So how many of these arguments have you had?

10) Freddy vs. Jason - Nope. Wait, I don't think so...ummm...actually, probably when I was younger. (picks Freddy)

9) Is Pluto a Planet? - Yes and yes it is.

8) The Juggernaut vs. the Blob - I don't think so, but Juggernaut is better.

7) Would Sex with Superman Kill Lois Lane? - Yes and yes.

6) Who's the Best Doctor? - I love the video that they have on the site. And yes, but they agree with me. Tenth of course.

5) Joel or Mike? - Yes. And I still don't know who I like better but I think I'm more partial to the original host.

4) Do Balrogs have wings? - I can say that I have never debated over this and I doubt I ever will.

3) The Book Vs. the Movie - ALL THE TIME!!

2) DC or. Marvel? See above.


1) Star Trek or Star Wars? - Clearly it's Star Wars. Clearly.

10. I never watch those kinds of movies.
9. Pluto will always be a planet. In our hearts.
8. Don't read/watch X-Men.
7. Never discussed this one.
6. I've only seen a couple of episodes and they both had the same guy, so I don't know.
5. Never watched that show.
4. I couldn't describe or identify a Balrog even if you showed me a photograph unless it was wearing a nametag.
3. Yeah, of course. We usually decide on the book, even if the movie was good.
2. Don't read comic books at all. ;
1. Never had this discussion before. Why choose?

The only real geek argument I've had before is Samus vs Master Chief. Clearly, Samus is superior. Chief dies from getting hit with too many bullets. Samus can get smacked around, fall in lava, acid, be shot by tons of beams etc etc etc and still win.

Not to mention Samus is never without a weapon. A weapon with infinite ammo.

10) Freddy vs. Jason? - Nope, not at all.

9) Is Pluto a Planet? - No, and no it isn't.

8) The Juggernaut vs. the Blob - I'M THE JUGGERNAUT, BITCH. But no.

7) Would Sex with Superman Kill Lois Lane? - No, but she survived and had a superkid, so no. (Talking about Returns.)

6) Who's the Best Doctor? - Don't watch Doctor Who.

5) Joel or Mike? - Nope.

4) Do Balrogs have wings? - I can say that I have never debated over this and I doubt I ever will.

3) The Book Vs. the Movie - Always. And apparently you have to read the whole series to have a valid opinion, instead of just the one that was made into a movie.

2) DC or. Marvel? No, not that often. Not many comic book geeks here.

1) Star Trek or Star Wars? - Star Trek wins, but I've never had this debate with anyone.

Yeah, I've had this argument too. Samus would win.

10) Freddy vs. Jason - I honestly never saw either movie....

9) Is Pluto a Planet? - Never had this argument but you knoooow...it's a yellow, cartoon dog. Get it right!

8) The Juggernaut vs. the Blob - Obviously the Juggernaut [bitch!]

7) Would Sex with Superman Kill Lois Lane? - Never argued this either, but probably not...sex with Superman has to be short, he's faster than a speeding bullet.

6) Who's the Best Doctor? - Never seen this show.

5) Joel or Mike? - Also never seen this

4) Do Balrogs have wings? - I don't think so.

3) The Book Vs. the Movie - Plenty of times, haha. Or, "the game vs. the movie". Or whatever the original vs. the movie.

2) DC or. Marvel? Never have, wasn't big on American comics...


1) Star Trek or Star Wars? - Star Wars is a little bit cooler...

Although I haven't had most of these arguments, I have contemplated most of them at one time or another. I'm actually a little relieved to know I'm not only person who's wondered if Superman would kill Lois Lane he he tried to have sex with her. I pretty sure he would, since there's the whole issue of supersperm.

My favorite geek argument is "Who would win in a fight...". Which involves arguing who would have the advantage in a hypothetical physical fight between any two individuals, groups, or animals, either living or dead (the fight would of course take place when they're alive, presumable during they're prime), real or fictional, or any combination of those. As in "Bear vs. Gorilla", "Superman vs. The Enterprise", or "Bob Dole vs. John McCain".

The most common geek argument is probably which competing software is better for a particular purpose. Firefox vs IE, Linux vs Windows, etc.

As for all the people who haven't seen MST3K, that's a little sad.

@Erika: I thought of that Balrog first too. XD

I've had a couple of these arguments before. Notably the Book/Movie one.

10) Freddy vs. Jason - Nope. Not big on horror.

9) Is Pluto a Planet? - sort of? either way, fuck that shit hearing about it annoys me to hell

8) The Juggernaut vs. the Blob - nope; couldn't care less (not that i know what they're from, anyway)

7) Would Sex with Superman Kill Lois Lane? - not even; ask me about sex and i'll give you sex (i'd answer both, because it just makes everything kinkier)

6) Who's the Best Doctor? - never watched dr. who

5) Joel or Mike? - nope; never watched them (or heard of them until now)

4) Do Balrogs have wings? - friends don't know what cave story is what the fuck lord of the rings. not a fan of the books/movies, and i doubt my friends are; they'd just be like erika and make a street fighter joke (although with added lame)

3) The Book Vs. the Movie - comes up every now and then; depends on your taste

2) DC or. Marvel? nope, but dc has batman and that's pretty badass

1) Star Trek or Star Wars? - friends really only like star wars... but i'd rather watch neither oh please don't shoot me btw


if anything, the only arguments that come up are about some lame game i don't play, my sexuality (i do so many homosexual things it's messing with their head a bit), or metal gear solid i guess

Is Pluto a planet? Of course not; it doesn't fit the official definition of a planet.
Regardless, Pluto's label is really only important to what we should call it. It doesn't change what it truly is at all.

...Everything else I could hardly care less for. All of them are pretty much entirely a matter of opinion, so there isn't really a point in arguing about it.

Okay, strike that, I just had my first debate on whether or not Balrogs have wings....heh...and it's not over yet.

Here is something you may not believe about me. Which is kinda sad thanks to my nerdiness.

I have never seen a single 'Star Wars' movie before in my life.

There, I said it. Now how does this go in with this thread? People actually think I am lying about this!

I mean shit I am just not a movie person. I mean I like anime and stuff. But I never seen any of the movies before in my life! I have seen clips of them. I have seen Darth Vader go "Luke, I am your father". I am obviously missing something important here!

Now, onto some nerd arguments I have gotten into

I have proved my Uncle wrong how stupid it is to overclock your Xbox processor. And about how he claims the PS3 is for little girls. I'm not a fanboy or anything. But why in the fuck would you do this? I mean, it's not like the Xbox has some kinda fucking system requirements or anything. Which I have brought up and he claims it runs 'better'.

How? More FPS? Why in the fuck would you do this? I mean I can understand modding the damn thing. But not mod the processor to where it runs faster. I mean what in the fuck? That to me is a waste of time! Do any Xbox games need a little more 'umph' from the console? Not that I know of...

He swears up and down it runs better. It's like me if I were to up the anty on my PS3. Uhhh...why bother? There are no requirements when you buy the game for the console. You put the disc in and play the damn thing.

Yes, people like him exist.
