Unpopular Opinions
« on: Fri, 10 January 2020, 18:28:22 »
A thread for voicing your opinions that people might disagree with.  ;)




For example: Young people who dye their hair white/grey: You don't look like an anime character or a Witcher, it just makes you look like someone's grandparent.

dogs smell better than cats.. cat musk is unbearable.


To me cats smell like nothing and dogs stink. When you pet a dog your hand smells terrible, like a wet blanket from a swamp.

cats have no smell, but dogs do; you have to give them baths and **** and you have to take them outside to piss and ****

cats are pretty much self sufficient, give them a bowl of food and water and a catbox and they're all set

Even worse, they are needy and annoying and want to touch you with their cold wet slimy disgusting noses!
Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT

Cat OWNERS, are the only ones who can't smell cats.  But to everyone else that Cat-Pee smell is all over the owner and their house.

Cat pee smell is immediately obvious to non-owners.

I had a client for a time who smelled horribly of cat piss, but she needed quite a bit of computer work, so I was game, and she was paying well.

However after the second visit I just couldn't do it anymore, the piss smell permeated everything, me , my tools, hell my flash drive that I was using to install basic programs off of stank, and all it did was plug in and then be put back in my pocket.

Nice lady, horrible idea of how to take care of cats.

I can count on one hand as many people I know that took care of cats enough that they didn't stink or smell like piss. I wish that number was much higher. (But it is possible.)

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'm so done with POP figures, I really can't enjoy them, I feel like they make all media look the same, and like Noisy here said, manage to make them all look like Soulless "Coraline" clones of the real characters.

Your best friend is not cleaning after his cat often enough then:)
Or uses regular sand in his ****-box instead of some fast-absorbing litter.

I have no clue.
But his bathroom floor is also 'sticky' so my guessing is they just don't clean often enough.

Yeah, could be the case.
We clean our cat's litter every day, plus we use Catsan, basically it doesn't smell at all.
Plus male cats can piss all over the place to mark their territory. Snip-snip can fix this problem :eek:
Our cat was sterilised. He occasionally shags his favourite pillow, but it also doesn't smell :thumb:
Anyway, when you smell a cat from very close, you will find out that they do not smell - their hair is very clean, cats clean themselves all the time. Cleanest pet animals I've ever seen.

I actually thought of starting a thread like this a couple days ago, but now I don't recall the opinion I wished to express.

On the topic of dogs:

I would rather take my dog outside to pee and poop than clean a disgusting ammonia box of crap.

I've had both and have gone back and forth over which I like more. I've determined that I like dogs more, and I really liked only my particular cat because he had a good personality (cat-ality?). My mom's house is finally getting tolerable in terms of cat smell after running an air purifier for a couple months straight.

Dogs were selectively bred from wild species by humans, (Domesticated).  We did not Evolve together in any symbiotic form , like say, Lichen  (cyanobacteria  + fungi).

It's more akin to the situation of Cabbages where we selected for bigger softer edible leaf.

In a russian experiment, they were able to select for and create human friendly Foxes within a short few generations,  such animals took on physical characteristics of modern dog-breeds, patchy colors not of the original all ashblack species.

I knew someone would pick that apart. I was going to forego the quote and say "developed", but I liked the sentiment of the quote more. The point is they've been a part of us for a long time.

Vegans who say they're on "Plant based diets" are just vegans in denial.

There are some very important differences in the terminology.

Oreo Cookies are Vegan, Spring Rolls are vegan, Deep fried Funnel cakes are vegan.

Someone who is on Whole-Food-Plant-Based  only eats minimally processed PLANTS, excludes refined oils.

A Vegan could be into animal rights, anti-fracking, anti-drilling etc.

Someone who is WFPB, could be pro-fracking, pro arctic drilling, know nothing about animal rights, and work in any of the variety of cow-murder industries.

There IS often an overlap of ethical areas of veganism with people who are also WFPB.   That does not mean WFPB is Veganism/Vegan,  Because it is not.

Cats are superior to dogs.

dogs smell better than cats.. cat musk is unbearable.


To me cats smell like nothing and dogs stink. When you pet a dog your hand smells terrible, like a wet blanket from a swamp.

cats have no smell, but dogs do; you have to give them baths and **** and you have to take them outside to piss and ****

cats are pretty much self sufficient, give them a bowl of food and water and a catbox and they're all set
That’s such bull. Cat owners always say that they’re clean and all that but our cat loves to muck around on the recently pissed and pooped on litter box. Then she licks herself as if being covered in spit is any better. F that. Every time I bathe her ( once a week ) the water is left dark as hell. She’s also super needy , always needs to be on top of someone or she will not shut up. Not that dogs are cleaner or less needy tho.

It depends.

Do we go as far as to offend people? are controversial opinions that aren't offensive really that controversial?

My real life opinion on this is pretty controversial haha, but I think for the sake of being civil we should at least stop at opinions that insult something someone else can't control?

Vegan culture is very broad.

It's like saying human culture,  one doesn't agree with the majority of what's included.

The bulk of vegans are doing what they're doing for the wrong reasons and in the wrong way.

Agreed! The word "vegan" carries a connotation with it and that's why you shy away from using the word.. and I understand why. That's common with a lot of things nowadays. Good news is we're all people just trying to get healthier while achieving the best CPU/GPU benchmarks possible. :D

I eat meat btw, pro multi-protein-source advocate.

I think the T's are holding back the LGBT community as a whole and are needlessly over complicating and confusing the general populace's acceptance.

So they are an isolated subset of an isolated subset?

Where would you have them be?
Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT

I just don't think their goals and attitudes line up with the goals of the LGB community as a whole.

How is it that you have formed an opinion on the subject to begin with, on such a specific subset of that particular acceptance movement ?
