People Admit To The Creepiest Thing They've Ever Done Without Getting Caught.

Whether we'd like to admit it or not, we've all done something creepy at some point in our lives. Here, people share the creepiest thing they've ever done without getting caught.


1. In college I hid in my friend's closet when he was on his way back from class so I could scare him when he came in. He arrived with a female and they immediately ripped off their clothes and started having sex. I was too afraid to leave so I watched them go at it three separate times over a period of about 2 hours.


2. I hid under my bed as a potential home buyer looked at my house.

I was younger and loved being a "spy." My mom told me someone was coming to look at the house at 3. So instead of going somewhere like I usually did, I hid under my bed as this bald guy and the real estate agent wandered my house.


3. I was walking through a park and got tired (nasty motorcycle wreck, both knees shot to hell but working on them) near one of the kid's areas. I sat on the nearest bench facing the playground, and a typical thin 'n' snippy pilates mom sits down next to me and tries to make small talk despite the fact that I look like a cartoon super villain.

"So which one is yours?" she asks.

I stare into the play area and say "Whichever one gets in my van first."

I intended to defuse the situation through humor and make small talk but my instincts said to flee, so I did.


4. A group of friends and I thought it was hilarious to be intentionally creepy to this one dude we knew who thought he was way too cool to acknowledge us.

We had met him at various metal gigs, he was a big player in "the scene". He thought the world of himself and was quite open about his disdain for us mere mortals.

Anyway, we would make an effort to go places we knew he'd be and act overly familiar and friendly. Always open our eyes a bit too wide while smiling. Stare at him from across the room and when he made eye contact, smile and slowly nod. General creep behaviour.

So the point where we got too carried away was when we snuck into his house (front door was open), stole the icecream out of the freezer, took pictures of the container and contents and then snuck back in to replace it.

Then we created a new email address to email the pictures of his ice cream to him, along with "You're sweet and cool" and other weird compliments.

We thought it was funny and we were doing it to be deliberately weird. He got a bit spooked and posted all over Facebook that he was calling the police and getting the house forensically tested.

Well that obviously never happened. I'm still free to roam the streets.

No one is too cool to acknowledge us. NO ONE.


5. My daughter takes pictures of herself posing with me and her father while we sleep. We don't even know until we find the pictures days later.

6. An old female friend of mine had come down to visit and we ended up staying in a hotel that night. My friend who also knew her showed up unexpectedly and we all had a great time. A few hours went by and he was assumed to be passed out drunk on the bed so we payed him no mind.

She and I then proceeded to have drunk sex while my bud was passed out on the bed next to us. When we started getting into it we heard love songs coming off of my phone. Turns out he wasn't passed out, he was listening to music on my phone while watching us have sex, then decided that he should set the mood by playing love songs he found on YouTube.


7. In high school my girlfriend invited me over to a house she was babysitting at after the kids went to sleep. We were involved in a serious make out session on the parents bed and only partially clothed when they parents came home early. She ran into the bathroom and I jumped into the closet but I realize my pants were still across the room on the other side of the bed.

Soon after she came out of the bathroom I heard them thanking her and then the father told her he would drive her home because she didn't have a car. She was terrified and didn't know what to do so she left with him. I found myself semi-naked in the parents' closet and alone in the house with the mom and the sleeping kids. I was terrified.

The closet had the shutter type doors that you could partially see out of so I could see the mom start to get undressed and get ready for bed. It was starting to look like the beginning of a long night that was sure to end in either me being arrested or shot.

When it seemed like all hope was lost she went into the bathroom and shut the door. Seeing my opportunity, I leaped out of the closest, grabbed my pants and ran out the back door.

To this day I don't know why I went out the back door but I did. I crawled over a six foot high block wall and landed in the neighbor's yard still clutching my pants. I had to hop several other walls before I was able to get back to my car and tear out of their like the Dukes of Hazzard.


8. My ex and I banged in an elevator and I was holding down the close door button. When we finished and the doors opened, there was a group of people waiting to get on.


9. I masturbated under a blanket in the backseat of my parents sedan while on a road trip with them. My parents were constantly talking to each other during the trip, but suddenly they got really quiet when I came. I still don't know if they knew what was happening and frankly I'm afraid to ask.


10. I was supposed to go out with my friend but there was a deadline on her leaving without me, and I missed it. So when I arrive to her empty home, without premeditating or even thinking all that much on it, I decide it would be fun to hop the back gate and go in through the back door.

Inside I just want to do something generically creepy, so I picked out a couple outfits from her closet and laid them on the bed. That's all I moved.

I also read a stack of letters I found, which turned out to be a vampire fantasy novel she was writing in letter format. I read them, memorized bits, and then weeks later started calling her saying I woke up from strangest dream with the intense urge to speak to her, and then describing bits of her novel as if I'd dreamed it.

11. When I was 5, I left my bedroom at night on a "covert" ops mission to kidnap my sister's barbies from her room. I brought them back to my room and dismembered them on my toy chest.

I then wrapped them in my dirty underwear. A pair for every lady. I tucked the barbie corpses under my bed, waiting till morning, and buried them in the backyard.


12. I like looking into peoples houses at night. Just when I am walking my dogs - I don't go out just to do it. I like seeing how other people live I guess.

It is winter here for 8 months a year so I wear my parka with the hood up. It is furry so I can turn my head and look through the fur. This way it looks as if I am facing forward even if I am staring right at you. That innocuous looking girl walking by? She is watching you watching her. She is watching you argue with your wife. She is watching.....


13. When I was 14 I had a crush on a guy. So naturally I systematically stalked him through our enormous high school by taking different hallways every day to class and remembering the time and location of when I sighted him and altering my schedule and routes until I "bumped into" him close to a dozen times a day.

He asked me out, we giggled and I had my first kiss and we dated for 2+ years. I'm well adjusted now I swear.


14. 7th grade:

I asked a girl who had a crush on me what making a heart in the air with her fingers to her friend across the room meant. She was stunned, really.

I didn't turn around, didn't ask anyone about it, just knew.. because I had a watch that had chrome in it, acting as a mirror.

I love that watch.


15. When I was 16, my neighbors went out of town and I had to let take their dog out a few times a day and feed him. One time, I got nosy and snooped around the house. Going through drawers, peeking at unmentionables, etc. I let the dog back in then went home and realized I didn't have their keys anymore.

Dilemma: They were coming back the next day. If I left the keys on the counter, no biggie. If I left them on their dresser in their bedroom, I'd have some explaining to do.

So I called my friend over and we planned our first breaking and entering caper. We grabbed a steak knife, and I boosted him onto the roof. He cut two small slits to be able to pop the pins on the screen. We got lucky that the window was unlocked. He put the screen back in and found the keys on the counter.

16. My mom had knee replacement surgery a couple years ago and was on really strong painkillers for awhile. The first couple of nights she was home, I stayed up all night so I'd be there if she needed something.

I was worried about the painkillers she was taking and was worried she was going to stop breathing in her sleep (I'm paranoid, okay?!) so I'd stand over her in the dark just to make sure she was still alive. Like, completely Paranormal Activity style. Thankfully she never woke up to see me standing next to her bed like a total creeper.


17. My girlfriend was showering, and I decided to try to sneak in. I don't know why, but it seemed liked the funniest idea in the world at the time. I picked those dumb bathroom locks, got to the shower, opened the curtain, and I climbed in.

Well, there I was, directly behind her, and she still hadn't noticed. At this point I realized I'd made a terrible mistake. I wanted to retreat, but now I was too scared of getting caught to even move.

She turned around, saw me, and started shrieking and shrieking like I've never heard before and hope never to hear again.

So yeah, I got caught in the end. But it was so much worse because I got caught much later than expected.


18. I was able to hack into my ex-girlfriend's Gmail account and monitor her emails. Also used info to gain access to her Facebook. Still have nudes and seen sexts she sent. Was awesome till I found out she had sex with my brother.


19. My friend used to think this girl named Hannah, who was in my Holocaust studies class, was really hot, so I took pictures of her (without her knowing) and sent them to him during the entire class. She never knew. And it happened every week.


20. When I was a kid I was playing hide and seek at a friend's house. Hid in the towel closet in the bathroom.

Cue friend's mom. Comes in for a quick piss the whole time of which I'm just like "this is how I die." She cleans up, washes hands, and leaves. I wait two full minutes, sneak out and find new hiding place. All is well.

21. When I was in third grade, we were walking in line, and the girl that I liked a whole lot was walking in front of me. With the stealth of a thousand ninjas... I leaned forward and gently licked her hair. I don't know what compelled me to do so, but it totally happened.


22. I used to piss in the bathroom soap dispensers of my summer school every Friday when I was in the 6th grade.


23. Close female friend came over for drinks, which led to hot tub time (with her boyfriend and my girlfriend all present). She changed into a bathing suit in the common bathroom. I went to use the bathroom, saw her clothes and thong on the floor. Definitely sniffed her thong.


24. I was taking a steamy shower in a communal college residence when someone on the toilet leaves and shuts off the lights, leaving me in pitch dark at the moment my chronic nose bleeding starts up. In a decidedly pissed moment, I smeared blood all over my hands and drew a rather sizeable smiley in red on the tile wall and left it there.


25. When I was sick with colds as a kid, I would sneak my dirty tissue into people's (mostly my mom's) pockets. More disgusting than creepy; I'd have made a good pickpocket.

26. I went deep sea fishing with my friends for senior skip day and bought a pack of frozen squid. We never ended up using them because the fishing company provided clams for bait. Later that day I went to go throw the squid in a pond down the street from my house and instead nailed them to a bunch of trees where a bunch of teenage stoners who frequent in my neighborhood smoked. Took them a month to rot away and the smell was awful.


27. Had a crush on my professor so I did a few hours of sleuthing. I found her online handles and read through her entire live journal, tracked her movement on foursquare and map my run, read her tweets hoping one day it would mention her students (me), photoshopped weird pictures of her and a boyfriend (mouth swaps, skin tone changes, etc), checked out her eBay purchase history, and eventually ended up with her fathers phone number.


28. My friend secretly filmed me for a year and I never realized it until he showed me the compiled footage for my birthday.


29. My girlfriend lived at my familys house for months without my parents or sister finding 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


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.

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

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.

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.

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.

- shicole3



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.

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.

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.

Shower Schedule

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


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.

But ... Ice Floats

Waiter/Host here.

Woman wanted ice on the bottom of her drink.

Now read that sentence again and try to imagine arguing with that particular brand of stupid.

Time Zones Exist

Coworker claimed that it was the same time of day and the same season on the whole globe. Had to get 4 coworkers to confirm to him that time zones do in fact exist.

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"



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

Andre 2000?


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.


Balloon to Heaven

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.

And 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.


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.



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.




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.



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.



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


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


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.



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.
