Since the other thread has gone past the "5000 post limit", I decided to create the new one.

I'll start with the last opinion I posted, and some new ones:
Quote:
Threads shouldn't have to close at 5000 posts.

(Yeah, I know )

Hiking is boring
Chest hair is not attractive
Memes are not all that funny
Cherry Pie is better than apple pie

DON'T BRING MY MOTHER INTO THIS!

I like hiking but I dont like lots of hills I prefer a flat hike. I like scenery but I dont like walking up hills. I also dont like walking fast, hiking should be relaxed.

Hairy chests or hairless chests are fine by me.

Cherry pie and apple pie are both great, I think overall i prefer apple tho

I like memes but I was sad yesterday as I was looking at ForeverAlone pics and Socially Awkward Penguin pics and I related too much to them. : /

Okay, I guess it I shouldn't really say it's boring, but the last hike I went on was a complete nightmare and ruined hiking for me altogether.
I don't see what was so special about the rock on the top anyways, if I had the strength, I would have pushed it off the mountain when we got there.

I dont like the new Unpopular opinions thread


haha just kidding.

I also like cherry pie, and apple.
Chest hair is ok if its not Ape style and I just dont get most memes..I must be old.


Also the 'how veg*n am I' debate is getting boring. Its as bad as the 'What is Goth' debate

I think it is very sad that the "Introduce Yourself Forum" threads get so few comments.

I have no idea if this opinion is unpopular or not, but I've met people who have been surprised when I've said it, so it might be.

I don't believe in perfection.

I think hiking can be fun only if I have my dogs with me. I hate walking anywhere by myself, but I love when my dogs are with me.

Chest hair is very unnatractive, I agree

I admire people who have better things to do than sit around plucking out their body hair.

I have a Chihuahua, to keep up with people, he has to run, we end up carrying him after maybe a mile or so.. if that.

Me either. Most of the time, I think perfection is relative. I've always disliked the saying, "I'm not perfect." Anytime anyone says that I just want to respond with, "DUH! No one is."

As mentioned above, I disagree. Nothing's ever perfect, temporarily or permanently.

I consider myself a perfectionist. I'm always striving to do better at everything I do, and to get things as perfect as possible, always knowing that true perfection will never happen.

Yeah, I have a pug so he gets tired really easily and we end up carrying him in a half mile, too. But I'm talkin more of small trails, not full hiking. My old neighborhood had horse trails to walk pets along a creek, but I guess it wasn't full hiking but I wouldnt even walk there by myself, I'd find it boring without my dog

Health-wise, yes. But there are people who would even disagree with that. Someone else might prefer a sports drink or something. Or maybe they'd prefer water with lemon. It's really a matter of opinion.

I think perfection can exist under very specific circumstances. For example, if an artist were to draw a portrait of someone that wound up looking exactly like what he'd intended to draw, I'd agree that it was perfect. I don't really agree that there's a "perfect" way to do most things though. A lot of the time, it's subjective, so I think you could argue that it doesn't always exist.

I am now of the opinion that veganism is in fact a competition.
