Third time I've tried to get a permanent Wal-Mart money card. Third time I've been told that I can't get a permanent card. It's starting to sound an awful lot like there's an issue with my social security number, for the second time in my life. I just want a PayPal account god dammit.

At least said "cookie" didn't chip any teeth that I can see. :P

Anyway, new day, new Rage: I seem to have a pretty slow library computer today.

Oh for fuc--

Which bright head over at YouTube decided to implant that autoplay function in such way it currently is impanted? Because Armok almighty if there is ONE thing MORE annoying than a function that BY DEFAULT starts to play a video THEY THINK is the most appropriate after you finish watching a video before it and it CAN'T be controlled by ANY immediately visible, non-hassle option in, you know, OPTIONS... then it's all this but add the fact that this function JUST APPEARS AND DISAPPEARS AT RANDOM FUCKING INTERVALS.

Sorry, I had to let this out. This is really grinding my gears.

Fuck this 1st world problems, mang, time to relocate to 3rd world country, build a mudhouse and spend the rest of my days being shafted by majority of the rest of the world including myself.

Yeah, autoplay is really annoying. Luckily if you sell your soul to Google log in to YT it remembers and keeps autoplay off.

Speaking of YouTube... the official Android app is utter garbage.

If your phone goes into standby, or you switch apps, it loses the cached video and has to recache it. Utterly annoying when you are in a conversation and watching a video at the same time.

When you touch the video the interface for seeking pops up. When it's fading away, you can still touch and drag the seek handle during the fade animation, but the interface stills fades away anyway and you have no idea how far you are seeking now ("Hey, lets code in a long animation for our interface, but not actually think about what happens when the user uses the interface during that animation!"). You then lose your position in the video and have to refind it, which is painful because of the clumsy capacitive touch screens, which makes it hard to seek in small ammounts.

Because of the above, I usually occasionally touch the screen to keep it there while working out where I want to seek, but can sometimes hit the next-video/last-video buttons that sometimes appear.

The history function has never worked for me, even when logged in. Apparently I have never watched a video before.

Sometimes the caching icon (spinning circle thingy) goes haywire and flickers on/off the screen. Sometimes it remains on the screen permanetely even when the video is playing. Sometimes it just fails to start caching a video for no apparent reason until I reload the video (go back and reselect the video, or re-select the link), which is annoying because there is no refresh button. Sometimes it just cant play the video (spinning circle animation resets several times before) telling me it can't connect. The video plays fine in the browser (when that used to work, see below).

I can't have multiple video's open (think some sort of tabbing system, like on a web browser), so if I'm watching a 1 hour video and a friend sends me a link to a 10 second funny clip, I have to remember the name and position of what I am currently watching first. Since when selecting a link, it would give me an option of which program to open it with, I used to be able to get around this by opening it with Chrome (which has tabs, and incidently does a far better job of playing YouTube videos.), but now doing that just causes it to re-prompt me to select an application (Selecting Chrome again does the same thing, ad-infinitum). I JUST SELCTED ONE what about that don't you understand, phone?.

It doesn't load the whole screen all at once, so sometimes I go to scroll down for whatever reason and accidently click an add or something. Incidently, this is a problem I have with interfaces in general. If a program is going to take 15 seconds to load, just come up in the background, I am going to do something else in the mean time. I diddn't buy a quad core computer to wait patently for things to load.

If the app closes (actually closes, not just goes into the background suspended), it is no longer at the video it was playing. This would be fine if the history function worked, but because it doesn't, if I am watching a video in a playlist, I will lose my position. I have to occasionally write down the video number on a piece of paper (Woo, the Information Age!) incase the phone freezes (uncommon, but it has happened), or I forget to charge the battery or something.

They are all relatively trivial problems, but there are so many that it's just fustrating to use.



The portrayel of atheists in TV and movies makes me rage too.

They are only atheists because of some horrible event in their past, like their parents dies in some car crash and that made them lose their faith (which everyone starts off with by-default in life), or their spouse was burned to death infront of them by a bunch of thugs. They are usualy emotionally cold and jaded because of this. Obviously you need to experience trauma to be an atheist, just like being stabbed causes you to bleed, or being tortured causes you to cry, because atheism is some negative character trait. But it's OK, because it's not their fault they are atheist, it's because of some past trauma, you have to feel sorry for them to some degree (because being atheist is undesirable). It also implies that being an atheist is abnormal, since it requires an abnormal event to cause someone to lose their faith (which people always have by default, and is normal).

These characters lose their faith like an amputee would lose a limb.

Can't hollywood come up with an atheist that isn't a victim of atheism? Someone who happenes to be atheist and is a pretty nice person?

I've never seen a main character from Friends, or Seinfeld, or How I Met Your Mother, or any other sitcom attend church outside of wedding ceremonies. Most characters you see on television already are atheists, you just don't see it. The only ones you notice are the ones that are explicitly made out to be atheist for plot reasons, and previous trauma is just a good plot element sometimes.
Looking at it the other way: How many non-kooky practicing Christians do you see on TV?
