1/10. Two of my friends once argued what was better: five 99 cent boxes of 4 mcnuggets or the 20 mcnugget box for 5 dollars, it went on for about an hour.
2/10. Not me, but when my daughter and her friend were in 3rd grade my daughter came running into the house crying and bleeding on her neck and chest. Apparently she and her friend had just come to blows (scratches) over how big the friend’s imaginary friend was. Not even kidding.
3/10. I once got into an argument with my college roommate about whether Aladdin should be angry when Jasmine kissed Jafar to distract him at the end of the movie.
We were two college aged men yelling at each other in the middle of a bar. For some reason it just go so heated. It only ended when my friend left the bar. I’m still mad thinking about it.
4/10. My friend tried arguing with me that the Chick-fil-A cows should be able to spell properly if they were going to write on a billboard. I argued for way too long that if I was teaching a cow to write and it got to the point where people could understand its message, then I would be okay with that.

5/10. Sort of related: I had two friends passionately argue, for way too long, if a pizza should be considered a pie or an open-faced sandwich.
6/10. I once was part of an argument in history class where the girl thought that Islam was a country. She didn’t believe me or my teacher and some of her friends actually joined in on her side. I went to a highly ranked public school in MA. Yeah, she failed that class. She spent 15 minutes trying to find it on a map.
7/10. I once spent almost an entire class trying to explain the “Bob’s mom has three kids. April, May, and who?” riddle to a girl that sat next to me. She must have answered with every month at least once, even after I drew the family tree and pointed to Bob and his mother as I repeated it very slowly. She simply could not even.

8/10. My junior year of high school I got into a very heated debate with my friend over whether Cheetos were considered chips. After half an hour of yelling about this he finally called frito-lay headquarters to ask their opinion on the matter. I was right, they’re not chips 🙂
9/10. Whether sandals are considered shoes.
My one roommate decided to have a house party for her coworkers. I had no issues, I had met a few and they were cool.
The party starts and everything is fine until, one of her male coworkers just happened to be wearing my flip flops. I was taken aback. I mean, who just puts on someone else’s shoes? Anyway, I tell him to take off my shoes. He had no reaction to what I said so I told him again. Same thing. This smart ass decides to tell me that he was in fact wearing sandals so me telling him take off my shoes was incorrect. He took them off but we proceeded to get into a heated debate about whether or not sandals were shoes.
10/10. I was involved in this argument, but only as collateral.
Two guys were arguing whether dogs have souls, and I was the only other person in the room just listening to them passionately defend their views. At one point as the debate got pretty heated the guy that believed that yes, dogs have souls, asked me in an exasperated tone “You believe dogs have souls right?!” to which I replied “I don’t even believe humans have souls.”
That somehow both ended the argument and didn’t turn it against me.
