People Reveal What Is "So Bad That It's Good"

People get a sick satisfaction out of watching bad movies.

The "so bad it's good" mentality has permeated millennial culture. It provides some sort of nostalgia, or else it brings joy to watch something flounder so unknowingly.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Well, let's dive in a little.

u/Enigmatic_Rage asked:

What are some examples of "So bad it's good"?

Here were some of those answers.

Flip Flop Round The Clock

Young children's sports, specifically ice hockey. Little kids flopping all over the ice is one of the most entertaining things that I've ever seen.


Some years ago a few friends and myself were drinking at a bar downtown, looking for something to do. I mentioned that I had seen signs and posters for "Friday Nights Fights" our small town convention center. We pay our tab, and take the five minute walk and pay our fee to get in.

It was 5 year olds "boxing". Yeah, they had boxing gloves and headgear on, but it was so far removed from boxing. It was weird, and I felt like we were the only people there not related to anyone waiting to get into the ring.


The Nipple Costumes, Though

Batman & Robin. Although it's undeniably the worst Batman movie of all time, it's also the most hilarious.


The Tim Burton style Batman movies were my childhood Batman, plus a huge section of the six flags I'd go to as a kid was designed in theme other the movie, we had a Joker, Batman and a Mr. Freeze and the whole section was done up in the industrial gothic noir style, and there was a villains cafe with posters from the movie!


Bad, But Not Plagiarized

The Legend of Rah and the Muggles. It's a children's book, and an utter failure in every way. The author tried to sue JK Rowling for ripping her off but failed, and was fined $50,000 for wasting the court's time. The judge even pointed out that her book makes no sense (the muggles are magical elves about 18 inches tall, yet they're shown riding insects). It sold no copies when it was first printed. And it's absolutely god-awful. I found a summary online, and it's filled with plot holes. I also found a free sample on the author's website, which is the prologue. It pretty much just explains the lore behind the muggles. And before you read the next paragraph, keep in mind that these are magical elves who enjoy croquet, look like babies and basically act like you'd expect from characters aimed at the 5-8 year old crowd.

Here's their backstory: The one world government known as C.O.U.P. prevented international war for years, but their abuse of eminent domain laws to enrich the upper classes led to revolution. As countries around the world sought to break away from the government's control, nuclear warfare became inevitable. Rebellions meant to bring freedom brought only violence and slaughter. In one country, Aura, the rich left on massive ships, with those too late to get on board throwing ropes over the side in a desperate attempt to climb to safety. The ropes were cut, leaving them to die in the ocean. Those who remained on Aura--the old, the weak, the poor--were left behind to die in a nuclear apocalypse. Some survived, and their descendants became the Muggles.

This is the first chapter to a children's book. And it only gets worse from there.


In The Merry Old Land Of Oz

Australian reality shows- namely the ones they throw on Netflix and Hulu (Instant hotel, Married at first sight, etc), they're atrocious but in a way that makes watching them a guilty pleasure.


Stripped Expectations

Amazon Prime has a surprisingly deep pool of B movies from the 80s. My all-time favorite is called Stripped to Kill. It's an edge-of-your-seat thriller about a lady cop who goes undercover as a stripper to catch a killer targeting the stripper community.

This movie has everything you could ever want.

- Strippers who are very intense about their costume changes and interpretive dance routines

- Lesbians

- High-waisted 80s underpants

- The guy from "My Two Dads" that wasn't Paul Reiser

- a twist ending you'll see coming for miles

Do yourself this favor.


Troll 2, Duh

You don't appreciate how f*cking terrible this movie is until you watch the documentary about it called Best Worst Movie.


The movie, Troll 2, has no trolls.

It is not a sequel.

It was written by an Italian woman who did not speak much English to mock her sanctimonious vegetarian friends.

The main character is a first time child actor, which is not so bad in itself. But the other male lead, the father of the main character, showed up to the set believing he would be an extra. He was a dentist, and was given one of the main roles in the film.

There were literal mental patients cast in the film, on release from a nearby psychiatric hospital. One described his intense desire to actually murder the child cast as the lead in the film during filming. The documentarian is the child actor, so the mental patient is telling this to the child he wished to kill, but no longer recognizes.

There is a scene where the most spirited actress in the film fellates a corn cob, which then pops, presumably from the raw sexual energy.

The director of the film appears in the documentary because he hears Troll 2 is being viewed in America in theaters, and believes it means the public is finally understanding the genius of the movie. He joins a tour of the US, to find that the movie has gained a cult following due to its staggering failure in every aspect of filmmaking, and becomes increasingly irritated as the documentary chronicles his US Tour.

It's truly insane how bad this movie is. These facts do not begin to capture the failures in acting, directing, writing, casting, cinematography, wardrobe, special effects, and that special "it" factor that good movies have.


Don't You Make Fun Of Descendants

Me and my friends found this Disney original movie called Descendants. It's about the hip cool edgy teenage children of all the Disney hero's and villains going to high school together and it's just as bad as it sounds.

I love it

Everything from the dubstep musical numbers to the awful timing for songs is great. Highly recommend checking it out for a good laugh.


Seven Minutes In Short Short Heaven

The 1980 film "Can't Stop the Music."

It's a fictionalize retelling of the creation of The Village People and stars a pre-transition Kaitlin Jenner and Steve Gutenberg. It's the gayest movie I've ever seen and it's incredible. The opening scene is Steve Gutenberg quitting his job at a record store because he wants to "make music." He then roller-skates through mid-town Manhattan, in short-shorts, for the seven minute opening credits.

(FUN SIDE BAR: At the same time a highly controversial film starring Al Pacino in which he plays an NYPD detective going undercover at gay S&M bars to find a serial killer was being filmed. Protesters for the film saw Steve Gutenberg and said "THERE'S THE GAY MOVIE!" and protested it by mistake.)

I could talk for hours about this movie because it just gets crazier the longer its on and it's over 2 hours long.

I f*cking love it so much.


Ebony Darkness Dementia Raven Way

My Immortal. Worst fanfiction ever. You have to see it to understand it. The fanfic can be found here, but I personally recommend that you watch a dramatic reading on Youtube. Here's my favorite.


That Redbox Life

I'm pretty late so I doubt many people will see this, but there was this movie I got from Redbox one time and I can't remember the name for the life of me.

It was this movie about this ex-Civil War solider in the 1870's trying to avenge the death of his family, and man was it bad.

I'm talking emotionless acting, I'm talking lighting so unprofessional I'm pretty sure they used flashlights for some scenes, I'm talking seeing doors that lead off of the set in the background, I'm talking our 1870's protagonist wearing a pink wrist watch in some scenes.

There was also a scene in the beginning of the movie where it jumped from like 1865 to 1872 or something and instead of just showing 1872 on the screen it had to show 1865, 1866, 1867, etc floating across the screen with like each year getting a solid 10-15 seconds of screen time


Some Sort Of Fantasy Erotica Idk

The Eye of Argon.

It's a book that... You really need to read (preferable out loud) to be able to fully comprehend. Pro tip: Get some friends together and take turns to read it out loud.

Here's a taste of what to expect: "Grignr slipped his right hand to his thigh, concealing a small opague object beneath the folds of the g-string wrapped about his waist. Brine wells swelled in Grignr's cold , jade squinting eyes, which grown accustomed to the gloom of the stygian pools of ebony engulfing him, were bedazzled and blinded by flickerering radiance cast forth by the second soldiers's resin torch."


Real Life Blockblister


Turkey has apparently been remaking American movies for years and they are AMAZING. At least the couple that I've seen. They're not in English, or even subtitled, so you only have the visuals to go on. My favorite was the Star Wars rip off, that featured "Luke" training by running around, jumping and kicking, with giant boulders tied to his ankles. There's a part where someone gives him a shirt to wear with peekaboo mesh circles to display his nipples and a scene where he karate chops a muppet hard enough to take off both of the muppet's arms and then uses those arms to beat the muppet to death.

It also features footage and music just straight stolen - as his x-wing flies off in the beginning, there's footage of the death star exploding, and music playing that...was familiar...but sounded somehow just wrong in the context of Star Wars....what is it, what is it? Oh, it's the Indiana Jones theme music!

These are fantastic to watch with a couple of friends and a couple of beers.


Yum, Greasy

A movie called "The Greasy Strangler" Executive Producers: Elijah Wood.

Found it one drunk night on a friend's Kubo (Kudi? Kudo? Amazon fire stick, with pirate software), and if it wasn't for the fact I can't pan-fry burgers, see/smell Evan Williams without wanting to vomit, or watched it that second time, I'd think I made it up.

If you find it. Save it, and spend a week preparing yourself. It's like, Relfux from Incredibles 2, with a Ron Jeremy Penis, meets 50's C sci-fi and Freaky Eaters.


Giant Space Monsters

Godzilla vs Space Godzilla. It's freaking terrible, but has one of the best lines I've ever heard.

"Captain; we've eliminated all other possibilities. It MUST be some sort of GIANT SPACE MONSTER!"

Like, what tests are you running? I want to see the diagnosis tree, you really eliminated everything except some sort of giant space monster? It's a very strange test result, both vague and oddly specific.


Ouch This Just Came For Us All

Kingdom Hearts. Looking at it as an outsider, it's a bunch of weirdly dressed Final Fantasy characters fighting alongside an equally oddly dressed Mickey Mouse, on an adventure to stop a bald old man whose shoved his heart in a bunch of people. Also Keyblades. Every sentence must include; Hearts, friendship, light, darkness, Organization 13, Heartless, Nobodies, or any combination. I think it's only survived this long from the great music and decent gameplay some of the earlier games had. Thankfully the writing has at least improved in KH3, so it might be a sign it'll improve even more later on, but some shit is just downright cringey in past games. I still love it though, but that might just be nostalgia blindness and a love for Disney.


Ain't No Bad Like 80s Bad

There is an 80's comic out there called Brute Force that Marvel made in hopes to sell toys. It's the 80's kind of bad, and it's amazing. Basically the premise is that a man takes some wild animals and gives them robotic enhancements as well as enhanced knowledge, so that they can fight large companies that threaten the environment. It unfortunately only got 4 issues, but it has some awesome and stupid moments.


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.

- RazerWolf04

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.

- FormalMango


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.

- CorrectionalChard

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.

- Skrivus

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.

- Dskee02

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.

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"



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.
