I have a few I can recall off the top of my head. I’m a very logical person and enjoy healthy debate, but sometimes, things get a bit out of control.
1) I got into an argument with my ex husband over whether I like apples. He insisted I didn’t. I said that I surely do. He asked how I can like apples when I’m allergic to them! Um, because I can still like them?
2) A guy I dated for a couple months tried to explain the concept of survival of the fittest to me. (Keep in mind that I have a degree in anthropology.) He said that only the strongest survive. I agreed that strength is a factor, and reminded him not to forget about things like camouflage, as that’s also an advantage that leads to better survival odds. He told me I was wrong and got very offended when I tried to better explain the theory. He told me that a theory is just an opinion. I laughed… couldn’t help it. He stormed out because I laughed at him. Oops.
3) Same guy as 2). He was ranting about “big pharma” and asked what rationale conservatives could possibly have for their views. Okay, I know this answer, because I’m an attorney and arguing both sides is my fave. I told him because I thought he wanted to talk about the answer. He flew off the handle and told me I was a terrible, heartless human being. Void of compassion, like every other conservative. … I’m not a conservative. Our 6 date relationship ended right there. How sad.
Give me some fun ones, Bees. I have a light afternoon at work.

bouviebee : My husband and I frequently play argue about how Star Wars is the same as Harry Potter. He knows it riles me up when he says it. I cant possibly see how they are alike.

We argued about whether or not the homemade pickles I made were supposed to go in the refrigerator or not.
I used a quick-canning mix that specifically said “refrigerator pickle mix” and the instructions told you to put the jars in the fridge when they sealed and they would last for X months or something. So… I put them in the fridge.
Darling Husband saw the pickles in the fridge and started in on me that I canned the pickles the wrong way and yada yada yada and I pulled out the mix package and read him the instructions and pointed to the quite obvious “REFRIGERATOR PICKLE MIX” part and he still proceeded to tell me I was wrong and how I probably ruined them because I put them in the fridge instead of sit out.
Dude… like you are an expert on canning and making homemade pickles. Are you freaking kidding me you’re arguing with what instructions say? I mean we got to yelling and pissing at each other over this. SMH.

…since cows are the biggest contributing factor to the greenhouse effect, people don’t really have to worry about their carbon footprint. Um, what???

I once had to prove to my husband that narwhals were real. He thought they were made up for children’s Christmas movies (like Elf).

I had a fight with my ex about whether I should offer him the bed (as a guest) for him to decline and take the couch, or if I should just take the bed in the first instance because I was the girl.
Hilarious because we were sleeping in the bed together and it turned into a giant fight over a hypothetical. Also odd because in the four years we were together it was one of the only fights we had.

We once had an argument , which descended into shouting, about whether a tv programme’s contention that a particular archaeological site had demonstrated that gladiators were buried there , or not……

I’m a middle school teacher. I have students attempt to get into pointless arguments with me on a daily basis.

FH and I had a heated argument as to whether Porter Robinson (a music producer/DJ) controlled his visuals as well as the music or if they were programmed or if the lights tech chose them. This also broke into a side argument as to whether or not his sets were pre planned…
For reference they were heavily influenced in anime and seemingly told a story.

Dh and I argued about whether the KFC Double Down was a sandwich. He said it wasn’t because it didn’t have meat between slices of bread, and I said it was because the chicken served as the bread so that still counted as a sandwich.

Hahaha. Here’s one that still makes me laugh. In the middle of the night, we were both lying there in bed absolutely fuming that the other person had stolen all the covers. I finally sat up and yanked on them and said “you have all the blankets!” And he sat up and said “YOU have all the blankets”
and because we were idiots who shouldn’t be together, and it was around 3am, we *actually argued for a while about it* until I realized the blankets were just completely smooshed somehow into this huge lump between us.
I laughed so hard. He stayed grumpy a little while and then played the “odd couple” theme for us. It was our perfect theme song
