Everyone's got their own favorite food.


Doesn't mean it's going to taste good to you. It's like when someone tells you they're favorite pizza place, spends the days before you go together hyping it up, and then when you arrive it ends up being just okay. That's awkward. Yet, these people talking about their favorite weird two food combinations it too intriguing to completely ignore.

Reddit user, u/CouchCorrespondent, wanted to know what culinary wonders they were missing out on when they asked:

What are two foods that actually taste great together......even though most people don't eat them that way?

Breakfast is the most wonderful meal of the day. As the wise Leslie Knope once said, "Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?" So mixing it up can feel blasphemous, but what if it's tasty?

Jam It On

"When I was growing up, it was standard procedure for us to put grape jelly on scrambled eggs. I did it when I went to college and everyone at the table stared at me. I still like it."

Sauces and dips are critical to enjoying some foods. Mess with it too much and you risk ruining the delicacy. So that's why it's reassuring to see these people offering up their new spins on dip combinations.

A Creative Spin On An Old Favorite

"Root beer float except with cherry Coke and chocolate ice cream. I was in middle school on a field trip, last in line at the cream shop, and ordered this after everyone else had done the standard root beer and vanilla. One of the cool girls who had never spoken my name before gave me this piercing look and asked if I would switch with her. I instinctively knew I would get zero benefit from this deal, so I said "Nope, ya gotta just remember it next time." That felt good."

Keep an open mind. Don't do this for every meal, sure, but always be ready to try something new.

Advancements in science happen every day in every way.

But often it feels like we are still so far behind.

How have we not cured so many diseases?

Shouldn't we know more about space?

What is Jello really made of?

So much to ponder and understand.

Maybe one day.

We all have a bucket list of what we'd like to see cured or invented before our last breaths.

Let's discuss...

Redditor yoda2060wanted to discuss all the science that needs to be devoured before the sand runs out of the hourglass. They asked:

"What scientific achievement you would like to see before you die?"

Fast fashion is terrible for the environment, one of the largest polluters of clean water globally because of its all too common use of cheap, toxic textile dyes.

It also places producers under more and more pressure to manufacture more and more clothes on masse–the people working in the factories that make this stuff are being paid a pittance, contributing to much of the wealth inequality in less developed nations.

Additionally, it's estimated that the textiles industry produces 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 per year and that just two percent of all fast fashion emissions can be reduced through recycling. Ouch. Time to change habits, right?

People shared their thoughts on this and other topics after Redditor urmomsucked asked the online community,

"What should people seriously stop buying?"

If you make too many funny faces, your face will stay that way permanently.

Watch too much tv and your eyes will fall out.

Break a mirror and it's seven years of bad luck.

These are among the many myths and superstitions we heard as children, more often than not from our parents and teachers as a way of scaring us into behaving.

But while there is not one ounce of truth to any of these tall tales, there are many who still believe them, and many more.

Redditor RedditPersonIf was curious to learn what superstitions people continue to believe are true, leading them to ask:

"What myths are obviously false, yet most people still believe they are true?"

Who hasn't looked at a scarf someone knitted for a loved one, a flawless homemade birthday cake, or an immaculately planted garden and thought, "I wish I could do that"?

But you'd never dare try to attempt it yourself, knowing that it's well beyond your personal skill set.

But is it?

Intimidating as they may seem, some skills might be deceptively easier than they appear to be, or might come more naturally to you than to many others.

Redditor halfmoon599 was curious to hear what skills people believed to be much easier than they seem, leading them to ask:

"What skill is actually easier to learn than what other people think?"
