    A trash compactor? Wtf? Do You live in bel-air or something? Sounds like something rich people have. You dont hae normal bins that u throw your trash into and have a garbage man pick it up?

    Actually, I think if you press A during the cutscenes, you can skip them (this only works after the first time you've attempted the level, though).

    Now that I think about it, though, Bouldergeist is a pain in the a**. I think it took me at least 20 tries to complete the Daredevil Run against him the first time.

    I know, but the fact that you have to rewatch them if you leave and go back to the level is what pissed me off.

    Good thing Boss Blitz's Prankster Comet isn't a Daredevil Run, that'd be pure hell. It's still pretty hard, though. And Bouldergeist's Daredevil Run is only bad until you get good at it (which initially did take me a while admittedly). And Squizzard's Daredevil Run is harder.

    Oh, I see what you mean now. Yeah, that does get annoying.

    You know the worst gear-grinding unskippable cutscenes, though? The ones during the Shadow Queen battle at the end of TTYD. I swear, it takes like 5 minutes to get through each one (there are like three of them), and if you lose at any point during the battle, which for me takes about 30 minutes, you have to watch the entire thing all over again. Incredibly annoying, especially if/when you have to redo the battle several times.

    That would be hell. I have gotten much better at Bouldergeist, but he's still one of the hardest bosses in SMG. I always found Squizzard to be pretty easy, though.

    Really? I found Squizzard to be more annoying because they both could partially regenerate later in the battle (Bouldergeist's arms and Squizzard's cannons), but Squizzard also had the quicksand arena making it harder to dodge his attacks and counter. Also, I recently discovered (although I had done this before but didn't really pay much attention to it) that the trick to Bouldergeist's second phase is to spin attack and grab both Bomb Boos when they're close to you, that way when you go to hit Bouldergeist one of them hits his arm and the other will go straight through to his body.

    Trimming my nails. It's time consuming and I'll have to do it again in about a week.

    Yes in our neighborhood we have a trash compactor that is mechanical. I don't live in bel-air. I wish. We don't have normal bins in our a apartments which do look like town homes.

    Oh my god you are just like my dad. OTL

    I live in an area where having a kid usually means you don't want to work and want money. Aka, there's a lot of young 'uns.
    Anyways, I went out for my birthday meal with my family as I normally do a few days back and he constantly complained.

    I agree though, but silently. ¬.¬

    What annoys me more though is people on the bus with headphones on... but the music is full blast and all you can hear is:


    I mean srsly. Turn that shizz down.

    I find it more annoying when I'm inside my house, and someone is driving down the street, blasting their music so loud it shakes the house.

    What's really annoying is when you're listening to the radio or something at work and it's at a volume level where you can recognise the beat but not the actual song.

    People who discriminate. I especially hate sexists and homophobes.

    Y'know what really grinds my gears? People who don't have their headlights turned on when they're driving. Last night when I was biking on a road without sidewalks, there was someone driving towards me with their headlights off. That obscure car was right behind me.

    Add Antisemitism to this list, and here's my answer.

    You wouldn't like my dad then. Actually, most of my family is normally really loud. I'm like the one quiet person in the family. ; )

    People who throw attitudes with innocent people in fast food places. Such a annoying thing to do.

    Greatest post. Ever.

    Get your #*&$% baby out of the movie theater FFS. Babies can't watch movies! Stop ignoring them to stare at Adrein Brod........drooooooooooool
    Oh sorry, anyway 99% of the problem with the last few generations of children is that parents will do ANYTHING to get the #$&#* away from their kids for as long as possible, and typically this means just completely tuning them out.

    As far as gear grinding is concerned, people who seem to think that their political beliefs can be summed up in a two or three word bumper sticker. I'm sure you've put a lot of thought, time, and effort into establishing your political views. *sigh*
