    I am not a fan of musicals either. They make me cringe as well. The only ones that I can tolerate are Grease and The Sound of Music. Even then, I have to be in a certain mood to watch those. As a former teacher used to say, in reference to musicals, "It's just not natural for people to randomly burst into song!" :smile:

    No, I agree with you. Pepsi is sweeter and lacks flavour compared to Coke, like it’s been watered down. I prefer Coke, but very rarely drink either.

    Ooh! useless science I did finally has a purpose!

    I helped run a biochemistry study on the coke/pepsi thing, and we found that the reason it tastes different to some and the same to others depends a lot on the quality of a person's diet when they were younger and their taste buds were forming. People who reported eating a lot of sugary or salty stuff as kids were usually the ones who said it tastes the same, because their taste buds cannot differentiate between types of sugar/salt due to getting used to how all sugar's/salts tasted as a kid. People who ate super healthy and naturally as a kid (myself included) can taste the difference clearly, because Pepsi uses a lot more sugar than coke including different varieties of it, and because their taste buds aren't as used to sugar it can pick up on different types/amounts of the sugar in things, creating a different taste.

    Glad the $400,000 in grant money was well spent to answer a question on the internet! :joy:

    This is awesome! I didn't know this. Science to the rescue!

    ...It also now adds to my ever growing attempts to change my diet.

    That's really interesting. It explains why Pepsi always used to taste shockingly sweet to me, and I would just choose Diet Coke.

    Though I suppose Diet Coke isn't much better in terms of sugar-replacement additives. :sweat_smile:

    Ditto, so wat do people do when you tell them that?
    Can´t stand the smell either. :confounded:
    Yeah, verry much. And it apparently keeps insect parasitism away from your body.

    Agree.
    Yes and then some people wo dont like it watch it just to talk about it, like what the heck???

    It's either a thought I keep to myself or have discussed with a few people when the topic of celebrities comes up. They don't react. They just leave it that this is my opinion. No one I know really raves about them.

    Barbecues are overrated. I don’t understand why so many people rush out to get BBQ food and charcoal when the weather is warm. The food doesn’t even taste that nice.

    Most of my college schoolmates and instructors lament the fact that we're forced to take class online. Personally, I think it's a blessing in disguise. Online classes = not being forced into interacting with other humans.

    I don't think this is an unpopular opinion. The right glasses look fantastic on a fair number of people. Some of these people even look a little bit better with their glasses on. I don't know why that is.

    What kind of dumplings? The ones filled with pork, duck, etc. or the ones that go into a stew?

    I love both. :grin:

    Well I definitely hate any kind of pork. I don’t think I’ve tried duck though so probably pork.

    I don’t like sushi. It’s bland.

    Ooooooh I have one! I absolutely HATE potatoes. Especially baked potatoes. I don't know why, but I feel like I'm the only person in the world who dislikes potatoes.
