I've turned into a grouchy, old b@st@rd

I can't stand rap.

I can't stand loud obnoxious music, especially rap.

I think it's stupid to spend so much on bling yet live in an apartment.

I think Al Gore is full of sh1t with his carbon offsets bs. The guy has multiple homes, big a$$ homes with air conditioning, etc. He uses more energy that most households yet he has the gall to lecture us. What a hypocrite.

I don't think global warming is caused by or even worsened, accelerated by human beings. It is what it is. There have been numerous climate changes in earth's history, most came before we discovered fire. The length of each warming/cooling are all estimations with huge margins of error, comparatively. How someone can say that this warming is happening sooner and faster is just stupid. And why isn't there consensus amongst climatologists anyway? How can the media accept global warming as fact if the experts can't even agree on the basic issues?

Anyway, I've turned into a grouchy, old b@st@rd and I'm only 43. Maybe I'll mellow in my 50s.

Al Gore is an a-hole...so are all the other politicians. Just remember this...less crap in the air and water...the better off we all are. Stop wasting things and they last longer....it's so damn simple.

And there's the core of the problem: "rap" is not music.
(Possible exception--justified as not really "rap"--might be Rapture by Blondie.)

Nothing racial. Beastie Boys are just a hoot. If race were my criteria, Vanilla Ice would be my idea of talent .

I hate rap and the entire hip hop culture. Anyone want to see a real example of child abuse that stems from this culture? How's this for you:
Urhines Kendall Icy Eight Special K
That is the name given to a child recently born.
http://www.newbabynews.net/hospitals...babyID=h33-440

Some things should be made illegal.

BTW: Urhines is pronounced "Your Highness"

What about Public Enemy and Fear of a Black Planet? It's a hell of a lot better than Sheryl Crowe and Garth Brooks.

If he's as old as he claims, he'd know not all rap is 50 cent shiyte.

Actually, there is. Let's see, who will I go with on this, someone's seat of the pants feeling or 95% of the scientists studying the problem? Hmm.

Beastie Boys are Hip-hop.

Rap is garbage, and they will often try to call themselves hip-hop in an atempt to glorify themselves and their asstacular music.

Hip-hop on the other hand is something you can chill out to...it's not a bunch of wanna-be gangbangers sitting around and going "uhh yeah n----a, uhh got my glock beeyotch!"

I used to listen to rap....sometimes I listen to it now for a laugh...that stuff really sucked, and at the time I sucked for wasting cash on it.

Real hip-hop.....Beastie Boys, DJ Shadow, Jurassic 5, and a whole bunch of names i can't think of off the top of my head. Give some of those folks a try...they are damn good.


Oh, and I really hate when parents let their kids run around with wrenches, and they smack it against every freaking vertical on the guardrail as they run past my apartment. Really, I wish it was legal for me to duct tape that silly wrench to the kid's back so he wouldn't be able to reach it.

And the people that made my anvil suck....I paid $50 for an 8lb cast steel anvil, and it's not even properly machined. Now I have to go through the fun of taking a grinder to the bick of it and the work surface. Tip: Never buy a bench anvil from Milwuakee Tool....they aren't suitable for any kind of serious knife/razor work out of the box.
