I misread the thread title as "controversial chat" and I was ready to come in with all my hot takes.
You just made me realize the title of this thread is conversational and not controversial. I was wondering why it seemed to lack controversial conversation.

Semi-controversial opinion - no wall should be adorned with wallpaper.

I've always hated it cos my gran had this really rough wallpaper, like it really would scratch your skin up.

I really dont like wallpaper. Its a real pain to take down when you dont want it anymore. Paint can be painted over and its fairly easy when you want to change a room. Im really not a decorator but new paint really has an effect.

Paint is so much easier to handle, if you really want, you can paint on a whim, whilst wallpaper is kind of thing you have to plan in advance.

Next controversial opinion;

A hamburger is not a sandwich. It's a burger.

A toastie is a sandwich, but that's as far as I'd go with that. A sandwich, to me, should be on sliced bread of some description. As soon as you start using a ciabatta, a baguette, a bagel, a bread roll, a burger bun, it ceases being a sandwich.

I mean a sub is a sandwich. I dont call a burger a sandwich though.

I consider myself lucky that I havent gotten food poisoning myself. Im always really paranoid about it. Im not too good at cooking yet, so I need to learn to cook stuff thoroughly without overcooking it.

get a kitchen probe - it's what we use at work, and I have one at home too. You just need to google what temperature food should be.

For me all I really need to know is that 82 C is gonna be fully cooked through, in anything, from beef to potatoes. 55 C is medium rare for most cuts of beef, then add another 5 for each further level in doneness, from medium rare to well done. I'd highly recommend getting a probe, it takes a lot of guesswork out of cooking.

This is the one I use at home, it's cheap and does the job.
