I have Auld Lang Syne stuck in my head.

Flu that spreads to your inner ear causing labyrinthitis.  All the fun of flu but with the added bonus of vertigo, headaches, deafness and excruciating ear & jaw pain.  Tell you what, vertigo combined with muscle fatigue/weakness makes for an interesting experience when trying to walk.

Let's not forget Mojang.

I've no fucking idea how, but apparently the new update for NoScript has caused it to go full retard. Trying to access the list of scripts on any given webpage causes it to reduce the size of my window, of all things. I wouldn't mind so much if not for the fact that good script blockers for Firefox seem to be rather few and far between, especially nowadays.

I have to say, technology not quite working as it's supposed to is one of the most frustrating things in the world.

I love it when updates and "fixes" break something even more.  I'm looking at you, Bethesda and NetherRealm.

Petty as fuck, but I've got a package I'm supposed to receive today...and it ain't fucking here.  The mail prick is over two hours off their normal delivery time and I'm starting to get a bit irritated.  They've got 37 minutes to get this shit here before I get properly angry.

And, its in the rental office.  Which is closed until Monday.  Great.

Just imagine what 6200 House of Representatives members would be like. Paul Ryan would have a stress seizure.

People who call for the repeal of the 17th Amendment and/or the ratification of the Congressional Apportionment Amendment, because:

1. The former would return the choice of Senators to state legislatures, which would allow for corrupt political machines to control the US Senate and turn state legislative elections into elections for Senators, without consideration of state-level issues.

2. The latter would expand the US House to 6,293 seats. (Not making that up; I ran the numbers.)

Firefox had an update that fucked several of my add-ons, including Noscript.

Art Vandelay - I am a little bit miffed, and therefore you all have to hear about it.

I had the same thing happen. I had to switch from Greasemonkey to Tampermonkey for all my scripts, and find some replacements for crap that wasn't even compatible anymore. Quite the pain.

Yeah, me too.  There's a fork browser based off of Firefox called Waterfox that still works with all of the add-ons I had.  Might be worth a look for some of yours.

They changed the fucking new tab page on mobile, too.  No more reference images for the my "Top Sites," and the fucking titles of the pages are truncated to, like, a dozen characters...and there's no fucking way to change it.  Sure, its fast, but good holy fuck, why'd they need to fuck the interface in the process?

People on Facebook who post stuff from Unilad (and similar sites) like it's a reliable source, or some kind of trusted peer-review science/political journal and not just a collection of un-checked click-bait garbage.  I swear to fuck I'm going to punch a kitten if I have to explain to the same people how logic,"consider the source" and basic 5-second fact-checking/research work one more fucking time. They even keep falling for the exact same types of "stories", especially those obviously-not-true-seriously-are-you-a-retard-or-something stories that you get about China.  How many fucking times do I need to tell you, and prove to you with literally less than 5 seconds worth of research, that 99.9999% of those stories are made up horse bollocks? Why do you not get this yet ffs? Argh!

I'm an idiot, and I understand these things.  WTF is these peoples' excuse?

My English class is full of mental infants.

To give you an idea, I'm one of the few passing students in a class I only take to move on up.

There are around six failing students, in a class where the homework involves fixing capitalization mistakes, verbs, adjectives and noun possession. I could accept not being good at something that is your second language. What I can't accept so easily is people failing transparently because they never do anything.

I had to look over someone's paper last week and it looked like something an r/TheRedPill user would vomit up - it was about why men were not marrying any more, and involved ranting against the seizing of "male spaces", men "not wanting to be uncool or emasculated by their shrieking wives", and "the media" portraying married people as losers.

There are like three students who sit at the back, all giggling and chatting amongst themselves, and constantly disrupting class with no consequences in sight.

One student asked another to copy all of the homework for her, and acted offended when I reported this transparent plagiarism to the teacher playing it off as a joke.

The failing students seem to see me as a Jerk Jock who's out to torment them incessantly...an impression I'll admit I am considering playing up. The super-chatty students usually sit in one location, and I've been thinking of having my workout bag take up one seat, and my school bag take up another.
