Tilters

Everyone has these little things that just annoy them to no end. There really isn’t a good reason to get that upset about them, but we do. Our pet peeves just really dig into us and push our buttons. Here are some of the things that put me on tilt.

Women:

Nah I’m just playing, we all know its white people that actually get me on tilt. Specifically French Canadians.

Scatter Arrow:

This is the stupidest thing in all of Overwatch, and this is a game filled to the brim with things that are stupid. For those unaware, Scatter Arrow is a special skill the character Hanzo uses in the game. Basically, he takes a regular arrow and shoots it, but when it hits something it doesn’t stop like a normal arrow. Instead, it splinters into a 100 million trillion little arrows that fly off in every direction and those splinters ricochet off the walls a few more times. 99% of Overwatch players don’t understand how to properly use this ability, but that doesn’t stop them from hitting me square in the head with it every time with some BS that bounced off three walls before finding me. It wouldn’t even be that bad if I didn’t have to see the kill cam only to realize they were aiming in the total opposite direction. I’m counting down the days until that ridiculous skill is removed from the game. Kaplan pls.

The traffic circle near my apartment:

It’s a big stereotype that Utah drivers are bad, but it really is true, and you only have to watch what happens at this traffic stop day in and day out to know just how bad it is. It’s a one-lane circle with yield signs marking all the entry points not that those matter though since every person who’s ever gone through it just barrels in like its their God-given right to do so. I swear some idiot is going to T-bone me in that circle one of these days and when it happens just know that I called it.

“EDM and Rap aren’t Music!”:

Believe it or not I still occasionally hear some form of this sentence from time to time. I get that you don’t like those genres, but come on, it’s obviously music. Maybe you think it’s such a terrible form of music that it lowers the art form as a whole just by existing,  and if you would say that I’d at least respect you for understanding at the most basic level what music is, but no one says that. When you say it isn’t music, you just sound like a 90-year-old senior who couldn’t find middle C on the piano if your life depended on it. (Not that I could either, but I’m not the one saying absurd things so I’m not on trial here.) Just stop.

The itch near my eye:

It’s like right where my glasses rest against my nose and it’s so annoying.

“Is esports real sports?”:

This is one I only see online, but it has to be the most pointless debate ever. The answer is 100%, “who cares?”. esports is here, it’s competitive, and it’s growing in popularity. 10 organizations paid 20 million a piece to be in The Overwatch League, its real, trust me. If you still need talking heads on ESPN to tell you your hobby has value then you’ve got bigger problems.

The guy in my ward to thinks Jeopardy is stupid:

What is you’re stupid?

Bananas:

Could they like not go bad the day after I buy them? I make sure to buy them with a good bit of green on them to avoid this, but that doesn’t seem to change much. They’re still covered in brown spots by the next morning.

Aight I’m done. Also, this totally wasn’t the project I mentioned when I said I wasn’t going to blog last Friday. That’s a whole other thing that I still haven’t figured out at all. Later.

I pretend like I’ve got things figured out when really I’m making it up as I go. Honest to goodness truth.
