Your unpopular opinions..

This did the rounds on FB a few weeks back, not sure if we've had it before but what 10 things that are, or seem to be universally loved, could you easily live without?

Mine are:

  • Dogs
  • ABBA
  • Radio DJs
  • Television
  • Rugby/Cricket/F1 - Basically any sport that isn't football but mainly these three
  • Holidays (dear god don't tell my wife this one)
  • Current British Rap Music
  • Twitter
  • Sliders
  • Garden trampolines


Feel free to challenge me on any of these. My hatred makes me stronger.

So what's your shame list then?

Dogs? Are you a cat person or you just don't like dogs?

Lots of people that are fond of dogs don't have one of their own. So they can do without them in the sense of not having a pet at home. It doesn't mean you would be quite happy if dogs didn't exist.

I agree with you on ABBA (they were shit The first time around). Also thee not football thing. What the fuck is a slider?

My list (for today).

  • moderates/centrists - (either selfish or naive people, who eventually enable extreme right wing or even fascism ).


  • Nirvana - (overrated pub rock band).


  • Blogs


  • Most social media


  • political bipartisanship - (no such thing. Right wingers are simply wrong. Socialism is right).


  • Cellos - Horrible boring sound. Nothing good about it.


  • Cars - just a box with wheels.


  • Talking about drugs - boring.


  • Lying on the beach.


  • That Aussie comedian that plays piano.

Dogs? Are you a cat person or you just don't like dogs?

I am a cat person but I have a list of the specific behaviours of dogs that irk me. Also I live in a dog family*. Think I'm getting a dog soon as well.

* A family that has a lot of dogs, not a family made of dogs. Hopefully obvs.



What the fuck is a slider?

These horrors: http://tiny.cc/m66zoz

Looking at some of yours I've realised 10 items barely scratches the surface. Think I could easily reach 100.

TRaney - 13 May 2020 10:16:00 (#14 of 883)

When I were a lad a slider was a scoop of ice cream between two wafers.

Not the Serbian slipper.

TheExcession - 13 May 2020 10:16:54 (#15 of 883)

You young whipper snappers with your video games and hip-hopping music! (shakes stick angrily)

yumyum - 13 May 2020 10:19:26 (#16 of 883)

Comedy crime dramas (e.g. Death in Paradise, Montalbano, Rosemary and Thyme, Midsomer Murders)

Oh, yes. All those obvious plots and hammy dialogue.

Star wars universe

Agreed

Rap music past and present

Absolutely

I hate the words "safe haven". A haven is always safe - well, not a tax one.

Agaliarept - 13 May 2020 10:19:59 (#17 of 883)

When I were a lad a slider was a scoop of ice cream between two wafers.

It's also a small hamburger I think.

TRaney - 13 May 2020 10:24:19 (#18 of 883)
