          Having to keep up with what my kids think is funny or cool is annoying.

          Invariably it is a short phrase that becomes infused with a significant secret meaning a la Ok boomer, which I thought had to do with the Sooners.

          All these stupid slogans like let's go Brandon should be carved in wood, busted into splinters and shoved up the rears of the Twitter and Facebook users who share them.

          Other than that, nothing bothers me.

          Except Bears fans chanting fire Matt Nagy at his kids hs football game. These people should receive enemas with overinflated footballs

          But other than that, I'm cool with everything else.

          Except the governor who think school libraries in Texas are filled with porn. He should get whatever "porn" he finds shoved right up his base

          But really not much annoys me

            I forgot to add that my younger son asked for and received tickets to the Baylor/Villanova for his birthday. That game happened to be the day after his birthday. He’s not cheering for Villanova…

              I don’t know where to start, but will go with announcers of college football that try and explain a rule and don’t have any idea what the rule is, along with the talking head that explains it but it’s an NFL rule and not an NCAA rule. Which leads to thousands thinking it’s the rule and then go to social media and complain how their team got screwed by the refs.

                Announcers generally. I like Tim Brando a lot. Most of the rest I can't even find words in English to describe. I have to use the Spanish phrase El Stinko.

                    Those first two feel potentially contradictory.

                  - TCU alums that represent us poorly
                  - educational administrators who don’t put the students’ interests first
                  - escalators
                  - toenail clippers
                  - what college football has become

                  Trump, trumpers, MAGA'ers, anti-vaccers, pro ivermectiners, believers in crazy false myths about COVID and the vaccines, believers and purveyors of the Big Lie on the "stolen" election, politicians who are working to restrict voter access,

                  The idiotic car insurance campaign with the creepy guy and his creepy bird. Everything about it grinds my gears: the creepy guy and the stupid bird, the use of yellow in everything, the theme music, the incessant repetition of "you only pay for what you get" and almost nothing else. Please explain how that differs from other policies in which you can choose your level of coverage.. Even their commercials that don't have the creepy guy and the bird are incredibly stupid.

                  Universities that dishonestly use the cover of COVID to permanently and significantly reduce their contributions to employee retirement accounts.

                    Yeah...there was no faculty union or strike ever at my university even after some 70s idiotic admin decisions got the university on censure...until they started taking pension "holidays". Union came soon after and strike followed. No more "holidays". Most faculty considered that even more important than salaries (which were in the bottom 10% in the country at the time).

                    Faculty now sit on the pensions boards, most are economists.

                    Compensation is already below the median for comparable universities (except for the top administrators whose compensation is top 10% for comparable positions in comparable universities) and the reduction in retirement contributions made it worse. Applications and enrollment are at record levels so it is not as though the university is hurting

                    University administrators are assholes. That's pretty much universal.

                  Channel 8 had a report on the QAnon people at Dealey Plaza. I felt a lot of pity for them. They had mixed God and politics and conspiracy theory so completely that they don't have a prayer of any sane thought.

                  They all came across as capable of being perpetually swindled. The ladies tended to have one of two similar looks. Prim church lady or good time Southern lady. The guys were all baseball cap wearers unless they were wearing a flag
