One of the hardest things for science to quantify is satisfaction. It’s a hard thing to measure because pleasure and satisfaction are felt differently by each person to different degrees. That’s why we have different favorite foods, movies, colors, etc. The science of measuring satisfaction has always been shaky because preferences change. That means there are somethings that science today just simply can’t explain with empirical facts. This is a list of things that in my opinion are true but not provable with facts.

  1. Coke tastes better at McDonald’s.

I promise you that you will agree. Take a blind taste test; have one large foam cup from McDonald’s filled with Coke straight from the can and another filled with Coke from the tap. I don’t know what it is, but I feel more American while drinking Coke and eating McDonald’s.

  1. Pistachios taste better when you must crack them out of the shell.

The only reason I think this is the case is because of the extra satisfaction from receiving reward for your work. The pistachio tastes the same no matter if it comes in the shell or not, but you get extra satisfaction from knowing that the excruciating work of cracking those shells open will be rewarded by the savory green nut that rests inside. I find this premise to be true with sunflower seeds, Reese’s Cups, and shellfish. However, I believe the contrary is true with peanuts; the shell takes away from my overall satisfaction.

  1. Mountains are better than beaches.

The pure grandeur and size of the Rocky Mountains gives you a sense of self and understanding of nature that is far more beneficial and satisfying than a beach ever will be.

  1. East Lake is better than Tarpon

Well… this one I have facts for, the box score of the past 9 years of football games between the two.
