Don't You Just Hate It..?

The occasional '5 things' meme has reared it's head. If you've ever felt like venting then this is a particularly entertaining way of doing it - just have a read and find out!

Joey Nova seems to be generally annoyed with media-inspired outrage and the shallow self-congratulatory narcissism of good intentions.

And Jim Beeer is equally wound up by the fakery in contemporary culture.

But whereas Joey feels the ability to express his distaste for those elements in society helps make it more bearable, Jim wonders whether the only answer to the destructive two-party political situation is to emigrate...

Meanwhile AmyKate gets wrathful about the misuse of data.

She explains how marketing mailshots are often inappropiate on so many levels and says, "what really frustrates me is when these companies don’t make sensible – or any – use of the data they have."

    Surrogate offendees - people who are on a constant quest to be offended by something that doesn't affect them.
