Arby's curly fries.

Actually, curly fries in general.

The really tightly wound, soft, boingy ones are good. The rest are meh.

You think they're overrated, I think they're underrated.

Maybe they're properly rated.

I rarely get change nowadays since I usually don't use cash, but in my experience growing up in the 2000's, American coins were pretty common in our change and Canadian retailers wouldn't care if you used them. On the other hand, I can remember at least once trying to use a Canadian coin (quarter or less) in the US and being told that they won't accept it. As a kid it seemed ridiculous because to me they were basically interchangeable, but in hindsight and I can understand that Canadian currency is worth a bit less and probably less common further from the border.

It probably depends on where you are in the US and what coins you're using. I've recieved Canadian pennies as change on several occasions and didn't think anything of it. I've never used or received any larger Canadian coins, though, at least not that I can remember.

My wife and I went outside, saw that the moon was behind some trees, and went back in.  Whoopee.

I could've said that to, but instead I found a different spot where I could see.  :-P

I actually found the lunar eclipse interesting, but it's best observed a) during the transition phases and b) over a period of time. I started watching early on, when it looked like a normal full moon, then with a bite out of it, then half-gone, and finally just a speck of bright light on the edge, and that's when you really start to notice the reddish color. I didn't stay up to watch the shadow move off the other side, but if I had, I wouldn't have bothered watching the entire total eclipse phase in between, which is admittedly very boring.

And that's really the key difference between a lunar eclipse and a solar eclipse: while the transition phases are equally interesting (but much more watchable during a lunar eclipse), the "total" phase of a lunar eclipse is fairly boring and anticlimactic while the "total" phase of a solar eclipse is extremely exciting and climactic.

Agreed.  Curly fries are awesome, and that's just how they're generally rated.

Not the shape, but the seasoning. I don't know why curly fries always tend to be seasoned. I'd rate a seasoned crinkle-cut or shoestring fry the same as Arby's, but I'd also rate a regular curly fry the same as a regular cut of any other unseasoned fry.

You guys can keep our useless pennies. :-P

An interesting thought: I wonder if some Canadians purposely try to use their pennies in the US to get rid of them (saves the effort of going to the bank).

Lol maybe that sounds silly, but I'm thinking if you have a trip planned in a few months, it's easier to bring some of them on the trip instead.

Actually, I'll bet there's some truth to that. Might as well put your pennies in circulation in the US now that they're no good in Canada.

Maybe they're properly rated.

Agreed.  Curly fries are awesome, and that's just how they're generally rated.

I experience no awe when I eat a curly fry. Just disappointment that it's worse than a regular french fry.

In addition to the weird seasoning, the increased surface area of a curly fry means that they get fried into hard, inedible rocks far more frequently than standard fries.

My wife was a fan of the regular fries more than the curly fries, but grew to like them more when the regular fries were discontinued.

Me - the curly fries are excellent, and I prefer to dip them in their honey mustard sauce.

Yes, and those crunchy ones down at the bottom are the BEST!  YummmmmmmMMY!

Mix Arby's sauce together with Horsey sauce.  Hoo yeah!

I'm in this camp. In my view, crinkle cut is by far the best.

MVP stands for “Most Valuable Player”. Who is more valuable to their team?

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

The Kardashian's

Hard to be overrated when something is closely to universally hated. 

Regarding Kim Kardashian, I never understood why so many dudes a decade ago were into her.  She looked way more attractive pre-plastic surgery but even then wasn’t anything super special.
