Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What are some things you find overrated but other people LOVE and can't believe you don't? Can be Mormon related or not.

For example, I quite enjoy telling people that I don't really like fry sauce, Princess Bride, or In N Out.

How about y'all?

Dear WB,

March Madness, Pirates of the Caribbean (the movies in particular but the Disneyland ride too), about half of the Marvel movies, and the book Ready Player One which is just the worst, laziest, shallowest book ever. There is not time enough in a day to talk about what a poorly thought out world this happens in, what an unpleasant, oblivious hero it has, and the relentless and unforgivable way it uses nostalgia for 80's geek culture to fill in things like "plot," "rising actions" and "characters."

- Rating Pending (who could talk for hooooours about how and why he hated Ready Player One. Hit him up sometime.)

A:

Dear you,

Cheese. I hated cheese growing up and said I was allergic just so I would have an excuse to not eat it instead of getting "You're kidding, right? really?" again and again. Now my eyelids swell up and I get a migraine when I eat any dairy product other than butter, so I don't have to lie anymore.

Dear Dorfl,

In no particular order:

  • Nutella
  • Avocados
  • Krispy Kreme donuts
  • Mexican Food
  • Thai Food
  • Basically any "popular" food

On that food-related note, I have never in my nearly 30 years eaten McDonalds, and that is my favorite "I have never" fun-fact about me.

Hello Kitty,

I don't understand how there is anyone that likes The Big Bang Theory.

A:

Dear reader,

Cake, candy, and basically anything made out of sugar.

Dear Bild Werry,

Bacon. 

There, I said it.

Cheers,

A:

Dear WB,

I really can't figure out what makes Pentatonix different from or more awesome than other a Capella groups.

I sure hope this helps.  Please don't hate me.

Dear Cthulu,

I do not like How I Met Your Mother. Sorry, Barney.

I admit I didn't read The Name of the Wind in its entirety, but the chapters I did read didn't seem all that impressive.

Dear friend,

Fruit. Yeah, I said it.

Peace,

Dear El-ahrairah,

I am truly hurt.

A:

Dear El,

I think I just died a little inside. 

-Soulful

Dear Human,

Disneyland. It's cool, but I just don't get the hype.

Sincerely,
The Soulful Ginger

Dear Doctor,

Scott Sterling. The volleyball sketch showed up on my tumblr dash from an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. blog I follow, and I have no clue why it has so many notes.

Dear Wild Thornberry,

Dear Wild Berry,

There are a lot:

  1. Studio C
  2. Taylor Swift
  3. Superhero movies (literally all of them)
  4. Nutella
  5. Any television series
  6. Fry Sauce
  7. Mitt Romney's political campaign

I'll leave the list at seven because it's a lucky number, but I can assure you there are a lot of other things that could join the list.
