That's INTP wisdom for you right there. Secondhand bookshops are great places to spend an afternoon. The (INTP) bf and I go there at least once a week and I have done so for years. Careful though - that's how you end up with a collection of over 1.500 and a cluttered apartment!
I used to love visiting them just to browse during my uni days and she reintroduced them to me. Many a time have we both taken off work for a couple of hours in the middle of the day to visit a hole in the wall shop in some alley somewhere. It's always good fun. She does tend to get carried away though. She once got 30+ books at a go. lol
I remember as kid wondering whether there was anyone who wanted Tom to win...
I suppose I have finally found him...
Dewey was annoying.
Seriously!? Who hates Scrappy?!?
Always wanted Tom to kill Jerry (especially in one of those episodes where they are friends...that would be an awesome twist to have Tom suddenly bite Jerry's head off in one of those episodes. However I was always disturbed about Spike (the dog) killing or beating up Tom. As to the animosity toward Jerry, the reason is self evident (cant believe you are not aware most people hate Jerry but simply society frowns on such admissions). Also wanted the Road Runner to get snuffed by Wild E.
Scrappy is the epitome of the cancer which is known to TV shows about to jump the shark as "New Kid on the Block". Die Scrappy, Die! (Kill the cousin Scoobie Dumb while we are at it)
I agree Dewey is creepy but seems to have a purpose in the overall chemistry of the cast.

5. Richard Dreyfuss "Mr. Holland's Opus" – glorified midlife crisis
Haha! Yeah, I remember watching that thinking "damn, they make so much movie over so little..." I'm guessing either the book (was it based on a book?) was awesome or some director and movie execs going through similar mid life crises were "deeply moved". So many movies that get greenlit reflect the fantasies and fears of the people writing, directing, and bankrolling them, not reality. That's why you often see hot, younger women fawning over truly unimpressive older men in movies. *cough cough* Woody Allen *cough cough* Oh damn, he did get Soon Yi though. :ack:
7. Carrie Bradshaw – extremely unlikable and self-centered to the point of idiocy
But, Domino, she's like Whitney Houston - 'every woman'. She really does embody something that many women (maybe women in their mid 30s and up?) identify with and admire. Maybe it's her wardrobe. The stylist for that show was a much older, hip non-normative lady.
8. Neil Caffrey “White Collar” – smug little bastard, a peacock in borrowed feathers. I want to knock that Sinatra hat off his head.
Heehee! I don't watch that show but I know what you mean. He is definitely a popular trope, the rakish bad boy who's not *really* bad but bad enough to be sexy. Or something.
9. Ender “Ender’s Game” – he’s a personality-bereft blob. A BLOB. Not a human. I hated him and the book.
Really? Interesting. You make millions of fan boys cry.
