People who are really, really into the royals in general, tbh.
People who do not enjoy It Wasn't Me by Shaggy.

I don't think there's anything wrong in principle with taking a negative offer, although if someone gets 0 in the cash builder, you might want to argue they are an idiot anyway - I'll leave that for you to do though!

People who have stuff like "Husband. Father." in their Twitter bios, especially when it's before their profession or claim to fame. Yes because I'm definitely following you for your family updates ever.

Surely not as bad as people who press the bell far too late and the driver either does an emergency stop or gets an earful from the passenger who has to walk back a stop.......come to think of it the people who press the bell only to say I want the next one actually

He does hurry the teams, but usually only towards the end of the quiz, or at other times if the team deliberate for ages.

Compare him to Bamber Gascoigne. Stephen Fry would have been lucky to get past "um, sorry, hang on..." if Paxo had been in charge.

The latter, but like 'fam' it's really its own word with unique connotations - it's a more flippant/tongue-in-cheek term of endearment than its parent, the grotesquely nauseating 'babe'.

I was watching the Simpsons episode where Homer joins the freakshow and goes on tour with all the rock stars. Early on in the episode he says he just wants to party with his kids but Bart explains that it's supposed to be pronounced par-tay. Remember when that was a thing? I cringe every time I hear it now especially in that episode. It's incredibly naff and for me bae is of that cringe-worthy category so as much as I want to agree with Jen about snooty people who don't accept new slang I agree with Gev. It's dreadful.

I remember this as well, it was definitely a thing in the 1970s. I remember my dad telling us about it and he wasn't a massive racist or anything. There was also something about being on the port or starboard side of ships that linked into it but I can't remember what that was now.

People who don't do their research properly too, obviously.

Related subsets:
- People of any political inclination who share infographics or serious memes seen on social media without having done any fact-checking (like that Donald Trump talking about Fox viewers thing)
- People who complain about the accuracy/bias of The Mail or The Sun on social media, then earnestly share links from The Canary.
- People who share news links from obscure sources without checking the legitimacy of those sources (yournewswire).

Obviously mainstream press isn't always great at upholding basic tenets of accuracy but they are at least bound by law, unlike random websites which can post whatever shit they want. There was some stuff last week about how hundreds of totally unsubstantiated pro Trump news websites have been set up in Macedonia in order to earn their creators a load of advertising revenue.

/definitely not on the accuracy warpath after spending a solid week reading about media law

Still rubbish. First of all division and multiplication are equal, as are addition and subtraction, which you don't get from these pointless acronyms. Secondly, they don't tell you that a^b^c should be taken as a^(b^c) rather than (a^b)^c.

Also, when I heard about BIDMAS at school, I thought is was just the acronym of some governing body of these things. I had no idea it was supposed to be some sort of useful tool (which it isn't).

Same sort of thing happened when I worked for Aviva a few years ago - someone internally accidentally forwarded a work-related email to a secret "all employees" distribution list that existed (for emergencies I guess), and it went to everyone UK based in the whole company. Cue instantly hundreds of "reply to all" emails saying "this isn't for me", which was promptly followed by hundreds more emails simultaneously replying to all saying "please don't reply to all". Emails were down for the whole company for about 12 hours. A real numptystorm.

Many years ago, a place I worked at installed its first e-mail system. Within an hour on the first morning, someone decided to test the out of office system by e-mailing themselves. Unfortunately, the system didn't limit the number of replies, so the server was immediately sent into an infinite loop of replying to the bloke with the out of office on, and e-mails filled up the server quicker than they could be deleted, and probably got to the point of exceeding the number of protons in the universe (well, I exaggerate) before they pulled the plug and started again.

I think it inspired the back story to the Terminator.

People who, after racking up a game of pool and lifting the black up to see where the spot is, spin it on the spot when putting it back. Barbaric behaviour.

Must admit I do this but I agree with you. It's a force of habit at this stage but I must try and stop. Strange that I don't do it for 9 Ball though.

I sometimes spin the ball. What's wrong with it?
