Dear 100 Hour Board,
Why do people always get angry if we disagree about something? If you hate a movie that I love, that is no reason for me to get upset and put you down. Why do people always take stuff like movies so personally?
- not everything is personal

A: Dear Not everything is personal,

Simple. By stating that a movie someone likes is stupid, I am implying that the person is stupid for liking it. They therefore infer that I believe myself to be better than them, and they would be right.

- Irreverent
A: Dear Not Everything,

Well, why in the world would people become angry about something they agreed on?
