i was speechless for a good 30 mins after that before i finally told her that queer eye for the straight guy probably doesnt give the most accurate cross section of gay society.

I find that this seems to have been slightly reversed: in teen society where I live you're a hopeless nerd who has no real life communication if you DON'T use the internet (well, facebook and MSN at least). Not having a computer with internet access is like not having a TV (though I do know one girl who has internet but no TV).

Annoying Misconception: That Wikipedia is inaccurate, regardless of what you're looking at. When that story about people editing corporate or political entries was reported on, everyone seems to be following a wiki-hate trend. "Why are you looking that word up on Wikipedia? Don't you know that anyone can edit it? It could be wrong!". People seem to forget about the existence of common sense and salt.

Misconception: If I am reasonably familiar with computers, but find it incredibly frustrating when people assume I can fix theirs with ease, I shall post in this thread to that effect, and nobody else will have done so before me.

Nope, can't reply via email (as far as I know), but I'll commonly get an email saying there's been a reply, click the link, read the response, maybe post, then disappear again within a couple minutes. It's like ninja posting!

I wish I didn't agree with that statement, the problem is, no-one says it, maybe they don't think that, it's just a vibe, It's certainly making me paranoid, but whether it's justified I have no idea...

One of my friends hates Harry Potter so much no other fantasy could possibly be worse than "okay", and he hasn't even read the books.

That's just...reverse fanboyism. :/ I don't have any mutually exclusive interests. Seriously! I don't think any fandom is less legit than any other, and I don't judge a movie or piece of art until I've seen/heard/read it.

I do admit I get a bit elitist about music (For instance, I hold the opinion that some bands were just BETTER at certain times in their career, specifically Metallica and The Misfits), but I don't DISLIKE someone if I don't like the music they do.

Oh, I hate him for it, even though I'm not of the opinion Harry Potter is God's gift to literature either (it's okay).

Bands being better at some points in their career is just normal. I too think Metallica was better at some point (before) than at some other point (now), and Kaizers Orchestra just gets better for every album they release.

There's this one guy I have on my msn list from school (really not sure why I haven't purged him by now) and the last two times he spoke to me, the latter he was telling my that I was gay as I didn't have a 'misses' and didn't openly 'fancy' anyone, and the previous he told me to do his coursework, which I refused, so he then proceeded to threaten to flush my head down the toilet. He is 16.

"Science-fiction is a lot like fantasy!" - No, it is not and tehre are sci-fi-fans, who HATE fantasy with passion.

Some other annoying misconceptions:

That my life would revolve entirely around worshipping Linux. Or that I am incapable to do more with the computer than turn it on and off because I am female.

That anyone with two X-chromosones is not able to understand technical equipment.

Actually, I think that one is true. Damn Ubuntu commies.

Misconception: That because I don't often go out with friends or to parties etc, that I'm somehow not having fun, and that anything I do alone is somehow not as worthwhile. Or that because of this I must be completely antisocial. (I'm very friendly and I'm well-liked at school, I just like a lot of alone time.)

Sci-fi actually is a lot like fantasy, in the same way that Protestants are a lot like Catholics. To an outsider, the differences look small and unimportant. To insiders, the differences are clear. To a certain percentage of insiders, the differences are vast, and reason enough to tar and feather the other side. Look at the vi vs. emacs people, or this distro against that distro, or the Star Wars/Star Trek rivalry for further examples.

Sci-fi is basically fantasy, except it's based on science and plausibility. Fantasy is whatever acid trip the author can come up with. Don't mean that in a bad way.

By the way, am I the only one who thinks there should be two Sci-fi genres? Because there's two interpretations. One is that it involves futuristic things like hover cars and robots, the other is that it's based on extrapolated science. You can have a book about robots that take over japan with their mind control lasers, and a book about humans inhabiting a gas torus (Larry Niven's The Integral Trees, and they both get called Sci-fi.

.... there's Hard Science Fiction and Soft Science Fiction. The only real way to know the difference is to read it. That, or to check the sales... Hard Sci-Fi usually sells far worse than Soft Sci-Fi..

Quite Fucking True. Thank you for speaking my sentiment for me. The highlighted portions are particularly relevant. Most annoying of all: This persists even after you prove otherwise.

Concerning the clitoris: High Five! Or whatever you older folks are doing these days. I was concerned that I was alone in knowing this. However, Ian is also right. A surprisingly large portion of people know this. Lamest of all: I know this, yet still can't use it.

Moving on to other Misconceptions:

Misconception: Neurotic breakdowns are a common occurrence, especially amongst those diagnosed with neurotic-style disorders.

Misconception: Anarchy is bad.
-No, it isn't. Radical, constantly-demonized anarchy certainly is bad. Anarchy as most rational people imagine it is quite different.

I'm done for now.

I got that in jr high school. Math was super easy for me and I often helped my friends during and after class with their work. I finally told one girl that it was about time she learned the material, since I was going over and over the same thing with her. Well, I guess that didn't go over well. We didn't shut up for a week how I was too good for my friends... she eventually got distracted by something shiny and dropped it.
