I've heard of them but never tried one. Do they get grossly soggy? Do you eat it after the soup is gone? I have so many questions.

The bread is fairly hearty, but it mostly works with thicker soups like broccoli cheese, tomato soup, or something similar. The bread absorbs some of the soup and softens up, and the outside crust is baked hard enough not to leak. Scoop the bread from the sides into the soup as you eat it and it’s delicious.

Well okay, not all Mexican food has jalapeńos, then it has no flavor because it's all just tomatoes. Italians know how to tomato wrangle and can do a better version of salsa (minestrone)

But salsa doesn't require tomatoes ( or jalapenos). I have a hard time believing that's the closest analogous Italian food to salsa. Even pico doesn't taste like minestrone.

"gamey" meat tastes much better than regular beef and pork and stuff, i have never understood why most people don't seem to like gamey flavors or why the word has negative connotations

strong flavors in general are better. i love pickled herring and if i ever get the chance to try hakarl or surstromming id probably love it

durians too, i can't think of a more delicious fruit

cod liver oil also tastes great and i like to put it on rice

also love natto

im just posting my unpopular palate now i guess

Similarly, I love organ meats. I'm not trying to invoke the Simpsons meme here*, but I love liver and onions and I have no idea why it's constantly used as shorthand for "a disgusting meal people end up being forced to eat." It's one of my favorite dishes! And I think one of the top three tacos I've had in my life was beef tongue, but you mention eating tongue and most people act like you suggested eating poo poo - directly from a butt.

When liver is bad it's way worse than meat. I still don't know how I managed to get a piece of liver at a lunch place where half was OK and the other half tasted like pissshit.

once every few months my father in law takes me out to an organ meat restaurant in tokyo, we eat liver, various types of stomach and intestines, and other odd bits like chin or trotters, all barbecued at the table with spicy sauces and stuff. it all rules and i look forward to that place every time

I get if you're whining about the trend of "slow, lilting version of a driving song" that gets thrown into movie trailers all the time now. Like that is an overused cliche. In the last year alone I remember "Forever Young" in that horrible Will Smith movie where he fights his clone, if I recall correctly the Power Rangers trailer a few years ago did it too, and there's more examples...

but that wouldn't be an unpopular opinion. Most people are almost as sick of that as they are "Imagine Dragons."

I thought the version of “Everybody Knows” that they used for Justice League was pretty good, but that’s probably just because Leonard Cohen slaps and it’s difficult to gently caress that up.

That "7 ate 9!" joke bugs me, because it feels like an intentional misdirection. Like when anybody starts questioning 7 somebody will immediately make that joke, which makes me think that joke was created to distract people from the fact that 7 is a genuinely hosed up number.

It doesn't make any sense, it doesn't work. You've got the classic base ten numbers, 1-6 and 8-10, all fantastic numbers. But then you get 7, doesn't get divided by anything, doesn't multiply up into anything sensible. It's an intruder into the otherwise sensible math. It's like some sci-fi story where an alien has arrived on earth and used mind control to convince everybody that it was always here and is perfectly normal.

On it's own I liked it, but in the movie itself it was hard to not burst into laughter because I couldn't shake 1-2-3 garbage of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad from my brain and it was like "drat y'all are cocky if you still think I'm automatically sold on any of this being remotely cool.

The truth is that six is afraid of seven because seven is a registered six-offender.

8 is a number i associate with beefiness, in reviews its the lower limit of "good", it looks like a sideways pair of tits or rear end, just a solid number. 9 is just the super saiyan version of 8

6 is a very mediocre number, getting a 6 in a review means something's only okay, but still it's a pass, it even looks kinda lovely visually with the little tail sticking out the top

7 is just sinister, it means "damning with faint praise", it's worse than getting a 6, it's not even friendly and round, even 5 (another hosed up piece of poo poo) has a little round bit to soften the blow

Episode 7 was solid and Episode 8 was really great both in spite of and because it pissed off so many losers who couldn't handle it.

Episode 9 is terrible because it feels like someone you once respected debasing themselves to please you for no particular reason.

My own unpopular opinion-- keeping Shrek alive "ironically" is awful.

I remember during my initial screening that scene where the raisin alien give Chewbacca a medal for literally no reason other than fanservice and I reflexively did a motion in the theater while some other dude clapped wildly. He saw me and stopped. It was an MST3K riff fest I tell you.

Like it wasn't offensive as a movie, but it was like meeting up with a rich ex-girlfriend and she "surprises" you by wearing her old cheerleader uniform, but instead of being hot you can see on her face how weirdly desperate she is for your approval and love despite having no reason to be so insecure and it's just a massive turn-off.

I was kinda lukewarm on The Force Awakens, but Rogue One convinced me the Disney Star Wars series wasn't going to be worth watching. It sucked so bad. Characters with zero personality going to a series of random planets and then calmly dying at the end, having learned nothing and not changed at all.
And the Death Star flaw being an intentionally designed weakpoint is the dumbest thing in the whole world and makes no sense.
