Time for a new expression. Roommate Annoying.

By Andrew Pollack on 01/09/2006 at 09:26 AM EST

Ok, we all have heard of "Coyote Ugly" -- someone so ugly that if you were to wake up with them after going clubbing you'd gnaw off your own arm to avoid waking them as you got out of there. Its now time for a new expression.

"Roommate Annoying" will now officially mean someone who annoys you so completely that they no longer have to actually DO anything to be an annoyance. You're pissed off by their simple presence. You're pissed off even though you've let the other stuff they've already done go by. There's an important distinction here - you can't still be angry about something specific. No, to be considered "Roommate Annoying" the person has to be completely gone from your mind most of the time, but when they enter your senses by entering a room, calling you, or leaving evidence of their having been present you're set off on a simmering rage. That's "Roommate Annoying".

For those guessing, no, this has nothing to do with my wife or anyone else in my house. :-)

But Andrew - you work from your own office.. ? Up the meds, perhaps ? ;-)

I was once offered 300 bucks to inform a co-worker that he really really smelt
bad - and this was in a very hot and crowded office.. Odd how I get all these

And then there's "Double Coyote Ugly" - you'd gnaw both arms off so she
wouldn't find you looking for a guy with one arm.....

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything. Not just killing people and breaking things, but ...... 
  3. 01/28/2020Copyright Troll WarningThere's a copyright troll firm that has automated reverse-image searches and goes around looking for any posted images that they can make a quick copyright claim on. This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
