*gasp*

In this vein, peanut butter and chocolate don’t really go together. Maybe when the ‘peanut butter’ is sugary fake nonsense à la Reese’s. Peanut butter needs something acidic to balance the heavy fat and saltiness, not something bitter like chocolate — it becomes way too dry.

I don't think everyone needs a masters and above degree. I don't know how relevant it is in context of other countries, but over here, we have so many people doing masters and not really being that level... or at least I feel so, from that one masters course I took in university.

Here’s a classic: Bestiality, while gross and inconceivable to most of us, is not as outrageously immoral as people make it out to be, especially when juxtaposed with people’s indifference toward slaughterhouses as evidenced from their persistence in eating meat. :keke:

I believe in a woman's right to decide. Notice I worded it a bit different. Just like being gay, it's not a "choice" as.much as a "decision". That decision has many factors and influances. One other thing though, it would be required to inform the sperm donor unless in case of extreme circumstances. Afterwards if necessary, but the other should know. Still totally the woman's decision.

- For the most part, I love The British Royal family and I never want to see it removed from British culture (although I wouldn't support an absolutist/non-constituational monarchy returning)
- I don't see the appeal of Harry Styles whatsoever. In fact, probably 9 times out of 10 when there's a man loads of women seem to find attractive, I'm like "wtf him? Why?..."
- Posh Spice/Victoria Beckham is my favourite Spice Girl
- Assassin's Creed Syndicate is my favourite Assassin's Creed game
- I do think you should be polite and say "thank you" when someone makes a gesture like holding a door open for you. We're not fucking entitled savages, they didn't have to stop and help you, show some appreciation and civility please. Some reciprocity would be nice.
- It's perfectly fine for restaurants to have a "no children under X age" policy and I support the fuck out of the ones who do. It's ok Diane, your screaming "24-month-old" bundle of joy isn't going to remember coming to dinner with you years from now, they don't need to be here.
- I hate how un-classy people generally dress these days, and it's the men too not just women. I feel like if you look at previous eras, even the lower classes usually made an effort to look nice albeit on a budget. Since like the 90s on up, way too many people look like they just rolled out of bed and put on the first thing that was semi-clean and it's not appealing.
- Christmas has become an utterly meaningless consumer-fest, where people spend money like there's no next year and then cry about it for the first month of the next year. Gary, it's ok if your house isn't as exuberantly decorated as Darren's next door is, try not to get yourself in debt ok.

While we're on that subject, the best responses to "thank you" are "you're welcome" or "my pleasure" — not "yup", "okay", or "no problem".

Could not agree more. Put in a little effort, people, or stay home.

- Christmas has become an utterly meaningless consumer-fest, where people spend money like there's no next year and then cry about it for the first month of the next year.
I'm not Christian, but I still find meaning in Christmas. My gift-giving is mostly home-made items, often edible. I make a point of spending no money today, "Black Friday".

I think all moral crimes should be legalized and all vice squads to be disbanded. That doesn't mean I don't think they shouldn't be regulated though. For instance, prostitution should be regulated to prevent sex trafficking; heroin and oxycodone should be regulated just like alcohol; and gambling should be regulated as well.

A big problem in Mumbai is child crippling by gangs. They’ll do this to get people to give more to these child beggars. I think we should legalize child crippling and tax it. This way we eliminate the need for black markets and the gangs who run them. Child crippling needs to be regulated.

I can't argue with that. Especially in Mexico. We all have a right to buy the candy from those little pimped out children!

Here’s another controversial opinion that seems pretty non-controversial to me: cuckolding is not a sign of weakness or immorality, it does not signify a lack or distortion of love or commitment, and its disparagement sends noxious messages.
