    The most recent iOS when watching videos instead of turning it landscape like it did before Now opens in portrait and you can only turn it to landscape if you have the rotate off!!

    I'm using up all my processing power, trying to figure why would anyone want to drink boiled leaves and milk?

    People who confuse the term 'screensaver' with 'wallpaper' - a screensaver is not a static image by definition, I can't believe people in 2018 still haven't got this but I encountered it today! (and yet, strangely, 20 years ago nopony seemed to have this confusion...)

    Normie translation

    Screensaver = wallpaper
    Hard drive = computer/tower
    CPU = computer/tower (if they think they know the lingo)
    TV = monitor
    Microsoft = MS Office
    Address bar = Google search box

    It’s TWENTY EIGHTEEN and the IT supervisor has deployed new PCs to the important project rooms with.... spinning hard drives. *facepalm*

    Yeah they did this with Season 1 and it was out of order, and then repackaged it in the random order they originally came out.

    That's another thing that annoys me, the MLP DVDs released in the UK absolutely suck! Missing special features, most of the episodes are sped up because they were too lazy for the conversion from NTSC to PAL, no Blu-Rays for the Equestria Girls films apart from the first and the American ones are region locked, and the covers are terrible. I feel sorry for the Germans in particular, they actually got the first two seasons of FIM on Blu-Ray then they got the same crap DVDs we have.

    Book reviews online obviously written by children as part of schoolwork. Teachers, please keep the 8-year-olds off Amazon and Goodreads.

    I don't knoooowwwww. I had to do book reviews at school too, but whatever happened to doing your work on paper and handing it in to the teacher, not to the website of a global megacorporation...

    People who seem to have a problem with me, but don't have the decency to tell me why.

    Missing the bus annoys me very much, and is the source of my habitual tardiness.
