First I thought, only you would get upset about this. Then I thought, I've gotten upset over WAY less, and my friend wasn't even trolling.Talking with an internet acquaintance about a game (Europa Universalis IV) and had this infuriating exchange:
Me: You talk a good game and all, but invading Russia rarely ever works out for the invading party. Look at Napoleon (within the bounds of the game, which goes from 1422-1821).
Him: Yeah but he was inferior to the Prussians, the Prussians could have done it.
Me: Well the Germans did invade Russia and I don't think it went well.
Him: Yeah but look at the Seven Years War, they beat Russia then!
Me: The Tsarina died after the Russians took the Prussian Baltic ports and the new Tsar loved Prussia so he bailed. Otherwise Prussia was done.
Him: Well, she knew she'd lose so she just died.
I know he's being a troll, but like, fuck right off with the Prussian worship.
I'm a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes movies, both classic and remakes (sans the Tim Burton version), and I was discussing the second in the modern trilogy with a friend at Denny's:
Me: "I'm terribly disappointed in Caesar's response to Koba, man."
Me: When they're in the collapsing building? And Caesar is holding on to Koba weighing his options and Koba says, "Ape no kill ape." And Caesar gets all pissed and says, "Koba no ape," and just lets go.
Him: What's wrong with that?
Me: What's wrong with that!? WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT!? I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S FUCKING WRONG WITH THAT, IT'S THE SAME FUCKING REASON PEOPLE HAVE USED TO KILL AND ENSLAVE OTHER PEOPLE, CHOOSING NOT TO SEE THEM AS HUMAN BEINGS OR EQUALS, HERE IS A MOVIE THAT CAN MAKE A STATEMENT AND THEY HAVE THEIR HERO DO EXACTLY WHAT THE VILLIANS ARE DOING!? FUCK THAT! WAS IT SO HARD TO HAVE HIM SAY, "KOBA IS A BAD APE!?"
Him: I think you're ready too much into it.
Me: AM NOT! *take a bite of my turkey with tomato and melted cheese sandwich*
