The Top Ten

1 Deadlines

This resulted in me having to completely wing a thousand-word essay in two hours. It was probably the best thing I've ever written. - PetSounds

Sure, I can finish my research project tomorrow. Oh crap. It's due in an hour. - PositronWildhawk

Nice job, Positron. Wasn't sure whether to vote on the list items or the hilarious comments! - Billyv

2 Download Time

This one really bothers me, and affirmative, they are never precise. My iPod tells me an estimated time, but it's always a full minute (or more) longer than it promised! - RockFashionista

No problem, sir, your files will be available to you in 2 minutes. Sorry, I meant millennia. - PositronWildhawk

I sat there for 3 minutes and the whole time it said, "10 seconds left". - letdot52

3 Total Mass of the Content of One's Bag

I've put my back out because of this underestimate. - PositronWildhawk

4 Public Transport Times

At least on the planes, you have a screen. But whatever you do, don't go and see Time to Destination. - PositronWildhawk

Ridiculous. They never arrive at the stated time. - Britgirl

5 Hours of Sleep

I've gotten so good at knowing exactly how much sleep ill get if I went to sleep at any given time... Unfortunately, the only thing I know for sure is that it's never enough. - keycha1n

It's pretty hard to know when or how long you're going to sleep. Sometimes, I feel like it is just enough, while other times, it just seems as if it isn't.

Completely unpredictable. You don't know which hours, which days, which nights, are satisfactory. - PositronWildhawk

Everyone just guesses. Definitely unpredictable. - funnyuser

6 The Energy Density of the Vacuum Energy of the Universe

The most inaccurate measurement in scientific history. The quantity has been measured to be 120 orders of magnitude away from its calculated value, and this severely limits our feasible dark energy predictions, as the vacuum energy can't be computed directly. - PositronWildhawk

Large deviation in measurements. Calculated value shows many orders deviation from the measured value. Limits dark energy predictions. Surely. - divphygamer

7 Quality of a Movie Judging by the Trailer

This is why I like the YouTube series: Honest Trailers. - PositronWildhawk

8 Risk

This could be idiots who cross the busy road diagonally, or people who are reluctant to buy irradiation treated products. There's always a probability distribution with its arbitrary parameters, but in the philosophy of Laplace's demon, there is difficulty in predicting everything in the natural evolution of information. - PositronWildhawk

9 Costs and Profits

I see it all as a result of chance whether you become wealthy or broke. - PositronWildhawk

10 Popularity On TheTopTens

One the one hand, some of us made a huge impact. One the other hand, so many obscure users deserve more attention. - PositronWildhawk

I really have no idea where I stand. - PetSounds

I too have no idea. - Animefan12

11 "Back in Ten Minutes" Notices

Back in twenty. No, ninety. No, I just got the sack. - PositronWildhawk

From when does the ten minutes actully start? No one knows what time they left! - Britgirl

12 Weather

Well why don't you ask Mother Nature if you want a more 'precise' answer. - DislikeMyComment
