Disagreements and differences of opinion are part of what makes a place vibrant, interesting and at times annoying.
You like tea, and think coffee tastes like shit. I love coffee and think tea tastes like pee. But we both can agree that sitting together drinking our favourite beverage leads to some interesting conversations.
