So, over in the "Best Geek Quote" thread, Dave Hale brought up a fantastic argumenthe had engaged in over the spelling/pronunciation of "Inigo Montoya's" (from "The Princess Bride") name.
And I quote:
A Little off-topic, but I once got into an argument with a friend who called him Indigo (added a D). So I corrected them and verified I was right by watching the credits. They then claimed that in book, which they've read many times (I have never read it), he is called Indigo, with the D so the director must have changed it for the movie. That's when I searched Google Books and showed them I was right, he never had a D in his name.
But as for quotes, I can't really think of any right now, that haven't already been mentioned.
I have also had a similar argument, and being correct was sufficiently pleasing (as it often is in Geek debates).
So, it got me thinking. There are so many arguments and issues that exist in geek culture and the breadth and depth of the geeky subcultures that sit beneath it. This D&D rules debates, who shot first, who is the best Doctor Who...
There are also indisputable facts. (i.e. Jar-Jar)
So, share with us your finest geek victories and your worst defeats on the debating ground of significant detail and minor inconsequence. What are the best geek arguments you've had.
