Yeah, yeah, if I were a manufacturer of something, I'd want it to look clean and new rather than filthy and unappealing, too, but at least give me a little realism eveery now and again, please. Some folks actually use and abuse their trucks and/or 4-wheel drives.

I think it's Subaru that has a commercial where the guy's Outback is loving filthy and only gets cleaned when it rains on the car. Kind of a nice change. Although for realism it should be a lesbian

I love driving out on i-80 through the salt flats and you can see all the places where the dumb shits drove out in their big trucks and got stuck. Yeah, that only looks like cement, buddy. It's actually mush under a half inch crust for 80% of the year.

Old Navy is the only clothing company I can think of whose ads make me refuse to shop there. I don't understand who they're trying to appeal to with the majority of their ads. Moms/Grandmothers I guess?

I buy stuff from there because t-shirts are usually pretty good quality and cheap, and their jeans aren't terrible. However, I refuse to watch their commercials, and if ever asked I would let them know that I shop there in spite of their lovely advertising, not because of it. I have no idea who the demographic is either.

Apparently, then, I'm in the minority here because when I get a television, I get it to play games on or to, y'know, watch some loving television. If I want to do computer poo poo, I've got a computer well and truly separate. I see no reason to combine the two. Goddammit I'm 21 and I'm already going "You loving kids and your newfangled inventions, IN MY DAY " If people can't handle being in a separate room from their TV while using their laptop, then I don't think they should be allowed to have either one. They clearly aren't mature enough to focus on one source of entertainment at a time.

Well what if you're me and your desktop is actually plugged right into your tv set? My tv is my monitor. Some days I like to browse the forums and watch a football game or other event and I can't do that without using my laptop.

Or maybe that's just penis monitor envy because mine is comparatively tiny and even if I wanted to upsize, I can't because there's almost literally no room to do so

Then they get outside and break up and go to their separate cars. It was freaky as poo poo.

If I should ask a lady from work out on a date to Chili's, and she responded by quoting John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom" in her normal voice, we'd have a laugh and hopefully have a good date.

If, on the other hand, I should ask her out to Chili's and she responds in a deep voice that sounds eerily like that of the late bluesman--complete with music in the background--there would suddenly be several pressing engagements I would just happen to remember at that moment.

The whole flaw in this is "asking out a coworker" combined with "date at Chili's."

It really is getting a terrible amount of airplay. Between that and the smug iPhone spots, I'm really starting to hate Apple's marketing department more than I already did -- and that's saying something.

I wasn't really sure if those kids were hipsters, and I'm trying as hard as I can to keep and open mind about stuff because I'm getting older and was never fashion-forward (t-shirt and jeans all my life makes shopping a few-minute affair), but they really do look like a bunch of hobos that have enough money to buy an iPhone without the phone. Each outfit seems worse than the previous as they just dogpile on top of each other in a never-ending mess of retardation.

They may not be hipsters, but whatever they are shouldn't be given air time. Who thinks dressing like that is a good idea?

I'm quite a bit older than the average poster on this forum ( ). Kids/young people have always dressed retardedly and looked like poo poo, it just gets more apparent the further you get from it. Things I've personally lived through:

Bell bottoms and polyester everything. Not the nice polyesters that mimic natural fabric, but the heavy, melt-to-your-skin-in-a-fire poo poo.

Parachute pants, padded shoulders and "new-wave" haircuts (jesus gently caress those things were ugly), plus bangs that stood straight up like There's Something About Mary except not with jizz.

Pants so loose that the dipshits wearing them had to hold them up with one hand. Also "grunge."

Now kids wear skinny jeans and don't cut their hair. Whatever, gently caress it. Although I am amused whenever I see a kid dressed like a punk and want to tell them I saw people dressing exactly like that 25 years ago. poo poo, they probably got that jacket at a thrift store from some person who found it in their closet and anonymously dropped it off in the middle of the night.
