    Rush is with out a doubt the biggest love/hate band I can think of. I hate, but have had people want to fight me because of it.

    Totally disagree. Palates change over time. I used to be a picky eater but now I eat (and enjoy) almost anything. Started to change when I forced myself to eat healthier.

    I feel you. I've seen those guys that are willing to throw down over it. Seriously, let it go.

    My first tour, after the show, I saw two guys duking it out over this:

    "I'm the bigger Rush fan."
    "No I"M THE BIGGER RUSH FAN."
    "NO. I AM."
    "NO I AM."
    Body blow, body blow...

    Not to mention if he lives in NYC everything is more expensive so he really probably isn't making as much in comparison (says the guy who lives in the Twin Cities :confused:).

    I ONLY do this.

    And as this relates to spoilers...I don't care at all about spoilers. You could tell me every plot point of the next Star Wars movie and I'd still go see it and presumably enjoy it (if it's good). By the time I saw Empire Strikes Back in 1980 everyone in America knew Darth Vader was Luke's father and I didn't feel cheated and it was still awesome.

    Spoiler alert culture is getting a bit out of hand and childish.

    He was just in the Twin Cities for ~5 years and moved to NYC a couple months ago.

    Jon Snow sucked, was annoying. He should've stayed dead. I'm sad Dany didn't roast him.
    Jeffrey Epstein was misunderstood.

    Reformer pilates is a better, tougher, and healthier workout than CrossFit. Nobody who has done both can honestly tell me there's a better core workout than pilates. Some weird macho stigma about it.

    I think a big allure of Rush is the pure musical talent of each member of the band. That, combined with a history of actively avoiding conforming to radio standards, makes for a very "nerdy/geeky" style of fan that takes a ton of offense when people say they don't like Rush.

    There are songs in their catalog that I don't particularly enjoy listening to and I understand why Geddy's voice alone may turn some people off, but their abilities and influence on music are substantial. And for them to stick together and make music for as long as they did was impressive as well.

    This hurts more than any personal or political attack ever could. Except for eggs. Eggs are dumb.

    Eating a healthy diet doesn't have to be complicated, or expensive.

    The 'American Dream' of having the oversized/priced house filled with a bunch of unneeded stuff and keeping up with the neighbors is really unhealthy.

    Fishing and hunting aren't 'man/woman vs. fish/animal'. Shooting something while it's just doing every day things isn't a battle, nor is putting something in front of something that looks like food just to capture it.

    Pheasants are an invasive species and have no purpose outside of being something to hunt, and complaining about their population being down is whining about not being able to kill something, which is weird.

    Ranch, ketchup, and mustard belong in the garbage.

    I didn't think it was possible to hate eggs.
    I don't care how you cook them, they're great.

    Aesthetically speaking, the Iowa campus isn't all that bad.

    Fruit does not belong with meat. Quit ruining perfectly good chicken salad with grapes, raisins, dates, berries, and/or nuts. Keep fruit out of any salad, for that matter, except fruit salad.

    Star Wars movies are really dumb. I'll allow an exception for children.

    But grown men who dress up to watch them or name their kids after fictional characters are on the same level as those weird guys who watch My Little Pony or Anime.
