So the author just wants to be a fat, uneducated slob who stares at reality tv all day. Got it.

Welcome to America.
 
2014-07-13 08:48:06 AM  
I'm sorry if I like what the author doesn't like. There's nothing like getting lost in a good book, raw oysters are one of my favorite foods on the planet, and a shot of booze is glorious.

Oh, and Christmas is the best and most festive holiday. NO ONE DENIES THIS.
 
2014-07-13 09:04:44 AM  
So the only enjoyable activity is drinking alone in the bathroom?
 
2014-07-13 09:07:51 AM  
tl;dr version: Life.
 
2014-07-13 09:15:48 AM  
I like art, travelling (alone), reading, and serious TV.  The rest I've never even pretended to like.
 
2014-07-13 09:26:09 AM  
Good thing I have no reason to pretend I liked that worthless article.

Just like the majority.
 
2014-07-13 09:33:12 AM  
I don't not like most of those things, it's being forced to do them on someone else's schedule that I hate.
 
2014-07-13 09:33:57 AM  
Cuddling, really? Your sex life sucks, list writer.

 Hell, most fat, uneducated slobs I know enjoy at least a few of those things.  This article was clearly written by a slug.

So now HuffPo is just trolling. got it.
 
2014-07-13 09:35:16 AM  
I like oysters, long books, cooking, and family reunions.  The rest I agree with, mostly.
 
2014-07-13 09:36:55 AM  
I like peeing in the hot tub.
 
2014-07-13 09:38:03 AM  
The author must be one sad person.

I love long books that are part of a long series.
I love family reunions, even if they are Ms.Capt's family.
I love cooking for friends.
I lllooooooooovvvvvvveeeeeeee Christmas !

Don't we all?
 
2014-07-13 09:39:10 AM  
I don't like or pretend to like most of those things.  In fact, I hate some of them, especially Xmas and being around other people's kids.

I do prefer something serious to reality TV and eating oysters.  Traveling is okay if there's a good reason for it.

I'll pretend to lie working in groups if it will make my boss thing I'm a "team player".

Bullshiat. Halloween, baby!
 
2014-07-13 09:39:13 AM  
Good grief, what kind of miserable piece of sh*t wrote that list?
 
2014-07-13 09:39:13 AM  
I read long books. I completely avoid reality tv. I don't claim to enjoy anything else on the list.
 
2014-07-13 09:39:18 AM  
I like wiping until there's blood.

my thoughts exactly. my favorite website, trollbait...

/dammit...they got me....
 
2014-07-13 09:39:37 AM  
That's a fine list of things five year old children don't like.
 
2014-07-13 09:39:52 AM  
I don't like anything or anyone that's not me.

Wow. I do feel better.
 
2014-07-13 09:40:55 AM  
I like all of you. Really

I love to cook, and reading books.  I hate your kids.  And Christmas.

What's the difference between a hipster-intellectual and a real intellectual?

A hipster pretending to be an intellectual sits on the floor and drinks his coffee black when there are chairs in the room and there are cream and sugar available for the coffee.

A real intellectual can listen to The William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.  http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=c7O91GDWGPU

balisane: Cuddling, really? Your sex life sucks, list writer.


Pretty much every thing on that list sucks and hell give me a pitcher of beer and bring out those oystrers on the half shell and the extra horseradish.

Sounds about right.

Watching reality TV - Punishment
Watching Cosmos - Awesome
 
2014-07-13 09:50:03 AM  
I like almost all of those things;  though "other people's kids" is usually left to a bare minimum.  However, when I've had my fill I can leave.


/Now, "other people talking about their kids non stop?"  Don't like that one at all.
 
2014-07-13 09:50:30 AM  
No... I don't pretend to like things I don't like, because I'm not insecure.
 
2014-07-13 09:51:29 AM  
Author is lazy and anti-social.

why do you want me to ruin my coffee?!

I'm glad you like raw oysters. I used to eat them, but for me they were like eating snot with a lump in it.
Not CSB: the worst case of food poisoning I ever had came from eating raw oysters. I was in my thirties at the time. If I had been older I probably wouldn't have survived it.
 
2014-07-13 09:52:41 AM  
I love cooking for people, as long as someone else do the dishes.
I enjoy travelling, I usually have more fun getting to places than being there.
Reality TV can suck my dingus.
 
2014-07-13 09:53:08 AM  
I'm pretending to like the Huffington Post.

Not working so far.

A real intellectual might also know that there is more to the William Tell overture than the finale.

If it wasn't for the Lone Ranger no one would have ever heard of the William Tell Overture.

And come on, everyone loves smoking a joint and going to a family gathering - think about how you look forward to Thanksgiving.

Bah humbug!

I prefer Halloween, personally, unless you mix Halloween with Christmas, then I might like it.

HuffPo articles don't load for me because of all of the spamware. Was it just 2 1/3 of letrole's "Ten Things" list?

/if i like something, it's because i like it.  if i don't like something, i will say so.  frequently and loudly.

MatrixOutsider: Author is lazy and anti-social.


It's worse than that.   I'm lazy and anti-social, and even I like some of those things.
