Things that bug me....


I don't know if it's the dental surgery or general grumpiness, but I thought a 'let's vent' topic would be cathartic.

1. They are fixed bridle kites, not bridal. 'Fixed bridal' sounds like either an arranged marriage, or a shotgun wedding....

2. ?

5) When Wyatt Earp the Lawn Sheriff tells me to my face that I can't kite skate on a public field (with 200 x 50 mm inflated wheels of doom tires on) at the exact moment that three kids are biking across the field on mountain bikes that he pays no mind too. :crazy:

6) When my bride insists that I stop kite skating and snow kiting just because I get yanked 40 feet into the air and then slammed into the ground and bash my head in. Wait a tick, that's actually a good reason. Damn. :mad:

7. That I have to refer to my precision engineered, carefully maintained, Mach-1-capable, beach racing rocket (which cost more than my first car) as a......"buggy"

Shouldn't it be "Fixed bridled kite" as it has more than one bridle?? ;) I thought a bridle was a single span of rope supported at each end.

8. "To" is a preposition used in conjunction with with a destination or activity: I'm going TO the store. He went TO play... conversely "Too" is an adverb meaning "also" or "in excess of": I want that TOO. It is TOO much.

9. It's spelled "definitely" not "definately"

1. I absolutely loathe Grammer Police. "Go justify your Education somewhere else."

2. When I have my buggy on the back of my truck and people approach me at the most inappropriate times asking..."what is that thing?"

Not intended to offend, or be the grammar police... identifying with of the original posters annoyance with the misuse of "bridle" and "bridal," I find annoyance in the misiuse of "to" and "too"... by appearances the topic posed is things that bug me... that is something that bugs me.

I'm sorry if that bothers you, I did not intend it to do so. If I were policing the forum and correcting grammar, I agree that would loathesome.

Awesome vid Randy... loved it.

Some people are educated way beyond their intelligence.

A few of my pet peeves..
there, they're and their
affect and effect.. (One is a verb the other is a noun.)


Eye Halve a Spelling Chequer
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight four it two
say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its really ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect
in it's weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
(Sauce unknown)




Lots of two line stuff including a 9 stack of HQ Boleros
HQ Symphony 2.2.4!
Skydog SDT 2.8
HQ Crossfire II 2.0, 3.0 & 4.0
HQ Toxic 8.0
Flexifoil Bullet 4.5
PL Hornet 2.0

Before you ask, What kite Should I buy?

I have yet to learn how to convey sarcasm in text. I often tell people. "You can't offend me. I'd have to care to be offended."
