People's tastes are anything but universal, but there are some things that are distinctly more popular than others.

It can get pretty lonely when you're the only person you know who can't stand the current popular thing.


Reddit user u/Lil Crackerjack asked:

"What is something you hate that everyone loves?"


20.

Loud cars and motorcycles. Everybody seems to like them. Even non-enthusiasts but I absolutely despise them.

Sweet tea is very popular where I live, I think it's foul. Also IPA style beer.

Ever since I can remember I have always hated gum. I hate everything about it especially when people chew with their mouths open and you can see it swirling around i am instantly repulsed.

17.

Although it's a huge part of my generation I really hate U2. Always have and always will. Something about their music, Bono, and The Edge just drive me crazy.

Raymond

Do you like Chris though?

-15jackets

15. 

Grease. I hate the story, I hate the characters, I hate the music, and I absolutely hate the message. I never saw the big deal as a kid, and the older I get, the more I hate it.

-InRustWeTrust

14.

Probably too late for a UK entry: Love Island.

Why, just why would anyone care?

-wirral_guy

13.

"Unity candles at weddings. The thing you are symbolizing is literally the thing you are doing.

-tolofuklamn

12.

Asmr. The tingles are really uncomfortable for me and I just cant deal with it. I also cant deal with my neck being touched so that might have something to do with it I dunno.

11.

Posing for pictures by myself

-tooth-doc

What do i do with my hands?

How big should I smile?

Should I wear a leotard? What even is a leotard?

It's all Too much.

10.

Crime procedurals.

Every single show is the same. All of them.

Your Cast:

The Leader who knows it all

The quirky lab tech

The tough cop who the leader forms a romantic connection with.

The goes against the rules renegade tech

The Newbie

-EverybodysBa

9.

The Bachelor/Bachelorette. What is the appeal of watching a bunch of the opposite sex basically lying, cheating, and stealing for a random stranger? I don't get it.

-FuelFan98

8.

Gender reveal parties.

-pho3k

They're getting way too out of hand.

Next they're literally going to blow up buildings just to uncover the coloured wall coinciding with the gender of the baby or something like that.

-DeviousMelons

7.

Celebrity obsession and worship. It bothers me.

-BellaDonnaBerry

6.

Children, I guess. I don't hate them but my disinterest in my extended family member's kids borders on apathy. There are kids in my family I've never met and I'm ok with it.

I met one of the newest ones this weekend while I was a little tipsy and my aunt got mad when I said, "there's another one?"

-butisitok

5.

Tea even though I'm British (English).

Hate iced tea, coffee, mocha, lattes, cappuccinos, Frappuccino's, anything like that.

-RueDistrict11

4.

Avocado.

I know everyone loves guacamole, but I just hate it.

-Irving180

3.

Summer and it being sunny and hot

-tigger1993

2.

Soda. Any carbonation tastes like it's burning my tongue. I'd rather go thirsty for hours than drink one soda. My kids are the same way.

-TechyDad

1.

Wine. I am apparently the only suburban mom who doesn't drink wine, and it makes other suburban moms incredibly uncomfortable.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
