RE: What made you want to throw a brick at the TV today
A documentary about Phil Rudd from AC/DC, featuring this quote:

"He was fired from the band after a fierce argument with lead guitarist Malcolm Young"

Malcolm Young isn't the lead guitarist in AC/DC. He's the rhythm guitarist.

I'm not sure what they did. I'm guessing Genesis isn't either. That's probably why he asked.

Reminds me of the time I got annoyed of the Weather man on the local station when I was visiting relatives in Kansas ._.

A documentary about a Ukrainian serial killer. The criminologist said "He was sentenced to death, but he hasn't been executed because the European Union doesn't allow capital punishment. He'd better hope Ukraine never leaves the European Union".

It would be difficult for Ukraine to leave the EU, as it is not a member of said organisation.

Their $&@,;?& ads are insulting, offensive and even racist at times! Plus they keep shoving them down our throats literally everywhere in the US. Wouldn't YOU hate them to if they keep doing this no matter where you go in the US? I'm actually not the only person who hates them for their $&@!$?; ads either. There are literally Facebook groups with several people who hate these people just as much as me. Maybe even more.

I wasn't aware of any racist Geico ads. The only way I've ever felt they were offensive is that they, like a lot of ads out there, seem to imply that the people who buy their services are really stupid.

They did one that had blackface and quite a few with offensive stereotypical portrays of minorities.
