Think it was already mentioned pages ago but dirty b@stards not washing their hands in public toilets. Was in the one at our local shopping centre the other day and as I was washing my hands, I could see people in the mirror behind me just walking out without bothering :evil: . Lazy, dirty gits.

I second that....was washing my hands the other week at ASDA's, a bloke was in with his little boy, his boy comes out the cubicle, goes over to wash his hands, cant quite reach the basin then his dad pulls him away and just goes "come on that's alright, lets go find mummy"

Looks at me smiles and walks out! It wasn't the kids fault but that was (excuse this..) piss poor education for his little boy. I assume he would then just go walking round the store touching eveyrthing......mmmmm...nice!

Filler episodes for any series. By definition thats all they really do, fill out a series without having any significant bearing on the story and its just a waste of my time and money.

Im a big Naruto fan and i was quite digusted to find that there are 5 Boxsets totalling 65 episodes of all filler between the official end of the first series and the beginning of the Shippuden series. In fact there are over 70 episodes since the filler begins halfway through box set 6.1. Im lucky to have read the Manga books before so i knew when the filler had begun and ensured i didnt waste around £60 on the filler boxsets but i feel bad for anyone that did continue to buy them without this knowledge, waiting for the series to pick up with the main story again. I just dont see the point in these side stories where Naruto meets all these other characters which will never be referenced ever again or be included in the future.

Why must something have a significant bearing on the story to warrant inclusion? If it's a heavily story-driven drama, that's fair enough, but for a light-hearted comedy that doesn't really have any story anyway?

In that case i wouldnt mind so much. But yes when it comes to a heavily story driven drama i dont want to sit through "flashback" episodes that basically just re-tell what we already know or steer off the path for no good. Maybe when i said "any series" i should have changed it to "certain series"

In the case of Naruto, the filler is also of poor quality. The animation is noticably sloppier and re-uses parts again. Even in the non filler episodes they drag out certain scenes with CONTINUOUS flashbacks to older episodes which weve already been reminded of again and again. Just ticks me off sitting through an entire box set without much happening when the Manga had it all done in about 30 pages.

The word "people" - as in, "come on people". Usually appears in films were a gung-ho military commander shouts at his soldiers. "Stay alert people."

Oh, f**k off.
