    People using "ask" as a noun. I know it's technically correct, but it's suddenly gone from rare and infrequent to a daily thing in my life. Especially in business/work settings, for years now people have been using words that are more frequently verbs as nouns, and vice versa, to sound sophisticated.

    Pretentious, even!!!

    "Ask" seems to be the primary example du jour.

    That one drives me crazy. Along with people, well beyond the age range where it might be tolerable saying stuff like "my bad", even that phrase is so dated. <_< Okay, when you were 20, maybe all right, but you're 50 now, just stop.

    I just watched a huge variety of different news coverage over multiple networks and local channels, both from the USA and Canada. Whether man or woman, they all went on and on about their coverage of the "inogerration". What is going on?

    Or the Shawn Mendes song on the radio where he's always saying a girl deserves "a gennellman".

    In the last few weeks, I've been having repeated issues with annoying "Ad" pages popping up repeatedly on my Google Chrome Browser. Also, and almost certainly related is the redirecting of my helpful GC Extensions page to the pop up "Apps" page, which includes 4 Google related items, in the form of their respective symbols (IE: Gmail); plus the All Czech Search viral engine!

    After two prior successful attempts to eradicate the above, at least temporarily, the latest round of Google Chrome uninstall/reinstall; running AVG and Malwarebytes has failed to fix the problem this time around. Out of sheer desperation, I downloaded a "recommended" Reimage Repair malware detector, which of course turned out to be a "we'll detect the problems, but you have to pay for us to fix them" type of deals. Disgusted, but not surprised, I then ran my Free Malwarebytes once again.

    So far, it has picked up 142 Threats, with all but two of them connected with Reimage Repair! I am so sick and tired of these bloody goddamn bogus online repair programs, which anymore seem to be the first, and often ONLY options that come up in Google searches for solutions, these days! :angry::angry::angry::angry:

    Well, after numerous recent headaches with pop up issues, combined with the apparently unresolvable Extensions tab being redirected to the annoying viral "Apps" page, I've decided to give up Google Chrome - For now! In the space provided by Google Chrome after uninstalling of their program is performed, I basically stated that the GC programmers need to get their !@#$ together in devising a workable solution to the latest insidious attacks on their browser (I'm not presently experiencing this with any of the other ones that I currently use!)! I for one, am sick to the back teeth of feeling forced to resort to downloading so-called "solution" programs that almost never work, at least not without having to fork over $$, which I will NEVER do!

    For now, Microsoft Edge is essentially taking Google Chrome's place, where I'm concerned!

    CHEERS! :)

    How about this? I just bought the Blu ray of "Inferno" and attempted to open it, only to find the case had one of those pieces of plastic blocking the space on the edge where you put your two thumbs to split the case open. What is the purpose of this thing? It is only on some cases and has to be lifted each time to open it. I usually break them off, but then you have rough tabs of plastic scratching your thumbs each time!

    When you have the case open, you can fold that tab inward and it should latch, keeping it more out of the way.

    Yeah, I think they are basically a loss prevention tool that is designed to fold away once the package is opened by the purchaser.

    The double latches are what really annoy the heck out of me! Are the DVD/Blu-ray case manufacturers that worried the side snap mechanism won't be sufficient on its own? :rolleyes:

    Without having any clue regarding INFERNO's merit (Or lack thereof?), your line cracked me up! :lol:

    My pleasure! I just finished watching it this past week and 80% of it was tedious. For me anyway...

    One post was just deleted for being political in nature. The next such incident will have harsher consequences!

    I never "blind" buy, so I had seen this film in the theatre and although I did not think it was the best of the series, I enjoyed it enough to purchase it. You purposely missed my point to make a cheep joke.

    On the contrary I got your point. I just found the film more annoying than you did is all.

    I'm annoyed that a movie I was planning on seeing tomorrow was pulled from the schedule but I guess that was a good thing. It's saving me from wasting money on a more than likely terrible movie.

    Oh, and I received a refund on that T-shirt.
