'There's nothing worse than...'

I was reminded of a thread I started years ago because of the remarks about the Great Cull of 2009. I guess the original must have been a victim of that Purge.

At the time, I was working for the National Blood Service, and had offered to microwave the Doctor's tea, as his last cup had gone cold. "There's nothing worse than microwaved tea", he remarked.
Another day a colleague announced that there was nothing better than buying a new handbag.
In the original thread, we came to the conclusion that there would be nothing worse than living your life by your philosophy, only to die, and find that there was an afterlife, in which the Westboro Baptist Church, for example, were right, and you were now condemned to an eternity in hell. Conversely, there would be nothing better than living the life of a rational humanist, only to die and find there is a heaven: and that god is a nice chap who allows you in because you did your best to be kind and caring.

So, contributions please! I imagine Bondee's Yammering Netty nigh be a good source...

There's nothing worse than being asked for contributions and realizing that you have nothing whatsoever to contribute.

There's nothing better than superlatives

Similar in tone, someone who now only posts here occasionally put something on Facebook to the effect of "I have a rainbow set of fingernails. I couldn't be happier"

There is nothing worse than having a car outside your house that you can't use.

There is nothing better than finally getting tax, insurance etc in place so that you can!!!!

tetsabb: Yes, the original thread seems to no longer be there but here's a link to another version of it.

There's nothing worse than seeing the same thread come round again and again when you know you have nothing to contribute.

It occurs to me that really, one can post to a thread like this only once, otherwise your posts will contradict each other. I can think of nothing worse than that.

Other than being ritually disembowelled alive in the woods using a sharp stick whilst being forced to listen to the collected works of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons.

In that case there's nothing worse than this.

(P.S. I'm quite a fan - in fact I was looking for something to listen to tonight so thanks for the recommendation!)

I just knew there was something wrong about you, but I just couldn't put my finger on it until now.

There’s nothing worse than doing whatever it takes to keep yourself alive, even if it kills you.
