Here's a hill I will die on: Sandwiches should have structural integrity! It's really that simple: It annoys me when I'm eating a sandwich (or a burger, for that matter) that falls apart after a bite or two. Not that I won't eat it... (yay, food!) but then it's not a sandwich anymore, is it? An enormous burger is a joy to look at and it tastes great... but wow, can it suck to eat.

After Redditor criteraz asked the online community, "What food tastes great, but is a pain in the ass to eat?" people shared their own opinions.


"If I were on an island..."

I love oranges but I literally can't be bothered to peel the skins.

If I were on an island with just oranges I might die pretty early.

"That stuff..."

Anything with HOT melted cheese. That stuff can BURN the roof of your mouth like crazy!

"Tasty if done right..."

Ribs.

Tasty if done right but not enough food on the bone to be worth the mess and effort.

"Basically..."

Basically any fresh fish. It's almost guaranteed the whole skeleton is still in there because it was filleted by an inexperienced store worker rather than an experienced fisherman.

I live right on Lake Erie, our perch is incredible, and you definitely pay if you want it prepared right.

"I appreciate..."

Fish with the bones still in.

Salmon and gindara (grilled Japanese sea bass) are some of my favorite fish dishes but they have needle-like bones as long as my thumb.

I appreciate a good fillet, all flavor no hassle.

"The humble..."

The humble meat pie. Bastards tend to do this diarrhea like explosion out the back the moment you bite into them, frequently transferring the scolding contents to your groin.

"Pumpkin seeds..."

Pumpkin seeds are a huge pain to remove from the wheels compared to sunflower seeds, however I find them to not be as literally woody. I just eat the entire thing.

"They always end up..."

Prawns. Lobster. Crab. Oh and steak sandwiches. They always end up deconstructed after the first couple of bites

"The fish itself..."

Branzino. The fish itself tastes absolutely amazing, but you have to be really careful so you don't swallow any small bones by mistake.

"Gives me shivers..."

Anything with bones. I hate picking meat of bones and cartilage. Gives me shivers down the spine.

"Game changer"

Pistachios

Took me ages of thinking " someone must have invented a tool to help open these", then it smacked me in the back of the head: a used half shell pries even the hardest shells apart. Game changer.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
