Ten things I probably could've lived without

10. Art Appreciation
Seriously? There's a class in college on the proper way to like art. Art promotes freedom of expression, so I imagine artists want their audience to have freedom of liking.

9. Video Games.
Don't get me wrong, I love spending long hours beyond the sun's embrace to stare at pixels and level bars. It's awesome, but just imagine how much more I'd get done if I didn't have to play VikingBeast 2: Rise of the Asgardonaughts.

8. Pokemon
It's kind of a cop out, I know, but thanks to Pokemon's presence in all forms of media, this pocket Juggernaut deserves to stand on it's own. Why? Because Pokemon is like Herpes. It stays with you all your life.

7. RC Helicopters
I can barely drive a car, but for only forty bucks I can buy something even more complicated and lethal that's classed as a toy. Naturally, I'm all for making the world a more dangerous place for the carotid arteries of small mammals, but I just break so many of them.

6. Vocaloid
Thanks to Hatsune Miku and the gang, I can never let anybody hit the shuffle button on my i-pod; ever.

5. Shoes for less than sixty dollars
If you ever wanted to witness an object disintegrate into oblivion like a star orbiting a black hole, buy cheap shoes. At the end of the month, you will have no idea as to what plain of existence the other half of your shoe has gone.

4. Norton
I can't believe Microsoft outdoes Norton for free! Norton! These are the guys that promise on a regular bases that you won't become a Howard Hughes-esque shut-in wearing tissue boxes, and peeing into milk bottles.

3. Airfare
The money I've spent on plane tickets is somewhere in the four digits, I'm sure, and it's all gone to ferrying me back and fourth between the foggy wineries of valley foothills and tick-infested marshes, columns of crackling plasma, and venomous snakes.

2. My lineage
Knowing that twenty-five percent of my DNA is bathed in a torrent of maple syrup means I can never rip on Canada again.

1. My school experience up to highschool
A lot of people have seen the movie "Lord of the Flies". I don't need to see it nor read it. I lived in that anarchistic dystopian world for thirteen years. I bet if I wrote a novel about my time on just the school bus, it'd read like "Lord of the Flies". All I will say for now is that if you're reading this, and you're still in school, try your damnedest to gain the trust of the jocks. Pork rind tossing ape people thrive in this environment. If you find a way to live under their testosterone oozing shadow, then you will survive school unscathed.

You shouldn't feel this way in your early twenties because it's only going to get worse.

My suggestions to you are:
1. Avoid art history as a major.
2. Never admit openly that you listen to Hatsune Miku or anime theme songs.
3. Do not buy cheap shoes, especially cheap dress shoes,as they die with a quickness.

You can't do shit about blood.

Foolish woman! The crust is what brings unity to the bread. It is the beginning, the end- bindings of a universal constant that spans all generations and cultures! It is a keeper of the bread's inner vitality, and to eat the crust is to honor bread's ten-thousand year journey at our sides.

As far as everything else, I totally agree with you, especially about Microsoft Access.

10. Excessive fanservice. There's hentai if you need it. Too much fanservice ruins a show.
09. Reality TV. This includes idol tryout shows. Most of it isn't real, and it's an insult to pretend it isn't.
08. Celebrities. I'm talking about the socially accepted form of stalking of the paparazzi, and the fans that encourage it. Some lewd girl on tv or football player doesn't deserve all your money and attention. Nobel Prize winners do.
07. Science deniers. Science; it works, bitches. Vaccines eradicated polio and many other diseases, the connection to autism was a hoax. Climate change is indeed affected by our output of excessive CO2 also.
06. The idea that college is needed for everything. No, it isn't. You can be taught almost anything on the job. College is great, but it's mostly a business. You should still get a college education, but a job requiring it doesn't always mean a high schooler couldn't do the job.
05. Greed. It's the root of all evil, end of story. A little greed is natural, we've evolved by wanting to be the best. Wanting others happiness and belongings just to satisfy yourself is wrong.
04. Bad internet. Come on, I just want to play an online game, stop disconnecting!
03. Fashion. This includes everything from designer clothing, to beauty pageants, to dog shows. Just another scam of society telling you what you need to look and act like (and demanding all your cash), lest you be trash.
02. Fake friends. If you wouldn't trust them with your child or your most expensive and fragile belongings, they aren't your friend.
01. Religion. "Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion." -Steven Weinberg- Even if something makes you feel comfortable, consoles you when a loved one dies, or gets you through a tough time; if it's a lie, it's a lie. You should not believe in lies.
