Dislikes & Stuff that Sucks

Stupid commercials
Well, basically all commercials, but the really stupid ones are the worst. Specially in movie theaters before the film starts, you can't just visit the fridge or something.
Watching sports
Sports is something you do yourself, not watch. I generally don't watch sports but sometimes I watch F1-races (waiting to see a spectacular crash) and some other stuff too if there is absolutely nothing better on TV at that moment and I'm feeling too lazy to do anything else. I have to admit that I sometimes enjoy watching golf.
