How To Irritate A Geek Into An Argument

Here are links to two of the interesting articles I ran across on the web today.

Top 10 Ways to Provoke a Geek Argument and Top 10 (More) Ways to Provoke a Geek Argument. Both are timeless and hilarious!

I started thinking to myself the things people say that really irritate me and may provoke me into an argument. Here is the beginning of such a list:

  • Evolution is just a theory
  • Anti-virus, and other security software just slows my PC down, so why bother with them?
  • Genetically modified organisms (GMO) go against the will of nature
  • If we don't pay the CEO multi-billions of dollars, we will not get any qualified person to do the job!
  • Oil companies are conspiring to push up the price of gas at the pump
  • I read this on the internet, so it must be true
  • You always get what you pay for
  • You need privacy only if you have something illegal to hide
  • If the label says All Natural, then it has to be good for you
  • Whatever does not kill you makes you stronger
I am sure I have heard a lot more over the years. They will come back to me one by one as these get repeated to me over time by various different people. Hopefully I will remember to come back and record them here for posterity!
