      Sup my street streeeeet PEEEEEEEOOOOOOOPLE?

      So, lots and lots of yippitty yapping, yada yada yada but not enough about the most important subject in the world… Me.

      I, Noah Sinclair, and trust me, it’s actually me kiddos, pull my finger and I’ll belch something you could light on fire… I am the utmost authority on how to Work The System and I believe that a large part of The System is maximizing the tools that you already have and doing the most you fucking can with them. Don’t wait for tomorrow, don’t wait until you feel like it and don’t wait for someone else’s permission.

      So how are you numb nuts going to try and take the pebble out of my hand today?

      I’ll tell you how, with your mouth.

      Now before all of you get your lady boners going, let me explain…

      I want everyone to go back and think about an item of food that they used to find absolutely DISGUSTING.

      We all have them. Think of the thing you found horrendous, the one thing that kept you at the table crying and refusing to eat it until finally your favorite housekeeper was forced to eat so much that she got sent to the hospital to have her stomach pumped and never looked you in the eye the same way again. What? Just me?

      Alright, maybe your hippy dippy childhood home wasn’t exactly the same as mine but you can’t argue with results can you? But, we are off track. This isn’t about discipline this is about revisiting what we believe to be true.

      I want everyone to go out and pick that nasty, disgusting food or drink item from your past that you haven’t had in at least 10 years or more and I want you to try it again in the next 6 hours. Now, this is again, this is food and drink, (I have access to a lot of things and no one start talking about eating you know what “like it’s groceries”. I’m looking at you @creepsociety, by the way, where the heck were you 10 years ago you crazy little freakshow!?)

      Now go out there, do this with an open damn mind and report back with a review. Heck, film it and post it up if you’d like.

      It doesn’t matter how you do it as long as you keep an open mind and check back in with a report. It can be as simple as thumbs up and thumbs down. Let’s all see how this goes…

      Go get it!

      Now, less blah blah blah and more finding your inner truth and shit. I won’t call on the disruptors again.

      Hey @maddyxxx, for once a task I can see genuine benefit from. I’m in, but 6 hours? Who the hell eats before 5 PM other than the elderly? You want to add some extra hours to your time frame for those of us who aren’t geriatric? Lunch options may be limited for those of us who have work during the day. I will likely be able to something for lunch, but it might be tricky.

      There are definitely many food/drinks I don’t like. I am the pickiest eater there is. Everything grosses me out and I have an immense fear of getting sick (vomiting) which I don’t mess with! So this sucks!! I may be going with the lesser of all evils but the thought of drinking orange juice with pulp still turns my stomach and makes me want to gag so I think it still counts! ? headed to the market..to be continued..

      @blondie I literally don’t even know what you are talking about, this isn’t about on a train or not on a train. You can cheat in life all you want, in fact I often encourage it, but when it comes to learning something or not learning something you only short cut yourself if you don’t even try or have a take away. I thought I would have made that clear by now. So, hop on my thread, bitch and complain, don’t do anything and teach everyone how to not try a new experience… Good work. Try things, grow, get out of your supposed boxes or go waste someone else’s time.

      NOW, I always learn something from everything so my take away from your nonsense is THIS…

      A WARNING:

      The rest of you, DO NOT go over the top and over-exaggerate because it’s fun… Sure, I do indeed want to see someone barf. I am human. This isn’t about that though, it’s about re-avulating supposed truths. Examine your stupid bullshit, check in, find out if it’s still there.

      @maddyxxx I’m not going to participate in this challenge but I actually do see some value in it. I will say that as a child I hated tomatoes and now I love them. Tastes change over time (in more ways than one). So, I’ll enjoy watching everyone expand their horizons today. Maybe I’ll even go try out some asparagus just to see if I still hate it… but I’m not filming it for you.

      However, I will say that @maddyxxx has a point. My texture preferences aside, over the years I have found myself being okay with textures that I used to despise. I used to fucking hate tofu and now I love it. Alas, I guess flan is not in the cards for me…

      Task completed. Fuckin’ hate pesto so that was my target.

      Upside: Got to go out to lunch and get some pesto-laden pasta. Turns out I still fucking hate it but I got to expense it so got my company to pay for this little experiment.

      Downside: Lunch meeting meant that I couldn’t film it, though. Wasn’t all that exciting anyways. Just thoughtful expression, bite, bite, swallow, frown. Fucking riveting stuff.

      Overall 4/10 experience. Maybe 5/10 because I got free shitty food. Also pesto is still shit and anyone who likes it is outright wrong.

      It was tough for me to think of something because in the past few years I’ve already been revisiting foods I hated as a child (fish, plantains…). Often they weren’t anything like what I remembered.

      Eventually I decided on a Tootsie Roll…haven’t had one of these in 20+ years. The only time I had one as a child, I threw up. Everything about them just repelled me – the smell, the texture, the way I remembered bits of paper staying stuck to the Tootsie Roll.

      Still not a fan of the smell. But the taste was tolerable, the texture was actually kind of fun, and wrappers have improved over the years – no leftover bits at all. Still not my thing, but I guess I don’t have to be repelled by them. 3/10

      I’m always a proponent of giving things a chance, even if you hated it in the past.
      I fucking hate Indian food, but many of my friends love it, so I will go to restaurants with them and try to find a dish I enjoy. I’ve found a *very* small amount of things there I enjoy.
      Sometimes you convince yourself you hate something, but it’s situational. “I hate ___ but it’s probably because the last time I hate it, it was during the dinner where my parents told me they were getting a divorce” or some shit.
      So I’ll give things a chance.

      Gin fucking sucks and why continue to test and see if I see like it if there’s whiskey in the world for me to make sweet mouth love to?

      People however, that’s a little bit harder for me. If I decide I don’t like a person, it’s hard for me to not hold a grudge and decide to give them a chance again in the future. People change, but my wrath rarely does.

      SOvthe item I chose, I haven’t had it in about 15 years or so. It is the original flavor licorice, and I absolutely despise it. When I was younger, I’d always be at my grandma’s house… and the only sweet sort of “treat” was her Australian licorice. She’s always offer them to me and if I ever refused she’d tell me how rude it is for someone to decline something from their grandma because “who knows how many years I have left”. Guilt trippin the full nine yards. So whenever I’d have one, I’d she’s it for maybe a minute and then excuse myself to the bathroom where I would straight spit that shit out in the toilet. I mean, even just the texture fees like it was glazed in fucking smelly slime.

      I found some sweet aftertaste after the initial blast of disgusting tartness subsided.

      I genuinely cannot think of a food that I hate (someone already beat me to the licorice, can there be repeats? Speaking of licorice- why do I adore it’s flavor in absinthe, but hate it in rope form?). Any ideas for the non-picky eater?

      And no, my housekeeper never had to eat my leftovers, but my brother DID pee in her bed when my parents dumped us at her house to go on their ski trip. So that’s nice.

      I should review this. The flavor of the mayo was not as bad as I expected it to be, but there were far too many things happening in my mouth at once. (Put that on my tombstone.)

      That said, I can see why it might be nice on a sandwich. But I did not take any of the extra packets home for snacks.

      Fun thing I’ve learned watching these videos from all you foul people…

      Expanding on what I said earlier, much like the foods we hated 10+ years ago, people can give us bad impressions and put awful tastes in our mouths (heyooo) and sometimes giving them another chance proves us wrong and makes us realize that they weren’t as bad as we remember.
      But watching these videos proves that 9/10 times, they are in fact just as bad as you remember and still turn your stomach. Giving people a 2nd chance is important, do so with an open mind…but also a very cautious one. And have a bucket handy. Or an escape plan.
      People can change, foods stay the same. It’s our perception of the foods that change. Sometimes people change into better flavors. Sometimes they stay rotten.

      There’s also something to be said about learning to stomach foods you hate. You don’t ever have to like them, but being able to stomach them gives you a sort of power. Like people- some people change, most don’t, but like you said, your perception of them can. But being able to stand them, even the ones you don’t like gives you a similar kind of power, I’d say. Not that everything is about power, but we ARE dealing with Noah here, so aside from him compiling a montage of videos of us cringing and making awful faces, I have to believe there’s some sort of empowering message or reason behind this. Noah is all about power.

      Went out and got a thing of yogurt because I can’t stand the smell or taste of it. I can’t even remember the last time I tried to eat a cup of the stuff, it’s got to be 15+ years, probably more. I’m actually glad @maddyxxx set this task out because I found out I don’t totally hate it anymore. The memory of the thing was actually much worse than the thing itself. I still don’t enjoy yogurt and may never eat it again, but that wasn’t an awful experience.

      There was one particular food item my Dad always tried to get me to eat when I was a kid. I always hated it. To the point that it would actively make me retch whenever I even thought of it.

      Today I faced that fear, thanks to @maddyxxx and The System.

      UPDATE: A friend brought up a good question, so just to clarify — I was prepared for multiple different reactions depending on how I felt about revisiting the food in question. #bepresent

      Okay so I chose to do a food and drink.

      I haven’t eaten these items for 20 years.

      Periscope here with details and backstory as well as me doing the deed.

      The big take away for me here is that I may still completely and utterly detest these items but I can now associate them with a memory that has nothing to do with parenting issues. So that’s a big plus one for me.

      I can’t agree with you there. When I was a kid, and all through rugby season, my dad used to make me eat hardboiled eggs. I still hate my dad.

      On the bright side, I communally suffered with other people. So that’s nice.

      Could also be said that that everyone showed their strength, too. They’ve shown just how far they’re willing to go. Bravely and boldly, at that. Cheers to you guys.

      Doesn’t delete the issues @ruck. Merely helps disassociate the item with the issues.

      Now I can associate 2%milk and Anchovies with you terrible people.

      As @meghanmayhem said earlier… perceptions can be changed. It’s a top tier lesson. Change your perception of something and reevaluate why or how you feel about it.

      I now know that I hate anchovies and 2%Milk because they are fucking gross, not because I had a detached mom.

      Here’s mine. That was my first periscope, I was nervous. Vienna sausages and Coors Light are two gross things my mom ate all the time when I was growing up (we were like .25% white trash). I hated both! Sausages actually weren’t as bad as I remember…but I’m not even going to give the rest to my dog. Coors Light is gross, especially a tall one! Right in the trash.

      @blondie, honestly it’s childhood trauma. Sorry to get heavy, but right when I tasted it, it brought me back to when I was 4 or 5 years old and my mom would drink Coors Light all day, then pass out on the couch and I would have to put myself to bed. I hate it! Now I can’t stop thinking about “stuff”…

      @sfire8 I’m sorry you went thru that – I had a similar experience during childhood but for different reasons with different causes. But the long-lasting wounds are the same and I won’t attempt to diminish what you put yourself thru today *all the hugs*

      What I will do however is diminish the asshat behind what you did today. And @maddyxxx, feel free to delete this as it is clear you hate dissenters.

      My manifesto is simple.

      1) Be true to yourself. If you feel stuff, don’t fucking apologise for that. If you wanna be a bitch, well… Ok. Maybe be less of a bitch cos it’s kinda annoying. If you believe in something, be proud and say so. Respect yourself cos no-one else will…

      And 2) Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

      It really is that simple. Be a decent person. Be the change you want to see in the world. And that advice is FREE motherfuckers. No jumping through hoops. No $$$. Just me. Saying BE FUCKING DECENT TO EACH OTHER.

      And my absolutely disgusting food to eat was…drum roll please…Costco hot dogs! It’s been so long since I’ve had one, it was wrapped in a PRICE CLUB LABEL. That’s right kids, 1993. I think all hot dogs are disgusting, but I have also dated someone who worked in the Costco cafeteria in the past, so I find anything made there particularly gross (except the fro-yo) because I know what’s happening behind those doors. I did not film it because I don’t need to hear Noah’s jokes about phallic food going in my mouth. I can tell you that with enough toppings I could make this into something I could stand. The lesson to take away then is that clearly if we cover up life’s bullshit with enough garnishes, it becomes bearable. Yay!

      Aww, look at @maddyxxx having a perfectly reasonable idea! I ain’t gonna make a video, but I can definitely confirm that mustard is still an abomination. One spoon, Gulden’s spicy brown mustard, I’d have to give it a pretty solid F. I can’t taste anything good that might be hiding behind that sea of vinegar.

      Since everyone is tellin’ stories, I’ve hated mustard for as long as I remember. When I was probably 8-10 or so, my grandmother and I were taking a day trip somewhere like the zoo. We stopped at McDonalds for food, where she got me 2 hamburgers, both with mustard. I remember being revolted by the smell, in the back seat of my parents car, trying to eat one and just not being able to choke it down. I don’t even remember for sure where we were going, but I remember that fucking hamburger with mustard.

      People who lived through the Great Depression don’t have any sympathy for kids who don’t like certain foods. Like, at all. So, I went hungry that day. Mustard fucking suuuuuucks, would starve again.

      Sounds like an interesting experiment, so I thought I’d give it a try. Since I’m in rural Japan not much is available that fits the criteria of “something I had ten years ago and didn’t like,” so I had to make do. As a kid I tried vegetable juice once and disliked it, and I haven’t had any since. The closest thing from my tiny local grocery store was “sweet tomato juice” (あまいトマト)so that’s what I chose to accompany my lunch today. Now, I love tomatoes in every shape and form but tomato juice is something I’ve perhaps been subconsciously avoiding.

      Verdict: Not bad, tastes like soup. Would drink again, though I prefer my tomatoes savory rather than sweet.

      I tried the challenge today with mushrooms the one thing I absolutely hated as a child growing up. And the result was that they weren’t nearly as bad as I thought they would be. Still not big on the consistency but the taste was ok. That just goes to show you that time changes things and not to be afraid to try new foods or experiences.

      Since @maddyxxx isn’t here to expound some deeper meaning behind his task now that we’ve (mostly) all partaken in his task, I’ll follow @larry that what he wrote is likely exactly the “deeper meaning” behind this. Yes Noah wanted us to re-evaluate our past thoughts and feelings. But guess what, MANY of us still hate those food and drink items. I probably had one of the less extreme reactions (no puke on my end) but I still will likely never voluntarily eat octopus again. Very few, if any, came out of this with a changed perception.

      BUT, since he had us all broadcast our food quests, we saw the varied responses. For just about any item, someone was in SHOCK that someone else couldn’t stand it. I freaking love cole slaw, and to hear there’s people out there who despise it sounds utterly strange to me.

      So even if none of us really found a new appreciation for a food, it was a reminder that just because something is great / awful to us, it is by no means a standard across the board. Opinions are just that, opinions, and far from a universal fact.

      So way to go Noah. I still don’t trust you and your System, but you managed to come up with a task with a pretty fantastic lesson.

        I had the opposite lesson, in the sense that I was surprised by just how many people share my own food aversions (I also hate cole slaw, by the way). I agree with the vast majority of them, in fact. For me, the lesson is that nothing is as bad as your childhood self thought it was. I still hate Triscuits, but it’s not the worst thing in the world and I can finally imagine eating one without feeling like I want to gag.

      @winstonsmith
      and I were talking on another thread about those who see one thing as incontrovertible truth find that others think they are fucking crazy. But if one’s long-held perspectives, based on perception (such as taste) are re-examined, what was once crazy may now appear perfectly sane.

      Or in the case of @maddyxxx
