Yoinked from r_caton: Unpopular Opinions Meme

It's been a while since I've done one of these and thought it was interesting.

1. A selection of television programmes you do not care for.

All of them. We have no TV. There are two notable exceptions: Fringe (now tragically defunct) and Criminal Minds.

2. A selection of musical artists you do not care for.
  • Nickelback (just like everyone else).
  • Rappers who talk about killing police or beating on bitches and hos
  • Anyone who sacrifices beauty at the altar of shock or volume.

3. A selection of celebrities you couldn't care less about.

  • Charlie Sheen
  • LiLo
  • Kanye West (I'ma let you finish but you're a douchebag, bro.)

4. A hobby you “don’t get”.

Extreme rock climbing

5. A habit you find disgusting.

Got too many of them to complain about others

6. Something in school you really liked doing that everyone else bitched over.

Vocabulary tests

7. Your favourite household chore.

Vacuuming.

8. Popular video games that make you go “meh”.

All of them. Except the Myst series, which sadly no longer functions well, even in Virtual XP. Haven't tried Virtual 98 yet.

9. PC or MAC?

I love them both. I use PC's. If I were rich, I'd have a killer Mac setup next to my PC and use them both for different things.

10. A sport you don’t like, for whatever reason.

American Football (unless the Packers are playing).

11. A sport you really like, for whatever reason.

TaeKwon-Do. I have a black belt (a very rusty one, but I earned it just the same).

12. Television programmes you love but have got shit for liking.

Star Trek TNG. I'm a devotee, and the Goodwoman of the House sat through all 7 seasons with me, (10 stars for her) but she fails to see why I find it appealing.

13. Musical artists you love but have got shit for liking.

Can't think of any here.

14. A hobby you have/find interesting that other people bother you over/make fun of.

Extreme gastronomy. Most folks don't like smutto.

15. A habit you have that other people bug you over.

I'm a lousy time manager. "In a minute" pretty much means "when I'm damned good and ready." Determined to get better in this area.

16. Something in school you hating doing and it felt like everyone else loved.

Sports of all kinds.

17. The household chore that makes you want to shoot your own face off.

Unplugging a clogged drain.



18. A selection of video games that you enjoy that perhaps you really shouldn't.

Duke Nukem 3D. Still plays nicely in Virtual 98.

19. A celebrity crush that maybe even you don’t understand.

Sandra Bullock. Beautiful, talented, feisty, intelligent.

20. Free rant on whatever grinds your gears at the moment.

Bullies. People who go out of their way to be ignorant to retail and service workers. Nigerian scammers and other people who make their living from deception, like people who hawk useless weight loss products (“Açaí Berry / Colon Cleanse" is a good example.) Our entire government and its thralls - president, congress, courts, and mind-numbingly incompetent "uncivil servants."

In general, life is good - but there are some things that torque my cork, and I'm glad to have had the chance to let off a bit of steam.

(Wish I were feeling better, because this is something I'd like to allocate more of my brain to than I'm capable of the moment. Why is it that the answers to these only come when you're not actually needing to answer them as a question?)

1. A selection of television programmes you do not care for.

The so-calld new Dr Who series
Home and Away
NCIS

2. A selection of musical artists you do not care for.

Neil Diamond.

3. A selection of celebrities you couldn't care less about.

Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman

4. A hobby you “don’t get”

Hunting.
Fishing.

5. A habit you find disgusting.

Smoking.

6. Something in school you really liked doing that everyone else bitched over.

Computers (Ha! It's almost the other way around now!)

7. Your favourite household chore.

Cooking.

8. Popular video games that make you go “meh”.

World of Warcraft... now.

9. PC or MAC?

Haven't had enough experience with Macs to give a fair answer, although I've always hated the insistence of Apple to use only 1 button on mouses (mice?) and iPhones.

10. A sport you don’t like, for whatever reason.

Most of them.

11. A sport you really like, for whatever reason.

Golf is OK, though I have never played properly.

12. Television programmes you love but have copped flack for liking.

Probably The Bill.

13. Musical artists you love but have copped flack for liking.

None

14. A hobby you have/find interesting that other people bother you over/make fun of.

At one time that would have been my writing computer programs, but again that's become commonplace now.

15. A habit you have that other people bug you over.

Not being in good health.

16. Something in school you hating doing and it felt like everyone else loved.

Sports of all kinds.

17. The household chore that makes you want to shoot your own face off.

Either cleaning the toilet, because I hate germs, or scrubbing either the shower recess or the kitchen sink & bench because no matter how long and hard it's never enough.

18. A selection of video games that you enjoy that perhaps you really shouldn't.

Virtually any game that:
a) Doesn't provide a learning experience
b) Doesn't have a saved progression (IE everything starts out the same the next time you begin playing and you have achieved nothing with your time spent)
- Guilty on both of the above

19. A celebrity crush that maybe even you don’t understand.

I guess that would be Zigzag because she's not real. With any actress I would be able to define my reasons.

20. Free rant on whatever grinds your gears at the moment.

The idiot near the building using power tools in the vicinity of a residential tower block at 6:50pm.

1: A selection of television programmes you do not care for.
I don't actually watch much TV to have an opinion on this.

2: A selection of musical artists you do not care for.
Justin Bieber,
"Lady" Gaga.

3: A selection of celebrities you couldn’t care less about.
Charlie Sheen,
Lance Armstrong,
Any rapper. (since they don't really qualify as an "artist" in my book)

4: A hobby you “don’t get”.
Boat-in-a-bottle making.

5: A habit you find disgusting.
Scratching oneself in unmentionable places in public.
(smoking I don't have a problem with, because the smokers don't have a choice as to what's in their cigarettes. It's the tobacco companies I have problems with)

6: Something in school you really liked doing that everyone else bitched over.
Math. It was the only thing I felt I could do well.

7: Your favourite household chore.
What with how bad a job my mom did of teaching me how to do chores around the house, I don't have any.

8: Popular video games that make you go “meh”.
World of Warcraft,
Duke Nukem,
The Sims.

9: PC or MAC?
Neither! Linux!
Though if I had to choose one of them, it'd be Windows.

10: A sport you don’t like, for whatever reason.
American Football. Don't understand it in the least.
(and don't bother trying to explain it, either)

11: A sport you really like, for whatever reason.
Ice Hockey.
(I'm Canadian, what do you expect?)

12: Television programs you love but have got shit for liking.
I don't share my preferences around much, so nobody gives me shit about them.

13: Musical artists you like but have copped flack for liking.
KennyG. Apparently he's not considered "real Jazz"...

14: A hobby you have/find interesting that other people bother you over/make fun of.
Crochet.
(I think I need to get back into this again)

15: A habit you have that other people bug you over.
Self-deprecation.

16: Something in school you hating doing and it felt like everyone else loved.
English.

17: The household chore that makes you want to shoot your own face off.
Working in a freezer for extended periods of time.
(it's not the frozen fingers, but the damned smell that I have problems with)

18: A selection of video games that you enjoy that perhaps you really shouldn't.
Most shooters. They get my blood and adrenalin pumping, and as I'm often playing them late in the day, it kind of interferes with my sleep schedule.
(only one of several things doing that right now)

19: A celebrity crush that maybe even you don’t understand.
I don't think I've ever crushed on a celebrity... =>.>=

20: Free rant on whatever grinds your gears at the moment.
I have so many things on my mind I could rant about, but they're all mashed together right now, such that I can't extricate even one from the bunch to identify.

Smoking because they're poluting the air I'm trying to breathe.

You know, if this is the Unpopular Opinions Meme, then it doesn't make much sense to boo Nickelback and other easy targets. Still, you answered the questions as asked. It's a pretty sloppily written meme, what with "have got" and a more clearly erroneous "you hating doing."

I'll forgo the meme, if only to avoid feeding my habit of negativity. (Too late, right?)

I like unbunging the bog - never happier than when I've goin' round the bend, up to my armpit in a full (of water and nothing else for preference) pan.

The joys o' roddin'.....

Never mind germs, just keep care of hygeine and the dettol to hand.
