* Equally, don't bring up ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode'' or anything similar around a Crusades historian or an expert on the Military Orders (e.g. the Templars). Just don't.
* For the love of whatever deity you do or don't believe in, don't try and claim that the Roman Empire ended in the 5th century AD around a Byzantinist. If you are lucky, you will get a several hour long lecture explaining how, in fact, the Western Roman Empire fell, while the Eastern Roman Empire survived as a continuous polity in the form of the Byzantine Empire until 1453, reconquered large chunks of the West at various points, and remained a military superpower until approximately 650 AD, with resurgences between c. 850 and 1050, and to a lesser extent, 1100 and 1180, and a significant regional power/cultural and economic superpower until at least 1204.
** Also, don't call Istanbul by its old name of Constantinople unless you're referring to a time ''before'' the name was changed. Equally, don't call it Istanbul before the 20th century.

* [[AllAnimationIsDisney Call a Don Bluth movie a Disney movie]] when there are Creator/DonBluth fans around. You'll be sure to irk someone. Granted, Bluth ''did'' work at Disney for a time in the '70s (and he also worked on the Disney short ''WesternAnimation/TheSmallOne'').

** Depends on the chef. Chefs who are also restaurateurs (ie. deal with costings as well as cooking) adore people who eat well-done steak, because meat is expensive and people who order well-done steak can't tell if it's fresh or not. So if you like well-done steak, don't worry, the chef doesn't look down on you... s/he's grateful because nobody but you will eat week-old steak without complaining.

Chefs who are also restaurateurs (ie. deal with costings as well as cooking) adore people who eat well-done steak, because meat is expensive and people who order it's very difficult to tell if steak that's been cooked well-done steak can't tell if it's is fresh or not. So if you like well-done steak, don't worry, the chef doesn't look down on you... s/he's grateful because nobody but you will eat week-old steak without complaining.

* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''[=/=]''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'': Go and tell ''Despicable Me'' fans and non-fans alike that you still like the Minions and think they're the best part of the movies as HypeBacklash and ItsPopularNowItSucks has hit the little critters like a semi-truck. Go ahead. Merely mentioning them will tear your soul apart.
