    When the BBC (usually Paxman) refers to 2009 as "Twenty O Nine".

    Who the fuck says that?!!

    @billythekid I have a good rant on it at least 5 times a day!

    The nominalisation of the word "racist". I just think it works better as an adjective.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I hate when Americans with strong accent (Tim Cook is an excellent example) say "worwrarwrld" instead of "world". My blood runs cold everytime.

    Oh god this really annoys me :( When people pronounce the year wrong on tv/radio, they just come across as trendy wankers trying to sound hip :/ It's 'two thousand and thirteen' NOT 'Twenty thirteen'!

    @DrStrangelove Are you sure about this? It sounds like someone having a stroke!

    Who was it who pronounced "Mirror" as "Mirrrrrrrr" on The Big Breakfast?

    I've seen about six "digital download"s in the past 24 hours. Thank fuck they clarified that the downloads were digital. I even saw someone just say "digital" when they meant "download". Sweet Jesus!

    Well, you're wrong. Or did you enjoy your big party at the end of one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine?

    It's syllabilistically superior to say twenty thirteen, as well, instead of looping your tongue around the ridiculous time-wastage of TWO THOU SAND AND THIR TEEN. Your method hasn't been superior since twenty hundred (and, in fact, it being the best way in 2000 is probably the reason we were lumbered with freaks wanting to read out full numbers ever since...)

    And that's why I hate Stanley Kubrick.

    That reminds me "This holiday season" annoys the fuck out of me.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    @beastmaster It annoys me too! Also if anyone ever says to me in person 'Happy holidays' then I won't be held responsible for my actions :/

    This one's been annoying me for awhile now even though I sometimes find myself about to use it. It's when people say "Am I the only one that...", "Is it just me..." or any other variation on those. Obviously sometimes it's ok, but the majority of times it's people using it for something stupid. A few times I've seen people say something along the lines of "Am I the only one who doesn't find Family Guy funny?". "There's 7 billion people on this planet, of course you're not!"

    It shouldn't annoy me anywhere near as much as it does!

    People beginning their sentences with "So, ...". It is a growing epidemic and it makes me want to strangle people.

    I've decided that XBone has started to irritate me. I hope it's not going to be taken up in the long term.

    Heh. XBoner.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Well an analogue download is the name for doing a big poo so I think it works quite well.

    "My bad"

    Your bad WHAT?????

    Doesn't make any sense. Its an americanism which is fine but for some reason Brits have started saying it along with butt instead of ARSE!

    I swear if anyone in the UK starts saying fanny instead or arsehole I'm leaving the country.

    Xbone is awesome and I hope it becomes the new staple sexbox name.

    "lowest hanging fuit" is the worst.

    Suck my lowest hanging fruit!

    I think Xbone has already stuck, if only on this forum.

    Xbone(er) is fitting name since Microsoft intends to bugger everyone up the ring piece with it.
