Odd way of looking at it. I would hope that no one is that thin skinned.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

In answer to the bonus question, for me, when it comes to pop culture then I resent the way that hype and marketing impact a people's understanding of what is good, critically speaking, especially when it becomes unquestioned. Of course people's taste varies and that's fine but theres a lot of things that people are uncritically accepting of as being better than everything else, and if I add this to my own apathy about it, it becomes a dislike.

Shitting on things.

Dunno, but I think it goes a long way towards my having no/few friends, as I'm overly inclined to take the contrary opinion and play the devil's advocate, defending whatever is under attack, whenever I'm with a group that's shitting on something. Nothing bonds like a common enemy.

I furiously hate everything about this show from the really bad jokes, to the really bad laugh track, to the annoying characters. I will never understand why it's a top rated show it is total dog shit. It annoys me so much, especially the dude in green (Sheldon?) I want to punch him in the face so badly that when I see him in those Intel commercials I still want to deck him.

First time I saw it I was like ohh that's the kid from the "Rosanne" show. Then he spoke and I was like... "really?" that was some of the worst "acting" and annoying whinny fake voice I have ever heard...total shit show...

I generally hate top 40 music because it's watered down for the lowest common denominator, and comes off as soulless.

Of course, I will admit this leaves me vulnerable to dismissing great tunes based on their popularity. Please note this does not include Taylor Swift. Fuck Taylor Swift.

You know why I hate that show? My parents love it because they think it gives them insight to my life. (Same reason I hate Napoleon Dynamite, only replace parents with brother.)

Babies. I'm sorry. They're not cute. They'll never be cute. And they just get worse as they get older. They're not even worth talking to for the first 13 years of their lives.

Funny thing is, I'm a total animal lover. I don't mind if my cat wakes me in the middle of the night for no good reason. I routinely smell her butt to make sure she doesn't have poop tangled up in there. My brother, on the other hand, hates animals. Every reason he hates animals doesn't bother him in the slightest if it's from a kid.

* "New" country music - - it ain't country music (it's barely even music)
* The beach - I can enjoy the beach for an hour or two . . . but all day? There is nothing more boring.
* Manga (on the other hand, I love to mangia)
* Harry Potter
* Magic: The Gathering - never played, but the thought of it makes me shiver for some reason
* Painting minis (no patience . . . but I don't mind painting larger things)
* Reality TV shows

EDIT - added:

* The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Sugary sweet entrees.

I have a huge sweet tooth. I have a hard time keeping my hands out of the cookie bowl or the candy dish.

But I don't want sugar added to my entrees.

So much processed food, and restaurant prepared food has sweeteners added. I find it gross. But apparently most of you like it since businesses sell the stuff.
