    The first part, the "everyone's doing it anyway" mentality, isn't fully what i think, I genuinely don't know. But that thought goes through my head when another scandal arises.

    There are 200 varieties of avocados grown here, seven of them in my back yard. Unfortunately, due to the winters, they don't grow where you are. You might have never had a fresh one.

    They're actually rather tasty. But also an acquired taste.

    Bizarro world, nice.

    As for the dinosaurs, you are correct. Only us cigar smoking dinosaurs are still around. Makes for ample parking, though.

    Next UnPopular opinion:
    “acquired taste” is another term for something that is terrible, but popular so people pretend to like it.

    My unpopular opinion:

    - If your punch can knock down your opponent, you don't care about whether your punch is "internal" punch, or external punch.

    - If you can use waist/hip rotation to take your opponent down, you don't care about whether your Dantian is rotate at that moment or not.

    The Lord of the rings and Hobbit trilogies weren't very good and aren't aging well.

    Pete Rose should be in the Hall of Fame.

    I have never been a huge baseball fan but I do know enough to understand that Rose was an exceptional player, certainly HOF caliber. That said, what he did is Not offset by being a great athlete.
    It would set a precedent that does not need to be injected into the sports community at large. I think it could be a watershed event.
    As sad as Rose not being in the hall of fame is, it should never happen. IMHO

    It's pretty hard to bait me into arguments about Martial Arts, but don't start messing with the game of baseball.

    1919 is all I have to say about why Pete Rose (who was my favorite player as a boy) can never be in the baseball Hall of Fame. It is unfortunate, but he crossed the one bright line that can't be crossed in baseball.

    Unless by "empty," you mean a lead-acid battery with no acid in it, this is simply incorrect.

    The mass of an electron is 9.10938356 × 10 −31 kg.

    "Full" batteries weigh just as much as "empty" ones, if by "full" and "empty" you are referring to charge.
