A classic sporting rifle purchased recently would not fire regular ammunition. It would fire pistol ammo--in a chamber insert--but not full-size full-power rifle ammo for which it is chambered. Gunsmith said congealed oil was slowing down the firing pin/striker and to blast the bolt assembly with solvent or brake cleaner.

Group school projects. It never fails that out of a group of five at least one person never shows up, two others come and do a little work now and then, and you and the other guy end up working your tails off to get the project done in time... so the other people that don't do anything can get a good grade too.

I'm petty though, I'd ask to do my own separate project, if told no, I would just put in minimal effort too.

People who complain, then sit back and wait for
someone else to fix a problem. Then fuss because
they  didn't fix it right.

What really grinds my gears is when some of my friends don't take me seriously when I politely ask them not to touch me. They think it's real humorous to touch me even more when I've told them when I don't like being touched! I already feel gross about myself and making fun of my personal boundaries isn't making it any better.

This is the worst, it's rude enough to expect others do everything for them but then having the audacity to complain about it being wrong is almost a whole new level of being obnoxious.  :o

THIS!


People who can't drive or don't pay enough attention to correctly do so. ONE WAY means ONE WAY. YIELD means wait for other vehicles to go by BEFORE you merge. You don't need to run a stop sign to get through the intersection first. You should be going faster than 30 mph when merging onto a highway. Tailgating me when I'm already doing 5-10 mph over the limit will not make me move faster. LANE CLOSED means move the hell over as soon as you can, not wait to the last minute and cut everyone else off. A turn lane is not a passing lane. OH MY ****ING GOD, GET OFF YOUR PHONE AND FOCUS ON THE ROAD!

EEEEEEERRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

*Deep breath*

Phew... got that out of my system...

People at work who tear a perfectly good donut in half, then eat one half, leaving the other. No one wants the other half because someone touched it. So the remaining half goes to waste.

As per the Big Car comment: I have actually seen overturned SUVs during icy weather. My theory being that the driver previously drove a low-profile compact with some pep as a student. Then once in a good-paying job and raising a family, bought a car with a higher center of gravity yet kept the same driving style.

I like analog-type wrist watches sometimes because one need not press a button to read the time in low light conditions. However correcting the date function may take some effort. The method of making said correction varies from make to make.

People who when the light turns green stay parked till it turns yellow. I don't drive around that much. This has happened twice in two different towns. Is this becoming a 'thing' now?
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

People who feel the need to insert political words, phrases, and hate into EVERYTHING. I just got off a FB modeling group where I saw one person write "Oh, you didn't paint that aircraft canopy correct. You must be a liberal."

It's really getting out of hand/control where people have to spew their political hatreds/comments into things that aren't even political whatsoever.  >:( In short, leave the damn politics out of Star Wars, model building, ice fishing, travel vacations, and anything else that ISN'T political.

Seriously, some people need to shut up and grow up!  >:(  >:(  >:(

Kobuk, I'd have to reply to that like this. "No, I'm not lied to and used enough to the point where I can't make my own decisions. I'm still an American."
And let them rant on. Be the best you can be. Don't leave.

Another thing that grinds my gears is when people start using the words "fake news" for just about anything. Even stuff that isn't political.  >:(


"That didn't happen in the film. It must be fake news!"
"Leonardo da Vinci didn't paint the Mona Lisa. If he did, then it's fake news!"
"There was no Great Depression in the 1920's. It's all fake news!"
.........and on and on and on and on.  :P

It's like, all of a sudden, people are not just questioning and critisising all the media and politics around them and calling it fake news, but they are also calling all of our history, films, etc., etc. fake as well?

Sorry, folks. But what happened in the past actually happened. It is not fake!

All the folks driving around in hoodies with their hoods up. It gives them tunnel vision. Plus the player in Assassin's Creed wouldn't be caught dead driving such a conveyance. Save the cosplay for the renfair or comicon for safety's sake.

Bought a new battery for my laptop a few months ago and it's already taking a dive. Battery status reads "97% available (plugged in, not charging)". Good thing I have a spare.

Printer Ink!
Always buying ink .  The printer sits there spinning its wheels, priming the ink tanks prior to printing.  Why? I just printed!  Stop sucking ink out of the tank!
Even with ink refill kits, its costly when a lot of ink is just lost to priming!

I print a lot of graphics/photos, so I need a printer.  I am thinking of going tankless.. using hoses to a remote bulk tank... like the pros.

The battery seems to be chugging along. Must be a glitch.
