Guys who seriously think that girls are really just gold-diggers and are actually after their money. Now I agree, it's fun to joke about, but th ere are REALLY guys who think this for real. I think it's a nice excuse for why these guys can't find a girl who's legitimately interested in them. But of course it can't be due to your personality, can it? It must be that they're all gold-diggers. On the off chance that you actually DO attract gold-diggers, you are sending out some seriously messed-up signals. Perhaps blurting out that you drive a BMW while rubbing your Cartier watching within 15 SECONDS of meeting a girl is not the best strategy?

When you wear a white dress shirt, praying that you will not go out to lunch, but are of course invited out to Italian food, where you spill a huge glob of red sauce on your shirt. Too personal of a story?

People who get promoted into positions of power and begin speaking in typoical BS, cover-your-ass language. Everyone has met people like this, and you always wonder if they were ever young (or fun). They're the people who say things like "Well, even if that were possible, it's not how things are done." They love using the word regulations, and they love bureaucracy. And I hate them. I know a bunch of people, even CEOs, who have risen to the top and still keep it real--they tell it like it is, instead of being machine-like automatons. PLEASE BE REAL HUMAN BEINGS AS YOU CONTINUE IN YOUR CAREERS

Organic foods, which are more expensive, go rotten faster, and have a fundamental prommise ("they're better for you!" that is far from conclusive, or even close to it. There is a nice strawberry patch near my house and I bought strawberries there a while ago. THOSE DAMN THINGS WENT BAD IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS!!! And finally, I don't need to prove that I am a good person by buying organic and smirking at others eating Cheez Its. No thanks, organic foods.

People who think they'll make it big once they find that one big idea. I've written about this in detail: The Myth of the Great Idea

Parents who make their kids take Chinese because "it's the language of the future." You know what--I know people at Stanford who do this of their own free will, too, so let me not just blame the parents. This is so absurd. It's like putting one of those propeller hats on a submarine because you think it will improve its speed. If you are worried about competing in the global economy, try to get good at what you do and meet people. DON'T TRY TO LEARN A LANGUAGE OF A CULTURE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND JUST SO THAT YOU CAN TALK TO "THOSE PEOPLE" ON ONE HYPOTHETICAL DAY. GOD DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL!?

Post-hoc analyses of written works that are completely WRONG, yet sound sophisticated enough to pass muster and even sound insightful. I've written things where people analyzed my work, saying it took an amazingly sophisticated postmodern look at viral-marketing techniques. I don't even know what post-modern means!!! Ok, the whole last part about people ever reading my stuff is a lie, but you know what I mean.

This will be a long comment, possibly as long as the original post, but I'm mad as hell and I'm not holding it in any longer. In the words of Al Bundy, "Let's rock."

Significant others of musicians who cannot stop promoting them and fashion entire identities around their relationship. I saw this on a Facebook profile. "Favorite Music: Tom Petty and _____. Guess which one I'm currently sleeping with?" Good for you. Now gimme a bag to barf in.

People with more than adequate good complaining about how genetics have deprived them. I'm talking about girls with C's or bigger complaining that their breasts are too small, guys who are six feet complaining that they're too short, etc. Hey, Mr. Pitiful. Try playing competitive football at 5'7", then we'll talk. Jerkoff.

Dr. Phil. Apart from the fact that he is an amateurish pop psychologist who got rich by telling undersexed middle-aged housewives what they wanted to hear, he is now the subject of some controversy with disgruntled customers who said his weight-loss plan didn't work. To those customers, however, I have this to say: THE JOKE IS ON YOU FOR BUYING WEIGHT LOSS GUIDES FROM A BIG FAT GUY. (I also hate people who make moronic decisions and then feel victimized).

When people appear to be active on AIM but are actually away, and have a message set up that can't be seen ahead of time.

Styrofoam coolers. They are impossible to wipe clean, break easily, and make horrendous noises when scratched. I had to use one recently for fishing. Let me tell you, folks, that cleaning fish guts out of porous styrofoam is a shitty Saturday evening.

Being grilled for not inviting someone somewhere, especially when it wasn't your place to do so. I had a "friend" tell me I "lied to him" because I didn't invite him on a day trip with another friend - and his family! Even if this were appropriate, it's the people organziing the trip who are in charge of invites - but he wouldn't dare question them, so I get to be the whipping boy. GUESS WHAT: NOT EVERYONE GETS TO BE INVITED EVERYWHERE.

These days, it seems the word "as" has replaced "because". This makes you sound like a precious little twit. Example: "I will not be at the meeting Tuesday, as I will be recovering from electrolysis of the perineum."

The super-pain-sensitive skin under your fingernails. I got a cut here from a nametag pin, and boy, does it hurt. It would be much better to have a cap on your finger than a nail, to protect against cuts. So much for "intelligent design", Kansas.

If I have to choose from a voicemail menu to begin with, why should it take eight rings to get me there?

Nachos that are served on a tiny plate so you basically have ten real nachos on top of a stack of plain chips.

Also, those movie-style nachos with the plastic "cheese" dip. Horrible.

Saran wrap. I used to make an effort to cut it from the roll in a way that would prevent it from all clinging together into a little pile, but now I've just accepted that the untangling phase is unavoidable.

I'm slowly compiling a list of traffic hatreds, and this is one that's been happening a lot lately: When someone actually uses their turn signal when approaching an intersection and then the genius SUV driver behind them decides to speed up and pass them in the turn lane. THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO KILL PEOPLE.

Actually, the fundamental promise of organic foods is not that they are necessarily better for you, but that their production doesn't degrade the environment in the same way that the production of conventionally foods does.

For example, by not using toxic pesticides, organic farmers reduce groundwater pollution.

In an effort to lure ramit out of hiding I'm finally posting on his site. I'm finding it difficult to think of anything I really hate since I finally got a chance to chat with the guru himself, so here are the Things I Love: 2005 Christmas Edition. Taco bell, strong coffee, the feeling of being back in my own bed after travelling, snickers icecream bars, high heels, angelina jolie. God how I love you, angelina jolie. Thank you for Gia. Board games, macs and the whole apple company. Oreos, sushi, chunky peanut butter and talking to myself. Things I hate... how everyone in LA says that everyone else is fake. ingrown toenails. I hate that I love fashion magazines because they all make me think that I am too short too fat and too poor, none of which are the case. I hate how everyone want a massage and noone wants to reciprocate. People who whine, which brings me back to you people. Stop your bitching and moaning and post more things you hate instead of talking crap. Or at least make it entertaining for the rest of us voyeurs who hate to post. Ok I think thats it, oh yeah Ramit sethi is one sexy bitch. fatfish out.

see for facts as opposed to BS -- organic food IS better for you -- whether it spoils faster is a trade off you have to put up with to reduce the toxic load to your body...keep in mind 1 in 3 women in the US will get cancer in their life time and the guys are royally screwed the number is 1 in 2...I personally would rather die in my sleep then rot from the inside why not take some modest precautions where you can to reduce the carcinogenic load that your bodyis hit with each day??? Glib is fine -- Glib and smart is even better

Reducing Exposure is Smart
The more that scientists learn about the toxicity of pesticides, the more questions are raised about the potential toxic effects on people. Pesticide manufacturers often portray these unresolved scientific issues, and the uncertainty that comes with them, as safety.

Statements like, "There is no conclusive evidence of harm to humans" from exposure to pesticide X are intended to mislead the public into believing that exposures to pesticides and toxic chemicals are without appreciable risks. This is not true. Absence of knowledge is not proof of safety.

Ignorance Does Not Equal Safety
There are two chief reasons why it is so difficult to link human harm conclusively to toxic chemicals like pesticides.

First, most safety tests done for regulatory agencies are not designed to discover whether the low dose exposures to pesticide and chemical mixtures that we all experience are safe, particularly during critical periods of development. In general, the government demands, and companies conduct, high dose studies designed to find gross, obvious toxic effects. In the absence of the appropriate tests at lower doses, pesticide and chemical manufacturers claim safety because no harm at low doses has been conclusively demonstrated (or even studied).

Second, because people are contaminated with trace levels of literally hundreds of chemicals, it is generally impossible to attribute a specific health effect to any one of them. There are several worrisome exceptions, however, including chemicals like PCBs, mercury, dioxin and lead, where low doses at critical periods of development have been shown to have significant permanent adverse effects on learning, behavior, and development (CDC 2001, CDC 2003, EWG 2003, ATSDR 1999, ATSDR 2000).

Tiny Doses Can Be Toxic to Children
Beyond the narrow confines of regulatory agencies, independent research scientists are beginning to understand the subtle ways in which small doses of pesticides during critical periods of fetal development and childhood can have long lasting adverse effects on people. It is well established that the fetus, infant and small child are typically most vulnerable to the toxic effects of pesticides and toxic chemicals (NRC 1993, EPA 2003, FSA 2003). The metabolism, physiology and biochemistry of a fetus, infant or child is fundamentally different than an adult.

A host of vital organ systems continue to grow and mature from conception throughout childhood. At critical periods of developmental change, these systems are susceptible to the toxic effects of pesticides and toxic chemicals, both individually, and in mixtures. Many organ systems, for example the nervous system and brain, can be permanently, if subtly damaged by exposure to toxic substances in-utero or throughout early childhood that, at the same level, cause no measurable harm to adults (Jacobson 1996, CDC 1997, NRC 2000).

The endocrine (hormone) system is perhaps even more sensitive to toxic exposure than the nervous system, and over the past decade, enormous effort has been put into the study of how pesticides and toxic chemicals interfere with normal endocrine signaling and function. A significant body of research in animals now shows that ultra-low doses of pesticides and toxic chemicals on critical days of development can cause changes in hormone function and effects on organ development and function that often only appear later in life. A growing number of these studies show that low doses at a susceptible moment of development can cause more of an effect than high doses (vom Saal 1997, Alworth 2002, Hayes 2003). This is particularly relevant to childhood and fetal exposures via food and water where the timing of the exposure is at least as important as the dose.

Many pesticides are now considered "endocrine disrupters", in part because the term is something of a catch phrase for chemicals that cause a variety of changes in normal hormone signaling. Some better known examples of highly toxic endocrine disrupting pesticides are DDT (and its metabolite DDE) which are now known to exhibit much of their toxicity through anti-androgenic (de-masculinizing) properties (ATSDR 2002), vinclozolin, a heavily used fungicide that is also anti-androgenic (EPA 2000), endosulfan, a DDT relative with estrogenic properties that is found more often in food than any other pesticide (EPA 2002, USDA 1994-2004), and atrazine, a weed killer with broad hormonal activity, that contaminates the drinking water of about 20 million people in the United States (EWG 1999, EWG 1995).

Today scientists know much more about how pesticides can change critical hormone signals in the human body in ways that can have potential life changing effects. Yet in spite of these advances, there is little agreement on how much endocrine disruption is too much, and how much is without harm. The same is true of immune system effects and to a lesser degree effects on the developing nervous system.

As science advances, public health and environmental officials are faced with growing knowledge about the hazards of pesticides, but uncertainty about precise mechanisms and nature of the adverse effects. This conundrum is straining a regulatory system that has become overly dependent on scientific certainty when certainty is increasingly difficult, and even impossible to achieve.

Rather than preventing exposures and putting the burden of proving safety where it belongs, on pesticide and toxic chemical producers, most pesticides remain on the market with no threat of regulatory action. EPA is increasingly mired in complex and arcane scientific arguments, mostly generated by chemical companies, that serve primarily as delaying tactics to keep pesticides and toxic chemicals in the marketplace. With no end in sight to this stalemate, the consumer is wise to minimize exposure to pesticides whenever possible.

Doesn't the government regulate these chemicals?
Yes, but far too slowly. Further, it's important to remember that the government said that highly toxic pesticides like DDT, chlordane, dursban and others were safe right up to the day the EPA banned them.

The EPA is in the process of upgrading pesticide safety standards to comply with a 1996 law (The Food Quality Protection Act) that requires protection of infants and children from pesticides. Several highly toxic pesticides have been banned or restricted under the law, but others have either escaped controls, or have not yet been subjected to them. Pesticide makers, food companies and agribusiness groups are fighting strict application of the statute, and so far have succeeded in weakening several key provisions.

Even the best application of the 1996 law will not protect the public from the combined effect of multiple pesticides. Although some of the most dangerous pesticides have been removed from the food supply in recent years, overall, the number of pesticides found on the most contaminated fruis and vegetables has decline only slightly. If you eat in this country, you eat pesticides.

Are these chemicals bad for me?
Pesticides are toxic by design. They kill bugs, weeds, fungi, rodents and other "pests." That's why the government regulates them--though not stringently enough. The risks you encounter when you eat them depend on a number of factors including the toxicity of the pesticide, degree and form of exposure, your age, genetic susceptibility, and exposure to other toxics, including other pesticides. We believe that:

1. You have a right to know what's in your food.

2. The risks from many of these contaminants remain unacceptably high, especially for infants and children

3. The government can and should take steps to dramatically reduce the number and amount of toxic chemicals, including pesticides, from the food supply.

Even worse, are people in low level positions determined to use company regulations as a means of reassurance that their lives mean something, ANYTHING (to see an example of this, visit your local train station). I mean GET AN EDUCATION AND DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE WITH YOUR LIVES! DON'T QUOTE COMPANY PROCEDURE AT ME - I DON'T CARE! I KNOW YOU'VE SPENT THREE WEEKS IN "INTENSIVE TRAINING" TO LEARN THIS SHIT, BUT I SPENT THE LAST FIVE YEARS IN A REAL SCHOOL!
