Horrified People Describe The Worst Nightmares They've Ever Had.


Our brains can cook up some pretty horrifying stuff while we're asleep. Fortunately, nightmares aren't real. But that doesn't mean they don't feel real.

These people shared the nightmares they've never forgotten - and they're a combination of weird, funny, and a whole lot of creepy.



As a child I used to have a recurring nightmare in which the old guy on the Lipton tea box would hold me down and pour cups of hot tea on me. Sounds kind of silly now but at 7 years old I was pretty freaked out about it. It was worsened by the fact that my mom kept the box of tea in plain sight on the counter and I was too embarrassed to tell my mom the sight of him scared the heck out of me.

Well this is recurring, so anyways I'm in a field with a tree at the other end. I start to walk closer to the tree and start to realize there is a young girl standing at the base of this tree, the closer I get, I start to notice that the girl is covered in blood and scars, and when I get even closer more blood and scars appear, she is screaming at me while keeping eye contact. She then proceeds to chase me shouting that it's my fault. I get to the bottom of the field where her parents are standing there holding each other, both also covered in blood and scars and saying "all you had to do was to look after her" at this point I always wake up. Pretty terrifying.

I had a nightmare where I had wings and could fly but it wasn't a fun flying dream. It was dark, I was flying over the ocean and I was being chased by some other flying people.

I suddenly fell out of the sky and woke up just before I hit the water.

I lay awake in my dark bedroom absolutely terrified and I could feel an evil presence in the room. I tried to scream but it just came out as a low moan. Turns out I was still dreaming and suffering from sleep paralysis.

I eventually willed myself into waking up and spent the rest of the day feeling very uneasy and disturbed by the whole thing. The ocean has given me the creeps ever since.

Not fun at all.

I walk into my grandma's kitchen and she is on the floor, severed at the waist and bleeding & yelling. I look up and a really leggy Kermit the Frog has stuck my grandma's legs in a huge boiling pot on the stove top. He turns around and looks at me and says with a bloody frog grin, "WERE HAVING GRANDMA LEGS TONIGHT!" and laughs while my grandma screams in pain.

It was weird because I've never even eaten frog legs.

Woke up in my bed but couldn't move except look around. So I look around and see someone sit by The end of my bed. A guy with the "devils" shape. He held my leg and I tried to get away and scream but nothing could come out. He opened his mouth and screamed while holding my leg with a strong grip. Then I woke up in my dark but empty room.

I was running across a frozen-over ocean filled with human corpses. I suddenly heard a blood-curdling shriek, turned around, and found my self face to face with a skeletal, flaming llama. A LLAMA. It walked slowly up to me (somehow not melting the ice around it), and then whispered in my ear a single sentence: "TIME TO JOIN THE OTHERS." The worst part? It had Morgan Freeman's voice. It then made the same freak nazgul noise and chased me for the rest of the dream.

Sknib_Raj_Raj

A nightmare that my son was kidnapped. I was running around frantically trying to find him, or find leads. I was terrified and desperate. Also, an overwhelming sense of guilt that it was somehow my fault, that I hadn't been careful enough. Woke up hyperventilating, and had to fight the urge to go wake him up, hug him, and hear his voice. I actually felt anxious and a little depressed for days after that dream because it was so realistic.

I have had a recurring dream that my penis just falls off and I'm scrambling to find a way to put it back in place.

Kibbles2003

I had a nightmare where a guy was eating ketchup straight from a bottle with a really long finger. So creepy.

Big12foot123

I had a nightmare where I coughed up a lung in the shower. First I coughed really hard, then I choked on it as it pushed its way out, and then the fear and panic of watching it lie there in a puddle of blood but being unable to scream.

6Sungods

I was just starting puberty and was learning about my breast developing. I dreamt that my breasts started growing really fast. They got really REALLY big. When they reached the size of my mother's I thought they would stop (genetics right? Right?) but NO! They got huge! Then they started to rot and cracked and fell off. I scrambled to pick them up, but huge chunks just kept falling off. Then I woke up. Then I cried. 

My boobs are pretty normal nowadays.

[deleted]

In my dream, I woke up and knew I was in some sort of long-term care facility. I understood that I'd just come out of a coma. My mom and a nurse entered the room and stood at the foot of my bed, discussing my health.

My heart broke to see my mom so sad, so I sat up and said "Mom, I'm better!"

She didn't acknowledge me in any way. Worried, I swung my legs around and sat on the edge of the bed. "Hey, Mom! I'm here, I'm ok!"

No response.

Consumed with horror, I leapt up and tried to hug her. For the tiniest moment, my hands made contact. Then I fell right through her, like a spirit passing through a wall.

It was one of those dreams that are so impossibly terrifying that my brain couldn't deal, and I woke up gasping for air.


What happened next isn't a dream, but I've always wanted to write this out.

So I had just had this awful dream where I died and was invisible to my grieving mother. I wanted to comfort her but I couldn't, and it was awful.

So I woke up. It was early in the morning, still dark out. I crept out of bed and into the living room, where the phone was, and dialed my parents.

After a couple rings, my mom picked up, her voice all foggy with sleep.

"Hello?"

I rambled quickly, "Hi Mom, it's me, sorry to wake you up but I had a bad dream and it was really scary and I just wanted to tell you I love you."

"Hello?"

There was something wrong with her phone and she couldn't hear me.

"Hello? Hello? Oh well." click

It was four in the morning and I was in a creepy silent house in the middle of nowhere, in a state where I knew no one, and now, apparently, my dream was real and I was dead. I completely lost it, wailing and screaming into the receiver in terror.

And that's how my roommate found me when my freakout woke him up. He walked in and looked right at me, and it was the first time someone had acknowledged me since the dream started. I was so relieved and grateful that I didn't even feel embarrassed.

curious_umbrella

The phone rings in the middle of the night, I wake up, I answer it. Silence then a voice that says "I'm dead". I go back to sleep. Phone rings again, silence then I hear "I see you". Eventually whenever I do wake up and am fully conscious I can't remember if it's a dream or not, but it sticks in the back of my mind.

vesnapukanic

I had a dream my youngest died, she was 7 at the time. In my dream we had a funeral for her and all. I am a grown man and Army vet, yet I woke up sobbing and would randomly tear up for days afterwards.

Bscott411

I had this dream when I was very little.

As far as I can remember, I was in standing at one end of my living room, unable to move, petrified by fear. I saw the corpses of my family (mom, dad and small brother) ,on the floor at the other end, all bloody. Then I saw a monster slowly come in, unaware of my presence, and start eating up my dad.

The worst part was, when it realized my presence in the room, and turned its head slowly towards me, and started to bounce its way across the room to me (yes, it didn't walk. It 'bounced'.) making a repetitive noise with each bounce. 

The monster kind of resembled 'Alice the Goon' from Popeye.

Agnibh Dasgupta

I was 5 years old and my parents got me a Sega Genesis and Sonic 2 and I LOVED IT. One night I had a dream Sonic jumped into some wall spikes and got pierced and was bleeding all over me and he died in my arms. As a 5 year old girl this was traumatic. I couldn't play that game for a long time afterwards because I was scared he would jump into the spikes and bleed all over me again.

neonglitterbandit

I have one recurring one, where I'm at a cliff, along with someone I care about. Suddenly they push me off, purposefully. I fall for ages and then right before I land, I'm back on the cliff.

Sometimes it's the same person every cycle, sometimes it changes through out.

I hate it a lot and it's one of the many reasons I can never sleep, but I have to say it sort of reminds me of bungee jumping, which just reminds me I have to add bungee jumping off a cliff on my bucket list to get over this thing.

Jay Anderson

I had a dream that someone killed me.

It wouldve been bad enough if it just stopped there. But it didnt.

I came back as a ghost/spirit. And I had to watch everyone, specifically my friends and family, react. I dont remember much of it but my older sister had a huge impact on it.

She was sitting in her room writing a poem about me. I was in there watching her. All of a sudden, she started talking to me. Normal stuff we talked about like, "You would never believe what freaking Matthew and Annie did today. I was just sitting in lunch and…" She also told me some stuff about herself: "Proms this Saturday! I found a bracelet to go with my dress. I dont think Ill go with anybody this year, though." 

But then she said: "Sarah, were going to miss you." 

And I just broke down crying. In the dream, and in real life. I woke up sobbing.

I died and then couldnt handle the stress of people missing me. I want to be needed but I also dont want to be. I love my life right now. I love my family and my friends. But I cant handle the stress of being missed.

Sarah Pawlowski

The dream starts with me waking up in the middle of the night to drink water. I hear voices of my parents arguing. I peek in, in the hopes that they do not see me. My mother turns. A chill goes through my spine as her face was blank. I mean that there were no eyes, mouth, or nose (like slender man). My father also turns and he too has the same face. I scream and run to my brothers room where I tell him everything I saw. He assures that everything is all right and for calming me, he enters my parents room and after a while calls me in. As soon as I enter. he too has the same face…

I then woke up and was sweating.

Aastha Rathore

I woke up (in my dream) to find my bed surrounded by broken glass and bloody writing all over the walls (it wasn't legible).
I ran out of the bedroom (barefoot through the glass) and down to the front door.... where I actually woke up. standing in front of the door.

Amanda S. Glover

I had one dream years ago that petrified me for life.

I am sitting in a living room. And older looking one. Like if youve ever seen the movie Up its the like the living room from that.

I am in third person mode watching this dream. A little weird for my taste.

Suddenly the weirdest and most horrifying thing ever happens.

I open my mouth and a gigantic, and I mean the size of an anaconda, millipede crawls up my throat, out of my mouth, and out the window.

After that more tiny, or rather normal sized millipedes come out, out of my eyelids, out from under my fingernails, and out my ears, and go out the window.

I sit there blank faced, not moving, until I wake up.

Nikki Ahrens

Bubbles. 

That is all I can see. Hundreds, no, thousands of them, churning up from a murky abyss. They slip through my fingers, under my clothes, thrashing me back and forth in unison as the sunlight street I am walking on is flooded with darkness and water. There is a sense of tragedy in the air. I shouldnt be able to breathe underwater, yet I do. 

What I see next startles me. A lifeless shape that is unmistakably the silhouette of a person. It flows in front of me, limp as a rag doll, as if the life had been crushed out of it. I follow it as it tumbles against the buildings that come into view, emerging from the navy-blue setting.

I paddle my arms to view my surroundings, and as I do, another body appears. Then another. Then another.

It happens so fast, its as if I blinked and theyre all there. Bodies everywhere, replacing the countless bubbles that once surrounded me, materializing as if woven from the water itself. Some are clearly adults. Some are no bigger than small children.

And theyre all dead.

Logan Ashmore

I was in a glass box, in the middle of a mall, with rivets all over my skin, and blood pouring out of them. The box was filling up, and I was going to drown in my own blood, and the only thing people did, was stop, giggle and wave, and carry on.

cckFNdiesel

I was 7 when this happened. I was sitting on a rollercoaster with my parents. Then we went upside down and fell out. The light rapidly faded and a thunderstorm started and my parents and I were chased by a giant raccoon with Katie Couric's face on it. We just barely escape. I woke up in tears.

I dreamt I was lying in bed. My feet started to itch. Suddenly, they started bubbling and little spots started appearing. These spots grew into pus-filled boils. Then, they grew into tentacles. Twenty to thirty, pus-filled, raw, painful tentacles - each about an inch in diameter on my soles, thrashing and waving around.

Then, they suddenly died and began drying out, into dead, scab tentacles. They went the consistency of burnt wood and then remained on my feet.

I woke up with a gasp. I could feel those tentacles on my feet for about two days. What the heck.

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

You're not the only one.

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

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

I Know What I Like

Giphy

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

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

A Stair Step

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

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

Saturdays

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

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

Iraq

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

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

$40

With an ex:

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

She did not understand this.

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

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

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

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

Crayons

Giphy

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

That's Unfair

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

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

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

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

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

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

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

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

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

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

This Unusual Vegan Argument

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

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

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

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

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

Monty Python

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

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

Below Sea Level

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


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

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

Tomash

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

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


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

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

No Balloons For Grandma

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

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

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

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

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

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

Andre 2000?

Giphy

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


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

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

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

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

Richard Nixon

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


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

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

Binder Clips

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

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

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

Jewish

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

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

Nutella

Giphy

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

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

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

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

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

Wicked Witch of the West

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

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

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

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

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

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

Telekinesis

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

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

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

Ghosts

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


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

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

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

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

Is water wet?

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

For the record, it is no to both questions.

Mission Trip

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

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

Dragon Tales

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

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

Green Or Yellow?

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

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

Stars In Their Multitude

Giphy

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

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

Colorblind

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

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

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

Hot Water

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

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

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

Biology Class

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

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

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

Solid Or Liquid?

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

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