What are you angry about? Let's use this thread to vent.
I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!
I'm angry about my family. How I had to start with nothing while my siblings got everything.
Tell us more, r3. Vent.
I'm angry at Russia. Went there frequently in 2006 and it was a blast. Now it can be a blast up your ass, literally.
I'm not mad at you, OP. I'm mad at the dirt.
I'm angry with Republicans who are corrupt, heartless, evil monsters destroying this country and democracy.
I'm mad at myself because I'm the only reason I'm stuck in a life I don't want to live when I could be so much more & so much happier.
I'm angry at the demonisation of intelligence. It's now more acceptable to be dumb as a stump while any sort of intelligence is viewed with suspicion. When did the world become so fucking stupid? People used to aspire to doing something with their lives, now they aspire to being on a reality show with a fake tan and a cunty attitude.
One of the neighborhood children just tried to murder me! I was sitting in my room, applying nail polish, and one of them fired a rifle at me! I must get the children before they're kidnapped!
Why are all the speakers on NPR so awful? They all sound like they are reading. Why can't they talk like normal people?
Is speaking like a normal person beneath these pretentious fucktards?
What R1 and R7 said.
Now I don't have (as much) to write that I'm angry about.
You can't wear white after Labor Day!
What the fuck are you doing?
I am just exhausted, but I agree with R7 and R9.
Welfare queens and their Section 8 haciendas. Food stamps for perfectly healthy people.
R9 needs to change her tampon.
I am angry that lying has become socially acceptable. It's not only politicians and bankers who lie; I noticed blatant lying from my landlord, my neighbors... people at work.
It's required of you not be genuine and honest in today's world. Otherwise you look stupid.
It's hard to be honest sometimes, yeah.
I'm angry that JANBOT is still here, after most of us here have FF'd her ass repeatedly.
I am angry at the over-reliance of the word, "like", in common parlance and prose of today. It is infuriating and tells me that many people out there do not listen to themselves speak.
I'm angry that my paycheck this week from Dionne Warwick just bounced.
I'm angry because my back is itching and I can't reach it.
I am so ANGRY. Bear with me, this feels like a way to get this out. My step grandmother just died. She fed me art books and classes. We were told our college educations would be paid for, no question. It wasn't put into a trust.
Deciding to go to art school? "I am not paying for a Southern kindergarten for finger painting."
I graduated on my own. Thank you Mom and Dad for your help, but it was my fucking factory work that paid the bills. I worked my 12 hour shifts to have the small paying job that I do. But I get to create every day, and people pay me for it. Thank you.
I am pissed at how Major League Baseball is treating A-Rod.
I'm sorry for your loss R24, and I admire your dedication to your art. Unlike you I had no backbone and gave up mine.
I'm angry at my current living conditions. I'm a college student, and after my summer classes ended, I had to return home for several weeks. I absolutely despise my bigoted, hateful, redneck-infested shithole of a hometown. On a positive note, this break has only reaffirmed my desire to break free of this place permanently within the next few years. Never was there greater motivation to study.
I'm angry that the years have gone by so quickly. I feel like I shut my eyes at 30 and woke up like Rip Van Winkle. WTF?
Totally agree with R18
Yes, I'm angry.
I'm angry that Karma is taking such a long time to kick the butts of people who deserve it! esp my mother! that bitch stole my inheritance and is living the high life while I toil away without health insurance and dental insurance!
I'm angry that the Kardashians are still putting their schnozzes in public.
Dannon stopped making lemon yogurt. It's the decline of Western civilization.
I was raised by a mentally ill narcissistic woman who abused my bro and I from the day we were born. We aren't talking about someone that looks m mirror to see how pretty she is. We were always walking on eggshells and walking into an ambush every day .....my life was hell..I will never get of that evil bitch. The anger never goes away
Fuck you you nasty old bat
Am I angry? Yes. About 80% of the time.
You know, I put aside so much precious time to try and help people improve their lives, but do I get any thanks for it? I just can't understand the ingratitude, but I'm more disappointed than angry.
I'm angry at my neighbor who, at 2:30 a.m., set off three fireworks, the illegal kind that shoot into the sky.
I'm angry because I'm on a diet. Being a grumpy bastard at the best of times I'm now growling at strangers and plotting murder at work. Also I can't stop thinking about ice cream, which I don't usually even like that much.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
