The Rant Thread!

Recommended Posts

not really a rant but...

 

last night, Mrs bird and I went to bed.  The channel on the tv when we turned it on was the bachelor.  I've never watched an episode.  It was the end, when they do eliminations with roses.  My wife suggested we watch until someone cried (great woman).  Well, that lasted all of four seconds until one of the wimmens became a blubbering moron...  I was intrigued by this so we watched the remaining five minutes or so.  They were all crying.  The guy was crying.  The girl who got booted was crying for 10 people.  It's my understanding that these people spend a few weeks together on the show and most of those are not alone moments between the guy and one lady.  How the f*ck does everyone love everyone within the span of five days?  Is this really the tv that gets ratings in America these days?  I don't see any allure to this whatsoever.  HOWEVER, any time my wife wants to watch until someone cries, I'm game because it takes less than 15 seconds.  Please tell me nobody watches this - except for maybe BEG and Nikki.  If anyone does, please just tell me why...

LOL

 

You meant Cole ?

I live in the boonies now, so in order to get reliable high speed internet I had to cash out $2200 as a copay for the cable company to do construction in order to make my home serviceable. I paid them back in December and they told be it would be around 60 days before they could send a crew out, that's understandable. I received a notification that construction would be finished by February 2nd, awesome.

 

The week of the 2nd, I received a call stating that the date had been pushed back to the 9th. Well, it snowed the week before, so I took it in stride. The week of the 9th, I got another call that it would be pushed back again to the 16th. Now I'm getting upset.

 

This past week, a crew shows up and starts construction. Cool, that means I'll have cable soon, I'm happy again.

 

Monday evening I get a call to set up a service date for the following day, but I have to prepay the first month of service. That seems standard, so I pay it. The service tech comes out yesterday and says the crew didn't run a line to my home like they were supposed to, so now I have to wait till the 8th for Miss Utilities before they can run the line.

I don't think they are crying about the soon to be lost relationships...they are probably crying due to their current 5 minutes of fame being snatched from them. They might pretend they are crying about the former, hell, they might even believe it, but it seems too pathetic to be the real reason hah.

i signed a 3 year contract once with telus for internet and they gave me a computer out of the deal

 

about a year in we got a thunderstorm that fried the lines in my area and they had to put new ones in but they said it was gonna take 3 months to get around to doing it

 

and im not about to keep paying for a service they cant provide, so i go to get out of my contract and they wanted me to pay $500 for the computer plus alot more money for the remainder of the contract.   so after getting the runaround from everyone i finally got ahold of the head offices in calgary alberta and got them to waive the contract.  so i got a free computer out of the deal, and then i switched to shaw and its been fine ever since.   f*ck telus.

@idyb and yerbo, I envy your country having multiple options in a single area. America is a divided monopoly between 3-5 cable providers.

I just finished watching it. Other two features are Dead-Bang and Action Jackson. lol

 

For action genre it might be in my top 30. There's two many movies i like better if we're talking everything. 

 

Point break and Predator are great. Predator is my all time fav action film. I've probably seen it 150+ times minimum.

same with me and point break! it's set the precedent for pretty much all major successful action films since as far as arc and pacing goes. I'm sure they stole it from someone else but I'm yet to find it lol

Predator is pretty much the perfect action movie imo.

It really is, and should be used as a recruiting film for the Boy Scouts of America.

I like how Predator takes the voice recordings to troll people.

 

"Over here"

 

"Anytime"

 

"Turn around"

 

It was cool when Dillons arm got blown off and it was still shooting the gun.

 

Some fun lines besides the obvious staples:

 

"So you cooked up a story and threw us into a meat grinder. What happened to you Dillon"

 

"I woke up, why dont you"

 

 

"You're bleeding"

 

"I aint got time to bleed"

 

"Oh.. you got time to duck?"

 

 

"Stick around" after her pins the guy to a pole by throwing a knife through him

 

 

"Theres something out there... and it aint no man. We're all gonna die."

 

I always feel bad for Hawkins when he gets killed after trying to be nice to the chick.

 

You might think it was a plot hole when Dillons arm gets blown clean off by the Predators shoulder cannon yet Dutch takes basically the same hit after he kicks the rifle away from the lady and his arm remains intact, but they clearly showed that Arnold is simply much more jacked when he beats Dillon in the handshake arm wrestle early on in the movie, so his swoll arm can handle such a hit.

 

The scene where Dutch is calling out the Predator by lighting a torch and doing the manliest roar ever captured on film has actually been scientifically proven to impregnate any woman who watches it.

 

The Predator using Billys big laugh at the end when detonating his bomb was GOAT.

 

Yeah my favorite ever and definitely the movie I've seen the most times. The part with the pig and the trip wires used to scare the chit out of me as a kid.

 

A remake with the right cast would be cool.
