Things you hope will die off during our generation

Postby AussieDodger » Sat Jul 23, 2011 10:22 am

Let's make a list, I'll start...........

1. Shaking hands.
I'm not a germaphobe, but I've just met you - why the f___ would I want to touch your hand????

2. Ties.
These make absolutely no frigging sense and serve no purpose. In a place like Australia that is insanely hot, they are just asinine :-C .......to have an open collar and/or have your shirt buttons showing is a faux pas, but having something sealing in the heat and having sweat marks all over you is OK? I see. :-°

3. Telemarketers - Is there anyone in this world who likes to be bothered at home by a pesky salesman?

Yes, please!

Also, power cords. Wireless power is doable. And the clutter of dozens of cords drives me nuts.

I wouldn't say I want them to die off, but a couple things I expect to nearly disappear:
1. Daily Newspapers
2. Wrist watches. Unless they get combined with phones. A sort of wrist phone might be cool.

What do you want to wear a bowtie?

The belief that politicians are in any way concerned with their constituents.

Reliance on politicians in general. I think a failure of society is that we have forgotten how to unite as people and instead have come to expect no outcome from even trying to do so. For example, if a corporation is misbehaving, we expect the government to prosecute them or the invisible hand of capitalism to punish them in some other way, when in fact the most direct way we can do it is through boycotts and the support of alternative products/services. When was the last successful major boycott? You'd think that with the spread of social media and the complete nationwide accessibility through the internet, we'd have much more large-scale grassroots efforts, but nooooo we're collectively lazy douchebags blaming everyone else for being lazy douchebags. And the reason we have a crappy two-party system that serves no purpose other than partisan posturing is because we don't hold them accountable for their stupid garbage by uniting behind a third-party candidate. Instead it's "Vote for a douchebag Republican because the Democrats are even bigger douches!" or the other way around.

I don't know, I'm slightly stoned and rambling. The point is, I hope this general lack of faith in ourselves as Americans will die off once we finally reach the inevitable breaking point.

bicyclists who ride their bikes in the middle of the road like they belong there... or worse the ones who ride like 4 feet from the curb but swerve in and out so it looks like they'll bump into you if you pass them.

also, the Tour of France bike race
