I don't know which one it is but one of them breathes heavy into the microphone and you can hear it.  It's just such a terrible sound to hear over the radio.  

I think it's Bulldog because he's fatter and they tend to breath heavier.  

Yes I think that would be Bulldog.

 

He also has a strange habit of not breathing at all while he talks, such that a long sentence leaves him totally without air by the end.  You can hear how the last word or 2 are difficult for him to say and they drop in tone/volume b/c he is out of air.

 

Not all the time, but often he does this.  It makes you want to take a deep breath and exhale slowly!

I guess I got one.  Ads on webpages that play videos.  Like on ESPN.com.  They start playing and you can't figure out where the audio is coming from. :wallbash:

The ones from adult websites are the worst. You try to be a decent human and mute the actual video, then out of nowhere comes the sounds of fornication to everyone's dismay.

And on a related note, websites that auto play embedded videos unrelated to the article you are reading.

Yes I really wish videos would be under control of users; I have a lot of issue especially at work for we are not supposed to be  playing videos. Tried flash block but that does not work with all videos.


It is worst at places like CBS and ESPN where even after you scroll down they still show it in ANOTHER window.

Not to nitpick, but it shouldn't be to everyone's dismay. I'm hoping the fornicators are having a good time....

Not sure I can (some browser settings are controlled by work) but how do you do it for Chrome?

I got home one night to a Dodge Charger taking up two spots in my apartment complex. I called the tow truck company that patrols the place at night. Not only did I get to see it towed away, I sat there with a cigar in my mouth, glass of bourbon in my hand, and watched the dude come out and get pissed. Had no idea it was me.


That’s awesome! Bravo

When someone texts when we're watching a show or movie. It's so distracting to me.

Wow, they can text you AND make you stop to look at your phone?  That does suck.

It's worth the wait :D

I couldn't stop chuckling while I took a dump in Morgan Freeman's toilet.
