Things you are supposed to like but just don't. A thread.

Recommended Posts

Fries. Fries are just not that good. Even good fries are just okay in my opinion.

Belgian beer. I'm German, so there is a bit of bias going on, but if you drink beer from a sherry glass-looking vessel, I will assume something is wrong with you.

$15/bottle super-artisan craft beer with 1000% ABV. Same as above. What's wrong with you?

LGBTQ+ stuff (the politics part). To be clear, I want everybody to live their happiest life as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. I'm just done with the "celebrating" part. I don't want to celebrate diversity six times a day. And I certainly don't need a flag for every aspect of human identity.

Pickup trucks built after the mid 90s. Don't want one, don't need one. Like the vast majority of Americans. Trucks are amazing for doing truck things, but on the rare occasion, I need a truck, I can rent some 6-cylinder GMC awfulness from U-Haul, which does truck things just fine.

Nevermind. I retract my previous post.

Lot of conflicting emotions reading this post.

Beer. Well, the taste of beer. I know its an "acquired" tasted, but I don't have the patience to acquire the taste of something like that.

*Waits to be kicked from the Wyo fandom*

All beer?? Or just shit beer like bud light?

You really oughta give it another shot someday, with closed captions if need be. Bridges’ drunkard slur is a bit too accurate

about one or two times a month, MY WIFE and I like to watch a bad but entertaining movie after the girls go to bed. something like... gods of egypt, or geostorm, or a dumb comedy.

we tried to watch 7th son. looked perfect. decent cast. bad fantasy premise. i figured it would be like vin diesels the last witchunter. dumb but fun.

it sucked. but the reason why i mention it is that jeff bridges is in it and insists on doing a .... wizards mumble. the whole movie. takes you out of the film and is borderline incomprehensible.

i think the dude just likes to mumble

where i hunt some years it's white tails that eat corn and sugar beats, some years it's mulies that....

don't. 

wild swing from "good eating" to my wife saying "never bring something like this into my kitchen ever again"

Do you process your own game? If so, as your cutting the big muscle groups off, put the in tubs of saltwater and let them soak for a day or two. We do this with all of our Mule Deer and most of the White Tails. It takes out almost all of strong game taste.

Yeah I butcher all of the game myself. Typically I let them age at +- 34-45 degrees for a week or two. I will say that most of the time when I get a mule deer it's unseasonably warm - 60s and 70s in october. Probably not a coincidence now that I think about it considering the area has both mulies and white tails. Any way it is a double whammy, the white tails in the area eat sugar beets, corn, and beans while the mulies eat sage brush and greasewood and then also the white tails get taken at a much cooler temperature, are allowed to age instead of be put on ice right away.

hmm. you gave me something new to think about. :cheers:

UFC or Boxing, basically any fight game/fighting just doesn't do it for me. I feel like the 90's might've ruined me with all the pre-match hype of the boxing and Tyson ending it within minutes or seconds multiple times. 

Eating a cheese burger without a slice of tomato is disgusting guys, get it together.

I was a huge boxing fan for decades.  It was America's preeminent individual sport in the prior century.  I became an MMA fan mostly because of Fedor in the Pride era.  I still appreciate high level contests MMA, but the whole standard fare of marketing testosterone-fueled grudges, fake or real, turns me off.  Boxing, I really need more than a Canelo-GGG3 to get excited.

Crawford-Spence is just sitting there to take my money. The morons just won’t do it. Crooks and con men are supposed to be smarter than this.

He did finally win an Oscar for playing a drunk southerner. Maybe he’s typecasting himself. Not everybody can be Daniel Day Lewis.

Guns, Tattoos, Motorcycles, Fantasy Football  

Aren't all American males supposed to be fascinated with all of these things and the image they portray to all?

I'm over fantasy football. It's stopped being fun when they would literally suggest who you should draft during the draft. The 10,000 preseason publications make it dumb and take the research aspect out of it.

 

I'm with you on tattoos. Trashy. Guns and motorcycles are cool as +++++, though.

Totally, on all this. Although I think street bikes are death on a stick, but I feel a little freer every time I see people willing to do 120 on the freeway on a 120-degree day in shorts and a tank top.
