There are many topics which spur heated debate. Even the most civilized people will turn into hateful, venom spewing, soapbox standing on, self righteous jerks when presented with the appropriate topic. And as many of you know, the internet is the perfect place to air out grievances about all sorts of subjects. However, those topics will not be featured here.
Instead, I present to you the little arguments and the petty subjects.
Peanut Butter: Is smooth or chunky better?
Manual or automatic transmission?
Sliced bread: Why do people compare the next great thing to sliced bread? This is not a critical invention.
There, they're and their: Either we need to eliminate 2 of these words and give the remaining one all the meanings of the group or people just need to learn how to spell.
Metric vs. U.S. units: Even though metric is far superior, I still don't have an accurate mental picture of how fast 15 m/s is or how warm 30 degrees Celsius is. And why isn't there a metric (base-10) system for time?
Coke or Pepsi?
Tea or Coffee?
What is the greatest television comedy? Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Friends, Arrested Development, something else?
What is your favorite type of quark: up, down, bottom, top, strange or charmed?
The best color ever is clearly cobalt blue. Prove me wrong.
What is the best season? Basketball season is not an answer. Because I said so, that's why.
Is it better to have loved and lost or is it better to have never loved at all?
Is Wikipedia the best thing since sliced bread?
Boxers, briefs or boxer briefs? Why do people even include briefs anymore? I might as well include banana hammocks.

Should Pluto be a planet?
Who is faster: Superman, the Flash or Usain Bolt?
Who has the more annoying voice: Fran Drescher or Gilbert Gottfried?
I have a friend whose birthday is February 29th. On a non-leap year, should his birthday be celebrated on the 28th or the 1st? This is a critical question for him this year as he turns 21. Would he be legally allowed to drink on the 28th?
I never understood the point of giving February just 28 days. Why not take a day from January and a day from March give them to February and that way every month has at least 30 days.
