Inspired by political: if something is not likely to harm or kill you and isn't a violation of a moral or ethics code you hold, should you try it once before deciding it's not for you?
Not really. Best example I can think of: gay sex. Not likely to harm or kill me, absolutely nothing morally or ethically wrong with it, but I have no need to try it to know it's not for me.
Not always. For example, I have never tried squid and I have no interest in trying it.
but...calamari is delicious!
If I actually wanted to do it, sure, but I'm not going to try things just to try it.
There simply isn't enough time to try everything.
I wouldn't eat live grubs.
Not if you have zero interest. Otherwise, go for it.
I voted yes but there's still other factors for me? For example, do I actually want to do it? Any non-physical or non-moral harm?
There are lots of things I simply don't have any interest in trying. Disgusting, smelly, boring, cramped, uncomfortable, bug ridden things.
So eating in a deli?
I'm not at all against gay sex but I'm totally not interested in trying it
Fair enough. I should have added the way you were born.
Some things, I just don't have any interest in, but I'd try them if I was with someone who was interested. I'm not any kind of opposed, but there are things that I'm just not even curious about.
Eating an ant isn't against my moral code or likely to harm me so should I do it?
I have tried the chocolate covered kind. I did it once.
You can and that's fine, but I wouldn't want to.
I ate live lemon ants out of a tree once. It was interesting... Made me want lemonade.
I'll try just about anything once.
Mostly I say yes but I feel like we all have some things that we don't need to try to know for sure.
I'm not trying fucking broccoli
Um uh nope not me never heard of him I'll go and my brother Jeb oh uh I mean John if he knows this "president Bush" guy
Seriously, you didn't know what I meant?
No I do know what you meant that's why I made the joke
Sorry. I goofed.
It's cool everyone makes mistakes
Sure why not. There are a few quotes, like "the sweetest fruit is a lemon, if that's all you've ever tasted"
Not necessarily. In theory, its a great practice to try as many things as possible, but for me at least, trying some things just wouldn't work and I know it already. Take hunting for example. I strongly dislike loud noises and the weight of a gun so
So hunting would not be in my best interest. For me to even try hunting would be rather foolish. That, and I dislike being outdoors and dislike the thought of any blood on an animal. Some things just don't need to be tried due to other experiences
Pointing that it simply would not be a good fit.
