It’s question time!
Ramble of the Day
I had a string of thoughts yesterday while thinking about cake, which I’ll detail now. Who doesn’t love cake? People that don’t like cake. [Expletive] people who don’t like cake. Except I don’t really mean that.
That basically answers the question I’m going to ask. What is a take you feel very strongly about, would defend, but also wouldn’t ruin your opinion of a person if they disagreed? For me, it’s obviously that cake is very awesome and that potatoes are very awesome, and I strongly disagree with anyone that strongly disagrees with me on this. That said, it’s going to take other stuff for me to change my opinion on you.
They don’t all have to be food takes, of course, and they can be more creative than x is the best and you must respect it. Maybe it’s that blankets are great at all times of year including the very hot months, or that 35 degrees Fahrenheit (1.7 degrees Celsius) is only relatively cold and that English people are actually a little bit spoiled with their weather. Maybe it’s that we should be saying twenty-nineteen, not two thousand and nineteen.
Did I just come up with those on the spot? Kind of; it probably took me about 20 minutes between this, watching television, and eating cake to think of those, but that’s beside the point. Just go for it. I trust you all and your possibly bonkers opinions.
tl;dr: Serious opinions with wiggle room.
