It’s bizarre to think that if you’re, hypothetically speaking, forced to do something for all eternity, you’d wager it would be something that is also eternally painful or dull or, simply put, anything but pleasant. Well, eating is one thing we’re “doomed” to do for all eternity and so far most of us quite like it.

So much, in fact, that some even form very strong opinions about food, cuisine, and everything in between. And there’s been an AskReddit post about it, with thousands of people sharing their culinary hills they’d die on.

Bored Panda has collected some of the best opinions from the now-viral post, which currently clocks in at nearly 27,000 upvotes, 29,000 comments and 60 Reddit awards. Scroll down to check them out, and while you’re at it, vote on the ones you like and comment your strong opinions in the comment section below!

And don't bother the cook under the videos with questions like " I want to do the beef with pumpkin and carrots! Can i use pork instead of beef and put peppers and tomatoes instead of pumpkin and carrots? You can do whatever you want BUT IT'S NOT THE SAME RECIPE!

This should be standard everywhere if the restaurants don't want to deal with lawsuits (edit: there are laws in many countries about this thing so yes the lawsuit is logical 🙄)

It's about some weird copyright laws in some countries. Very annoying, most people probably skip the 'biography' part, so apart from the copyright purpose this was wasted time. Ps. yesterday when looking for lasagne recipe I had to skip over world history of lasagne, a personal history of lasagne and author's philosophical exasperations - on lasagne, of course...
