We are all aware of so-called "mainstream opinions". A "mainstream opinion" would be something, or someway that the majority of people think or feel about something. Like how many people love summer, or enjoy the taste of chocolate. "Mainstream opinons" are not what interest me, I want to know about your out of favour opinions. For example, my opinions that I think the majority of people would disagree with are:

- Coffee is disgusting
- Hot weather is not very enjoyable
- Sports are a waste of time and effort
- Chihuahuas are cute, not awkward
- Facebook is an abomination to the Human Race
- Facial hair is repulsive
- Angelina Jolie is ugly
- Halloween is more fun than Christmas
- Just because you are related, doesn't mean you have to forgive eachother's mistakes.
- Murderers should be sentenced to death, regardless
- Peanut butter and chocolate tastes better then caramel and chocolate

Those are my quirky opinions, tell me yours.

Hate to tell you ... but some of your opinions might be somewhat mainstream! :lol:

Agree;
*Hot weather sucks (hence why I live in the mountains).
*Peanut butter + chocolate is pure awesomeness.
*Capital punishment for murder.

My own;
*Capital punishment for a person who kills someone while driving drunk.
*People who get injured due to their own stupidity should not be able to sue the property owner or a manufacturer and win millions of $ when it is their own fault!
*A gas grill can cook food just as tasty as a messy and inconvenient charcoal grill.
*Pikachus taste great as long as you remove the electricity glands in their cheeks. (Marinating in a nice red-wine, oil and garlic for a few hours helps a lot too.)
*The police can NOT solve a major crime in 1 hour or less ... quit watching CSI and thinking it is real!
*Lady Gaga is an idiot. (Okay ... this one might actually be the majority opinion.)
*It is my constitutional right (in the U.S.A.) to own and carry a firearm. I will excercise that right.
*It is also my constitutional right to have the freedom to say what I want ... BUT! We also have the responsibility to control our speech when it needlessly injures others!
*Techno is good music (Infected Mushrom is great - Underworld one of my most favorite bands).

Eh, I could go on and on and on ... well, you get the idea.

That reminds me of when that one person (don't know who) who got some coffee from McDonalds, then accidently spilled it all over them, so they sued McDonalds for making the coffee too hot, AND GUESS WHO WON???? :roll:

Some of my opinions:
- Life in jail > Capital Punishment
- There's punishments worse than death
- No war drafts- drafting people into war just means sending them off to die or be pernamently scared for life
- Even if you live in America, you don't really have '100% freedom'. Like you can't say WHATEVER you want, or you can't choose to skip a year from school (which I really would like to do)

Some that aren't about politics:
- I usually like internet memes
- Rock and Metal and especially Progressive music > Pop and Rap music (pop and rap music always seems like they have the same beat and rhythm, as well as repetitive lyrics)
- People who dress and do weird things just to be 'cool and popular' are annoying

Might add some more later

My controversial opinion on the draft is that women should have to sign up as well; they fought and won to be able to join the military. consequently, now that they can do the job and it's socially acceptable, they should have to join the draft as well. We were discussing this on the chats, and apparently there are some countries that have women drafts. As far as the draft goes, some wars need to be fought; WWII, for instance (although we just pretty much did nothing, as far as the USA goes), Hitler really needed his ass kicked. And a draft hasn't happened for a long time. I don't think we'll have to worry about that for a while.

And if I got drafted, I would gladly go, considering that military service runs heavily in my family.

& I am 1 of them...

That being said, I don't keep up with general opinion too well but I will see what I can do...

1. Myspace is dead
2. No 1 gender can exist without the other
3. Peanut Butter + Chocolate = 1 of the best combinations ever conceived
4. Fudge & Chocolate are not exactly the same thing
5. Getting drunk & getting stoned hold the same purpose with equally drastic consequences from time to time
6. Being family doesn't excuse anything anymore in reality
7. Friends aren't what they used to be
8. Marriage = Full Time Job + Interest
9. Guns don't kill people, people do
10. Death is not a true form of punishment, the process of dying is

That's all I have right now...

These are some interesting opinions, and for the most part I agree with the majority of them.

Anyway, here are some more that I thought of:

1. Rapists and child molesters should be sentenced to death. Killing someone is one thing, but putting them through a lifetime of emotional scaring is far worse.
2. Womens rights have decreased in the past decade or so (or atleast that is how it feels to me). I would give the likes of pop culture the credit for this.
3. Geishas are not prostitutes. This is a commonly held belief. In WWII Japanese prostitutes would tell American soldiers that they were Geishas, because it sounded a lot more classy then calling themselves a prostitue did. Geishas are actually entertainers, like singers and dancers. This isn't really opinion but w/e.
4. Auto-tune is one of the worst human creations ever. Some would say this is a commanly held opinion, but if it was Auto-tune wouldn't still be so widely used would it?
5. Fuzzy toe socks sound uncomfortable to me.
6. Star Wars is not as great as a lot of people say it is. Don't get me wrong, it is a very good series. I just feel there is better.
7. Canada is not much colder then the United States. Where I live is actually much warmer in the winter months then most states are.
8. Avatar is not a fabulous movie. It is good, just not amazing.
9. Plastic surgery makes you look less attractive. On second thought, a lot of people probably agree with this.

Yeah some of them may have been. Just not with the people I often talk too :P

I have some more now after the initial overwhelming receded...

Religion is a tool used to keep people under control
Atheism is a religion, it just is
Humans will never truly under 1 another like they want you to believe
College graduation will be a requirement to make it in society within the next 5 years
The USA is the best & worst place to live in the world combined
Ice Cream is not Junk food
Jam > Jelly
The Pokemon meta will never be fully repaired to it's former glory if you will
Most woman who want equality so much don't really understand what that means for them
Drunks are immoral
Deities & Gods are not all knowing
No one should be completely trusted
Fiction has better resolution then reality
Popularity is a fictional concept made to make some people feel good about themselves
Fan boys & fan girls are fictional characters
Anything with a worshiping fan base is overrated to say the least
