I reckon we need a thread where people can just post their unpopular opinions for the hell of it.

Who has the worst of all the unpopular opinions. I’ll start.

Seabrook crisps aren’t any good any more. They are weak in both structure and flavour.

Pepsi and Coke taste completely different, and anyone that says they taste the same is a wrong'un ;)

And Coke is the superior product.

The correct order for Coke/Pepsi drinks is this:

Cherry Pepsi Max
Pepsi Max
Pepsi
Coke
Raspberry Pepsi Max
Diet Pepsi
Coke Zero
Diet Coke


I am not familiar enough with the other flavours of either brand to rank them.

A compact disc is a better physical format than a vinyl LP.

It's smaller, you don't need to get up every 20 minutes, and uses actual lasers!

When more polluting cars are exempt, having to pay £9 to drive through Bradford to get to somewhere that isn't a shithole is annoying.

Rain falling on you sucks and should be limited to either only ever falling at night OR only over bodies of water and we implement better water irrigation and distribution systems.

We should be absolutely fine with having periods without electricity in domestic situations, and lights should never be used inside while it's broad daylight outside.

It is not. It replaced the old one a good while ago, when I decided that beating you at Sensible Soccer many years ago didn't need memorialising any more!

:this: I come back home after doing the school run most days and have to go around the house turning all the lights off. I believe my record is 13 (which included shutting a wardrobe with a light in). Infuriating.

I now know how Q*Bert feels.

It's a good point. South Africa are doing something funky where they, I think, keep them running - and wifi, too - so if we could just do the same, we'll be fine.

Course, like everything else, it'll mean rich people getting round it and the poor not. But we're in hypothetical world here.

Lots of people now have generators at home, and a fully stocked freezer will stay below zero for a few hours anyway.

It’d also be pretty rough on people that didn’t have gas supplies to their homes, so they couldn’t cook, or indeed heat their homes, or use a heated blanket to take the cold off, and would unfairly affect older people in that sense.

Plus many people work from home, both remotely and running small businesses, and need electricity to do that.

Also, because of the set up of my mother’s house it would mean she couldn’t use either bathroom as neither have any windows nor natural light that reach them.

JBR, it’s a rubbish idea.

I kind of assume JBR means overnight, rather than at times when people actually need to do stuff

Oh, I'm much worse than that. Some overnight, for sure. But some like South Africa's rolling power cuts. Which are a terrible example for my terrible idea, given that they hate it and it's the result of corruption. However, pushing on!

As we're relatively rich we can do it in the 5 months or so when you don't need heating. 2-3 hour stints, at planned times, and only one in daylight hours, so you can fit cooking etc. round that (I'm aware people would never stand for it, but let's imagine they have to, and there's just shrugging acceptance that we're a bit too addicted to using energy, and we can work around it).

That would very much unfairly affect women who carry out the bulk of both domestic tasks and unpaid caregiving. For anyone who relied on formula or expressed milk, not being able to warm that milk for a nursing baby would be awful. Not being able to express would be awful. More women have small home businesses whilst also providing childcare, so not being able to use equipment they need to carry out that work would damage that further.

True, but the artwork has suffered because of the small size of the packaging. Album covers used to be works of art and you didn't need a magnifying glass to be able to read the lyrics, etc.

Having said that, the advent of digital formats like MP3, WAV, AIFF, AU, etc. allow you to carry your whole record collection around with you so you can listen to it anywhere, making vinyl/cd formats pretty much irrelevant.

There's the argument that digital sound quality isn't as good as analogue, but even if this is true, at my age my hearing is no longer really good enough to tell the difference. I've got big vinyl, CD, MiniDisc and cassette collections and I don't want to get rid of them, but I rarely use any of them these days.

The look (and sound) of really long fingernails gives me the ick. And fair play to anyone who has them, but I don’t know how those people go about getting anything done. My nails get to 3mm and I have to trim them because they are annoying as heck and the sensory feedback of them hitting the keys as I’m typing, before my finger pads do, makes me feel so uncomfortable that I feel a bit punchy punchy.

I have properly switched to digital now - I just use YouTube premium! It automatically decides to download stuff if I listen to it a lot, otherwise it streams.

There's a bunch of videos of nice ladies with long nails masturbating, and fuck me just the idea of it makes me wince.

That’s just impractical, and probably not very sanitary. It’s bad enough scrubbing my short nails clean after I’ve been actual gardening. Imagine some of those 5cm long nails after they’ve been hoeing the lady garden.
