    Getting up early to sign on to classes, clicking the sign-on button at 6:01 because you got distracted by CW and finding that the one you wanted is already full. Outrageous.

    Finding multiple "Fw: blah blah blah" mails in my inbox. The only things worse are "Fw: Fw: blah blah blah" mails, and they don't seem to be all that rare.

    Red Bull

    I'm sick to death of their goddamn saturation marketing. Naturally we have their incredibly ******** and annoying TV ads with the dribbly cartoons and unfunny sight gags, but we also have the Air Races, the F1 teams (two, FFS), Football teams, NASCAR teams, sponsorship of seemingly every ****ing athlete on the planet, sponsorship if any event even vaguely related to youth and/or "extreme sports", billboards, those ridiculous cars with the giant cans that roam about seemingly ****ing everywhere, the TV show "World of Red Bull" (yeah, I totally want to tune into what amounts to a 30 minute commercial wankfest promoting a bloody energy drink) and on and on and on.

    The drink itself is now barely an afterthought compared to the ubiquity of the marketing monster it's spawned - and I thought Vodafone's worldwide branding was ridiculous. I will not drink the damn stuff.

    I can count the amount of times on one hand that I have had a can of Red Bull. Never caught up in the hype of "energy drinks".

    Only really got into it when the red bull parties came to our student college, Hot chicks in tight clothes with free red Bull...chip in with 3 mates to buy a bottle of Jager, and you are in for one loose night.

    Never bought a can of it, only had it with Jager or when it's free.

    A mate of mine went out with a chick the other week and for whatever reason he was a bit nervous and so he drank two red bulls and had coffee (not the other form of coffee) with her a few hours later and was then complaining to me how he got so little sleep the night before.
