Captain Picard > Captain Kirk

 

and it's not even close!

 

I don't think this is a hot take among Trek fans.

Nirvana was a good band, but incredibly overrated in terms of their music and impact.

A lot of people vastly overrate their favorite gas station/convenience store place. Royal Farms and especially Wawa come to mind.

They're fine and generally better than most gas station stores, but the way a lot of people are fan boys or girls for these places doesn't make sense to me. You can get average subs or good chicken at a lot of places.

You really can't though, especially fried chicken.

 

RoFo fanboy here but their bathrooms are always FILTHY!


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Royal Farms Chicken is good, better than Wawa subs, but you aren't trying if you can't find comparable fried chicken.

Sorry, part of this got blurred out on my screen here in Philly: better than what?

This take reminds me of when Anita Marks had a radio show.

Non hot take: Weber is easily the most fun poster to troll on this board :-)

Totes overrated. Fries are garbage. Generic frozen store bought are better. Burger is good. Not amazing. Fat burger is better. Five Guys is best.

You 100% can’t get a stack of pepperoni and provolone melted on a bagel sandwich anywhere but Wawa, and maybe your kitchen. And that sandwich is amazeballs. Otherwise I agree.Though between the two, Wawa destroys Rofo, and Rofo fried chicken is far far far overrated.

The funniest people are the ones who try to convince you Sheetz is better than Wawa. Cmon

I mean whatever regarding that sandwich.

Rofo is good chicken so I'm not bashing them but I think a lot of people rate them a lot higher than they would if it were only a chicken restaurant.

Wawa is roughly Subway quality and I don't hear anyone going crazy for Subway like I do for Wawa.

Wawa's definitely better than Subway.

Incorrect. And once again, it's absurd that many people ignore price on this. Let's just compare Five Guys to $20 burgers and fries while we're at it.

Like how is it better? It's basically the same.

I stand behind In N Out. Shake Shack is better but their prices are absurd. The fries at In N Out just need a little salt and they’re great

It's not like the ingredients are better or different and the consumer has a ton of control of what ingredients go on the sandwich. But Wawa is way cooler than Subway so there's that.

To be clear, I'm not a big Subway fan. It's fine, just like Wawa. To act like either are amazing seems odd to me.
