Time is fleeting, madness, takes control. Yes, those are immortal words from a musical but also truth for life. Why do we bother wasting time with frivolous situations? You're right! I'm right! Who cares?! Unless it's a life and death situation; it's not worth getting into heated moments over. Too much tragedy has occurred over the most insignificant, ridiculous thoughts. Be better.

Redditor u/Ryiien wanted to hear about the times we've realized that there were things not worth fussing over by asking..... What's the stupidest thing someone has argued with you about?

Split...

Giphy

Someone started an argument claiming that if identical twins are separated at birth and raised by different families, then they're not twins anymore. ZeiramZaraki

The Ant Butt....

I got an argument when I was around 8 that some ants have wings and some don't. That was the whole argument. This kid absolutely refused to believe that some ants have wings.

It ended with him headbutting me. TheNotLogicBomb

Idiots. 

My ex girlfriend and I got into a pretty heated argument about where the bed sheets should be stored. Personally I just thought that her putting them down with the canned foods in the kitchen didn't seem to make as much sense as putting them with the curtains and towels in the bathroom. But apparently that makes me an idiot. that1one1dude

3:43...

Someone tried to convince me that they could run a mile in 3 minutes. After I called her out saying the fastest was 3 minutes and 43 seconds she then argued that the fastest mile was actually 1 minute. thicky-_-vicky

My Butterfinger...

Around fourth grade I was at lunch, and I SAW my friend take my butterfinger out of my lunchbox and she spent the entire 20 minutes trying to convince me it was her's. kcrose13

For the "B" 

Back in high school my friend was trying to tell me Alaska was it's own country and Guam was a state. jw7991

There's this girl in my class at school and she thought Alaska was in Europe. She also thinks that a B grade stands for bad and A grade stands for average. Ryiien

Not that particular day.

My mother argued with me about the hours of operation for the retail chain I've been working at for 10 years at the time. She thought they were closed on a particular holiday, but in reality they only close on Christmas. Half days on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Not that particular day.

Eventually I turned to my father and told him to ignore mom and go to the store to get chips or carrots or whatever it was the party was low on. Which was the catalyst for the argument.

They were open, dad got the snacks, and I was left feeling like my mom had no idea what I do for a living. Blacktung

His response?

That Vatican City wasn't a country after multiple google searches, the whole class agreeing that it was and even a geography teacher telling him it was

His response?

"I still don't think it is because I can have my own opinion" PyroTeknich

Family Issues....

My mother insists that fish aren't animals- that they are their own Kingdom like fungi or plants. We were out to dinner and I insisted that we ask our waitress what she thought (to get some support). She said "Oh this is perfect! I'm a bio major actually, so I know she's right. You'll learn about it in college."

And 8 years later here I am on the other end of college, my mother still pridefully reminding me how she beat me at that argument.

My cousin also believes that if her parents never met she would still be alive, just in two different bodies. I didn't want to touch that one though. This family is a can of worms. Faulty_Pants

weirdest argument ever.​....

Giphy

I was eating a pickle at lunch, in high school. I referred to my pickle for some reason in the conversation. My friend said, "That's not a pickle."

It was a pickle. A normal, big crunchy dill pickle. It looked exactly like the pickle you're picturing right now.

I asked her what she thought it was, and she said it was a cucumber. I said that she was right, but that it was also a pickle. She disagreed. I asked her what she thought a pickle was, then, if not the thing in my hand. She couldn't answer.

It was the weirdest argument ever. poemchomsky

Oh the beginning of the interwebs.

We really thought it wouldn't be much of a fuss.

We definitely did not see what was to come.

Maybe it should've stayed simple.

We'll never know.

Computers rule the world now.

The internet is God.

Let's see where we are in another twenty years.

Those were the days.

Not all television and movies are loved by all.

A story and its characters have to appeal to you in order for you to be engaged.

It can take next to nothing for us to lose interest and let the screen go black.

People Debate The Worst Ways Someone Can Die

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

I think about it in my waking hours.

It's an obsession and clearly, I'm not alone.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.

Foreigners Explain Which Stereotypically American Things They've Always Wanted To Try

Most Americans think nothing of their humdrum daily activities or amenities available to them.

However, others with a different perspective might romanticize the things that are otherwise commonplace ideas and concepts for US citizens, like going to a diner or riding the school bus.
