Re: Why?

Why does current cinematic technique frequently involve flashing scenes for less than 1/2 second each?

I find this extremely disturbing and can't watch TV or movies. (By 'disturbing', I mean that it physically affects me - my breathing increases; I get anxious; I fell like a predator is stalking me - can't really explain it.)

Anyone else find this annoying? Or is it just me?

Newsreaders and journalists who say

"centre around"

instead of

"centre on"

People who when asked "did you enjoy your weekend/trip/holiday/[insert here] say "No - Yes".

Why do people say both yes and no in the same sentence to the same question/point? Drives me nuts.
