Overrated ... Underrated

Post by JM1776 » Fri Feb 08, 2019 4:53 am

It's time again to try and get you guys on board with this one.

The premise is simple: List an example of each.
A caveat: The two must be somehow related.

In other words, the directly below works:

Janet Jackson: Overrated
Mary J. Blige: Underrated

The directly below does not:

Baseball: Overrated
Chickens: Underrated

Feel free to disagree with someone's opinion, but only if you explain why.

I'll begin in the following post.

And come on: Let's see some controversial opinions in here!
"Corporations view you the same way as ... customers ... the yammer about teamwork and family is stripper talk. The monologue they give while performing a routine called seduce and destroy. They’re not looking after you ... It’s a lubricant for overwork and underpay since you’ll be too distracted by groupthink to notice the stripper stole your wallet [and] your self respect." — Erick Diaz

Here we go.

Spirituality: Overrated
Religion: Underrated

(Hey ... I had to get us started with a bang.)

On a lighter note:

Giving money as a gift: Overrated
Actually thinking about the gift you give: Underrated

Edit: Misspelled "gift".
