    Canned black olives are absolutely disgusting. Smelling a can of those makes me want to vomit.

    I'll just stick with banana peppers. Thanks.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I like olives of all kinds on my pizza.

    I probably slightly prefer black olives, especially on pizza or in a salad, but I also like green olives. I like to suck the pimentos out of green olives, or chop them up in cream cheese and spread them on a cracker.

    Green olives because they are more useful for Mediterranean cuisine.
    For instance, when I want to cook a Tajine, or any dish from the middle-east.

    The black olives are also used for the Tapenade. But then, we should make the difference beween olives that are black before ripening (Olives de Nyons, for instance, or Kalamatas), and those that become black only after having lengthily been fermented/cured into vinegar/brine (like the Italian Gaetas or the majority of Greek olives).

    They're nature's dingleberries.

    I thought of adding Kalamatas ( purples ? ) to the choices but it seemed like it would be reaching. If these places can't even handle including green olives as an option, how could we get them to include Kalamatas ?

    The little place I get pizza from offers both on their supreme pizzas. I never thought much about it. I love olives but Kalamata and Nioise are my favorites.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
