So you just want to design and remodel your own house which you own.

So the building department won’t let you build it unless you pay them $4,000 and also hire an engineer for $4,000 because they discovered a small inactive earthquake fault a quarter-mile from your house.

The building department won’t sign off your building permit unless you have half-a-dozen smoke alarms which the insurance lobbyists write into the building code.

After your job is completed, spiders make their invisible webs in the new ceilings. One spider crawls inside each smoke alarm and makes a nest.

At 5.15 am this morning, a spider farts inside a smoke alarm, setting all of the alarms off.

You have to get up and shut the breaker off, but the alarms are still going off because the insurance code fixed it so all the alarms have battery back up.

As usual, the alarms continue to beep even without power and batteries. As usual, you have to totally disconnect several alarms to make it quiet again for your wife and two sleeping kids.

You are thinking: I sure am glad they put radioactive Americium 241 in these devices for my protection, how thoughtful of them.

Now your oatmeal and coffee are all stone cold and you will be late for work as a bonus.

Poor ridiculous First-World dweller.

I second Gene's nomination of rrider's worthy polemic.
I can't believe I went to the building dept yesterday and didn't feel my
blood pressure go up more than 30 or 40 points. Good thing I was only
after a permit for a new panel which has already been done for a year (shhhh).
Of course the reason I need the permit is so Edison will come out and run
new wires to replace the ones THE FUKKING SQUIRRELS HAVE BEEN CHEWING ON!!!

Smoke detectors are a joke. The people that need them don't have them or
can't afford to put batteries in them.

Now, a serious FWP: retards on the internet chess planet who abort a game
because they don't like your opening move. WEAK!

WTF with this pink La Boulange bullsh#t???!!! Crappy-tasting, totally overpriced pastries have completely usurped the former mediocre overpriced pastries.

The fact that I can't get my seasonal pumpkin scone from Starbucks is a tradgedy.
A TRADGEDY I tell you!!!!

F*#kers. Hope they burn in hell.

I wrote a letter to the district manager and got a polite response with a card for a free drink. Not exactly what I inquired about.

The place I bought in Playa del Carmen, Well...My ocean view is partially obstructed by a giant palm tree. The real problem is finding a trustworthy person to housesit my place in Montana in the winter and someone to watch over my place in Mexico in the summer...

Mercedes refuses to produce enough E63 AMG S wagons to meet demand.
Is this some sort of payback?
