I am exactly the opposite, but then again many people in Poland are regardless of their self-esteem or ego. We are not are being raised in a champion's mentality like many Americans are for instance.
I suppose I should add for some I think the "screw you I'm perfect" mentality is a defense mechanism and they don't feel that way deep down. I was mostly talking about if you unknowingly have social habits that make you seem like a bitch or something, and someone points them out, it would be simply silly IMO not to take them into account. Been there done that and it is painful :tears:.

The three most overrated rock albums in history are (in order):

1) The Who - Who's Next
2) The Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
3) Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon

Note: These aren't the three worst albums in rock history (although "Who's Next is pretty rubbish) but the three most overrated.
Of all the albums usually topping the all time best lists (and there are a lot), the first that can't come as overrated to me is Pet Sounds. This one is really the kind of album I'm pretty sure to never change my mind about. You come to think "at least people agree on this one and it's right". I'm now waiting for a post hating on this album since it's the right thread. :eek:h:

As a fan I agree. I prefer "The Beach Boys Today!" for albums, and it has no hugely personal favourite singles either, although "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" is a personal theme :eek:h:.

Just read it and while reading it, kept thinking "and why the hell do you think your unability to love a record was worth an article?" :eek:h:

Pet Sounds has the details and the sum of the parts. The details are fascinating while the overall sounds like an enchanted cathedral.

And yes Aaron, Today! is superb too. If we have to compare it to Pet Sounds, I'd say the latter is more "baroque" sounding, more elevating and haunted.

I really wish there were no holidays...at all...and everyone who worked full time got THE SAME AMOUNT of time off per year to be taken whenever you want. There are too many stupid holidays where only some (a few) have to work and the rest are off and no productivity happens. Those who do have to work and aren't on some artificial 2-week slough-off have to deal with the frustration of no communication. So our work drags, too.

People wonder why shit never gets done...the whole world stops on the same days (or WEEKS) every year.

I am an equal opportunity defender of all the WTA champions from Court (the player, not the Pastor) through Serena as fairly decent, good people. I like Court and King, Evert and Navratilova, Graf and Seles through Hingis, Henin and the Williams Sisters etc. Everybody hates that.

They say in Gambia, they have both Christian and Muslim holidays to accommodate both religions. Including others like Independence Day, etc. And when a holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is a holiday. Imagine your horror of planning long-weekends with family while others in essential services and other service industry are waking up at 05.00 to go work.

Out of all PC crazes, so called "fat shaming" is most riddiculous...

Tell ya something- if you're fuckin' obese pig, you deserve every shame you got, and I AM gonna shame you... You deserve being mocked, joked and riddiculed- and its for your own good.

Exceptions are children with retarded parents who overfeed them (after all they don't control their diet themselves), and people with underlying medical disorders.

Football (soccer) is boring.
Social media platforms such s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are turning many people into self-obsessed narcissists.
