Do you find it irritating when people "Like" sad statuses on Facebook? Example: "Heading to the hospital. Grandma might not wake up from her coma."

Does your opinion change based on whether the person simply "Likes" the status vs. "Liking" and leaving a comment?

Is it more offensive to "Like" or reply with "OMG"?

ETA: I realize that people aren't actually "Liking" the event, but I find it irritating because a mere "Like" seems like the laziest possible thing a person can do, as if the person can't be bothered to actually show a true sign of support.

Further to my post about meeting people the other day, I've found a meetup group having drinks tonight. I can see when and where it is, but my membership to the group has been pending since Wednesday, so I can't see any comments about it.
Would it be super bad form to just turn up?
Eta: there's also only 2 people attending at the moment-I guess I'm worried they won't be there/will have made arrangements I can't see

"I just want somebody there who loves me..."

If you did ever, or do still perform, did/do you prefer to have one or more people in the audience who are close to you and rooting for you, or do/did you rather just know you're performing to a group of strangers? I mean anything where the result depended on your performance: Music festivals, dance competitions, spelling bees, debate competitions, sports events, etc.

I used to do a couple of music festivals when I was a kid, and I always felt more confident and less nervous if my mum wasn't in the audience.

DK/DC: What's the most annoying pest that comes into your home? What's the most dangerous?

Most annoying for me are craneflies. There seem to be about one million of them in my neighbourhood, all of them eager for the chance to pop into my kitchen, fly directly into my glasses (or my cooking), then die. Most dangerous: We don't really have any dangerous pests. I suppose large spiders would win as they cause me to panic and flail, thus risking my bones.
