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.
