Hopefully they can't explain it at all. That is the point of the thread.
it's not "unexplainable pet peeves". something can be irrational and still explainable, it's just that other people would find the explanation irrational

Okay, but if JJD can't explain it at all, then it's still irrational as well.

I think that's the best case scenario.

I agree, the windshield wiper one is top tier.
I'll x3 this one. Which leads me to wonder...will we still be able to call it a "pet peeve" if everyone but djk universally agrees on it?

Clarification:

1. On the topic of "Does it fit the irrational pet peeve thread?", JJD's windshield wiper example is top tier. This is what I was saying.

2. On the topic of "Do I share the same pet peeve of this windshield wiper thing?" I am lukewarm like a 6 or 7 out of 10. I have never done it and don't imagine I will ever even try it once. When I see it on other cars it hits me with a tinge of silent judgement. "Why aren't you putting your wipers up like you're supposed to?" Because it's completely unnecessary, that's why.

It seems like I was mainly talking about point #1 while Hunter is talking mainly about point #2.

I've never seen a car do that.

I also don't pay attention, and don't live where it snows much.

What's the point of the wiper thing? And why does it annoy you?

In my eyes, putting the wipers in that position is totally irrational.
With enough snow, you still have to clean the snow off your car and defrost your windshield. I guess ive never tried myself, but you arent really doing anything helpful for yourself as far as I can tell.

Re: windshield wipers... They point straight up to prevent freezing to the window. Aesthetically, it is an eyesore, but there are reasons that aren't insane.

I walk to work most of the time and sometimes go days without driving. After a lot of freezing and thawing with the weather here, my wipers are sometimes encased in ice, and chipping it off in a timely manner can really mess with the rubber. I should honestly start putting them up!

i never tried to claim it wasn't still irrational. it can be both irrational and unexplainable, but just because it's irrational does't mean it's unexplainable.

you're keeping a bunch of ice from forming onto the blades, which can be a lot harder to melt/chip off

December 26th being a top 5 shopping day of the year. Could you at least pretend Christmas is about more than discount electronics?

Jonah Hill doing jiu-jitsu. Hard to imagine that anyone could successfully lock in a triangle choke since he has been giant head.

Don't you just get the whole week off then?

Sees much better than being on a Saturday, for example, or Sunday.
