Credit cards/debt
I've never understood that one... the others are all contraoersial in general, or sci-fi related, but credit cards?
There are a few people here who have a very black and white knee-jerk reaction to credit cards as if no one can or has ever used one responsibly and to their benefit before. They usually butt heads with more reasonable posters who think that while they can obviously be abused, credit cards aren't inherently the spawn of Satan's wallet. Much quoting of Dave Ramsey and excessive use of roll-eyes emoticons generally ensue from that point on.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
