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.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
