Things that piss you off that shouldn't

I wouldn't have any weapons, I'd rather let the Polar Bear win than hurt it. I was only thinking in terms of defending myself.

Right, so I think I’m closing in on a result here.

If you’re not prepared to hurt a bear that’s trying to eat you, I’m coming down on the side of the bear.

I'm not tough, and have never had a fight, but I was wondering recently how many times out of ten I would get the best of a polar bear if one tried to eat me. Obviously the intuitive answer would be that the polar bear would win every time, but sometimes I don't always see it that way.

Historically, VT OT has had epic threads spawned from posts such as this.

I'm actually scared of dogs, so I don't ever want to have to find out for sure.

Totally different genus though the canis and the ursus.

I'm way more scared of dogs than bears.   I've never been bitten by a bear.

I'm looking for a quote for minor repairs to my kit ceiling after a shower tray leak above (sealing the tray too)....skim the wall affected and make good, etc.

Me being amateur at handyman jobs at best, registered on checkatrade, mybuilder.com and some other one too. Picked out about a dozen, emailed them all and only a third bothered to reply. One bloke said he'd call me at the start of last week - nothing heard from him. So i thought sod it, I'll take a chance on a newbie from mybuilder and he popped over yesterday on time, friendly, courteous and experienced in the building game for 38 yrs. He's also an upper holte ST holder so that was a bonus. Booked him in for just after bank holiday. 

Okay..... i get that some might look at my job details in my email and think it's not worth their while. Fine. Just amend your adverts that say "no job too small" then !

On the flip side, i also emailed a couple of firms about fascia replacement and got an instant reply from a local dude who used google earth whilst on the phone to me to give an accurate qoute. Fair play.

Got a little irritated yesterday. A friend has started seeing a new fella, and immediately I took a dislike to him. He is punching well above his weight, he has kids from a previous relationship that he ignores and he has come out with a few dickish comments. Regardless I met him for the first time yesterday. 

So I was wearing as I always do a tshirt of a singer I like, in this instance he started interrogating me on the singers back catalogue, literally trying to trip me up, lecturing me on the guys early career and although I am no expert I am a **** fan. He then segued into people only wear tshirts of country singers to look cool, ****  really???? No one really listens to Cash or Waylon. I wanted to punch him. In the end I appeared to answer this kids questions but he stressed no one in this country has heard of Waylon Jennings. Prick.

I think it's grizzly man that details how a bear eats a human, basically uses its weight to pin you down and then picks at your fleshy bits, it'll eat your ass cheeks and your thighs first, it doesn't kill you it eats you alice

**** that, I wouldn't win in a scrap with one but I'd definitely make sure I died trying 

Maybe a crocodile dragging you under and drowning you, or a great white taking a nibble removing some limbs deciding you don't taste good and leaving you there but I think bear is the worst way to go, at least the big cats go straight for the kill

There's a video on youtube of a couple of komodo Dragons eating a deer alive, perhaps the most brutal thing I've seen from watching a wildlife video. I say 'seen', I couldn't even watch the whole thing, as soon as they start ripping at the deer's leg whilst it was still alive, I had to turn it off, the sound makes it worse.

They have some sort of shite in their saliva meaning they bite a limb, the wound gets infected, goes gangrenous, 3/4 days later that's the result

Never seen that before, that's brutal

They're one of the only venomous lizards. They have glands in their jaw that secrete substances that prevent clotting and affect blood pressure, enhancing the effect of each bite, which is already nasty given the size and strength of their jaws.

They aren't now believed to actively use the strategy of injuring prey and letting infection take hold and finishing off the weakened animal. They are scavengers, they'll take advantage of opportunities opened to them, but the attacking injured prey thing seems to be more a case of them following up on prey that has managed to escape rather than actually trying to get a bite in and waiting. They usually just tear their prey apart as quickly as possible.

They also act as a biological stop on deer becoming overpopulated on the islands, so while they're brutal, and they undoubtedly are, the good of the islands' ecology needs the dragons.

People that go in to the 'exit' door to the toilets in the Trinity Upper. It doesn't help that the toilets are badly designed. But anyway, come on, your need for a widdle isn't any bigger than anyone elses. Wait like everyone else.

You should have explained you were really in to The Ramones and Misfits, but weren’t sure if they even did T-shirt’s.

There’s definitely a section of society that see anything around music as confrontational. That think better trivia knowledge or higher sales figures or whatever can produce a ‘winner’, and there always has to be a winner for these people.

The technical term for these people is arseholes.

They're mainstream fashion items now.

If there's a problem to be had? It's surely with whoever's licensing them, cos they're going to be legit.

Uniqlo have done some great shirts tbf

I only ever wear band t shirts that I buy at the gig. I currently only own one - and 99.9% of the population probably wouldn't even know it's a band.

Hmmm, that’s a point actually. I don’t think I have any band T-shirts.

Though perversely, I do have one for a hi fi repair man in Hampshire. But it’s a graphic of a reel to reel tape machine and on my physique it looks like Madonna’s conical boobs. So I wear it infrequently.
