No matter how old we get, we still find ourselves keeping up with the latest trends.

Binging the show everyone's talking about, downloading the newest app, and partaking in the latest social media craze, all in an effort to appear cool to our friends and colleagues.

Of course, not all of these trends are "cool" to us.

In fact, sometimes we grudgingly partake in these trends, no matter how idiotic they seem to us.

While others have no concerns about being cool, and won't even think about joining in with everyone else, choosing instead to gleefully look down on them.


A recent Redditor was curious to hear about all the popular fads which ignites an instant eye-roll in some people, leading them to ask:
"What's something extremely popular but you just can't give a f*ck about it?"

The best thing about opinions and personal taste is that they are unique to every individual.

No two people have to like the same thing, nor should we judge those who dislike something we like and vice-versa.

Even if it's hard to say it's unreasonable that not even two people should give Elon Musk or Ye any time of day.

Though again, that's just an opinion...

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

People Dispel Common 'Facts' That Are Total BS

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
