I Really Hate Cilantro

I'm OK with the fact that lots of people like disgusting things, like onions. I've pretty much figured out that I'm a Super Taster because I can definitely taste things that no one else can. Onions are the worst. They typically make me puke, especially when they're fresh. When they're stewed down to a cellulous blob, they're practically not onions any more. So I'm OK with that. But cilantro, fuck you. One little speck ruins my food. I really don't get what you're "loving" about cilantro. The best I can describe is it tastes like what I imagine alkaline in batteries taste like. It's metallic and overpowering. It doesn't make me puke, like onions, but it still ruins my food. People chop it up like parsley, so it's pretty much impossible to get every bit. But it only takes a tiny bit to ruin my food. 

What the hell are you tasting when you eat cilantro? I taste corroded metal dipped in sulfuric acid.

Google Plus…

So I finally got a Google+ account. Typically I'm an early adopter or beta tester, I got crap  like Gmail, Google Wave, and a bunch of other Google crap before most people. I was kind of bugged when others were getting Plus before I did, but when everyone started saying that "it's like Eff-book", I stopped being too annoyed. I ditched Eff-book and My_what's-its_Space for a reason. 

Now I never did have a problem with Blogs, I have a ton. I had blogs when they were called Personal Websites, and I had to rewrite (i.e. cut & paste) code everytime I wanted to update the page. I did that until I was able to get some cgi-bin access, and then I was able to use some scripts to do the very same shit that *diaryland* and *livejournal* did when they first came out, and what Blogger/Blogspot and WordPress do now. So I wonder how effective this Google+ will be as a Blog engine replacement. As much as people are addicted and trapped in Eff-book, people still blog. I know some people were using Myspace for blogging, and I'm sure people were starting to use Eff-book for blogging too. But Blogs never died. I bet you can thank RSS feeders for adding new life to that segment of the internet worlds.

So I'm wondering if Google+ will pull in my RSS feeds and mix it in with Buzz and/or Twitter and throw in Stream Posts on top of it. Or is that not the point? At this moment I don't see the point of Google+'s Stream. Especially if it's just _another_ Google Buzz. I'd rather keep that shit separate.
