People just don't know the difference between copy editors and beta readers these days. Beta readers are supposed to look for those plotholes and character continuity errors. I see so many novice writers get the two mixed up, when copy editing is a whole separate TEDIOUS beast.
Right?! I prefer beta reading to any copy editing because English grammar can get... Complicated. But I LOVE helping people fully develop their plots and make something great

When people sneeze or cough and don't cover it. Even worse if they use their BARE fuckin HANDS to cover it.

Use your elbow pit! YOUR ELBOW PIT, ya nasty fucks!
So much of this. There was a time in my life where I literally had no immune system whatsoever, so I couldn't fight illnesses in the slightest. For heaven's sakes, don't sneeze into your hand and then drag it over every available surface around. I'm sincere when I say it could literally kill me.

People who use civility as some form of measurement of whether someone is reasonable or not. Like the amount of people I've seen who acts like telling a white supremacist to fuck off makes you and, as a result, your views less reasonable than those of said white supremacist is downright sickening.

When tv or movie plots only work because the characters do stupid things all the time.

Just watched Netflix's Locke and Key, and the final episode was the most idiotic thing ever. The bad guy has been menacing our protags for the whole season wanting them to give her the omega key to open the black door. When the protags find her apparently unconscious body, first thing they think of doing is taking her down to the black door, opening it and yeeting her through it, As well as the egregious last episode no one ever makes use of the magic keys for any other purpose than testing them out or for shits and giggles. The potential of the main conceit is completely ruined.

Is it impossible to have people act vaguely intelligently? I mean I'm not asking for einsteins here ...

Got a new one.

I don't know if this only applies to schools in our country or not, but I get so irritated when teachers choose to call out students who use their phones to type out lessons but not call out people using laptops. Supposedly it's because a phone is a bigger distraction than a laptop but I am literally looking at a guy watching a movie on his laptop right now. He does it even during class. And not a single teacher calls them out for it.

Other peeve is teachers who call you out for doing something like reading or typing something when they have literally not assigned anything for the day. What the hell do you want us to do, stare at the board and contemplate life? I once got a sketchpad confiscated from me because the teacher for the day was pissed off for some reason that I was doodling during free period.

Needed to vent a little there.

My sister's in a relationship right now and her bf is just one giant fucking peeve for me. He's no sense of sympathy or understanding and can't sacrifice any of his comforts to help someone else feel better. She bends over backwards trying to help him with things and to do stuff with him that interests him, but when it comes to her own interests, he's no time for them. He's selfish and sketchy af and I know she loves him so I try to be tolerant of him, but my dislike of him hasn't waned any. I still think he's an asshole.

Minus the whole comic book stuff, you just described my extended family. I refuse to associate with them beyond funerals.

You know what really chaps my glutes the fucking human body. I'd would gladly upload my conciousness to a robot body. Even if meant joining a robot army to take over the world and I was destroyed within 24 hours. That would be 24 hours of heaven.

Seriously.

F U C K my body. Why must it be so sick? Why must I be unable to hold food down? Why must I be limited to the physical capabilities of a human???? FUCK this "you need 8 hours of sleep" bullshit, I want to be able to get by on none!

The human body does not work at 100% efficiency and it makes me angry 😡

I literally hate this. In my country it became popular because of football (the real football aka soccer XD ) players doing it all the time and guys think it looks "hard" and "manly" or whatever. If you have too much saliva either swallow it or use a tissue. Stop trying to bring back tuberculosis. Gross.

Would also put my name on the list for a robot body. XD

I might not be a doctor but I do know for a fact spitting on the ground will not bring back tuberculosis. One has to have tuberculosis to begin with to spread it by spitting. Also the only way you can get tuberculosis from spit on the ground is for you to lick it up or step in it and then lick the bottom of your shoe.

Your knowledge of disease transmission is so lacking that it borders on extreme severe mental disability.

Crayons was just trying to make a point by using an exaggerated statement, and I'll thank you not to insult the other posters in my thread.

Actually you can be a carrier for TB without having any symptoms. Same with a lot of diseases.

I said you had to actually have the disease. I can't give you TB from spitting if I do NOT have TB. Being sympotmatic or asympotmatic is not relevant to the point I made.
