>Exposure, plain and simple. Scientists tell us that aversions fade away when we eat moderate doses of the hated foods at moderate intervals, especially if the food is complex and new to us. (Don't try this with allergies, but don't cheat either: few of us have genuine food allergies.) Exposure works by overcoming our innate neophobia, the omnivore's fear of new foods that balances the biological urge to explore for them. Did you know that babies who are breast-fed will later have less trouble with novel foods than those who are given formula? The variety of flavors that make their way into breast milk from the mother's diet prepares the infant for the culinary surprises that lie ahead. Most parents give up trying novel foods on their weanlings after two or three attempts and then complain to the pediatrician; this may be the most common cause of fussy eaters and finicky adults--of omnivores manqués. Most babies will accept nearly anything after eight or ten tries.

Generally positive unless it's some kind of fermented dish that smells horrible.

I enjoy good food, so you'd be wrong there. For instance the kind of shitfood you people make threads about here (jack, regional fast food, junk food "nostalgia food" threads about the toxic mass-produced poison your parents abused you with as a child) is of no interest to me and honestly produces a sense of physical revulsion just thinking about eating it

Authentic ethnic cuisines from all over the world on the other hand are in most cases full of wholesome and delicious things. Remember just because it doesn't smell like chemicals and have an indistinct texture due to being rammed through an extrusion tube and mixed with weird fillers and artificial preservatives doesn't mean it's going to hurt you. On the contrary, you'd probably do well to eat more real food.

Here is a picture of a food with recognizable anatomical features. Does this give you an anxiety attack?

They're called "chive dumplings." Because they're made with chives. They wouldn't be called that if they were made with snowpea leaves. You know the sort of chives I'm talking about, right? Those Asian, leafy sort of chives? Yeah. Those. That's what they're made of. You know the ones.

Reverse google search the image, and you'll see that the original source calls it a 'spinach, and shrimp dumpling'. I know chinese chives, and from looking, the leaves, and stem in those dumplings look nothing like those of the chives which are thin rather than clearly having stems.

Actually, the conversation started before that.

This guy is blind >>7248976 and mistook the dumplings in the OP for frozen vegetables.

This guy replied >>7249481 saying that the dumplings in the OP are chive dumplings.

Then this guy >>7249497 started trying to explain and prove that the picture in the OP is not chive dumplings.

So, if you think all that's going on is that some guy is trying to tell you that chive dumplings to not exist in any form on this Earth, then you have not been following the conversation.

Yup.
>>
>>7252201
Somebody said they were chive dumplings, (no it doesn't matter that it wasn't you) and then that guy said they were more likely to be snow pea dumplings.

Then you jumped in. But you shifted the conversation, perhaps not intentionally, to just make the point that "chive dumplings are a thing."

Both of you then started trying to convince each other of completely different things.

"What was said was that chive dumplings are a thing." This was never the point for him. He was replying to a post about the OP's dumplings.

You seem to be aware of this, and yet you made no effort to try to clarify the point you were making.

You're making a big deal out of a simple misunderstanding that you caused. You don't get to say what is pertinent or tangential when you hop into the middle of a conversation to give your two cents.
>>
>>7252230
>"i have no way to rebut that chive dumplings both exist and are tasty, so let me get buttflustered about it instead"

Okay.
>>
>>7252239
I'm not the person you were talking to about the chive dumplings, you should be more than aware of that by now.

I do want to ask you one thing though:
>>7251109
>>7251178

These two posts. He is clearing talking about a particular image, trying to explain what kind of dumplings they are.. He even goes on about how the greens in the image don't look like chives. This is your clue that he isn't talking about the thing that you're talking about.

So you should not be replying to that post just reiterating that "Chive dumplings are a thing. A delicious, delicious thing."

Because that doesn't follow at all, at least not for your argument. And only serves to confuse everybody. It's worded ambiguously enough that it's fair for him to assume you're talking about what he's talking about (the dumplings in the OP.)

Then it all just goes downhill from there.

Not with that attitude, I guess. But be honest, if you only consider the conversation itself, how does an online one really differ from an offline one?
>>
>>7252368
not him but conversations are held in real time with someone you know or can identify at least

you can have a conversation via irc for example, or via facebook messenger or face to face.

you cannot have a conversation on an anonymous imageboard, because either party can simply drop out of the conversation and because third parties can join in and impersonate or replace either of the participants
>>
>>7252394
That's such a strict definition of conversation. Complete nonsense, too.

Nothing precludes strangers from having a conversation in IRC or on facebook, or even in real life. Does it matter whether I "know" you as John Doe, or leetmaster5, or as Anonymous?

People can drop out of IRC, and drop dead in real life. Does that negate the conversation that took place? If a third person joins you at the dinner table, does it stop being a conversation?

I still maintain the conversation itself does not change. It may be slower, it may be short, but it will only be different if you purposely change it.

>>7252260
I appreciate your efforts to reason with the other poster. I never said chive dumplings are impossible. Just that a dumpling entirely out of chives would likely not be great - they do make dumplings that have predominately chives, but they're usually mixed with pork which is not evident in the picture. Hell I make gyoza with chives, but I mix it with pork, and shrimp. Another reason for this is that chives don't really hold together well without something else, hence why they're mixed with pork a lot of the time.

The guy who was replying to me seemed just intent to prove me wrong - even though, as the reverse image search showed, we were both wrong.

I based my judgement on my own experiences with snow pea tip dumplings or generally called "choy gao" in dimsum places (literally vegetable dumpling). Those dumplings tend to be nothing but the vegetable and quite a large helping of oil. They may occasionally include bits of dried scallops, and other aromatics.

I've attached a picture of an example of these dumplings, though the one at my local place has a thinner skin, and is as transparent as the one that OP posted.
