What are some all-American activities that are beneath you?
Responding to morons
Yo complete your snift, you have to include NASCAR.
Flushing the toilet in public restrooms.
Having to be the one who has to put the quarters in the video box at the corner porn store.
R5 I have to disagree. Some of the nicest people are racist in America. You just don't get invited to their dinner parties.
While very popular, I never thought of golf as all-American.
Nascar, Indy 500 all car races are white trash for days.
On a lonely night, might be nice to have some white trash beneath you. You know, just a change of pace, whatnot.
Running around in the streets chantin, "USA! USA!"
Line dance, 2 step any group dance. Last to straight wedding I went to I though I was at some country version of That 70s Show.
Some bitch across the table tried to guilt me to dance with here cus I was gay. I said I had a bad back, Oh the pain, the pain.
Really bitches, you have a husband or boyfriend sitting right next to you, drag his ass out there to look like a douchbag.
Monster Truck Rallies
Greased Pig Scrambles
Game Meat Cook Offs
Bitch please, your are not a wench, your a whore there is a difference.
Black Friday Sales
That is one show I have not seen any gay people on yet. Gay men just cant live that way.
Then you haven't seen them all, r21.
Several gay men have been on Hoarders.... and not as concerned family members.
Hell, there was 1 young gay guy who couldn't even throw out dog hair that was all over the rug.
Damn R23, you called me out. I dont watch all of them. Still, it dose get seem to motivate a spring cleaning every time.
I have been to all three, the bachelor parties are the worst.
Fat ugly strippers show up dangling loose floppy boob on your face and you are supposed to give them some kind of tip for that pleasure.
I would rather mop up infected cum from the local bath house then do that again.

Was R2 posting in English?
Clam Diving, both kinds.
Instant Scratch-Off Lottery
Setting one foot in a Walmart
Listening to Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, et. al.
Reading stories about low life black entertainers
Tail gate parties
Clearing brush (FU George Bush)
Hundreds of others
The Red Onion
Killing animals for sport.
How is its a sport if you have a gun and the opponent dose not?
Kill that deer or lion with your bare hands, now that would be a sport.
Taking a dump in a store.
Anything with vampires or zombies
Going to law school.
Grand Ole Opry
I love golfing and I'm from a good family.
Okay, I can see why I love the DL so much because I agree with almost everything posted. Except I flush toilets in public, like potlucks and (embarrassed to admit) will once in great while watch reality TV, if I'm ready to face scorn from my partner.
Black Friday Sales.
Lottery Scratch Tickets.
Family Portrait Studios.
Old Country Buffet
Television Shopping Channels
So-called patriotic displays
Going to movie theaters - they are filled with low class and poor people.
Wearing Western-themed clothing (i.e., cowboy boots, bolo tie).
Tailgating and pretending to give a shit about sports
Sports, both ones you're forced to play in school and the ones that make TV programs late on Sundays.
Goin' to the game
Fist pumping, shouting Woot, woot, woot, USA, USA, USA!
Eating fast food
christmas...not so much [italic]beneath me[/italic] as the [italic]least[/italic] wonderful time of the year.
I agree with R45. However, I've only been near enough to three of them to have the chance to participate (two lottery tickets in my life, and QVC). I'm so sure the rest are beneath me, I've never even gotten close.
Putting those stupid flags on my car to celebrate my favorite sports team.
Waving my hands in the air, swaying, weeping and praying to "Jeez-us" at the megachurch.
Buying Thomas Kincaid (RIP) prints to decorate the den.
Dining at Hooters with the boys.
Date raping drunken sorority chicks.
Joining the military.
"Support Our Troops" bumper stickers
all other bumper stickers
Oh yes, I can't do that bumper sticker thing or magnets on my refrigerator. I'm not sure why the bumper stickers made me think of refrigerator magnets, though.
Some bumper stickers are magnetic. Those "Support Our Troops" ones are.
Dirty, shitty, county fairs.
Maybe that's why I thought of them, then.
The whole troops and police and firefighter obsession.
I always explain to people that for ever West Point graduate you have 50 idiots who could barely finish high school in the military. They aren't doing anything special, they are a bunch of followers. They add nothing.
Police and firefighters are those same morons in high school who picked on 'the different' kids and acted like assholes. Once in awhile they'll do something brave and/or heroic, but it's isn't in their nature to do those things.
Why must those activites necessarily be BENEATH you? Why can't they just be not your thing?
Some of you are so fucked up. You can only see the world in terms of hierarchies.
R68, don't go pissing all over "some of you." It's the OP who created the "beneath you" phrasing.
You're fucked up.
R68. Hierarchies are good for society. They provide structure. Unfortunately, most people believe themselves higher up the ladder than they will ever be.

You mean... they're UPPITY???
Displaying the American flag outside my house, on my car, or anywhere else.
Owning a gun.
Watching reality TV.
Going to all you can eat buffets
Watching American Idol and voting for personal favorites
Everything is beneath me except snuffbox collecting and my two cats, Botticelli and Mr. Proust.
Irish Folk Dancing
Any Theater in the Flyover states
No, R74. Everything is actually ABOVE the average Datalounger, given that most currently reside in their mother's basement.
It's not something beneath me. But I never get it when I see someone who is so into college sports. I mean, unless you are/were a student of that school, is there any other good reason for you to care so much about it?
Living in America.
85 comments. All Progressives. Think about it.
So, anything normal upsets the effeminites.
We should start a thread: What are some all-DL activities that are beneath you?
Something American that is beneath my contempt is clearly R87
But R60, what about the HRC equality stickers? With just an equal sign. That is the only bumper sticker I've ever used.
I agree with almost everything in this thread, though.
R59 thanks for the laugh.
For me "some all-American activities that are beneath" me are:
yes, bowling -- even as a kid I couldn't get past wearing shoes that hundreds of other people already sweated in recently -- and dorky looking shoes at that.
watching Jerry Springer. I know sometimes it can be fun, but a whole hour of people yelling using bad grammar? I get a headache.
eating maraschino cherries. These aren't real cherries but full of carcinogenic chemicals.
insulting people with indirect insults like "is it hot in here or is it me?" if they stink etc. No, I either shut up or tell them they stink in a nice way in how I would want to hear it. Mostly yeah, I shut up.
[quote]And on top of that, those feet and leg motions really scare me for some reason.
Any kind of reality TV
Restaurants that serve "buffets" 7 days a week
Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Chili's, and other chain "restaurants" like them
I do like bowling once or twice a year with a group of friends just for laughs, but the rest of the stuff on this thread I would definitely agree with.
House "parties" where they sell stuff. You know, Tupperware, candles, etc. Ugh. I know more about this stuff than I care to thanks to all the cubefraus I work with.
Walmart. Never. Ditto for Sam's Club.
I never eat hot dogs or most fast foods either. Especially Taco Bell. Never. Just. no.
Domino's Pizza. gross.
While most of the activities here aren't things that I enjoy, the phrase "beneath you" is far more revolting and facile than any of them.
Bitch, please. Just because you dislike bowling, it does NOT make you the new Edith Wharton.
R84 From what college sports fans tell me they think college games are not as fixed/commercial/corrupt as pro games. I can't tell because all sports bore me to tears.
Dancing with the Stars
America's Got Talent
Watching TV shows showing teens having accidents falling off of their skateboards.
Buying designer knock offs.
Accepting unfunny British comedians like Russell Brand and Ricky Gervais.
Watching The View.
Wearing saggy pants.
Worshipping the Clintons.
[quote]Eating McDonald's. Pedophelia.
well, I'd add misspelling to the list
