    If I remember correctly, it was either only 1-10% of people actually react if they hear a car alarm going off at night.

    Everybody who answered things like "Egg timer appearing on computer screen", "Computer crashing" and "Skipping CD" are fucking retarded. None of those are inventions, the second two are annoying but usually your own bloody fault and the first means it's sodding loading and they should get off Windows 98.
    Barely any of those are irritating. Car alarms are there for a reason and only go off wrongly if your car is from the 90s and rocks in the wind. Ball Mice? Nothing is wrong with ball mice unless you're trying to use them under the oven.

    Oh no, Sat Navs are ever so bad! These people are stupid, without half of these things you'd wish you had them back. Printers for fuck's sake. PRINTERS.

    ''And computers crashing, the dreaded Windows 'bong' sound and temperamental printers proves how much of a blight PCs are on our lives."

    I believe the sole purpose of a car alarm is to annoy neighbors so much, that they'll beat the piss out of the thief for you.

    I have never seen anyone do anything when someone's car alarm goes off.

    The Police don't give a fuck and I don't give a fuck.

    They've outlived their purpose anyway. It used to be when an alarm would go off people would actually check to see whats up. Now its just everyone rolling their eyes and going "lol who da fgt who cant get in his car"

    what a shitty poll, the entire point of it getting your attention is because your car is being jacked, you can't complain about that waking you up when your car just got stolen but you didn't want to get out of bed to do anything about it

    All car alarms are quite similar, and I don't think many people bother to test them so if you hear a car alarm you think "Oh, someone is having a shit day" when in fact it could actually be yours.
