    Yeah, I think there's some specific allele that causes that if I recall. I love cilantro, and my ex hated it for the same reason you say. Cooking Mexican food sucked as a result.

    Energy drinks are all fucking awful. I'm with you there.

    Well, do energy drinks taste like cough syrup to you?

    Not quite, but they taste like extremely sugary crap with no redeeming qualities at all. For some awful reason, my buddy and I drank like 6 cans of Diet Monster one night when we had to make a long ass drive though. It's good for staying awake!

    I find both amazing. I love white chocolate too.

    I don't know, I tend to see the best in every type of food. I'm discerning within types, but almost every type of food tastes good to me when it's done right for my tastes.

    Red Bull tastes like cough syrup to me. I can't, for the life of me, understand how it got so popular. Monster and AMP, on the other hand, taste rather good.

    So does Bawls.

    Yeah, too me, they taste very similar to cough syrup if it had been sugared and carbonated in an attempt to pass it off as a soda or something.

    Yeah, that's spot on. I could never quite put my finger on what I hate about them, but cough syrup with a ton of sugar and carbonation is exactly how they taste to me.

    I saw this on my facebook, too.

    People need to do research before reposting these mindless memes.

    Papa John's is a Franchise company. If you don't know what a Franchise is, go look it up for the love of god.

    The stores you see with the Papa John's logos? They aren't owned by Papa John's the company. They're owned by small business owners all over the US.

    Most likely, Papa John's won't be reducing anyone's hours, because most of their employees are already full time and already on healthcare with the company. The people who will be reducing the hours, and cutting jobs, are the franchise owners. Because they have to get by, too.

    I suggest you do some more research.

    Papa Johns INTL sells both franchises (and takes 5-7% of their profits) and also operates many of its own stores in a corporate environment. Not every Papa Johns is a franchise.

    I wonder why they taste like that? I had the same reaction to Mountain Dew: Game Fuel. At first I thought it was the caffeine, but I recently accidentally added 150mg of caffeine to about 18 ounces of coke and it didn't taste like that. I was seeing if I could make strawberry Coke and used some packet of Crystal Light, but didn't notice until after I poured it in that it was the energy type. That reminds me, why do companies get to put shit on their packaging like "2.5 servings per packet" when it recommends you add the entire packet to 20 ounces of water and the packet has no way of practically resealing or carrying it around without spilling?

    American dark chocolate is junk (no offense). Russian dark chocolate is simply fantastic.

    I have no idea. I guess really sugary stuff is my one sore spot with food in general. I'm pretty sensitive to things being overly sweet. It's pretty rare I'll drink a beverage with sugar at all, it just really seems to hit my taste buds hard. I like apple cider and that's about it.

    This one gets me HARD. When I used to drink Kool-Aid (the sugar free kind, again with that idiosyncrasy), I had to dilute it like 3:1 out of the jug it was kept in. I don't understand how people drink it straight.

    There's quite a few options I like. I'm pretty biased towards Belgium and German though.

    That's rather odd. Maybe you're also very sensitive to flavors, but you're overly sensitive to sweetness whereas I'm overly sensitive to bitterness? I mean, unless your family made extremely strong Kool-Aid, having to dilute that stuff is extremely odd.

    And for good reason! I enjoy Belgian chocolate as well, although it definitely has a distinctively different taste from Russian chocolate, to the point where you could easily put them down as two different types of candy altogether.

    Nah, even the stuff I make at home now (I think I've been out of my parent's for ~6 years), or Crystal Light is the same for me. All of it just tastes insanely sweet to me. I guess that's odd. It might be a sweetness thing, since I usually don't like non-diet sodas either.

    I don't think I've ever had Russian chocolate. I'm sure there's some shops I could find it at, but I haven't seen it around much. The place I used to go to had a lot of German, Belgian, and French stuff that was quite nice. I think I'm pretty ignorant about types though, they just mostly taste good to me. Not my area of expertise!

    John Schnatter doesn't know when to STFU.

    Another little 1%-er temper tantrum that will end up costing them more in the devalue their shares and lost business than Obamacare does by a long shot.
    Atheist, anti-theist, pro-gun, pro-Constitution, anti-racism, pro-gay rights, anti-war, anti-corporatism.

    Their shares are already down 4.2% in under a week. Ironically much more than they would have had to charge, per pizza, to cover healthcare for their employees.

    Well honestly, what do you expect? They're not exactly going to blame layoffs and reduced hours on their own profit-driven, social-conscience-absent, sociopathic bastardry, are they?
    Knowledge is power, and power corrupts. So study hard and be evil.
