    Word. I put on a clean t-shirt yesterday, and something inside the shirt immediately bit my back. I had a 6" diameter red bump, with red tendrils radiating out from it. It was dramatic and itchy. I now distrust my clothes.

    RANT: It's "set foot" and not "step foot". It makes me want to stab a hobo.

    I'm sick and tired of the greed and high prices of freakin bicycle crap, and twenty five hundred dollar aluminum frames. For me it's a matter of principal. "Bite-me"

    I do feel better, Thank you op.

    It annoys me when people give advice and suggestions when they have no experience with a product or any idea about what they're talking about.

    It's even worse when people believe them.

    Good thread, btw. This should be interesting

    Intensely dislike it when asked "which bike, a, b or c?" those doinks who say "haven't ridden a or b but you should buy c because I have one and it's a great bike!"

    Two things.
    AMEN on the bug bites. I hate em'. On one part of the trail I ride, mosquitos come at you from every direction and it gets worse and worse the further you travel. And when I'm stubborn and want to complete the whole trail, I go through it and when I reach this incline, bugs just fly in your mouth and nose. Very disturbing if you ask me, plus it hurts. Alot.

    Also, there are some idiotic kids on my local trails that like to throw glass around. There are some sections that have the majority of glass, but there still are parts that have a few shards sticking up. Luckily, I haven't had and tubes popping (which seems crazy because of all the glass there is). I talked to the staff that maintenance the trail and they did not clean it. Thinking of bringing a rake the next time I go down.

    If the multitude of riders that established the singletrack could make that corner and you cannot, it does not mean you have suddenly found a better route.

    It means you suck.

    I only complain about the things I have control over. Anything else is just drama.

    This being so stated, on with the business at hand.

    I really hate it when there are lazy d-bag construction workers causing a major traffic jam on the street when there was nothing wrong with the street at all.

    This scene sums everything up perfectly. (Best movie scene in film history)

    A deerfly biting a fresh scrape on the back of my knee. New level of pain. And on the same trail also, horseflies. At least the deerflies only get you when you stop.

    I hate that clothes makers can't agree on sizes, how hard can it be to make some industry standard templates and design clothes around them? I hate that size XL shorts can have a waistline of anything between 36" and 46" depending on brand or even model within a particular brand, it's just rubbish. How hard can it be to have a round thing with a circumference of 40 inches, make a par of shorts with a waistline that fits perfectly onto that 40 inch template and actually mark the shorts "40 inch waist"??!? It's not rocket science!

    Two short rants:

    1) People who correct other people's spelling on public forums.

    That said,

    2) People who think it's okay to spell "tough" as "tuff" - are they freakin' serious???
    C'mon lets go for a whirl.

    People that can't spell the word "definite" on an Internet forum. I bet that is the # 1 misspelled word on the Internet. Variations include:

    defanite
    deafininte
    defiant

    And people who would rather do family $hit with their kids or wives or whatever than take off in the morning and be gone all day for a 6 hour ride. Your kids will get along without you.

    And I hate people that want to leave too early for a ride or too late. Meet ups for rides should always be sometime around 8:30 - 9:30. That gives me time to sleep in a bit, eat breakfast, and crap twice before hitting the road.

    And olives. I really hate olives.

    And I especially hate people who put 4 rants into a thread where you are only supposed to put 1.

    Yeah, but what I hate even more is that for some reason, I *never* get it right the first time. I do know when to use "they're" vs. "their" vs. "there" though.

    My trick is to think of it like: "De - Finite". Like, a "finite" amount.

    You're/Your still wins though...contractions are the Devil's handiwork.

    Coming down with the flu two days before a 5 day mountain bike vacation. The last time I got sick like this was 2010.

    Just remember the guy that corrects your spelling is a Roady that got into MTBing only because he got a killer deal on a 29er...

    People who sue each other. Oops, that's a tort rant, not a short rant.
    Um, people who come on a club/group ride so hung over they spend part of the ride singing their peyote song in the shrubbery, and then have to be accompanied back to the parking lot because they are so sick. You know who you are!
    Its (possessive pronoun)
    It's (contraction of it is)
    Yup, I learned the difference on a mountain bike forum.
    Why some people despise cilantro: linky
    Hey, nobody's used the little mad guy icon, so here ya go:

I love Mexican food but they keep Fvcking it up with that soapy crap. To me it has a strong almost unbearable soapy taste. Even the slightest hint of it is noticable and ruins any meal for me. Seriously, try going to Rubios or El Torito and ordering anything. Then tell them no cilantro. I guarantee you will find it in there somewhere because the food is prepped on the same table or it got stuck on a knife. I find that crap in my food all the time.

    Others are in the same boat. Just imagine the one taste you hate more than anything. Then imagine the one food you love the most and then imagine if halfway through that most delicious meal you were bombarded by that horrible taste you hate. It is like someone farting in your face while you eat.

    That being said, cilantro hate is not a choice. Studies have shown that it is genetic.
    Is Cilantro Hating Genetic?

    And now for some anti cilantro Haiku.

    Awful cilantro!
    I would rather smoke it than
    put it in my mouth

    spiteful cilantro
    wondrous guac, pico, pho soiled
    inedible herb

    Why, cilantro, why?
    Does my taco not taste clean?
    Lettuce, cheese and soap

    To the Kripalu chefs: Oh sh!t, not again. Cilantro on everything. I'll make a sandwich.

    Stinking evil weed.
    Tastebuds were thankfully spared.
    By vile odor warned.

    O soapy flavour
    Why pollutest thou my food?
    Thou me makest retch.

    A dirt laden floor
    Would be preferable to lick
    Than this putrid sh!t

    I don't consider Rubios or El Torito a Mexican
    restaurant. The food there pretty much sucks. I
    love fish tacos, but the worst ones are at Rubios.

    Sharts. Absolute horrific nightmare when it happens, though it usually makes for a good story after you've cleaned yourself up, burned your shorts, and gotten over the psychological trauma.

    True, There is a place called Fins in La Jolla that makes a killer fish taco and when I say no cilantro they get it right.

    tacos and shrimp burritos in the world.

    I got a neg rep too for my comment.

    How about another rant for losers who make stupid comments with neg rep and dont bother to sign their names. He thinks I have "Job Envy"? Great job completely misunderstanding my post. Try again..

    Cyclists running lights and stop signs. Roadies in full kit to Grandpa on his cruiser. I actually wish them all to have tragic accidents. Sorry.

    Parents who ride with their kids, force the kids to wear helmets but don't wear one themselves and then lead their kids through heavy traffic intersections.

    You actually "hate" him for this? Maybe he's hard of hearing. Sheesh, this and the wishing tragic accidents on traffic offenders...some of these rants are downright sociopathic. Lighten up and just have fun riding your bike people...
