I think cockroaches are, in a way, kind of cute. They do help us in a number of ways and I get mad when people kill them.

I always wondered if this thread would return!

I think pigeons are wonderful birds and deserve more respect in our culture.

Agreed! They are also far more intelligent than most people think, they have amazing memories.

Also, dandelions and other so called "weeds" are very beautiful and also have a wide variety of medicinal uses or you can just eat them. Whenever I see all those yellow flowers everywhere or the white puffs it makes me smile.

I like pigeons and dandelions!

Actually I dislike regular lawn grass. My yard has tons of a low growing weed that gets beautiful purple flowers in it in spring! Ground ivy I think it's called. Then there's the stuff that looks just strawberry plants without berries, Queen Annes lace, many native plants people call weeds.

 

I dislike so many daffodils. Why do people plant tons of daffodil bulbs, but go to great lengths to kill dandelions? No, don't answer.

If something drops on the ground, it's still ok to eat. Consuming bits and pieces of our environment prevents illness.

In Australia you can buy the giant native ones as pets.  I've been tempted...

I like taking the bus to work.  It gives me the chance to walk two miles (to and from the bus stop) every day and I get to meet and interact with people that I otherwise would not have the opportunity. Even when the wind chill was in the teens and 20's last week and I live in Florida!

Cockroaches ARE cute. My niece is actually allergic to them.(then again she's allergic to everything outdoors. That'd is the worst thing ever.)

I think frogs and turtles are really pretty. Especially dart frogs.(though I'm nkt gonna touch a poisonous dart frog. Still they look REALY pretty.)

Wearing a hat to keep your head warm in winter is far more important than how your hair looks.  If you are going to be outside in subzero temps, even to run from your car to a building, you should protect your head as well as the rest of your body.

It is entirely possible to get emotionally involved with a person you only meet and know online and have your heart broken down the line.

Brussels sprouts are delicious if they are cooked right. If prepared in the wrong way, they taste like a sulfuric mess. My guess is that a lot of people who hate them probably had them in childhood where their parents boiled the heck out of them and ruined the taste.

I absolutely detest Captain America.  He is the epitome of brainwashed, patriotic, mindless servitude to the elite.

You could have the power of the gods! Yet you wear a flag on your chest and think you fight a battle of nations! I have seen the future, Captain! There are no flags!

I hate pop and have never ever liked cola or dr. pepper. I don't understand how anyone can enjoy that much sweet. It's like a liquid pixie stick.

I don't know if it's unpopular, but there should be a helluva lot more regulation and education of driving behavior. I also think we should spend a lot of money prioritizing and building safety improvements to our roadways.
