Some people think onions are the devil's lettuce.

Others think ketchup should never be used on anything. (Ditto for haters of steak sauce and other condiments.)

Still others believe seafood is revolting.

We all have our preferences, and some people let it all out after Redditor Mansierge asked: "What food do you swear people only pretend to like?"


"...it smelled like..."

Chitterlings. My mom-in-law made some at my house, and it smelled like a grown man crapped all over my home and walls.

"It has a smell like ammonia..."

Kæstur hákarl: an Icelandic dish made by taking a piece of shark meat, and burying it underground to ferment it for up to 12 weeks. It has a smell of ammonia (read: urine) and the consistency of cream cheese. I highly doubt that anyone likes this, but it has to be done because fresh shark meat is poisonous and fermenting it is the only way of getting rid of the toxins.

"Does eating a creature..."

Live octopus. Does eating a creature that's actively trying to crawl out of your mouth as you eat it really taste so good that it's worth the trouble AND choking hazard?

"A Japanese dish..."

Natto, a Japanese dish of fermented soybeans. With a taste, texture AND smell that makes you wish human senses did not exist.

"I don't understand..."

Balut.

I don't understand how cracking open an eggshell to eat a half formed duck embryo is appealing to ANYONE.

"Like, why?"

Edible gold. Like, why?

"Looks disgusting..."

Jellied eels

Looks disgusting, probably tastes bad too. Almost every video on YouTube with someone eating jellied eels shows them squinting while they chew on it.

"I grew up in India..."

I grew up in India, and my grandfather owned a farm and the village the farm was in. So we got a steady supply of delicious milk straight from the cow. So when I grew up and stayed in London for a year, i was absolutely disgusted at the sight and taste of 2% milk. Disgusting paint water.

"You see people..."

Giphy

Fondant on those pretty cakes. You see people on those cake tv shows chowing down on the disgusting play dough with smiles on their faces.

"I don't understand..."

I don't understand how people actually enjoy slimy okra. I've given it many chances and maybe there's yummy okra out there but I've yet to discover it.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
