    No you don’t. Gasoline was invented in 1873. Same year as the gas can.

    The automobile was invented in 1885. That is more than 100. Plus it is a great invention. A lot of us was conceived in one. That’s why Henry took out the rumble seat.

    Single use plastic carrier bags, or at least their proliferation.
    Bottled water. You aren't buying water, you're buying a plastic bottle. A single use plastic bottle. Gah! Ban it and ensure a potable civic supply.
    Scripted reality television programmes.
    McDonald's, Burger King, KFC and all other similar purveyors of barely masticatable, oft indigestible, tasteless junk. Try a burger on its own. Remove the burger from the bread, wipe off all relish/garnish and try it. Responsible for waste amounts of waste, deforestation, land and water pollution and for what.
    Note : Curry houses, pizza places, fish&chip shops, chinese and sushi etc get a pass, providing any supplied gobble-rods aren't ruddy plastic.

    Never. I always assume the alarm is malfunctioning.

    You’re being serious and I agree except for leaf blowers. How else am I supposed to get all those leafs over to my neighbor’s yard while he’s away? I’m kidding of course, but they’re blowing over from his trees. I only have a Japanese maple in my front yard and he has his oak and sand cotton ball tree in his. Ever step on those spikey things?!

    Yup. Me too. My reaction is anger at the car owner for annoying me. It's always late at night, when I'm trying to sleep.

    Yeah. That. Like drivers need more media distraction than they already have.

    Touch screen in the car is the bane of my existence. Give me actual knobs I can feel and know exactly what I'm doing without having to look. And menus. What einstein thought that one up?

    Menus are not an interface. Can we just get that clear, Mr. Google McFaceMac?

    Depends on who you ask, I guess. A few people made a lot of money on that. They were evil people who deserve to be tortured in hell for time and all eternity. But if you ask them, I'd bet they still would say it was a great idea.
