The fractal and other pet peeves

Of all the things that the Transmogrifer encounters in cyberspace, the fractal is the most annoying. I don't know why, but fractals bug the excrement out of me. So I tried putting a simple one in Photoshop and fixing it:
The fractal always looks good in thumbnail
form but is an utter disaster in hi rez.

The Transmogrifer says: make a fractal, go to jail...
oh well, next peeve...

Tinted auto glass and ethnic automobiles:

This is the quintessential pimp mobile.
Tinted glass to piss off law enforcement,
confuse other drivers and
make the operator feel like a big time celebrity or
legend in his own mind. Ethnic tires and wheels to
indicate a state of conspicuous consumption and
an audio system to liquefy the internal organs
of anyone (but the owner and his passengers) within
a 500 yard radius.
These are actually gaudy, noisy urban assault vehicles

great for stoned sadistic pimps
negotiating bodies in the darkness of ghetto night
on the mean streets of their beloved "hoods"
Say what muthafucka!

Noise health effects are the health consequences of elevated sound levels. Elevated workplace or other noise can cause hearing impairment, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, annoyance, sleep disturbance, and decreased school performance. Changes in the immune system and birth defects have been attributed to noise exposure, but evidence is limited.[1]presbycusis may occur naturally with age,[2] in many developed nations the cumulative impact of noise is sufficient to impair the hearing of a large fraction of the population over the course of a lifetime.[3][4] Noise exposure has also been known to induce tinnitus, hypertension, vasoconstriction and other cardiovascular impacts.[5] Beyond these effects, elevated noise levels can create stress, increase workplace accident rates, and stimulate aggression and other anti-social behaviors.[6] The most significant causes are vehicle and aircraft noise, prolonged exposure to loud music, and industrial noise.
Final pet peeve:
The innocuous conversations about the
weather and "how are you doing?"
If you answer that you will classified as
a bore. What is the point of socializing if we are just
going to converse about what we just ate,
roadsigns etc.
Oh, I guess the interesting stuff is to be left to
media so we don't have to get under
the surface. I consider the innocuous conversation
as a total wastes of time or little deaths
imposed in preperation for the big one. Let's
imagine that we have 10 seconds to live:
would you like to hear the history of
thermos bottles?

None of my organs have keys.
