We all claim to dislike certain things while, in actuality, we secretly love them.
“Candy corn is so gross, it’s not even real corn. Bleck!” ….*eats some candy corn after getting home
We’ve all at some point gone into a room, forgotten why we were there and then left again.
We also all love Cool Runnings.
i would go for air and water – esp. good, fresh, well water with no chlorine…yeah. i would go for that over the “joy” of poop.
CLEAN, crisp sheets on your bed & you have been completely hot & sweaty from working outside or ?? & you take a shower and go to bed in your clean sheets – soooo lovely!
sort of related to earlier comment…but better! on a chilly-ish day and you find the sunnier spot/side of the street to walk on & it makes sooo much difference…the sunny side vs. the shady cool side. it’s just the right amount of sunny to make you happy & warm.
hugs. i think that might be it. even if you think you can’t deal with them or something is wrong with you emotionally, i think hugs.
Who doesn’t like finding something they thought they’d lost for good?
i called into work so that i could devote the entire day to this one – it’s just that important to me. i fell asleep around noon, but just before nightfall it hit me – gravity! none of us really know what it is, but we all have an extreme appreciation of it in common. without gravity we’d have dirt (including ant mounds), water (depending on where you live) and maybe even construction debris falling into our noses constantly. if you were looking up (which is the direction you’d be falling) it might not go into your nose, but maybe up your pant leg.. or it might just graze the the bottom of your chin or something, but that would be so aggravating because every time you’d yawn, you’d potentially open the wound again, y’know?
b/c i missed the shout out
As evidenced above, we all share the joys of self awareness and introspection. Without that where would we be? Hmmm. I’ll have to think about that for a while.
pleasent smells. Although we all may not like the smell of the same things there surely is something that each of us likes the smell of.
Actually, I love it when people slip and fall (I’m like America’s Funniest Videos #1 fan)
We all have the ability to change our thoughts and create our experience through our own unique perception.
Have you seen that movie “Waitress” She makes a lot of Pie. And it’s totally cute.
Mon Dieu! A plethora of particulars!
So many things well said.
• love cheetahs – turn them loose on the person(s) doing beatbox. (I once photographed (amateur) a stalking, kill, and feast by cheetahs. One hunted; they all (5) feasted.)
• compressing – use to squeeze white bread into a solid ball. tasted better, but gave regular white bread up when I was 13.
• marmalade – good to say, but what else goes with buttered English muffins!
• LITERATURE!!!! — and, for good and/or bad, we share the news media.
Shared experiences because of a common culture are important for understanding our environment and language. To be top-rated in a foreign language, I was told by the gov’t, one would have to grow up in a country where people spoke the language. (I got the next best)
Lots of cultural references, childhood games with their rules and special vocabularies, old-fashioned phrases heard while talking to people older than yourself etc. are learned that may not be part of a language class. (“get to 1st base?”, e.g.)
Final note: Sears is coming out with a new large edition of its catalog for Nebraska. The Ultra-soft edition. (understand? of course!)
Well, surely I’m not unique in truly appreciating that candy corn is exactly the shape and size as a human nostril. Is it food, or entertainment, or both?
I don’t if that’s going to unite the country, though. I doubt it’s even a start.
Most people I know are fans of when it’s raining pretty hard outside, but you’re inside and are warm and toasty, possibly with some sort of blanket and/or fire.
The details of this are flexible, but most people like the general thing.
Wow, I’m so used to only watching on Friday’s that i keep missing new mid-week episodes so I’m late to this party. Um, everyone likes puppies?? Or hearing children laugh?? Oh, and one more thing. Brigitte, you live in California now. Here is a great recipe for a completely raw (and delicious) apple pie by L.A.’s own Ani Phyo. Recipe is here – http://www.aniphyo.com/2007/11/11/anis-apple-pie-on-abc-nov-13-3pm/ and video showing her make it is here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3L4BDd4BrE.
we are all fans of believing in one thing or another
The thing I have always enjoyed the most, even as a child, is when I do not have bleach in my eyes. Oh and the smell of brand new tennis balls. That’s all.
Melted cheese. I suppose I’d have to add melted cheese, but that’s the last one. No bleach, tennis balls, and melted cheese. And really good books.
Ok, we got the bleachless eyes, the balls, the cheese, the books, live music, and new puppies. The end.
And rain. And coffee. And electronic gadgets. But that’s all.
1. We all like some type of food.
2. We all have a tendency for some type of vice. Therefore, in the beginning of giving into that vice we like that vice. Then by the end when we are trying to make a break from said vice we dislike said vice. But still at some point in all of our lives we like our vice.
3. We all like water.
4. We all like the sun since without the sun we would die.
5. We all like something about TV. Even those who don’t have a TV in their house have at one point, watched something on TV that they liked.
6. We all like the internet.
7. Music. We all like at least one song.
8. Art. We all like at least one piece of art of which music is a subset so 7 and 8 are kind of coupled together.
9. Trees. All of us have seen at least one tree we’ve liked.
10. Other animals. All of us at one point have been interested and have even liked a certain other type of animal which isn’t a human.
11. Astronomy. Whether you are interested in science or not, when we look up to the stars we all like thinking about our place in the universe.
12. Hawaii. Even if we haven’t personally been to Hawaii we all at least like the idea of going to Hawaii.
That’s all I have time for now.
We all have the ability to love and that is something that we have in common with animals too. Overstock.com has the best deal on sheets anywhere. Oh and I love pie.
Thanks for these you crack me up. I’m showing them to my hollywood type friends.
Thanks C.R. Adrock!
You’re right, the particulars that resonate to a large number of people depend on their socio-economic, and as you’ve pointed out, their linguistic backgrounds. Not everybody has a dryer and vampires, including those who pay homage to vampires don’t like sunlight. Of course, I’m just being silly, but hopefully not entirely ridiculous. What I’m suggesting is that there may be something ‘deep’ within each particular that indicates a universal. Take the droning musac in a department store. My friend and I walk in and she expresses her annoyance, but ten minutes later while sizing up a shirt in a mirror, she’s humming along. Part of me is thinking she’s a liar liar, but curiously her pants don’t seem to be on fire. So even though you seem to despise beatboxing, maybe a few toes or toelits are secretly twitching behind your back.
Hi, I just started watching your videos and i love them! You are too cute. One thing we all have in common is that we can all be so different but still be proud (or admit to?) of being an american.
we all hate commericals
we worship the internet
we are fans of the smiley (one face, but it can be used for so many things!)
we frown upon eatting dogs. (atleast i hope so)
we all have cried
we all have parents (if you don’t, then that is really cool)
we hate canada! (jk, we love u our totally boring neighbor)
oo pick me!
We all like gravity just the way it is: Not to strong, not to weak; It holds us to the ground when we need it to, but doesn’t prevent us from walking, or flying in airplanes, or flying kites or watching birds fly.
I was gonna say we all have hands but then I remembered that some people don’t Then I was gonna say we all have a heart, which is good, but then I remembered that I saw a show where a new heart was made out of yoghurt pots so we don’t all have real hearts either After these set backs I think however that I have found the answer. We all like the smell of freshly cut grass! Oh, darn, but the hayfever suffers! This is hard Brigitte.
everyone likes free stuff. No matter what it is as long as it’s free, we love it. Even if we don’t want it we can always sell it on ebay.
okay – i sort of revise my much earlier answer. all are good but i think since it is what we have in common, humanity…which is universal, not just the people here — it might just be hope.
or at least the need for hope…even if you don’t think you feel hopeful.
i think if you don’t have hope, esp. in some extreme and dire situations, you die.
i love alex, because he/she thinks that everyone loves bjork. i know everyone doesn’t love bjork, because i used to think that everyone should love bjork, but the more people i talked to, the more people i found that really did not like bjork at all.
we all like home.
HEY LOOK AT ME!!
Isn’t that something we all have in common? “I’m witty, I’m insightful,I love this or I think that…please read and recognize my uniqueness”.
See, I’m doing it right now, I can’t help myself because i’m just like everyone else
i like pie also… but there are some different ways to prepare them. I preffer the ones with mushed apple instead of big apple pieces. i heard the other day a girl saying “now im proud to say im american”… interesting…
Whoa, late to the party! I think there are some things people are genetically pre-dispositioned to like, because they give (or once gave) you a better chance at survival.
Like, the smell of fertile soil, for example. It’s basically saying, “Hey, plant stuff here and it’ll grow!” which would be important to know in a continuously more agricultural/sedentary people. I think that actually most of our “universal” likes/dislikes come from this sort of “evolutionary advantage” perspective (we like sugary things b/c they give a boost of energy, or 68°-72° weather because our bodies function most effectively there).
But yeah, there’s always going to be someone out there who had a traumatic experience w/ fertile soil, and finds the smell absolutely repellant. Maybe we’re just gonna have to play the numbers game and go w/ the majority here.
How have I never heard of you???
I haven’t read the eighty-something comments above, so of course this could be something already mentioned because it’s just so universally true…
I think we can all agree that everyone likes clean underwear. But my second choice would be fresh breath. Both of these can be liked on yourself or a friend!
Something everybody has in common, I would say that everybody is looking for something!! That might be as deep as looking to be better and do better or finding meaning in a random or fateful world or as simple as looking for the keys you had five minutes ago (check your other hand or your pockets), we as people are all looking for something
To bad the Egyptian mummy exhibition isn’t here anymore… we could all have King Tut in common.
@Jim Hmm… Close, but no Camel.
Thanks! Nice post.
I thought of you tonight while watching Heroes when HRG dude told Elle that everyone loves pie.
