Some things are acquired tastes, and it can take a long time to cultivate a love for them. Alcohol, spicy foods, veggies, school; all of these and more can take some getting used to but most folks start to like them once they give them a try.


Reddit user u/theorphancameleon asked:

"What did you dislike at first but ended up really liking?"

10.

A lot of vegetables. My mother is not the greatest cook and it took years to realize veggies were delicious when seasoned and cooked properly.

Running and weightlifting, I don't think anyone loves that from the get go.

Cooking. I used to think of it as such a chore until I figured out there was no law stating I had to follow a recipe EXACTLY. I learned that I could play around with different flavours and textures and it became much more enjoyable. I'm not a pro by any means but I love to get into the kitchen and cook up a good meal now.

Note: this does NOT work with baking. Do not experiment with baking.

7.

Salad. Growing up, salad consisted of giant chunks of bitter iceberg lettuce, a couple pieces of tasteless tomato, and many large chunks of red onion. My family would then smother that in ranch dressing. I hated salad for years and hated ranch for years.

My salads now have a dark baby green mix (with spinach and all that stuff), cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, baby corn, radish, broccoli, cubed cheese and a nice vinegar and oil based dressing.

Going to the gym in the morning before work. Waking up an hour and a half earlier than normal, doing cardio again. Would have said you were crazy if you told me I'd be doing it a few years ago.

If you could bottle the feeling I have in the morning after going to the gym you'd be a billionaire. My evenings are more open, I dont have to deal with traffic, I dont have to worry about a piece of equipment I want to use being tied up. Plus it forces me to have a healthy sleep schedule. Major game changer.

Metal music

-Blueee20

Dude, once you get it, you fucking GET IT. And you start to notice the intricacies if the instruments, and then dive into the technicalities of the vocals and it's just like.

Imagine Mozart, but turned up to 11.
Metal.

You know how a lot of people like superheroes as kids? I hated them. I thought that most of their costumes looked stupid and was too immature to understand why everyone was beating each other up.

But starting at age 14, I actually ended up being a big fan of Marvel for a while. I don't really keep up with their movies anymore but I can say with certainty that I still like most of the ones that I have seen.

3.

Seltzer, I used to think it tasted like rotten soda and now I think soda tastes like rotten seltzer

-katymae123

Seltzer is still soda, it's just anger flavored and I don't need that kind of negativity in my life.

Trailer park boys. Took about 2 seasons to get properly into it but now Sunnyvale feels like my 2nd home.

Sour patch kids, the first few time I tried them I couldn't stand how sour they were. Got some for Easter a few years later and ended up loving them, now I eat them all the time.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"
