He told me his friend had it done for about $50 CDN at some other place, and he wanted the same sort of deal. He wouldn't believe me when I told him the glass master *ALONE* would cost in excess of $200 CDN, and that no plant would in their right mind replicate only 1 disc from a glas master, becasue it would not be worth their setup time and expenses. He was offended when I suggested that maybe the single pressed disc his friend got was just a silver CD-R. He told me he was quite capable of telling the difference between the two types of discs. When I asked him how he could tell, he wouldn't answer. The phone call ended shortly there after, with him saying he would go check with his friend... he was either stupid, insane, or trying to trick me into doing something he thought should be possible. I'm betting on the first two.
I don't mind DVD dash R, and I think DVD minus R is pretty much the standard, but *NOT* DVD negative R, that makes it sound so bad! no wonder people think DVD+R is better
What about those numnutz who have the ole "eventual left" blinker goin on down the highway.They can't possibly not here that damn thing blinkin in their car.
I just thought I would add to NoSmartz's list
I tend to just blink my headlights in time with the indicator for a few seconds, usually does the trick and I often get a thanks as well.
I usually get in front of em and blink my blinkers left,right,left,right until they get the picture.THEY NEVER DO!!American drivers S#$!!!!

That would be misconstrued here because left-right-left indicator means thanks to the person behind on a motorway who's just let you in.
Tell you what I hate most of all, it's people who will insist on overtaking on a dual-lane road right next to a junction where traffic might be joining from the sliproad. It's downright dangerous, and leaves everyone having to brake hard a lot of the time because of one sh*thead who has to get to work 5 minutes quicker. I've seen more than one accident where people have done this on a cold, icy day and caused carnage. Grrrrrr....
Another one of my pet hates is television continuity announcers who give away the entire plot of a programme just before it starts. "And now on Tyne Tees, Dave tells Sarah his deep dark secret, Paul ends up in hospital and Gail is burgled in today's episode of Crap Soap". WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!? I don't have to watch the *&*%?> thing now!!! Why don't you tell me the f*&ng football scores while you're at it you stupid bint!!! Whatever happened to using your 10 or 20 seconds to promote other programmes or generally take the poke fun at the channel's output? I enjoyed that.....
