Is there a Santa Claus? - a physicist view

Consider the following:
1) No known species of reindeer can fly. BUT there are 300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and germs, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer which only Santa has ever seen.

2) There are 2 billion children (persons under 18) in the world. BUT since Santa doesn't (appear) to handle the Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Buddhist children, that reduces the workload to 15% of the total - 378 million according to Population Reference Bureau. At an average (census) rate of 3.5 children per household, that's 91.8 million homes. One presumes there's at least one good child in each.

Delivery Idiots

So I had a parcel delivered to me at work today with a load of poster in.....but the idiots at the sorting office had squashed it and damaged the ends of all the posters....meaning I couldn't have put them up because they looked appalling. What a waste of money having them printed.


Oh could be worse:

The Turkey Was Well & Truely Stuffed

So I am currently VERY annoyed.

My band, (The UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show) were meant to be flying out to Istanbul in Turkey last Friday for a Christmas mini-tour. We all had our bags packed, our VISAs had been sorted, and some of us had even taken out insurance on our health and instruments, when we get an email saying this:

"Hi guys, we decided to wait until the last minute to book your flights from the UK to Turkey in an attempt to save some money. However when we went to book them this morning there were no avaliable seats left on any flights"

Giving change

Ok, this thing REALLY gets on my nerves.

When I buy something and pay in cash, say a bottle of cider (mmm cider) for £2.04 and I have to use a £10 note, the cashier often gives me the change in this order:

£5 note
loose change

So that the coins are sliding about on top of the paper note! It makes so much more sense to give me the coins in my hand and then let me grab the note with my fingers! Surely they would want it that way too? Are people always this stupid? It's not the end of the world, but it sure is annoying!

Anyone else have this problem?

Christmas? Bah Humbug

Anyone know how many days it is until Christmas?

I don't. No one bought me an advent calendar.

I've not even started my Christmas shopping yet. Jeez I'm behind. Anyone wanna do my shopping for me?

Plus I've not even put any decorations up yet.....

Oh well, Merry Christmas I suppose!

Thank you Blogger

Just wrote a long post about an annoying thing I saw this morning, then did a preview, then tried to re-edit and lost the whole post.

How annoying is that?

Save draft, then preview, then post.

Now I have to re-write the other post. Annoyed, annoyed, annoyed

Thursday, 8 December 2011

Anyway, while I was away I hit 500 followers on my blog! Big thanks to all of you who support Another-Annoyance and check us out daily.

The BTP (British Transport Police) tonight said on their Twitter account: "We've arrested a 34yo woman for racially aggravated public order offence as a result of #mytramexperience video brought to our attn."

That's just PLANE annoying...

I dunno about you guys, but whenever I fly I ALWAYS get lumped with the weirdos. I look down the plane and see normal people, but I look left and right and almost cry.

I think this picture explains what I mean:

Finger nail troubles

***Not my actual nails....***
So I just split my nail on my left little finger. It is SOOOOOOOOOO painful! And it wont stop bleeding.

Stupid thing. Because of my job, I am constantly splitting or ripping my nails. Maybe I should drink more milk, I hear that strengthens bones and nails...

Nightmare at work

Well today was a nightmare at work! I've never been so busy!

Let me explain what I do.

I work as a demonstrator for a global music company, and I travel the UK with a mobile concession stand filled with digital pianos, digital drum kits, arranger keyboards ect. Well today it was VERY busy, I had lots and lots of interest in the products (especially the drum kits) and I collected lots of peoples details.

Angry Birds

Not something that annoys me for once!

I absolutely LOVE Angry Birds. I was among one of the first few hundred to download the original game, and I currently rank in the top 5% of all Angry Birds, Angry Birds seasons and Angry Birds Rio players of all time, and its because of this that I am posting this image:

Car Stereo

When I got my new car a few weeks back, I spent a good hour say sorting out the stereo. Adding radio presets for all my favourite channels, setting the equalisation, adjusting the date and time, as well as the date and time format.

Then I turned the engine off and left.

Indian Summer you say?

So its the first weekend in October, and everyone here in the UK spent it sunbathing, having a BBQ and generally doing summer things. Not October things like shivering and drying off from the rain.

However, I was stuck inside work. In what was basically a giant greenhouse. Wearing a black uniform. In direct sunlight. It must have hit 35 degrees Celsius in there today. I burned. And work had the CHEEK to send me a new uniform. A fleece. Nice to know head office have a sense of humour..

The Internet, But In Real Life

I really REALLY hate it when people use internet-isms and memes in real life. Like when you tell a joke and someone says, out loud, "Lol". The Internet is The Internet. Keep it that way please.

Oh and this video was aired on Cartoon Network... Oh dear!

Washing Up Woes

This has happened for the last 4 days now, every time I wash up.

So I spend a good 30 minutes doing the washing up after dinner (there's only 2 of us living here, but still there's enough washing up for a family of 8!) and when I'm done I empty the bowl, dry my hands and turn around to see  ...

Layout troubles

Please excuse this rubbish layout, it is only temporary, for some reason my old one went funny a few minutes ago, I am currently making a new one, but it may be a few hours until it is ready.

Please continue to enjoy my blog and try not to be too sickened by this boring layout!

Mullets and other ridiculous hairstyles...

One thing that really annoys me is when you see 6 year old boys with stupid hairstyles such as the mullet or rattail. It looks ridiculous! They went out of fashion in the 70s for a reason!

You look like a douche. Sort it out.

Your Windows PC has sent us an error report!

So I've just spent the last 42 minutes trolling the scam pc error company that just rang me up.
Ah the fun I had, I told them I had 8 windows PCs and that ill do eenie meenie to chose one, which I did (windows 98 here we go). Then I said it was "dumping physical memory" and kept them waiting while it did that. Then I said it needed to install updates, that internet explorer 3 was out of date and needed updating, that I couldn't find their remote access site ect. So basically by now I had already wasted nearly 25 minutes of their time.

Then I said id use another computer (my mac....shhh dont tell them yet...) and carried on for the next 20 minutes until I told them I couldn't find the start button.

He hung up on me when I finally said I was on a Mac.

I love doing this to scam companies. They wanna take my money? Well I wanna waste their time!

So today I dropped a piano on my foot. Ouch. Think im gonna claim compensation.

Well, It was a digital piano, so it wasn't that heavy. I also managed to turn a tap on too much and it sprayed me in the crotch, so as I walked out of the toilets people must have thought I had wet myself.

All in all, a good day then

Injury Lawyers 4 U ect

I'm fed up with the number of Injury Lawyers with their "no win on fee" nonsense and claims companies spamming my TV with their rubbish adverts all the time. I was watching a program about the history of the piano and every ad break there was at least 4 different adverts that try to get you to sue other people. That's about as unrelated from piano history as you can get!

Oh and the other adverts that annoy me on British TV are the whole "we buy your gold for cash" ones or the "send us your mobile and we will give you so much money (not really, we are only going to give you £3.19 for your iphone harharhar)" ones. They annoy me so much!

Tyre Troubles

So I picked up my new car yesterday (a very nice Peugeot 206) and today when I got in from town I realised I'd left my phone in the car, so I went back outside to go and get it only to be greeted with a flat tyre on the front right wheel.
**Not actual tyre...**
I was not impressed

Luckily my aunt and uncle had bought me a 12v pump and tyre pressure kit for christmas and I had yet to use it. So after a little looking I found it and used it to re-inflate the tyre enough to get me the 1.2 miles to the nearest garage. It only cost me £10 to get it fixed and I was in and out in under 15 minutes.

So thankfully I'm back on the road. I just hope nothing else happens any time soon! I cant quite afford it at the moment...

Some people shouldn't be allowed on the internet

I hate it when you're on Facebook, or Youtube, or any other website where you can communicate with people, and someone sends you a message like this:

At least proof-read something before you post it! Jeeze. Quite often I've been sent messages, or even just seen other peoples comments, and it just makes me worry for the sake of humanity.

Do the world a favour. Go to school, learn how to write first, and then start having your input on the internet.

Guest Post - Stuff I Luff

It's time for another guest post! This time from Stuff I Luff (Check them out, it's worth it!).


So I, as many people do, check my Facebook most mornings shortly after I've gotten up. Still, however, I'm unsure why because I'm almost always disappointed. However, today was different... I was quite frankly, pissed off.

When people go out to party, why the fuck do they feel the need to spend ALL NIGHT on their phones updating us about it? If it's such a good party you should either be putting that phone on silent and getting people to call you so that it's vibrate functions can help you get through the 25 girls you've pulled. No god damn way should you be sitting there on Facebook.

The other thing that pisses me off an insane amount is people who feel the need to post that they are "with Charlotte, at Charlotte's house." Why the fuck do you think I'd want to know that? Maybe when I'm a trained sniper and want to blow a hole in your fat ass then yes... that information, admittedly, would be quite handy. But until I've taken a Ninja/Sniping course, I'm not interested. But the thing that really, REALLY annoys me, is when that person, using my example, Charlotte, actually goes to the trouble of getting her phone and even though her friend is at her house, she'll go on Facebook and start commenting/liking that piece of shit status update.

Jeez, I just read through that and realised I thought I'd let you know that I'm not in therapy. This blog isn't some sort of therapeutic tool haha, there's a chilled picture and I'll be sure to find a song later this evening when I get back from work! I'm sure that I'm not the only one that get's annoyed by these kind of things! :D

Those Annoying Questions

Don't you just hate it when someone asks you a question, and you know you know the answer, but it just wont come to you at that moment in time? It happens to me so much!

And to top it off, it's only once the person who asked you the question has left, than it finally springs into your head!

And other things that annoy me are like the one below. If you know the answer, let me know in the comments.

Smoke hate

So I'm sat by the fire outside in the garden and no matter where I go the smoke seems to follow me! Stupid thing, why won't It leave me alone. I'm thinking of investing in some goggles to stop it from stinging my eyes although I may loose any social credibility I may have once owned..

In The Heat Of It

My car gets hot really really quickly. Even with just me in it it warms up. Yeh I have air conditioning, but it just drinks the fuel, and having the windows open creates drag that uses up more fuel. Stupid car. Thought I'd post about it as it's annoying!

Toe Stubbing

Argh I just walked into the table leg and stubbed my toe. I fee like my foot is going to fall off it's so painful! Who leaves a table in the middle of the dining room?!?!

Layout update

I've just updated my layout. It's about time I had a change around here!

Let me know what you think

Just blow you nose on it!

Sometimes, I get really really annoyed with people ask me for a tissue. Mainly because they pronounce it "Tizz-you"


It's "Ti-shoe"

Walk The Plank

This whole planking craze is really annoying! It's everywhere, and it seems that people think they are awesome because they have laid down in a horizontal position on top of a park bench or a wall. You aren't awesome, you are just another sheep following a craze.

So how many of you have tried planking?

Also, the picture is Eliza Dushku taking a break from helping to build a trauma and healing rehabilitation center for Uganda's child soldiers. More info HERE 

Eating the fuel

It's 2.25am here in the UK and I've just got in from a job I had to do at short notice. I ended up having to drive 114.8 miles this evening to a club and back as part of my work. That's a third of the tank already gone, and I already shoved £45 in today :/ Not good. Oh well, I am exhausted, and I need to be up early to, surprise surprise, do some more driving....

Now on Facebook!

We are now on Facebook! If you have a Facebook account you can "like" our page and be kept up to date with all of our blog posts.


Ok this has been a HUGE annoyance of mine for the last few years.

In England, we have our recycling collected (plastics, glass and paper). Each type is sorted into little tubs (where I come from its blue for plastics, green for paper and black for glass). they very big, only the size an A3 piece of paper and about a foot deep, so not surprisingly, after a heavy weekend reading all the rubbish that is pushed through my mailbox, or drinking plenty of booze, sometimes the boxes tend to overflow. Take the paper tub for example, any normal person with a brain cell would think, "Oh, I know, I will use a cardboard box to put the rest of my recycling in. I can use A) a cereal box B) a box laying around the house or C) next time I'm at the supermarket, I will take home one of the FREE packing boxes they have under the counters"

But this, it seems, is not the case. Because I'm constantly seeing people who think it is ok to put their excess paper in a plastic bag! A plastic bag?! Are these people really that stupid?

Seriously annoys me.

And these people are allowed to vote and breed.

Amy Winehouse

After the death of singer Amy Winehouse on the 23rd of July, I posted this:
I think its very sad that it takes a "death" for people to "become a fan" in a sense. im sure there were many people who didnt like her, but now decided to run out and buy CDs (or download tracks). I think the best example of this happening was when Michael Jackson Died, and his sales increased dramatically, even more than when lennon or elvis died. Its a shame that we live in a society that cant appreciate good music until something drastic happens and the media push it in our faces.
Now it turns out her album Back To Black is the highest selling album of the decade. The album has shot up to number 1 on iTunes charts in every country. Billboard has reported that the album sold 37,000 copies within 36 hours of her death.

With sales like this, musicians nowadays are worth more dead than alive!

Damm desk

So I just rolled over and hit my funny bone on the desk next to me. Now my whole left arm is fuzzing.

Why call it a funny bone when it's not even funny, OR a bone?!

Don't EVER refer to Mega Bloks as LEGO

One thing that really makes my blood boil is when you go into a shop and you see boxes of Mega Bloks among the boxes of LEGO. You wouldn't put a Nokia brick in with the iPhones would you!

Mega Bloks are not LEGO, nor are they anywhere near the standard of LEGO.

When I was younger and I would find a box of loose LEGO at a car boot sale, I would sort through it and take out all the "fake" bricks and give it back to the person selling it!

I think this has to be one of my biggest annoyances. I haven't played with LEGO for years, since I was a child but it still gets on my nerves!

Also it's LEGO. Not LEGOS. It is not plural, it is a collective term like "hair". You don's say, "Ooh I like the colour of your hairs" do you!

Guest Post - Tights and Shorts

Time for a first here on Dudethatsannoying: a guest post! This time from Nahhan. Enjoy

One major hate that I have is when girls wear shorts with tights or leggings underneath.
Shorts are for the summer, tights are for the winter. If you're wearing shorts in the summer it should only be when it's warm enough to; if you're wearing shorts in the winter, well, you're just plain stupid.
The worst part about it is that most girls wear lacy tights which don't even keep you warm. Or they wear skin-coloured tights. Why pay for skin-coloured tights in the summer when you can just get your own legs out for free?
If it's too cold to wear shorts, wear trousers; if it's warm enough to wear shorts, don't wear tights! It's so simple yet so many people get it wrong all the time.
And THAT is what annoys me. Could you tell?

Virgin Millionaire's House Burnt Down

During a storm last night, around 4am local time a bolt of lighting hit the roof of Richard Branson's home on Necker Island. Around 20 people have escaped unharmed but the building has been completely destroyed. His blog reads:

Thank you for all your kind messages after the fire on Necker. We’re thankful that everyone is ok.
We had a tropical storm with winds up to 90mph. A big lightning storm came around 4am and hit the house. My son Sam and nephew Jack rushed to the house and helped get everyone out and many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90 year mum out of the main house to safety - she was wondering when a Director was going to shout CUT!

I shall just leave this you wish you were this flexible!

Ordering Food

So the other day I ordered a chicken burger from a chip shop. I wanted it plain, no salad, no mayo, no nuffin other than chicken. The waitress even checked to make sure that I didn't want salad, but when it arrived, IT WASN'T PLAIN!

This happens to me quite a lot. How hard is it to follow instructions!?

How annoying

The UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show LIVE In the Isle Of Wight

This Friday, my band, the UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show are hitting the town of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight to give Pink Floyd fans a treat for the ears with a full two hour set and a feast for the eyes with a spectacular light and laser show.

Our show spans almost three decades of Pink Floyd’s history, from the first track on their very first album to the last chimes of ‘The Division Bell’, the Floyd’s final studio album released in 1994.

We perform note-for-note classics such as ‘Astronomy Domine’, ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ and ‘Comfortably Numb’, as well as tracks from the seminal ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album.

We've put a lot of our time and investment into getting the performance right and getting the sound right, so we’re sure you’ll come away with the feeling that you’ve almost been in the same room as the real thing!

Feminizing Hitler

In his new book Secret Weapons: Technology, Science And The Race To Win World War II, Cardiff University professor Brain Ford makes a startling revelation: Desperate to bring the Second World War to a close, British spies sought to surreptitiously “feminize” Adolf Hitler by sneaking sex hormones into his food.
The forced gender reassignment, they hoped, would soften the Führer’s, well, furor. According to the declassified documents Prof. Ford used for his book, MI6 agents planned to use tasteless estrogen supplements that would go unnoticed by Hitler’s food testers.
“There were agents who would be able to get it into his food – it would have been entirely possible,” Ford says. The plot was scrapped at the last minute, for reasons unknown.

Tragic Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse Kills Five

Tragic Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse: Five people were killed and at least 45 were injured when an “isolated significant wind gust” caused a stage setup at the Indiana State Fair to collapse. State Police 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said the number of fatalities may rise.

Gov. Mitch Daniels said in a conference call to discuss emergency response that he believes the State Fair’s preparedness measures were adequate, calling the collapse a “freakish accident.” The Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration will be conducting an investigation of the incident alongside the State Fire Marshal.

Country music duo Sugarland were set to perform when State Police special operations commander Brad Weaver and the fair’s Executive Director Cindy Hoye made the decision to evacuate the crowd. Moments later, however, WLHK program director Bob Richards told the crowd the show was still on, though preparations should be made to find shelter in case the weather took a turn for the worse.

The collapse occurred seconds later.

The fair is closed today, but will reopen tomorrow. A public remembrance in honor of the victims will be held tomorrow morning at 9 AM.

Oh Dear...

Not annoying, just funny...

22 Fake Apple Stores Found in ONE City!

Ok, so a few weeks ago we heard about an American man living in china who had stumbled across an apple store in the city of Kunming in China, and we soon heard that another 4 had been found.

Now Chinese officials are saying there are 22 fake apples stores, all in this one city! In fact some stores tried so hard to be like the proper ones that they even dressed their staff in the same official apple store clothes and gave them all apple store-like lanyards.

The government have shut down at least 2 of the stores for trading without a license and the other shops have been told to stop using the logos as Chinese laws prohibit copying the "look and feel" of another company without permission.

It is not clear whether the shops being reprimanded were selling products sourced from Apple distributors in the country or grey market imports.

The Kunming retail watchdog said it would step up its monitoring efforts and set up a hotline through which the public can report unauthorised Apple shops they find.

Crazy?! First fake iPhones from china, now fully fledged fake shops!

Giant Kit-Kat

Unboxing the iPhone 5

Well, you guessed it, it's probably a fake (seeing as the iPhone 5 isn't due to be released for another month or so)

The video below was posted on youtube by ZAGG, a company who make "The InvisibleShield". Obviously a marketing stunt, but what a great way to get publicity!

I'm annoyed that, due to my contract, I wont be getting the iPhone 5 for another year (when 2 year contract runs out) and by that time, the iPhone 6 is sure to have arrived. Oh well.

M1 accident emergency lane blocked

This dude is a genius! There is a traffic jam on the M1 and he gets out and starts interviewing the people BLOCKING the emergency access lane (the hard shoulder).
In the comments, the cameraman (gavgav27) posts "
Ok, lets begin with I do indeed make many errors, im not a saint and i was actually breaking the law by walking down the carriageway. I was showing that they have just not considered the consequences of blocking the lane.
And the emergency vehicle didnt get down the hard shoulder with no problem at all... They had to wait at least 4-5 minutes for the cars that were blocking it to filter back into the main carriage way. 4-5 minutes can mean the difference of recovering quickly or becoming a vegetable for life.

What do you think?

Riot update

Just some before and after photos of some of the targets of the UK riots:
