1, Wearing sunglasses indoors. Or on the tube.
what a silly silly thing to say.
you have the right to have your hair how you like it etc.
as you can probaly guess already, i straighten my hair. i just don't want it curling skywards at the sides thank you.
i definitely think it looks better straightened. for me. obviously it's not for everyone. long long male straightened hair looks bad i think.
its nothing to do with being a twat... and in no way is it vain.
but in that sense everyone is vain. it's nice to look nice and have others consider you to look nice also! thats just the way we're wired up.
is vain though, its just a part of human nature. id say vain is going beyond that.
i could go with that.
what, like straightening your hair?
my hair waves, and there is no way in hell my hair looks better naturally. and is it vain if you were to straighten your hair?
to judge these things by gender is highly sexist and quite backward.
judge it by the individual, not the gender. such sweeping statements are just plain silly!
a dress then? you're ok with that presumably?
then i would wear a dress! thus far the inclination hasn't taken me. i have no problems with men in dresses. like i have no problems with women wearing jeans.
i'm not saying every man should straighten their hair, but we should have the choice and not suffer immediate scrutiny just because of gender.
or a statement of your opinion?
'i dont think it looks good'
on here as fact, dumbass
you could click my name and see my hair if you like but im sure ill live without the approval of someone like you :)
as much as i care what you approve of...
If you'd seen how bad certain men's hair (ie mine) looks when it isn't 'done', then you clamour for some straightening, gel, wax, ANYTHING.
Leaving the house without some sort of styling product on my hair will never happen.
means more boys and girls do it, it's just a change in our culture in a way. i don't see any problem with it, just as the increase in mens face care etc has increased.
although natural hair looks nice too, i guess it just depends how one feels whether to straighten or not.
'mens face care'
see thread title
you pretty much feel like the boss.
Basically, hair-straightening on guys = really really really terrible.
this is wrong. it makes me angry that this issue is judged by gender.
hair straightening, on certain people, whether male or female, doesn't look good. and on certain other people, it does look good!
LIKE YOUR FACE!
ah i should have listened to that judgemental idiot
i heard it debated on radio 1 recently and i just got really angry about it.
sarah cox said it was 'un manly'. which got to me because the bbc shouldn't allow sexism like that to be broadcast. how is this sort of innate sexism going to be rid from our society, how will the sexes ever consider themselves equal when there is such a notion as 'manly' or 'womanly'.
Boys are simply better. Always will be.
i agree that they are different and their different brains and reletive strengths and weaknesses can be utilised, but it's more about the treatement of each sex.
i wasn't saying that you were calling it unmanly, but that's one thing that really 'got my goat'.
and again, i disagree that it looks universally terrible. and i would love to use my hair as an example.
i dunno,look on my myspace or something, imagine it with stupid curly/uneven bits at the sides/back, and then investigate the pictures of my hair that has been slightly straightened.
open your mind, you know, reconsider.
seriously dont worry what she thinks, shes being narrowminded and silly!
you just lost.
You can cite sexism if you are a woman being paid less than a man. If you argue it when people dislike men straightening their hair, my friend, you look like a nob. Get some perspective.
i don't see why i can't do that, it seems sexist to me, judging something based on sex.
same as saying black people shouldn't straighten their hair really, and people might find that offensive because it's racist.
response again. You can say it. But you sound like a nob. It's just not an issue to either get too upset about, or to throw the word sexism about.
it's just something that irks me. if society is aiming more and more towards sexual equality, then views like these are simply hindering the process.
you just can't take advice, can you?
you're just calling me a nob for some reason.
probably because you're unconcerned with the issue.
this gets better and better.
i literally don't understand.
i'm not for one minute saying that this SPECIFIC issue of men straightening their hair is a big social step for humanity. or is even an issue.
i'm just saying it is a way of highlighting certain gender prejudices in society which i disagree with it.
to come over as smug - sorry if that is the impression - I was just amused that you got so angry about something I see as meaningless. Its not something to worry about. Shall we leave it there?
i was arguing this sexism issue over hair straightening. it's just something i don't like.
i don't like sexism, on any level. not just on stuff like equal pay etc.
i'm not truley angry about it. just frustrated that you seemed to be telling me that something that matters to me, doesn't matter at all. which i find quite affronting.
the Emily Pankhurst of hair straightening?
this argument is beyond ridiculous. citing an equality principle over the right to straighten your hair? ignoble age!!!
vain stupid cunts who should go do something useful. doesn't even matter about the sex. twats.
by your logic, people shouldn't shave, cut their hair, wear nice clothes or use soap. How 'vain' of us all.
i wrote a song for him:
www.myspace.com/girlscoutbeyondfundraiser (happy birthday mattmatt)
men straightening hair is entirely OK.
wearing sunglasses is OK where ever you want to do it. but i suppose not on an everyday basis, maybe if you're on the way to a gig and you feel/look super cool or something.
it sounds too much like 'boner'. i can't take him seriously
As in: "I went out last night and got waaaaasted". The situation is made a million times worse when the person that was supposedly incredibly drunk then lists everything they had to drink: "We started off a Jane's house, yeah, and i had a bottle and a half of wine, then we went to the first pub and I had 2 shots of tequila and a double vodka and coke, then we went to club and I had 4 pints of beer and 3 more double vodkas" etc.
2 points to note:
1)If you were as drunk as you make out you were, you wouldn't be able to remember so lucidly what you had to drink, so you are probably lying.
2)Getting really drink, though it can be fun, is not cool. Bragging about is the worst thing you can do. You are not the first or only person to go out and get drunk, anyone can do it. I can drink til I throw up, it's not special and it's not hard. Millions of people do it every night. Come back and brag to me once you've climbed Mt Everest or found a cure for cancer.
And yes, sun glasses in doors pisses me off too. The same goes for people who wear scarves in nught clubs.
and i noted again how boring drunk stories are. and they just sound pathetic.
I finished writing all that it actually became about number 10, but the point still remains!
at some point, someone on this thread would make me laugh aloud. I am not sure I can comprehend what I would do if I saw someone wearing a scarf in a club.
A guy at work...
"I've been out since 1, I'm proper smashed, I'm on my tenth bottle of Bulmers, that's good isn't it? I pulled last night, only broke up with our lass yesterday afternoon, this one wore glasses, it was proper mental. Couldn't believe it me. Glasses for fucks sake."
I don't know why he thought kissing a girl with glasses was such a weird thing.
find men are more likely to brag about drinking, but girls definitely do the listing thing more often. I JUST CAN'T STAND IT!!!!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!1
people bragging about taking drugs
equally annoying, except people expect you to be more impressed i think.
and i'm going to keep making this same shitty point until you people stop annoying me with your stupid brainwashed compartmentalisations
it's a drink.
i let you off for that gem
and yeah harder-drug-boasters can be even more annoying. or just sad, like the 'I can get away with doing smack at weekends' thing (for how long? and at what cost?)
i probably looked like a twat tho
money they have succeeded in losing on the horse racing in the space of one afternoon.
most definitely this!
the general themed, which was hinted at in my main post, is bragging about stuff that ANYONE can do. Do something unique, then get back to me.
being 'call me dave' cameron
being a jobsworth
saying things are 'jokes' when you mean 'funny'
bragging about fighting (or in the case of a fellow who was talking to me at the busstation one night bragging about punching someones girlfriend)
highlight of my life
with point one, agree with point two, have never encountered point three, and definitely agree with point four.
if you need to wear a whacky hat at a festival to signify its time to have fun, theres definitely something wrong with your personality
A girl asked me for a hug at Download a couple of weeks ago.
I was actually going to say yes until I saw that she was covered in wet paint, mud and had food ALL OVER HER.
my friend did it at reading last year, i disowned him.
is not worthy of a hug.
everyone likes hugs!
or the like.
so why free hugs?
and with some people its more implied
It's usually a really fat man wearing a thong.
who just does it all the time as an excuse to hug girls/boys
i love you thommo
it does make you look a bit like Peter Cook in your profile. So you're excused.
on my profile?
why thank you thommo! that's quite a hefty compliment.
i was admiring him just yesterday.
i AM Peter Cook!
- tshirts with big neon writing on them
- wearing ANY neon
- coloured jeans on men
- boys straightening their hair
if i was worried about what other people thought i wouldnt have bought red jeans etc.
Something is like something else 'on acid.'
Any bloke under sixty wearing a trilby.
Being 'ironic' in liking something.
i wear my sunglasses at night.
when there isnt blistering sunshine is twat-like
i was just quoting the popular electroclash hit 'Sunglasses At Night' by Tiga & Zyntharius!
Electroclash >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 'Neu' Rave
the Klaxons are quite sweet. They try.
but, they're not rave. IN ANY WAY. WHATSOEVER.
keep with the times!
Well, I saw a girl wearing them. So I said to her, "You're quite pretty but those shoes are awful. I mean, they're seriously bad." No amount of backtracking would get me in that girl's pants.
So, in conclusion. Twatdom:
Stupid plastic/rubber shoes that make girls look like a duck.
And men making homosexual type observations toward girls wearing duck shoes.
Love that film, but the ending is just so ridiculous it makes me laugh....
- wearing glasses with massive frames [i mean really, really, cover-half-your-face-for-no-apparent-reason, just completely fucking ugly, WHAT ARE YOU DOING massive frames - the kind that make deirdre barlow frames look small]. especially if you have 20-20 vision.
i have noticed a lot of this lately.
- being nasty/rude/belittling to people and then saying 'can't you take a joke?' when they get upset
- looking over people's shoulders when you talk to them
- a liking for mayonnaise
i have tested all of these scientifically. they are all airtight signs of twattery.
instead of yes
'yah yah I totally understand what your saying'
People asking me what I listen to when its obvious we don't share musical tastes then going 'never heard of them so they can't be that good haha'
Not all people who like mayonnaise are twats, Im not that bad (I hope) :(
in general, in a manner which implies that they expect you to impress them somehow.
"Erm... mid-2005 post-folk-ghetto-bass-core. almost exclusively. You?"
Go me! Saying yah is a sign of good breeding, everyone knows that.
definitely. 'Doing' your hair a bit, a drop of wax, a comb etc. fine. 15 mins to look like a knob who's made far too much effort. Not fine.
who always enters the office talking on his bluetooth. He's such a bell.
I bet he's only pretending.
Trying to make you all think he has friends.Twat.
type conversations. He's trying to let us know how IMPORTANT he is.
thats even worse.
-Bragging about your workload/pressure you are under to make admin people feel insignificant.
Personalised licence plates
"Look at me! I MAKE so much money I can afford to splash 3 grand on this plate which almost says my name with some of the vowels missing! SO FUCK YOU JACK_EL_BISCUIT! FUCK YOU!"
If you read between the lines.
who get them illegally spaced so
'LOOK MY CAR SAYS GRIFFO THATS MY NICK NAME ITS WORTH THE FINE'
(griffo btw was a real licence plate I just came across it in work)
We are now at Defcon 3: Maddox-Wannabe Invasion underway
People who get compassionate leave from work, on full pay, then come back and list what that did - exposing the fact that they had a jolly.
"I had a fantastic time in Lebanon - I went wakeboarding, I hiked up to Tripoli, had a few beers..."
Posh people who pretend they are not.
A personal peev: people who look down on you because you work for a living, as opposed to being an 'artist' on the dole. this may be london/shorditch- centric.
I get looked down on for studying art.
-People who spend stupid amounts of money on a haircut
That's fine. Money is stupid and for spending as you wish. Worse is squirreling it all away as if it's the most important thing in the world and never having any fun.
and being all smug about your fucking ISAs.
£60 on a cut and blow dry when you can go have lots of fun wit that kind of money.
then you can have it!
if you finish Uni and get a job, you're a sell out. If you temp you're somehow not quite selling out (despite the fact you are still working the exact same hours but getting paid less).
To the point of massive discomfort / argument / fight ^
the phrase '110%' when describing how much effort someone is going to put in to something. 'That is a fucking physical impossibility, you fuckface moron' is my stock reply to that
go on guess?
in the high 140's?
I REALLY agree with you. And a mere 100% just doesn't cut it.
You could say, 'this tomato is now 110% bigger than it was yesterday'
or 'this stock has grown by 300% in the past 10 years'
just not for probabilities or for fractions of a given object where the context makes it clear that at most one is intended.
which has been multiplied by 100 for presentational purposes.
Nothing more nothing less.
Sometimes the underlying quantity is implicitly restricted to the range [0,1], sometimes it isn't.
ALSO: on food packets, when the ingredients on stuff like beef jerky is:
beef (150%), salt, etc
this doesn't make any sense! why? why?
but yes, dubious way of phrasing it
isn't an impossibility. It's very, very possible.
is so wrong. I'm not sure i could look my boyfriend in the eye if he straightened his hair every day, eurgh. You probably look just fine without straight hair. What IS everyone's obsession with straight hair? It doesn't make you look any better, it just makes your hair straight.
all of these things worn together: massive sunglasses, clothes 3 sizes too big for you, pashmina, ugg boots, bag that cost 3 times my yearly income.
people who wear fur
skinny jeans and pointy winklepickers worn together
people who aren't willing to take anything with a pinch of salt
people who aren't gangsters wearing hats like this http://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/images/mmannion/2006/01/27/p12700011.jpg
and one brown one (i think)
is that the sign of being a gangster?
being a bit tubby and posing against a lavender wall is the sign of being a gangster. Who else could get away with such a thing?
who clearly aren't any good at art and are only doing it cos they don't know what else to do.
the self righteous and overly politically correct
people who put kooks lyrics as their msn names
but the kooks in particular
the more it annoys me. Why bother doing an art course when you can't even draw?!
and the less talented they are, the more pretensious they become.
'men expert' trying to make it OK for men to wear anti-ageing creme. It's really really not.
when you are neither arabic of chinese
A torrent of "fucking hell", "fuck sake", "you slow cunt" and similar rudes when playing baseball, with their headphones in, on a PSP.
And today, on the #3 from Hedge End, I was a huge twat. :D
(Apologies to anyone within earshot of my cussing when I grounded out to lose by 1 run)
you still live in southampton.
oh wait.. i live in chichester.
you still win.
about yer guyses ages... who look the rock 'n roll part. Dyed hair, tattoos and piercings 'n all that rot, band t-shirt (usually semi-lame like AFI), Chuck Taylor Converse etc etc...
...that know absolutely almost nothing about rock 'n roll music.
I don't mind they like My Chemical Romance or the 6578 clone bands like them. What I do mind is that they think they're "into" music because they have the right haircut. I want to scream, "Twat!"
who have 'a haircut'
there's a difference between having your hair cut, and having 'a haircut' or style. one is a regular occurrence, the other is a twatism. in fact 99% of attempts to look cool and stylish are pretentious twattisms.
changing hairstyle makes you twat?
But I like changing my hair i get bored, I don't think it makes me a twat
(many other things do that :P)
utility, the other is about trying to be stylish. i really dont understand how people can have time to think about their hair so much.
I might as well get a nice one. I don't do it to look cool I do it to feel better about my otherwise terrible appearence.
