View Full Version : Things you like that you feel you shouldn't...

Stolen idea from the other thread. List things that you like that other people think is weird that you would like it or perhaps something you yourself feel is kind of weird.

I like the smell of cigarettes, partly because I associate it with a relative I'm fond of and partly because smoked for just a little while in college.

I like standing and moving around when I talk, which gets really annoying for some of my friends who prefer sitting. I have a bad tendency of dragging friends to parks to walk around while we speak, or I will make us walk circles around buildings or explore entire neighborhoods while we talk.

I like really girly anime like Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Chobits. I really love romance anime.

I like downer endings. I feel I am the only person who does but I actually like the idea that everything doesn't work out in the end.

I like drinking Cosmopolitans, which most of my "manly" friends tease me for.

I like the Wii

Okay so what about the rest of you?

I haven't done this in awhile since I have been eating better on average, but Saltine Crackers with Cheese Whiz is so damn good, but I know I shouldn't touch the stuff at all.

I tend to get a little too much excitement when I see an update is available for Angry Birds. I also 100% completed Plants Vs. Zombies when I was unemployed a couple of years ago. I feel dirty sometimes.

Baseball - This may not seem weird to most of you but being English I'm generally treated like a freak for being into it.
Red Dwarf - It's still treated like a weird, cult show by everyone I know even though it is unbelievably awesome.
JetPack Joyride for the iPhone - It should be a nice way to pass the time on the train... however, I find myself sat in bed at one morning trying to get a jetpack that fires fruit and a mohawk hairstyle for my character.

You might be surprised how many people around here think liking Baseball is weird. Then again, maybe it's just because I'm Canadian and this is the land of Hockey. I think Baseball is pretty awesome though.

Hooray!

I've seen the odd baseball thread but they don't tend to have much activity. The only conversation I have about baseball is with my cat. She agrees that despite the Yankees strong start, they will falter in the post season.

I like listening to Skye Sweetnam. She was a flash in the pan up in Canada about 7-8 years ago, never got popular here in the US. I have both albums she released, and it's this kind of teenage angry girl rock. Totally not the kind of thing you'd expect me to listen to. I sometimes wonder why myself.

She did, but very briefly. I only ever heard of her by seeing a couple music videos on The N when I used to watch Degrassi. She broke through with "Tangled Up in Me", but that's about it.

Nazi memorabilia.

I absolutely love Nazi memorabilia. I have a scarlet beret, and I found a swastika-adorned Reichsadler metal alloy pin to put on it. I think it could be a cheap replica of an authentic badge because of the low quality and malleability of the metal. However, someone told me it was authentic and the poor quality is due to the economy of the time and that it most likely belonged to a very low ranking soldier.

Either way, I love wearing it. I'm also really, really into Nazi fetishism. I'm particularly fond of the concept of a group of two or three Nazi mistresses, in leather, tighter than tight, conducting medical and psychological/physical experiments on males and females with utmost sexual vigor.

I love 36687, despite the fact every anime fan I've met hates it with a fiery passion (usually because of the art style) so I feel lonely at conventions. :(

I actually rather like the art style. I'm just not a fan of it because the story wasn't engrossing to me. I don't dislike it, though.

CARDCAPTORS! A mystic adventure! CARDCAPTORS! A quest for all time!

Cardcaptors is amazing. No shame in liking that show. Same goes for cocktails of any kind. It flummoxes me that anybody could dislike cocktails. June Bugs and Zombies are my favourite! Yum!

Are you me? :eek:

Although, I don't think that liking microwaveable bacon is anything to be ashamed of. :colbert:

Who the smurf doesn't like Vanilla Coke? You should give them goofy looks for not respecting the divinity of the greatest soft drink of all time [citation needed]. Moreover, is it even in stores anymore? My friends and I have been searching for it like it's the Holy Grail.

Vanilla Coke is everywhere! They took Cherry Coke off shelves her very quick after its release but I've made do.

There's Cherry Coke aplenty in the UK. Little Vanilla Coke, though. But of course, people who like Vanilla Coke also like sniffing their own breath after they vomit, so it's no big deal.

No one should be ashamed of liking vanilla coke. It's god's greatest gift to man.


I like the smell of cigarettes, partly because I associate it with a relative I'm fond of and partly because smoked for just a little while in college.

This. Also The Matrix and bellbottom jeans.

Vanilla Coke is decent. I like to drink it on occasion.

The Waffle House has syrup you can add to drinks of you ask. Vanilla, chocolate, and cherry where I live. So I was having vanilla Coke before they actually started selling it.

Speaking of things I like that I probably shouldn't. Chocolate Coke and Waffle House.

Meant to comment on the Vanilla Coke thing before. I am not a big fan of putting other flavors in my soft drinks. I really don't like Cherry Coke, for example. Vanilla Coke I am iffy about. It's very strange because my taste buds react to it like Mountain Dew. Meaning that there is basically a 50/50 chance of it tasting great or it tasting terrible.

What's even stranger is when I had a dream that Bill Cosby started to advertise the Vanilla Coke like he did the New Coke, but it was tied into The Dark Knight Rises somehow. Then a couple of days later I come across this: (spoiler for size)
