfriend all females on facebook…but then I’m giving up on lots of bikini photos.

Ahhh… Do you mean this in the literal sense?

I mean, does this really happen?

I’m confused
