    Most downloads is hardly an accurate measure of success though is it.

    Eminem for example has sold something like 0.25B plus has won an Oscar in the process.

    I like some of his music, but i am old, and itís hardly cutting edge.

    Itís not a competition, they can both be famous. Being famous was being questioned, not success.

    Why every unfit and overweight Englishman knows how to take a perfect penalty, but professional footballers don't.

    Why so many people who drink energy drinks such as Redbull, haven't the energy to carry the empty tin to a dustbin.

    They're extremely important in certain lines of work and whilst they and their use is invisible to most, their use keeps us all safe/r every day.

    People who stop when traffic lights are red (and junctions and roundabouts sometimes) and clearly totally forget that the lights will change colour and they can then continue their journey. Itís almost like they think theyíll be there for half an hour so theyíll get a flask of tea out and a sandwich.

    I'm not sure but I think it's because they've come to watch a football match and not get their teeth kicked in. Maybe you should attend a couple of matches and put them right?

    What I can't understand is why he hasn't sued himself for copyright infringement because all his songs are the same.

    I listen to a lot of John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Ben Howard etc so I'm a fan. Quite like inoffensive easy listening stuff at times. Not John's newer stuff though, bit much for me.

    I'm pretty sure you're not the target market. I think he's okay and I'm not the target market either. Let's face it, he's a gingerboy and not exactly Adonis. All of his songs are pretty generic but he does exactly what he needs to do to make money..
    I'd say he's very talented.

    Just what I was thinking. Not keen on paying to get my head kicked in. I am sure if I was taking a pasting someone would similarly step in.

    People who comment on watch review sites like monochrome etc....

    40mm watch "If only it were 39mm I would be all over it" "If only it were 41mm I would be all over it"

    Time only 3 hand watch with 30m WR "If only it were a dive watch with a WR of 1000m" "If only it were a chronograph"

    Its like the internet equivalent of tyre kicking

    People who use self service checkouts placing all of their scanned items to one side as they go, then pay for it all, and only then think it's a good idea to place all those items into a bag.

    Cyclists who dress up in lycra, to go out in groups and slow down traffic by taking up as much of the road as possible. There's obviously a points system involved for the amount of cars you hold up but I haven't worked out how they tally it up yet. I'm also guessing they ride too fast for some in the group because if you're in front of them and slow them down a bit they always wave and shout their appreciation.

    Ha ha ha. I'm sure theres a law against wearing shoes without socks. Probably in the 'flip flops' part of criminal law.

    Also people who stand in line for groceries then when they are all through they are totally amazed they need to pay and spend more time looking for their purse.

    Get the purse out or at least found while waiting in line surely.

    How people can sit on the tube for 30 minutes, stand on the escalator for 5, walk to the barrier and only then realise they need to get their Oyster card / ticket out of the bottom of their hand bag, (yes it’s invariably woman that do this) you needed the Oyster card to get on the tube 30 mins ago, you do the journey every day and yet it’s still a surprise. (Ok this is pre lock down one but nothing will have a changed)

    I do believe that self-service checkouts vastly overestimate the intelligence of the average shopper!

    When at a checkout, said purse is generally concealed in a shoulder bag behind several zips. For additional security the shoulder bag needs to be firmly clasped to the side in order to prevent a) theft or b) it falling off the shoulder. This turns the check out process into a laborious, inefficient one-handed process. Heaven forbid that the bag should leave their person and be put down amongst their shopping while performing said task.
