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.

People Break Down Which Things Were Common In The 1990s But Are Rare Today

Oh the 90's. What a decade.

Who knew we were in the time of revolution?!

So much happened, yet so much stayed the same.

And not decades later, so much has changed.

Who doesn't love to look back upon a decade and discuss the things that were a common part of life and are now basically obsolete?

You never know in real time.

People Divulge The First Thing They Think Of When They Hear The Word 'Texas'

Texas is HUGE!

Literally, it's massive. That might be why the tagline is about everything being big. Oh the metaphors of life.

Next to size is heat. Lord is it hot there.

Those are just a few of the regular Texas deets that often come to mind.

What else do others think of?

Insects play a vital role in Earth's ecosystem.

Without insects, some plants would die and some animals would starve creating a domino effect of global famine.

That being said, June Bugs can crawl back into the pits of Hell from whence they came.

I know I'm not alone in that opinion.

People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor PieinHorse asked the online community,

"What is very overrated?"
