I don't like spicy foods, but if ground pepper just added heat, I'd be able to cope. But no, it changes the actual flavour of the food to something I dislike on a very deep level. I have the same problem with wasabi - I'd rather eat "spicy ___" sushi than anything with even a tiny dab of wasabi on it.

I also love pepper. But 99% of pretty much all food not made by me has way too much salt for my taste.

Yeah, I get you --- I have a similar problem with texture (Less than taste). I have a high problem with cream soups over regular ones due to the texture.

Or yogurt with small fruit pieces (Like strawberry) in it, it makes me gag trying to eat it.

Then remind me not to cook for you, because I always overdo it on the salt.

About the only thing I can think of that I wouldn't put pepper of some variety on is dairy. Well, except cheese. Pepper on ice cream sounds odd. I've had chocolate with chiles and it was really good.

Well, your bread was delicious! Salt is something that you get acclimated to so the more you use the less you taste it and vice versa. I stopped using a salt shaker routinely ages and ages ago and went seriously low-salt about 5 years ago so even a little salt seems really salty to me.

Here's an unpopular opinion (and a pre-emptive first strike now that we are talking about food). Just because one dislikes a particular food, does not mean that is it gross, disgusting, vomit inducing or whatever other hyperbolic term people love to use. People who insist on saying things like that just sound immature and narrow-minded.

I've had chocolate ice cream with chile peppers in it, does that count as pepper ice cream? It doesn't actually strike me as one of the weirdest things you can put in ice cream... there are probably some things you can combine with black pepper that would be really good as a frozen dairy treat.

Really I should just stop adding salt to food. I know it's not healthy. There's just something so satisfying about turning that salt mill, though!

I saw a recipe on foodnetwork for some kind of fruit and pepper sorbet. I think it was mango.

That does sound good. I stand corrected. So yeah, now I'm thinking that you can put pepper on anything. If, you know, you like pepper. Kildread, you should go for it.....

I have the belief that not every joke, mildly amusing or otherwise, that has ever been put on the internet can be successfully put on a t shirt. So yeah not a fan of SnorgTees, one quick look and it was everything I expected, shit zombie jokes, shit bacon jokes, shit science jokes.


I do quite like some of Black milk. I think their Star Wars stuff is awesome.

I don't know what you mean by men though, they don't... do men's clothes.

Yeah, they don't.

I've found out it doesn't prevent men from wearing the stuff

Meggings for all!



What I really don't understand are those drop-crotch pants, though. I find that look extremely confusing.

Mom jeans, high-waisted pants, and suspenders are freaking dapper and need to make a comeback.

I'd like to see more support for kilts. Not in the winter, obviously.

I had to wear one for four years in high school...it wasn't that awesome. (I also kept wondering why an ENGLISH Catholic school had a SCOTTISH tartan. The dress Gordon to be specific)
Also, it was hilarious when a male and very-Celtic schoolmate of mine wore one instead of dress pants. Everyone thought it was awesome, and HE GOT AWAY WITH IT because it was both uniform AND ethnic dress. XD until bitchy-as-fuck vice principal went on her daily NO INDIVIDUALITY ALLOWED, TAKE EVERYTHING OFF rampage (seriously, she'd yell at you for having a single freaking button undone, or being IN THE MIDDLE OF GOING TO YOUR LOCKER to change your shoes in the middle of winter).
