Things I Don't Feel That Strongly About

  1. Coffee: I don't like really strong, bitter coffee, and I don't like watered-down coffee, but I also probably couldn't tell you the difference between coffee from Dunkin' Donuts and beans imported from Switzerland that you ground five minutes before you brewed it. Maybe I haven't been into coffee long enough (5-6 years), but I just can't bring myself to be that passionate about it.
  2. Cars: Safety and fuel efficiency are my primary concerns when it comes to cars. Horsepower, style, make/model (unless it is strongly correlated to my primary criteria), even features don't appeal to me much. Give me a car that gets 30 miles a gallon and will not leave me permanently injured should I have a wreck, and at least a tape deck so that I can plug in my iPod. Entire magazines devoted to custom cars just leave me wide-eyed and slack-jawed.
  3. Mac vs. Windows vs. Linux: Seriously.


There are more, I'm sure, but those were on my mind.

I'm with you on the first two. On the third, I only care insomuch as I've poked enough holes in all three to find the one that I prefer, then make a conscious effort to migrate to that platform.

Not when most of the folks I know are die-hard one way or the other.

Aren't you confusing the strength of one's feelings with the positivity/negativity of their opinion?

I love how the only two people that comment on this happen to be two of the only people I know that hate coffee? lol

So do you hate all coffee, or just black? Cause I'm not a black drinker. I usually have to add cream and or sugar.

all coffee...even fru fru drinks! the only one i could remotely stand was when i was working at cafe baba. i would pump SO MUCH chocolate, a lot of milk, and a dollop of espresso to make a "mocha" but lol it was mainly hot chocolate...

Oh, and I saw you mention a Huntsville Chapter of ImprovEverywhere on Twitter. I ran across this one: (http://improveverywhere.ning.com/group/huntsvilleimprovteam) Is that the same one you're a part of?
