** Even this wiki isn't immune: TimeyWimeyBall once had the line, "debating which time travel theory is right is much like trying to find the best flavor of ice cream". After [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/archived_discussion.php?s_t=Main.TimeyWimeyBall over fifty different edits]] of what the best flavor of ice cream actually was, the joke was removed. Oddly enough, a similar line involving Kool-Aid flavors is now in its place and has never attracted controversy.

This is when a SeinfeldianConversation becomes SeriousBusiness. When it happens in RealLife—YouTube comments in particular are full of these—it will usually be because the combatants are people with an extremely fragile sense of self worth, and they view their opinion as a source of validation. In other words, they think that if they're wrong (or if someone else disagrees with them) about whether SpiderMan's costume is made of nylon or spandex, it lessens their inherent degree of value as a human being.

* Many a troper has probably been watching a classic movie with friends when an inane debate broke out. Ever witnessed a debate running the length of ''BackToTheFuture'' over whether the Flux-Capacitor capacitates flux or fluxes capacitance? The winners are the people who made the physics students who started the trouble watch ''Film/TheCore''.
* The whole black and blue/white and gold dress debacle.

* The whole [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_dress black and blue/white and gold dress debacle.dress]] debacle. People are literally only able to see it one way. It was revealed to be black and blue, though the company that produced it made a one-off white and gold one for a charity event.

* There was actually [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nix_v._Hedden a Supreme Court decision]] about whether the tomato should be considered a fruit or a vegetable for tax purposes.

* Similarly, the makers of Jaffa Cakes went to court in the UK to prove that they are actually cakes, which aren't taxed in the UK, rather than biscuits which are (but only if they have chocolate on them: that means that they're considered luxury items—unlike cakes, apparently). No, it doesn't really make sense. The company managed to prove that Jaffa Cakes are indeed cakes by A: Showing that Jaffa Cakes, like other cakes, will go stale if left out (if they were biscuits they would go soft) and B: Making an extra large Jaffa Cake which was then served as a regular cake. That hasn't stopped debates raging up and down the country; tea and biscuits (or cakes) really are SeriousBusiness in Britain. As silly it looks for an average person, for multinational companies product classifications may translate to millions in taxes and customs. (This also led to the [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2305938/McVities-launches-The-Big-One-Jaffa-Cake-decades-beating-taxman-landmark-VAT-battle.html "Big One"]], a cake-sized Jaffa Cake you can buy.)
