    Yeah I know, and I know why the other stuff is regulated and for good reason.
    You can have an entire setup for Dental/Medical/Surgical and nothing that
    is under licensed means like Novocain and the like (Rightly so).
    So you can legally without a license own furniture and hardware to fill a decent
    suite, but no minor meds. But like I said it makes sense.
    Granted I am not an anesthesia fetishist, and I have no clue on how some manage
    to get a hold of those type of gases, but they do somehow. O_O

    Honestly I'm of the school of thought that says the meds shouldn't be regulated. People always find a way anyway and at least buying shit from a doctor means someone can tell you "holy shit you are going to give yourself brain damage". But such is the world.

    Top 3.

    1. People who ask for cell # of other people.
    2. People who ask me if he or she is single (Grow some, and go ask yourself)
    3. People who try to impress me with stories.

    My wife's singing voice... she sounds like Stevie Nicks having a stroke.

    Homer, I am begging you, write a satire. Your Wit + intelligence about life, I think you could write one for the ages.

    Haha... thanks. I don't know. If life has taught me anything, it's that my personality works best in small doses.

    Hipsters. God, hipsters, especially those who wear their hair in man-buns.

    It frustrates me that my other half keeps telling me I look good with my hair up like that. I have occasional cause to put my hair up and every time I hear about it. But I am not a hipster damn it. I eat hipsters for breakfast and make them watch as steal their girlfriends! I cannot be having anyone believing I am some flouncing flower-crown wearing, responsibly sourced twat. I am irresponsibly sourced, damnit!

    People who just started going to the gym and keep posting selfies to FB.

    I know I should be happy they care about their health and have found a way to keep themselves motivated, but... so annoying. :dry:

    The fact that, when asked to name a famous Canadian, so many people immediately think of Justin Bieber.

    Diaper commercials on TV.

    Also, toilet paper commercials on TV.

    Truth is, I don't like it when women wear their hair that way, either. And get off my lawn.

    People who say "can you pass me my phone/ the tv remote/ a beer / whatever" when they are closer to it than I am

    People who say "i'd love a cup of tea" a synonym for "make me a cup of tea now"

    Dogs that run off with my socks and hide under the bed while i'm getting dressed

    You can buy stuff like laughing gas (nitrous oxide) for industrial purposes .... its commonly used as a propellant in aerosols. ( I only know this courtesy of a preol head friend who buys it for making nitrous injection mods)

    tricholoromethane (chloroform) can be made in a lab easily enough

    I thought Bullwinkle was from Frostbite Falls, Minnesota. (Close to Canada, eh?)

    I do know where he went to college: Wassamatta U.

    People that don't wash their dishes after using them. (although I strongly feel my hate is highly justified :twisted:)

    I like Justin Bieber. His Peurto Rican song is cool, dancefloor cool, sexy, sits well in our current Sigrid/Gerry Rafferty/bagpipes medley.

    ...

    I haven't really got beyond my exasperation with 'good' as a response to 'how are you.' But I think that's American, and I've said it all before...so, I lost that one.

    I don't really stand for people drinking coffee in coffee shops, they're idiots, or people pumping in gyms for that matter, or people with telephones, or people eating burger king on public transport gets more difficult to witness with each passing year. Gym people look so stupid with the fake muscles on these puny guys. Gym muscle looks like steak injected with steroids or herpes, not like muscle from chopping trees or wrestling against little men. although I suppose it's endearing really. I like swimmers, swimmers are special.

    Can it really be only ten years ago we walked past an open window at night time, and there, illuminated, sitting at a table, a couple, middle-aged, they were both studiously glued to their own personal laptops. I stopped my wife outside this window, and we smirked, look at those alpha mortgage-morons on display. Not even recognisable now as a condition, is so commonplace.

    People who take their dogs to bars and restaurants then allow them to wander unrestrained. The dogs poop and wee against tables and chairs then annoy other customers by begging at tables. The owners are totally oblivious, or choose to ignore. Is it just me? Please understand, I don't object to dogs only the fact they are not kept on a leash where food and drink is consumed.
