    I love New York City. The first time I visited there, I got a feeling like, "Oh, this is what's been missing in my life." Maybe more of a confession than an unpopular opinion.

    If you want an unpopular opinion, I say f#%@ the homeless.

    Here's another. Calling alcoholism a disease is just placing the blame for your bad decisions on something besides yourself, absolving you of all culpability. "I can't help it, I have a disease." I call BS.

    We should eliminate the 40 hour work week; especially for salaried staff. Get your work done and be responsible. I don’t care when/where you work (face to face meetings aside) as long as you get your work done. If you can get all your work done by Wednesday and get a 4 day weekend, good for you.

    I also deride our country’s obsession with workaholic-ism. People pride themselves on working 80+ hours. I see nothing to be proud of when that’s taking you away from things that really matter like family and friends. I’m not impressed, so stop bragging about it.

    I can't eat ketchup, so honey mustard is my go-to.

    I like breakfast food in general, but I don’t usually care for pancakes/waffles/French toast/donuts. Fills me up too fast and having syrup is too sweet for my taste.

    If I’m out for breakfast, give me eggs, breakfast meats, hash browns, fruit etc every time over the other stuff.

    the fact that they are protected from being fired because of it can be an employer's nightmare

    -The celebration of “ope” is getting out of hand.

    -Pastry stouts and milkshake IPAs have jumped the damn shark.

    -Billie Eilish is absolute dog ****.

    -All drugs and prostitution should be legal and regulated.

    Top Gun is a horrible movie

    In-N-Out is severely overrated

    Marvel movies are average at best

    If someone asks me where I want to vacation, it's always mountains/snow.

    Winter is the best season

    If I have to record a game, I'll often check the score ahead of time so I can watch it stress-free.

    Additional confession: Sometimes I won't tell my wife that I know the score and snicker at her worrying.

    When the pie comes out each Thanksgiving two of my nephew-in-laws launch into the Family Guy cool whip scene. It's like a new family tradition. :rolleyes:

    I feel as if Florida is a bit overrated as a vacation spot.

    PB belongs on a lot of things - burgers, bread with bananas, right off the spoon.

    Agree with the chips on the sandwich. Not sure how unpopular that is, because it is delicious.

    Taylor Swift is overrated as an artist.

    I love Amazon, but part of me wishes it never existed.

    when we were looking at building, all the Parade homes had "handscraped" wood flooring. To look like old barnwood all beat up and scratched. Like new jeans with holes in them. I was like wtf why would I pay for this ****. We put in nice smooth wood floors. Told DH we'll get the scratches "organically".

    Four years later watching the toddler throw toys at the floor and smear avocado into the joints and pull him around in the laundry basket with a piece of gravel stuck underneath (oops) I say "see, we're getting that lived in antique look all on our own."

    If I'm watching ISU hoops on record and we're not doing well, I'll skip ahead 5 minutes at a time to see if the score gets any better. Why waste my time and be mad if it's just going to get worse.

    But if you're anything like me you'll take in that well formed, reasonable opinion and then go back to the albums and discover that no, The Beatles aren't overrated...the genius is still there from the beginning. Over-hyped? Yes. I guarundamn-tee you John Lennon himself would use that word for some of the lavish praise heaped on that band over the years.

    2 things that are to easy to have and should be regulated more:

    Driver's license
    Kids

    Side note about the kids, Im at a point where Im seriously questioning whether I want kids or not. I have at least 5 friends from high school and college that are expecting their second child, plus my sister is due in 3 weeks.
