What's something you like that you're sure almost anyone else would enjoy if they gave it a chance?

Asked by ubersiren (15031 points ) September 14th, 2009

Movie, book, food, band, song, game, sport, comedian, TV show, sex positions, career choice, etc. Anything!

Do you like something that you know someone would like if they just tried it? Obviously, not everyone will like it, but a good majority, perhaps.

Sex and the City. I find that a lot of people who have never seen the show have all these opinions or assumptions about it that are absolutely not true (that only women can relate to it, it’s all about purses and shoes, it only covers issues that women have, etc.) I’ve actually had the privilege of changing those exact opinions of several people in my life, including my current boyfriend. I feel that if people actually sat down and watched a few episodes, their opinions would change drastically, even if they still didn’t particularly like it.

@Frankie people believe that about the show because that’s all the show’s commercials make it out to be. If it’s more than that, it’s a fault of the show’s producers to not advertise it properly.

Zen's avatar

Excellent wonderful question which I will bookmark as there might be wonderful ideas and experiences here to unfold as time elapses. Kudos.

My own is thus: Little known author Jerzy Kosinski. Read The Painted Bird, and then Blind Date and the others. He is the brilliant author of Being There, which was made into the famous movie with Peter Selers (remember Chauncey Gardner?).

Lurvoy. (that’s lurve and enjoy).

ubersiren's avatar

Very good answers so far! I have to agree with most of them, and others I’m anxious to try.

Frankie's avatar

@MrItty I agree with you, and it’s unfortunate that what you said is true. But that doesn’t change the fact that people do have those assumptions that are false and that if they actually watched the show they would find that it is quite different from what they thought it was. Which is pretty much what the OP asked.

Zen's avatar

Quebec, and Quebec city, are beautiful. From Montreal the Paris of Canada, to Quebec City which has just celebrated 500 years, you shant be disappointed with a visit there.

@Gundark At least you can say you tried…like I said in my first post, even if people still don’t like it, once they watch it they at least realize it is different from what they had thought it was. At least for the most part. But I don’t know if that was the case for you.

Well, recently I decided I wanted some Jelly (Jello) so I got some Jelly cubes, melted them as instructed but instead of adding water and then waiting for it to set I added Cherryade (fizzy pop, soda, whatever you may call it where you are) and so, not only did it have added flavour it was also fizzy on the tongue for a limited amount of time! What’s not to like?!?!?!

EmpressPixie's avatar

@sdeutsch: I did a tiny bit of it during orientation in the park by school. If you want to come the next time I go (which might not be for a while—yay, midterms!), you are welcome to join me.

@ubersiren: Find someone with an iPhone. Borrow it. Go. The iPhone is probably the single best beginner’s tool for it right now. The app made by the people behind Geocaching.com is really amazing. (But if you plan to do anything more interesting that city caches, a cheapie handheld GPS is still the way to go as they are water resistant or proof usually and this is an issue surprisingly often.

Bob Dylan is a flat out genius. I love Donovan, especially Catch the Wind and Sunshine Superman, but Dylan can capture a life in a song. Yes, his singing has gotten raspier over the years, but Things Have Change works with that! “Tangled Up In Blue” is just as good as any song ever written, ever.

both Donovan and Dylan are pretty good in my mind…plus given they are both dead its unlikely they will ever get into a fight so we wont have to pick sides :)

It’s funny, I was a big fan of the original Trek, but not so much that I was crazy obsessive, going to conventions and crap, I was no purist and actually expected good things from TNG, but I absolutely DETESTED the 2 hour series opener to the point that I could never watch the show again, not sure why, it just rubbed me the wrong way, I thought it was stiff and forced and cliched and it just didn’t hook me, so I never watched another episode. I did however really enjoy DS9.

Arthur Russell.
The Venture Bros.
Dogs.
French toast with sour cream.
In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust. Reading it is one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. It’s so much more…layered…than anything else. It opens up the workings of the human mind and holds every layer of its metaphors up to the light like some incredible prism, and sometimes you can hold all the facets together in your head at once and everything seems so simple and deeply meaningful… All of you, even if you don’t think you have the time to read the whole thing, ought to at least check out the novella within the first volume of the novel, Swann in Love. It follows the whole arc of what it is to fall in and out of love, and gives you a little blueprint for the novel as a whole.

janbb's avatar

@wildpotato You’ve got me convinced – in terms of Proust, not acid. I’ll give it a try one of these summers; it’s been on my list.

Judi's avatar

Doing acid once really messed me up (30 years ago) and I think I am still suffering memory loss today. It also assured that I would get totally paranoid if I ever smoked pot.
At least it forced me to get away from the negative spiral I was in and make something of my life.

wildpotato's avatar

@Judi I’m sorry you had an unfortunate experience. That really sucks. I had one bad trip, and I can absolutely understand why having one your first time would turn you off to the stuff forever.

I’m not going to try to evaluate the positives of the experience versus the risks and legal drawbacks – that’s something people can only do for themselves – but I will say that in my fairly extensive contact with the stuff and in my observations of others’ use, it rarely has such an outcome as Judi describes. My bad trip was due to my own stupidity in over-dosing on stuff I volunteered to be guinea pig for. Don’t do that. But if obtained from a reputable source and used with care, acid can provide an extremely fulfilling experience.

Judi's avatar

Well, I did mushrooms once too with the same result, so why would I ever want to go back there again?

wildpotato's avatar

@Judi Actually, it’s not unusual for people to have a hard time with shrooms. Physically it tends to cause intense nausea for at least a short period of time during onset for nearly all users, and the mental trip can be very hard for some people to control. I wouldn’t say that shrooms is a good answer to the OP’s question. Not to imply that I think you were putting words in my mouth, just clarifying my position. I said acid because it’s a very gentle and beautiful experience if you can be confident in your source, dose and setting.

Judi's avatar

That may be the case, but it is a theory I am unwilling to ever test in my body again.

valdasta's avatar

Done the cid & shrooms; just not profitable for me to be doing that – ever again. Had “good” and bad trips, but I left that whole scene years ago.

@Dilettante That is one of my favorite folk songs!

Dilettante's avatar

@janbb Really! I had no idea they were lyrics from a folksong! I suppose I can find it without too much laborious computer-fiddling; can you tell me the title, more about it?
I “thru-hiked” the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine, years ago…there are “trail registers,” logbook sort of things in the lean-to shelters along the trail; and some hiker ahead of me (I never met him/her) would repeatedly make that entry. In view of the fact that most of the wooden shelters were full of mice, it was quite apropos, meaningful to hikers that would spend the night in them. I rarely slept in shelters—had an adequate tent, preferred more solitude—but whenever I did, there were the mousies, skittering about in the dark, literally inches away, making one feel a bit uncomfortable, hence the little poem was so meaningful, relevant, enjoyable in a sadistic sort of way, to those who read it. But alas, “Revenge is mine, sayeth the Lord.”

janbb's avatar

@Dilettante Actually, it’s not a real folk song. What it is from is a B. Kliban cat cartoon in which a blind cat folksinger is strumming a guitar and singing those words. My brother loved that cartoon. And kudos to you for the through hike. I’ve always, in theory, wanted to do that.

Dilettante's avatar

@janbb Thanks, I’ll look for it; perhaps it’s on UTube. I’m certain it will evoke many fond memories. Re the thru-hike (we always used the “thru” abbr., for some reason), it was a life-changing experience, never to be forgotten. Whenever I encounter someone from one of the states the trail traverses; I start rattling off the names of little mountain towns in that state, in which I stopped to resupply,etc. I often get a delighted response; the listener amazed that I would know it. Although the wilderness experience, a la Jeremiah Johnson (The Robert Redford Film) was superb; the sociological aspect, interacting with the folks along the way, was equally rewarding. Although the adage, “The Ice Cream Man brings the world to your door,” is apropos; the opposite is true as well. The Ice Cream Man learns much.

janbb's avatar

@Dilettante Very cool. One thing, the folksinger is just a graphic cartoon; you probably have to look for a book of Kliban’s work.
