What does it take to make you furious?
or cooking a particularly complex dish and start freaking out - likelihood of getting furious is quite high.
I define furious as an elongated state (more than a minute) of being in the upper echelons of anger but not quite at the summit. So probably about once or twice a year outside of the above situations.
Because I'm a horrible, angry man :(
Guy I work with. Always him.
Standard furious - 5/6 times a year
Largely too apathetic.
Not sure that I miss the fury, it wasn't a good time.
Definite heart-attack candidate. I'm not mean though it's usually at myself.
I did get a little bit annoyed by the term 'Cultural Marxism' the other day though.
To describe anything that isn't foaming at the mouth corporatism, fuck that.
as in it is literally a term dreamed up by the right to collectively demonize various social justice movements from the 90s and has nothing to do with actual Marxism.
that's what gets me there's literally no evidence of such a term being conceived by the Frankfurt School, every time it's used it's linked to ideas that they might have thought up but twisted beyond recognition, it almost seems like a classic example of strawmanning.

like you suddenly realise you've been clenching your fists and gnashing your teeth for about a minute at people on the tube or in the office and you hadn't noticed?
not a word I really use you see...
I have never found it really solved anything. Some people in work go fucking apeshit at things like their computer not booting up properly, they start shouting "for fuckssssssssake!" and clicking and banging their mouse around. Get a fucking grip people. The only time it does work is when telling someone to fuck off, when asking politely does not do the trick.
but sometimes it's good to blow off some steam
but working with someone who does this is genuinely stressful. Acting like this in work has a really shitty effect on colleagues.
i find it unsettles people more if you never lose the rag and always come across as totally composed and regardless what happens having the look of a person that knew that was going to happen
No idea why.
I was last angry last weekend. My partner dunked a new paintbrush in a pot of paint, right passed the top of the bristles onto the metal.
not passed you fucking moron.
i get pretty angry when i'm saying something important and my boyfriend winds me up by repeating things in a silly voice or whatever and making it seem like he doesn't care enough to listen. i'm fairly certain he just does it to wind me up. nothing makes me as angry.
and probably the reason i'm without a gf and lonesome.
it's not mimicking me or anything or belittling what i'm saying
he just starts muttering something completely different like words to a song or something
was always hugging them really tightly so they couldnt move and just keep saying "Awwww I love you too" until they started crying with frustration. I am also without gf and lonesome
I'ev seen my grandad, uncle and more recently my brother just go mad over the most inconsequential of things, and it's ultimately fruitless. Pretty chilled out kinda guy these days.
not an angry person at all
at seeing my colleagues getting angry over the most pointless, inconsequential things. It's almost as though they need to seem to have an opinion/overdone reaction to EVERYTHING.
Don't be. Let that shit out, it's not healthy.
Might have to go and unleash it on someone in a minute. Preferably on someone that's done nothing wrong.
Seems like an awful lot of effort, that anger lark. Can't really be arsed with it.
