Cricket

People who like cricket tend to be know-it-all upholders.

If I meet someone who likes cricket, I’ve learned just to politely end the conversation and walk away - because further down the line you’ll learn that they’re a traffic warden or they work in some pretend management position regarding health and safety or something... obsessed with rules.

One night in our halls of residence one of the lads was playing a Pink Floyd album after s certain amount of "relaxants". He was getting more and more engrossed in the music as a particular track built up "listen to this bit now" he urged us, his appreciation of The Floyd now reaching fever pitch. At that precise moment the fire alarm went off.

Two rules of kick-about 5 a side:
1. Don't turn up in yellow boots
2. If you do turn up in yellow boots, don't be shat at football

Reality tv- why spend your life watching someone else live theirs.
X factor/ the voice- how many sob stories can you listen to?
Politicians- never answer the question, but criticise the other side.
Hot topics- it’s on the news, it’s on social media, then forgotten about with nothing achieved.
People who say they support a club then slag off the team/manager/directors/other fans. I’ll never get that one.....

The double slit experiment.

And cyclists wearing pro-cycling fancy dress every time they go for a ride. I don’t dress like Usain Bolt if I go for a jog. You’re 50, overweight and admirably trying to stave off coronary heart disease for a few years. But you’re not in Team Sky.

Just never got into it, although I tried my best. I think I watched 3 or 4 seasons before I gave up.

As per the OP, I recognise that it’s probably great TV, it just didn’t do anything for me.
