Likes and dislikes are a lot of what goes into forming relationships with others. Foods and drink, music, and stories can have major cultural significance.

Life can be complicated when, try as you might, you just can't get yourself to like eating the local delicacy in your hometown.

Reddit user u/Ardad13 asked:

"What is something you really don't like, but wished you did?"


Pineapples because I'm from Hawaii and they look so damn good and refreshing but every time I go back in like "maybe I do actually like pineapples and I'm just trying to be different" I realize once again that no I don't like pineapples at all.



Getting out.

My gf is the kind of person who aways says "yes" when her family is planning a trip or a party over the weekend.

Over the course of our relationship i tried to enjoy these sudden appointments, but they still stress the crap out of me.



Dancing. I totally HATE it. When I go to a wedding, I always dance with my wife and pretend I'm having fun because I know she really loves it, but I'm dying inside. I wish I didn't feel that way, but I do.


... and it's super hard to explain because it's so incredibly obvious that it brings (many) folks so much joy.

Every time I've tried to describe it, everyone assumes that I enjoy it - like they do - but I'm too embarrassed or something. No, I literally just don't enjoy it. It's not that embarrassment is greater than enjoyment, it's that there's no enjoyment!

That being said, I love being around people dancing. Such a good vibe. I just don't get into it myself.



Coffee and Tea. They have their own cultures that I feel like I'm missing out on and will never understand.



Running. I'm even fairly decent at it and try to run at least 30 mpw, but I hate every second of it. I've never experienced the runners high that seemingly everyone else gets.



Lobster. I live on the coast of Maine. I can go down to the boats and buy it, fresh, from people I know for a couple bucks a pound.

And I hate lobster.



Adventurous first dates.

I really wish I was that guy that would enjoy going karaoke or kayaking or salsa dancing with a relative stranger but man I just don't have it in me.

I'm an anxious person, these things would cause me to feel anxious if I did them in the company of my closest friends (although I'd feel a lot more at ease), I would feel far too anxious to do it with someone who is (a) more or less a stranger and (b) someone I actively want to impress.

I'm a dinner or drinks kind of guy, but I think in 2019 that makes you a little boring.


I would never set up a first date for anything more than drinks/coffee. If things click, it's not that hard to get up and go somewhere else. And if it doesn't? Well, have that drink and part ways.



Watching Sports. Seems like a lot of people I know enjoy watching and discussing sports, players, etc and socialize through it. As for me I kinda just have to sit quietly until the topic changes.



Beer. I live in a town that has as many breweries as people. It should be like a smorgasbord, but I don't like it. It's like being vegan in Wisconsin.



Golf. I work in the legal field. Golf is important and I have zero interest in it.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
