The arguments may be super serious and full of death stares in the moment, but they're hilarious to retell later on. We've got Reddit for proof of that. On Friday, Redditors shared the most ridiculous, small potatoes argument they've ever gotten into with a S.O.
Rapper Tef Poe, St. Louis activist Taurean Russell and Kansas City resident Jeffery Hill Jr. said they've been in Ferguson since Aug. 9, the day Michael Brown was shot to death by police Officer Darren Wilson. Although days of violent clashes between police and protestors have given way to two relatively calm nights of protest, Poe and Russell said anger is not diminishing.

NEW YORK (AP) ? Denny's is popping the cork on its first Manhattan location.
The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/1qMHWnj) the diner chain's Financial District debut is serving up a special combo putting a pricy bottle of Dom Perignon alongside its down home Grand Slam breakfast.
Yet the film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, is not without some charms. Tom Hardy, who plays the lead character, Bob, a laconic bartender, acts like some combination of Frankenstein, Ryan Gosling and Jake LaMotta. Hardy's entire performance is pitched toward a tone of bemusement that recalls the time Liev Schreiber said hello to a jar of cookies in "Walking and Talking." To wit: Hardy plays with a dog in "The Drop," which will make future GIF makers quite happy and should keep Tumblr in business for another year.
In a video uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, a man named Shane pops the question to his girlfriend on a paddle boat full of their friends. In her excitement, she playfully hits him and knocks the ring out of his hands and into the water.
WASHINGTON, Sept 5 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with the four leaders of the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, a senior congressional source said on Friday, amid rising concern in Washington about the advances of the Islamic State.
The source told Reuters the meeting would take place at 3:15 p.m. EDT (1915 GMT). Lawmakers return to Washington on Monday from their five-week August recess.
The meeting will include Harry Reid, the Democratic leader of the U.S. Senate, and Mitch McConnell, the chamber's top Republican, as well as John Boehner, the speaker of the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi, the House's top Democrat.
The topic of the meeting was not disclosed, but it is expected to focus on the threat posed by the Sunni militants.
Lawmakers from both parties have been calling on Obama to detail his plans for going after the group, which has seized swathes of Iraq and Syria and provoked outrage by releasing videos showing the gruesome beheadings of two American journalists.
Some have criticized the president for failing to present a strategy both to both Congress and the American public.
Obama said at a NATO summit on Friday that NATO allies stood ready to join the United States in military action to defeat Islamic State militants in Iraq as he vowed to 'take out' the leaders of a movement he said was a major threat to the West.
The meeting with the Congressional leadership was first reported by the Washington Post.

It was a "window into hell," he said. "Dramatic and violent."
