(Lifehacker)   How to react when someone says you're wrong (but you know you're right). Subby usually gives them the stink-eye and tells them to "Fark off and DIAF". Apparently this is the "wrong" way to react   (lifehacker.com) divider line 27

Just react the way most people react on Fark. Start saying derp and let the personal attacks fly!

I would agree with you on this, but then we would both be wrong.

I once had an argument with a relative (as a pedantic 15-year-old) about Newfoundland's time zone. He'd grown up there, and somehow refused to believe that it was a 'half-hour' later than Atlantic time (itself an hour later than Eastern time).

I couldn't understand it, since he'd lived in central Canada for a decade or two at that point (he was 40-ish). My high-school brain just couldn't comprehend someone being so obstinate about something so objective. I eventually gave up, but it was hard.

/Someone was wrong on the internet in real life!

Reading Fark has helped me handle people who respond with "DIAF" when confronted with an idea that differs from their own.

You don't wear your mother's panties and sing "I'm a pretty princess" in the mirror.

show respect for a "wrong" opinion

No, if the opinion violates the facts, it's wrong. People can still hold that opinion, but objective reality exists. People who choose to live in a bubble should be treated like bubbleheads.

I won't speak for women, but men seem to go through a phase that runs anywhere from preteens to late 30s where they are absolutely certain they are right about every damn thing, and will argue vehemently to prove it.

Many folks outgrow it, though some never do.

I'm creeping on to 40 this next year and I've now learned I don't know much at all. So I stopped giving a fark about proving I'm right, and started being a lot more interested learning from life.

I occasionally get an urge to argue but I'll just lurk the Politics tab until I find a good topic. Then I vent it out on the interwebs.

I'm almost always right. I give the other person 1 chance to listen to me be right. After that, if they choose to be wrong I just enjoy their ignorance.

yup. many young fellows are full of piss & vinegar. my wife beat that out of me, as well as all self respect i ever had, my will to live and any reason to even get out of bed in the morning. i'm just a self-loathing blob waiting to die. but i wasn't always this way.

"really? i didn't know that. why don't we look it up on the internet just to make sure?"

i do this all the time. someone says some crap i know isn't true, i just suggest we do some research to find out who is right. the internet is never more than six inches away, and there is no reason not to just google something to find out the truth.

my old roommates used to get into these pointless, idiotic arguments, and each time i would practically have to yell at them, "look it up online! you're sitting at a computer right now! just look it up on wikipedia!" and amazingly, half the time they would refuse to look it up, because somehow looking it up would indicate that they were unsure, and since they were both positive they were right, then looking it up would not solve anything. i think they just liked to argue.
