    I worked at an Arby's in High School and now there's no way I will ever eat fast food again in my life, I don't care how delicious some people claim it is.

    I used to hate bitter melon and sushi a lot, but now I'm used to bitter melon, and I really love eating sushi now. One that remains intolerable for me is pork liver. Can never stand that stuff, while other livers are fine.

    I never understood the okra hate. Delicious vegetable.

    Thank you for admitting to being awful humans.

    Okra is really one of the few things where I can say that your opinions are objectively wrong.

    Okra is the cornerstone of gumbo. How can you hate on gumbo?

    I can honestly say there are no normal food I won't eat. Some I prefer more than others but nothing totally turns me off unless it's like beetle grubs.

    Mayonnaise. The second I know I'm eating mayo I get pretty nauseated.

    To get over it .. experiment, especially while drinking. After a beer and a half I'll pretty much eat anything. You know it's mental .. so that's half the battle.

    I've never tried, and likely never will try:
    - Sushi
    - Liver
    - Tuna

    +1. I can't eat mayonnaise even though I did when I was a kid.

    One can hate on it because it contains okra.

    Frying it is about the only way you can make it bearable- becuase you can't taste the okra.

    Tomatoes. I'm not sure why. I know I love the smell, and I really want to enjoy the taste, but the second I start eating one, I just can't handle it.

    You sir, are blessed. Anyway, for me it has to be Brussell Sprouts. I'm not sure why, I guess I've always had a mental predisposition against them.

    Ketchup, I hate the smell and the taste.

    I´ve tried to like it, because it´s almost everywhere (Swedes drown their pasta in that shit), but I just feel like throwing up every time I´ve tried it.

    Tomatoes, but not tomato sauce, don´t know why.
