    I never ever laughed at the show Friends . It's not funny , it's not fun . Everyone else thinks it's the balls but I always thought it was shit,
    Big Bang Theory is another show I think blows but people love .

    What shit do you just not get ?

    Howard related because he blows now but some Kool Aid drinkers still love him and his lame shit .

    When I first saw the commercials for Friends I could have vomited. All 6 of them dancing around and acting a fool in that fountain. What a total piece of crap it looked like. Then years later somehow I left it on and loved it. I watch the reruns every night and laugh my ass off. I can't help it, I love that show.
    That and Seinfeld. Everything else is crap, except the Soup and Tosh.0 and maybe a few others.
    Anything dramatic is crap. I don't love Raymond or Modern Family or the BBT. So much crap.

    Professional football. I love college ball; but pro ball has become so over produced, over dramatized, nose bleed ticket prices, endless product tie-ins and bullshit controversies. I gave up years ago, and don't give a shit about it anymore. I honestly don't know why anyone else does either. Yet it's like the Kardashians of the sports' world: annoying as shit, but successful and impossible to avoid.

    Then again, it's personal on some level: they put Levi's stadium not too far from where I live and now those fuckers have blocked off my favorite workout trail on Sundays (because, you know, the 49s are so damn important we have to treat the area around the stadium like the President and Congress are located there at that time).

    I don't get twitter, facebook, or smart phones...think it doesn't make sense at all and have no use for it at my job or in my personal life and don't understand why it all costs so much too. Why use twitter when you can just call me and we can talk? For me facebook is for really popular social people, which is not me at all, so I shy away from it. My job pays for my phone and I have no reason to get a smart phone with apps, internet etc. It just is something I don't get at all. Now let me have it!

    I'm not a huge fan of sitcoms, but I have watched a few episodes of Big Bang, and it definitely does NOT suck. It's quite clever if you're into the whole comic-book-fanboy genre. Friends sucked the big one. Not funny. Not clever. Not anything. Pure drivel.

    I don't get jeans that are belted below or midway down your ass. I don't get it. I think it would be hard to walk. And it looks bad, and stupid.

    Oh, I didn't get Friends either and never watched it.

    im with you on that. I dont get low rise. Thats why i have my trousers custom made with long crotches.

    also, i dont watch television. I have a very low tolerance for the occasional bit of television that i get subjected to. Notice how im not saying tv..

    Reality shows -- nothing real about them
    Twitter -- what, email and texting isn't good enough for you?
    Rap -- talking to a beat is not music
    Strip clubs -- stay home and watch porn, it's cheaper and in the end you're still going to wind up using your hand
    Constant rebooting of superhero movies -- how many times do you need to see the origin story of Spiderman & the Fantastic 4?
    Gourmet fast food -- WTF?
    Selfies -- you're not that good looking, get over yourselves

    Never thought Friends was that funny although I've seen many of the episodes because my wife has of all of the shows on DVD.

    I also never got Monty Python show/movies even though a lot of friends thought they were hilarious.

    TED looked totally unfunny to me and that 6th sense told me not to waste my time. i watched several trailers/clips and nothing. Even my best friend told me I HAD to see it, but still I doubted. Then someone had it from Netflix or something so I thought I'd try it and got through about 10 minutes. Awful, but apparently everyone else loves it.

    Shrek is the other one.

    I don't understand not getting FB, Facebook is absolutely amazing if you ever had good friends and care enough to keep in touch with them. I reconnected with good friends from 25-30 years ago.

    Friends was a decent sitcom in the beginning if you were of "that age" at the time. I loved it and watched it religiously. Then the dead grandma/cat thing and then Monica was fucking Chandler every 5 seconds (yeah, right) and it ended up sucking. if I catch a quick minute of it these days it isn't particularly fun or funny, but in the '90s it was better than most.

    Some people are knee-jerk nazis if it isn't something THEY don't like. it's actually great for keeping in touch with family or friends AND it's also great for hooking up with and fucking old girlfriends and destroying your current relationship/life. Just like most things. it isn't just kitten memes and photos of your lunch (unless you are a douche). And if you ARE a douche, be assured everyone is quietly mocking you daily.
