* Web page coding. Many people hold nothing but contempt towards "easy-to-use" programs like Dreamweaver, preferring to code using nothing but a raw text editor like Wordpad. Meanwhile, the contemptibility of all other families of text editors is roughly the only point on which Emacs aficionados and vi partisans agree, in much the same fashion as one might imagine both Yahweh and Lucifer despise atheists, and ''everyone'' hates Sublime Text 2 users for the precious little snivelers they are.

* The "Deutsche Organisation nichtkommerzieller Anhänger des lauteren Donaldismus" (short: [[FunWithAcronyms D.O.N.A.L.D.]])[[note]]Translation "German organisation [of] non-commerical followers of the pure Donaldism"[[/note]], a German club of Donaldists - that is, people treating the universe of WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck (mostly based on the works by CarlBarks) in a decidedly academic way. Some of them even got jobs at the serious German newspaper "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" and use this to make {{Shout Out}}s.

%%* Speaking of TonkaTough, according to the Tonka company, there are currently seven people around the world who, because of the Tonka guarantee, receive a lifetime supply of free merchandise because they somehow managed to destroy a Tonka toy ''through the normal course of play''. Whenever a claim is made on the guarantee, Tonka sends out a team of investigators to make sure the toy in question wasn't destroyed intentionally, or by extraordinary means (running it through a machine press, for example). For Tonka, the TonkaTough guarantee is SeriousBusiness indeed.%%

* Chili. As in the plant (mostly capsicum varieties) that has varying degrees of hotness and is usually red. People who like to eat it often grow their own and can get into endless debates on which types are the best and how best to prepare them. The whole thing is awfully similar to [[TheStoner other plants and their fans]], but then again Chili peppers cause endorphins to be released if you survive the pain they cause.[[note]] "Hot" is not a "taste" and indeed your tastebuds give the same reaction whether you are eating chili peppers or bell peppers. It is instead a reaction of ''pain'' as your mouth reports being way too hot due to a substance called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capsaicin Capsicin]]. Hence the English word "hot" really is appropriate for describing what chili peppers do to you.[[/note]] Oh and don't get into debates on how to call the fruits.

*** Though maximum heights can be justified in areas where disease-carrying pests are common, as they can hide and breed in tall grass.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' [[GameMod modding]] scene, some [[StopHavingFunGuys people]] treat lore accuracy in mods as this. If they encounter a mod that does not fit into the style of the gameworld and established lore, like for example anime or Star Wars based mods, they will surely post a comment to let everyone know how this mod is complete trash and an offense to the entire Elder Scrolls franchise. Instead of, you know, simply choosing not to use the mod and moving on to mods they do like.

** People will often label loners and introverts as very bad people. If a person really is content and happy in their solitude, expect others to, at best, dismiss this claim and accuse them of being rude, selfish, or arrogant individuals who doesn't care about anyone, or, at worst, outright sociopaths or serial killers. Even sympathetic extroverted people who may respect the loners' space will nevertheless insist that they should socialize and meet other people at some point in their lives since "humans are social beings". Needless to say, [[StopHelpingMe introverts/loners won't enjoy this at all.]]

** As detailed above, Italians are particularly sensible on wine's quality. They ''will'' send ''military police'' if you break any of the very strict laws on food and drinks production, but wine is a sore spot due both the economic importance of the industry (to the point that UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini crippled Italian ''cider'' industry when it threatened wine production) and a scandal about ''poisonous'' wine (23 people dead and many more blinded due adding ethanol to the wine).
