What Would You Get Rid Of?


#1

What thing would rid the world of if you could?

I am not talking about changing the human condition, like getting rid of suffering or fat people, or removing free will. I am talking about things that grind on your nerves and occasionally your soul.

I would get rid of robo-calls.


#2

The "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time" song.


#3

This one judge in this one county I've been dealing with. Complete fucking moron.


#4

Piers Morgan


#5

Politics who forgot that they are working for me, for us.


#6

Canned spinach. I hate canned spinach.


#7

Haha, something we can definitely agree on.


#8

Shitty music playing in gyms. I swear I feel my estrogen levels climb and weights become heavier when I don't bring my ipod to cover up the shit that comes out of those speakers. I realize musical tastes differ, but at the least silence >>>>>>>>>>>>> the mix of top 40/dubstep shit/country I have to put up with.


#9

Department of Homeland Security

or

"Defending" the US by fighting foreign wars.


#10

Oh wait, here's a better one: BATFE. Fuck those gun-smuggling, cartel-arming hypocrites.


#11

Puerto Rican midgets.


#12

Hey! What's so bad about midgets!


#13

If we can't say stuff like AIDS or world hunger or something like that, I would have to pick those groups of factory workers with no teeth and poor personal hygiene who always win huge lottery jackpots. Why can't a nice middle class, educated couple or individual win one of those?


#14

Because people who get how shitty the odds really are tend to play less often?


#15

You gotta think of a lottery ticket not as a chance to win, but as a ticket to dream about winning. A dollar for some nice daydreams seems like a good deal, especially since a dollar can't get you much of anything concrete.


#16

I would get rid of religion.


#17

I would also like to get rid of the sun newspaper, which worryingly is (I believe) the most influential newspaper in the country (England, U.K.) apparently despite the fact it promulgates a load of bullshit daily which many, many, people absorb as the gospel truth...


#18

Assholes who seems to have enough "strength" to put their plates on the bar but not enough "strength" to then re-rack them !


#19

I saw the emphasis on the Puerto Rican part maybe it's just that genre of midget??


#20

The smelly guy at the gym, ya know, the guy who smells so bad he could singe the hair off your feet.

<------ has no hair on his feet subsequently.
