Of those, the chickpea brownies, kind bars, and canned salmon are the nopes. Boba tea is stupid but inoffensive.

Ice cream sandwiches are fucking delicious. Tito's is perfectly cromulent.

Am I the only one who thinks that sriracha is fucking overrated?

Sriracha is fine in context. Better than Tabasco in many contexts. But not Jesus no.

Also the weirdest bit of that list is "Indian food". Here's some specifics, and also a continent of one billion people

Yeah, but based on what you get in not-India, name someone who is going to only like Goan or southern Indian or Northern Indian or Kashmiri cuisine. They might have preferences, but if they like any of it, they'll like all of it barring a few dishes here or there.

ETA: Siracha is way overrated. There are so many other, better hot sauces in the world.

Ecuador's isn't really "hot" but OMG it's the most versatile flavor enhancer I've ever found.

Same, but a list of foodstuffs isn't exactly mockery to me. It's just, "...And?"

Pretty amusing to see people make a big deal out of her being denied entry. Canada won't let people in if they have a DUI. Many countries won't allow entry to convicted felons.

I think it's that they get to be oppressive until the time they have the power to be oppressive.

And, in most of the rhetoric I've seen, until they have been oppressive for the same amount of time they think they've been oppressed. So true equality is minimum 450 years in the future for white people, 2000-10,000 for men and cis and straight people.

They will never get that kind of power. They are a great threat to individuals, but not the system. As soon as Zuck and Jack have to divest their platforms, all social media will make Gab look like a Maoist enclave.

Nah, the everything on the internet will go out of business. AI will figure out how to ID everyone's posts and browsing, making nearly everyone different degrees of unemployable. The only people with jobs will be a few Mormon in their 50s.
