    The 'Things you will NEVER understand' Thread.

    So... as a person, I have some quirks that set me apart from most of the population. Most of them are pretty trivial, but what they all have in common is that when I think about a lot of these differences from those around me, I just cannot fathom why other people are different to me. At all.

    I'll start off with a pretty trivial one:

    Making someone lunch.

    So, I make a guy a sandwich. Its ham. And Branston Pickle.

    Open lid of Pickle, smell sweet and sour jammy stench. Scoop out weird hard chunks of supposedly vegetables.

    Fathom as to why ANYONE would put this near their cake-hole. As a logical, reasoning thinker, I cannot at all think of any reason to eat this stuff. I really can't.

    I will NEVER understand this.

    Coleslaw, it looks like sick and it smells like it too, I don't know why anyone would eat that stuff.

    Staying with food: Why frozen burgers are sold in packs of 4 or 8, but burger buns are sold in packs of 6.

    Si non discrepit, cur dicit?

    (I think discrepo should be subjunctive possibly, but I'm buggered if I'm going to work that out.)

    I've a friend who won't eat condiments or sauces of any kind. No mustard, no ketchup, no HP, no pickle, no mayonnaise, no hollandaise, no béarnaise. If it comes in a sachet in a cafe or is found on the same supermarket aisle as Branston, she won't eat it. That's far harder for me to get my around than disliking one specific flavour.

    INO,RITE?

    What I mean is i just cannot understand why a flavour/texture which is utterly abhorrent to me is perfectly enjoyable to someone else. Surely it must taste the same... so why do I not even like the smell?

    Why I've heard people talking about multitudinous legions of rabid Twilight fans but never actually encountered a single person who had anything good to say about it. Twilight fans therefore appropriately occupy the space of my brain devoted to other folkloric creatures.

    Oh I see, I'd read it as "ARE THEIR BRAINS MADE OF CHEESE!?" rather than what I'm now gathering is more "Why the fuck are tastebuds so fickle and mental?" Which I can sort of agree with.

    The Iron Man movies are OK, nothing special, but can still be amusing.
