Rant page

The rantings of an AtariST fanatic. Surprisingly, no Amiga complaints. You'll probably not agree with everything, but most of it makes sense and is worthy of a good larf.

OK, his likes are variable, but I just re-read the dislikes page and I still agree with almost all of it.

mmm, what bothers me is that....

he likes... such "normal" things... things that most people spend their lifes doing.. for example...

Quote:
Interesting conversations...
... NO i prefer boring ones...

Quote:
Sitting on a deserted, golden beach...
... NO i prefer going to Work actually...

Quote:
A sense of humour...
... ERMMM NO, i prefer it if you are a boring bastard...

and probably the best

Quote:
A good meal
... SORRY NO... i prefer to eat shit actually or better still starve

if your going to go through the hassle of creating a website about what you like... then bloody give us original likes and dislikes... such as

i like running off a cliff with a parachute strapped to my back... thats called an exciting read... this website is NOT

Now thats what i call a RANT

Easy there, Djay!

I don't think this bloke's a nut, myself. I too agree with much of what he says, as it is logical enough. Good things make you feel good, bad things piss you off. Cynical people mess the world up. Yup, OK.

My complaints: the points are too succinct. More depth and explanation would make them more thought-provoking. He is also a touch condescending with regard to 'third world countries', perhaps, but I'm sure his heart is in the right place.

Amateur psychologist hat on: I find it interesting that, although many of his likes and dislikes touch upon the idea of conformity and his contempt for it, the lists are both neatly ordered into ten. Why not eleven?

Final word: although I agree with some of his opinions, I am not tempted to click Sex Tips & Links. Yeesh.

but he doesn't present any *new* views... alot of people would agree with some of his dislikes... he is trying to not-conform in an conforming way...

blah.. blah.. blah.. i hate Microsoft... blah.. blah.. blah..

blah.. blah.. blah.. i hate Fat Cats... blah.. blah.. blah..

blah.. blah.. blah.. i hate People who are proud of their country blah.. blah.. blah..

its boring, its racist... its too *normal*

blah.. blah.. blah..

if i he put "I dislike the possible threat of a Nuclear War because...", and back it up with valued reason... then that would better than this tosh!!!

On a daily basis i meet people who hate Microsoft and Bill Gates.. they still by bloody Windows thou....

i don't complain when Windows crashes while i trying to set WinUAE or whatever... rant... rant... rant

blah.. blah.. blah..

i'm bored now... sorry

Relax, D to the jay. We agree, silly!

His points are too succinct, therefore no room for his own original take on a subject to breathe. If indeed he has an original take.

The results are little soundbites. Which clearly irritate you, as much as non-recognition of Bloodwych irritates, er, Bloodwych.

Bloodwych's Top 10 Dislikes... now, that might be interesting!

seriously... i loved this Website

oh well, thats enough from me, i not trying to piss you guys off...

... i'm not irritated, far from it, the site WAS good enough to provoke a responce from me... but a negative one. If i didn't care, i wouldn't have bothered...

... i'm actually a nice guy, and don't normally... erm... slag people of for their opinons... as i said... i agree with him.. i suppose i'm actually slagging off the fact he bothered making them.

i wonder if he'll add me to his dislikes page

sorry...

I have quite enjoyed your opinions of the site. And actually, I agree with you on almost all of your points. The guy does have no originality (bloody Atari wanker, go figure). As for the MS tags...LOL!!! Good eye, that's all I gotta say! So I have altered my opinion of that page after hearing opposing commentary. I've always been open-minded!

Perhaps we should move this thread to somewhere else (my bad anyway) and then add our own unique rants! The first web site I ever made was called "The Site That Changes Its Name Every Day" and it had a page of rants (imagine a site of *MY* rants!!!) It was quite funny, even reading it now. And as y'all may know, I am ALWAYS in the mood for ranting!
