#ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion

16 Dec

I said earlier today that there may be more to come, and so here are 25 more tweets which all happened to have the above hashtag Twitter meme – I didn’t normally do hashtagged tweets, but I liked this particular one.

The world would have been better off if America had stayed broken in two, Germany had won WWI, and the Japs conquered Asia later.

It would have been better for Western civilization and the world if the American Revolution had failed. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Universal suffrage was and is a grave mistake; and should be ended.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The LOTR movie trilogy is way, way, way fricking overrated. It was okay, but on reflection, not great, at all.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bruce Springsteen and Steve Earle aren’t very talented musicians.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Racial egalitarianism is BS; some races have fared better than others, overall; some races have no First World nations.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Husbands shouldn’t wash dishes; fathers shouldn’t change diapers. #womenswork
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

TV sports are weird; why identify with others’ achievements / failures, people who aren’t family or close friends?
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

It’s not unmanly to use emoticons, and I don’t give a hoot if all disagree with me – which is manly, itself. 🙂
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Grits are boring and blech; southroners normally love good food, but err in liking grits; they suck ass. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Women should look like women, and not little girls, in terms of follicle count in a particular place.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Newborn babies are pretty ugly, frankly.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

If you catch your wife cheating on you, the law should look the other way if… something happens to her or them. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

It would have been better for Canada today had Britain deported those in New France after conquering it in 1759. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

If we can’t store nuclear waste truly safely underground (as some claim), we should consider firing it into the sun. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We should not sing winter songs like ‘Frosty’, ‘Jingle Bells’ before Christmas, but instead in January, February, March. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A woman should never slap her husband, for any reason, period. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

People who kill themselves, whether in normal suicide or terrorism, aren’t ‘cowards’, whatever else they may be. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Cold breakfast cereal is awful; absolute worst way to start one’s morning. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Cauliflower is so boringly bland, every culture that eats it deliberately drowns it in sauces / other flavours. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Nelson Mandela was a violent, communist terrorist; we shouldn’t be mourning his passing, not warranted.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

McDonald’s Filet-of-Fish is underrated; it’s actually quite an enjoyable sandwich.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Couples shouldn’t share all details of their past with each other, just the true need-to-know essentials. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Slavery is not explicitly condemned in Scripture; as such, it can’t absolutely be said to be wrong, per se.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman was a fun TV show.

    My biggest unpopular opinion: I can’t find anything wrong with Ayn Rand.
    My second most unpopular opinion: I can’t find anything wrong with Ludwig Von Mises.
    My third most unpopular opinion: Dr. Robert Atkins was right about the human diet/metabolism.

    I protest: Atkins is popular! Well, it was a popular diet for a while, at least; I don’t know if it still is; I don’t see Subway rating their subs / wraps’ Atkins’ ratings any more, for instance, like they used to.

    The ‘paleo’ diet is what seems to be the biggest dietary trend, these days.

    To me, Atkins, South Beach, and paleo all seem to be about the same thing: more protein, more good carbs, less bad carbs, more good cholesterol, less bad cholesterol, etc.

    I’d say that’s a character flaw, not an opinion.

    On the point about Atkins. In a room full of mixed company I can get away with Primal but not Atkins (unless, of course, there are ‘animal people’ present, then neither). What happened was that fat people ‘did Atkins but gained it all back’ (?!) and reasonably fit people and athletes did Primal and have 6 pack abs to show for it. But there is no essential difference between the two. And since the fit crowd doesn’t want to be associated with the fat group they deny the similarity. So the fat people are still fat (because they went back to junk food) and say Atkins was a fraud, the fit crowd admires their abs and says Atkins is yet another failure route for fat slobs (although Primal and Atkins are the same) and my opinion is unpopular with both because it points this out.
