Default I hate everything about this, except...

I love the smell of dried tobacco. I will not smoke/chew/ingest it in any form but I like the smell.

Any of you have a similar issue?

Give me a pumpkin and I'll spit in your eye

Give me something flavored like pumpkin and I'll eat for the rest of my life.

Cigarettes smell amazing for about the first half second when they start to burn.

There are so many movies that have brilliant aesthetics, music, and visual design, but their plot, characters, or writing are unappealing.

Also what teg said.

What if I gave you pumpkin-flavored pumpkin?

Also, do you hate ALL pumpkins? Would you spit out the noble kabocha, glazed and grilled to perfection?

I can't stand chickpeas, but never skip me for hummus.

I have always loved the smell of both cigarettes and coffee, but I don't partake of either.

I don't ever want to watch horror movies but I love reading the plot synopses on Wikipedia.

Put me down for enjoying the smell of cigarettes. I had a downstairs neighbor for a year who smoked and that was nice for me, not so much for her lungs.

I guess I also feel this way about a lot of rogue-likes. Or replace "read about" with "watch someone else play", if you prefer.

Same for me with coffee and tobacco, love the smell, hate everything else.

I love reading Dwarf Fortress playthroughs but I'd never play it.

I don't drink coffee either but I hate the smell so I'm the odd one out lol.

As for the prompt, I'm blanking, but I'll come back.

Dried tobacco leaves smell great, actual cigarette smoke is horrible for me, but cigar or pipe smoke sometimes smells nice. Zero desire to actually smoke any of 'em.

I like both the smell and the flavor of coffee, but not what caffeine does to me these days.

I love the smell of gasoline while I'm pumping gas but I would never drink it.

(This is probably because "pumpkin flavored" usually means something like "flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves," rather than "tastes like a pumpkin.")

Name any ten of the worst traits of American culture, then pick any ten minutes of one of the five Michael Bay Transformers films, and you could probably point at five traits at once.

Knowing this, and hating it, I would still gladly watch any of them at a moment's notice.
