    The fact that Maroon 5 didn't perform Sweet Victory at the Super Bowl, and some awful rap was performed instead.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    DUDE! SERIOUSLY!

    I had to sing that song to myself in the shower just to cool off.

    It's a good thing that I didn't watch the show then.

    So I’m making a top 10 worst films shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 video, but I’m angry with 1) the fact that I had to go out of my way to download episodes I already have captured from my personal fan tapes that my dad recorded back in the 90’s on my old Windows XP computer before it kicked the bucket in late 2015, because AdObE PrEmIrE wOn’T tAkE wMv FiLeS oN mAc, so I had to download episodes from YouTube to get mp4 files, but more importantly, 2) I can’t find any episode upload of Castle of Fu Manchu because it looks like they were all blocked. I tried uploading my personal WMV file on YouTube so I could download it as mp4, but alas, it got blocked. So I tried converting it to an mp4 online to which none of them would accept it, tried downloading a converting file, but hur hur, there will be a watermark without the activation key, and for whatever reason, I’m having issues logging into my dailymotion account without them asking me to reset my password and even that’s becoming an issue on there. Okay.

    Guhhh, I’m close to screaming in my pillow. :grr:

    Well, I mean, Adobe Premiere won't import .mov files on Windows, so I had to download QuickTime, because somehow that makes .mov files compatible in Adobe Premiere on a Windows computer.

    Yeah, I mean, whether we like it or not, certain files are really encoded and formatted especially for Windows computers, while others for Macs.

    I'm just glad that mp4's are a really decent "universal" file format, because mpg's and avi's both had their flaws.

    MPG files are kinda weird sometimes. I'm currently having a couple issues with that type: they won't display on Windows Media Player if you use Windows 10, and more frustratingly, they can't be used at all in Windows Live Movie Maker anymore. I use that for most of my YouTube projects on my Windows 7 desktop PC and it used to support MPGs, but I think after I upgraded to the latest version of WLMM a few years ago, now they just crash the program.

    The first issue I mentioned was so aggravating initially that I had to install VLC Media Player to play those files now. It's not a big deal, but Windows Media Player really is the kind I prefer.

    mpg's almost seem like they were meant to stop working after a while. Like, way back when (this is 10+ years ago) if I downloaded videos off YouTube or such to save them, I would more often than not download and save them as mpg's because they usually wouldn't be as large in file size as wmv's . . . but then, those mpg files would just stop playing properly after a month or so: sometimes you'd get just video and no audio, sometimes you'd get nothing but clicks and pops for audio, and sometimes they just wouldn't play at all. So, up until I got my current computer back in 2012 and could actually handle mp4's, I had to either download and save videos as either wmv's or avi's (the later of which I always find gives you really tinny-sounding audio).

    That's what I had to do as well.

    So, adobe premiere is being an Oscar and just somehow effed up on some of my audio clips that I put in that they now, for whatever reason, just don’t play anymore even though it shows wavelengths through the clips.

    Not only that, but I had to move everything to my external because my Mac was almost low on space from downloading MST episodes, and of course, premiere doesn’t want to be a big boy and just re-locate where they are. I swear, it wasn’t like this before.

    Well, now that I got my Mac cleaned up, it looks like I’m gonna have to finish my top 10 worst mst films tomorrow when I was hoping to have had it done today. ******* terrific.

    My touchpad on my laptop stopped working last night and do not know why that even is.

    Still not fixed today, and it looks like either a trip to Best Buy might have to be made or to contact Lenovo.

    Just ******* great.

    My dog Buster tore up his little puppy bed into a bunch of pieces and made a HUGE mess all over the yard. Guess who has to clean it up now? I think you know the answer considering Buster doesn't even hands to pick things up.

    When will I ever learn that Google will never do anything to look into and/or fix any problems/errors/bugs/glitches/whatever you report to their support team? "Oh, we don't know what's causing the problem, so there's nothing we can do." "Oh, we don't have the time to look into this, you're on your own." "Oh, you wouldn't have any problems if you switched to Chrome." Those seem to be some of their favorite stock responses to such reports.

    I decided to try Reddit again after getting bored with it, and I made a post in a Mercari subreddit (Because I sell stuff on there) about how a buyer blocked me for giving them a 3 star rating (They cancelled their order and uncancelled it a couple times, low-balled me, asked the item to be shipped at different times. However, I forgot the charger to what I was shipping. I still shipped the charger and even added a free item for the trouble and they were nice about it.).

    Everyone basically got huffy and rude with me because I was apparently, "revenge rating", and " and "I should've given a better rating because I was given grace (And a surprising 5 star rating) for forgetting to pack the charger up with the item I sold.". Some people even told me I should just stop selling altogether, and another person even went as far as finding the exact item I sold (And my profile) telling me that I should be lucky it sold at all.

    3 stars is just average to me, and I was just being honest. Didn't mean any harm, just thought it was kinda funny to get blocked. Wasn't being rude either.

    I deleted the post, and my Reddit account later that day after I was sick of getting called Petty and Stupid. I was really ticked off. Like, yeah, maybe I shouldn't have posted about it thinking it was funny, but they all came down hard on me and it just really bothered me that an ENTIRE GROUP of people were all saying the same insults instead of trying to help me understand how 3 stars is viewed as terrible.

    They've been a troll playground for as long as I can remember - in fact, I still find it hard to fathom how it's somehow become a legit social media platform in recent years.

    What do you sell on Mercari?
