People Share Which Building They'd Snoop Around If They Wouldn't Get Caught
People Share Which Building They'd Snoop Around If They Wouldn't Get Caught
I remember being a kid in elementary school. I was convinced the teacher's lounge must have been some magical room with all the answers to everything, arcade games, soda machines, etc. This became a weird sort of fixation - to the point that in fifth grade I just couldn't handle it anymore and stuck my head in. All I saw was beige tile and seating that offered sadly little lumbar support. That was okay, it didn't deter me. I was convinced that was the front room and that there was some sort of teacher speakeasy in the back.
Spoiler Alert: I ended up working at that same school briefly as an adult. Sadly, no speakeasy. Just sad beige tiles and hard seating. Totally a vending machine in the corner, though, so I'm celebrating the small victory for my 8 year-old self.
The desire to know what's happening in places you're not supposed to be is pretty natural. It can also be pretty consuming if you let yourself run with the curiosity too far. One Reddit user asked:
You're given a search warrant for any building in the world. You have 8hrs to snoop/explore, though you can't take anything. What building do you choose?
Yeah all of the Indiana Jones's and Nicolas Cage's came out of the woodworks for this one. There were a few places here that we didn't even knew existed! Click next and let's explore.
Vatican's Secret Archives. Lemme at 'em! People think the Vatican is open since they let students study in there and they are in the process of scanning all the documents to make them available to the public... but there are secret documents. Canon Law _requires _a secret archive. I was a secretary at an archdiocese. I was told that, "anything that could ruin the reputation of a priest goes in there."
Can. 489 §1. In the diocesan curia there is also to be a secret archive, or at least in the common archive there is to be a safe or cabinet, completely closed and locked, which cannot be removed; in it documents to be kept secret are to be protected most securely.
§2. Each year documents of criminal cases in matters of morals, in which the accused parties have died or ten years have elapsed from the condemnatory sentence, are to be destroyed. A brief summary of what occurred along with the text of the definitive sentence is to be retained.
Can. 490 §1. Only the bishop is to have the key to the secret archive.
Rivers Of Flowing Mercury
The tomb chamber of the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, Xi'an. Barred from archaeological study, it is said to be protected by deadly traps and contains a room with a scale model of the empire with rivers of flowing mercury and treasures.
Sallie Mae server room. The question says you can't take anything, but it didn't say you couldn't accidentally spill some 2-liters on a few server racks. You're welcome, everyone with student loans.
Boring-As-Hell Office Building
If anyone says the Pentagon, I swear to god it's just a boring-as-hell office building. I've worked in the Pentagon on different projects. The building is a bunch of offices with cubicles, where programs of different types take place. Much of it is financial and administrative offices. They have a few of the "neat" rooms you guys are thinking about, but most of the building is blah.
I was in a top secret clearance room in the basement recently to install some color changing lights in the ceiling so they could look cooler on video teleconference calls. The pentagon is boring as s*.
15 Year Old
The 15 year old boy in me will say Playboy Mansion. I always imagined it as being a From what I heard the Playboy Mansion is actually thoroughly unimpressive and it is apparently in dire need of a complete renovation. Buuuuuuuuut it's got Playboy Bunnies, so... yeah.
Scientologists Calling For Help
Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater, Florida. Police receive hundreds of 911 calls from the hotel, but it's owned and run by Scientologists and the police are denied access almost every time.
In 1997, Clearwater police received over 160 emergency calls from the Fort Harrison Hotel, but they were denied entry into the hotel by Scientology security. Clearwater police are suspicious about the number of 911 calls that come from rooms at the Fort Harrison Hotel. Police respond to each call only to be told most of the time by Scientology security guards that the call was a mistake. Police are not allowed to check individual rooms where the calls originated.
Scientology officials say most of the calls are mistakes that occur when foreign visitors try to dial the international access code, 011, after dialing a 9 to get an outside line. They claim they are working with police to resolve the problem.
Checking For Clogs
My upstairs neighbor's apartment.
I swear they wear wooden clogs for bedtime slippers.
I wanna check.
There's a chapel in Ethiopia that claims to have the actual Ark of the Covenant. It's a tiny building, though, so I'd only need like two minutes to see if they actually do.
The weird thing is, that chapel only has 1 person inside and anyone could climb the old fence around it. Either no-one believes it's actually there, or something stops people from looking. You could literally just walk right in if you wanted to. I've talked to Ethiopian immigrants about it, and its definitely something a large amount of people believe.
Sure it might be practically unguarded and just sitting right there, but I wouldn't go trying to jump the fence and look inside. You are liable to never leave the island although likely from being beaten to death more than any curses.
Blast From The Past
Can it be from the past? Library of Alexandria. I'd bring a camera with me. The burning of the library of Alexandria will always be one of the greatest tragedies in human history. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of knowledge that was lost.
Deadly, But Cool
Assuming I had a radiation suit... the Chernobyl reactor. Deadly. But cool. The elephant's foot is this blob of stuff that oozed out of the reactor during the meltdown. It's so radioactive that just standing near it can kill you. But not like "you'll die younger" or "you'll die in a few months" - like just a few seconds next to it and you will drop dead inside of two days. I don't even want to imagine what could happen if you were near it for a few hours. And it's not even that big, or imposing. It doesn't glow or anything like that. It's just there. Doing nothing. It's just a pile of muck that no one can take a quality photo of and it can kill you basically instantly. It'll be radioactive for a hundred thousand years.
You could stand near it and drop dead and never know why. Deadly, but cool.
The research facility at Skinwalker Ranch. Its under 24 hour armed guard and surrounded by motion detecting cameras so I really don't think that it's just a cattle farm. It has this website of all these various "interdimensional beings" that have been seen on it. So you'd think it would be active all the time, right?
But I have a friend that lived just down the road from that "ranch". She said lots of local boys would see how long they could stand up against the front fence at night before getting creeped out. She also said nothing ever happened there and it was pretty dead. I still want to go and see it for myself though just to say I have been there
Giant Three-Headed Corgi
The queen's palace to be honest. I wanna know what secret places she has in that palace of hers... but I'm scared I'll get killed by the giant three-headed corgi before getting close to anything exciting.
Chef Boyardee headquarters. Gonna get that formula.
Moscow metro. There are more than 200% more track there than the map shows. It's already huge, I can't even fathom what three times bigger really means. It was built to be also a bunker against war threats or apocalypses, its an entire underworld.
A lot of people are saying the White House, but nobody's said Trump's apartment in Trump Tower or his Mar-a-Lago resort. Check out the New York AG's lawsuit against the Trump Foundation. He wrote on a piece of paper to use foundation money to pay off a settlement. I know this is an opinion article, but the photo at the beginning is the document I'm referencing. He'd be stupid enough to have incriminating documents in plain sight.
For The Views
Whichever building would give me the most views in a video titled "OMG SPENT THE NIGHT AT 'building' ALMOST GOT CAUGHT HAHA LOL THIS WAS CRAZY"
The Google Slide
I'd honestly choose Google Plex. I mean, area 51 may have aliens and all, but do they have a slide to go down floors?
One Bad Joke.
Hangar 18. I was working with the local Fairborn gov't to produce some community videos. Coordinated with the Air Force PR people to get on base to get some video for the project. I'm being driven around the landing field on a golf-cart, my guide pointing out various aircraft, buildings or scenes I may want to feature in the video.
Having spent time working in Roswell I was familiar with the woo connections and I jokingly ask my driver which one was Hanger 18. He glared at me, shook his head, turned the cart around, took me back to his office and waited (without answering any of my questions) for a security team to escort me off-base. No one spoke a word, I was just told to leave and if I tried to come back I'd be arrested.
While I was joking before, now I really really do want to know which it was and what they keep in and under that hanger.
Open The Snake Doors
The Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in India. It's a Hindu temple that's covered completely in gold, and it had several vaults full of trillions of dollars worth of treasure that have only just now been opened and inventoried. But there is one vault that still isn't opened, with a metal door with giant snakes on it, and it is said that opening it would be a very bad omen and would bring down the wrath of the gods. Just exploring the rest of the temple would be a once in a lifetime opportunity, but if this scenario means that I can also somehow magically be teleported behind that vault door, then it's even more worthwhile.
I couldn't even begin to speculate. Vault B is the largest vault yet it remains unopened. It's speculated to hold some 1.8 billion US dollars worth of treasures. In the other 5 vaults, there were all sorts of treasures. Gold, jewels, jewelry, solid gold statues several feet tall, even a solid gold throne encrusted with diamonds and other rare minerals that was meant for a god. Back in the 1930's raiders tried to break in but they were scared off by venomous snakes that came in droves out of no where. Another time someone tried to get in, it was the temple authorities trying to gain access to the chamber during a famine, but they claimed to have heard the ocean from behind the door, and fearing that the vault was connected to the Red Sea, they left it alone. Some people believe it's a god behind the door.
Whatever it is, it will forever tempt my curiosity until that door is opened, if ever.
Just Making Things Weird
You never said the hours had to be consecutive. I'll take the warrant to my neighbor's house. I'm not going to look through anything. I just want to go to the bathroom whenever I want and really make their life weird.
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 LikeGiphy
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 ArnoldGiphy
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.
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 ExistenceGiphy
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.
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.
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
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 _____?"
"no, it's red"
"YOU CANT EVEN KNOW"
It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.
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.
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.
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.
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 ChocolateGiphy
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.
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.
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 MultitudeGiphy
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.
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.
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.
