People Share The Creepiest Thing They've Experienced That No One Believes

It's all true. I swear!

We know there is another realm we cannot see. The spirits walk among us, that is a fact. Why is it only a few of us are touched with the proof? The spirits are restless and they want to be heard! So why not tell everybody? Everytime something is off and a bit eery those of us affected are left looking like loons, off to fend for ourselves. If only people would heed the signs. One day the spirits will show themselves to you.

Redditor u/dogidoga_100 wanted us all to be warned about the things we're not fast to believe by asking.... Whats the creepiest/scariest thing that you've seen but no one believes you?


Photo Proof....

Giphy

I was sleeping at my cousin's house on New Year's Eve 2014. My 3 cousins, brother and I all decided to sleep in the same bedroom as our parents were staying out all night (we were old enough to stay at home on our own). Point is, we were 100% the only people in the house that night and all slept in the same place.

Woke up the next day and was getting in the car to leave when I had a look at my camera roll from the previous night. To my absolute horror, there were 5 photos of us all sleeping. Every single person was in the photos fast asleep, so there was no way any of us took them.

My aunt showed the photos to the landlord and he had no explanation. To this day, nobody knows who took them. leopardmask

Bad Sober Moments....

In college, I had a summer internship in a national park that had just ended a wolf reintroduction program. A number of interns were housed in an area of cabins clustered together on a one-lane gravel road. I was staying in a different area of the park, and had gone over to the cabins for dinner one night. I left pretty late, close to midnight and was enjoying the quiet walk down the road to my car; it was a clear night with a full moon, and the conifers growing on either side of the road shaded it almost entirely.

As I'm walking, I see a light-colored shape on the other side of the road coming in my direction. I kept walking, slowly, and as we drew toward each other, I saw that it was an ENORMOUS canid of some sort... far too big to be a coyote, but as far as we knew, all the wolves had been relocated. We each kept our pace, and it never turned its head or anything... just kept walking. I somehow managed not to piss myself, but by the time I got into my car, was shaking so hard I could barely get my key in the ignition.

Everyone I've told thinks I was exaggerating, but I was stone-cold sober, less than 10 feet from it, and that animal's back was up to my waist... easily the biggest dog-creature I've ever seen. frickenfricksrsly

Forest 911.... 

Right after high school (class of '91) I got a contract job with the Forest Service. We travelled all over the West doing gopher control in re-planted clear cuts. The gophers would eat the tender roots of the newly planted saplings, and we had to control them to give the trees a chance to get started.

We were returning to our hometown after a long job in Oregon, driving across the desert near a government lab. It's about 3am, we're going about 80 in a 55mph zone. Suddenly, a semi truck, completely blacked out, no lights at all, bombs past us on this stretch of highway like we were standing still. Then, two army style trucks, also blacked out.

Got back to our hometown, told several people what we saw, no one would believe us. I still think they are doing freaky stuff out their in that desert lab. If we'd tried to chase them or anything, we probably would have disappeared. TrickyRonin

Annabelle : The Origin....

Giphy

Doing a service call on an apartment, this lady has obvious obsession with dolls, like those 15 inch tall pioneer looking dolls. She's not home, so I go about my business, very uncomfortable, and even more so when I enter her bedroom. She literally has 300+ dolls with doll heads tied to strings from the ceilings, and a small little altar-like thing in the corner of her bedroom, with a severed chicken head, and gargoyle-like statues and pictures of children. There's a pig's hoof hanging from a red cord in her bathroom. When I get to the dining room, there's a ouija board and multiple dolls all arranged around a dismembered doll that's drenched in what I think was blood.

I think I broke the human top-speed record that day. No one believes me to this day. nolemarin305

Don't Blink....

I once walked into my living room to see a football that I have never seen before lying in the middle of the room, vertically. It fell on one side when I guess it "noticed me" and proceeded to roll into the kitchen and behind the counter and out of view. After standing there from awe and confusion I went to look for it, it wasn't there. Never saw it again. EmptyToad45

Graves can be Sexy?

In high school I briefly dated a gothy chick whose idea of a good time was to hang out (and yeah, occasionally make out) in the old graveyard out on the edge of town. Not my favorite thing in the world, but she was cute and I was 16, so there you have it.

One night she told me to meet her there. Place was dark and empty, as always. I had my phone flashlight and was poking my way through the headstones to the tree that was our usual meet-up spot, when I saw some movement in my peripheral vision. Turned the light to where I thought it was in time to see a silhouette move behind a headstone about thirty yards away. I was sure it was her trying to scare me (which she sometimes did) and called out to her, and in response I heard a female voice - but not hers - call the same name back to me, like it was mocking me. I turned and sprinted back to the road.

I texted her from my car. She said she hadn't left her house yet. I cancelled on her and drove home. harrycranescomputer

Do you hear the howl?

When I was little (7 or 8), I woke up one night to a white dog sitting in the doorway of my bedroom. This was weird because we didn't have a dog or any other indoor pets. While I watched it got up and went down the hall towards the living room. I got up, looked down the dark, empty hall and went the opposite direction to my parent's room. I woke my mom up and told her there was a dog in the house. She got up and we looked, but didn't find anything. She thought I was dreaming.

At some point, when I was older, I found a picture of the dog my parents had when I was a baby. I learned from my mom that the dog often slept in my doorway, guarding my room. But the dog died before I was two. The dog in the picture was the dog I saw that night. LorelaisDoppleganger

I See You!! 

My friends and I used to frequently visit the abandoned Joesph P. Ladd school. It was rumored to be haunted, most of the time i just assumed the noises were other people on the property. I had never experienced anything supernatural there, just you know scared cause of the circumstances of what could happen. One of the last times I was there I brought my crowbar because the state had started boarding up and welding doors shut. So here I am, trying to pry open a small enough gap in between these two doors. (there was a good 6 inch space between them where it was open). After a few tries, I'm getting pretty aggravated, saying to myself "is this worth it?!" it was a pretty well light night, the moon was really bright so I didn't need my flash light unless I was inside a building, also didn't use it because of the risk of alerting security. So, I'm peering through these two doors down this hall with my flash light, and about 50 feet down the hallway it looked like some light dust came into view. So the dust entered where my flash light was aimed and then suddenly IT turned. I could see the cloudy, barely visible outline of an chest, shoulders and head. Nothing else. As it turned, I can still vividly remember of what appeared to be the ghostly misty outline of shoulders and head moving towards the flashlight. So as any person would, I ran away and screamed. Never had been so scared in my life. zackthegiant

Lights out!

A light. I was alone on a forested, snow covered mountain and there was a bright light just sitting in the middle of the trail. It was there all night. In the morning there was nothing there. Booksnotpeople

Rumor has It!

It would help if I had pictures to explain the setting here, but I used to fish at an abandoned house's pond near my home. Next to that property was a wealthy neighborhood of about six houses (mansions). One day while getting off the bus, I saw a black Mercedes with fully tinted windows, which is rare in New Jersey, sitting in the driveway of the pond house. I found it odd, and was kind of sad because I thought I'd never get to fish there again.

The next day, I found out the man who lived at the end of the wealthy neighborhood had been shot in the head while he slept. Rumor has it he was involved in the mafia. I believe those rumors. joenastyness207

Monkey See - Monkey Do! 

My mom and I were driving through rural Missouri late one night. It was dark and hard to see much beyond the headlights. All of a sudden something scampered (yes, scampered) across the road in front of our car. We didn't hit it but when it got to the other side of the road (on the shoulder) it sat up on its hind legs, turned around, and looked directly at us. It had a long, thin tail - too thin to be a fox tail, too big in general to be a squirrel or possum. To this day we both swear it was a monkey. People don't believe us but the way it turned back and looked at us once it got to the other side of the road was so chilling and human-like. Based on the size, shape, and movement it could only be a monkey. luxemlady

Not the Mask....

Giphy

I was about four to six years old and my mother was telling me to get ready for bed. I remember hopping on the bed and going straight for the window. I pulled open the curtains dramatically. I was face to face with a giant fly/moth head. Its face was staring straight at me and was huge. Almost like a mask pulled over someone's head. I became hysterical trying to express what I saw and was told it was my imagination. Now, this was in the window to the backyard. Our house was on a foundation above ground so that window was 10 feet off the ground. It's been over 17 years and I remember that creatures staring back and the sheer horror of its eyes. Can't bring myself to look out of windows at night. KillJoyKween

Lock it and Run! 

My mom used to always yell at me to close the pantry door and one day when i was home alone I got a snack and left the door open,as i was walking away the door slammed shut and i heard a voice say "close it" quietly but intensely. I swear i literally grabbed my dog and ran faster than i ever have before up to my room and locked the door... let's just say I literally will never forget to shut that damn door. itsochloe

Help Me Harry! 

A white, smiling face at my window as I was laying down for bed. My mother checked all around, and there was nothing. But I swear to God, I saw it and it was a person. She still teases me about it from time to time.

I should add that it was glowing as if it were a light source. And it had no nose I can remember, just slits like a snake. Eyes had no color, just black pupils. Its mouth was wider than any human's. No hair, either. And the height from the ground to my window is about eight feet, and it was at perfect eye level.

May have been Voldemort. Many people have asked, so that is my answer. However, I highly doubt it for obvious reasons. NightKnight909

I know what I saw....

I saw a UFO with my mother in Oregon one night. We were traveling when I spotted a triangle shape in the sky, formed by 5 bright lights. We stopped the car, get out and look, and it's just hovering there, silent with no movement. I should have taken pictures or a video but I was so caught up in the moment because I couldn't make out what I was seeing. Out of nowhere, this thing shot off to the horizon, faster than any man-made machine.. We both remember clear as day, however very few people believe our story. ButSheLooked18

be safe out there....

I watched a stabbing. Both guys ran right after so I had no proof. I never found out what happened to them but no one believed I saw a random assault, even though I was in the worst neighborhood. bacchuss89

In the Moonlight....

Giphy

Me and a few friends were walking on a paved recreational trail near a river back when we were teenagers, at night, of course. I happened to see a dark shadow in some bushes off to the side of us, and when I realized it was big enough to be more than just a cut down tree stump, I looked back and saw two eyes gleaming in the moonlight and then the shadow tried to hunch down further into the bushes.

Considering there are plenty of sexual assaults on this trail, I had felt safe in a group. But yeah as soon as I saw that we all took off sprinting for our buddy's house. Pretty sure we ran about a 6 minute mile that night, and I've got asthma. Seventy_x_7

The car is ALIVE!!!

Driving home from work one night and I am approaching a stop light. Suddenly I hear scratching on my roof similar to the sound dogs make of wooden floors. Then my passenger window rolls itself down, the outer portion of my passenger armrest breaks off like someone put too much force on it, and my passenger air bag light off light turns off like there is someone sitting there. Demons I tell you. DragonFuhrer

Driving with mom....

I once saw my sister drive past me in my mum's car (it was a really obvious red little car and I'd never seen anyone else drive one in our small town of that make and model). I could see my sister clearly, and thought it really weird that she didn't stop as I had phoned a few minutes earlier to get a ride home. She drove past me and up the street.

The moment the car with my sister driving turned the corner, I looked back the other direction, and my mum then turned the corner of the opposite end of the street and pulled up in front of me. My sister wasn't even in the car. There was no possible way the car could have teleported 300m in the opposite direction to what it was driving in half a second anyway (let alone the fact a different person was now driving). I was so scared that as soon as I got home I told my sister to never drive along that street alone if she could avoid it. My sister could tell I was serious, but I still don't think she believed me. It happened like 25 years ago now, but I don't ever tell people because it is both unbelievable and mundane sounding at the same time (unless you were there). I still don't understand what happened. aartadventure

REDDIT

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Dogs and Chocolate

Giphy

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.
