You don't lose friends arguing over such trivial things. All
you do is confirm that you weren't really friends in the 
first place. When someone tells me I'm wrong about 
something I take it as a challange to prove him wrong. And
I usually don't feel compelled to share whatever fruits there
might be with them when I'm done.
