    My first world problem.

    My gas guzzling beast of a car only has 1/4 of a tank left and I have no money to pay for gas. D:

    1996 Toyota 4runner.. Pretty sure it gets like 18 mpg on the highway. I mean it's not terrible.. but it's worse my dads Ford F150 :p

    Edit: just googled it, and when it's in 4wd (and it's winter so it's basically in 4wd permanently) it gets 17 MPG City and 20 MPG on the Highway (18 Combined)

    I have to spend three hours on the city bus to attend a hippie production of 'As You Like It' tomorrow for English class. Blech. Plus the city busses have a crappy schedule on Sundays.
    I'm pretty sure that for the price I paid for the ticket is about what it would cost to attend a non-hippie production for a Sunday matinee performance at the Guthrie.

    Field trips are a rant? What planet do you live on?

    I don't want to spend five hours on a city bus and in a hippie theater on a Sunday afternoon when I could either spend five hours to watch the same play at the Guthrie or simply track down a good movie version of it.

    Generaly field trips are supposed to be mildly entertaining. Any entertainment value the play itself has is overshadowed by the prospect of spending three hours getting bounced around on an uncomfortable, slightly smelly, city bus surrounded by the types of people who use city buses!

    Well I ate nearly a whole pizza, and a bowl of Mac and Cheese for dinner. I just felt like a little more Mac and Cheese and that was a big mistake.

    For the third time, youtube: I do not want to watch "My Little Amnesia." Please stop putting it into my recommended bar. The thumbnail image is bad enough already. :mad:

    I think the thread title is okay. There are always people complain simply because they did not get the title and they would complain even if it was the best title ever.

    This is not good.

    Also another rant is that I somehow managed to miss two pages of rants. I'm bad with this.

    No offense but thats a rant? Well I dont know about the rest of the world but in Communist Yugoslavia you celebrate if you get conscripted. We abolished our conscription in 2006, because of our you-know-what. I must say I would've never guessed that Singapore has a conscription. Anyways good luck and will you be able to stay in touch with us?

    I couldn't agree more. I do not understand why some people would celebrate being drafted.

    Does Singapore have mandatory conscription or is it a raffle your name gets put into?

    I don't think there is a good movie version of it. The Brannagh movie had a clever setting but was pretty meh. I of course kicked ass in my school's production last year, but good luck finding any tapes or torrents.

    People ranting about the thread title of Random Rants is definitely a First World Problem. So the title is REALLY fitting.
