Title: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: daltysmilth on August 07, 2007, 05:41:16 PM
Since that's what so many of our threads degenerate into anyway, I thought we should have a thread devoted to goofy debates about issues that no sane person would want to argue about, like in that one episode of MST, where Crow and Servo have a political debate about condiments, I believe.  In any case, let's start with that: condiments?  Which is better on a hot dog: ketchup or mustard? 
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread

If I have to choose: Ketchup. It's the duller condiment, but you can use it on more stuff. Also, red looks healthier than yellow.

Pickle Relish and Coleslaw;  Ketchup and Mustard are relics of a bygone paradigm.

Look, I'll give in to the possibility of Barbeque Sauce, but relish? BBQ Sauce can be put on meat, in sandwiches, even in stir fry and soup. But relish? Don't make me laugh.
Ketchup is the future.

All of this squabbling and bitter mud slinging is distracting us from what's important: spices.
Condiments are just for touching up food after it's done. If you need to use condiments, you didn't use the right spices the first time around.

Spices, my friends, are key. They are the first and last word in flavor.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread

Oh, don't get me started on "spices".  I know this guy who uses every combination of spices he can think of on his pork ribs, and they all taste horrible.  Some Maul's is what you need.

Caramel Popcorn Vs Cheddar Popcorn? (Or popped corn for our educated TripeHound.)

Well, cheddar tastes good, and caramel pretty much sucks without chocolate, so I have to land on the side of cheddar. Hooray for cheese!

Also, the only food I put ketchup on is scrambled eggs. Otherwise, I have no use for ketchup, at least not for eating.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: Junkyard on August 08, 2007, 06:37:04 AM
Wait, cheese or caramel popcorn? That's not a debate. Everyone knows the tangy flavor of cheeze powdered popcorn beats the sticky yet dry taste of caramel on ANYTHING.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread

On the other hand, cheddar popcorn leves that orangey-yellow dust all over everything, whereas caramel corn is relatively non-messy. I'M TORN!

While I concede that artaficial flavors are a triumph of science, it's a democratic science. What people want in a flavor, they get. But if people only ever get what they want, they are soon empty of anything true. They only hear what was made for them, see what they were meant to see, and taste only what they have chosen to taste. Real fruit flavor stands defiant as delicious delicasies that no one voted on, that we've only had the smallest bit of control over!
Do not let man forget about real fruit flavor!

I'm going to use this discussion as a platform for my off-topic rant.

Quoth the "good" people of Pepperidge Farm:

"I love fishes 'cuz they're so delicious."

I'm sorry, but making it rhyme does not make it good GRAMMAR, Pepperidge Farms. The plural of fish is not fishes, nor should it BE fishes, nor should you propogate that myth just so that you can have a catchy jingle. I submit that your jingle should be changed to, "I love fish because they're so Delish!"

Pepperidge Farms: Remember THAT!

Rainbow Goldfish should go the way off the much maligned green Heinz ketchup and Crystal Pepsi. They are an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. Suffer not Rainbow Goldfish to live.

The flavor-blasted Goldfish are tasty, but they negate what I love about Goldfish in the first place - no cheesy orange dust on my hand. Of course, I usually just pour them directly from the bag into my mouth...

Regarding the "delicious fishes" debate, perhaps there are multiple species of fishes in each bag, making the plural appropriate.

NO! Sour candy hasn't had any real legislative or executive power since 1988. The sour candy sympathizers and their highly funded lobbyists would have us living in the past, sending our children to "sour schools", and taxing dark chocolate to unconscionable  levels in order to fund their research for ever souring flavors.
We must break free of the immature, artificial world of the sour candy. The citric acid of yesteryear has burned the tastebuds of so many that they can't taste anything at all anymore. People the candy that will build us a bridge to the future is salty candies. Yes. The combination of sweet and salty is the flavor that will invigorate the downtrodden and fuel the young.

You know, I'm sick of people blaming sour candy for society's ills.  Sure, sour candy has caused its share of problems in the past, but doesn't it deserve another chance to show that it can be the kind of candy that people can love again?  Sour candy is severely misunderstood, and underappreciated.  I don't hear stories about people gaining significant amounts of weight as a result of having a lemon drop every now and again.  Do you?

Ketchup on popcorn? Good Glod man, what is what wrong with you? And here I was thinking you a dignified English gentleman...

I hate popcorn at the movies. That's right - hate it. Not only has movie popcorn been sitting under heat lamps all day, or week, or God only knows how long, but that burnt smell lingers everywhere. Plus, it's dry and flavorless - unless its covered in the vaguely buttery high viscosity lubricant that makes you feel so filthy you need that pocketful of moist towelettes you swiped from the Buffalo wing place - and the crunchy chewing noises in my head distract from the film. What you want is smuggle candy. A nice big box of Raisinets or Mike & Ike or whatever your preference. Luckily, the Target around the corner has big movie-sized boxes in a multitude of varieties at prices that won't make baby Jesus cry.

So, at the movies - soda (or pop or tonic or whatever you weirdos call carbonated soft drinks...) or blue Icee?

Ketchup on popcorn? Good Glod man, what is what wrong with you?

My wife says much the same. I don't know it's probably because it triggers simmilar tastebuds as chip butties do.

Oranges, Apples, Nectarines, and all else aside, I think this has all been to avoid the bigger issue-
Star Wars or Star Trek?

Now, this isn't an issue for most people, but there is a large and powerful group of deviants within our society who would argue against this basic truth- Star Trek is superior to Star Wars.
In Star Wars, aliens look different but act the same. In Star Trek, aliens may look the same, but they ACT LIKE ALIENS.
Star Wars is basically a fairy tale in space, while Star Trek at least attempts Hard Sci Fi.
The Star Trek prequels sucked, but some parts were arguably okay, while the Star Wars prequels sucked unquestionably.
Star Wars- Two annoying robots. Star Trek- One robot who was occasionally annoying, but generally likable.
Star Wars- If they add any more chapters while Lucas is still alive, they will suck on toast. Star Trek- If they add any more chapters, there's at least some hope of them being good.

And I'm not actually a real fan of either.

Star Wars is the seedy, complex infrastructure to Star Trek's gleaming, shiny, pompous, arrogant culture of "let's all dance around and be friends and not fight with anybody".  Sure, the Star Trek universe has peace, but rarely do we see what that peace costs.  Star Wars, at its best, shows the true price of freedom:  eternal vigilance.  Plus tax.

I have to agree with Your Grace on this one since I live in Nebraska:

Nebraska City is official home of the national tree-planting holiday, Arbor Day. This three day event is celebrated throughout the community. On Friday, a program to entertain and educate school-aged children is hosted at Arbor Lodge; Saturday includes a 5K run/walk in the morning and a main street parade in the afternoon. Other weekend activities include an outdoor Southeast Nebraska Community Band concert, environmental games, and a variety of festival foods. The event includes demonstrations, education and sales. It is held annually on the last weekend in April.

I don't know but I'll bet Kwanzaa is celebrated less than either of those. That's because its not a traditional holiday from anywhere in Africa. It was invented by a black American in the late 60s. All my life I've Kwanzaa have litte blurbs on the news in December and it seem elementary schools are still having kids eke out a couple of Kwanzaa-based art projects every year. But I don[t know of anyone that celebrates it anywhere.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: Junkyard on September 03, 2007, 04:00:47 PM
Most of the black people I know are either indifferent or slightly embarrased by Kwanzaa.
"Merry Anniversery of the Birth of One of the Most Important Figures in History, Who Many Believe Died for Our Sins Day!"
"Happy Commemoration of a Jewish Victory that Stands Central to Their Identity Day!"
"Happy Earth Made It Around the Sun Again Without Blowing Up Day!"
"Happy I'm Black Day!"

I quite like Kwanzaa in theory, Humans are great at picking arbitrary things to celebrate (look up exactly what Cinco de Mayo celebrates for another example) but it could have done with a bit more work before being released to the public let's say.

I mean having a number of days that celebrate specific symbolic/idealistic qualities - good, the actually days - not as inspiring as perhaps they should be:

By the way,

SOME say the world will end in fire, 
Some say in ice. 
From what I’ve tasted of desire 
I hold with those who favor fire. 
But if it had to perish twice,         
I think I know enough of hate 
To know that for destruction ice 
Is also great 
And would suffice.

I'm not so wishy washy as Mr. Frost here, so I have to say that fire is the way to go.

I think carnal exhaustion would be the most preferable way for the human race to go wearily into that good night.

Well, duh, but if you're only given the two choices, you'd go with fire, yes?
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread

Fire means warmth and less clothing or at least thinner clothing, sure let's go with fire.

I like how your idea of a fiery Armageddon is basically a Florida Summer.

...Course, when you live in England, I suppose any warm sunny day is welcome, even if it's a result of the sun being 3 times it's normal size in the sky.

I'm gonna have to go with Ice, because at a certain point, when hypothermia sets in, we'll at least hallucinate that we're getting warm again and fall asleep and die peacefully.

Gentlemen. We're all missing the REAL issue here:

Pirates or ninjas?

(Ninjas win, of course)
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: daltysmilth on September 08, 2007, 02:58:43 PM
I'm also going to have to side with the ninjas on this one.  Ninjas can take down an entire city without making a sound.  Pirates are loud and obnoxious.  Now, on the other hand, if the pirates team up with the robots, then it's anyone's fight.

Are the pirates drunk?  They have more hit points when drunk.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: mrbasehart on September 09, 2007, 06:37:24 AM
I dunno... Ninjas en masse are pretty much fodder for the more trained/attractive leading man ninja.  Pirates usually don't go like that -- they certainly don't surround said leading man and only attack him one at a time.

I'll throw my support behind Pirates, they dress better than Ninjas

Tripe brings up a good point- it's not all about who would win in a fight.
Ninjas spend all their lives training, and sneaking, and killing. They're really good at it, but they all die virgins in so many ways.
Pirates have fun. Too much fun, in fact. They leave memories and offspring at every port. They are free, and they live.

Pirates.

Now, between Japanese Horror Movies and Japanese Monster Movies, which are the superior imports?

I'm sure you can guess my vote. If you can't, look a couple inches to the left and try again.

Even Hondas?

I espicially hate the little bastard kids who bolt giant wings on the backs of their Civics and stick those stupid irritating fart cannon exhausts on and think they are Vin Deisel trying to race me.  People should be given IQ tests to drive.

The Japanese probably import Hyundais, so that counts.

Okay, let's change things up:  Which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game was better?  TMNT III: Turtles In Time, or TMNT: The Hyperstone Heist?
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: Pak-Man on September 23, 2007, 12:51:44 AM
Hyperstone Heist was Turtles in Time without some levels and with a couple extras added in. You got to fight Tatsu, but it still wasn't quite as cool as Turtles in Time. :^)
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: Sideswipe on September 23, 2007, 10:29:11 AM
Yeah, Turtles in Time is the pinnacle of the Ninja Turtles games.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: daltysmilth on September 23, 2007, 03:16:00 PM
Yeah, but I'm a diehard Sega Genesis supporter, so I'm going to have to go with Hyperstone Heist.
Title: Re: The Meaningless Debate Thread
Post by: RoninFox on September 23, 2007, 04:08:56 PM
Of the two, I only played Turtles in Time, and it never held the place in my heart that the first TMNT game in arcades did, or even the ridiculously difficult first NES game complete with defusing all the dam bombs.
