People Explain Which Obscure Opinion They're Always Willing To Fight About

Sometimes I wonder if I'd win a political campaign by arguing in favor of a law that ensures the structural integrity of sandwiches. Sandwiches should have structural integrity! That's something we can all agree on, right? Right? It's not a sandwich if it's overflowing with ingredients and falling apart in my hands! Ingredients need to be in proportion! (Not that this has destroyed my sandwich-eating experiences, but when a sandwich falls apart before you can even take a bite out of it, it really makes you question things.)

People told us what is on their minds after Redditor Funkt4tstic asked the online community,

"What's the most obscure opinion hill you're willing to die on?"

"I've said it before..."

"I've said it before and I'll say it again: we need better standardization of canned food can sizes. Also, the cans should all nest when stacked."

"It is not..."

"Classic Rock is a sub-genre of rock created between the mid-1960s through the early-to-mid-1980s; it is not a radio format for aging rock songs."

I can support this.

Just because Nirvana and Soundgarden are "old" now doesn't make them classic rock––they're grunge!

"When you are at a picnic..."

"When you are at a picnic and you go through the food line and the napkins and utensils are at the beginning.

That s*** belongs at the end. I don't know what utensils I need, I don't know what food I'm having. It's a waste of utensils. And I don't want to hang on to extra s*** while I'm filling my plate."

I never knew how much I agreed with this until now.

"Whether it is a tree canopy..."

"Paddocks with livestock in them should all have some form of shelter. Whether it is a tree canopy or structure big enough to fit the livestock in the paddock underneath, to protect them from rain and sun."

"The album..."

"The album for a live musical is not a soundtrack - it's a cast recording."

Don't ever say "soundtrack" around musical theater people. They will END you.

"I will not work for a company..."

"I will not work for a company that doesn't post salary range in the job description or discuss salary in the first interview. You have my resume which is what I bring to the table. I deserve to know what you are offering upfront."

"It's either..."

"Frozen Hot Chocolate is not a thing. It's either hot chocolate or frozen chocolate. It can't be frozen and hot."

paulsgirl10

"There is a conspiracy..."

"There is a conspiracy against me by a shadowy cabal to drive me insane by always making sure the screwdriver I find is never the kind I need at that moment."

erik316wtn

This might be true.

And who's to say I'm not a part of it?

"Even worse..."

"Most screen actors shouldn't be voice actors. Most of the time they suck at it and they're only there because they're a famous name and because the film industry takes animation less seriously. Even worse if it's a non-acting celebrity providing the voice work."

alkalineorion

"DNA testing..."

"DNA testing like ancestry.com is weird and if anyone's gonna test my DNA and add it to a database they should pay ME. Not the other way around."

Face it.

We all have that topic we have strong opinions on, and sometimes, other people's disregard can drive us crazy. It turns out that that topic can be rather innocuous, relatively speaking.

What's that one topic for you? Feel free to tell us all about it in the comments section below!

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

When we first meet someone–whether through mutual friends, at school, or in a new work setting–we generally feel people out to determine if they're worth getting to know.

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
