    May I begin with HDCP2.2? This is a copy protection trick to prevent copying of UltraHD 4K material. Unfortunately it also means I cannot play genuine 4K BluRay discs on my genuine Samsung 4K monitor using either my genuine Samsung 4K BluRay disc player or the genuine LG 4K BluRay player in my PC. A curse on HDCP2.2.

      On a less technical point: Corned Beef tins. Even if the key works, the stuff doesn’t come out unless you use a tin opener.

      Edit. Too late!
      My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

      My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      Stuff that comes in sealed plastic packaging like this. Requiring a moderately dangerous hack round with a bread knife or a pair of scissors.

      Especially when the package contains scissors. Is someone having a laugh ?

      I want to meet the absolute TOOL of a patent holder in a dark alley with a sharp instrument, preferably not in one of their packages.

      Can we form a queue? I'll bring my cosh, the one with the hobnails.

      Tough to find things which aren't just the result of cost cutting or badly thought out design..... But my vote goes to.call centre systems.

      They're made to infuriate you into hanging up rather than getting you to the person you need to speak to.

      Car seats... I have never come across a car seat where you can drop something down the side of one and you can effortlessly retrieve it.

      Every time, I seem to find myself trying to poke the item to the front of the seat with a pen, only for it to drop to an even harder to retrive point in the mechanism.
