Nope, entirely intentional and, may I say, equally entirely merited.  Cheesy

Well said!  For what is Faith in anything without aversion?

It ain't faith to begin with... it's fairweather-friends.  Opportunism.

A small bug--spider-like, I guess, but really tiny--may have just crawled into one of the holes in my phone. The power jack I guess. I'm not sure. A one-time occurrence probably isn't a pet peeve, but suffice to say if this is the way insects (or arachnids, to be more accurate) intend to behave henceforth, this will certainly become a pet peeve of mine.

My first order as President of Earth is to dump enough mega tons of DDT or whatever on the planet to permanently eradicate all insect life -- except for butterflies and honey bees.

Ladybugs can stay.  So too can grasshoppers, those are cool.  And crickets.  Crickets put me to sleep.

It's amazing how short the list is.  Out of 2 zillion species, there's only a handful that are worth keeping.  Insects are truly awful, awful things.

I'd like modern science to admit there exists a gravitational force that pulls things that I drop on the kitchen floor, underneath my stove.  Always under my stove.

It's time to declassify that sh-t.  We need to know.

Anyone who says "axed" when they mean "asked" should be eliminated where they stand. Preferably slowly and extremely painfully. Same goes for anyone who pronounces "nuclear" as "new-kew-lar", but more slowly and painfully.

The expression "the truth is somewhere in the middle." I don't have a problem with the people who use the expression, because it's so pervasive, but it's also largely untrue and so frequently (but largely unintentionally) damaging.

"Good music". People answering with that when you ask them what kind of music do they listen to.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Misuse of apostrophes. Or apostrophe's, as many would write it. I hate that.

What's up with "back in the day."  I wouldn't call it a Pet Peeve or anything... I just don't get why people accept something they know is silly and use it.  Does it help them they feel like they belong -- belong in an increasingly stupid, backwards evolving society?



Shouldn't it be "back in the good old days."  That's what people used to say, I believe.  As in... "back in the good old days, we said sh-t like 'back in the good old days.'  We just used good language, so people could understand what we meant."

How 'bout back in the night?  Does that work?  "That's how we used to do it back in the night.  B-tches."

I think everyone is always annoyed at everyone else's slang. Slang is always stupid (except to whoever uses it). New, old, whatever.
