I prefer owning my favorite TV shows on DVD. It's kind of like an insurance policy against the show not being streamed.

I liked the US version, but the UK version was superior, IMHO. It was only two seasons, plus a special.

The style IS the show. There are lots of shows with that style, and most of them don't really have a good reason for the subject to be filmed, but I don't feel that takes away from the shows, whatsoever.

It’s become a cliche and a crutch.

It's drivel, but there's always a new generation of fifteen year olds who think it's just the bee's knee's.

Re: What's your unpopular opinion?

I think licking things like ice cream and tongue depressors at doctor's offices and then putting them right back is gross and disgusting.


At least that sure seems like an unpopular opinion recently.
WTF is wrong with people.

I worked with a guy when I was 16 that tapped his ashes into the pepper shaker at a Denny's . Funny at the time, but disgusting.

I thought it was great when I was fifteen!

Now I usually skip that song when I listen to the album.

It's not even the greatest show called The Office.

Rainy Day Women is not about drugs. It's about women in a bad mood because it's raining.

I never had a problem with that song. Of course I haven't heard it in probably a decade. It's not one that ever gets played on the radio and I don't have it in my rotation.

Money that flies out of armored bank trucks onto the open highway should be free for any and all to help themselves to, without threat or repercussions of any kind whatever!

They lost to the youth team of a men's professional team which isn't exactly the same team as just a bunch of 15 year old boys who are good at soccer. For example I am pretty sure the Under 13 Barcelona or Under 13 Manchester United Team might be able to beat both the Mens and Womens US National Team's.

I don't know how I feel about that. It's not like it's salvage rights where the owner of the money is long gone. It would be like if you drop your phone someone can pick it up and it's theirs now.

No it's not.

Anyone can drop their phone by accident.

By comparison, an armored car company has one job to do. If they are so incompetent that they let the money fly out of the vehicle, they deserve to be punished. The owner of the money does not deserve to be punished. But the owner of the armored car company deserves to be punished.

I'm not saying that people who grab the money should be allowed to keep it. What I am saying is that if the people who grab the money are allowed to keep it, it should be at the expense of the owner of the armored car company, and not at the expense of the owner of the money.

If money manages to escape armored car, money should remain free!

I agree with you there, but I'm not so sure that it should be legal for people to pick up the money like that when there is a clear owner. Any lawyers or cops on here?

Re: What's your unpopular opinion?

To me it's no different than if the ATM gives you the wrong amount of money or just starts spitting out cash. Unless you're standing there with your card in the machine it's likely not yours.

Re: What's your unpopular opinion?

Soda in the bottle (plastic 2L) tastes better than soda in cans or glass bottles because ir's about 1/5th the price!
