That everything about it sucks! Also that a majority of people in here are seriously mentally ill, as in they hold conversations with their chair and other inanimate objects or invisible people. They belong in mental hospitals, not prisons. You never know what is going to set one of them off or when it will happen so you always have to be on guard.
