5 Things That Piss Me Off About (most) Modern Action Movies
- "Bullet Time" used in the big fight scene.
- Shots so tight, you have no idea what's going on in the scene.
- Hackers dressed stereotypically: black clothes, knit cap on head, sarcastic smirk.
- Computers that say crap like, 'access granted' in a clear woman's voice.
- Gratuitous product placement (yeah, I'm looking at you "Blade Trinity")
5 Things That Suck About Labor Day
- After this weekend, it's hot enough to go swimming, and all the pools will be closed.
- That sinking feeling you get that school is less than 72 hours away.
- The pressure you feel trying to shoehorn an entire summer's worth of fun into a 3-day weekend.
- It'll still be hot out and you can't wear shorts and flip-flops
- It's the "unofficial" start of Fall... sigh...

5 Things No Longer On McDonald's Menu That I Miss
- The McRib (that's a gimmie, though)
- The McDLT
- The Arch Deluxe (bacon AND dijon mustard, what a combo!)
- The Double Big Mac (when you're really, really hungry!)
- The McLean Deluxe (I don't miss the dry, flavorless burger, though...)
