There are many ways to prepare and cook a chicken, it's still chicken, it just has variation from added ingredients. Not all chicken dishes taste the same, not two chickens taste absolutely identical.

I don't know if that analogy is at all that different because there seems to be some kind of attitude towards the chicken no matter how you cook it. Even if you can't taste the chicken anymore if you know it's chicken you will not eat it. I call it stupid. I can't possibly say I don't like some single ingredient at all because that would mean I have tried it at every possible context and that isn't possible. That's why I keep open mind with everything in life, music and food and try not to make such generalizing statements.

For example I hate blue cheese. I have never eaten anything good with blue cheese in it. But I still can't say there's never going to be anything good made out of blue cheese. And I do realize that most of my life I have eaten stuff that has nothing to do with that flavor. So I won't go all the way and generalize that all the cheese in the world has to be horrible and nothing good will ever come from it and it isn't even worth of further investigation.

But this seems terribly out of topic already. I don't think I will have anything to add anyways.

Look, I agree with you, being a more open minded individual. But I'm still not going to try force someone that tells me they don't eat chicken to admit it is a great food.

You need not worry. I am well aware of my own fanaticism and do not allow it to interfere in any shape or form. Nothing in this world is ideal. Even ideal isn't ideal.

Top notch. But, I still think Taiga-kun would floor him.

Pffffft! I don't like his shoelaces and I don't think drummers should wear hats (while playing)!

I think the kid is great and I hope he stays at it and goes far. I wish I had his skills. Way to go, kid!
