24 People Share Stories Of Their Most Bizarre Celebrity Encounters.

It's rare that we get to come across celebrities. Some stories can be happy, some can be unfortunate, but the best stories are the ones that are just plain...weird!

Below are 24 stories of people who had an incredibly bizarre experience with a celebrity. Check them out!


1/24) Bill Nye pulled into the parking lot while my friends and I were hanging out. We thought it'd be funny to go ask him how to make bombs. He said that he would love to 'show us how to blow ourselves up'.

2/24) I met Alan Rickman as he was going into a theater. I blurted out, "I think you're awesome!" He stopped, turned around, looked me right in the eye and said: "Likewise", with a smile.

I have loved him ever since.

3/24) Not technically me, but got into a cab and the driver immediately started telling me his last fare had been Ralph Fiennes. Apparently Fiennes noticed the pictures of his son on the dash and driver admitted his son was a massive fan of Harry Potter, so Ralph offers to give him a call. So the guy calls his son and says 'I've got someone very special here who wants to talk to you', Ralph takes the phone and goes straight in, full Voldemort voice, with 'So I hear you think you're a strong enough wizard to defeat me??' Apparently for the next few minutes all the cabby can hear is lots of tough talk and then a lot of shouting 'expelliarmus!' 'you'll never defeat me!' and then a very convincing death gargle. Ralph passes the phone back, signs a bit of paper which the cabby showed us 'To George, The greatest wizard I have ever duelled' and then tips very well. pretty cool I thought... Not a lot of kids get to duel Voldemort over the phone.

4/24) James Franco spoke at my university last year. I waited around after his talk with my friend because she wanted to try to get a photo with him. He was a great guy and took his time with all of the people there. I took the photo, we had a nice chat with him, and as we were heading off, she gave him a hug. I just looked at Franco and said, "Dude, don't I get a hug, too?" He simply responded, "Come here, man."

It was a great brohug.

5/24) When X-Men was being filmed in my city, I was working at a grocery store. We had people come in from the film throughout, and I was working a closing shift one night and Patrick Stewart and Halle Berry came in and Patrick and her were walking down an aisle and she had two big security guys with her. There wasn't that many people in the store but as they came towards where I was working the security guards positioned themselves to I guess "protect" her from me or something. Thing is I don't give a dang about Halle Berry. So I walked by them, completely ignoring her and looked at Patrick Stewart and said "you're way better than Kirk." He gave me a smile and nodded at me and one of the security guards cracked up a little like "he doesn't even care it's Halle Berry." I mean, you don't run into Picard every day.

6/24) I met Bill Clinton at a book signing and asked him if he likes squids. He said "Well to watch or to eat"? "To watch," I responded. Bill was about to sign the next guy's book and he pauses, cocks his head in my direction and says, "Yes I do".

7/24) Obama bought me a hot dog

He came to my university with David Cameron in the spring. I was among a group of students invited to sit by him. He was asking everyone around him if they wanted hot dogs, but they were all reluctant to say yes. I was just outside of his "offer-a-hot-dog" radius, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity. So, I reached over and said "I'll have a hot dog!". He gave me a weird look, and then turned around. Later, after the hot dogs came (he bought other people hot dogs too), he looked back at me and asked, "Did you get your hot dog?" I replied with a firm "MYEAAAH THANK YOU!"

8/24) I met Lil' Jon at JFK when I was about 14. My brother and I noticed him but were too afraid to go up. Our Aunt shamelessly went over and said "Are you little John?'. He responded calmly "yes ma'am, I am". Totally shook my perception of him.

MischiefMayhemSoap

9/24) One time I was in a Subway in Orem, UT and Gerard Bultler walks up behind me. I look at him, he smiles at me, and then we both pretend that he isn't himself. I say, "You look like Gerard Butler, he's one of my favorite actors." He said, "I get that a lot," and winks. Then he asks, "Well, are you a true fan of his?" And I say, "Of course!" He asks if I knew what he used to do, I reply with, "He used to be a lawyer, before giving that up to pursue acting," and then we spent the next twenty minutes discussing law, politics, and why someone would give up a successful career in law. Then, we shook hands and parted ways.

10/24) I met Mel Gibson one time (pre-racist meltdowns.) My uncle was one of his assistants and at the time, they were talking about how Mel was about to buy a jet. My uncle says: "Don't you want to at least see it before you buy it?" Mel responded "What am I gonna do? Walk around and kick the tires?"

11/24) Last winter I was in the British Virgin Islands and I ran into Morgan Freeman. He was sailing around down there and his boat was on the same dock as us.

First night there, a little girl was fishing next to our boat right off the pier. She caught a fish (pretty small one). Morgan Freeman walks by as her dad is helping her take the fish off the line. They don't speak any English (they were Spanish), but he says to her anyway "Wow! Looks like I'll be having dinner on your boat tonight!" Little girl just lit up like a Christmas tree. Really cute.

Also, his boat is named "Afro-desia" Brilliant pun.

12/24) Years ago, I'm with some friends at this shitty bar in New Orleans. A friend of a friend is playing an acoustic show, and we're the only ones in the bar. Out of nowhere, this giant crowd comes into the bar, and out of nowhere, Nic Cage emerges. Where we're sitting, between us and the stage, is a dance floor. He falls to his knees, and starts doing this weird dance thing. It looked like the pic of Hendrix when he lit the guitar on fire. He does this for a very short amount of time, then he hops up, goes " Woooohooo" and saunters out the bar, quickly followed by all of his followers. It was surreal.

13/24) A buddy of mine was having a smoke outside a bar near Detroit, when Bruce Campbell strolls by. It's a little after 1 am and he's wearing ray ban shades. One of his friends sheepishly asks "Excuse me, are you Bruce Campbell?". Bruce stops, tips his sunglasses, and responds with "Well, someone's gotta be".

14/24) I was having lunch at a cafe in Culver City with a friend when Nick Swardson walked by our table. I said "hey Nick! Can I get a high five? I loved you in Grandma's Boy!!" So, he gave me a high five and then asked me if there was room for another at our table.

We were both somewhat confused but moved over and made room for him, so he sat down next to us and took a cookie wrapped in cellophane out of his pocket and said "Hey, do you guys want some of this cookie? I just got it at the counter, it's so good!!" and proceeded to break us both off a piece. He asked how our day was going and if we were enjoying our food, then said "it was great meeting you guys, I'm going to go get really drunk now! Take care and keep being awesome!" and walked off.

PatBabyParty

15/24) My older brother was at a bar in LA during the night of one of the huge award shows. When he was reaching for his beer Amanda Seyfried (Karan in Mean Girls) took it and walked out of the bar without looking back. The guy next to him patted him on the back and offered a drink on him. It was Tom Hanks. What a class act.


16/24) I saw Aphex Twin on a train to London. I walked up the aisle and said "hey, you're Richard James, right?" He replied "Yeah, you want a sweet?" and proceeded to give me a steak and cheese flavoured hard candy... It actually tasted like steak and cheese...

17/24) My story: I met Bill Clinton when he was doing book signing for My Life. I told him he was the sexiest president we've ever had and he shook my hand twice. My friend did not get a second handshake.

My mother once literally ran into Dennis Rodman face first while rounding a corner in a Vegas casino. His security team was all over her for a moment until they realized she was just some drunk lady. Apparently he was very nice.

CalicoBlue

18/24) Not me but my dad. He's pretty oblivious to the celebrity world and Laura Linney moved into the apartment next to us and came over to introduce herself. After speaking with her for a few minutes my dad realized he recognized her and said "Wait I know you...did we go to college or something together?"

19/24) I literally ran into Tom Selleck a few years back. I was working at a store that sold cowboy hats and other assorted western things, and on this particular day, I had to dust off a bunch of cowboy hats that were on the tops of the hat racks. As I was carrying these hats through the store, making my way to the back room to clean them, I accidentally ran into someone and got quite a bit of dust on their shirt. I stared at the dust on their shirt, apologizing like crazy, then looked up - lo and behold, it was Tom Selleck. He was super nice. So was his mustache.

rosetylersbitch

20/24) I've told this story before but my friend and I always "call out" everyday people that we think look like famous people. Example: see a red head "Hey look! It's Ron Howard!". We were in a bar in Boston and I saw a guy at the bar and I go "Hey look! It's Sean Penn". She goes "Bad call. Looks nothing like him". I look closer and go "Holy crap! It IS Sean Penn!". So I go up and thinking I am all cool I start talking to the guy who was with him. Sean eventually just turns to me, puts out his hand and says "Hi. I'm Sean". I am dying inside but trying to play it cool. We start talking and I tell him how I am a big fan of his but also his brother Michael Penn (musician). He proceeds to pull out his cell phone, call his brother and he hands me the phone!!! So I am talking to Michael Penn on Sean Penns cell phone. Michael tells me to call Sean "Sean-ie" cause he hates that. I do it and Sean cracks up laughing. Seriously one of the best nights of my life and why Sean Penn will always be ok in my book.


21/24) When I was a little I was having Chinese food with my mom in some hole in the wall place in Vancouver, and Steven Tyler came in, and saw me and said I was so cute, and gave me his bandana.

22/24) When I was about 10 I was in Chef Mickey's at Disney world, I had about 20 strips of bacon on my plate when a voice from behind me say "easy on the bacon young man" and there was Arnold Schwarzenegger. I told him he was the terminator and he laughed and signed my arm. I'm pretty sure my mother has a picture of my signed arm at the house.

strangeclouds

23/24) I met Ken Jeong from The Hangover in Hawaii, and I walked up to him and said, 'You can suck my chinese nuts'. He looked at me kind of weirdly and laughed, we talked for a little bit but he was in a rush to get back to his family. I realized maybe he isn't as weird as he was in The Hangover and he seemed really calm and normal. But then, just as he left back he yells out to me..... 'TOODALOOO!"

24/24) Not me, but my dad. A couple months ago, he and his girlfriend decided to take an impromptu weekend trip to Vegas. They're sitting at this bar and notice this guy in a crazy outfit walk in. The paparazzi is trailing him and they get stuck behind a velvet rope near the entrance of the bar. As this guy is trying to sit down, these photographers keep snapping pictures.

My dad thought this was pretty rude. He pulled out his phone and started snapping pictures of the paparazzi. They start yelling at him and demanding to know what the hell he thinks he's doing and he just tells them that if they can take photos of someone who doesn't want it, then he can take photos of them.

After a couple minutes, a bodyguard from the guy's table approaches my dad and his girlfriend. My dad figures that they're too close and starts saying, "Sorry, we'll move down a bit," but the bodyguard interrupts him and says, "No sir, Mr. Rodman would like to know if you would join his table." They walk over and to their surprise, it's Dennis Rodman.

He thanked my dad for what he did and told him how it was one of the funnier reactions he'd ever seen to the photographers. He bought them a couple drinks and they sat and talked for a while; apparently he kept saying my dad was a funny guy (granted, my dad has a pretty decent, if dorky, sense of humor and jokes pretty much constantly).

Eventually my dad said they'd go back to the bar and leave him alone for a bit; he thanked them again. After another few minutes, the bartender brings over a bottle of champagne and opens it for them. My dad, being a wine lover, recognizes it as a bottle that runs several hundred dollars and stops the bartender in a panic, assuming he'd misheard their order. The bartender said it was taken care of, at which point Dennis Rodman taps my dad on the shoulder, says, "Enjoy it," and walks out.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

Giphy

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

- RazerWolf04

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold

Whether Albert Einstein or Arnold Schwarzenegger would be more useful to have around during a Zombie apocalypse. How on earth would Albert Einstein come in handy!?

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

Microwaves

Stupid microwaves. Having a man child talk down to me about how microwaves work only for him to google it and prove me right. He slept on the sofa that night.

My friend keeps telling me that the norm is that a person should shower once a week. This has been going on for years. I'm almost convinced he's trolling me.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

Giphy

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Male Chickens

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

Lightning McQueen

Me and my friend were drinking underage, we ended up in an argument of whether lightning McQueen's eyes were blue or green. Somehow throughout the whole thing both of us never thought to straight up google a picture.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

"no, it's red"

"orange"

"YOU CANT EVEN KNOW"

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

Giphy

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Frisby2007

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

dude_bizarro

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

Giphy

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
