    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Although I think everyone should have pubes more like the lady on the left and the middle, I actually kind of like the commercial.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Funnily enough, I find the idea of this being her dream way to play with her kid more off-putting than her actually playing with her kid like this. I only find the commercial mildly annoying.

    Sheryl, that's a guest house.

    What a headline. Like it's the fucking State of the Union Address or something.

    "Hell Yeah!" TV Moments

    I don't deny her right to a smug pose. I simply don't like the smug pose in question.

    Boy Bands: NKOTB to One Direction, Discuss Here!

    I don't know who Kevin is, so I scanned the group and -- yup, now I know who Kevin is.

    I stopped listening to this when he started listing the body parts he liked.

    What does maternity leave even mean for these people? She got dressed up and went to a movie. Sure, making appearances is her "job," but going to movies isn't really working either.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for people acknowledging their skills and achievements. Bragging doesn't bother me if there's something to back it up. But that picture of her with her arms outspread is really douchey.

    TV Tropes: Love 'em or Loathe 'em

    This led me to believe the entire season that he was secretly a bad guy, so while he was nice, I was never fond of him.
  11. It sounds like something a 14-year-old would have come up with.

    Unpopular Opinions about Music

    I think there are a few reasons why the Re-ah-na pronunciation persists, one of which I thought of while watching the video. She says paparazzi with "rat" in the middle not "rot," as I think most (American) people pronounce it. So if you heard her saying her own name correctly but then also heard her pronounce other words with an accent that's different from your own, you might then "correct" the pronunciation of her name so that you're saying it in your own accent. (Not that I think this is a good reason, necessarily, just a logical unconscious one.) I think the biggest culprit is that you hear it out there pronounced the other way. The-Dream pronounces it the wrong way in the song she is featured on. A lot of people just let others pronounce their names wrong because it's easier, celebrities and regular people. I have a friend who introduces himself with a different pronunciation for his last name from what his family uses.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I was just about to say this, and I have a link if anyone is interested. It's an example of an archaic word being preserved in an idiom (like "beck" in "beck and call"); it's just confusing because it still exists with another meaning. Regarding the commercial, is the guy intentionally making a play on words?

    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    Which is part of why it surprised me to learn it is so watched. (Although #1 binged doesn't necessarily mean #1 watched or even #10 watched.) I would expect to hear about something that has relied on word-of-mouth to become popular.

    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    I'm surprised to learn it's the #1 binged show as the above article states, as I don't think I've heard anyone talk about it, nor do I think Netflix itself has recommended it to me. I'm not familiar with this show at all.
