Serious Eats: Talk

Anyone have any food or cooking debates/arguments lately?

I had a pretty good one last night at work about the importance of finishing the cooking of pasta (fresh or dried) *in* the pan *with* the sauce with a guy who's argument was, "It soaks up too much sauce and the pasta turns out dry and ugly". I cried a little inside at the ignorance. But it ended eventually and there was no blood drawn.
Anyway, without this being a pasta thread, any of you guys have any good, heated discussions, arguments, or debates about a certain food or cooking technique? Or non-food-related, whatever, I love a good argument.
