I assign to Mordor....Mathematics in general. Because it gave me [insert any atrocious word here] during middle and high school. I had NO problems with it in Elementary, but then they added the alphabet.

I also assign to Mordor... the Twilight Saga. There's a difference in being a devoted, loyal fan and being psychotically obsessive. (Now watch an avid despiser of Harry Potter post they assign HP to Mordor It never fails. And aside from that I'm not saying ALL fans are like that, just the majority of those whom I've had the...pleasure of meeting.)

And someone on the first page said they assigned Jack Russells to Mordor...I, too, agree with this! There is NEVER a moment's peace in this house because of those yapping, over excited, horribly ill-tempered dogs.

And while I'm adding things to the list, how about hunters who apparently can't distinguish the difference between a dog and a deer. You couldn't even mistake them for coyotes!



With all of that off my chest, Nerwen I know exactly how you feel and I sympathize. I lost my cat whom I've had since I was in 6th grade to coyotes. It was, to say the least, devastating for me.

My cat died a few years ago just after she had kittens. I was really upset about it. I know how you feel, Nerwen.

PJ definitely belongs in Mordor. May he rot there in the deepest hole he can find! Curse him till the end of his days! He has no right to ruin LOTR.
No offence to you, Mellrynx, but I'd assign math to Rivendell, if there was such a thing. I love working with the alphabet instead of real numbers. The one small part of ath I'd put in Mordor would be multiplying 5-digit numbers by hand.

Dark-Eye Belongs in MORDOR!!!

Raving fans that are only excited for "the hot elf" Legolas and only remember him. All kinds of math....its frustrating and detesting. Anyone who looks at the books and rejects them without a second thought. All the "popular cool people" who are just jerks to everyone else.

I've said this many times in various threads, and I'll say it again: may PJ rot in the deepest and darkest pit of Mordor until the end of his days!!! *and let us say: Amen*

"Anyone who looks at the books and rejects them without a second thought" - and may they join PJ.
Anyone who rejects the books without even looking at them - may they also rot there! For twice as long!

PS: if PJ somehow escapes this fate, may he be lynched by his own made-up Faramir!

Forgive me if I am wrong, but I would guess from this comment you are still at school? This may be of little comfort if you have a long time ago until you escape compulsory education but the sort of people who are regarded as "cool" as teenagers - well surveys have shown that they will never have it so good again because the kind of snotty stuck up behaviour they display doesn't tend to make you popular in the grown up world and workplace.

So the non cool kids often get the last laugh, better education, quite possibly more interesting jobs, friends who actually like them for themselves not because they are flavour of the month.... the cool kids literally peak too soon. Hang on in there...

Yeah! Mithalwen is so right! Even though I just started high-school and you could say that my education just started , all the bighead stuck-up cool guys from middle school are already half failing (well, they use the optiistic term: just passing). After 8 years of receiving "jerk behaviour" from them it feels so good to beat them by like 15% in almost every subject...! Don't worry, Arendil15, when time comes it'll be the other way 'round with them

Arendil15,
I've been relatively sheltered from the kids who think that they're the coolest things since sliced bread, due to the nature of my school and its being populated by nerds. But I can say that my experiences at other schools really suck. High school is a horrible time, and though there is nothing I can say to make it more enjoyable to anybody, Mith is right. People who are 'cool' really aren't, and they never will be. One must stick with their friends and fellow nerds just to get through this horrible time. The upside is that there are classes and such that you can take at other schools, at universities, and AP classes that are for students who want to do well and learn. There is always the option of a nice Liberal open optional education (Shameless school-plug).

I can sympathize with you. I am going through that torture right now. Maths. *shudder* I don't think I'll live.

Haha. The Twilight Saga. My old arch-enemy. Let's not even go there.

I am quite annoyed that over the last few days there have known the answer to a few "Quotes" and "Quiz" questions. Normally this would be nice, but I dare not answer since I did not bring my books with me to England. (This would make it quite difficult to come up with a new quote)

Allergies.

I'm supposed to be on vacation. Vacation isn't supposed to involve flu symptoms. Flu symptoms are supposed to be caused by the flu, not by your pillow. Pillows are supposed to cradle and love you, not inflict death upon you (unless you're Desdemona). Fail, hotel room, fail.

Well I can sympathise - I have recurring nightmare that I have to do an essay for my degree - overnight about books I haven't read and all the rest of my cohort have already done. Even though I graduated longer ago than I want to admit to.

But I still think I would rather write a paper than do a viva voce.

I also assign this half-winter-half-spring weather we're having in Toronto. I hate having to shovel "snow" (*cough cough... more like slush) when its raining on your head! Disgusting weather!

Fake Sale Signs

Imagine walking through the grocery store. And you see that fabulous yellow tag just below your favorite item. The yellow tag that suggests it's ON SALE! Woo hoo!

You walk quickly toward it. You grab the box of Annie's organic cheddar bunny shaped pasta. And before you celebrate not paying full price, you see that the price on the yellow sale tag is the SAME price as the normal price listed above it!

Those sneaks! Make you think you're getting a good deal when in reality you're getting the same deal as always!

Once I saw a tag like that said that there was a sale, and it did indeed have a sale. It was exactly $0.5 cheaper than usual.

Whenever it's feasible to do so. I was actually after white cheddar shells, but they were out, so I went with 'Arthur' themed noodles and bunny shaped ones, which stunned and delighted a pair of small girls. I like to eat things that only contain actual food products, and I like my ingredient lists on pre-made things to be only a few items long, if at all possible. I'm not horribly picky, and once in a while I'm still going to get one of those godawful fifty cent 'apple pie' things that have an infinite shelf life and are glazed with the sugar equivalent of crack. But I likes me apples to have no ingredients except 'apple' and my orange juice to consist of 'orange juice' and maybe, for diversity, 'pulp' and a smattering of 'water'. I like water. I don't like high fructose corn syrup. If you need to sweeten your oranges, you did something terribly wrong to the orange.

And the only tomatoes I'll eat are locally grown, because any tomato that's durable enough to survive the shipping and refrigerating process almost invariably tastes like cardboard. *twitch* But then, I live in the boondocks, so between the end of April and the end of October, I get all/most of my produce from farm stands anyway. Same goes for desserts: when you get your caramel glazed cinnamon rolls from an Amish bake sale every Friday, you can guarantee they're organic.

But on the subject of Mordor... The fact that it's not time for my favorite farm stand to be open yet! I have to wait almost two months still! Winter produce makes me sad. It's so flavorless. I'm a raw foods kind of a kid (mmm sushi), so when the options are either 'shipped from somewhere far, far away' or 'frozen,' I get sad because it's just not the same as having a brown paper bag full of sugar snap peas that you can eat while driving with the windows down.

This is going to sound rather petty and whiny, and indeed it is a pretty small annoyance in the scheme of things, but nonetheless:

Fake gift-giving. That is, the practice of buying someone a "present" with yourself in mind, then immediately asking for a long-term loan of said present. Really, who do they think they're kidding? (Yes, yes, this just happened to me, of course– can't you tell?)

Life is like a fistful of Russell Stovers...

After reading some of this thread (and counting) I have to say that one thing is certain- true Tolkien fans are some of the liveliest, ultra-witty and intelligent bipedal (and otherly ambulatory) humanoids in all of Middle Earth. It's no wonder when the overly self-congratulating find the Professors work to be uninteresting. They appear to lack the depth to appreciate the richness of his. Such amazing men as he are not only extremely rare, but are (very nearly) responsible for making this life worth all the trouble (how many parenthesis is one allowed per paragraph?).

So, having voiced that scathing and abrasive opinion (concerning out-worlders), I must second the sentiments concerning all dullards who think Tolkien's work is boring (at best) and annoying (in the least), and the "Legolasites", or however one might pronounce it (sounds like parasites), who are only in it for the killer cool contact lenses and the sick snow sledding shield. These, without a doubt, come from Mordor as surely as will my (someday) future mother-in-law.

And to add my own personal bias- Anything that walks with more than four legs.

Fake gift-giving. That is, the practice of buying someone a "present" with yourself in mind, then immediately asking for a long-term loan of said present. Really, who do they think they're kidding? (Yes, yes, this just happened to me, of course– can't you tell?)
How cheap and annoying! I feel really lucky that this didn't happen to me. Whoever did this to you has no brains.

People who switch off their brains when they switch on their technological devices and expect you to provide postcodes for their sat nav for buildings clearly marked off the main drag.

Tornadoes. It's been a terrible day for them in my neck of the woods. There have been many deaths. It's the grace of God that my community had no major damage.

Thanks, mate.

As I said, I and my family were spared from any serious danger by chance. I second Bombadil's "if chance you call it", though.

Thanks, Nerwen.

I've only spoken to Leyrana Silumiel once or twice via PM, but I think she was in Tuscaloosa, which sustained an incredible amount of damage. If so, let's pray she's all right.

I assign computers that do crazy things behind your back.

My computer decided that it will have lots of fun erasing all the memmory and all the programs (even those basic ones like Word), and instead of showing a window for the internet it now covers the whole screen, without the blue border or anything, even covering the Start button... I'm practically banging my head against the wall trying to get it to work properly...and not succeeding, obviously...

I assign uncompensated teachers' meeting on Sundays. I also assign Taiwanese parents who refuse to see when their children have serious problems all in the name of saving face.
