The Overrated Thread


#1

The thing (or things) that everyone else loves that you just can’t stand.

Coffee.

It’s ridiculously expensive bitter bean water. Even if it’s “single origin”. Then, it’s single origin ridiculously expensive bitter bean water.

Or it comes in pods, which means it’s even more expensive sickly sweet bean water. Oh and the pods are terrible for the environment. And the cups too.

And there’s child slavery involved in harvesting the beans. But you know, whatever.

Oh, and it’s terrible for your health.

But sure, go to your local cafe three times a day and grab a $6 cup of happiness, and then make sure you carry that cup around like some sort of trophy.

Alright I’m done.
Your turn.

Craft beers. Yeah, there’s some good ones, but there’s also a lot of rubbish ones, and many are pumped full of godknowswhat so you end up bloated and with a hangover. Some are OK for two or three, but I haven’t found too many of 'em you can really have a decent session on.

Beer culture has become as big a wankfest as that for wine.

Flame away, you girl’s-bike-riding, sleeve-tattooed, beardy bastards…

Oh 100% agree.

“I can taste cloves and butterscotch, and vine leaves and bulls1t”

Really? I taste red wine.

Another good one.

If I took a bottle of Carlton Draught and replaced the label with ‘The SMJ Micro-Nano Barkley Street Brewery’ then half my mates would be buying it for 17 a bottle and exclaiming about how refreshing and complex it is
