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.

BoarMan21

"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.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
