And yes, I immediately distrust anyone who does not like onions. It immediately disqualifies that person from having any serious opinion on food. Onions are a pillar of basically every major cuisine on earth.

The proliferation of shared content and communication tools at work.

If you don't want to store a file on our shared network you could use SharePoint instead. Okay. And I guess you could even use OneDrive for some reason. I've got my account credentials saved for these special cases. Or Confluence. Gotta put stuff up on Confluence. But DropBox? Really? It fits some need that our shared network, SharePoint, Confluence, and OneDrive don't?

And I get you may not want to email me with that thing you need me to know about (actually, I don't get it - but whatever). So Skype me instead, if it makes you happy. But is there any reason to use Slack for work stuff, besides thinking it's kinda cool?

The iron fist of order and conformity needs to be brought down on corporate communications.

Which is why I find it so difficult to find restaurants I enjoy, onions are pretty much everywhere.
Roasting, saucing, blending etc. etc. It doesn't matter how youprepare them, vegetables just taste horrible to me to the point of gagging. I know they are healthy, I know they are good for me, they just generally taste like crap with a very few numbers of exceptions. My taste buds are what they are I guess, I wish I could find a way to like my veggies more.

Onions make me sick, too. The texture kills me.

Onions are the devil. If I use onions I cook the crap out of them so they're so soft and translucent that I can't tell they are in the dish. Or I use onion powder.

I used to hate onions, then I became an adult and realized they are great in most dishes.

The thing that's most irritating about pop county music is that fake twang accent they all put on. Seriously, what is with that?? Like George Canyon's "Ohhh Cayyy-nayduhhh.." The twangy accent is so irritating, and really contributes to all the songs sounding the same to non-country fans.

Well have a listen to Lil Nas X - Old Town Road the best of both worlds.

Come on, guys. If you aren't aware of how good so much country music is, well, then there isn't much that I can do for you.

If your opinion on any music genre is based on what gets played on the radio of course you're going to hate it. Pop-country is absolutely horrible but there's some great stuff out there. Same with great rock, you won't hear it on cjay. I haven't heard a pop song I like in probably 10 years but I'm sure there's something out there
